Wow. Based on my calculations, that's 1,591 mm per minute.

How would someone figure that out? I would guess that there are little drug stores all over the U.S. that still develop film, unless maybe Kodachrome film always got sent to some sort of Kodak specialist.

I think my mother still uses a film camera.

Well, that is a tad slower than a ZSU-23-4's rate of firing 4000 23-mm rounds a minute (1000 rounds per barrel), but considering they weren't firing the Hotchkiss at Sioux aircraft, it's probably fast enough.

My understanding from the entry is that the last processing shop in the US to which such film was sent stop doing that work.

It appears to be legit -- this is from an NPR story on the matter.

Quote:
The film, known for its rich saturation and archival durability of its slides, was discontinued last year to the dismay of photographers worldwide. But Kodak gave the last roll ever produced to McCurry. He has just processed that coveted roll at Dwayne's Photo Service in Parsons, Kan. — the last remaining location that processes the once-popular slide film.
Quote:
And he's got a piece of advice for amateur photographers with unused Kodachrome film lying around: Get it to Dwayne's! The Kansas photo shop will stop processing Kodachrome rolls on Dec. 30.

I think he retired it because after a year of cherry picking the most interesting things that happened on each day, there's not much new to add.

That's basically right. I keep considering spin off threads, focusing on some particular topic or series of events. Eventually I will likely do one.

Have you considered my suggestion of doing a "this day in the future" thread? That one would get all sorts of readership.
