I had to ask myself that question this morning. I was sitting at my desk and the guy beside me showed me an ad for something called a selfie stick iphone. He was talking about getting it as a gag gift for his brother in law. Apparently he is both an Apple fan boy and one of those people who are constantly taking selfies and then emailing them to hundreds of people. I know a couple of these sorts of people and it really makes me wonder if they really think that they are that interesting. When I sit down to a plate of ham and eggs at Denny's I never think that I should take a picture of myself and my food and then email it to all of the people in my address book. In fact I pretty much figure that way I had for breakfast is my own business and not a concern to most other people.
Still I wonder what this thing is like if you had it in your hand. I do not think that you could figure it out from looking at the ad. It might depend a lot on how self conscious you were. For instance some people might be way too concerned about looking cool to ever use something like this, because the sense I get is that a lot of people are going to want to laugh at you if they see you holding this thing. If you did not care about that, then the only thing that would matter is whether or not it worked. Of course there are a number of people who would just love it if people looked t them and laughed because of this gadget. They love attention so much that they would not care if they were laughed at.

Domke F-3X review + loaded photos
Image by bgolub
The Domke F-3X is my new favorite bag. Thanks Megen for the birthday present!
Some but not much. This isn't a bag for transporting your gear long distances (although I've taken it all around the world and never had any issues). It's a bag for shooting from. The bottom is padded but the sides are just canvas. In the top left photo you can see the one insert the bag comes with; it attaches to velcro on the 2 sewn in pieces of canvas that make the side compartments. The canvas actually does a good job to protect the camera. Better than I thought it would. I cannot feel the lenses or camera bounce against me as I carry the bag.
This is a very easy to use, comfortable bag. The canvas material wears well and the whole bag molds to your hip. It looks much smaller than my Crumpler 6 million dollar home but holds more. The strap has rubber woven in to provide a nice grip that won't move around. Loaded with 3 lenses and an FX body it got a bit heavy but I rarely take my 70-300mm with me. With just the D700, 16-35mm, and 50mm it feels perfect.
It still looks like a camera bag to me; but less so than a Lowepro or even a Crumpler do. I like the green color but you can also get it in a traditional black. It molds to your hip so it looks smaller than what it's capable of holding.
The side pockets would be great for holding a flash. I use one to hold a rocket blower at the moment. The canvas pieces in the main compartment aren't sewn to the bottom so they can collapse like in the lower left photo. My only wish is that the velcro came with a "muter" that some newer bags often have and that they used a plastic clip instead of a clumsy metal one that is difficult to use with one hand.
Update: This bag made it through MOMA without a docent asking me to leave it at the coat check. The Crumpler 6 million dollar home, also a great bag, always needed be to checked.

70s Nikons: Nikomat with 50mm f/1.4 lens
Image by Chris Devers
These cameras belonged to my parents before I was born, when my dad was stationed in the army in Germany. There, they bought the Nikkormat (all manual) and the slightly newer Nikomat (auto-shutter, manual aperture). By the time I was given the cameras to learn on in the late 90s, they were around 35 years old.
* * * * * * * * * *
Really, this is all the controls any camera ever needs. Right? Right.
If you want to make some or all of this automatic, fine, but at least make the fundamental controls -- shutter release, aperture (f/stop), exposure time (in 1/n second notation), and ISO sensitivity -- super prominent and easy to manipulate.
The D50 doesn't really get this right, but then most of the cameras I've played with don't either. It's not too bad to hold for one of these settings -- set the dial to "M" (full-manual), "A" (lock aperture), "S" (lock shutter speed), or "P" (err, I've never fully grasped this one, seems to let you manipulate the focus locking I think), then spin a dial to select the aperture or shutter you want.
But I find the D50's full manual mode too fiddly to bother with, so I never use it. And the canned program modes -- "portrait", "landscape", "kids", "sports", "plants/macro" -- seem too gimmicky. If you know what adjusting the fundamental controls will do, and really it's not that complicated, then it's easy enough to do it manually, provided that the controls are easy to manipulate.
I guess that's what I miss: the tactile feedback of these controls. Rather than having to look at an LED panel on top while spinning a thumbwheel, you can keep your eye through the viewfinder while adjusting rings right on the lens barrel to access the controls. On this one, the only viewfinder feedback you'd get would be a simple "over/under exposed" level on the side, along with a focus ring in the middle; with the Nikkormat it would display the aperture (and I think exposure time) as well, which is even better.
Short version: mechanical rings good, software controls & too many options bad.
All that said, I can't see ever shooting film again, so as nice as these were, I think they have a permanent place gathering dust in the closet now. Poor things.

Take care of wooden cutting boards properly. Wood is prone to warp or split when used as a cutting board. Food juices, plus the washing and drying process, will cause this damage. Never immerse the board in water, rather, sponge it off with warm, soapy water. You can find oil designed for cutting boards to maintain yours. Be sure to dry it off completely before using. When you are cooking for someone for the first time, always stick with a recipe that you are comfortable with. This will allow you to impress your boss or significant other. Please them by cooking a recipe you are familiar with, and can cook very well. Add winter greens for hearty cold weather meals. After a first frost, these veggies have a very sweet yummy taste. Select crisp green vegetables with a deep green color, and pass by those that are yellowing and limp looking.

General Admission - Standing Room * Limited Seating Available First Come, First Served * Full Dinner Menu Available * Minimum Per Person, For All Tables * All Ages Once upon a time there were great funk and R&B bands like Earth, Wind & Fire, The Meters, War, Kool & The Gang, Slave, and numerous others who constantly broke down musical barriers. The musicality of these units was superior - they could rock or funk out as easily as they could move the crowd with a soulful tenor ballad. In the '90s, a dynamic young new band emerged to continue this tradition: Mint Condition, now the greatest self-contained R&B band of our time. Mint Condition does it all - delivering hard-bitten funk with a hip-hop edge, rocking out with screaming lead guitar, and crooning lush, "baby-making" soul ballads.

Leasure bares all to demonstrate the life transformation that God orchestrated
Watauga, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2014 In her new book, Coincidental?

An Irish up and coming writer Geri Schear has created a brand new Sherlock Holmes book based on a format of the investigators diary entries.
(PRWEB UK) 24 October 2014 All novels begin when the author asks themselves a What if? question. In the case of A Biased Judgement published this week, for Geri Schear that question was what if Sherlock Holmes had really lived? What role would a man of his talents have played in the events of a turbulent and transformative late 19th century? Schears novel tries to answer a host of other questions about Holmes. How did the events at the Reichenbach Falls and his subsequent disappearance impact Holmes? What effect did they have upon his relationship with Watson? How did Holmes adjust to the improvements in the police force and to being viewed by policemen as an elder statesman? What was the impact of an increasingly modernised world upon his process?
In order to address these questions, Schear decided telling the Keep On Analyzing
