    Where Do All The Darkslides Go?

    .
    Might I presume that all film backs come with a darkslide.

    If my presumption is correct, then where do all the darkslides go?

    Do darkslides go to the same place that the one sock ends up?

    I mean, there are many used film backs for sale, but most do not have a darkslide.

    For unrefined cameras that don't require the darkslide to remove the back they probably get permanently ditched.
    The one for my camera floats between this dimension and some parallel to the sock dimension.
    Usually, I can snatch it back into existance here when I really need it.

    Often the need to change backs in mid roll was rare. Thus the darkslides were nusance items. For those who don't buy their own film, it's sometimes easier to advance through the roll and reload than carry another back.

    They ran off with the missing socks from your laundry.

    I expect darkslides are just easy to lose, being a removal and relatively small item.

    Or maybe when a film back is left alone, the darkslides weave a cocoon then emerge as lightslides.

    No, I don't think that they run off with the socks. Socks are the juvenile form of wire hangars. The socks you think are missing have simply grown up and become adults that reside in your closets.

    The darkslides go to the same place the boats and planes that get lost in the Bermuda Triangle go. According to an old Sci-Fi Channel movie that I saw when i was a kid, that place is known as Atlantis. Also according to that movie, it could possibly return to this realm of existance through Stonehenge. I'd advise you scout around there to see if any turn up

    Now I'm tempted to find out the name of that movie to see if it still comes on Sci-Fi... The only think keeping me from it is most of the Sci-Fi channel movies arent that great :/
