    Yes, you read that right. $2.8 MILLION euros.

    Honey, you know that camera I was thinking about buying but hadn't because I thought maybe just possibly it was too expensive? Yeah, about that...

    Maybe the owner of the Leicashop and the Westlich himself, remember the Daguerreotype camera that recently sold for a record sum well it's standing in the Westlicht Gallery next to some other beautiful cameras. Maybe on permanent loan who knows

    Its a piece of history you cant beam yourself to these days. May be first time traveller will be a very rich man. By this way I was reading science news and reach to a point there is no life in universe because nobody beam itself to here or go back in time and stop the wars and diseases. If there would be a UFO , at least they would stop the diseases if they are not s.. of b....

    I think it would be better to buy film for all that money instead and skip the GAS. Or donate some of it to APUG.

    Collecting, a type of hoarding.

    Some people hoard money, some hoard objects and others hoard people.

    Some do it for prestige, love, respect or acknowledgment.

    Seems kinda sad.

    But some also do it to preserve and share.

    Not sure what this was.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
