You already have and I thought it was extremely original.And I am impressed that you thought to return to this thread after almost three years with new thoughts. In a world dominated by 140 character drive-bys, I find that somehow reassuring.I think you might be looking at it the wrong way. Everyone (not necessarily you) seems to want intellectual achievement handed to them. If there isn't a "for Dummies" book on it, they aren't interested. That seems, to me, exactly...
He just does not get the concept of a dress code creating a sense of community. The idea that everything in life simply must serve as a vehicle for you to engage in self-expression is incredibly pernicious.
I have a friend who got mugged and ended up in an argument with the guy. The mugger demanded his smartphone and his wallet. My friend got pissed off and told the guy that he didn't mind handing over his cash but the guy was just being a dick (his words) demanding his phone and his credit cards because his phone would be bricked and his credit cards would be cancelled within minutes. He insisted that handing them over would just be a massive PITA for him and and wouldn't...
I think you might be going down the rabbit hole a bit with this. You say most people are just using a loupe, so any microscope you can plug into your computer and take pictures with is massively better.This is really just for fun and is a classic case where you get pretty much the cheapest thing you can and play around with it. You don't climb the learning curve with a $1000 piece of equipment when a $50 piece will do. It's entirely likely that you'll discover that the $50...

That sort of reminds me. Is anyone at all familiar with this place? It's Damon Baehrel's restaurant upstate.http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/08/29/damon-baehrel-the-most-exclusive-restaurant-in-americaBONUS: Manton is featured in the New Yorker cartoon about half-way down!
Wow. You learn about something new every day. This is actually kind of interesting, in an OCD kind of way. I am strangely intrigued.http://daizen.com/hand-plane-competition-kezuroukai-usa/
I do not get the Shake Shack love, especially on a place as particular as SF. It's like if everyone agreed the best ties were from Brooks Bros. Yeah, they're sort of OK, but if you want to be obsessive enough, you can do much better. Why not at least JG Melon? Or Salvation Burger, which I haven't been to but have heard a lot about?
Gps not working?
• greasy pizzaNo, but we did do hamburgers, IIRC.• no dancing in barsOh, please. This is SF.• ratsYes, lots. Lefty has turned them into a hobby.• manhattan = giant business park/food courtThere was some complaining about food trucks. No one complains about Manhattan. Almost everyone except for Manton and Lefty are hipsters and live in Brooklyn. Manton lives in Connecticut or someplace like that and Lefty is so happy not to be in SanFo that he hardly complains at all...
