DMEight masked gunmen made a hole in a security fence at Brussels’ international airport, drove onto the tarmac and snatched some $50million (£32m) worth of diamonds from the hold of a Swiss-bound plane without firing a shot. The gang used fake police cars in their daring raid late yesterday, grabbed the cache of stones and sped off into the darkness. ‘They tried to pass themselves off as police officers,’ said Anja Bijnens, spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor’s office. They reportedly wore outfits which resembled dark police clothing and both cars had blue lights on top, she said. Police found one burnt-out vehicle close to the airport later that night and said they were still looking for clues. The heist was estimated at some $50million (£32m) in diamonds, said Caroline De Wolf of the Antwerp World Diamond Centre. ‘What we are talking about is obviously a gigantic sum,’ De Wolf said.

Here is a life lesson for anyone looking to succeed in anything involving the internet and opinions: you can’t win. Ever. Even if you’re right. In fact, being right is often the first step to being ridiculed on the internet. So for anyone who wants to blog or act or create music just know that everyone on the internet is going to hate it and offer their two cents as to why they hate it…even if they love it.

Take for example last night’s amazing $50 million jewel heist. Makes Danny Ocean’s Bellagio job look like amateur hour with his bullshit unnecessary flipping Asians and comic relief Bernie Mac. Yet even when a team of highly-skilled, highly-focused, and extremely ballsy jewel robbers successfully steal $50 million worth of diamonds from an AIRPORT, somebody still has something to say:

“Diamonds are a waste of time…Russia has recently announced that it has tons of diamonds waiting to be mined in one of it’s craters…if you want REAL WEALTH, buy gold and silver…getting scarcer by the day!”

Really, James Esquire? Getting $50 million in free diamonds was a waste of time? Why didn’t you tell somebody before they went and wasted all their precious 11 minutes!? Now they’re stuck in Europe with $50 million of worthless diamond garbage when they could be hanging out in Bonobo City with you and your increasingly valuable gold and silver stockpiles. What a shame.

Never change, internet.
