    Invite some friends around and go for the '100 challenge' - this involves filling 100 empty film canisters with beer and drinking 1 every minute for 100 minutes. Sounds easy but I don't think it is!!

    Very popular with binge-drinking British students (I believe - never tried it myself!)

    erm... you're talking about the metal film canisters (used for bulk rolling film) or the plastic containers that the regulkar film rolls comes in?

    if you have the all-white ones (including the cap) for the plastic containers, i don't mind relieving them off you...

    Never say properly.

    Send for recycling then. Or those who need it for bulk loading.

    Thank you so much Uncle Larry. Must test it first before mass production.
