      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  2. Hoyt Jib Boom

    Nice sunbathing spot on foredeck of a charter boat, and you're going to swing a boom back and forth across it? Uh, no. Also, the boom will get in the way picking up moorings or anchoring...have to step over or duck under...that's almost every day on a charter boat. If a self-tacking jib is required, I'd opt for an athwartships track with a loose-footed headsail on a furler. Sheet can run partway up mast and back down to keep it clear of foredeck. Or use a 2:1 led to side to allow car to shift.

    Nashville PD just tweeted that the suspect was caught minutes ago. No details.
  5. North Korea agrees to denuclearization

    they've done so many underground tests the mountain is verging on collapsing. I suspect either 1) They're stalling for time until another test facility can be constructed, or 2) They've done enough live testing that they can now model the tests in computer. They've only put a testing halt on the negotiating table...they fully intend to retain nuclear weapons.
  6. North Korea agrees to denuclearization

    Briefed? What...was it written in crayon? Did F&F brief him over the air? Or was a note slipped into his scorecard at the 12th tee?
  7. North Korea agrees to denuclearization

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump on Sunday claimed North Korea has agreed to “denuclearization” before his potential meeting with Kim Jong Un. But that’s not the case. North Korea said Friday it would suspend nuclear tests and intercontinental ballistic missile launches ahead of summits with the U.S. and South Korea. Kim also said a nuclear test site would be closed and “dismantled” now that the country has learned how to make nuclear weapons and mount warheads on ballistic rockets. But the North has stopped short of saying it has any intention of abandoning its nuclear arsenal, with Kim making clear that nukes remain a “treasured sword.” Trump nonetheless tweeted Sunday that the North has “agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!” .............. https://apnews.com/ce30b13866be4a96a0632f0e3e5ea555 Last year was an exceptionally busy one for North Korea’s nuclear and missile specialists. In September, the country detonated a huge nuclear device that it said was a hydrogen bomb. This claim, experts said, was supported by the size of the blast, which caused a 6.3-magnitude earthquake in North Korea’s northeast, an area not known for natural seismic activity. Mount Mantap, the 7,200-foot-high peak under which North Korea has detonated all its nuclear bombs, visibly shifted during that last nuclear test, leading some analysts to wonder if it was suffering from “tired mountain syndrome” and was at risk of collapsing. If that were true, closing the site would be something North Korea would do anyway, although perhaps without announcing it at such a fortuitous time, if at all. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/north-korean-leader-suspends-nuclear-and-missile-tests-shuts-down-test-site/2018/04/20/71ff2eea-44e7-11e8-baaf-8b3c5a3da888_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.56b51de6a2d5
  8. Banning Gun Stores

    IMO, gun stores should be considered possibly part of the solution. Ban private P2P sales, so that all gun sales go through a gun dealer and are subject to background check and waiting period. Naturally the gun store is expected to charge for the service. This would only be a slight inconvenience to the majority of private gun buyers and sellers. It will make it more difficult for felons, mentally ill, and youths to obtain guns.
  9. North Korea agrees to denuclearization

    IIRC, NK is agreeing to stop nuclear testing, not to give up nuclear weapons.
  10. Just Another Restaurant Mass Murder By Gun

    The suspect had previously been arrested near the WH by the SS. His Illinois gun permit was revoked, and his guns (4) taken away and handed over to his father. The father gave him the guns back. I'm kind of thinking the father may be in some legal trouble. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/540394002

    If the NRA supporting gun owners aren't willing to be part of the solution, a solution will be reached without them. Public opinion is moving away from them....and digging in at an extreme position or claims that shooting victims are 'actors' etc, only serves as justification not to include them in the discussion.

    So, the cockroach is detained in the Hanoi Hilton until he coughs up airfare? And none of the enablers or Facebook fanclub will chip in? Don't they realize he's a famous world-record setting Kon-Tiki grifter?
  13. And every single one has exploded in NK. Their missiles don't work. If lil' Kim wants to nuclear bomb himself, why would we worry?

  15. What is a Libertarian?

    I read a story about the guys flying over the Hump in WW2. A wing on their DC-3 got shot up beyond patching. They took a wing off a DC-2 that was out of use, and put it on. The DC-2 1/2 flew just fine. edit: http://cnac.org/aircraft02.htm
