    Ehh, I don’t really believe that university exists, unless I’m there…(flew there once to see an opera.)

    Kudos for the Bishop Berkley joke (though I'm definitely of the Dr Johnson persuasion and refute a lot of things thus.)

    My degree isn't from either Stanford or Cal, but from the University of Hard Knocks. My wife is a Cal grad. The other day, near the UCB Campus, I ran into a CalTech grad and told him about that young blonde CalTech grad who was arrested for forest and residential arson up around Mt Shasta a week or so prior. One expects a certain amount of mandatory mental illness just to into CalTech. Stanford you need parents with a lot of money, and Berserkly (the phonetic spelling), well, now it's more a Techie experience than anything requiring riot gear. They're now mostly into getting good career positions fast rather than political causes. I fit in with none of the above - identify more with coyotes in fact - just as my name implies - do what I gotta do to survive. Now back to the darkroom, or maybe chasing a roadrunner first.

    Don't feel bad Drew for not going to college. I went to Georgia State University in downtown Atlanta, which accepts just about anybody that can write the check for tuition. Got a degree in Decision Sciences and have been making good and bad decisions ever since, no correlation or covariance analysis needed.

    CreationBear - you are far more read than I so I had to look up Bishop Berkeley. He must have been a photographer ahead of his time. "In 1709, Berkeley published his superabundant first major work, An Essay Towards a New Theory of Vision, in which he discussed the limitations of human vision and advanced the theory that the proper objects of sight are not material objects, but light and colour." -- wikipedia

    Ha, of course Descartes' theory of vision is basically contact printing on your pineal gland...
