  1. True enough. unfortunately. I must also admit that I'm not at all sure about the karma involved in naming a carrier after a president who consistently walking down a set of stairs when exiting airplanes.
  2. "Upon completion of the explosive tests, the ship will face "six months of modernization, maintenance, and repairs" before being deployed for operations, the Navy added." Ok, I get that this is the first in class, and thus must be more completely tested before certification and active duty, and that changes can happen while that is going on. Still, the damn thing was only finished in what, 2017? Still has not been activated for service? And now needs what sounds like a couple of years of "modernization"? Plus of course maintenance and repairs. How out of date can it be after just a f
  3. What? The hair doesn't count?
  4. Even if there was a separate men's sailing, the answer would be simple. Title IX, which is a good thing. Plus the fact that there are 85 freaking football scholarships allowed, which is not. So when any div one school in particular drops any men's sport and blames title IX, they are LYING. I'm sorry, but the answer isn't that Title IX forced them to do it. The answer is that there aren't enough athletic directors willing to stand up and question whether football really needs the equivalent of four full teams on scholarship at all times? Wouldn't 50 or 60 be enough? Like it our not, t
  5. LMFAO! Signs, signs, everywhere a sign ...
  6. The catch. The real/original one. Willie Mays, 1954 world series, 8th inning of the first game with the score tied at 2. Vic Wertz clubbed a shot to DEEP center field in the ridiculously cavernous polo grounds with with runners on first and second and no outs. Mays makes the grab over 420 feet from home. Look up the video if you haven't seen it. Mays immediately whirls and fires an on target heave into the infield. The guy on second got to third, but normally would have scored, and the guy on first had no chance to advance. The Indians ultimately failed to score and lost 5-2 in extra inni
  7. One of my all time favorite movies! Almost as funny as Arsenic and Old Lace. Frankly I think Cary grant was Even better opposite Catherine Hepburn than Spencer Tracy. To be fair though, I think Grant is way underrated as an actor since so much of his work was in comedies.
  8. .. is certainly the *not* the prettiest J. Noticed this too late to edit. Ah well.
  9. Wow. Thanks for sharing.
  10. It's great to have you back posting, and I'm all for anything that helps with your focus and mental clarity. Still, speaking as a long time follower of the random pic thread, and having thoroughly enjoyed the many rabbit holes your photo finds have sent me down, please know that we want you healthy more than we want new posts. Like I said, as long as it helps you, I'm all for it, just please don't push too hard. Push just hard enough, if you get my meaning.
  11. We will end up having to agree to disagree on this one. Though I will say that probably the best/fastest ever built (Ranger) is certainly the prettiest J ever. That honor would likely belong to either Endeavour or Valsheda. At least among the ones I have seen the most pictures of. I will say I like the smaller meter class boats better than the 12's, generally speaking.
  12. Meter boats are indeed very very pretty. J class boats, OTOH, are gorgeous.
  13. Fan-Fucking-Tastic! It helps the mental aspect so much when you trust the team around you during recovery, which can make a huge difference in how quickly the physical aspect comes along.
  14. That's good to hear! I hope they continue to follow through. Get well!
