    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    That reminds me of an episode of WKRP, when Les arranges a helicopter full of turkeys be dropped over Cincinnati as a Thanksgiving promotion by the radio station. "But I thought they could fly!"

    After I began typing, I realize that this is probably more amusing to me than others reading this thread. This was a show in the late 1970s to early 80s, about radio station and it's staff. Unless you're old and from the US, and remember watching the show, you probably won't get this reference.

    Oh, but that was a hilarious episode. I was almost in tears I was laughing so hard.

    I guess that means I'm old...

    My picture has been taken* and the camera will be back at the mercy of the British postal system on Monday

    * Was it just one picture or two? The frame counter is on 18 shots remaining and we are half way through its travel.

    It was one OR two photo's Steve.. we didn't want to put pressure on people to have to take more than the one, but there was enough for two if the moment struck you!

    Chris I remember WKRP in Cincinnati very well and loved the show.. However I didn't see that episode, mores the shame! So I guess that means I too must be old.. but I'm definitely not from the US!

    Erik and Fred I was particularly fond of Flowery Twats myself!

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    I guess I am old too, because I think that the turkey drop episode was one of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV, perhaps the funniest. "Oh the humanity!"

    I don't remember that one. That must have been during my 'naive' period.

    I think I might've seen it, granted, I was a little kid @ the time.

    Anyway, shouldn't that be...
