In Topic: SA Irrational hatred of Paul Cayard, anyone know why?

09 December 2013 - 02:14 PM

The solution is really quite simple: Ed had the hots for Danica P... but Paul C white-anted him and knobbed her first.(Septics look up white-ant in the Urban Dictionary)

 

OK, as part of a quest to improve my vocabulary, I bit but the Urban Dictionary has no definition for white-anted. http://www.urbandict...term=whiteanted

 

Is there another source a "septic" may search?

The waves that roll into marquette from a good N or NW blow are fun to watch. When they get into the 20+ range they're almost hard to see unless you have a good vantage point and some sort of reference. They're just so huge and spaced out they look nothing like the normal chop you see on the lakes. Giant cords rolling across the horizon a football field apart. Freakin awesome. I went out sailing in the remnants of these waves after a gale blew itself out. Once I got out a couple miles from the harbor i started finding an 8-10ft swell. Boat would start climbing for a bit, then you'd go down into a trough, work your way back out. It was alot of fun. Probably a little less so when they're twice as high and you're dealing with a 50kt breeze.


That's interesting. I've also been in similar 40-50ish sustained storms in the central gulf and in the more open waters east of the Bahamas (basically the pineapple cup route). In the gulf, because of the current, steep and choppy, in the open ocean east of the bahamas, it is veeeery long period waves, taller, but much less steep as they are at least 300-400ft crest to creast....

 


Baby waves..........I was in 60 footers back in '92 with snow squalls to go with the 50 knot winds........not scary at all.............granted I was on the Saratoga at the time, in Nato fleet exercises, but what the hell, its still water. Fun to watch an Aegis Cruiser play submarine trying to keep up.

I realize this post is a few years old, but you weren't on the Saratoga in '92. The Sara sank at the Bikini Atoll in 1946. So in addition to being an asshole, you are also a liar.

 

Liar is an ugly word and should only be used when one is absolutely sure of one's self.  A quick Google of USS Saratoga would give you this:

 

USS Saratoga (CV/CVA/CVB-60), was one of four Forrestal- class supercarriers built for the US Navy in the 1950s. Saratoga was the sixth US Navy ship, and the second aircraft carrier, to be named for the Battle of Saratoga in the American Revolutionary War.

Commissioned in 1956, she spent most of her career in the Mediterranean, but also participated in the Vietnam WarSaratoga received one battle star for service in the Vietnam War. One of her last operational duties was to participate in Operation Desert Storm.

Saratoga was decommissioned in 1994, and is currently stored in Newport, Rhode Island. Multiple unsuccessful attempts have been made to preserve her as a museum ship, and she is currently slated for disposal.

Don't be a tool.  Apologize.

It's a really fun boat for the price point. That's pretty much the long and short of it.

 

Actually the long and short of it will be whether and where the boat gets one-design traction.  Without a couple of good, competitive fleets to start a class, it will become another orphan design in a very crowded space.  


In Topic: so fucking tired of your dan meyers bullshit

Will Dawg sue Scott and SA

Will Dan Meyers fund Dawg's litigation

Will Scott seek further legal defence fund contributions

Will Scott sue Dawg for calling him a grifter

Will concerned Anarchists fund Dawg's defence

 

Ah the possibilities are endless.

 

 

That would be interesting if myers backed dawg

 

Couldn't Dawg be called as a corroborative witness?

Perhaps in the damages phase but he probably has nothing relevant to say on liability which will likely turn on whether the statements were true when made.

so this has been dragging on.  When is the trial date and will it be live blogged?

 

Maybe in the interim SA will post all the pleadings and discovery materials -- affidavits, declarations, deposition transcripts, etc.  

 

That would provide real entertainment value now that sailing season is over.
