Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Doesn't a new contributor have to have a minimum of 10 posts before he/she gets to start disparaging Smacky?

No, it's 10 posts disparaging SmackO before you can add links and Pictures?

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I just have to say this, because no one else has--

sailor is definately a noun, not a verb.

sailing is also a noun.

I think you have to have 10 posts before you can begin photo shopping photos of him. You can put funny facial hair and glasses on him after 10 posts, after 15 posts you can give him funny teeth but I believe it takes 25 posts before you can put a dress on him and other gender changing things.

But disparaging is encouraged after your first post!

while flouting the rules of grammar, presumably.

I was going to point that out, thanks for playing grammar police. Sailing can also be a verb of course.

When you traverse the seas of inequity, with nothing but a fine tuned edge of a wind foil to cleave a path, remember not to cry wolf, because you lack the fortitude to put on sea boots and steer the course.!! You can break a leg when exiting your comfy bed!!!!
If I was in your position, I would write some coherent and cogent arguments, explaining why I was in the right and behaved appropriately, backed up with facts.

The fact that you instead used the opportunity to post some utterly incoherent rants speaks volumes. I think we've all come to our own conclusions here.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

This is a fascinating thread, I'm so glad "Jane" could chime in and authenticate the high level of crazy that was present from all parties.

I think "Jake" might be a member of The Yes Men, a political media prank group:
This would explain why he had a videographer around. If I were doing something cool like the Transpac and I knew a bunch of media people I would definitely have one or two show up to film me.
