      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.

    With Mike's support, the watermelons will hate it even more, sadly.
  2. That's Mr. President to you. You're very, very bad. Show some respect, please.

    Do they even need a decent hull?

    Well...I'm pretty sure ETNZ/LR have thrown the ball a long way out this time. What do I think? I don't exactly know. One thing though, I'm glad hull design is open, because there's a shit load of boat which is probably only there to make that water machine (dare I say boat?) look like a mono. Granted, you'll want max-beam where the foils are canted, but if we believe the designer hype, the hull won't be in the water fuck all of the time anyway. But I have to say the hull is bloody clunky for the supposed overall concept. I cannot believe Guillaume Verdier has put his optimum hull lines forward for this concept drawing. If you bolted those lizard-leg foils to the sides of Hugo Boss, I'd be slightly more convinced (but without her big wide arse of course). We live in truly interesting times.

    Not only that they work, but that they are reefed and they still work. Had it been a wing, they probably wouldn't have left the dock.

    On the other hand, if rate and taxpayers don't front up, that's exactly what will happen.

    Don't lose any sleep over it all, Stinger. I'm sure someone, somewhere is looking at the numbers.

    Is that the correct airline? Just sayin.

    Very cool, TC. Lots of paragliders ride the thermals above the Ocean Beach cliffs at Mangahwhai Heads, Northland where I live. It looks very exhilarating.

    Looks like it could be another daft Phillippe Starck wet dream to me.

    Just good mates. But I don't live in Dipton.

    Say what? They don't allow pineapple and spaghetti on pizza. Untenable.

    Family. Grand children. Nightmare traffic. Can't quite decide which is the most aggravating.

    Aren't there supposed to be carbon fibre clip-on cycle and walkways about to be bolted on?
