I bought an old sunfish for $400, we put some

I busted the tiller in a big wind on the cape (cod)
(Scargo lake). Little sail boats are fun.
The salty tar who put the port in (~$100 with
$20 tip.) said I had the old style tiller,
which I could replace for the newer one, for
$1k. I said thank you again for the port,
(which allows me access to inside the hull,
so I can attach nuts to the screws.)

Oh the best thing about little boats is sailing
on the edge of the wind, and if a gust flips
you over.. whee, splash flip it back up.


Even if you're not sailing on the edge,
sailing small boats on inland lakes with
gusty wind can make for lots of fun spills.

It was fun having a sailboat in New Orleans, where it was warm and

I can rent a little Sunfish type thing on Donner Lake with no hassle.

"trashing" and "hating" are strong words which seem tossed about rather
cavalierly nowatimes, to my definition "trashing" would be explicitly
saying a group of people are losers or they suck and "hating" would be
saying one wants to harm or kill them. Neither of which are things I
say. You have some very bad people in that group, but you also have
people that are very fine people.

I never took up motorcycles at all I think mainly because at an early

Do four-wheeled vehicles frighten you half as much?

Motorcycles are great fun, like having a 60 horsepower body. It's a

John Larkin is an example of the class of people I've given up on. I'd be much happier if he got himself some rudimentary education, to the point where he stops persistently posting the same fatuous nonsense and it that sense I want him to stop existing in his current form, and to move on into the class of marginally better people.

I suspect bitrex has much the same attitude.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/my_country,_right_or_wrong

“My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”

John Larkin ought to have been able to recognise the reference. It is certainly neither gibberish or an evasion, but John Larkin's reading does seem to be at the P.G. Wodehouse level of intellectual content. I know he likes Jane Austen too but one has to suspect that he's more fond of the verbal felicities than the savage (if veiled) social satire.

stare down 75 y/o Indians, just kind of let children do that without
hustling them along.

Went to both public and Catholic school in the 1980s and 90s and no
adults would've let us get away with that stuff they would've said "Move

Not a particularly personal-safety conscious thing to do either letting

I'll agree to learn whatever I need to about firearms before supporting
legislation to restrict them if the Right promises to learn about sex
and reproduction prior to supporting legislation involving those topics

Recruiting school age kids to attend a march for life rally is morally dubious. If they aren't old enough to vote, they aren't old enough to exercise mature judgement about issues like "right to life" and using them to boost numbers at a rally is a form of astroturfing.

The kids might not have done anything wrong, but the adults who recruited them aren't exactly blameless.

Idiot. They were there to attend a march for life protest and were
gathering to go home after a little sightseeing when *THEY* were
accosted. They had a perfect right to be there and did absolutely
*NOTHING* wrong.

Recruiting school age kids to attend a march for life rally is morally dubious. If they aren't old enough to vote, they aren't old enough to exercise mature judgement about issues like "right to life" and using them to boost numbers at a rally is a form of astroturfing.

The kids might not have done anything wrong, but the adults who recruited them aren't exactly blameless.

krw is a nutty internet bad-ass who talks tough on the internet but
knows little about the real world outside his home/office.

Having children stand around angry potentially violent adults (the left
is very violent you see!) is a dumb idea and they could've left any time
they wanted, they were hardly being "accosted" and their exit was not
blocked in any way.

Krw would be the same fashion of egomaniac chaperone that get kids hurt
or killed and then thinks he'd explain to their parents "But we had a
perfect right to be there." and they'll be like "oh, okay!" What a maroon.

you can tell exactly who was running that outing it was a bunch of Krws.

Any normal bunch of people would've just walked away and ignored them
but not this pack of egomaniacs and Daddy's money brats, no sir.
