Come to think of it, wasn't tea what the British wanted in the opium wars?


Yes. But the c 1843 Commons debate that led to the war did not mention tea or opium and barely mentioned the fact that they were discussing going to war at all. (I read the Hansard record of it once, about 1985.) The debate took about 3 days (with no recipe book reading).


Sir Robert Peel, the inventor of the modern police force was a participant in the debate.


The division, which occurred with a rowdy call for division was very evenly balanced at, IRC, about 263 to 266.

Seems to me that the massive pentax logo on the back is an apology for the K-3 mess up
The pre release version of the K-3 had the Pentax logo on the rear Then the livE hociR got to it

Yes, but the hociR remains unimpressed.

There's a poll about the new EOS M3 on dpreview - I especially like the last answer option! Now, dpreview being absolutely annoyed about the K3 is obviously another reason not to buy this contraption.

Actually, I see that as a good reason for buying one!

We all know the hociR is capable of destroying Tokyo - but what if it could also topple the evil empire of weiverpD... Epic battle!

This cannot be right, just checking in after being away for the day and notice no posts to this thread for about 11 hours.

I am going to have to get my valuable information and knowledge from somewhere else.

Need to get a drinky to sooth my nerves

Working always soothes the nerves, so I suggest you could try to get me some some of your region's finest produce (scones and clotted cream) and ship it up here to me?

Besides, it's almost 2 am now - go to bed!

Yep, I hate to say it but this thread is running out of steam.
I think I will go and find a thread about why I won't buy a K-S2, or a Siggy 150-500 or something.
I might have to start my own!

Indeed. All participants have been absorbed by the hociR, whose tentacles now encompass all PF threads.

Keep that Silly Grin pasted on your face.

Carry On.
