I'm so immersed in the film world that it always startles me when a gray balding well to do nicely dressed gentleman says, "oh really, you can still buy film?" The last guy that said that at least was aware B&W film was till available. Unfortunately he thought that was all there was because his only interface with the film world was some photography students that worked on one of his large industrial properties. That was the thought process. He saw some students using B&W so he assumed that's all there was. I'm sure if all he saw was some lomography stuff he would assume that's all that was left.

YOU CAN FREEZE FILM?! Yes, sir. You can freeze it. CAN YOU KEEP IT FOREVER?! Mmmm.... no. Something about background radiation that still penetrates the fridge. But it'll keep for years. I then excused myself and went and took some pictures.
