Pierre spends a lot more time on Usenet than I do — I used to go rafting there, but when the spam got ridiculous I paddled to shore and rarely go back in more than ankle deep.
Since we both got digital cameras last week, Pierre has been keeping up with the e-Joneses in their newsgroups. Today he sends along this gem from rec.photo.digital.
A wag by the handle of Cynicor posts,
After we got some snow here earlier this week, I realized that my eyes have slightly different white balance. My left eye tends to see things with a slightly yellowish cast compared with my right eye, which tends to be a bit bluer. Have others noticed slight differences like this, or do I have a serious medical condition that requires immediate assistance? (I haven’t been able to find my manual white balance menu setting yet.)
A concerned reader wonders if it might be a cataract problem, and Cynicor zips back:
God, I hope not. I’m not even 40. Although I did look at a lot of loud rock music in my youth.
Zing! Post of the day.
I am so impressed that you guys remembered me. Makes me feel…loved. (sigh)
Well, hey - that was funny. It was months ago and I *still* think it’s funny. And if I remember right your smiley emoticon was .) for the one-eye business. Cracked me up.
Well, I linked you back on my newly restarted blog. Five more and your Google PageRank will be in the stratosphere!
