It is very true that most Pixdaus users have no idea who Emmanuel Radnitzky (Man Ray) was, and it is also true that most Pixdaus users don't care. Man Ray achieved a certain manner of acclaim as an artist and a photographer. As far as I am concerned, however, he is best remembered by his own words: "I don't photograph nature".

Well, I have banged a bunch of men in my time. You know how Cleopatra thought she had exclusive dibs on Mark Anthony? She didn't. I shagged him once and 'twas a delightful experience, though far riskier than eating fried food. Akhenaten, on the other hand, couldn't bang his way out of a papyrus bag, though not for lack of trying. So as far as wisdom is concerned, I'd have to say: Quality over quantity. Thanks for asking.

Very interesting, Oh Ancient One. Have you in all your years accured any great wisdom you'd care to share with those of us who are so by so many years your juniors? The once-famous Two Thousand Year Old Man who used to give interviews to Carl Reiner was once asked to share the secret of his longevity and replied "Never, ever eat fried food!"

Not quite as old as you seem to think, dear Wondering. I was but a child when I made the acquaintance of Adam's cat. Adam, incidentally, preceded his cat by many years. His oxen, however, were not so fortunate. Something about a grave mistake in a garden, altars...I really cannot recall the finer details after all these millennia.

“I do not photograph nature. I photograph my visions.” Man Ray Let us learn from the greats.

If, MBD, you were actually aquainted with Adam's housecat, pray tell us how old you are, oh Ancient One :)

The expression actually is "Adam's off ox." An ox team consisted of a near ox and an off ox. The driver walked along next to the near ox ( on the left if you were standing behind the team looking forward). The near ox was usually more tractable and more well behaved or at least more predictable than the off ox. So it was sometimes said that someone didn't know thus and such or so and so from Adam's off ox.

I knew Adam's housecat, but who the hell was Adam's ox?

True. The typical Pixdaus user is an uneducated peasant who wouldn't know Man Ray from Adam's ox.

Man Ray was, of course, Emmanuel Radnitzky. I am certain Tin Type is aware of this, but most viewers probably are not.
