  1. I had a great year. While you cowered at home, I had been exposed in probably Feb - no symptoms and once I had the antibody test, lived my best life. Also vaccinated early too, because why not be safe. But I didn’t lose a year of my 50s hiding at home.
  2. Is Jack back to quoting himself again yet? Hey Wacko Jacko - when you were in the Ed’s timeout jail, did they butt rape you?
  3. Except that no one really cares about hockey here
  4. Absolutely not. Why would I read some stupid Australian rag? Did you twats invent any vaccines? No? Then stf on vaccines and quietly wait your turn to get shots, once the industrialized world has had their go at it.
  5. It’s a boat project , so bound to take longer than expected and require 2 trips to West marine for simple parts that will later be found on board the whole time. Then you will break something and have to start over.
  6. You could also get struck by lightning, but yet we still go outdoors... Relative risk is vanishingly small, the vaccines work and you idiots who hype the threat of breakout infections only give more fodder to the anti-vax idiots.
  7. Well, since I am ahead... being proved right and all... One thing that really annoys me is how the ORR-EZ likes to talk about how corrected “spreads” are very close, as if that somehow validates the VPP. How fucking stupid is that? So a Melges 32 with all new sails, mostly pro crew, dry sailed, running Expedition and nailiing their start SHOULD correct close to Jim’s Beneteau 361, with all his cruising gear on board, bagged out sails, never dived, a blank look on the face when you say “polars”, and a full 3 minutes late to the start? If they’re correcting in ghe same hour t
  8. So you agree, ORR-EZ uses “simulated” offset files, not the actual offsets / 3d models? What is the validation for this approximation? If it were a box rule, then primary dimensions might make sense, but I (and others) skeptical are that the VPP is as accurate and valid as ORC using actual hull models.
  9. Except that ORR-EZ will use completely fake numbers, when it doesn’t have the actual offset files for the boat. So the rater basically takes another hull where you do have the offset, and then tweaks some constants, and declares it scientifically valid. oh yeah, and with no measurements of sails, foils, or weights... there’s a huge fudge factor across the fleet. It’s fine and good, but not clear that it’s any more scientific than PHRF.
  10. No offense but if an olympic medalist is only beating you by 12 sec, doesn’t this suggest that rating a multi vs a displacement boat doesn’t work well?
  11. About fucking time! Has anyone identified his sock yet?
  12. Seriously what is everyone bitching about anyway. Wash the sand out of your viginas.
