So, how long until we see sonar ping style "whale defence" systems?

Methinks yon contributer to L38 has had a humour bypass Smack. What a tosser.

Hey, maybe he/she (?) is one of of the dreaded Scully of StuffUp's disgruntled minions ?

No kidding. He should at least be able to tell quips from sigs. To quote said chump..."Whaaaaaaaa?!!!!!!!!"

The only good part was the C27 hammering away at the fleet. Right on!

PS - I was actually just jealous he didn't use my Steve Buscemi joke. He missed a diamond there.

Seems to me he couldn't tell his arse from a hole in the ground......


I did like the fact the L38 scribe managed to keep Still's spelling error. Wow, do we have command of Copy Paste function or what ?


Oh well, this thread was largely a heap of silliness and if others cannot see that , well, its not really our problem is it ?

Now, Smackdaddy, what languages do you speak? I entered the Japanese characters into a free online translation service, and the free translation said "sailboat"!

Heh-heh. Oh, you caught that.

I can say "wasabi" and "konichiwa". Does that count?

Haiku young padawan.

(PS - Be careful everyone...we might all get misquoted by some lazy "journalist" that has spell-check disabled.)

I was on the 3 am to 7 am watch, years ago, on the way back from Hawaii. My watchmate was below making coffee or sleeping or something, I was all alone. It was warm, we were about 700 miles NNE of Hawaii, heading around the Pacific High before turning for Portland. About 5 am or so, there was some light, I was sitting there with my hand on the tiller, no autopilot, with my back to the port rail, on a starboard tack. I was so relaxed and peaceful and content and happy. All of a sudden there was an enormous wooooosssshhhing sound, so loud and close and, well, very scary, as there was nothing behind me except empty ocean, eh? I teleported across the cockpit, across the boat to the safety of the starboard rail, in less than a nanosecond. Looking back, there was nothing but empty ocean, no giant sea monster, no tentacles, no teeth. I carefully came back and looked down and found myself staring right straight down into a really really stinky blow hole. The whale was about the same size as the boat, maybe 35 feet long or so, and was just holding place with his blow hole very very close to where I had been sitting, maybe just 4 or 5 feet away. After a couple of more heartbeats and breaths he flipped his tail gently, accelerated a bit, and dove and was gone.
