Wisconsin is spraying beet juice and cheese whey from Provolone on icy highways. (This was reported on the Internet. And as is well known, only factual statements are permitted on the Internet.) Provolone is salty enough to work, and the beet juice and whey provide a cheesy and liquid bond to the ice so the salt does not blow away in windy conditions. If Wisconsin can do this with cheese remains, what could Pentax do? Might become a new WR technology suited for cheese lovers. Although then one's dog might eat the camera lens.

Next up: drained water from hotel hot tubs. It is salty, wet, and nobody else wants it other than maybe Wisconsin and Minnesota. And that is why I will wait to buy a K3 until the new WR technology is retrofitted for the DA Limited lenses.

MERDE !!! I got ripped off ... bought my K-5 in France from Phox Photo (Poitiers) ... eh, rather from "Numipixel" (their website), and I did not get no damn chesse ... merde, merde et merde.

Maybe there's a cheese deal for a silver K-3 with grip ... now the question is what cheese to select for an entire year ... Saint Nectaire is one of my favorites ... a good one on the outside smells like sweaty old gym socks forgotten in the bottom of the locker for a few days ...

Wisconsin does not smell as badly as Montana, around Missoula. The paper pulp mill there makes the entire city reek. A weekend in Missoula is like a year in Gary, Indiana. Wisconsin has limited and localized stink only. Except around Milwaukee,where I do not go and therefore cannot comment. Minnesota also has smelly places, I am told, although I have only found one, in Cloquet---another aged paper mill. I love Wisconsin: it is the Balkan state defending Minnesota from the east.

North and South Dakota also are Balkan states protecting my Homeland on the west. Pheasants and oil tracking could easily cross the Red River if not for these two wonderful states. (Disclaimer: Ancestors homesteaded at Hetland, South Dakota and were tractored out by the cat during the Great Depression of the 1930s, not the more recent one) , with family farm bulldozed.)

Wow, I just discovered why I won't buy a K-3. There is no need! I mean, can I possibly want for anything?

We're not very good with cheese, though

Dadgummit, I only missed one day this time. I feel like I just read a book catching up. Don't you folks have anything better to do? Oh wait, I'm no better... I keep coming back here. This thread just keeps sucking me in. That's why I won't buy a K-3 - I'm too busy reading this thread.

Tina, you're right. If you left home to buy a K3, it could take weeks to catch up on this thread.
I'm giving up: I just don't have the time!
(However, I have determined that before, and been sucked in again)
