      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. J/88

    Saturday's breeze was 20-25 kts and cold out of the north, with 2-3' chop and an occasional 4' roller. I heard the 88 blew out their kite on the first downwind of the first race. Half the class were running wing-on-wing without their kites and finishing even with the boats wiping out under their kites. Probably not a good indicator of inter-boat performance. Sunday was clear with 15-18 kts out of the east, lesser seas. All boats using kites. A better day of boat comparison. The 88 was flying, like they found the overdrive missing from the day before. Even their upwind legs were faster. All races W/L with consistent breeze which kept the course fairly square. The 92 had an excellent crew, some cat3 that often sail together. The 88 also had sail maker on board. The 109s and 120 all have good crew though I think mostly weekend warriors (including yours truly). The 88 was also sailing "exhibition" as they don't have an official PHRF rating for the boat yet. 87 was the recommended rating by Rod / JBoats. The 109s were supposed to have their own class, until one lost their mast two weeks prior, therefore the mixed fleet. JFest is always good fun.

    Gordon died. So Susan went to the local paper to put a notice in the obituaries. The gentleman at the counter, after offering his condolences, asked Susan what she would like to say about Gordon. Susan replied, "You just put, 'Gordon died.'" The gentleman, somewhat perplexed, said, "That's it? Just 'Gordon died?' Surely, there must be something more you'd like to say about Gordon. If it's money you're concerned about, the first five words are free. We really should say something more." So Susan pondered for a few minutes and finally said, "O.K., then. You put 'Gordon died. Sailboat for sale.'

    A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge Heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever. At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral........I'm a gynecologist". The proctologist fainted.

    Dear Abby, My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit-card bills and at the end of the month, if I try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says pay the minimum and lets our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up with the interest. Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch, to whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more. Also, he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, and the next he's with Muslims. Finally, the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath. It's just so horribly creepy! Can you help? Signed, Lost in DC --------------------------- Dear Lost: Stop whining, Michelle. You're getting to live in the White House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for you. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with the son of a bitch for the next year! Signed, Abby

    Similar to: Top 5 reasons boats are better than women: 5. Boats don't expect you to call the day after you use them. 4. A boat will let you drop anchor whereever you want to. 3. Boats don't care if you drink while you are on them. 2. Boats don't mind if you board other boats. 1. You can use tie downs on your boat.

    MISSING WIFE The day after his wife disappeared in a kayaking accident in the Bay Of Fundy, a man answered his door to find two grim-faced Mounties. "We are sorry sir, but we have some information about your wife", said one of the Mounties. "Tell me! Did you find her!?" the husband shouted. The Mounties looked at each other, one said, "We have some bad news, some good news, and some really great news. Which do you want to hear first?" Fearing the worst, the husband said "Give me the bad news first." The Mountie said, "I'm sorry to tell you, sir, but this morning we found your wife's body in the bay." "Oh my God!" exclaimed the husband. Swallowing hard, he asked, "What's the good news?" The Mountie continued, "When we pulled her up, she had 12 twenty-five pound snow crabs and 6 good-size lobsters clinging to her." Stunned, the husband demanded, "If that's the good news, what's the great news???" The Mountie said, "We're gonna pull her up again tomorrow."

    In Washington , D.C. an old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people of the nation's capital and was well known among the elected officials. He motioned for his nurse to come near. "Yes, Father?" said the nurse. "I would really like to see President Obama and Speaker Pelosi before I die", whispered the priest. "I'll see what I can do, Father", replied the nurse. The nurse sent the request to The President and Congress and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived; President Obama and Nancy Pelosi would be delighted to visit the priest. As they went to the hospital, Obama commented to Pelosi, "I don't know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images and might even get me re-elected." Pelosi agreed that it was a good thing. When they arrived at the priest's room, the priest took Obama's hand in his right hand and Pelosi's hand in his left hand. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest's face. Finally President Obama spoke.. "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?" The old priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." "Amen", said Obama. "Amen", said Pelosi. The old priest continued, "Jesus died between two lying thieves; I would like to do the same."
