Canon 7D vs 5D mkII

I recently bought a Canon 7D (see other post) and today I spurred for the 5D mkII. Full-frame is so much sweeter and wide, and I can put the 24-70mm f/2.8L USM to proper work. It's too narrow on cropped on the 7D because the APS-C CMOS sensor.

Here's my advice: If you shoot action, get the 7D. It's insanely great value.

However, if you shoot portraits, low light, or mostly landscape, GET THE 5Dmkii! It is AMAZING! :)

San Diego McChicken!

San Diego McDonalds have brought back the McRib to the menu, and we also have two extra "limited time" McChickens.

The new flavors are Jalapeño Cheddar and Cheddar Onion. I tried them both today, and I have to say that the Jalapeño Cheddar was actually spicy and had a kick to it. I'm not a fan of the Cheddar on the Cheddar Onion, but it was something special and unique from the usual boring McChicken.

 If you're in the San Diego area, text ‘SPICY’ to 44144 to receive a coupon for one free Jalapeño Cheddar or Cheddar Onion McChicken with any purchase sent directly to their mobile phone*. To redeem the coupon, customers simply show the text message coupon on their phone to a McDonald’s attendant at the cash register or in the drive thru.

Go check it out!

Med School

Why am I upset? Isn't this blog about the happy things in life, like photography, automobiles, and humour?

All laughter eventually comes to end; for me, it is the thought of the intense competition of med school.

Do you know what it's like to apply for med school? Let me enlighten you. While the minimum GPA is often only 2.5 or 3.0, the average of acceptance is near 4.0 or higher. That means if you don't have a 3.5 GPA, don't even bother applying.

What about the applicants? How many people are applying? Often over 15,000 applicants.

And interviews... how many interviews? possibly 300.

And acceptances? Seats available? Only 60.


That's basically a 0.4% acceptance rate.

Now think of all those damn Indians who do nothing but study. They score perfect on everything because they know everything. They do NOTHING BUT STUDY. Do they eat? No. They're Ghandi. Do they drink? Possibly while reviewing flashcards. Do they sleep? No. THEY STUDY!

100% on all exams and midterms, and perfect record. How am I ever going to compete against these people?

Sad sad day, indeed.

I took this photo at the MIRAMAR AIR SHOW 2010. Pretty awesome display of power and pollution; diesel is awesome when poorly combusted. Heavy, thick, and blanketing smoke. Sweeeeet.


This one was at the same place, but of a falling biplane.
