    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.

    You're a public figure now, giving magazine interviews, making all the papers, you're "the talk of the town". Paparazzi are legal in California, get used to it.

    Did you know the Coast Guard will do a free Vessel Safety Check for you? Would you like us to sign you up? http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=V-DEPT

    Well, there you have it. This is not a screw up at all, and once again we have all underestimated the genius of HR. This is his way of cleaning the bottom. Put it on the mud, clean the scum, wait for the tide to come back in and viola! He is still getting ready for his triumphant trip to Hawaii.

    This just in: (HR didn't make the cut) 2013 Darwin Awards 2013 DARWIN AWARDS You've been waiting for them with bated breath, so without further ado, here are the 2013 Darwin Awards: Eighth Place In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. Seventh Place A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he ran", accidentally jogged off a 100-foot high cliff on his daily run. Sixth Place While at the beach, Daniel Jones, 21, dug an 8 foot hole for protection from the wind and had been sitting in a beach chair at the bottom, when it collapsed, burying him beneath 5 feet of sand. People on the beach used their hands and shovels trying to get him out but could not reach him. It took rescue workers using heavy equipment almost an hour to free him. Jones was pronounced dead at a hospital. Fifth Place Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed as he fell through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long flashlight he had placed in his mouth to keep his hands free rammed into the base of his skull as he hit the floor. Fourth Place Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed as he won a bet with friends who said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth and pull the trigger. Third Place After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door, a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the store. The shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing at the counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up and fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, and several customers also drew their guns and fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt. HONORABLE MENTION Paul Stiller, 47, and his wife Bonnie were bored just driving around at 2 A.M. so they lit a quarter stick of dynamite to toss out the window to see what would happen. Apparently they failed to notice that the window was closed. RUNNER UP Kerry Bingham had been drinking with several friends when one of them said they knew a person who had bungee-jumped from a local bridge in the middle of traffic. The conversation grew more excited, and at least 10 men trooped along the walkway of the bridge at 4:30 AM. Upon arrival at the midpoint of the bridge, they discovered that no one had brought a bungee rope. Bingham, who had continued drinking, volunteered and pointed out that a coil of lineman's cable lay nearby. They secured one end around Bingham's leg and then tied the other to the bridge. His fall lasted 40 feet before the cable tightened and tore his foot off at the ankle. He miraculously survived his fall into the icy water and was rescued by two nearby fishermen. Bingham's foot was never located. AND THE WINNER IS.... Zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt ( Paderborn , Germany ) fed his constipated elephant 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries, figs and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally got relief. Investigators say ill-fated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant an olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded. The sheer force of the elephant's unexpected defecation knocked Mr. Riesfeldt to the ground where he struck his head on a rock as the elephant continued to evacuate 200 pounds of dung on top of him. It seems to be just one of those freak accidents that proves... 'sh*t happens' IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPORTANT TO THANK THESE PEOPLE FOR REMOVING THEMSELVES FROM THE GENE POOL.

    To ask a question that assumes the answer contained therein, and then assume others might be able to decipher the meaning of said question is tantamount to the contradiction of the initial premise, which is baseless in as much as the referent isn't clearly stated as an objective fact, but is rather an objectification of the presumed false premise and a nullification of the foundation on which the entire argument is based.
