We still go for a swim in winter too, you just need to bring a chainsaw for the ice 😊
"We"?! I'm fully aware some crackpots do such things around here, but I refuse to be included in that madness!

Now, bathing in the snow after a good cooking in the sauna, that is something I can enjoy.

WARNING:

I have reason to believe that the Pentaxians of the world have been brainwashed by none other than the evil hociR. There is strong evidence that it is gathering a large cult-like following, a cult which threatens our very existence. As a former Asahian, I am a witness to it nearly every day. If you are an artist you might have seen it yourself. The vacant-eyed teens and fifty-something's coming into camera stores demanding what on the surface appears to be some harmless machine. Stuff, if you will.

I assure you, there is nothing harmless about it. If you've followed this thread, you know what I'm speaking about. Do you remember the spiel? "Excellent high ISO image quality. Shoots at 8.1fps. Fast, 27-point autofocus system. In-camera shake reduction. Selectable simulated low-pass filter. Weather-sealed design. Pentaprism viewfinder. Sharp rear display. Top-notch control layout. Dual SD card slots. PC sync flash socket, hearts, stars and horseshoes, clovers and blue moons, pots of gold and rainbows, and red balloons.!" This is code-speak, the hociR's sinister way of distinguishing followers of his evil cult.

New initiates into this nefarious cult mark themselves with Pentax. As their rank in the dark underbelly of photography rises so changes the mark of evil which they use to distinguish themselves. The order of rank can be determined by the tattoo which they carry. Lower ranking members have Asahi tattooed on their arms, intermediate members carry the mark of ayoH, only the highest ranking, most twisted vile members, to prove themselves, are rewarded with the infamous mark hociR, hidden on the camera back where only they can see it; emblazoned in ink inside the bikini-line where only disillusioned partners might observe.

I urge you to stop feeding your friends and peers this subversive misinformation on the merits of what is euphemistically termed 'The Flagship', as the consequences are too horrible to fathom... Do you want your child to be a minion of evil? Do you want your off-spring to long for FF after experimenting with 24 MP's.

I think not but that's where it starts.

(I will add more information as it becomes available and answer any questions as fully as I can.)
jac, I'm sure I have read this somewhere before...

Ah, yes, found it: HERE!

Plagiarism!

I seem to have been thrown off of the discussion because the semester started-- or maybe this thread has just become so off topic that it's impossible to know what's happening. Where did the studded tire discussion come from? I have some for my bike
It just bounced in from some alternate dimension that is tangential to ours (like most things in this thread...). Just go with it

Ok, so when do we get to see pics of our favorite quasi-medieval Viking swordmaiden, in full regalia and armour, riding the frozen vastness of the Northlands on her studded-tire bike? Under an amazing aurora borealis display, of course.

When the sun stops being so placid and friendly and throws some more magnetic storms our way. And also when somebody finds a suit of armour that would fit an overgrown stickbug.

That's why they have to keep it covered and well isolated away from all known life + you can see its power as it glows in the dark.
Guarded and watched over by that horned lady on the bike
