Update


Actually this understates the total since it was under branches and exposed to the wind. I'd say we got 7" but it was light, dry stuff not the water-logged crap we usually get.
You should have put the whole six pack out there. Then you would have ice cold beer for free.

Unlike the overpriced K3, the price of which is keeping me from buying.

This thread is supposed to be about why you won't buy a K-3, not why you didn't Today, I won't buy a K-3 because either Adorama or B&H require a 2 block detour on my way home from work. I won't buy a K-3 until they relocate to a more convenient location.

Cheese.
Bacon.
Beer.
2 blocks?

More like 3,000 miles for me, depending on what part of the country I'm working.

I will buy a K3, because this thread has brought the camera to legendary status

No! No! No! Doing so will anger the Hocir and bring about the destruction of Tokyo and the wastage of much cheese!

You must resist!

And also if you do that, after the Hocir destroys Tokyo and converts all good cheddar to road brine, you will be force-dressed in a surplice and cotta and sing in the Choir of the Fans.

I do love my beer cave (garage) in the winter. That is about the only thing nice I can say about the season.

That Bacon better be Gluten free.
And, I am not buying the K3 because, it did snow enough to plow for several hours today.

Bacon?

Phtt!

Y'all need some of this.

Peameal bacon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Now that's bacon that will keep the K3 off my shopping list.

Jean, that bacon is round. Round slices. Is this some kind of Canikon bacon? Bacon is sliced, 1.5" x 8" with slight variations caused by who knows what. Actually, I remember encountering round bacon slices,in Montreal. I thought at the time the package was Oscar Meyer bologna (apologies to Italy).

I cannot buy a K3 until this mystery of the Round Bacon is solved. Perhaps the Bacon for the Round Table?

They tend to do things different, like spelling OTAN, I think that might be linked with HOCIR. The plot thickens.
Reason right there, not to buy the GNIHT.

It is pea meal bacon, the original Canadian bacon. That stuff they sell in the states is not Canadian bacon.

Kinda like putting that "word" on the back of a K3.

Having been served by Canadians, a Canadian breakfast, couple of times...Oh My.
I swear they thought we were real lumber-jacks and ready for that 6 thousand calorie plate full of goodness
And after almost finishing that platefull, no way I would buy that 3K.
