102 year old lens remount

Optical untech

c. 1908 lens mounted on EOS

 I have an upcoming photography project that needs a vintage look.    My friend, a Russian lens technician called me into his store  ... He has something for me.... He found in a box of random parts, hidden inside anther lens this gem. A circa 1908 ( possibly earlier) 35mm lens. Still functioning, mostly brass, and not nearly as much dust or fungus as one would think after sitting in a box for over a hundred years. This lens is a piece of motion picture history, and at this point rare beyond words. So i say to him, "Wow... what do you have in mind?" he smiles, and says, ( in the thickest russian accent you can imagine) " i can make this fit EF you know..."  
The story is richer than this excerpt showa; and there's pictures.

Arab Condoms

Interesting piece of history
on the invention of the condom.

Boned Jello

In 1872 the Arabs invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine .
In 1873 the British somewhat refined the idea by taking the intestine out of the goat first.

Follow Moonbattey links at your own risk.  If an Apache helicopter suddenly appeared, and machine gunned every person at this festival, not a single tear would be shed by any normal person.  To the contrary; prayers of thanks would fill the ether. Note that there are children walking these streets!

Eric Holder is a Criminal

Political Crimes
The DOJ spent the better part of a year trying to prevent Coates from testifying and even ordered him to ignore a subpoena. It’s now clear why the administration would try to stop Coates from telling his story, for his is a damning tale indeed.

Not only did the ex-ACLU attorney back up Adams’ claims that charges were dropped in the NBPP case for political (rather than legal) reasons, he outlined a disturbing pattern of behavior within Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice. Rather than representing an anomaly, Coates laid out a convincing case that the DOJ’s questionable behavior in the NBPP case is consistent with racially-motivated departmental policy.

Here's a thought that will pass through your mind more than once today, as it has every day for the past several years.

The answer is:
FOX NEWS is destroying America

Rolling Stone: What do you think of Fox News? Do you think it's a good institution for America and for democracy?

Teh WAS:
[Laughs] Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We've got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It's a point of view that I disagree with. It's a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country ... .

What - you didn't know Democrats are vindictive?

Congressional democrat's decision to delay voting on extending the Bush Tax cuts until after the election will almost certainly become the mechanism vindictive lame duck Democrats use to punish Americans for voting them out of office.
