  1. Re: Update on the new Americas cup class boats.

    Well, I will be sure to tell them, and I'm sure they will scrap the whole concept. Good to see the forum has not changed.
  2. Re: Trump's Skill at Communicating (Yes, really)

    From up here in Canada, I can easily say popcorn sales are strong. Watching the Trump Presidency is like a marathon horror movie matinee.

    Re: 5200 bottom ???

    We should back up a tad. First, a CC runabout, or any runabout with a plywood inner skin and plank on the outside is not a carvel planked boat. Second, CC never used caulking on their boats with...

    My father is a "Pioneer of Canadian Computing". He wrote his first program in 1954. When he worked for Dupont Research in the early 60's, they had a Sperry Univac, then an IBM 1620. A huge room of...
  6. Re: Another school shooting. You know the drill.

    True enough. As a Canadian, I used to be outraged and sad when these American shootings occurred. Now I realize it is just how American society functions. I am not going to change it, and my emotions...

    Re: America is Not a Democracy

    It's far worse than that.... America is quickly eroding the idea of a society with a rule of law. The West is in decline, and this is the rise of the East. By the end of the first term of the Trump...

    Re: Name required

    Snowflakes is the term used on Canadian facebook. We used to define people like that as having manners.
  9. Re: Another school shooting. You know the drill.

    The majority of Americans don't care enough to reform gun ownership laws, or if they do care, they can't seem to spearhead any political reform. It's a non issue, normal happening, in American...

  11. Re: U.S. preparing for a tactical nuclear strike?

    Absolutely, although I have my doubts a NK could successfully reach the USA. American anti-missile technology is excellent, and the distance involved is large. A multiple missile launch would be the...
  12. Re: Never ask an Astronaut to swear on the Bible that he walked on the moon

    We have had 200 years of what we agree to be modern scientific method. We have thousands of years of recorded history and science. Yet, there are still people who think swearing on a book that says...
  13. Re: U.S. preparing for a tactical nuclear strike?

    The American Military could take out most of NK's offensive arsenal in an afternoon. However, you don't get massive increases in defense spending by saying "Well folks, we spend 60% of the entire...

    I guess you could clean a warehouse floor with a toothbrush too, but I'm not sure you should. I use powertools for a reason. First, I have done woodworking for a living. Doing it by hand puts you at...
  15. Re: Scientists Counted All The Protein Molecules in a Cell And The Answer Really Is 4

    False news, the Chinese are behind it. What is the ideal temperature of a protein anyway? Can anyone answer that? Scientists are still divided on the whole subject. This is another Obama failure.

    Oh, I know. I don't come here much anymore. Just not a good fit anymore. I guess I should realize that about FB.
  17. Re: Will the government shutdown affect the stock market?

    I have been getting advice that the USA stock market is heavily overvalued, and will have a fairly strong correction sometime in the next 12 months.

  21. Does anyone else find Facebook to be extremely tolerant of Racism and bigotry?

    So being an adulterer is the same as being a victim of adultery. Interesting logic.
  41. Re: Hillary Clinton should just stay quiet and fade away

    People who voted for Donald Trump would have had hard time proving to me they were educated. So far this Presidency is a little kids version of government.

    Exactly right. All decisions will be made by a very small group. No process. Fortunately, legislative changes will be tougher for them, but a lot of damage is going to be done... and in a big hurry.
