      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.

  1. Shithole Countries

    I just love this thread - bringing light into grey winter days and making me laugh all over. Real life!
  2. Sailplane racing Chile FAI Grand Prix

    Well Rasputin22 you owe us the link to this final version - we surely will take note.
  3. How close can the sails be? (i.e. the "slot")

    I could give you some pics of best looking bloopers which are not flatter than most ... well ok, back to business ... here is one: Anyway, their thrust vector should point in the right direction, which I doubt at some pictures. Or they counteract the side force of the spinnaker, but in the end the induced drag needs to be overcome. This is what probably killed them - when boats sailed faster than the old lead mines permitted.
  4. what's wrong with this picture

    Oh and I forgot, the principle "raced the Chicago-to-Mackinac Island regatta twice, and dreams of sailing obscure parts of the world. She lives in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood with her labradoodle, Juni". This might be where the sailing olfection of the picture comes from.

    Beware Ed, they will surely add SA to their list: http://ballastgroup.com/media-results You will then find yourself between Sacramento Bee and Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Not too bad...
  6. How close can the sails be? (i.e. the "slot")

    Sometimes the slot is bigger on IMP
  7. Pogo Structures...are they closed for business?

    Thats the spirit! Keep going strong Chantier Naval Structures!!!
  8. I have done some crazy stuff... but

    There is the one sign which a give keeps me grinning from ear to ear Is there an equivalent to 4KSB for highways?
  9. there be pirates in the north sea

    Hi Boys, my now grown-up boy has one of those as well. We might be able to copy you. Just think about the two would meet somewhere in the ocean? Would they fight or join forces and head for the caribean? I wish you a jolly good times - learn sailing and cruise the oceans!
  10. Cleaning up MY act

    When reading this thead I am not sure if I had opened SA or some "corporate" intranet. Are you all getting pc-degenerated? BillDBastard very clearly stated that if such US/Aussie behaviour spreads around this will lead to a country-wide Darwin Award. I enjoy living in Europe (from 2019 onwards: "on the continent") both in private as is business situations. Have a good party tonight and try to reboot to natural behaviour tomorrow morning.

  12. My summertrip 2017: Singlehanded trip to Faeroer

    Hi SySunday, thx for the nice video. I watched all you did ... and will never forget the scene starting from 01:30 of your 2014 Shetland cruise. Keep going strong!
  13. Fuck Christmas

  14. Joke

    A Greek and a Scotsman were sitting in a Starbucks cafe discussing who had the superior culture. Over triple lattes the Greek guy says, "well we Greeks built the Parthenon" and arched his eyebrows. The Scotsman replies, "well ... it was the Scots that discovered the Summer and Winter Solstices." The Greek retorts, "we Greeks gave birth to advanced mathematics." The Scotsman, nodding in agreement says, "Scots were the ones who built the first timepieces and calendars." And so on until the Greek comes up with what he thinks will end the discussion. With a flourish of finality he says, "the Greeks were the ones who invented sex!" The Scotsman replies, "aye, that is true, but it was we Scots who introduced it to women!
  15. Being naughty in Lake Wobegon

    Body Cams? Or come to good old Europe.
