microphotography

Today on a whim I hooked a webcam up to one of my microscopes. I need to machine a permanent adapter but I think the results came out ok.


A penny

A #10-32 tpi screw (from crest to crest is 1/32" of an inch)

Anyway, we watched "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" tonight. Henry sat with mouth agape and took about 80% of the movie in. I'm turning him into a little movie buff, or scarring him for life. It was a good cathartic-surreal-neo-60's-comedy, and Bill Murray was excellent as always. Anjelica Huston is hot. I can tell I'm middle aged now because of that.

I know what I wanna see pics of, and it ain't pennies and screws. Haha, just kidding.

I'm concerned that you like all these movies that were panned by LA critics...don't you know you're not supposed to like them?

Just tell me you didn't like "Big FIsh"...please?

I haven't seen "Big Fish" because it looked like a "magical realism" movie and I generally hate that genre. Then again I was one of the only people on earth who liked "Monkeybone", so what do I know?

Peter, why was there a dried up blood smeared slide still in my microscope when I took it out of the box? I seem to remember you were the last to use it.

I'm not at liberty to say (re: blood semared slide) but let's just say that I was making the world safe for democracy.
