    So Sile, what is it? Do Republican Irishmen wear kilts? Or is it just the Scotch-Irish that brought their heritage across the Irish Sea?

    Inquiring Amuricans want to know.

    I have never known an Irish man to wear a kilt (and I really do thank God for that).. unless they had some Scots in them.. The Scottish on the other hand...

    I was once in Rome with my sisters on a girls weekend when we happened upon Campo Di Fiori after a Scotland vs Italy rugby match.. Every time a girl/woman/female of any species walked past a Scots man.. he raised his kilt.. and there were a lot of men in a lot of kilts..

    And no.. they really really don't ...

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

    Thank you. My Irish American Heritage has been upheld.

    Now where are the damned cameras?

    Breaking news on CNN:

    A guy with a white beard dressed in red has them - we are victims of Santa Cleptomania.

    Who is actually in charge of interrogating someone in the post office?

    They outsourced all of the interrogation jobs to India as well...
    Interrogator: Hello, my name Radhakrishna, where is package?
    Postal employee 1: I know nothing! I know nothing!
    Interrogator: Thanks you for calling, have a nice day.

    That was level one of the 'indian interrogation'.
    Next level of outsourcing will be like this:

    Interrogator: Hello, my name Radhakrishna, where is package?
    Postal employee 1: I know nothing! I know nothing!
    Interrogator: Thank you. You are fired. Have a nice day.

    so that's where going postal comes from then..
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.

    Pretty much. Back in the 1980's, there were some shootings that occured at some post office locations in California, if I remember correctly. Essentially, some postal workers went off their rockers and started shooting up the offices.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    I have a OM-1n with a hearing aid battery that worked yesterday. What are the rules that nobody follows and I'll send it loaded with a roll of expired Plus-X with 30 frames remaining.

    Amazing, I couldn't trade the camera and two lenses for 5 rolls of film, then I couldn't give it away. So I guess I could just mail it into oblivion. Or I'm going to drop kick it into the garbage and use some lens element to burn crawling creatures next spring.
