  1. I find that I'm visiting SA less these days.

    The feuds from Scott Tempesta & Mr. Clean are absurd and seems SA is more their podium of self importance than a community of the best sailors in the world intending to grow the sport.

    Meanwhile, there are MANY better sailing websites.

  2. You would have thought that Reid would have "striked when the iron was hot", and got himself a spot on one of the late night talk shows like Dave Letterman. The fact that this much time has gone by means he's "missed the boat" and is now "old news" and won't get the attention that "recent news" could have fostered. It's now "YAWN" & soon to be "That's so last year" to the djiots who might have been interested in Reid's (ahem...) accomplishments. I guess that's the problem when lack of interest = lack of funding for the pop-up book.
  3. Probably not. However, there are limits to JP's PM mailbox, and she's exceeded them (hint). Only 556 miles, Sto Lat? How long is that in MOO years, at current rate? So, what's that come down to? About 1.1 knots SOA. Darsheen could walk that fast. But I wonder if the Anne can break through the Gulf Stream and not get sucked east and end up in Ireland.
  4. Wow, if he could sail he'd be in Beaufort NC in 2 days.
  5. Tammy Wynette wasn't available in the proper resolution for my needs, so I density corrected Tammy the Centerfold and did an alpha-channel vignette to pull off of a rather complex background. I then extended her hair to cover her breasts in just the cheekiest way and retouched the Schooner Anne to provide a location for her to rest her hands. I can't be bothered with context, I'm an artist. But now that you opened the topic, I must say that Cyndi Lauper is still very attractive, perhaps more than in her younger days, she's quite a fine-looking woman, and excellent "material." Regardles
  6. I calculate about 1450 nautical miles to Verrazano Narrows Bridge (straight line distance, which we know is not feasible). Therefore, the target SOG is just over 1 knot. I think that is doable, especially once he picks up the Gulf Stream. So to make one knot with prevailing winds and current, why not just rig a jib sail? Does he have one of those left? I think it's an incredible feat to sail that slow! Amazing. Certainly he's gotta be setting another record with speed like that! Guess he's not eager for beaver... I can't imagine going that slow knowing the throngs of
  7. How many miles to go to the finish? At this point its 1385 hours until the set arrival time. What's that for an estimated average speed needed to arrive at the designated hour?
  8. Ask yourself, "would you trade your accomplishments for what Reid Stowe has accomplished"? Personally I wouldn't even trade my failures for what Reid has done considering how he got there to do it.
  9. Yea, that's the problem; Reid's history... Drug smuggling, drug culture, (continual/present) history of deadbeat dad...
  10. I sorta liked that. It shows just how it really is, unedited. Everyone edits these days, this is real stuff. Yea, real boring, real naive, real ignorant, real unreal of what it's like to actually sail.
  11. Another area that Reid's accomplishment has had no reaction is with his sponsors. I actually went and looked at each of the 1000days sponsors websites after the 1000 day record, and each sponsor did not acknowledge or reference Reid's accomplishment. Even after doing searches within those sponsor websites the result was the same. You would think that in these economic times that if any business thought that celebrating Reid's accomplishment was good for business and associate themselves with Reid's success. Between the media & Reid's sponsors it seems the consensus is unanimous.
  12. & Reid isn't a very cunning linguist either...
  13. +1 Somewhere around the 10th blowjob my girlfriend in high school gave me, she said, "MMMmmm, Slightly Salty... I need another beer" !
  14. Hate to stereotype, but it seems the caste system was acceptable to all (2) parties. Her duties were below where she obviously had accommodated Reid only limited by her ability to stave off pregnancy. Hopefully they won't intentionally maim Darsheen to improve his begging skills. Instead of donating to Reid's non-non-profit, donate to this.
