    Uber could be The Democrats undoing.

    Double the number of taxi services in NYC and all traffic stops, if any elected official wants to remain in office in NYC they do not fuck with traffic. Has fuck all to do with the unions, the infrastructure can not support more motor vehicles and Uber is encouraging just that. Rudy G. would have acted the same, right or wrong, stopping traffic for anything other than a parade, is political suicide.

    Police Shooting Dogs

    OC spray works on bears just fine. For the number posted above, some context;" From nips and bites to actual attacks, violent dog behavior continues to pose a serious threat to our employees. To emphasize the enormity of this issue, we are reporting the number of dog attacks and bites as one number. Last year, nearly 5,600 Postal Serviceā„¢ employees were victimized by dogs." That includes just about anything, the strangely wolf like greeting in the original post would qualify if a mail carrier felt threatened enough to make a note of it. Not saying it doesn't happen, because it does, but context is important when using statistics to validate an argument. Unless you are a politician...

    Basically every actual expert who has helped or more often attempted in vain to help Doug has been met by such a barrage of bullshit and flat out harassment that we doubt they want anything to do with him. We consider a certain multiple Moth world champion and current member of an America's cup team who refused to continue posting here unless DL stopped his constant bullshit to be a prime example. WE also note how many damn times DL has been suspended from SA for his disruptive NONSENSE, which we have decided is not an easy thing to do, or a common occurrence. I would tell who else also worked on this comment, but the large number of expert analysts behind me, would rather i didn't and we are legion. LEGION!!! We have also decided this would be a good time to remind all reading not to buy into DL being a victim. With an agreeable attitude, some modesty and a dose of just common respect DL could have had a massive amount help, he chose to piss off and argue, chasing once helpful contributors from thread to thread until they stopped posting. We are pretty sure his experts are random people on boatdesign.net. Who, for whatever reason, tolerate him far better than SA does. Now DL will respond to me with insults.

    Not to mention animal control officers. Or any of our bulk tank drivers, just about every farm has at least one dog, 200+ farms every day...none have been bit - AMAZING! Here is another story, with far less middle ground than the first i posted. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/23/lexie-dog-shooting_n_5614051.html Why wait for animal control, when your firearm is right there on your hip!!! Then allegedly falsify the report, threaten the examining veterinarian and how the fuck do these guys still have their jobs? The dead dog aside, falsifying documents...

    Provided this guy is annoying, but a good example for discussion. Police searching for a missing toddler, entered this guys yard and shot his dog....kid was found in her own home sleeping.

    The hardest part in commenting on this video is attempting to recall all the things i thought would be problems. It has been going on for YEARS, over and over, multiple threads constantly. I think i questioned most the upwind viability and tacking, i think...maybe Doug or some one else can recall. Oh and price complexity on a full size boat, which i stand by as the main foil alone if scaled would be prohibitively expensive, that thing is massive and one rock strike away from epic failure. More than anything the number one thing was to "stop fucking posting and just build the damn thing" which FINALLY seems to have happened! well kinda.. Still very, very early so Doug...try not to blow your load and stick to reality. What i saw, it foiled - downwind - with a reasonably massive amount of water spraying up from the lee foil. In its current state that just doesn't look efficient, but once again -reality- it is early in an very complicated project involving multiple dynamic forces interacting in a natural environment. Making it this far is worthy of praise, really, keep at it. But please ease up on the whole peoples foiler stuff, the Hobie trifoiler, a much simpler boat 20 years ago failed in the market at a price point far below what i would expect a "Fire Arrow" could possibly achieve, even at cost without labor. To be a revolution first you must show how this model is better than the models built in the 80s. as a benchmark i think the trifoiler was a $12K (?) boat in the early 90's so adjusted for inflation about $21k today. That is crazy hard benchmark to achieve, so just have fun with it.

    It isn't a boat, but i'm sure some of the sportsman on here will appreciate this add. http://syracuse.craigslist.org/spo/4577612361.html Good news is, it'll be up until sold! Which should be...forever... First pic. um...wtf...that doesn't look right, nah no one could have... Fourth pic; Oh yeah, they did....then took pictures and posted them without noticing. I love the internet.

    http://spacecoast.craigslist.org/boa/4515656331.html $150 boat with plenty of room http://spacecoast.craigslist.org/boa/4515930577.html $65 motor use then sell together for $250 when you are done, easy.
  9. Nope, there was no one policing up the brass. The mock town they were shooting up was from the Humvee gun trucks from a distance. Not so much inside. I'm betting there were literally thousands of rounds of 1x fired .50BMG, 7.62 and 5.56 brass laying around in the desert. I think they do a range cleanup once every quarter, but I think that is mostly for UXOs and not so much for just general litter. Even if they did pick up the brass, it would not be great after sitting out in the elements for 3-4 months. I thought about it as we were driving back from the range that I could have made a small fortune just from the brass that was falling in my lap from the guy shooting above me in the Humvee turret. Dumb.ass.
  10. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/01/nyregion/federal-judge-upholds-majority-of-new-york-gun-law.html 10 rounds are ok, appeals are in progress, thus it isn't over. 200 jobs and 2.7million in investment isn't much in the big picture. With ~20,000,000 residents in the state really, not a huge loss. Remington is still here and are playing the game. Taxes are only high in NYS for companies who fail at playing the system of rebates, it is high for residents regardless, but manufacturing operations can basically pay nothing IF they apply for all the right red tape incentives. In some cases pay nothing for years in advance by carrying over "credits". I do not support -most- of the SAFE act, well just about none of it except not allowing the names and addresses of CCW to be subject to FOIL. Nor am i a big fan of corporate welfare, which abounds in NYS, but confusing the fundamental issue, which is a person's civil liberties as guaranteed by the constitution, with overblown rhetoric trying to justify a repeal to legislation because .000002% of the population might be out of work because their employers value getting back at the governor more than their own employees....isn't likely to change anything. Care to provide a cite for that growing and relevant secessionist movement?
  11. Fixed in red. The "secessionist" movement is far smaller than it once was and the environs? are far down the list of groups to get any attention beyond lip service. The majority of NY residents are opposed to fracking and yet the Gov. still refuses to actually take a stance much less do anything besides put the decision off for later. The magazine capacity portion of the SAFE act has been suspended recently, perhaps forever. Most of the bill remains worthless at best. It is still in litigation and i am hoping to see it overturned entirely, but that doesn't seem likely so will just go ahead and not vote for anyone who supported it. JBSF - range control would not be pleased, always clean up your brass and return to the ammo supply point. The military does reload, even the AF. Although what you said makes me wonder if it was the AF who used one of the mock up towns on Bragg that one time, brass everywhere (stairs were extra fun in the dark) in the building was like fighting on a skating rink. Group even cleans up after themselves and they have a virtually unlimited budget.

    I'm in just such an industry, and we carry inventory. Perversely, the only reason we can afford to do so is because nobody else does, which means we get to triple our margin when someone can't wait for the factory to make X Y or Z. Customer reaction to this is split roughly 50-50. 50% think we're the greatest thing since birth control, 50% think we're whoring thieves. It's a mad mad world. I've seen a company pay $2,000 for a $500 part, it is actually very normal in an industrial setting to do so rather than wait for a new batch to be made from the company supplier under warranty. Many of not most companies are will to roll the dice on getting ripped off on a small part down the road rather than stocking a massive inventory, especially if investors are involved for some reason. Maintenance departments hate it when the order to have another one on hand through the supplier is then stopped, after the fact and they have just returned from the airport, but usually can't get past the bean counters.

    So when about is the loosely projected day for a sea trial? Looks absolutely beautiful, but without a rig i half expect either a giant with a double paddle to take it for a spin or a guy with a big drum and a company of Vikings to row it off to a distant battle.
