    I think this video was shot with a Hasselhoff

    I just ordered myself Bronica. I expect my ITAH ratio to increase at an impressive rate now.

    I teach middle school. I bring my cameras in from time to time to prove a point. I always get asked if the "TV" on the back of my LF cameras shows the digital pictures as a slide slide show. Then I ask them what they mean by slide show and they say "you know when the pictures change on a computer."

    of course when I brought a vinyl record in this year one kid walked in and exclaimed "That's a big ass CD, man!"

    Recently, I was on the way to get some money from an ATM at my local bank, in the company of my 15-year old granddaughter. I told her that she was lucky, because when I was her age, you could only go to the bank between 10:00AM and 3:00PM, Monday to Friday. Her reply was, "You mean that the bank machines were only open at those times?"

    I missed a word.

    I meant that people don't seem to think film is available anymore.

    I have posted this before but thought it was appropriate again because of recent discussions.

    I figure this one is close enough to share here. I had my 124G out tonight and stopped in at a bar. The patron next to me looked at it and asked "Is that one of those..ugh..Rolexes?"

    Close enough I thought Mine just keeps time in much smaller increments.

    Why did you have to say "Polish guy" and not just guy.
