      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. Anti-Ballistic Missile Anarchy

    Sometimes some phones have settings to receive emails text messages. Might be a carrier setting, if memory serves mine are controlled from the carriers website. Same place as Amber alert settings.
  2. Why the tie?

    I don't like wearties or tight clothing around my neck in general. Sometimes it is required though. I liked the trend in the 90's that did away with ties completely to bad it didn't catch on. Now afays you don't need a tie for most jobs, though Hutton down shirts and slacks do get more temporary respect than without
  3. Were all you're high school friends jackholes?

    Actually the whole concept is fading away. High school for gernation x and millenials is not the start of being an adult but the start of another 2-6 years of school before you are qualified for flipping burgers. So the younger generations have fond memories of high school but their really fun times don't start until college and so high school reunions are dropping off each year. For me my 20 year reunion took place at the same time as my sister's 25 and my father's 50th. It was the same party. It was the only way to get enough people together. I almost wanted to go just to have family trip. But I never got along with my class mates anyways.
  4. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

    I a man not sure what I find more offensive. That someone thought that was offensive, or that someone was offended by someone else being offended by that. So so the question I have to ask who is the bigger wimp? The person who thought it was offensive or the person who took offense to the offended person? my personal opinion is we both people as well as all the walked on moon skeptics to the moon and not give them a space suit. Lets see them be offended with no air.
  5. New York State Anarchy

    Having lived in Rochester for 15 years it is a great city. Bieng a sailor or at least enjoyer of water take a walk out charlotte pier. This time of the year it is beautiful. Also get a map and drive around the finger lakes. The rolling hills and water with leaf changes is pretty though it is a tad early. Wine tours are good. a garbage plate is good but more for young adults. Dinosaur is great. However pick a restrauant I never found a horrible one while living there
  6. What have I missed?

    Dude you have to time that so she isn't nine months pregnant in August when it is still sailing season(at least in the northern hemisphere). For the next next crew member remember knock her up in June or July so she can race for this and next summer
  7. Girlfriend caught her now ex-husband cheating. Took his last two paychecks and topped off the oil, and propane on their manufactured home. Negotiated themselves the divorce, she took on $6,000 in credit card debt instead of split house equity. He choose to leave behind basically everything but clothes. (She offered multiple times to arrange pickup for it. She took defferement on most of her student loans of about a year(variable) 7 months later was down to $500 credit card debt. We sold her manufactured home, about together a nice house( not huge, but larger and better shape than her manfucatured one). She has boosted her credit score from barely fair to the low end of good. And in 4 months when the last of student loan debt kicks back in she will be able to make full payment again. Take to all loan people so!e loams can be deffered or lowered temporarily to help you out of a hole. Her ex had to Live on his parents sofa for six months as his credit was that bad. H
  8. 21,000 pound bomb dropped?

    The usa has the Daisy cutter. a fuel air thermobaric that could flatten a 600 yard circle. The MOAB was created as while the daisy cutter could flatten an enemy company. it couldn't penetrate the moutian complexs favored by the taliban.
  9. Wow! This is scary!

    Dude, get a grip and just scroll up. I didn't write one word to you, then you wrote some stupid thing about me being microchipped in some cabbage farm in Indonesia. If you don't want a shitfight, why do you start shifights? That makes no sense, it's like a john who complains about his crabs. What'd you say you hate filled homophobic cunt? I made fun of your propensity to always have a novella about everything- you can't handle that- I made fun of you being a one-upper- oh the humanity- That has fuckall to do with what you said in another thread- something you refuse to acknowledge and will continue to deflect- Because you are a spineless tiny little weak insecure cunt who cannot ever be wrong for being wrong shows weakness and you're such a weak little cunt you can't bring yourself to admit it. You can't even laugh at yourself, you're so worried about being everything, knowing everything, living everything, you can't even take the piss out on yourself because you're so insecure as a man- a tiny insignificant cunt of a sniveling little pathetic excuse for a man. He lacks the depth and warmth that are required to be a cunt. Just sayin' 😊 most of the posters here can't tell the difference between a count and an asshole. 😅They pull out covered in shit and think that was a fucking great cunt
  10. Woody. This is the shit that goes. I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.( Boys of summer Don henely 1984) Same BS different decade. You know your old when you think the same bullshit is something new.
  11. ME109 "jet" (thanks CNN) found in Denmark

    both. They didn't have the computer design tools to test configurations so they had to build it. You start with something that works and you expand and expand upon it. Until it becomes impractical. Look up computers of World War II. Eventually you find something that doesn't work. Why build a large 4 cylinder engine for a car vs a small 6 cylinder? there are reasons.
  12. Time Change

    I have read this thread and am disappointed in all you claimed to be sailors. Week night beer can races don't happen without Daylight savings time. As if you fall back the hour the sun sets by 6:30-7:00. And in those cold winter mornings when you don't want to get out of bed would you prefer a sunrise at 8am or 7am? Sailors are used to maximizing daylight hours as adjusting sail trim is a lot harder at night even with glow in the dark telltales.
  13. Healthcare - when did I turn into a number

    I remember when I hit the workforce in the 80's , company ins, I pay 20% company pays 80%... doctors visit was $40, I pay $8, ins payed $32... then the company moved to one of those hmo's type things where you pay a copay... etc.. same doctor, visit is now $120, my copay was $20 and ins was paying the rest.. so my cost went up $12 and ins payout went from $32 to $100... not sure who came up with that brilliant system.. I'm still trying to figure out why it is the employer's responsibility to provide health care. Because that's how America set it up in the 40- and 50's. The problem is no one wants to change that aspect when it is the best thing to change. It also makes people personally responsible instead of employer dependant
  14. Healthcare - when did I turn into a number

    obamacare was just enforced purchasing of healthcare insurance and a bit of susbisdies to help those who cant afford $1,000 a month to pay for it. seriously the Democrats forced the poor, cheap and lazy to pay something for the healthcare they were getting for free unlimited emergency room care. So what's the republican plan take away the affordable part and stop forcing them to pay for insurance. that way they can once again go back to getting it for free from the emergency room. You want to lower costs? Kick everyone onto individual plans so they are aware of their costs, stop subsidizing companies who profit from providing healthcare for thier employees. Which companies? everyone that has more than 500 employees and self funds the pays to healthcare. Why do they profit? because for 90% of their annual costs the money is paid for by the employee only contributions. So the unless something terrible happens they don't actually have to contribute. Insurance companies adjust rates to allow those companies to continue to profit at the same rate. You want to drop rates you need minimum pools of insuranced of a million people. And suddenly rates will stablize. Next up ban all advertisements by pharmaceutical companies which currently spend up to 50% of their gross profits on marketing.
  15. So, I Opened the Bottle and as Promised....

    Whiskey scotch and other alcohol needs darkness. Left in daylight like that will alter the flavor. Also I am jealous and now in need of a good scotch from 1978
