    The neighborhood where my parents live is under constant attack by irate turkeys. Once when I went over there I was surrounded by a turkey gang. They tried to peck me when I got out of my car.

    I've also encountered turkey hitchhikers on the interstate.

    Worst horror film of the '80s. They didn't even use turkeys, just geese with fake feathers and tails glued to them.

    We celebrated May the Fourth Be With You a day early. Ian, Aaron and I spent the afternoon watching all the episodes of Star Wars Rebels back to back, in costume. Aaron is our nefarious Stormtrooper. Ian is the Master of Evil, Darth Vader.

    Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?

    As a little boy I played Han or Luke, but there was always a part of me that preferred to be Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper.

    Indeed.

    And their toys and costumes are so much cooler than the Star Wars stuff our generation had to play with that I'm almost, ALMOST, jealous.

    May I ask what camera and lens you are using for these?

    When I was a little kid in the late '70s and early '80s our Star Wars costumes and toys were never that screen-accurate, I can tell you that! :)

    ^^ Cute puppy!!!

    I was about to post almost the exact same response.

    The Force is strong in this family. :techman:

    @DataHolmes I use a Canon 70D, usually with an 18-135mm lens. My first camera was from Canon's Rebel series (T2i), which served me very well as an introductory camera (I think they're up to the T6i now). But I wanted something a bit sturdier and more versatile, so I upgraded to the 70D which has been fabulous, given the tens-of-thousands of shots I've taken with it in 18 months. The lens (which I also used with the T2i) is a great walkabout lens, giving me the chance to get some great wide-angle shots, and enough zoom to get me close enough to just about anything I need in the city (though, it's insufficient for wildlife and sports-action shots).

    Warning: Epic Douchiness Ahead

    My birthday was a couple weeks ago, and some of my friends had this tank top made for me, which I just think is hilarious.
