I agree, it's a pretty snake. And no trouble at all, really. You can see them from time to time, but I've never been bitten. My dog was once, but other than sneezing and scratching his nose for a few seconds it didn't have any lasting effects on him. Maybe it taught him not to sniff snakes :D

I somehow don't think they're doing much of anything for free :hmm: Actually, looking at Bezos' net worth I'm certain they don't :D

Amazon used to sell crocodile biltong, but it's no longer available. Not that it matters, because they refuse to send anything but books to Norway anyway. I have no idea why. They let me put stuff in the cart, even telling me shipping will be free, but at checkout time they've decided that this item can't be shipped to that destination. And, of course, if they do ship (books only) there's always a shipping fee, usually considerably higher than the value of what you want to buy.

Oh, sorry, that's not true. They still haven't charged for shipping of ebooks :D

Our politicians aren't half bad, really. Well some of them aren't. But then we have lawyers...

Right, snakes. We have one venomous kind, the common European viper. The bite isn't much more painful than a bee sting, so nothing to fear unless you're allergic. Gramps got bitten a lot. Once when coming back from working in the woods he complained over an itchy back, and when he pulled off his shirt a viper fell out :D

Pentax K-1 reputation for "bulky and heavy" - is it deserved vs. competing cameras?

The K-1 is among the heavier FF cameras, but more compact than most. Would I like a lighter camera? Sure. But not if it compromises ruggedness. Would I like an even more compact camera? Maybe, but good ergonomy is far more important. If I need small and light I have my little Ricoh GR, the perfectest companion to a K-1 :)

Not too different from here, then. The most "off season" proper snow I've seen is 12th of June.

So typically Norwegian; when you emigrate you don't settle until you find another place as inhospitable as home :D

Snake is good food, isn't it?

Besides, venomous doesn't necessarily mean poisonous. We don't make that distinction in Norwegian, for some reason :confused:

That's one of our favourite pasta dishes, too.




That's one of the reasons I don't take pictures of my food. The other is simply... No pictures, no calories!

I think most people understood "don't stop" :D

Next lesson: Don't go too fast on sand. When you lift off on a wave you will dive nose first into the next. This will very much remove any shred of forward momentum (<--see?) you had up to this point.

Said momentum is in part converted to sound waves ;)

I'm not a fan. I find they're neither too sharp on snow nor on dry roads. I suppose it's a bit like using a super-zoom rather than primes, and.... Ooops, wrong thread. Sorry :o

But then I haven't tried any in quite a number of years. They might be better now. Not that it matters. Rental cars always have suitable tyres for the season anyway :D

Oh, I'm no historian. At least around here I'd need a master's degree to call me that, and I'm 2 years short of an MA..

But I'm good at cutting corners :D

It sometimes also helps to be able to turn the drive wheels if you're stuck.

And when driving in deep sand - wahtever you do, don't stop. The same goes for deep snow, I suppose, but I've never actually driven in deep snow :confused:

In Ethiopia? They're sort of off-set by 6 hours. Midnight is at 6 o'clock and midday is at 6 o'clock. The same way as they used to in East Africa, too, at least along the coast. It makes sense when your days are consistently about 12 hours long - one 12 hour cycle for the daylight, and one for the night. But it can be rather confusing, even to Ethiopians.

"Optimized focus" for my old FA Ltds can't be a bad thing :)

Thanks for the heads-up, @FozzFoster!
