Greta will be tricked into believing that she can achieve her goal, but eventually she will realise that no matter how loud you shout, the world will not act at the pace she expects and it can lead to her sinking back into a deep depression.

Big swing north, and they've slowed to 5.6 knots.

Wondering how these speeds are calculated. (If they are distance between hourly plots then it explains some of the lower speeds, especially when they have a direction change.)

Well Blighty, thank you so much.  Since I'm not an ignorant fuckhead, I am sure you don't take any pleasure in pissing me off.  I can't tell you how offended I am that you think I am generic, because I am not sure how it's an insult, so there's no offense that I can see.  I am not the only Ed Lada in the world, it was my father's name as well but he has been dead for 15 years now.  I am pretty sure there aren't many others.  My full first name is Edmund and Edmund seems to be the least common of the 'Ed' names.  My last name is not common at all, however some people will recognize it from that famous product of the Soviet car industry, under license from Fiat, I do believe it was marketed by Fiat as the 131.  In Poland they call it a dużo Fiat, meaning big Fiat as there was also a mały Fiat, or small Fiat, the Fiat 126.   Is that specific enough for you?  

In the early 90's they were importing Lada's into Aus. My flat mate's father was a dealer and he gave my flatmate a new Lada. We used to joke that his father must hate him. It was a pile of shit, poorly built and totally unreliable. I drove it once and it was terrible to drive. My 76 Beetle and 20 year old Japanese cars were way better. Funnily enough, the importer used to rebuild the cars before selling them, so I'd hate to imagine how shit they are coming from the factory.

Referring to your surname is sufficient to make fun of you.

You have repeatedly commented in a derogatory fashion referring to "Greta's Superpower".  I will not waste my time to find specific posts, I am sure you remember.  I know, I know, you tiresome twat, you will claim that's what her mother calls it.  I am sure she does.  But you you seem to twist it into some kind of derogatory thing.  Yes, I'm pretty sure about that.

 

Ed Lada this is interesting because I thought I have always referred to her Asperger's as her superpower in a positive way, even explaining as to why it is a superpower for her. If you had the faintest idea what Asperger's is, then you would understand why it is her superpower and not her "superpower". Hint, the quotes would mean I'd be making fun of it. I don't agree with the way she is trying to spread her message (the snarling look and attempt to piss off everyone) by I do admire that in spite of all of the challenges she faces (lets just leave it to the double Atlantic crossing) she has steadfastly refused to compromise her principles.

I know nothing about the RMYS but it sure sounds snooty.  Is it?  Is the R for Royal?  Does that make it important?  As an American I'm not much impressed by a bunch of inbred miscreants with bad teeth, sorry.  How about that Randy Andy, he sure stepped on his dick didn't he. Speaking of stepping on dicks, how does the RMYS feel about your execrable hobby of bullying teenage girls.  Not very good form eh?  I'll just bet you're the life of the royal party there.  Do you insult the commodore's teenage daughter too?  Do you obsess over any other teenagers there?  Dear me, I'm probably being terribly unfair to the rest of the members of the RMYS, they probably only let you join by accident, thought you were someone else, you know, mixed up the paper work.  I'm sure they are a nice bunch in general.  They must be nice,if they suffer your presence.   Are you Swedish?  Do you eat that horrible rotten canned fish they seem so fond of there? 

If you weren't such a clueless fuck, you would understand how much respect Australians have for the British Royal family below.

BTW thanks for inflicting on the world Epstein's good buddy Trump. It's a shame that Epstein was in all probability silenced to protect your great leader. Randy Andy is an irrelevant Royal whilst your guy......

I'm not sure why you think I'm a coward.  I seem to recall that I called you one.  Children engage in that kind of insult, you know, "Oh yeah???  Well so are you!!!"  Tell me Hoppy, or Dark Blight or whatever you call yourself, are you a child?  Wait, I think you mentioned a wife.  Does she know what a misogynist you are?  Does she know you stalk and bully a teenage girl with Asberger's on the internet?  You know when I write misogynist, for some reason it reminds ,me of miso soup.  I like miso soup do you?  I like women too, I don't think you do.

I know Ed Lada you are a coward, because without supplying any other information about yourself you are pretty much anonymous.

Ed,   Didn't you change your screen name also? And speaking of Randy Andy,  don't the two of you share an interest in fraternizing with much younger eastern European girls?  ( NTTAWWT).  Andy hasn't been convicted of anything . How are you disparage him! You have a photo album on a  sailing website called 'Polish Girls (NTTAWWT).   

What is the age when you 'age them out' of your portfolio, so to speak?

I heard that Poland has an active sex industry. A great place for dirty old fuckers from foreign countries to rent girls by the hour without the overtly commercialisation of the sex industry like in other parts of Europe.

Ed Lada must be having a great time creeping out Polish girls.

It's rather funny these morons here. It's pretty clear that a few here believe she is "Saint Greta" and she and her message must not come under scrutiny.

Lada Samara has been like a breath of fresh air to this thread. We just need a Mick Marina and Chevy Corvair to round out the poster list. He was lucky that they never sold Lada's in the US when he was a kid.

Here you didn't refer to Greta's Asperger's as a superpower at all. Was your intention to be positive here? (I'd love to hear your explanation.)

On 11/12/2019 at 11:30 AM, The Dark Knight said:

Asperger's is central to my points about Greta. It is her "superpower" but is also her "kryptonite". To understand my discussion about her parents, her handlers and what they are doing to her that will potentially damage her future mental health, then you must learn about Asperger's.

I'm blown away by your positivism. You really support Greta, don't you! (I doubt you know her personally, but it seems like you are putting forward you know a lot!! I don't, remember - I'm "clueless" according to you - so you must know a lot about me too. I can't wait to learn about myself from you.)

No doubt you will try to attack me as some fucked up form of defense (as you have been doing for days), though I think I might be able to cope with the full weight of your credibility.

I'm not sure why you are bothering to put forward that you are a sweetie when it come to Greta. Please don't think I'm defending Greta, she and her family are doing just fine.

Your statements are more of a reflection of who you are (anonymous or not), rather who you try to attack.

The only person here I ever put on ignore was DaWoody and he whined about it so I un-ignored him.  Because I'm a compassionate kind of guy.  If I don't like want to engage with somebody here I just don't read or respond to their posts, it isn't hard.

I told Blighty that I was done with him because it sounded good.  It did didn't it?  Little does Dark Blight know, but as my boyhood naval hero John Paul Jones said, "I have not yet begun to fight!"

 

By the way, how is Toms River?  I haven't been there is a few years now.

Da woody and I got into it shitfight a while back. He can be a dick. 

TR is the same. A few more liquor stores and franchise restaurants. The wind has shifted West for the winter but the temp hasn't dropped off yet. It’s nice in Seaside now nice half the boardwalk was wrecked in ‘12 and then more in the fire of ‘14. Nowhere for summer trash to rent or go...

You've probably Googled it by now so no point in asking you for book title, author and original publication date, nor plot synopsis.

But the giveaway is - soylent green was NOT re-processed humans so anyone who uses it as a ref to such, clearly hasn't read the book.

Feel free to post a 500+ word essay obfuscating your position. You're turning out to be a really quite adequate substitute for Randumb.

On a crossing, we realized the endive was only a day from rotting--and that was on day 5 or 6. We had our last salad that day. Thank goodness for custom canned meats, and vegetables from a farm somewhere in the Midwest.

Only because the Greta worshipers will be offended by the word “illness” and switch off, that’s assuming they even tried to watch something that goes against their beliefs....

I does bring up a lot of good questions people have asked here and like the fanboys her Greta and her daddy just brushed them away.

Hmmm... you got that backwards. It implies that you are not a climate denier. 

The presentation you put forward in the end supports eating less meat and taking steps to prevent humans wrecking the planet from too many greenhouse gas emissions.

Why would anybody ask meteorologists about climatology? Did you know they are different fields? Being called stupid by someone who has demonstrated their own stupidity is... well... stupid.

But here's the real important thing. @LB 15 is mistaking women's genitalia for people who in LB's opinion have been duped. (I'm going out on a limb here and am going to assume LB is actually male. No female would make such a mistake.) If by some actual misfortune a woman ever got herself into the position of having sexual intercourse with LB (after all, he is a Lonely Boy), then since LB misidentifies women's genitalia, then how on earth could she explain what a clitoris is to LB. It is an ever sadder day for such an unfortunate wretch that such stimulating activities are thwarted by such monumental stupidity.

I can only imagine that your omission of pointing out what kind of deniers LB was referring to was deliberate, though it seems plausible, given LB's confusion about genitalia as already mentioned, that LB is in fact a clitoris denier. (It is plausible there are unfortunate wretches who can verify this).

It's either that, or LB is a bitter old man who happens to be a virgin. 

Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more.

Weak sauce, very generic response.   I am extremely disappointed in you Blighty.  I wasted a perfectly good rant on a clueless dunce.  At least LB 15 enjoyed it, he gets this place unlike you.

If you know any of the lore this site, you would remember Lord Ian Dubin, AKA the Dubinator, sailing's toughest man.  I actually made him cry twice.   We were sipping Mai Tais on the patio at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club back in the day.  I told him my dick was bigger than his.  Well, Ian being Ian, he laughed so hard he cried.  Many Mai Tais later that night, on a midnight stroll in the parking lot with the Dubinator, I whipped it out to take a piss.   The Dubinator caught a glimpse of my member and realized I wasn't lying about it's dimensions and he cried for real that time.  It wasn't pretty.

So Hoppy or Blighty or whatever name you currently hide behind is, kindly crawl back in your hole and cuddle fuck a Koala.  Your pitiful attempts at insulting me are boring and don't merit a response.  Don't bother me any more, mmkay?

Hilarious, on so many levels - most of which, judging from your numerous guardian-inspired essays, you would have no idea about. (the hilarity that is, if i have to explain it)

So - I was waiting for your usual rant about misinformation - instead we got genitalia - you're losing your touch.

But please, continue on. Meanwhile, I will munch on some roast beef, finish my beer, then pour a glass of red.

I do enjoy a good red wine, well aged Bordeaux and Burgundy in particular although I usually have Rioja as my daily drinker.  Those folks at Penfolds make some rather fine wines.

Perhaps there is hope for you after all as long as you don't drink Ripple or Thunderbird.  In vino veritas.

Too funny that there is an actual RMYS down under...

We have a RMYS on these shores (North Brittany), it was a joke, it stands for "Royal Minquiers Yacht Squadron" the Minquiers are some rocks between Jersey and St Malo that only get mentioned in the news when there is an argument between Breton and Jersey fishermen as they all want the lobsters from there.

So the RMYS got created because some North Brittany sailors decided that they too wanted to have some nice letters painted under the name of their boat despite being republicans. They also wanted to make the club really exclusive, but not being aristocrats they had to find sdome other form of exclusivity. Obviously there is no Eton college in Brittany so they picked up a school in St Malo that gave you extra right to get in, owning a battered wooden dinghy also gave you extra credits. Anyway the rules are so convoluted they probably aren't many members, they did win pickle dishes at RORC races in the 80s while poking fun at British aristocrats but nowadays they are mostly racing Cornish Shrimpers in St Malo bay. The joke worked so well that the RMYS is now an allied club to the "Yacht club de France" which is a properly posh club.

In answer to your question about the ladies, define fraternization.  I am not ashamed to admit that I know quite a few beautiful young Polish ladies, including those two.  That doesn't mean I have sex with them.  Don't be jealous.  Maybe if you actually were a decent person, ladies would talk to you as well.  I can't help you there.

Your comment about Randy Andy was pretty funny.  The operative term is "yet".  But then again, he is a royal, the royals are treated differently than us regular folk.  That happens when your mum is worth a few billion and has lots of pretty diamond tiaras.

Of course you don’t pay to have sex with them.  You pay for them to leave. Everyone knows that.

Yes, I have heard that often.  And then you poor suckers wonder why you need to pay for sex.  But that's OK, it just makes it so much easier for us true gentlemen.  Do an internet search for Misogynists Anonymous (MA) and I'm sure you can find a meeting in your area.  "Hi, my name is Dark Cloud and I hate women."

Hello again anarpists all… long time no squeak. I see the usual suspect dick waving is in full process.

Sweeeet!

Sailing a ‘cruising’ Cat across the North Atlantic in winter… Is:
 

(a. Ballsy

(b. Foolhardy

(c. Risky when adhereing to a non-sail related onshore timeline deadline

(d. Its a lucky boat we'll be just fine

 

Much as Sailing Le Vag is a cheerful, feel-good youtube/TV brand… putting your family, baby and boat willingly into 3-5m winter seas for a continued three weeks pummelling…

Hmmmmhmmmmn….

Yes, Outremers build will be signed off RCD code A – Ocean…. However there are many reasons why sailing to the Caribbean is relatively easy…coming back?  Not so much.

Even if you do attempt it in May with the Bermuda/Azores stops it’s a high attrition rate on gear.

I really do hope they make it safe, sound, relatively unscathed.

Then again, La Vag is stuck in Lisbon in the Atlantic in winter wrong side? Unless they scoot back down to the Canaries and whizz back to the Caribb?

(Decisions…. Decisions) The stress of command…. Eh

Commercial break over….

Back to the willy waving.

I really do hope they make it safe, sound, relatively unscathed.

 

Then again, La Vag is stuck in Lisbon in the Atlantic in winter wrong side? Unless they scoot back down to the Canaries and whizz back to the Caribb?

 

(Decisions…. Decisions) The stress of command…. Eh

 

Commercial break over….

Back to the willy waving.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Its not the first dumb thing they have done with the baby or the boat

You sound like quite the expert on the subject Cristo, tell me more.  I've never had to pay for it either way.  I am handsome, charming, witty and tell a good story.  but most importantly, I know how to listen to a woman.  Most men, such as yourself don't have that skill apparently, henceforth the need to conduct a financial transaction if you want some action.  Sad.

I imagine you just jerk off to them. (NTTAWWT)  Is that 'sex'? The norms have changed.  Creepy old man keeps a portfolio of young girls in sexy, pouty poses  on his sailing forum website profile. Probably so his mom won't find it when she cleans his room and checks his computer.  Come on Ed, that's a bit odd

Not to get off topic but..  It looks like they'll have some good weather for the rest of their sailing (self righteous vegan)  journey

Not to get off topic but... 8.4 knots in 10 knots of wind is impressive (if it actually was accurate) for their sailing journey.

I'm glad the very existence of Greta is messing with those who seek to deny that humans are causing the climate to warm, and of course those who have been duped into believing them. 

Greta's voice is clear, strong and rational, inescapable when you read what Greta actually writes (rather than what some plonkers say she does).

Thank you to everyone who rants against Greta, it serves to increase the stance of the majority who support her.

Hope the 'rest of the world' (one country) signs the Paris Climate Agreement soon, good to hear that the US is well on the way to meeting the set objectives, in spite of the stand taken by the Whitehouse...

OFFS Bruce, you embarrass yourself.

Everybody knows about lag and latency and inaccurate data and sync and all sorts of reasons this speed and windspeed are not accurate.

"Thank you to everyone who rants against Greta, it serves to increase the stance of the majority who support her."

Huh? Most people are not even aware she exists. And if you believe this is all innocent 16 year old's doing, then, well, whatever.

No I don't believe that. Though a lot of people make up shit about what other do or think and then criticize them for thinking that.

Assumptive thinking. A bit embarrassing really, for those who have the ability to think and realize that's what hey have done.

Greta has struck a chord in others.

Fitst line we agree on. Yes yuo mentioned accuracy .I poi ted out that same issue. NExt.

I QUOTE you.

Next, I make a statement. And I say "if" to "you believe". You clarified. "No, I dom't believe that." Fine.

So no, I didn't "make up stuff."

Dude, what the fuck?

OK Fastyacht. You seem to have got what you wrote and what I wrote all mixed up. Never mind, I can work it out.

I mentioned accuracy. You mentioned that everyone knows about lag, latency and inaccurate data - crucially you said that everyone knows about them.

Actually, that isn't true.

I have significant experience in the marine trade and base this on direct interactions with boaters. (When on research and development teams, this becomes important when designing the UI, I know this from direct experience, specifically with chartplotters.) Exactly where did you get that "everybody knows" from?

Also, you assume that I meant that you made up stuff. I said that stuff was made up and you posted it. I chose my words carefully in that regard, because I didn't want to assume that you made up all of the ideas you posted (though of course it is possible).

---

Another assumption that some have made (not you Fastyacht, so far as I am aware): that I have no interest in offshore sailing because I sail small one design boats. While I myself have not crossed the Atlantic for example, I have been a part of the shore crew in support of Atlantic crossings.

---

Over to you.

Slight increase in speed, 8.6 knots, wind speed 11 knots.

1140 NM to go, according to the calculations from the boat about 30 mins ago.  It looks like Greta will make COP25 in Madrid. 

I bet she has been writing a new speech.

Changing the subject, the latest information is that global emissions have reached an all time high and are not heading lower. I believe the UN says we need to reduce emissions by 7.5% a year for the next decade at least to make an impact on global warming. Guess what?  That's not going to happen no matter what Greta says.  This process has been in the making for 200 years and the best we can do is to adapt. Try not to freeze, drown or burn to a crisp. 

And if you want to see the "autism spectrum" in action, check out Barron Trump. That kid is way fucked up, just like his dad.

 the big fight the big fight will be between the rapidly-growing developing world and the already established the growing world says will we get to grow to the science says we can't do this anymore the developing world will say we're not going to cut off our noses so what are you got good luck is all I can say

As far as train wrecks go on SA in the non-PA category, I think this one rates a 5 on the modified Beaufort scale.  But like the wind, sometimes things can blow up quickly and there is always the chance it can reach 8 or maybe even higher.  On the other hand, also like seemingly major impending weather events, it might just peter out and fade into nothing.  We'll see what happens.  With the cast of characters currently here anything is possible.

And you delivered in spades my little Lab rat. 

Tell me when it is time to have your thesis challenged and reviewed, who could possibly do this? You obviously have no peers.

Oh yes. Convincing a bunch of people, mainly kids, to deliberately remain ignorant is *such* a useful contribution to society.

At least they'd be more inclined to listen to and believe the bullshit though.
