Does the Stella Artois flag have anything to do with the excellent acrobatic skills of that sea lion?

Our personal story with trolls is as follows:

On a trip in 2005 to Alaska, we were anchored in Fitzgibbons inlet, at the top of the Behm canal. This is a very isolated spot and we haven't seen any other human for days. About 04h00 am we heard a scratching noise on the hull immediately beside where my wife's head was on the pillow. Then slamming, more scratching and more slamming, on and on and on. We realized it was probably a seal (we saw many earlier that day), but the fact that this commotion is going on two inches from your head is quite deleterious to further sleep! We never saw anything.

However, I'm now wondering whether the morphions (or whatever Giu called them again) are also indigenous to Alaskan waters??

Absolutely, but with the cold water, shrinkage renders them to nothing more than a nuisance.

Like'd the post thus far.

I saw someone with similar issues... He was refered to me by the police. they had told him we could give him medicine which would be undetectable to humans but would make him invisible to the 'animals' attacking him.
It worked, he takes his meds and the animals leave him alone, also works for voices no one else can hear, space aliens, ghosts...

yet to cure mother in-laws or ex wives

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
