Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Well you have to admit, this question has evoked a lot of responses. From From "Commodores" of the local yacht club, to old hippies at heart, and everyone in between. I personally don't get my shorts in a knot about what people fly or don't fly as long as proper protocols are observed for national flags and such. It's the veteran in me I guess.

As far as rum goes, Mount Gay is a fine rum as is Appleton Estates but my personal favourite has to be Black Seal from Bermuda.

s/v Talisman

btw, just sailed her over to the marine storage to be put on the hard... end of season up here in the Great White North. :-(

Mount Gay is more a memory from my trip to Barbados.. I haven't experimented much with rum.

Me either. The boat right next to me, flies one 24/7. I don't insist, nor suggest, he remove it. I do think it's lame.

The classic defense from those that do not find it lame, is to try to make more of the objection than there really is.

So, for giggles, I looked up the official definition of lame. In this context, it is "unconvincingly feeble". Two different sources.

Let's start with feeble... that is defined, again in this context, as "lacking strength of character". However, lame is qualified as doing so "unconvincingly". Hilarious.

I would say that flying a pirate flag is unconvincingly displaying a lack of strength of character. Confusing, makes no sense, wondering why one would try to make such a statement? IOW, one is trying to say they lack character, when they don't? Exactly. Lame.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

I never personally let my shorts get in a bunch.

I let them fly free... keeps the old bones comfy

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Maybe Titus isn't lame, as he/she is more convincingly feeble.

But flying pirate flags remains lame.
