Boasun My hit list: Practical Jokers, Religous Zealots, Grumpy bitter people, not necessary in that order. slackers can be started with a rope Bo'suns have been carrying rope starters from the first days of sail.
I left snotty teenagers off because if you shoot the puppy every time it makes a mistake you will never have a trained dog. That applies to snotty teenagers also... They may surpise you and become responsible adults.
I left off spouses also, it is your purgatory for marrying them.

My personality is what it is. I learn from this place, I offer what little knowledge I have or have learned to this place, and I share my sense of humor (be it sometimes different than others no doubt) in this place. Also, I am not a boy. I can assure you of that sir.

I've only watched the 1st episode its definitely a different show, he basically cant control his "desires" but instead of killing innocents, he channels his focus on the less desirable members of society.

Ahhh, a classic philosophical riddle that raises the question of observation and knowledge, if someone was killed in the middle of the ocean and no one is around to see it................

Kinda like the tree in the forest

Boasun And after you have been buried at sea and thousands of years later... Just think! Some anthropologist will find your fossilized bones amongst all of those fish bones and think he/she found the very first human.

It is not a pleasent subject to consider but one that should be discussed at some point in passage planning, particularly among couples.

Ugh, I had been thinking about this earlier this week. My wife and I are pushing 60. What if one of us has a heart attack, and happen to be a fair distance from any port...what would you do? It is not something one plans for when cruising, but imagine that moment. What is the "proper way" to bury a loved one at sea? I have joked with my wife, saying "just dump me overboard an feed the fishes". She does not find that amusing, of course. But it is something to consider, along with MOB, calling for rescue, and all the other possible things that might come along unexpectedly.
