      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.

    "Is there anyone here who can "keep on top of Misty"? I'd give it a sporting try. " If you stay on for 8 seconds - that must make you a winner!
  2. Fess Up...How many of you have sailed a Sea Snark?

    If I remember the story right, Paul Foerster's (4 time USA sailing Olympian - 3 time Olympic medalist) first sailboat was a Sea Snark (or equivelent) that his father bought for the family down in Corpus Christi, TX! I think that it may have even come from the local Sears.
  3. Gary W Mull

    Many years ago (and maybe is response to some kids who also sailed), Gary wrote down the rules of physics that effect the performance of a pinebox derby car that I guess that Cub/Boy Scouts may still race today. If I remember right, he said that as much of the weight of the car needs to be near the rear of the car so that when it is raised up on the ramp, it has the most potential stored force for acceleration as it goes shooting down the ramp. Does anybody else remember this, and just for the heck of it does anybody have a copy? It might make some Anarchists here who have kids in the Scouts a hero to their kid.
