Can I join in some good, clean, fun generalizating too? (W would be proud of my new word)

Young vs. older

1. Adventerous, big balls, risk takers, adrenaline junkies
2. Rebelious
3. Like to party; think brain cells regenerate, or just doesn't think about it at all; forget where they hid the car keys at takeout
4. Doesn't really give a crap what others think about them
5. Childless (as far as they know)
6. Will sleep anywhere (cold ground, car, etc)
7. Single
8. Subliminally believe they'll always think, live and generally stay the way they are-young
9. Spontaneous
10. Boating is a passion

1. Adventerous, but balls shrinking; healthy, (or not), fear of death
2. To piss the boss off would drastically change lifestyle; possible bankruptcy
3. Know brain cells don't regenerate, but can deal with it; forget where they hid the car keys at takeout
4. To have the boss judge them as anything but loyal, hard working and polite would drastically change lifestyle; possible bankruptcy; enjoys five weeks of vacation a year for boating ops
5. At least one child has gone, or is going through puberty; raised or is raising a teenager
6. Can't stand up straight or turn head for 3 days if they fall asleep on the couch
7. Happily married; looks forward to more boating ops upon retiring together
8. Is reminded constantly that they are slower, soarer/soarer longer; of their wrinkles from being out in the sun for over 40 years; that life experience has changed their perspective on life and made them what they are-older
9. Idea of spontaneous is taking the dog for a walk
10. Boating is a passion

Full O'Crap, maybe. Nothing negative though. I loved being that young, rebelious, race motorcycles on country roads, person and I'm loving being that older, wiser, have people to live for, person. AND I REALLY LOVE BOATING! Looks like we all have something in common.

Now, where did I hide those keys? Experience tells me that keys with chips cost about $70 to have made, damn it!

good points medman .. but where i differ is in the mentality of "whenever we go to war it's a good thing -- look at germany & japan." *this* war is over the last remaining scraps of petroleum, not nazism or fascism or even "terrorism" (that'd be like saying in WW2 "we're fighting kamikazi-ism"). we are the first world clinging for dear life to the comfortable commuter culture that we've grown up in. it's all we know & we're all part of it. doesn't mean it's wrong to discuss & shine light on the issues. add to that the fact that the administration lied to the world about the motives (& yeah, that's a pretty big deal when you're talking about a pre-emptive war strategy), & that it's being blatantly "pitched" to the faithful as a christian movement (against islam?) .. & it can definitely ruffle some feathers.

Medman, get back on your meds!

What's up with the socialism rant? Was somebody here advocating socialism? Or are you implying that anybody who's not down with BushCo's Plan of Attack (on Iraq, on the environment, on personal liberties, on church/state separation, on corporate/state separation, etc., etc., etc.) is a "socialist"?

I guess being the fairminded guy that you are, you won't mind if I refer to all the Bushlickers as "fascists" then, hmmmm? I'll spare you the fascist rant, since we all know how that worked out...

Oh, and as far as frontrangers for Bush go, that link shows that Denver went for Kerry by an even larger ratio than Boulder did. Damn pinkos!

I love it. Everyone arguing just slightly off topic so as not to directly address peoples concerns. It is like real politics. Argue your stance no matter what the question. medman I like you, we've paddled together a couple times, and you may end up saving my ass one day so I could care less if you are conservative or not. I'm very liberal, but I hate a lot of hippies so you see it really doesn't matter what your views are you can get along or you can't. Most conservatives don't have an evil agenda. Most politicians do. If anarchy wouldn't interfere so much with my boating plans I'd say lets give it shot. So I say f all this politcal shit and just go get er done. Grass roots is the way to go. Be nice to everyone especially fellow boaters.

I was trying to go a a good humorous rant, and all but it seems I've lost my angst. That and I have to get back to work now. I'll go for points next time.
Damn I Look Good.
