It's currently Valentine's Day in America and usually on this special day everyone goes out of their way to spend as much money as possible to impress the opposite sex, usually with flowers, chocolates or a puppy.

However, the Team Fortress 2 Development team over at Valve think all that is a bit over-the-top and far to expensive. Their solution? A $100 in-game diamond ring, which is apparently useless, but just shows how much you really love that someone.
What if we told you that you could waste as much as 1/6 less money this Valentine's Day? What if we added that you could do it without even leaving your house? Then what if we sweetened the deal further by saying sorry for calling you stupid earlier?

Introducing the "Something Special For Someone Special". It's ring-shaped, it's gift-wrapped, it's basically useless, and it's really expensive ($100!). In short, it's the most accurate simulation of an actual Valentine's Day gift ever made available to the public.

Here's how it works:

First, it's not tradable, only giftable. When it shows up in your special someone's backpack, they can click on it to open a menu that will let them accept your proposal. Once the proposal's been accepted, a message will be broadcast to the entire TF community that will include your name, your special someone's name, and whatever you decided to call the ring. Then presto, the gift turns into two matching diamond bands you can wear in the rain while you smooch up a storm, you crazy kids.
Valve showed how successful hats can be, so it's no real wonder that they are trying to see if this avenue can be populated with other items, like the diamond ring. The question is, would you buy it?

Anyway, today's Valentine's Day, and that means if you're dating or married, you're going to drop somewhere in the area of $600 tonight on flowers, dinner, babysitters, hot air balloon rides

Recently I have had a lot of trade requests through steam, and I've been handing out crates and duplicate weapons for free, because guess what they're a f*****g worthless.
Apparently my perceived generosity has been misinterpreted because now I have c**** asking me to buy them s*** in the steam store with real actual money, even more useless s*** like backpack expanders.
The other night I spent a couple hours reading about trading and the 'mannconomy' and I can't wrap my head around why the hell someone would spend real money on in-game weapons. From what I saw some of this stuff goes for between $60-$150.
I don't get it.
Mentals.
