      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.

Haven't had a drink, never touch the hard stuff. Your craziness showed before, now it's just your insolent stupidity.

 

The first sign of an addict is denial.

Repeat after me Harpon, 28% proof REALLY IS hard stuff....

 

You know where denial will get you Harpon ?

 

Up a guyanese river, sitting on a busted crapper, IN a busted crapper, without a toilet, money, food or friends. Kind of like being a fish inside a fish thats dead. Acid is eating you up and you dont even realise it yet.

 

Well played.

Did the collective ever figure out why there are always so many lurkers?

 

Come on Guests, what is your input?

 

Lets keep to the facts of the mission and interpret the unfolding story. Albeit once the story starts up again.

 

Currently its all the Harpoon Show. (whose writing I think is a wee bit bi-polar, but awesome in its own way)

 

Are we in the intermission perhaps?

Trying to read this thread is a soul sucking experience. Nothing of note since Andy's info and pips' meltdown. Vultures looking at the bones of last years meal.

 

btw, wtf is up with the bouncing boobs lady? I mean really, that's almost as bad as that horrific pink wet t-shirt with the ill-aligned nipples picture that never seems to go away.

 

I mean, really. What kind of person uses their tits for an avatar?

 

OK, I'm gonna duck out while you get all chivalrous & take me to task, but I'll check back in later.

You clearly have a choice to either read this thread or not, if it causes you that much distress than exercise that choice. I do find it amusing that of your posts here 90%+ are on the prior 1k days thread, including your opening post about how you were researching Internet rage and accusing people of theft by posting at work.

 

You may want to research effective Internet trolling instead, you aren't very good at it.

Reid & Rachel were married in a secret ceremony yesterday. Soanya & Darshen have moved off the boat and are currently living in a hovel next to the daycare on a muddy 'road.'

Reid plans to get the SA fixed up with funds from Rachel's fam, and after arming her with multiple cannon, sail back to the USA and fire upon any and all SA adherents he e'er finds upon the rising waters.

 

 

oh wait, I've just conferred with Jesus and Buddha again, and they both suggest a good massage and getting laid instead of this sorta message on this thread of Incessant diatribes 'n lies.

Does this mean half of everything the grifter manages to panhandle belongs to sonya and the kid?

 

Better than that Darshen will some day inherit all that reid owns including a renovated and refit anne, unless it's claimed by the Smithsonian.

I will attempt to translate the train wreck of the Schooner Anne (a uniquely inappropriate SA inference) to a shorter form than does this two part multi-year thread. I know those who found cliff notes too long will complain.

 

RS drops out of school goes surfing. Meets sailor goes sailing. Crosses oceans no radio no electronics no money no clothes. Builds another boat in backyard, big heavy schooner to go around the horn no prob. Sails on schooner. Sails to Antarctic. Decides to sail 1,000 days. Returns from Antarctic. Spends twenty years preparing aging schooner to survive 1,000 days at sea. Goes off for a thousand days with young non-seasoned woman. Pregnant, Soanya jumps ship in Oz with the help of previous long distance single handing continuous w/o resupply record holder Jon. Finishes next two years single handing 70 foot schooner till she completes a circumnavigation and returns to NYC and sees son Darshen for first time.

 

Lives with Soanya and Darshen on SA (Schooner Anne) going from dock to dock as he is forced to until he has no more place to keep the SA and heads off to Guyana- although the boat's not in the best of shape, with 5 or six strong exuberant youthful relatively inexperienced crew.

 

Crew puke their guts out through series of gales and then Andy saves the day by diving under and creating a jury rigged steering for broken rudder.

 

SA (Schooner Anne) miraculously drifts by the hand of Buddha, Jesus, and Moses up the same river Stowe was shooting for at the beginnning.

 

Crew jumps ship except tough Rachel, to eat good food, drink cold beer, take a pee in a working head, and to quit throwing up. Brave hero Andy goes off to explore mining gold in a work camp deep upriver (and upriver from the largest waterfall by volume in the world). No word from him for awhile now.

 

And no word at all from Stowe who seems to be stuck upriver with a broken rudder and no means of fixing the problem. Silent for a month. Very uncharacteristic.

 

And the clowns here, who profess to never have wished Stowe one iota of harm, carry on about this and that like loons singing their happy song as twilight takes hold of another day.

or is this a variation on the tin foil hat ?

might also be a way to improve chances of being touched by the noodly appendages of the great spagetti monster ?

instead of throwing all this useless abuse at the good SA citizens, senor Weeks might score a helluvalot brownie points by explanifying his remarkable cosmic, comic and tantric transmogrifications.

Napoleon or Genghis Khan? Moscow voters face tricky decision

 

Published: 22 February, 2012, 20:36

Test polls invite people to vote for Napoleon and Peter the Great

 

Test polls invite people to vote for Napoleon and Peter the Great

TRENDS: Election 2012

 

TAGS: Election, Russia, Thrills&Spills

 

Voting can be a complicated business. In an attempt to ensure the elections go as planned, the Moscow Election Committee will hold a dry run prior to the upcoming polls. However, on the list of candidates you’ll find some surprising names (which dont include Reid Stowe).

 

The election rehearsal will invite the public to turn up at 12 polling stations on Saturday February 25 to make their choices. Yet instead of five real candidates for the presidential post the list will give people the opportunity to vote either for Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, Peter the Great, Winston Churchill or Genghis Khan.

 

Test polls will be held in each of Moscow’s administrative districts. “There we will demonstrate how the real election will go,” said Valentin Gorbunov, the head of Moscow Election Committee.

 

During the test run the committee will monitor the organization of voting, the work of supervisors, and test security cameras.

 

Anyone interested is welcome to come along. (BYO helmet).

YCMTSU

 

p.s. Napoleon is now the new president (on the left, and Harpon is on the right). Situation normal for Harpon.

Timbucketoo, just as I thought this thread spawned from Hell itself couldn't get any dumber or more redikulous, there you go again. This entire thread's a train wreck, long gone far off the tracks.

 

The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming! Stay up to the minute in news from the red scare baiting mccarthyite 1950’s days when you tune into SA for what passes for the latest from SA on the SA.

@ SeaCat, even if I gave these monkeys typewriters, and locked them all in a room for eternity, the best they'd come up with would still be this mess of inhumanity.

Don't understate things, Poon. This thread is more than just inhumane, it is responsible for global warming, unrest in the Middle East, the recent tornados, ugly IMS boats, the Mac 26x, belly shirts for pudgy teen girls AND rap music. Stowe is just a diversion while we pursue our real goal, global domination. There, now the cat is out of the bag.

no, not the Mac 26x ?? you can't be serious, that's way over the top.

 

Poon's statement on "typewriters" is quite in tune with his work on the bondoboat's electrical archeology, stuck in the hippie times, that his (and Weid's) problem, love love love and the manna will fall out of heaven for free.

A real albatross is a far better friend to sailors, and as legend has it may sometimes be the souls of recently perished salty seafaring souls.

 

 

 

There's truly no piercing the veil of ignorance which shrouds this thread of fools, however if i may make one more half hearted attempt to so do-FYI...

 

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

 

 

 

This theorem has nothing to do with The Beatle's, Woodstock, Hippies, Revolution, Reoublicans, Rick Santorm, Rush Limbaugh, Mac 26’s, Apple Products, or Biblical Manna feeding the former Egyptian Slaves during the Exodus.

 

 

And in a spirit of full disclosure the following is also from Wikipedia on those typewriting monkeys.

 

In this context, "almost surely" is a mathematical term with a precise meaning, and the "monkey" is not an actual monkey, but a metaphor for an abstract device that produces a random sequence of letters and symbols ad infinitum. The probability of a monkey exactly typing a complete work such as Shakespeare's Hamlet is so tiny that the chance of it occurring during a period of time even a hundred thousand orders of magnitude longer than the age of the universe is extremely low, but not actually zero.

Variants of the theorem include multiple and even infinitely many typists, and the target text varies between an entire library and a single sentence. The history of these statements can be traced back to Aristotle's On Generation and Corruption and Cicero's De natura deorum, through Blaise Pascal and Jonathan Swift, and finally to modern statements with their iconic typewriters. In the early 20th century, Émile Borel and Arthur Eddington used the theorem to illustrate the timescales implicit in the foundations of statistical mechanics.

For someone who hurls as much insult intended vitriol as you do, you have an amazingly thin skin with even the mildest criticism. Historically hysterical threats to the good name of sailing? Right. Let's add that to the list of crimes against humanity this thread is responsible for. You should take this to the United Nations.

One thing you and Stowe certainly have in common is the way you both walk into the line of fire so eagerly, and then play the victim card when you take a bullet.

He is a yellow Lab, just a family/house dog and full of love. He has a hell of a nose and that damned dog can smell cat shit from the feral cats out in the fields around our house like you wouldn't believe. He goes back and forth and homes in on the scent and then eats what he believes is the most delicious snack ever. Funny, he isn't at all interested in the waste product from our two house cats, must be the difference in diet. There, now the thread encompasses cat shit as well as dog and ape shit. I'll see your horse droppings and raise you a load of elephant shit! The bull shit has been laying on the table since the thread started.

They give their weapons a final check and steel their nerves for the coming fight. This one is for keeps, the CheeseBarge has no more supplies and the rudder finally fell all the way off. They need a new flagship to continue spreading the sprouts and this is the last chance they will have before their internet domain renewal notice comes due!

Back in Touch Wednesday, 14 March 2012 Feb. 28, 2012Supanam

All is well here in Guyana on the jungle river named Supanam. We have been out of touch because our Iridium phone that we normally send our satellite updates out on has not been getting good reception. The phone seems to work but the signal is not very strong. The internet place in town has also had trouble with their internet which comes through a phone company. Time has passed in our lives in the bush. Darshen still goes to school every morning and in the afternoon I row him ashore to play with the children of Nato, the boat builder and other friends from school. We finally got organized and hired some teenage boys to help us work on the schooner. We’ve been busy chipping out old fiberglass and putting new Fer-A-Lite in. Fer-A-Lite is the original material that the schooner was made of. We have also been chipping steel everywhere. This is only the beginning of the work that has to be done and it has been a lot more time consuming than I imagined. We have been slowly laying the groundwork for the repairs that need to be done and I have a feeling that those projects will be difficult too. We wake up at dawn every day and watch the sunrise through the trees. The motorboats start running up and down the river carrying children to school, workers to the village and lumber workers up the river. Some of the boats are so loaded that they are only a few inches above the water. The women carry bright umbrellas to shade from the sun. We still haven’t seen any tourists or foreign boats. Everyone in Supanam has been very nice and we like it here a lot. The Jaguar and the Internet Wednesday, 14 March 2012 Mar. 1, 2012

Supanam

 

As we sat having breakfast one morning, our friend Vishnu Singh drove by in his boat and told us that he had shot a jaguar the night before and we could go see it on the shore nearby. We often wonder if there was a jaguar prowling in the jungle that was so close we can sometimes reach out and touch the bamboo from the boat. The jaguar had been killing the villagers’ baby goats and they called Vishnu to stop the jaguar. He found the remains of a goat nearby and set some traps. Then Vishnu hid in a tree and waited through the night. He heard a noise and shone his big flashlight through the clouds of mosquitoes and shot him.

 

By the time we got ready to go ashore, a couple boat loads of villagers were crossing the river to see the jaguar. We rowed over very close to where the schooner was anchored, walked across a muddy field, and then across a narrow plank slippery with mud and finally saw the dead jaguar in the grass.

 

Darshen asked what did the jaguar say when Vishnu shot it. I told Darshen the jaguar said, “Oh my goodness. I’m shot, I’m dead now. I should never have eaten those people’s goats. I’m king of the jungle, but I learned my lesson. Next time I’ll stay far away from man and his guns.” It’s a fine line between wilderness and civilization. On occasion, each side forays into the other’s camp. As wild and isolated as this place is there is still internet, TV, and instant contact with the rest of the world. People who live in huts on poles watch American news. They are influenced instantaneously by the world media.

Bats Aboard Wednesday, 14 March 2012 Feb. 6, 2012Supanam We have had all kinds of little jungle creatures come aboard like tarantulas, giant beetles, frogs, black and iridescent blue butterflies, big spiders, strange wasps, bees, neon green flies, and bats. The first bat flew into the cargo hold bathroom while Rachel was in there. Her amazement and curiosity fluctuated between “ooohs” and yelps of fear as she looked closely at our furry intruder hanging upside down in a corner of the cargo hold. We were sitting in the cockpit the next night when he flew right past us and took up the same spot in the cargo hold. We all tried to photograph him but only Rachel got a good shot in the dark corner. The next morning we found a sweet plantain busted open and half eaten away, which attracted more flies than one could believe. Soanya covered all the food in the galley with tightly tied plastic screen and we sleep under a mosquito net. The locals said bats are bad to have around. We asked why. They said “Because they bite your ears and toes.” We don’t want bats to get too friendly either because they might bring their friends with them. Then it could get unsanitary. It is spooky to hear them flap and flutter around us at night. So far though, they haven’t bothered us too much. The Beat of a Wooden Drum Wednesday, 14 March 2012 Feb.15, 2012Supanam Finally we woke up to a clear sunny day and we really appreciated it. I was beginning to think the big wooden boat on the shore looked a lot like Noah’s ark through the curtain of rain. Darshen and I rowed ashore for a visit. The boat builder, Nato, and his crew work hard all day. We hear them pounding on the wooden hull which sounds like a big wooden drum echoing across our little jungle river. We see progress on their boat every day. The smell of fresh cut wood wafts over to us. We work every day too but our progress is difficult to see. It takes time to gather materials and workers, and plan major rebuilds. Besides being busy as a mother, Soanya does the shopping, cooking, cleaning and organizing in the aft section of the schooner, as well as sending out our stories. Rachel handles every kind of work but is now specializing in trying to solve our electrical problems. Alex takes care of every kind of muscle work and engine related jobs. They really like being here and express wonder at every little bug, butterfly, and bird. They also enjoy socializing with the local people here and getting a feel for the culture. I am still in wonder at being here. It is a special unique place far off the beaten path. It took three local pilots to get us here and it wasn’t without mishap. I almost feel more isolated here than I did at sea. I will feel more at home when I have wavey seas around me in every direction. Soanya’s View:I am really enjoying my stay here in Guyana . I experience it both as a tourist and as a familiar place at the same time. I like that I can understand and almost speak the pigeon English and that the food is fresh and delicious. Darshen is having so much fun playing with other kids his age. There are a lot of children of all ages everywhere who are happy to have another playmate and he is beginning to pick up the language too (which might be confusing for him when he gets back to New York ). Thankfully, the rains have eased off and the mud is drying so its more pleasant to walk around (traded in my rubber boots for slippers) and we finally caught up with all the laundry from the voyage over here that needed a good washing and drying in hot tropical sun. A lot of people don’t have refrigerators here. Not that they need it since no one wants to eat day old food anyway. They also don’t have hot water, but again in the tropical heat, hot water wouldn’t be used too often anyway. It’s a very simple and basic style of living, but meets all of the needs of the people. I would like to see more art and creative expressions. There doesn’t seem to be any creative writing, painting, drawing, music, theater, or sculpture going on. There is some dance and singing in the capital city, but in the countryside even that is missing. I hope I see a little more of the artsy side before I leave.
