      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

Best-Most Favorite- Drink Recipe.....

This is THE BEST pitcher of margaritas you will ever have. I am bribed by my friends to make it for them at parties.

 

1. Simple syrup

3/4 or 1 cup of regular sugar added to 1 cup of boiling water - stir until disolved and set aside to cool. Vary the sugar depending on how sweet you want it to be. I prefer 3/4 cup, its still plenty sweet.

 

2. Lime Juice

Juice fresh limes to make 1 cup of lime juice. Some pulp is desirable. DO NOT USE store bought lime juice. If you even think about doing so, choke yourself.

 

3. Combine simple syrup with lime juice in a suitable pitcher

 

4. Add 1 cup high quality tequila as desired. It doesn't have to be huge $$ tequilla, just don't use rot gut crap.

 

5. Add 1/2 cup Triple sec

 

6. Add 1/2 cup Cointreau or Grand Marnier (whichever you prefer. I like Cointreau the best, but both work equally well)

 

7. Stir pitcher and then put in refridgerator to chill (sugar water may still be warm).

 

8. Serve over ice. Salt rims if desired.

 

These 'Ritas will blow.you.away!

 

 

Sounds good, but somewhat sweet. I think I would like this if it was hot, but not scorching.

 

Wait till a really hot, scorching day, and try the margaritas recipe I posted. That sour, salty taste is incredibly refreshing when it is really hot out.

Jeff would probably like this one. it's based on a joke, but there is a real cocktail version of it which is perfect for sailing because it uses saltwater / ocean water.

 

First the joke, a Bin Laden cocktail, mix two shots with a splash of saltwater.

 

Now the real cocktail, it's called a Zouk Machine, helpful on a boat when you want to give the illusion of conserving drinking water.

 

- 1 part rum

- 1 part coconut milk (the canned kind, not the soymilk kind)

- 1 part ocean water

- moisten rim of glass and dip in sugar, (similar to salting the rim of a margarita glass.)

 

VERY tasty. Since you use canned coconut milk, the seawater gives the drink a freshness if you don't have fresh fruit or fresh juice.

Sounds good, but somewhat sweet.

 

I do the same recipe (except that I grate lime zest into the syrup and let it set for a whle, then strain). As long as there's more booze than syrup, it's not overly sweet. Agree that fresh lime juice is a 100% requirement for a good 'rita.

 

Then again, your recipe's no slouch B)

Not much chance of that happening with mine :P

 

I will have to try this with and without the lime zest, and see what Mrs. BOB thinks.

Gray Goose Martini, a spritz of vermouth, on the rocks, shaken, 3 olives and a little dirty. It's like heaven in a cup!

 

My fave! I just don't get to drink them often enough. A bottle of GG in Canada is 60.00. Three times the price of middle shelf Vodkas. I do treat myself every once in awhile.

 

Why do the women always seem to like it dirty?

 

Bombay Sapphire, a very, very tiny drop of vermouth, shaken on ice in a steel shaker and poured into a chilled glass.

 

With four big fat blue cheese stuffed olives.

You must be single.

Herbsaint: listen to the name, which is a play on the word 'absinthe.' Why, you may ask? Because Absinthe was made illegal many years ago (and is not now), and NOLA, being of a more European culture than the rest of the US, had an absinthe-drinking population, and thereby a demand for it, and Herbsaint was invented AS A REPLACEMENT.

 

Now that absinthe has now been re-legalized, you can use it in a Sazerac. I suggest LUCID, which is a decent cheaper brand, ergo for mixing and not only that, but is produced by a Louisiana fellow, a graduate of USL (Lafayette, Louisiana), Ted Breaux. LUCID has a nice bite that works well in mixed drinks.

 

a nice twist on the Mojito, the Mint Muse:

 

 

1 1/2 oz. Lucid Absinthe Superieure

2 oz. Pineapple Juice

Mint Leaves
1 wedge(s) Lime
Sprite or 7-Up

Muddle mint leaves with lime wedge and add Lucid. Add ice and pineapple juice and shake briefly. Top with Sprite or 7-UP and add mint sprig.
Oh, by the way, before the ignorant step in and insist that modern (good) brands of absinthe really aren't, here's a website with the deets:

1 t simple syrup

A really old one, updated

 

Bombo

 

3 oz. dark rum (or amber) e.g. demerara, or some mainland rum

 

2 t. demerara or turbinado or plain dark sugar

 

Place sugar in bottom of old fashioned glass and fill with ice. Add rum and stir for a long time to help dissolve sugar as much as possible and also to aid ice melt. Generously grate fresh nutmeg over all, and serve. Some also add cinnamon on top, but I don't like it.

What you guys need to remember is there's two kinds of drinking.

 

Drinking to get drunk and

Drinking to get laid

 

There's a huge difference in the drink recipes depending on the assumptions

My favorite recipe is:

  • good scotch (Balvenie Caribbean cask is a fine place to start the evening)
  • maybe just a dash of spring water.
  • refill as needed

Anyone like Drambuie? Back in Scotland I used to have a delicious Drambuie mix, they called it a Roger Mellie ...

 

1 part Drambuie

1 part Scotch

3 parts Rose's lime

serve over ice

 

Another delicious drink was the Paisley X-Ray ...

 

2 parts Drambuie

5 parts Irn-Bru

sprig of mint or grass, smashed

served over ice

 

Irn-Bru is hard to get outside of Scotland. Paisley X-Rays go great with an afternoon of golf.

Wait, a rusty nail usually has a little less Drambuie, I think 1:1 Drambuie and Scotch is too sweet for a Rusty Nail. More like 1:2 or 2:3 is good.

 

If you like a Rusty Nail though, the Roger Mellie is very good, you might try it, when I was there some folks added quinine to it, thus the Rose's lime, because there was a mild malaria going around Scotland. I never had it with quinine, but I tried it with aspirin powder, that was excellent, the bitter in the aspirin powder ate up some of the sweetness.

 

Drambuie is very delicious, maybe a little too sweet, but the sweetness balance with bitter, like 1:2 Drambuie and Stout. I wish I had one of those right now.

 

I make a very simple Drambuie cocktail, just Drambuie and aspirin powder, never ice, that's a winter drink. The aspirin powder balances the honey in the Drambuie. very delicious. it doesn't have a name.

That's a good idea to have them otw, for some reason I always think of rusty nails as a winter/holiday drink.
