Continuous-strip photographic film

In 1885, commercial production began of George Eastman's flexible, paper-backed photographic film, the first continuous-strip negative able to be compactly spooled. The film consisted of a layer of paper and a coating of insoluble sensitized gelatin emulsion, separated by a layer of soluble gelatin to enable release of the film layer after developing. He incorporated the Eastman Dry-Plate and Film Co., Rochester, NY, on 1 Oct 1884, and was issued patent No. 306,594 for this invention on 14 Oct 1884. He began promoting its convenience benefits to photographers over the bulkier, heavier and fragile glass plates then in use. Eastman designed the machinery for its manufacture, and a roll holder to use instead of glass plates.«[Image: Detail from an 1887 advertisement showing Eastman's negative paper on a roll and its package.]

Undercover Clergy

A minister, a priest and a rabbi went for a hike one day. It was very hot. They were sweating and exhausted when they came upon a small lake. Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped in the water.
Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while enjoying their "freedom." As they were crossing an open area, who should come along but a group of ladies from town. Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the priest covered their privates and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for cover.After the ladies had left and the men got their clothes back on, the minister and the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates. The rabbi replied, "I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it's my face they would recognize."
