      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.

    A nice reminder of what's important on this national day of thanks
  2. SpaceX barge landing

    Post landing press conference with Elon Musk 4K landing footage
  3. Volvo folding mods to eliminate corrosion?

    This has been designed for this exact problem: http://www.corrosionandmarine.com/applications.html Watch the video under the Tutorial tab. It is very thick and extremely sticky, I have been using it for years on prop splines and they always slide off exactly like the day I put it on. Ideally everything should be clean and dry with all salt washed off, but you could try an underwater application until you have a chance to haul it. Don't cheap out and coat only the ends apply it liberally to both parts completely.

    She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.

    Just read La Vie en Douche this morning, which got me to thinkun... If HR can find a couple of cheap Mac 26's with 50hp Mercs on Craiglist or Ebay, he could lag bolt them to each side of the FH and have a way cool quadramaran, with the added bonus of a very nice bachelor pad for Mikey on one side and an in-law apt. for Mom on the other. Anybody have some laying around?

    Maybe an attorney on here could draft a simple liability waiver for HR to sign before helping out? after he allegedly literally bit the hand that helped him? waiver or not I wouldn't give him a hand towing. he is heavily weighing risk reward against himself. HR's "dream" had nothing to do with sailing, his dream was to: 1. "Leave the workforce" - he listed himself as retired (at 52) on the booking sheet 2. "Stop paying taxes" - that's why he needed a boat 3. Live off his mothers disability checks and lawsuit settlements - if he can get another one, even better. 4. Completely ignore any laws or rules that he believes don't apply to him (including the laws of physics) I have zero sympathy for him BUT, I do feel sorry for the members of his family that he is dragging down with him and taking money from. I don't know all the ins and outs of salvage law but is there any way that a tow company could call this a salvage operation to shield themselves from any liability, then hopefully not charge him much or anything? It seems it would be far easier and safer to get it safely out into the delta while HR is still locked away if Michael is amenable to it......

    Typically that means the poster deleted the post after notification was sent but before you got a chance to see it on the forum. Yeah I posted it then deleted it right away, but since you posted it the question remains - is RedViking Michaels brother? Either he is or he had some bad shellfish today.

    So do I mate. So do I, but it would be nice to see him pull it off if only to get some of the knobheads on here to shut the fuck up for once. Most of the twats on here would be quite willing to watch a blind man get run over by a truck just to be able to tell him how stupid he was for being blind in the first place. This blindly arrogant little twit has been told 287 times that the truck is fucking coming but he systematically refuses to believe it. That is the source of most of the anger and ridicule in this thread. If you don't get that, then you're not any smarter than HR is. I've learned a lot from this forum (yes I knew that little) and many others, and most of the most important things I've learned are WHAT NOT TO DO. We'll see how it turns out.
