Velveeta has the property that if kept at room temperature it will not spoil for - well, we don't really know how long yet.
If it came in a tube, that might make it excellent back woods camping food. I'm sure you could mix it with something and it would taste OK. Jars aren't allowed in interior Algonquin.

That also could be said about a nice wheel of gouda, so long as the wax coating isn't broken. Velveeta does have to be refrigerated after the wrap is opened.

Funny , when I make a grilled cheese sandwich my cheddar melts smoothly. Velvet was designed to spread smoothly at 70 degrees. That's not a characteristic of any cheese I'm aware of, maybe someone can fill me in.
My experience with cheddar is that it tends to separate and get stringy and oily. The French stinky cheeses might count as "spreadable" - some claim that Brie is best when a little "runny".

You mean the inevitable disappointment when a new Pentax camera turns out to just be a camera, instead of a ball of light and energy that defies physics and instantly makes the owner cool and sexy and the envy of every Nicanonista? Haven't we been down this road before? (with the K-3II, K-3, K-5II...)
Wait a minute! What are you trying to say here?! You're not implying that the upcoming ball of reality defying light is not going to fulfil all the very reasonable expectations expressed in the FF threads, are you?

i hang out over there. Somebody has to do it.

They made us an almost-D810. They made it for us, not CaNikonians. It is really a neat camera with a surprise yet to come (pretty big deal too).

People are already dissing it.

Sigh.




OK, you can now return to the regularly scheduled programming.

You... hang out there?

Ok, don't worry, we can sort this out, I'm sure.

Who did this to you?

Do they have your family?

Do they know you're secretly coveting K-3? All six of them?

Do they threaten to apply the "Velveeta treatment" to you?

A bit of ooze is really not bad here ... trust me.

We do this every time. It's as predictable as the folks who look at early product photos and declare that the new body must be mirrorless or modular with swappable mounts and/or sensors. Every time, I read the posts, shake my head, and say "no, it's just a Pentax camera. It'll be similar to previous Pentax cameras. And that's a good thing."

I'm not talking about cameras, I'm talking about unrealistic forum members who whine about cameras! Where else can I do that, if not a thread born of someone whining about a camera?

Should we start a pool for nitpicky reasons why people won't buy the K-1?

I think it is 100 years, but can't factually verify it. I can tell you that once we were re-plumbig a house for a buyer, the house had been vacant for 17 years and boarded shut. Among the debris inside was an unopened box of Velveeta. We opened it and cut away the foil wrapping.....it looked pretty good and had no rancid odor or color. We didn't try it, but the neighborhood dogs ate it and none of them died.

Norm, do you realize that you are inching closer to becoming a Velveeta eater? When I get up your way, I'm gonna have a couple of boxes for you, count on it!

Just saw this....your cheese have that nice "woody" flavor? Wonder no more!

Waterloo, US-218, Northbound. Just crossed the Cedar River, and passed the fairgrounds.


Part of a 'shortcut' I used between I-90 in Minnesota and places like the Terex factory in Cedar Rapids, the Alcoa plant in Ravenswood, the Dreamliner factory in North Charleston, and many other customers South and East of there.


It gave a nice change of pace from running I-80, which is arguably the busiest interstate in North America.


You might also recognize this:




Terex, I remember their 300 ton trucks from the coal mine I worked at in 1980, where I got the money to buy my first Pentax, the MX.

I will finish my BSc soon and am currently applying for MScs, the vast majority of the universities I am looking at starts in August/September. I don't even know where I will end up, so I cannot really work out a deal with anyone. Plus it would probably be a bit dodgy to apply somewhere and immediately ask whether they're fine with me skipping the first bit
Sure would where I work.

...so long as the Milk Protein Concentrate doesn't come from China.

(most MPC in the US is imported, but not from China... yet.)
