    All the silver in Pennsylvania is used to make silver bullets. I think you will understand why when you read this quote from Wikipedia:

    "Traditionally, the silver bullet is the only kind of bullet for firearms that is effective against a witch, vampire, monster, or a person living a charmed life."

    My T-Max seems to be working just fine despite being shot, processed and printed in Pennsylvania... Weird.

    I am sure Bethe is well able to guard against advances by evil old photographers - to smooth things over at the camera club, though, perhaps at the next meeting she should make a point of admiring the size of this older person's filter mount.

    there was the time the manager of the (actually respectable) camera section of a dept. store insisted that his photographer friend's Leica M8 malfunctioned and Leica replaced it with an M9. He was adamant that I was mistaken about there not being an M9 .

    So which election are you referring to?
    So, are you saying every person in PA voted for Gore in 00? There had to be at least one who didn't!

When I said I was currently using T-Max 100, he said, "Do you know what the difference is between that and TriX? TriX has less latitude and has silver, while TMax has more latitude and no silver, just dye." I was tempted to ask him how you develop it then, since all developers are intended to convert the silver grains. I desisted.
    He must have gotten his "facts" from an online forum......

    Stupidity exposed!

    I own a lab in sydney and once had a client come in whom had shot a few rolls of 35mm film and wanted them processed. she brought the films in to me removed from their canisters totally exposed to light and asked me to develop them. I was confused and asked her why? and after confusion It all became clear to me she didnt understand that once you have shot on the film you shouldnt try to remove it from the canister unless your going to process it in the darkroom!!!!! The film was ruined and I still to this day am stunned that a grown woman forced open film canisters to remove the film and take it to a lab.

    I went to a workshop once when a young woman opened a full box of 16x20 paper. It said on the box "open only in photographic darkroom". Well, we were in the darkroom and the box did not say that the lights should be off!
