    Whats wrestling? Wrestling is when two big guys hopped up on steroids scream at each other for 10 minuts, then do some bad acting, and hit each other with chairs until one of them fakes that they are seriously injured and unconscience.

    As a former Iowegian now moved to Australia one can only shrug their shoulders at an Iowa defeat (I think the place has been defeated for 150 years or better). "It's not your fault if you're born in Iowa, but it is your fault if you die there." Besides, it's hard to find good pictures in Iowa.

    Isn't Iowa the team Dan Gable coached? I've never wrestled, but if this is the team I'm thinking of, then anybody beating Iowa is a sign of things changing. However, I was always too busy playing basketball to know much about wrestling...

    If civilization in Iowa were ended the IQ rating of the rest of the world would doubtless increase

    You obviously didn't belong here David & it sounds like we're better off without you. Our IQ is low enough as it is, right?

    It's not hard at all to find good photos here, you just have to open your eyes.

    You're right Troy, Dan Gable did coach the Hawkeyes, as well as an olympic wrestling team or two. They haven't been the same since he left. I'm not really a wrestling fan, but can't get enough of Hawkeye football.

    Not for me. I couldn't begin to get digital that I'd be happy with for five large -- but I could set myself up with a nice 8x10 and at least 2-3 lenses, plus the darkroom setup I'd need (at least for contact prints) and still have money left over to buy film and paper...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Turkish Oil Wrestling

    Here is some real wrestling. Turkish Oil Wrestling. None of that Wimpy college stuff. What the article does not say is these guy put their hands down each other's pants for a better hold :o But I would not laugh at them for it.

    Yes, well, me too. But I think I'd only end up with two lenses for my 5x4 and enough change for a box or two of film.
