What has this thread got to do with photography?
Absolutely everything.

And it clearly defines why I (and we) will not buy a K3.

Undoubtedly.

. . . . . but I just cannot stand Wuthering Heights and in particular Heathcliff. Even for a Gothic anti-hero he's sickening and abusive.
But.

But.

But.

What did Heathcliff ever do to you?

Something wrong with these guys.

String Cheese (2.3)



The CEA has been attempting to get this cheese graded as Class 'A' for several months. It's not particularly dangerous or anything, we just don't think it's very good.

Duty charged per kilo:136
Nothing beats some string cheese in the lunchbox. Makes for a great snack during the second break. Healthy ans tasty too!

...Oh, wait, Fabulous Furry Freak Bros I think one of my early roomies may have liked them. I seem to remember a T-shirt design with them. She liked the indie and subversive comics. They're not really my thing, and after reading the wiki on them I don't think I'd have cared for the strip and it's tops.
Freewheelin' Franklin sez:

"Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope."

And this guy was their hero:

Pretty sure they did not care if there was sea-salt and fresh garlic and peppercorns.
They were "Hungry" for real.

Here, the locals were eating each other until not very long ago at all. (As recently as the 1840's) In Papau New Guinea, much much more recent still.

I was in Singapore last summer and a restaurant menu offered me a veggie burger containing a 'hearty portion of grilled vegetarians'. Kind of the opposite of what I was looking for ...
Mmmmm . . . . . . grilled vegetarians.

Tasty!

Mag,


He's a sample of Footrot Flats.
The strip is about a NZ bachelor farmer and his farm dog.
If you need any interpretation Mark Jerling could help.

I remember the fun reading that sometimes when I was young. Fits our style of humour over here.
