He was amazed that I regarded it as general knowledge.
    "Alluvium" is the unsorted particulate form of information that makes it's way from the professor's mouth (as he reads one chapter ahead of the students) through the graduate's ears, coming to rest in and clogging the never-to-be-used-again cerebral convolutions.

    I live near NYC so the only alluvium we've seen ever was from Hurricane Sandy which dropped about 4 FEET of ocean sand onto the streets and was quickly plowed away like snow. Lol

    Also the "global warning myth" isn't a myth at all, it's just planet shift and it is partly due to us and our lifestyle and habits, I saw a great picture commentary cartoon that summed it up really great...

    I've been teaching for about two months and I have already run into this.

    As far as recognizing film goes... In the Digital Photo class I'm teaching, I've used a couple film cameras to demonstrate certain things (like shutter speeds, or focusing). A couple of my students looked at me like I had grown an extra head when I pulled out the Nikon F3. But I don't think anybody in the class has never heard of film; some of them don't understand why anyone would still use film, but they all know what it is.

    Starting to sound like a broken record!

    (response) What's a 'record'?!

    OTOH, even a moron should be aware that film is still used to make many movies that they see, although digital projection is rapidly eliminating traditional projection units. But if the model only knows about video recording of porn, that might be the reason for the ignorance!

    That may explain her startled reaction when Stone told her he was going to shoot her on "film". She may have thought that B&W was an insider phrase for some kind of fetish genre.

    Anyone visiting Death Valley and took the time to actually read the roadside geography info signs (and not just look at the photos) should know what an alluvial fan is. Of course folks are on vacation, so who wants to learn anything...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
