Is Pinochet our moderator? Our posts keep getting disappeared.

Where do they go, I wonder. Is there some parallel-universe forum where all the irreverent funny people are posting.

Dude Bro Man had some serious issues with the validity of his content (who doesn't?) but at least he made me laugh.

In Mitch's silence, I'll press on ... but very slowly, as my knee rehab load is expanding rapidly now that I'm off the narcotics and am allowed to use the knee.

My question: Isobars, did you really windsurf with a football helmet for some time?

Naah. I didnít wear any helmet when I played intramural football (into my early 30s). Youíre thinking of the batterís helmet (light, visored, face-guarded) I wear when WSing. My Mom LIKES my face.

Isn`t 10,000+ posts enough? What more could he possibly say?

That isnít 20% of what Iíve written in sports, medical, WSing, engineering, political, legal, and other fields, some determining outcomes involving life and death and/or hundreds of millions of dollars, others helping people learn to WS. You should try writing something positive and contributory for a change; itís more fun to me than anything but hard core sports.

Question: Isobars- do you regret not becoming a lawyer? You'd have been an awesome lawyer!

Iíve heard that since high school, and have beaten many lawyers in several venues. Their focus is on interpreting law written by man to suit the needs of their client, rather than seeking and using irrefutable fundamental laws of math and physics. I thus chose science as applied to engineering, where fundamental truths and measurable observables, rather than impressionable lay juries and shriveled bloody gloves, drive and determine outcomes. Rocket science is simpler, more elegant, and more provable than bottomless political jello such as AGW.

But wait; thereís more.

The law also tolerates, often indefinitely, indecipherable verbage that cannot be diagrammed ... for credit and sometimes even for misplaced praise ... just because it is sprinkled with legal terms. Science ultimately sees through that.

Both disciplines argue passionately, but their purposeful topical debate over issues is worlds apart from the abominable, incessant, childish personal crap these creeps dump in our face. I abhor and try to avoid the latter, as evidenced by my extensive killfile and my general refusal to engage in baseless personal attacks. My carefully chosen handful of attacks on individuals were provable, necessary, and relevant to the topic, not irrelevant substitutes for facts or logic.

our sport needs to project a cooler image to attract the youth.

What I see mostly on the beach (and I include myself) is a lot of the older crowd bulls**tting about windsurfing and not doing much of it. Now, do we need to carry that image in a mag?

No reason we canít sail when we can, talk when we canít sail, and write when neither is possible. Besides, Iíd rather WS (or talk, or write) than ďbe coolĒ. (Good thing, huh?)

I`m guessing maxpowers is one of isobars` aliases. What better way for iso to give himself the opportunity to bloviate. once again, to his heart`s delight, about himself? What a tool.
