      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.

heart rate

 

slowly dropping

 

remember it this way

 

australia is big and has more people

 

so it gets a big star and more little stars with more points

 

nz is more socialist

 

so it gets communist red stars, and only 4 of them, with little white outlines, so they stand out

Don't be one of those 'flag etiquette' dickwads. #21 looks fine.

 

But if you find who coined the first 'tractor' language I might save it for tonight!

Clean: Give me 6 months to trail back through the dross of SAAC and you're on! On the other hand, i bet you cant find three kiwis that are less waddish than i and who don't mind having Aussie stars on our flag. :)

(It'd be like having your south's rebel flag flown in Newport RI.)

 

Fuck, I hate being proven a dickwad. :(

...calling NZ's boat a "tractor" was coined by KooTooki, and that it was a stupid ass post, trying to sound academic, and in response to an entirely fabricated argument by an even worse local SF poster. Like anyone with the least bit of a smidgeon of a brain ever though New Zealand's boat looked slow.

It was more about the more agricultural look of ETNZ compared to the slender, sleek 'batboat' look of OBTUSE. Going to the front page with loongmord's pic. Nice!!!!

ahahaha LMAO :D

I just managed to stay away from all stuff AC since Sunday cause it's too time consuming (especially SAAC) and I had some work to finish.

Let me just empty the bottle of Matua Sauvignon Blanc while I watch the second race, and I'll get back to you later. Cheers!

i think they should add a feather duster to the back of that tractor!

That's the funniest thing I've heard all week.

No. I think it needs a nice silver mascot on the bonnet.

You know, one from Garrards...

so why the hell are those flags so alike ?? are you both still under british rule??

 

Technically the answer is closer to yes than no. The monarch of both Oz and NZ is the same person who is the monarch of the UK. So the authority to rule of all three governments is rooted in the same person. Not just Oz and NZ of course. Canada, Fiji, Granada, Jamaica, and another 9 nations. Interestingly, if the UK were to become a republic, this would not affect (now ex) UK monarch's position as head of state of the rest of these Commonwealth countries.

 

The main reason the flags are so alike is that we both have a great view of the Southern skies.

Dear All,

 

Hi.

 

It s my first post on this forum, and as far as I understand, this subject is about printing Red Tractor T-Shirt ?

 

I would like to know how to do it: just download the .jpg & find a t-shirt boutique which can do that ?

 

My Best Regards to the Sailing Anarchy community

 

Yours sincerely

Tried this last night, the more professional places say that the res is too low and it will come out grainy.

 

Tried to get one done overnight but no dice.

I just grabbed the pics off a google search but even so, full image is 2300 x 1531 pixels which should be plenty of resolution to print an image on a T-shirt.

 

Firstly: Don't just right click and save the image in this thread as this is effectively a thumbnail. Instead, click on it once to get a larger preview, then right click and download. If this too has been down sized go to the direct link below.

 

Second Option: Go to the direct Flicker link and download orignal resolution file here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/101668485@N04/9730669329/sizes/o/in/photostream/

One of the original Red Tractors:

 

Used by Sir Ed to get to the South Pole.

 

He was only meant to go halfway setting up supply depots for Fuchs, (using snowcats), coming from the other side on the ist crossing on the Antarctica but keep going and reach the pole before Fuchs.post-23753-0-10458100-1379131225.jpgpost-23753-0-61217500-1379131256_thumb.jpgpost-23753-0-29766300-1379131283.jpgpost-23753-0-63031100-1379131308.jpg

You photoshop guys are too much!

 

Very saucy, haven't laughed so much for ages :lol:

 

Looks as though a wide selection may be available if we wait

 

Not sure if I prefer the original unadulterated classic, or one of the modded versions :unsure:

 

Kiwi in drivers seat, pie warmer on the drawer bar facing the viewer, and feather duster with handle as bowsprit?

 

All good!

Hi

 

Thank you Burbanite thank you Webfish,

 

AFAIK he Red Tractor has an Aussie mecanician trimming the throttle,

 

May be it was the kind purpose of the extra big star on the flag ?

 

A little A-Cat class symbol somewhere could be a fair reminder of this Aussie talent

 

or try to find the logo of the Bendigo's sailing Club for the same reason

 

Just a question to Snaerk, do you write in Turkish, Finnish, or Hungarian ?

 

Regards

 

Benchie

sorry, forgot to post the big tractor pic. So here's the highest resolution I have (2300x1531). The original image is © Chris Cameron / ETNZ, so I think anything beyond private use is prohibited. If you like the photoshopping and wanna buy me a beer, send me a PM

Ok boys. We have left the foiling tractor artwork with "California Smiles" T shirt shop Fisermans Wharf. They'll make them up while you wait.

Cheers

 

I have one on the way, will be here tomorrow...

 

Thanks for doing the leg work on this.

That is actually the front and back views. I had no idea what I was getting, I read the post by Roota, called the shop in SF and asked them to send me one overnight. It is now packed in my luggage on its way with me to the race at the Circuit Of The Americas (I like the segue) in Austin, TX this weekend.

 

I'll miss the races live today but will be catching up later. Off to LAX...
