He should reef and kiss it goodbye.

And the caption should be: "Sea, no place for the inexperience."

No, the caption should say: So much for the experience, it is not enough, Captain.

Hardly, it is just a lousy photoshopped image.

Look at it carefully. The smooth calm water on one side and the hell gate on the other, the artificial rain drops, the near symmetrical breakers. The lighting and shadow in the image were all wrong; no photographer can escape the law of physics when capturing any images.

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.
