    65. i haven't emoed under a cold shower for a while, losing is a good excuse mmm
    66. so that i can run around in the rain singing "raindrops are falling on my headddddddd"
    67. it's a good way to release some angst about my life, and carry out some politicking and arguing on the internet whee
    68. because we have drifted away from the nature of past competitions and alien shooters from other worlds are laughing at us, but i can do nothing to tell the competition to keep the pride of last competitions, since we are labelled as 'bruised ego' straight way, so next year i will monkey see monkey do and get ready a studio and an alien.
    69. because we have drifted away from the nature of past wool shaving competitions and sheep from the other side of the mountain are laughing at us, but i can do nothing to tell the sheep to keep the pride of their ancestors, since we are labelled as "purple sheep" straight away, so next year i will sheep see sheep do and get ready a studio and a lot of wool
    70. baa baa black sheep have you any wool, yes sir yes sir 3 bags full
    71. Cos my "iBowl" phone camera phone not sharp enough and AF too lousy
    72. cos the t-shirt provided by organiser cramped my style
    73. because we have drifted away from the nature of past competitions and "uncle" shooters from other "world" are laughing at us, but i can do nothing to tell the competition to keep the pride of last competitions, since we are labelled as 'bruised ego' straight way, so next year i will monkey see monkey do and get ready a studio and an "uncle".
    74. because we have drifted into the side of the road and crashed our car.. did i mention this was an initial d competition?
    75. because we have drifted away from the nature of past competitions, next year i will bring a microwave oven and sit down and cook maggi mee
    76. i am the perfect shooter, and i make perfect shots, but the perfect camera has not come along yet, so i never shoot anything
    77. i brought my dslr, i brought my lenses, i brought my battery, filters, heavy tripod, 20 studio strobes.. but i forgot my compactflash card alamakkkk
    78. What marathon?
    79. Because a sore loser stands beside me & I didn't dare to win.
    80. because bad photos stand out better and attract more attention than good photos.
    81. Because I'm so damned good I don't need no steenking competition.
    82. Because my camera is bogged down with excessive weight from all the additional accessories attached to it and not forgetting the super-dupa BIG lens.
    83. Because i shot with Lens Baby and got disqualified for not using conventional lenses...
    84. Because i shot with another camera brand other than the branch which is sponsoring the competition...
    85. Because I didn't buy the latest 14-24 f2.8 lens
    86. Why must it be 1001?? Why can't it be 101??
    87. The more the merrier... the Canon T shirt not drying enough... made me sticky all over.
    88. Why must it be 1 up from 100 or 1000 or even 10000? why can't it be any arbitrary number?
    89. I photograph birds but judges only want photos of chio bu...wrong subjects
    90. Because I was tired.
