    Movie Review: Black Swan

    Sorry, didn't think much to it at all. Left after about an hour. Got bored with trying to work out what was really going on, and it looked like it was going to stray onto topics that I really don't care to see. To think it was billed as a psychological thriller - wasn't very thrilling

    Russia last year

    In a word - work. Was doing a training tour for MTS - Russian mobile operator. I know what you mean about the church top - it's all there in the earlier shots in the series, then I started making sure I got the plane in the right place and... hey ho! And yes - it was cold - Siberian winters...

    Need Your Help! What should i do? Legit Or Not!

    Quite right. You only need to inform the authorities that you have it and the details of it. You don't need to hand it over until they ask for it.

    Need Your Help! What should i do? Legit Or Not!

    Just to add a further thought, and I know the US market is different, but local research over the last day or so has turned up...... there are a number of perfectly legit secondhand camera shops here in KL, where I could find you any number of secondhand Nikon D300's for a list price of RM5000...

    On this day...

    Absobloodylutely. One of those days you never forget. I was in a business meeting with two Israelis, when my sec came in and said that a plane had hit the WTC - we all thought a Cessna, or something like that - then she brought in a print from the web. Then another from the second tower. I...
