    Wouldn't it be funny if there really were cameras all over the place?

    I would assume the same thing, hence the "Dark Room"s. It's supposed to be a photo studio.

    I assumed that F/Stop refferred to the aperture setting in a camera.

    I thought it was because A- through E- Spot were already taken.

    Very few people know this, but there's an elevator that goes from the 6th Ave. IND right into the facility.

    Everything is photographed with fast film and a wide open f/stop?

    It stands for Fusilli. The guy who thought up the name is a big pasta fan and loved the Seinfeld episode where Kramer made a Fusilli Jerry.

    Sorry if this ends up being a dumb question, but...

    Just curious as to the origin of F/Stop's name...does F stand for anything in particular?

    Thanks all...
