    Just returned from a remote region with no communications and in reading the article I did laugh at some points. It does have me thinking though about where I might have stored my scarves.

    Haha, it got me thinking a little too. Maybe I can get cocky when shooting and I'm not even knowing it. Oh well.

    Sorry, no time to read this now, have to iron my flak jacket for my upcoming backpacking trip to a remote village where they have never seen fire.

    Okay, I'm guilty as charged. I got nailed on three: #9, #14 and #18.

    #9 snags a few people here on the forum.....:biggrin-93:
    #9. Having your bio picture where you are posing with your camera in action shot or non-action, still cocky.

    I use to take selfies with me posing with my camera but I don't do that anymore. I suppose it's just a phase but I don't hold it against anyone who wants one for a profile picture. I understand it and in my opinion doesn't make them cocky. Unless it's a $40k Hassleblad, then they're just showing off. "Hey look at me, I have a Hassleblad, I'm better than you!". - Not saying Hassleblad shooters are saying that.

    Please never get interrogated by the police. They love the ones that confess to things they haven't been asked about. It makes the months statistics for case clearance look really good. :lol:

    Whatever. I'm not going to bother you ever again. I know you don't like me and that's fine. I know I'm not as smart as you but you don't have to make other people feel stupid. You are basically the definition of a troll. I'm tired of the crap from you.

    I'm just waiting for Derrel to either drop in and comment on this one or change his long standing Avitar. :biggrin-new: I found the whole article to be quite funny.
