Scientists at the National Rumor Service (NRS) have noticed a sudden increase in optimism among Pentaxicans in recent days and are issuing a warning to all Pentaxicans to keep their hopes in check.
“Utilizing our advanced Kepler 2000 Rumor Warning System, we noticed an anomaly in the Pentaxica region. After enhancing the image, we’ve identified the source of this optimism–the upcoming CP+2015 photography show mid-February in Yokohama, Japan. Our data suggests that long-suffering Pentaxicans are pinning their hopes on the announcement of a full-frame Pentax K-mount at the show and this is causing the increase in optimism.”
While optimism itself is not harmful, scientist from the NRS warn that such high levels of optimism can lead to UE (Unrealistic Expectations). Along with ED, UE is the leading cause of agita among men over a certain age.
As a precautionary measure, mental health professionals are being dispatched to Pentax enthusiast websites (both of them) in the days leading up to the CP+2015 and will remain there for several weeks to help members deal with the inevitable disappointment. “It’s odd…they should be used to disappointment by now.” noted a NRS scientist.
