    Amazon is a great place to buy film. Fresh and selection isn't half bad. They have most of the Kodak, Fuji and Ilford current products. If you are a prime member, most of it comes with free two-day shipping. College students can (as of last fall anyway) get a free 1 year prime membership.

    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    "OK, I'll take the bait....WHAAAAAT??????"

    I don't know which part of the entry you are referring to, but the entry generally is thus:

    O.E.D.= Oxford English Dictionary. The single largest, most complete reference of the English Language. In its book form, it comprises 22 volumes, each at least 8.5x11".

    (θʌŋk)=Thunk's phonetic representation in the International Phonetic Alphabet

    Joc. var. think n. = explanation of probable etymology

    ***1922 Joyce Ulysses 503 Have a good old thunk=First recorded use in the English Language that can be located by researchers based around the world in English speaking places.

    "The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, 'Stink. Stank. Stunk!'" --from "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"

    Also reference the song "Thunk" by the Jefferson Airplane, from their album Bark.

    "Who'da thunk it?" is an old, old phrase, meant as a joke.

    It's not proper English, but quite commonly used.

    The proper phrase would be "Who would have thought it?"
