    Do you hide your cameras from your wife?

    I bet you're handy with power tools as well?

    Maybe I should have read the fine print beforehand!

I'm sure there are deep phsychological issues surrounding their behavior, but we (women in the South) tend to handle things in a different manner. Don't get me wrong; when treated incorrectly, we will set your car on fire; but give us respect and love and you've never been treated so well in all your life! Southern boys so love their mamas ... and women down here tend to base husband skills on how well a man treats his Mother.
    As we say over here: "Ne vent krigt mor 't wuf dat'n werd es...", freely translated it is something like this: "A men only gets the wife he deserves..."

    Silly wabbit.
    Put the small cameras inside the big cameras, the big cameras inside the bigger cameras and so on. You can fit a couple hundred Minoxes inside an 11x14.

    I've got a Century studio camera with a 5 foot bellows extension and a 10 by 12 film aperture.

    In extremis I can actually hide myself in ther camera

    Say you found it at a Estate sale for a deal, on the way from work, and couldn't pass it up.

    It's a photo turducken! (chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey - a uniquely American monstrosity for those not aware of the phenomenon).
