Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

Noah's song www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfBwsG8ubFw Haha - a classic and in the quant context - an anti-volatility song. On sailing though - was thinking that this is closer to the spirit and feeling of skiing. Physical exertion, rewarded with flying. I love hiking in wilderness, but that will always b...

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

: ) Transitional thoughts... On a J24s, the spinnaker pole is free and you go forward and attach it to the mast for the spin set. Better do the whole thing right because when the kite "loads up" in a strong wind, you won't be able to get it back easily. ("Kite" is the spinnaker s...

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

Noah was only doing his job in the face of adversity and those unbelievers .. it would be a mammoth task to get the Leviathan (Job 40) on board. Leviathan would actually be a great name for a boat - wonder if the name is taken. I may get a J105 some day with some friends. Nice racing boat - good si...

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

In the Old Testament, Leviathan appears in Psalms 74:14 as a multiheaded sea serpent that is killed by God and given as food to the Hebrews in the wilderness. WT*? ppauper never told us that? So, Lev was a big edible eel? Learn something new every day. Hopefully they cooked it first. Fun Fact: Eels...

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

Was just about to post about the seaworthiness of this vessel - you beat me to it! On the size - the specifications are well documented, whether the Ark actually existed or not: "The structure of the Ark (and the chronology of the flood) are homologous with the Jewish Temple and with Temple wor...

Question about Search Function

Hello admin, 

I just tested the search function for a few quant topics and usernames and the forum seems to be indexed and searchable up to around March 4, but not beyond.

Re: I'm a Punkrocker Yes I Am

Did any prisoners escape from prison after the performance? Apparently about a dozen did escape from the mental hospital.  "You know I love you, But you've got a hell of a lot to learn about Rock 'n' Roll!" Looked it up and no, not after that concert, which was 1968. Folsom State Prison -...

CtoL - this is amazing - thank you.  Will check these out. Here is my first pass compilation: sample global covid data, a timeline, comparative public policy and public awareness research, and Long Covid. Will probably post a few more on the weekend.
