Not really, just a bunch of guys....... oh, wait......

Never mind.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: "We need to fluff the spinnaker"

The truth is, most of us guys, kind of quit growing up mentally, at about 12. We just try to hide it most of the time.
