    I close my eyes so tightly when I load holders that I no longer have to turn the lights out.

    Yup - eyes shut, right toe pointing just slightly to the right, and tongue pointing to the left.
    Sheet film goes in soo much more smoothly that way.

    eyes shut and when rolling film onto reels i often turn around and around and around, usually unawares. the first time this happened i didn't notice the turning at all and was quite befuddled to find that the counter and the door where not where i had left them.

    Eyes open. I develop sheet film and sometimes roll film in open tanks. I can be in the dark for over an hour at a time, over two if I am developing 8x10 in trays. I learned a long time ago I get a headache after about ten min. if i try to keep my eyes closed

    Eyes closed loading film for developement or loading film holders for shooting. this is done in total darkness or even when using a changing bag.

    The other day I was in my film loading room and was loading film onto spools for processing. When I was done I opened my eyes only to realize the door was open. The room is in the basement and it was at night so there was next to no light and the film was fine.

    Weird?? You call that weird? I'll show you *WEIRD* ...
    Not only that ... I drink a LOT of coffee ... I show you WIRED weird!!
    I keep my eyes closed even when using a changing bag but I do take my glasses off for some reason.

    Coffee yep make it and drink it in the darkroom (well my wife does keep calling it the kitchen). Best one for me if Java so you see I prefer to be traditional in photography and my coffee, no digi stuff at all if I can help it.

    Arrrrh I'm typing this on a laptop ......

    Hah - I suspected as much!
    Actually I've found the film manufacturers very accomodating of the Coriolis Forces, and perhaps something to be aware of, if one ever travels to the Antipodes. Plaase make a note that our customs dept have a special policy that no film may enter the country unless the emulsion is on the Other Side.
