And it's really funny as can be, since grain-fed cattle taste far better than corn-fed cattle. Reminds me of the whole ethanol-for-fuel thing. Some genius (seriously) with an interest in the corn industry comes up with an idea, and the public suffers endlessly for it.

Corn is grain. Did you mean grass-fed cattle?

Advertising is societal corrosion. It eats away at our experiences, it reshapes our thoughts, it homogenizes and neuters our culture, and it's all because people such as yourself see "not making any money" as an inherent problem with all sorts of aspects of our lives.

No mod points to bestow, but I'd like to buy you a beer.

I toured Europe with a Lumix LX3 in 2010, taking 1700+ photos in two weeks. I traded up to the LX5 not long after that, and now I'm loving my LX7. Panasonic deserves kudos for identifying and catering to the market for a feature-rich compact digital camera. Do you have the add-on WA lens? Pricey but worth it.

I bought my GF a Canon A720IS before I knew better. It sits on a shelf now -- she's using the LX3.

A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing.
