    Soak tannin stained pots in a solution of sodium bicarbonate. The same thing revives all manner of tired old plastic drinks bottles. A bachelor friend serves tea in cups with deep brown stains. Call me squeamish but I can't enjoy the ghosts of a few hundred brews next to my lips.

    One should never use steel wool (or steel wool scouring pads such as Brillo) on stainless steel. Fine iron particles from the steel wool can get under the abraded-off chromium oxide surface passivation and then rust.
    Tim is correct. If you have a stainless vessel with rust stains from this practice, it is not difficult to re-passivate. Commercial passivation uses heated nitric acid solutions to dissolve the free iron and therefore passivate stainless, but at home a person could just use plain vinegar and letting it sit for a while, then rinsing with clean water. Heating it would speed up the process. It might take more than once. If it's a stainless pot, even cooking something acid like tomatoes will dissolve the free iron over time.

    Something to do with tea, I think.

    Wasn't it about someone who was given attention by carrying a dirty teapot pinhole camera?

    To get back on topic, if I were made fun of/given grief for using my analogue camera, I'd be inclined to say something like "well, I don't like your shirt/haircut/car/nose (or whatever was appropriate), but I was taught to be polite and keep my opinions to myself!"

    I confess I said something similar to someone who said to me "only retards still use Blackberry phones", when he saw me using mine. (Haven't seen him since!)

    (Reminds me of the story of Winston Churchill, who, when rudely and publically scolded by a lady "Mr Churchill, you are drunk!", replied, "and you, Madam, are ugly, but I shall be sober in the morning....". )

    Happy days!

    someone asked me a while ago if analogue photographers had "neckbeards"

    From Knowyourmeme.com-
    Neckbeard is a pejorative term referring to unattractive, overweight and misogynistic Internet users who wear a style of facial hair in which a majority of the growth is present on the chin and neck. Neckbeards are commonly associated with hipster stereotypes and Internet addicts who frequent websites like 4chan and Reddit.

    Of course, most of us here aren't hipsters or wannabes, so I think the correct answer might be something like- "No, now go back to your game closet."

    The only person who does is my printer, who gets away with it because he is a friend. He is a digital junkie and a commercial photographer so I cut him some slack.

    Mostly I get looks of wonder, as if I have mastered levitation, flying (without an airplane) or invisibility.
