philosopher's club, anyone?

so there's been a sailors fight club. big deal. this is a chance for a thread that really separates the men from the boys. people get tiffed when morally/socially important stuff is brought up in mundane threads, so i thought it might be good for a thread to talk about the important issues without waking anyone up.

an example might be what it means to be a privileged cruiser in a third world country. or the death of someone at sea. gender roles and sailing.

what about it? seems to me we could use a little highbrow stuff for a change

brevity is the soul of wit, and since the point isn't to be witty but to talk intelligently, longer posts should be encouraged - have something to say and take the space you need to say it.

note that this post is a discussion of the thread not the thread itself. if there is interest, we should start a different thread, simply labeled philosopher's club. if that's too confusing you probably clicked on this link by mistake.
