I once had a funny argument with a friend who was excited that he
could set his digital still camera to take "widescreen" pictures. It
turned out that those pictures had thick black bands on the top and
bottom, so I said, you're not getting more picture, you're just
cutting off the top and bottom and getting less picture. But he
insisted: "No I'm getting more picture on the left and on the right."
We each thought the other was blind to reason...
