And really, why would anyone buy a K-3 before there is world peace and good weather all around. What kind of photographer would bring a K-3 into this vain and troubled world?
You are so altruistic Norm. Nice guy!

Actually it is not all raw. The tako (octopus) is steamed. The unagi (eel) is cooked, tastes like rainbow trout. The tomago (kind of an omelet made with eggs) is fully cooked. The shrimp is also cooked.

Oh, and there is no shit in that picture.
Sorry, goes to show how little I know about that stuff.

They tend to go off like a bomb when shot!
They do the same thing when run over. Every fall they must go in heat and lose their minds, never seen so many roadkill skunks as here. Phey.
edit: I will not buy K3 till it is certified to withstand RAW fish, skunk excrement/scat, sushi bar and Ludefisk.

How did this thread get so far off-topic? Unless you can make bacon out of possum meat.

Them Tarheels in Hooterville can! Like I said, they imported them when they migrated up my way, and their entire cuisine is based on Possum. But most of them wouldn't have the cash for a K3, or even know what one is.

From my childhood memories, I have the remembrance that possums smell good ... espsecially those that were "permanent sunbathing" along State Highway 2 in Pushmataha County - about half way between Clayton and Antlers - which runs alongside the former railroad track ...

Oklahoma State Highway 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also, my grandfather bought his land directly from the Choctaw Nation ... another reason not to get a K-3, because it offers no possible land purchases in Japan a part of a bundled package ...

Gloom, despair, agony on me! I've got five children, that's why I can't buy a K-3!
Don't blame Ricoh for your lack of priorities.

Yes!

Work is for people who don't know how to fish.

With this, you can make the perfect bacon bowl out of even a possum
