  1. There's even some cheese in that gift if you shake it up just right.
  2. IF they really are as far offshore as they claim, the risk of sharks is pretty damned small. While sharks might follow a boat for days if it's dropping off fish carcasses, I can't think of anything appealing coming from the Cheese Scow that they'd be interested in. Sprout-flavored feces just can't be that appetizing. I'm guessing Reid will really need to scrape again in around three days, and every three days after that. Maybe then they'll break the imaginary 2-knot barrier.
  3. Having been the skipper of a 100 year-old wooden schooner with shitty bottom paint and no budget in Equatorial waters, I can easily tell you how long it takes. Forever. Seriously. And those little bastard crabs that somehow always make it to your ear canal to hide are really annoying.
  4. Tristan Jones will stand by on an ethereal ship built of balsa.
  5. Shit, you should have seen my law school loans. [Cue Darth Vader's voice] You cannot begin to imagine... The 75$ in filing fees and service of process that I'd have to pay to answer your complaint and then have it thrown out of court would simply break me. Damn, I'd better stop fucking with Cap'n Crunch and the Void Ho. I hope you realize that every time one of you psychopaths gets on here in defense of this scammer, we add our annoyance at you towards them. If you hadn't gone after Suzanna so hard, this thread would be half as long as it is, at least until Cap'n Crunch calls for he
  6. [Raises hand at the back of the room] PICK ME! PICK ME! This is too fucking hilarious! Hey, don't forget to send an e-mail to Tempesta. He cannot wait to hear from you, I'm sure. Editor@sailinganarchy.com.
  7. If any of you want a fairly coherent, yet extremely dry summary of law on parody, here ya go (lawyer-written): http://www.publaw.com/parody.html For an even drier view of the law of the land on parody and fair use, check here (judge-written): http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/comm/free...h/campbell.html For a great story of a guy who went head-to-head with a massive company and won, check out www.taubmansucks.com. And here's how Viacom got their asses spanked for going after Youtube about parody videos: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20070423/114529.shtml Anyway, just helping
  8. Just wait until Wired, the New York Times, Outside, and whomever else is properly notified that they've all been duped. Editors hate that shit. Word's a-spreadin' fast, now. But...oh no! An internet legal threat is going to derail all this...oh no!
  9. Story of the year on the internet. God I hope I have the motivation to write a nice 4000 word piece on this for Outside or another high-paying mag. This shit is gold.
  10. I really want Reid Stowe to come back for depositions. Holy crap, I'm laughing tears just thinking about that one! Jesse, or whatever Moonie psycho you are, please sue the Ed. It would make my year.
  11. This is getting good again. Legal threats always have a way of picking up the fun factor.
  12. The lack of a warm welcome for you is due to the fact that this community is pretty intolerant of non-sailors. Your comments made it clear that you are not a sailor, so res ipsa loquitur.
  13. If you listen to this show, pay special attention to the fact that Soanya is out of her 12 year-old gourd, and that Reid sounds like Mr. Rogers. Crazy...
  14. I've missed some of this thread while off racing, so apologies if this has already been linked - it's some kind of public access TV show with Reid & Soanya. http://videos.whiteblox.com/gnb/eventDetai...?event_id=11480
  15. Someone needs to point them to the Bullimore thread. How far are they from Hobart?
  16. And possibly two of the most famous Darwin Award recipients of all time: Cap'n Crunch and the Void Ho. Vamos a ver...
  17. If I could be one tenth the writer he is, I'll be a happy man. On it!
  18. Now that's some shit that a big magazine will be interested in. Fucking gold!
  19. Ummm... I'm quite sure that we will. Someone will definitely go to sea in a hunk of shit to escape the law and fuck young women again. Hell, there's even likely to be a sucker or 10 who foot his bill. It's been happening for hundreds of years.
  20. Suzanne - What state is looking for Reid about child support?
  21. I understand your point, and I agree that the author of the article is poking fun - note the use of the word "scrappy" which is a great editorial trick for calling something crappy. Problem is, the author failed to research the stuff most important to the article - the stuff which gives Reid credibility to the unknowing. I'm not saying it's bad writing - just bad research. Clearly, Wired didn't mind, and I understand that they pay something like a buck a word to freelancers, so good on her.
  22. Comment added to that retarded story...
  23. I'll thank an SA'er for turning me onto this thread. We've given the Doc more than ample opportunity to talk about her gig, and to join the community. She'd prefer to watch, and complain from afar. I went to her stupid one-woman show after trading e-mails with her, and she didn't have the courtesy to give me a five minute interview about sailing.
  24. Yes, it's exactly like that. Sailors on an internet board calling someone names is just like that pesky government-taking-away-your-rights thing.
