I feel hurt because I didn't get added to the drama queen chronic complainer list.  

 

You are actually on it, just way down the list. There are a few ahead of you, but you still have time to raise your ranking, you just have to say stuff like the NRs gave you seizures when you stared at it at a 45 degree angle for 2 hours or the ridges are 1/132 " too thick to take just the perfect scan.

:foryou: Hopefully you feel better now.

People need to realize that what isn't important to them may be very important to others. Let's say that John considers NRs to be a 2 (on a scale from 1 to 10 on what's important), but Steve considers them to be a 9. Does that mean Steve should be ridiculed by John?

 

Kind of in the same ballpark as "What I collect is great & what you collect sucks."

That's what I'm saying, don't ridicule me for collecting books that have NRs and what I collect doesn't suck, thanks Gaard for standing up for me.:headbang:

Newton_ring.thumb.jpg.9dbc07bbc1de76d34a3f3e861ad47a94.jpg

Just more data...from latest I have received 

Grade date:

3/9/18 Newton rings

8/29/18 Newton rings

8/29/18 Newton rings

8/29/18 Newton rings

9/7/18 Newton rings

9/25/18 Newton rings

10/4/18 Newton rings

10/16/18 Newton rings

All the above also make brittle crackling noises when I apply slight bend side to side pressure on the case. 

11/1/2018 no rings and no cracking noise when I apply slight bend pressure

Everything above is 6 3/4" inner well width lower slot size. Maybe they are working through defective stock and finally have gone through it.

I have received other comics with a different inner well width lower slot size of 7" through above dates and earlier with no newton rings.

Everyone needs to focus on determining if you have newton rings blindfolded. You can feel the newton rings by gently applying slight flexing pressure on the case and listening for brittle crackling. I find this fascinating I can detect them without looking.

If you can determine there are newton rings present blindfolded are you actually using the force? hm

As this saga evolves, we watch with baited breath ...and posts... as Frodo works tirelessly against temptation to embrace the Rings influence while slowly progressing toward Mount Doom.  :popcorn:

For those interested, I fixed a couple of broken PB image links early in this thread adding comments about scanning issues I've had with the most recent holder design.  I now return you to regular programming.  :wink:

Maybe that's because my issues are nicer to look at.  :baiting:

In this shark-tank, you could be right, chum.  ;)

Alas, 'twas only sarcasm.  IOW, an intentional malaprop serving as a double entendre, ergo "baited breath ... and posts" as the phrase continued. 

Here's a jolly seasonal one, ideally suited to this thread: Will CGC holders still be ringing in the New Year? (:
