    Saw it with the in-laws. I had a lot of questions to answer afterwards (my family are the only sailors in the bunch), but I think they made if very accessible to non-sailing folks. Now I have to read the book. EDIT: Not on netflix, but I see you can rent it on Prime Video at Amazon.

    Puerto Rico January 2020. . .

    So, looking to do a bareboat charter in PR at the end of December 2019/beginning of January 2020. (I know, the biggest caveat is how this year's hurricane season pans out--will there be any PR left to visit?) Despite that, does anyone have recommendations of bareboat charter companies out of Fajardo, PR? We have bareboated in FL near Pensacola, and the Baltic, but this is the first excursion in PR (we have been to PR several times before, just not sailing). We would like to charter with a local company, if that's possible (and advisable), or through a broker that contracts with locals. Danke!

    Quieter than a .20 cal pellet rifle.

  7. I agree with you, and it's not only Government. My example was actually a non-governmental professional organization, but I think the same rules apply.

    Kentucky Derby, correct call or robbery?

    Trotters or pacers?
  9. So true. Dealing with that issue right now at work, where a poorly executed study ended being a one-of-a-kind, yet gets cited frequently and is then used to set policy. Any decent first year Biology student could pick out the flaws. How scientific policy makers just accept and propagate bad scientific papers without scrutinizing them is beyond me.

    There used to be this product called "Gopher Gas". . .

    So I can't write 22/100 as a decimal (I'm guessing some PA fuckery due to the gun debate), but I can write .45 ACP? Bizarre. That's why I stay out of PA and hang with you nice folks.
  12. Ah Prop 65, bane of my existence lately. It is funny that one of the old Prop 65 warnings used to state "this product contains chemicals known to cause cancer in the state of California." The other 49 states were ok, I guess? Combine this with the CPRK and the NY consumer product labelling law, and you get many headaches in the detergent industry right now.

    Well, that's kinda fucked, assuming everyone who isn't a complete asshole is "beta'? Or, maybe you're a Delta and can't help it. . .

    Wait, how the fuck is ".22" translated into "dogballs"? "Dogballs" is not what I wrote. Is this some sort of Aussie autocorrect tomfuckery? What kind of fucking backwoods pageantry is this?

    Yeah, except those dogballs pellet rifles are a lot louder than you think. Plus, you've got to hit the bunny just right -- their brains perhaps aren't where you thing they are in a side shot. Or at least so I'm told (yeah, that's it). . .
