    Put a Twinkie in a bird feeder and it will kill more than two and some may get stoned!

    I wonder if a thick layer of Twinkies could stop cosmic rays. Sure, Twinkies can stop a heart!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I second the salt mine idea. That's what I use :-).

    Which dimension did you have in mind?

    A freezer is (should be) a constant environment controlling humidity and temperature, the bane of anything perishable, especially anything with organic compounds, even in trace amounts. Any need to freeze film depends on the alternative storage methods and time constraints.

    Waste Isolation (Plant/Project/?) New Mexico or Nevada. Store atomic waste in a salt mine. This was maybe 10 years ago, possibly more. I'm sure someone will correct me. (Oh, and I do remember "Wip Inflation Now!". Just wish I had kept my lapel pin.)

    If your freezer is old enough it should shield you from a close range atomic blast... so says indiana jones lol

    If that works you better hurry, Hostess is filing chapter 11. But if it does, at least you know the Twinkies will last forever

    Kodak gave us lapel pins for every major thing along with coffee cups. I have them all. Maybe I should sell them!

    Typical frost free freezers use heater element to raise the temp enough to melt the little front that builds up. It happens few times a day. So.... that means the temp inside does go up and down on regular basis. I guess THAT doesn't hurt anything?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
