    Don't tempt me to a discussion of model intellect, it seems to swing between MIT grad to grade school dropout with no in between, makes you wonder...

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    "Well Boss, actually this is a digital camera. They use a memory card now... [off Gibbs's look] I'll put in the dooey-whacker."
    I've seen that episode... I think it was "doo-hickey" lol

    My vote's with the dropout, who's smart enough to use her looks while they're worth something in the market. As for college grads? I've known more than a few who weren't smart enough to come in out of the rain. I like both.

    There is that director of a photomuseum. When asked about film she thinks of video-cd's.

    So sure nothing wrong with that model of yours.

    I feel like an antique... And I'm not even close to mid-life-crisis age...

    I posted this in philosophy because I'd like to hear thoughts on this from a sort of philosophical view of age and life experiences.

    But to strike a blow for the model: Just because she doesn´t know film it does not necessarily mean she´s stupid. Just ignorant.
    How did Forrest Gumps mother used to say: stupid is as stupid does?
