  1. Echoes...the version from original Pompeii flick.
  2. Ever cut 3" aluminum billet with a carbide tipped table saw?
  3. Actually it's a federalist republic with democratically elected leaders.
  4. There are an estimated 80,000 corneal transplants yearly worldwide. From 191 million cases of Covid-19 4.1 million deaths have occurred. Do the math regardless of truth to the above posted. No politics simply numbers.
  5. Yes some do. If I ever feel like spending upwards of $4K on a lens I'll buy the 58mm Noct-Nikkor f1.2. It is a beauty and takes ethereal images on film. Not even the Leica Noctalux f1.2 can match it.
  6. 1.2 lenses are for one thing. Low light shooting w/o flash. I have a 50mm f1.4 Ais. Sharp with a touch of softness in the corners wide open that's gone by f4. Who looks at corners anyways? Here it is on my F5.
  7. Yep. A genuine sleeper and a zoom at that. Same set up different dog. Took this a little while ago. 1/60 @ f8 w/fill flash.
  8. Nikon D3100 using a Nikkor 50-135 f3.5 Ais manual focus zoom. Taken at 1/200 f3.5. Sharpened and added contrast to give it some bite because of his piercing stare. Man I miss that dog. It's the one standing up in this photo. These two are a great pair. The 25-50 f4 and 50-135 f3.5 cover almost anything you're likely to encounter.

    Bicycle Tires

    Late to the party but I outweigh you buy a bit. I run Schwalbe Marathons. Lose a lot of feel (90 PSI max) but have never flatted. I ride on and sorta off road. C&O canal path and Great Allegheny Passage for example.
  10. Why can't people take few minutes and tidy up before taking photos of for sale items? Not sure I'd buy from them no matter the cost.
  11. I heard Dire Straits "Money For Nothing" today and it said the other F word w/o censorship. I just listened again to be sure and sure 'nuff Mark said ****** several times. And to top it off I went and checked out Country Joe and The Fish's Fish cheer from Woodstock. yep they said it several times...in fact 3 or 4 hundred thousand people screamed it. So my experience is not like yours.
  12. Spotify works for me. Except in my WRX where it's sporadic.
  13. At this point in my life a couple hundred dollars would be welcomed.
  14. Why assume luck/karma is dispensed? It could be the shit you believe happens.
  15. I have a Modi 3+ too. Very happy with it.
  16. Good for him. I'd love to go along for a ride in that myself.
  17. Yes I'm fond of old Nikon MF glass. I have chipped a few to use on my F5 and digitals as well. My favorite pair is a 25-50 f4 and 50-135 f3.5. Just love the feel and build quality.

    Mcm 1900

    I could have used them last night with all the maroons setting off fireworks until 2 AM.
