    Hey darinwc;

    I live in sacto too and I've been to many 99c stores over the years and I have yet to find any film...but the walgreens near my house sells Kodak 800 for 7$ a roll!

    I guess I'm just not looking close enough...

    Poundland (Guess what the per item cost is there) Used to Stock Ferrania Solaris, which was excellent for arcitectural shots, as it had low saturation colour which gave a colourised look. They're now stocking Kodak Colorplus

    Cheap arse is usually diseased.

    Typical arse isn't cheap - comes with a 30 year mortgage. Watch out for balloon payments. Your property ends up floating away but you don't.

    Oh wait... I'm not talking about film. Even so, nothing's free.

    Probably but not always. I never buy "clearance" items either... not after getting shafted by Oriface Depot on some bad WD HD's. That was just the "last time" I bought something on clearance... seems like that's what retailers do when they want to dump their faulty merchandise on us consumers.

    Ehh... this may have no bearing what-so-ever in this thread but it's worth mentioning, I think.

    Even back in the day, you couldn't get 13 pieces of arse for 99c.
    Arse can be cheap, but very rarely given away. There are always hidden costs somewhere

    In U.K. English the use of the word "arse" is derogatory and has connotations of inferior, below par, poor quality. Overall it is a ruder word than it appears to be in U.S English. Cheap arse in the above context translates more accurately into the U.K. English "cheap skate" or "cheap and cheerful" which is closer to meaning cheap in the sense of very good value for money and useable while not top quality.

    Two nations separated by a common language.

    Not so "separated", sir. The word "arse" or "ass" is bad here too but often in the younger crowds it's used somewhat less than sparingly.

    Don't forget that the word "f*ck" meant to knock on something... a door, for instance, and the phrase "knocking her up" is a derivative. English, being a live language, does evolve. Someday soon using the term "arse" will mean it's good like "bad" or "sick". When one calls something "sick-ass bad" it already means it's "outlandishly good" and "bad-ass" has been "extremely good" or "exceedingly powerful" for a long time now.

    The film is ASA 200....blue and yellow box. Film container is typical Fuji, with the film cartridge being purple with "made in Japan" on it.

    I just developed five rolls along with a roll of Ektar 100. While the Ektar is a better film, the 99cent stuff is really nice.
