Digital Cameras

Remember the days before digital cameras?....not too long ago, eh?....ahhh...modern technology...it seems that every single day we hear of another new modern time-saver, the latest gadget for our pleasure....why, just yesterday, I was over at The Smoking Toaster...where I read about Bitterman's new wireless experience...of course, the fact that he was graphically describing his "situation" while he was using his new wireless device was a bit disturbing...it was a good story anyway...which, brings me in a round about way to my point about digital cameras...

Back in the days before digital cameras and the internet....I think we were a very repressed people...I heard someone say once, that the Internet had "set us free"...well, they were right...."set us free" from just what, I don't know...but it sure sounds good....as a matter of fact, the only thing that immediately leaps to mind is that the invention of the digital camera has allowed us to take photographs that we normally wouldn't have DARED to take....I mean...we've ALL waited at the photo counter in Wal-Mart and waited for some attendant to hand us our little pile of freshly developed holiday snaps....but.....with a DIGITAL camera, you don't have to WORRY about little Johnny at Wal-Mart seeing your "15th Anniversary Photos"...you know the ones....the ones of that trip you two took to Bermuda?....and that night, after too many Zombies? On the beach? Right there under the stars?....No one around except you, your Darling Wife...and your new digital camera that your 14 year old son bought for the occasion?....Ladies and Gentlemen....THAT is a recipe for disaster....

Here is the deal....ok.....Dad is gonna get home...download those onto his PC....you can see where this is headed, right?.....Momma is in the kitchen cooking dinner for the 14 year old......and Daddy is alone....in a room...with a computer filled with amateur porn of him and his wife on a beach in Bermuda...doing things that only a bad 70's soundtrack should accompany....and he's got an internet connection to the world....

Well....I'll just leave the rest up to your imagination....I'm sure you get the...uh...picture, right?....so, in conclusion...what exactly has the invention of the Internet and Digital Cameras freed us from?....I don't know....I really and truly don't......but it sure as HELL makes the Internet an interesting place.....and don't EVEN get me started on webcams...DAMN!
