Its good to know that you have all pulled yourselves off the floor and back on the stools. Now belly up so we can have another round!
I think that we need more images in this thread.

So with great pride, I patriotically submit this ... a country made of future bacon!

I'm reading this thread for the first time and I'm confused how we got from the crotchety OP to 582 pages of replies. But it seems bacon and beer are somehow involved so this must be a good thread.

So based on OP's prognostications, is Adam going to change the name of the board to RicohForums.com?

Sorry JibbaJab.
You cannot come in half way through.
Return to the start and read every post!
There will be a test when you catch up; I cannot tell you what the pass mark is, but you better achieve it or the moderator will come down on you like a ton of hot bricks.

Welcome to the clubhouse ...

Adams has already done it (in very fine print); plus the last two review/flashes were about the hociR Theta and hociR WG-4 ...

And now for some more image silliness ... patriotic "Bleu, Blanc, Rouge" as it's done here :

some men still cannot grasp the finer details of the art of sneaking the latest stuff into the cave, er, I mean home.
The secret lies in plausible deniability. A*200mm Macro - "Just an old manual lens I thought I'd try. Nothing fancy like those new auto -focus ones." Hocir 3K Limited Edition - "It's the silver one and will probably scratch up but the new black one seemed too expensive". Distraction is effective too. "Here's the new lens I got you, honey. 18-135mm." While she's distracted, you leave the other little box containing the FA 31mm in the shipping pack and head for the back room.
I could go on but ...

My husband isn't a photographer so I don't have this brilliant recourse. When my lenses arrive, it usually entails me yelling, "DON'T JUDGE ME! Lens Buying Addiction is a serious condition!" and retreating to the back room to be alone with my gear.

Ahhh. That makes sense.


See folks; it's insight like that that makes this thread what it is.

But that's cheating. You don't play by rules. You're from the distaff side. (And any left-brain advice proferred to us, the weaker sex, will be greatly appreciated.)

Don't make things so complicated. I was convinced at "getting on our good side".

One last question then: did any of the moderators entertain the idea of changing OP's user name to hociRdude? Because that would have been hilarious.
