    I just ordered and received 8 rolls of Kodak TMax 400 in 120 from Amazon for a future event. It arrived with Free Shipping (USPS with tracking), no State Sales Tax and fresh dates in the 2013 range, all the same batch. I was impressed.:wizard:

    Price: $ 3.99 a roll (Minimum order for free shipping it $ 25.00)

    http://www.amazon.com/Kodak-Profess...HOLG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1308140928&sr=8-4

    They have other films as well. I never considered them as a film source before, but I do look for zero tax and free shipping in whatever I acquire.

    hi lee

    you probably could get an extra 10 or 15% off as well if you subscribe+save
    so the dealer / amazon sends you the same amount of film every few months :smile:

    Just can not help myself. I was just released after 35 years in prison for hacking my English teacher from High School to death with an ax.

    I love Amazon for buying film, but I am unfamiliar with buying in quantities that are not multiples of five.

    I find it easier to buy the 5 packs or 20 packs, I know I will shoot it all long before it expires. I just bought two 5 packs of Tmax 100 a couple of weeks ago and it's almost time to get some more.

    This, from the O.E.D., including the first known use in print:

    Amazon is a great place to buy film. Fresh and selection isn't half bad. They have most of the Kodak, Fuji and Ilford current products. If you are a prime member, most of it comes with free two-day shipping. College students can (as of last fall anyway) get a free 1 year prime membership.

    "OK, I'll take the bait....WHAAAAAT??????"

    I don't know which part of the entry you are referring to, but the entry generally is thus:

    O.E.D.= Oxford English Dictionary. The single largest, most complete reference of the English Language. In its book form, it comprises 22 volumes, each at least 8.5x11".

    (θʌŋk)=Thunk's phonetic representation in the International Phonetic Alphabet

    Joc. var. think n. = explanation of probable etymology

    ***1922 Joyce Ulysses 503 Have a good old thunk=First recorded use in the English Language that can be located by researchers based around the world in English speaking places.

    "The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, 'Stink. Stank. Stunk!'" --from "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"

    Also reference the song "Thunk" by the Jefferson Airplane, from their album Bark.

    "Who'da thunk it?" is an old, old phrase, meant as a joke.

    It's not proper English, but quite commonly used.

    The proper phrase would be "Who would have thought it?"

    Well, as it happens, it is fun to play with the old-fashioned strong verbs and conjugate them by using the Indo-European ablaut. However, as far along as modern English is, many possible forms alread have other meanings, e.g., "dink, dank, & dunk" are forms that all have other meanings and that precludes their use as strong verbs together, as above.

    Some verbs have odd remnants of what might once have been a regular progression, such as hang, hung, and hung or hanged (for ppl.).

    I applaud youze guys for playing around with it, as that could stimulate you to learn.

    The OP obviously used the archaic past participial "thunk" for comedic effect, it is correct English but a form that's fallen out of common usage, like the phrase "in back" that is still used in the US that dates back to the seventeenth century in England and taken over to America by the first settlers that hasn't been in use in Britain for hundreds of years we say "in the back".
