    12 step program for GAS.

    Graham Bennet (GM Bennet here on apug) sent me an email. Apparently Graham is suffering from GAS. I have a solution. For every 12 cameras you buy, you have to sell one. I have a box full of old Kodak Brownies in the basement that should last me a few months anyway.

    I learned the art of zen living this year. Buy a shirt, throw out a shirt...etc. For cameras, I have 3 complete sets of different 35mm brands. Anyone want a full manual Nikon kit

    And here I thought the only cure (temporary) for GAS was to acquire something.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I do this because the only way I can afford the next thing is by selling something older.

    Does it count if I first buy some Brownies before starting the cure ?

    The first twelve cameras you purchase are Brownies as the treatment is not retroactive. Then you sell one. Then you get into the Nikons and Hassys and Cambos and once you buy twelve of them you sell a Brownie. This way you can buy 132 cameras before you need to get another round of Brownies.
    Thank you.

    This is not a laughing matter. Acquisition is the only cure!
