I've a friend who, years ago, was able to work his way up to the podium
where then NYC Titan Nelson D. Rockerfeller was speaking. He was burning up
film with his M3 when, in mid sentence, Mr. Rockerfeller looked at him and
with all the power of the PA system told him, "Son, your lens cap is on." 

I love that story.
