    Tim - I think Ray's talking about the Mayan Calendar/Planet Nibiru "scare" ( http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012.html ) and not some alleged Second Coming/Rapture legend.

    We know exactly when the Mayan Calendar rolls over into the next long count cycle.

    Actualy, canninbalism is a viabal solution to a number of problems facing an overpopulated planet. Actualy, humans are the only species which slaughters. It is only reasonable that we deserve what we hand out.
    A milder solution is something that has been tried out by the pork industry. Pig group one is fed with corn,soy, and whatever pigs get. Pig Group two gets only the excriment of Pig Group one. Pig group three has its normal diet suplimented by excriment from pig group two.
    Is that not how Capitalism works?

    Cannibalism is abhorrent to us because we are not fully civilzed! At the price of meat today, if we did not consider cannibalism abhorrent, well..........

    Hi everone,
    Unfortunatly, I have not been able to get my flatbed scanner going. I fear it may be shot. Since I require the ability to scan 8x10 negatives, a replacement will not be cheep, therefor not today. Maybe in March.
    Meanwhile, I have shot and processed some film speed 320 of this emulsion + steigmann's. This was all done indoors, first with windowlight, then at night with ordinary incandescent light.
    I was able to get images both times. But detale was scarce, especialy with the night photos. Ithink that this ma be due to the emulsion being only blue sensitive. I am saving the plates to scan latter.
