    Digital Camera "Shutter" sound effects

    Digital SLR's are not totally silent- they still have a shutter , and mirror to move. I often find those with video cams have tripods legs occupying the end of he platform , totally un-neccessary for a little palm cam or even a digital stills camera with (poor) video capability.

    Dealing with Scum - Dutch Style

    So when the Police issue a description of a wanted person as 'White, Male', they are being racist . This isn't America in the 50's and 60's and has no relevance to use of these terms in the UK today. There are many differences between the meanings of words in 'American' and this country.

    'black' is not a 'race' , so the statement " Then your dutch and german friends are racist" , is just a misguided troublemaker stirring the ****. Neither is 'Ethinic' a racist term.
