I also drank the Kool-Aid and now have the dreaded hociR. Must admit it is a nice tool. Love the Auto White Balance.

We should always refer to the movie Clue for a way to explain or dispel the hociR.

I guess... how do you know when one has gone past the point of no return.
When the ophthalmologist hands you a prescription for glasses.

Argggg! I was wrong! Adorama does do the body, DA 50/1.8, grip, and card for the body-only price. I am doomed, doomed. Already I can feel the hot brand of the hociR on my cheek!


Steve
it's when you feel the hot breath of the hociR on your neck, you really need to start worrying, mate..

It's OK Steve! The name will only be recognised by people looking at you in a mirror!

That describes the problems with photographing creatures like Centaurs, Pisces, Capricorns and Leos perfectly. They intersect, even permeate everything from their level, yet remain unfathomable - even for a lens with f/0.0.

Or maybe exactly not?
An interesting point of view! The upcoming Pentax 1mm f/0.0 HHHD WR could actually do the job. Only two problems now:

1. Mental focusing must be cleared by removing greasy stuff like cheese and ham that may reside in the brain. Certain thoughtforms will otherwise not be received.

2. The wavelength radiating from these astrological creatures - are sensors in the cameras of today actually able to absorb spiritual wavelengts?

Jeez, cut that out, will ya? I just had a really hairy flashback.*

* My first real date was to see raiH at Powell Symphony Hall in St. Louis. My mother drove us and father picked us up. I still remember her name, phone number and . . . . . other things. (IOW, her parents DID NOT KNOW about the . . . . visible HAIR . . . . . They were not amused. Little did they know it wasn't the first hair . . . . . )

It only hurts for a day or two, then it fades and you don't really notrice any more. The deep, angry, red reverse 'R' incised on your forehead, though, remains as The Mark of Shame forever.

Terri Gross interviewed a gal on Fresh Air the other day who wrote a book about our digestive tracts. It details some very interesting and neat things about the path of nutrition as it enters our mouth and proceeds through the system, ultimately exiting the other end.

The book also covers many of the things that go wrong. One of those things is when the critters that live in our bowels get messed up, and the delicate balance goes awry. The doctors have developed a procedure to fix this problem.

A fecal transplant.

Yes, you read that right.

A fecal transplant from the bowel of a person with a healthy intestinal tract to that of a person whose bowels are not doing what they should. The excreta is removed from the healthy person, quickly processed by the doctors (the critters that live in there cannot live where there is too much oxygen) and then placed into the intestines of the person who has the bad critters.

Ain't science and medicine great?

Probably, "the way she looked, the way she'd act and the colour of her hair".
