Would you explain this? I googled it and didn't find anything about humans drinking antifreeze. Just curious.

Might the equivalent of being thirsty and drinking seawater.

Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄

That dilemma is part of severe alcoholism. Unless you personally can face that dilemma you can't understand it. Northern culture is fraught with those choices ,. When the booze runs out ,face the dilemma again.The kids can't afford alcohol so sniff gasoline from the skidoos. Many of the female sniffers are pregnant and bear brain dead or severely affected babies, They mostly don't 'live to adolescence. (not so bad now that the lead is gone) The government subsidizes transport of whiskey NTCL. but not milk so guess where the welfare check goes. Bonus for Seagrams and Labatts. I think most of our opiod crisis is similar. Anything to numb the pain, consequences be dammed. Pain is subjective .Does it matter if real or just in your head.

It was not, so I assume Crowhurst developed the system. Surprisingly it isn't in every book about celestial navigation, but even now almost no one knows of this method. Go figure!
Too bad he wasn't sailing in 1567, 1598 or 1714. Perhaps he would have won the prize and had a different place in history!
So are you going to share the formula with the rest of the tribe?

Who does celestial these days; I didn't think anyone cared.
Anyway, take around 20 shots beginning around 20 minutes before local apparent noon until 20 after lan, then throw out the high and low ones. Average the rest and you have a line for longitude and the time of noon, for latitude, which you then plot on your maneuvering board. Unless one is exactly on the equator, it's actually a lot less mistake prone than advancing/retarding several LOP's to get a fix.
Then go back to bed and catch a few more zzzzz's until either dinner or your watch.

Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄

I sailed across from Gib back in '67...'68 .Used similar method .was good until the longitude of Barbados. No sunsight for days .Taff rail log said it's right here.My hand held radio said either left or right??? Ended up Tobago. Crowhurst was in the area but he wasn't going anywhere and we missed him.

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

Lots of negative statements on the campaign page, but difficult to report it as fraudulent. It will die on its own soon enough.
