back in my teens and early twenties( a time that coincided with a lot of my offshore sailing) I got a lot of crap for trying to rediscover myself...

I used to play the whole philosophical card and religous wordly guy and basically those older than me told me to do one of 2 things:

1. go screw myself
2. do it, but stop talking about it!

dont know what happened or the processes that got me to where I am, dont know if its better, I think spiritually Im poorer, however I have a dose of realism and sageness that I didnt have before, cause thats what life TEACHES you...

so who knows really...

In the end I couldnt agree more...I need more sailing less chit chat...

peace guys

Are you waiting for Godot?

I can read no further but I gots to say that a 25 yr old ain't gonna know what waiting for Godot is all about.

I avoid Sailnet for years on end because of these kinds of posts.

How can so many you put up with this crap so politely?

WTF!!!!!!!???????

He said one night stands but he meant one hand stands.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

tg, the title pretty much summed it up. You could have ignored it and saved yourself however much time it took you to read it. Since most of your posts are only complaining about SailNet posts, perhaps this isn't the right forum for you.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

why does everyone have to re-discover


I'm still looking for the first discover... I'm Chris Columbus looking for my soul ;-)

Hope I can trade for spices or spicy

Perhaps, Donna, perhaps. This is your second similar comment even though I understood your point the first time. Is Sailnet just for head-nodders? Are critical views not allowed? Is everyone equal but some are more equal? I say again: "How can so many you put up with this crap so politely?"

In these halcyon times of trophies for showing up with a good attitude, and calling Social Services on your parents, I am one of the last bastion of folk who think people should be responsible for what they do and say.

When I see or hear BS, I call it. The ignore argument works both ways.

Re: Rediscovering one's "Self"

If I could be 25 again, I would drop Thoreau overboard and focus on the one night stands as much as possible.

Certainly critical views are allowed. Even boorish views. But come on. Certainly you have something positive to offer? When you keep saying "This is why I left SailNet" I just wonder why you stick around. Evidently it's just to be contrary and condescending without offering anything to help your fellow sailor, which is the point of this place.

Wow. Is this your idea of "leaving your ego at the door"? I've come across many people on this forum and in real life who think the same. You are not The Most Interesting Person.

And yes. When you start off with an attitude, I kinda can't ignore you as it's my job around here to make sure that attitude doesn't get out of hand. If all you want to do is mock people and start arguments we have forums set aside for that. Take it there.
