My friends, if there's anything that I've demonstrated over the course of time, it's that I'm here for you. Tell me your troubles. I'm almost positive I can help.

One note to pass along ... forumite Harry Miller has indirectly requested the end of mensa-type questions. He thinks you're a bunch of posers.

Why are shrouds called shrouds and not port and starboard stays?

Should I go sailing this weekend even though the boat is not registered yet? or just go with the canoe?

Question No. 1 ... in response, I ask you ... why is a halyard a halyard, and not an uphaul?

Of the three questions, I like the second one best. I think you have to decide if the penalty is worth the so-called crime. It reminds me of the day that I launched my boat, Big Food. My license plate was expired and the ramp was a good four miles away. Right before we left, my dad said, hey, your plate is expired ... you might get a ticket.

I responded that if I got a ticket, that I'd pay up, then go launch the boat regardless. I knew the penalty, and was willing to take the chance.

I think this represents a larger question we deal with daily in life. For more information, see the thread in which Pless burned his girlfriend's yoga pants without her knowledge.

Personally, I would go sailing. Your call.

Question No. 3 ... canoes are nice.

Harv!

Are you or are you not a member of Boat Mensa International? I suspect that John Watkins may also be a member.

That said, I know that a duckboard is a plank laid across a muddy field to serve as a walkway. And I've also heard of them used in above the sole in a marine shower. A "duckboard" as a cabin (companionway?) covering board is new to me. This is what happens when you ask an open boater about cabins and "billboards."

Most moments we are alive are forgotten over time, except for either the really good ones or the really bad ones. If you stay at work, your day will very likely continue down a mediocre path. You'll probably forget today. Sailing is very likely the best way to remember today.

It'll be even sweeter if they do rat you out. Losers.

Worth a shot, if only to listen to their general discontent at being left out of all of our fun and games.


If you were going to build a wooden hydro to tow behind your bike, would it be Atlas Van Lines, Miss Bud, or Oh Boy Oberto?

Are those really the only three choices left? Doesn't Remo Borrachini's Bakery have a boat? If not, why not?

I guess I'd go with Oh Boy Oberto, if only because I like their sign on Rainier.


Can I use my regular salted butter in recipes that call for unsalted butter?

No. Recipes can be a fine balance, and if there is already the correct amount of salt represented in the recipe by other items, then your salted butter is going to destroy everything. At least, that's what my old know it all girlfriend used to tell me.

Ah hell, use the salted butter.


Which is wetter? damp or moist?

Damp, by a lot.

I should like to know when i make My PPand J is it proper etiquette to use a spoon to take the peanut butter out of the jar then transferring said spoon to jelly jar thus inserting peanut butter into jelly still existing in jelly jar thus spoiling the Jelly jar for people that just want pure unsoiled jelly?.
There seems to be a bit of controversy here as my wife desires un soiled Jell and harshly accuses me of a most severe Breach of etiquette..I dare not admit i lick the spoon not wanting to wait till the PPand J is completed but i spect she watches so caution is recommended if shes about!

Skippy's creamy is The Peanut butter used so no chunks are lurking in the jelly if that makes a difference..

I read a while back that conflict between parties can be a good thing ... in fact, it means that one or both sides seeks resolution. From here on out, you might consider thinking of your wife's complaining as a positive development. Through conflict, she seeks peace.

I guess you'll need to decide what is more important: licking a spoon or peace.

Good to see you're still alive.

So, I'm not big into the dairy products, but I always thought sour cream stayed decent for quite a while. Apparently, it's not really gone bad until mold arrives. Then it is bad.

Did Elena Kagan effectively remove herself from the running with an extremely poorly researched position on animal cruelty?

Who?

This reminds me of an interview I had at a biotech research lab last fall. During the tour, the fellow who I was talking to quietly said that downstairs is where we keep the small animals that "participate" in the research.

That gave me a funny feeling in my gut, and I suddenly didn't want to work there.

Still building this one, but when I do, it will likely be another traditional lapstrake. There are so many things about building a small boat that I'd like another crack at, if only to do them better.

Personally, I don't care what Tylerdurden is up to. Worrying about that internet fool is a complete waste of time. However, I hope that Mark is living a healthy, happy life full of optimism and grace.

Now, about cell phones ...

I remember my first cell phone. Shortly after I got it, I dropped it into a vat of sweet brown curry. I had that phone for four years. Loved how it smelled.

Sadly, short of actually washing your work clothes once in a while, I think you may have purchased the wrong phone. You obviously need a tougher phone. I think you're a candidate for the Sonim, which can be both dunked underwater and hit with a hammer.

Dear Sir.

Thank you.

I think this calls for a Flip video experiment. Short of getting into the fridge, this would be one good way to confirm this suspicion.

As far as the freezer, isn't this an energy efficiency question? Wouldn't a light in the freezer create heat ... and that would make things melt? We'll have to turn to our WBF Mensa Board here on exactly how much more energy it takes to keep things One Degree Celsius colder, but I'd think it would be much easier to cool things back to nominal in the fridge than in the freezer.

I don't think the answer is because a light bulb wouldn't work in the freezer. I've worked places with walk-in freezers, and they had light switches on the inside of the freezer so you could flip the light on and off.

I bet there are government safety standards that guide this. If not, I think there should be at least some sort of override light switch on the inside. Say you got locked in there ... I think to be cold without light would pretty much suck all the hope out of me. But to have a bit of light, then that might keep me going for a bit longer.

This is a lot like the race for most home runs, a record that Ken Griffey Jr. probably would have smashed if not for his absolute lack of off-season training regiment. I mean, have you seen how chubby he is lately? He's like a late career Kevin Mitchell. In this case, the truly talented got snuffed out early.

Here at the WBF, whoever has been banned the most is doubtfully the most irritating forumite. That's because a lot of you, like you, get banned now and again and yet get to come back. You're really not all that irritating, just a little edgy now and again. The truly talented only get banned once or twice, then it's over.

I'm sorry my brother, but you and the other boys who get banned now and again (see: Blight, especially) are lightweights in the Annals of Banishment. Move on. Find solace elsewhere. It's a useless statistic.

Did I ever tell you about my first girlfriend? I was in the 8th grade, and she was in the 7th. We met on the bus, and she was awful cute. (She was also my first kiss. We were on a couch in her friend's basement. I remember it like it happened five minutes ago.) We only dated for a month or so, but I still remember that she was probably one of the funkier, more creative girls I've ever dated.

Anyways, a few years ago I was at a friend's place watching the teevee when a music awards show came on, and yup, there she was, a backup singer in a somewhat famous band. I hadn't seen her in 20+ years, but searching online confirmed my suspicion.

Here she is ... Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters.

http://www.smh.com.au/ffximage/2006/09/15/scissorsisters_narrowweb__300x312,0.jpg

Scissor Sisters, of course, is another term for lesbian sex, of sorts. Cuntsplice reminded me of this story.

And now, here's a definition of cuntsplice.


cut splice (originally called cunt splice) - A splice similar to the eye splice. It is typically used for light lines (e.g., the log-line) where a single splice would tend to come undone, the rope being frequently wet.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rope_splicing#cite_note-falconer-0) It makes a very strong knot. A cut splice is a join between two ropes, made by side splicing the ends slightly apart, to make an eye in the joined rope which lies shut when the rope is taut. Its original name was bowdlerised (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Bowdler) to "cut splice".
Huh. I lived in Sebastian for a couple myownself.


So... Why are Republicans the way they are? And what can we do to make them stop?

Quit giving them money.

Right over left when I'm in a nice rhythm. Neither when I'm freaked out. Then my form disappears and I become a system of torque versus a system of efficiency.

StevenJack ... um, I mean Steven, you'll meet more people if you leave the house:p
Eggs- usually fried
Chops- usually fried or country fried(battered and deep fried), can be grilled
Sides- grits, shrimp 'n grits, home fries.
I've seen people have fatback as a side but that is usually a dinner(lunch to you) or supper side.

It should be noted that in the south mac 'n cheese, tater salad and macaroni salad are vegetables. 'Nanner Puddin' can be served as a vegetable or a dessert. To be a dessert it must have Nilla Wafers. As a vegetable it's not required.
Come down sometime and we'll go to Big E's. You can get the buffet or a meat 'n three.
