‘DPReview’ First Impressions Of The Sony a65000 Now Available — And It Isn’t All Positive & Gaga!

by Anura Guruge


Click to access DPReview ‘First Impressions’ review.

If you are somewhat familiar with the specs and layout of the Sony a6500 (which is essentially not that different to the Sony a63000 or a6000 (for that matter)) just skip the initial sections and go straight to the ‘end’ (i.e., Section 5).

The comments about the touchscreen are upsetting. I, even today, punch the Fn menu on the a6000 hoping that it will react! This will be a problem since I got so used to it on my ill-fated Samsung NX500.

Think – Today: How Long After The ‘Big Bang’ Did Light Come To Be?

by Anura Guruge


lightPrior to the ‘Big Bang’ there was nothing. No dimensions, no space, no time, no light. Then the ‘Big Bang’ occurred. Light came to be after that. The question to ponder is how long did it take before there was light.

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Guinness Book Of Records” — YES, the ‘Guinness Book Of Records’ has appeared in the ‘Guinness Book Of Records’ as the best-selling copyrighted book of all time! [The Bible is not copyrighted.]

Pigs Are Likely To Fly Before Pope Francis Demotes Any Cardinals For Disobedience.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access “Crux” article on the cardinals. I added the FLYING PIG!

Oh, yes, he has the right and power to do so.

But, doing it is a whole different matter.

This is the Pope that let reprobate Keith Michael Patrick O’Brien of Scotland still retain is ‘Cardinal’ designation even after he admitted to serious sexual misconduct.

The last time a cardinal ‘resigned’ (i.e., the euphemism for parting of the ways) and ceased to be a cardinal was in 1927. You read that correct: 1927.

The uproar if Francis demotes these four dissenting cardinals would be unprecedented. They have not committed any crimes or covered up any crimes like so many other cardinals. All they have done is politely question the pope.

I think Pope Francis understands that if he disciplines these cardinals his legacy, already short on any meaningful achievements, would be tarnished irrevocably.

This is a joke.
