  1. I vote for not duct taping me to a chair and lighting me on fire. That means you cliffy. i'm going to epoxy your ass to a chair at the kiddie's table........... video or it never happened... I was there. Actually I helped put him out with my shoe. It happened, but I would like to see the picture anyway. I think that one of the guys present took photos during the ordeal but they were of unusable quality.
  2. I sense a new holiday tradition.
  3. Twas the night before Ex-Mas, and all over SA... not a poster was stirring... not even JT. The sockpuppets all hung up and logged out of with care... in hopes that the mods wouldn't ban them this year. The newbies were nestled all snug in their beds... while "fuck off! and show us your tits!" danced in their heads.... Finish it.
  4. His spelling does in fact remind me of a certain someone:
  5. Always look on the bright side of life...
  6. Campus is DEAD this weekend. Everybody who put off studying is actively freaking out and barracading themselves in the library in preparation for exams which begin monday. Last night was the last hurrah for the semester. I'm finishing up my final projects this afternoon and enjoying myself this weekend.
  7. Ware dowe voete?? I vote you guys burn him in the front yard. Post pictures as a warning to others. Crucifixion seems more appropriate given the season and all. And if the hose doesnt reach we can piss on him and call it art. Don't forget to wear something to keep your head warm! It can get cold at night!!
  8. Expo is decking the halls (while petey's shaving his balls) for the Ex-Mas party tomorrow night. Who's showing up? I figured I would make a guest appearance to brighten up all of your holiday seasons. On another note, it's a shame we haven't had much snow or ice so far this december. Without an incompetent landscaping company to provide us entertainment by breaking Pitmans ankle we are going to have to figure out another way to keep ourselves entertained. I vote for not duct taping me to a chair and lighting me on fire. That means you cliffy.
  9. BJ Never said anything. I got that from snaggy when I asked him point blank if he was a sock puppet. The answer was unequivocally no.
  10. I assure you all, Snaggy is not a sock puppet and he is happy to be recognized as his own entity. I would imagine he will never out himself unless he himself wants to and in that case he will likely do it in a person by person basis.
  11. Gouv, take that shit to Smut Anarchy will 'ya? Geez...... I believe that would be called choking a chubby...
  12. Much like Zorro, The Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Chuck Norris or Santa Claus the true identify of Snaggletooth, while known to some, should never be publicly revealed and death to those that do.
  13. My assumption is Snaggy is a 105'er. I was also out sailing at MBFS and didn't hear anyone overtly misspelling. If you pay close attention to his posts he actually told us what boat he sails on (not directly but with obvious clues) way back in the spring of 2010.
  14. Snaggletooth is indeed his own entity and empirical data exists to that fact. He is NOT a sock puppet. Footlong, though I suspected him for a long time, is not Snaggletooth (though he knows who snaggy is and won't tell me or us!).
  15. Snaggletooth and I made many plans to get together for brews this past season, all of which he flaked out on... much to my personal insult
  16. Glad you chimed in buddy, how's the family doing? You were there with me when we were playing around with using the jib as a staysail during the reach out on the around block race this past may. Do you recall any of the numbers we were seeing for wind angle and windspeed? I know we were going crazy fast on a fairly tight reach but I can't remember the details. I ask because that felt like the upper range of angle we could take the combination of A 1/3 and jib-as-staysail.
  17. Agreed, the downwind portion also got me thinking.........anyone try to roll out the jib to get her planing more easily? The pole seems to be long enough where this would be effective. In testing there are boats which have found this to be an effective technique. I can't recall the specific numbers offhand but it's been seen that the jib unrolled (and led outboard to the rail ideally) has helped downwind and reaching performance.
  18. Right on. You are correct and more than anything this is why some boats are going with the bobstay. There's also significant "in" force on the end of the pole from a fully loaded up zero that needs to be contended with.
  19. Welcome Back!!! I MISSED YOU GEORGE!!!!!!!! -InNeedOfSomeRestraint
  20. Pole deflection Also seen on Invisible Hand in SF Bay. Hermetic/Ragbag... did Andiamo/Invisible Hand ever go with a bobstay of sorts?
  21. Whippy pole? Really? I fly my code 0 off the pole, tensioned up to run up to about 12 knots so far without any significant bending. From my perspective it has been anything but. Can't imagine, Polaris, the pole snapping, nor has there been any evidence of any such issues I've heard of. Does your pole deflect in any direction in a noticeable way? I'm not talking about it snapping so much as I am about controlling the motion of the pole tip so that as much of the force from the sail goes into forward momentum as possible. Also a purpose of a bobstay on the pole is so that, when flying
