So the Borg will align with hociR to force kids to buy a K-3 and thus destroy Toyco! Now that's a screenplay! Better than the zombie squirrel attack I'm trying to market!
No, no, it's a Spielberg movie... the adults are manipulated by the sight of kids (brats, typically) in danger. Kids wouldn't buy a K3, it's Mom and/or Dad who are supposed to buy one to save the children!

By the end, I'm ready for the T-Rex -- er, hociR -- to swallow the brats whole...

Yeah ... that's our laundry room after the renovations. Think that I will paint the walls mat black so that it's a REAL darkroom !!!

Another reason "why I won't buy a K-3" TM ... paint is expensive in France.
Don't do black!!!

White is the appropriate color, assuming that the room is light-tight. With black, your safelight become completely useless!

Merci, Steve ... I was just kidding about the black ... I'll use sunglasses instead !!! (Now it will be harder to see a potential mark of hociR)

Dangerous chemicals, darkness, what a great combination.

Sounds like your average frat party!
Doesn't sound like any frat party I ever went to. The only dangerous chemical I ever saw at a frat party was Hydrogen Peroxide.* (unless you consider 50 / 50 Hi-C and Everclear a dangerous chemical.)

Dangerous, men. Dangerous.

Pledge to Big Brother: "I've decided. I'm going to dance with the tall one."
Big Brother to Pledge: "Idiot!! Phi Delts ask. Tri Delts decide."




* Unlike K3, all Tri Delt's are blonde. Which is why I didn't buy one.

Hydrogen peroxide can be very dangerous.

See the big price drop for the K3 (in the US, we don't experience thus sort of trashing of a product in Oz!)
If it is now so cheap, it must be not worth buying. I'm not going to get one and be thought a cheapskate.

It can only be dangerous in the hands of those who cannot handle liquor. Although I have enjoyed a Spodie* back in the day, these days I prefer to enjoy the taste of alcoholic beverages, rather than try to destroy large numbers of brain cells in short order.



* (cut up a bunch of fresh fruit, soak in Everclear overnight, then eat the fruit. Mmmmmm . . . . . . . . . . tasty! *hic!* )

Sounds like me and my friends watching the Hannibal season 2 finale... When he finally went into full on serial killer mode and started slaughtering them all we were like "GO Hannibal! F-bloody h- it's about time!" We were so sick of him just killing artfully off screen, cooking long pig and sneakily serving it up, playing "sympathetic misunderstood psychiatrist" all the time that when he finally did go full blown Hannibal the Cannibal we practically toasted it in champagne. Watching the last 15 mins of that season ender it was glorious, particularly the part in the airplane. It was just magnificent!
