Wheres the fun and adventure in that? I bet it happens with a push of a button too. Like those electronic furling mast thingys.

I always thought Portugese cuisine was a bit off... are you normally in the habit of eating feces??? If not, how do you know what they taste like???

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.
