The rumor is that the new camera will break with Pentax tradition of letter-number names and will instead be simply labeled "Pilsner". The Pentax name will still be on the bottom plate next to the battery door along with the mark of the hociR.
Ah, a camera version of the beer goggles! That's pure genius. "What do you mean (s)he was ugly?! Just look at this here picture from last night!"

You mean that you understood all that? I am impressed.
Most of it. What I wasn't sure of I was able to interpolate.

Some of it was familiar from my college days when learning engineering. Some came from my post-academic days when I turned my interests to motor racing and things mechanical.

And some appeared to be extraneous subterfuge that certainly looked convincing, but since it has been a few years that I have actually applied such convoluted mathematical formulas to anything as our dear friend Karro did here.

One particular part of the calculations made by Mr. Karro that I especially liked was his desire to perform them in more favorable weather. Although when I was employed at PACCAR in the research and development group I noticed that they were eager to perform testing of heavy trucks in all manner of weather extremes, I was happy to have been but a Minor Minon in the Great Corporate Machine and excluded from the "Winter Test" each year at Yellowkinfe, NT, and the "Summer Test" on Eisenhower Pass and someplace down in Texas.

I always prefer the median climates, such as can be found in the Great Pacific Northwet.

I heard they were going to merge the event with Oktoberfest in Munich. The hociR is going to provide unlimited beer-maid copies. With enough beer in the belly and plenty of beer-maids*, those in attendance will be able to easily visualize the virtual FF camera and its virtual suite of lenses. The rumor is that the new camera will break with Pentax tradition of letter-number names and will instead be simply labeled "Pilsner". The Pentax name will still be on the bottom plate next to the battery door along with the mark of the hociR.

Die Deer Die!!!! It would be a lot easier than trying to hit em with the truck!!
Actually you could cut a deer in half with those things.

And if you got good with them you could dress and skin them.

People from two different countries speaking totally different languages speaking a terminology that no one can understand anyway, How existential is that?

that's not the worst case.
worst case is this: people speaking roughly the same language, using the same terms, but the terms have completely different meaning. now, that is where the trouble really is
