Default Crazy Thing About LPF

It makes you wanton. There is literally NO way to avoid it.

I've been reading about lasers for the past two days. Burners, pointers, greenies, dildas, Argons - the list goes on! I'm going to have to start a fund for this new hobby of mine. I'm eager to try my own build if I can get the cash together to do so.

Oh, you guyssss...

Default Re: Crazy Thing About LPF

I have been obsessed with lasers for over 30 years, there is NO known cure.

It's like the worse addiction known to man. always need another "Fix"

To make it worse, Lasers are everywhere these days, gas stations, supermarkets, hardware stores, pet stores, everywhere!

once upon a time they were only in Sci Fi films, now they are bombarding us from all angles...

Just try and kick the habit, I defy you.

I was fascinated with DL's line of handheld green lasers... then I found LPF and that changed everything.

photo is the prefix for light... intendere is the latin word for focus(ed) mania is the suffix for an exaggerated desire...


I can ask my med teacher how the prefix/root/suffix rules work..
There are certain vowel that need to be swapped out of the end or beggining root word sometimes.
I learned in my medical terminology class in 10th grade that this is how the names for technical terms and diseases are made =p

The problem is the phot(o)(i)ntend(ere)mania. The letters in parenthesis are supposed to be changed. The (ere) is only to serve the tense of the root word I think.
If I had to to guess though it would be something like.. photintendamania.
I'll get back to you guys, if anyone else knows about prefix/suffix rules feel free to jump in.

Thanks, I needed that.

All I can add is that I'd like my cardboard box in the middle of 100 acres of nothing but me and may lasers.

Oh and a laptop with wifi so I can post here.

Grizzly Adams with lasers, that would be cool.
