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.
and if you enter the site through the banner advert here on apug

Sink, sank, sunk.

Now that is a double winner!

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.

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

Can't wait for the flashback playing Bark again.

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

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

Well, as it happens, it is fun to play with the old-fashioned strong verbs and conjugate them by using the Indo-European ablaut. However, as far along as modern English is, many possible forms alread have other meanings, e.g., "dink, dank, & dunk" are forms that all have other meanings and that precludes their use as strong verbs together, as above.
Some verbs have odd remnants of what might once have been a regular progression, such as hang, hung, and hung or hanged (for ppl.).
I applaud youze guys for playing around with it, as that could stimulate you to learn.
