Even if it is a troll Captain.. so what.

"Other than the first post, this is an awesome thread, some great points raised."


Lemonaide out of lemons. Its an affirmation of the positive.

Plus the ayn rand post was classic.

Captain...or Skully

It's lemonade, actually.
I just don't see the point. Like your troll cares?
It's like beating off or some such. Pointless.
Like much of the infernoweb.

Have fun with yourselves, I guess.

edit: Nevermind, then. Congratulate yourselves. Maybe I'm missing your point. If you already know what's up, why affirm anything?
BTW,I'm not bummed. Bummed at how often I'm misunderstood, perhaps.

Thanks for the spelling lesson.. haha..

The point is.. who cares about the troll. The troll didn't win anything and even if in his little troll mind he thinks he won, it still doesn't matter. Because he was trying to spread negativity, and wasn't able to. People were bummed by what he said, and then people started injecting the positive and the whole thread became a net positive. So troll or not.. its a net positive.

Forget the troll. He lives under a bridge. We jump off of bridges. We soar over bridges. We might run a rapids under a bridge, but we don't live under it.

If you stay bummed about people posting up positive things, well, then the troll does win.

What's the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US? Major unforeseen medical bills. You can have a job, a house and savings and still be wiped out in a flash. I know a guy from my high school who owned a $880 K house in the suburbs. Wound up with a strange disease they couldn't find a name for, and he was wiped out in about 3 weeks. Luckily his cousin found out that because he'd been in the Air Force, he had some vet benefits. Now he gets to be taken care of and fed with a straw at a VA hospital till he departs this vale of tears. Lucky him!

good ole donny. winding up the tacoheads since 2001(?) *citation needed

what's impressive to me is the sheer dedication to trolling this forum since it's inception. that is some grade VII trolling. i mean, we're talking hooks duct-taped to a 20' tentpole kind of dedication to the craft.

this one's a bit on the obvious side, but hey this pond is shallow. as it's always been.

I will,put this point blank, using language that I don't think anyone has ever seen from me on this forum.
You are a scum sucking, bottom feeding, low life piece of f*#king trash, and a f*#king coward to boot. Grow some f*#king balls and post under your real name, and see how well this community effort works in a different direction.
You have the nerve to post this sh#t when my friend is Ina f*#king rehab center fighting to even be able to walk right now after an accident that could happen to anyone. And no matter how good your insurance is, I guran damn tee that you'd run out of it real f*#king quick if this had happened to you.
Troll or not, you ever want to step up and I will be glad to educate you. One thing you don't do, ever, is talk sh#t about one of my friends. I don't have many and I will stand up to anyone, anywhere, that is so much of a f*#king coward to kick them when their down.
I almost died on El Cap last year. My friends saved my life. If I knew who you were and it happened to you, I'd walk the f*#k away. And people here who know me and what I do in that regard know how deep of a statement that is.

Karma is a motherf*#ker, and you just put yourself Ina real good position to make it come due.

The one saving grace of this thread is the fact that every damn one of us is standing against you. So your little troll may have been successful in the short term, but in the long term it will bite you in the ass. Count on it. Shitass worthless punk. I'm a lot older and more passive the. I was in the old days, thank God, but I'd love to stomp a mud hole in your a*# and walk that motherf*#ker dry.

Sometimes this stuff is TOO funny. Who cares if this is a troll...

Check out page one again! There's this dude who can't understand why a middle aged guy with kids AND a race boat doesn't have any money.

Snicker.

Crap, my moorage was more than my rent, a new set of sails is like replacing your entire wall rack once a year, you have one hell of a lot more rope to buy AND the crew expects you to buy the beer after the race. Sure ate a lot of peanut butter and jam (hold the jam)

THEN came the kids. Now they get the peanut butter sandwiches.

EDIT: Absolutely NO disrespect to the dead or living meant...but I've STILL got coffee in my sinuses and all over my screen.

If I knew who you were and it happened to you, I'd walk the f*#k away.

I'm guessing you wouldn't, because it would be a far greater lesson in humility for the troll to show him the kindness of selflessness than to reflect his (or her?) own selfishness and it's next to impossible for someone with compassion to ignore another being in pain.

Good comments on this thread. We should thank the troll for the chance to air them. Good job!

There is a reason Humans are social animals.

It is because the race would not have survived without it.

Climbski2, well put.


I was reading several articles recently...


Brain comparison suggests that Neanderthals lacked social skills

http://science.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/03/12/17287827-brain-comparison-suggests-that-neanderthals-lacked-social-skills?lite

New insights into differences in brain organization between Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans

http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/280/1758/20130168.full


Neanderthals Lacked Social Skills

http://news.discovery.com/human/evolution/neanderthals-lacked-social-skills-130312.htm

The original poster may have more than the 4% of the Neanderthal DNA that some scientists and researchers suggest most homo sapiens have.


That said/written...

Study casts doubt on human-Neanderthal interbreeding theory
Cambridge scientists claim DNA overlap between Neanderthals and modern humans is a remnant of a common ancestor

http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/aug/14/study-doubt-human-neanderthal-interbreeding

Neanderthals ... They're Just Like Us?
Well, not exactly. But new discoveries have had a surprisingly humanizing effect.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/10/121012-neanderthals-science-paabo-dna-sex-breeding-humans/


There's more... but if the original poster thinks he/she is superior to most of Taco Standers, let the delusion stand. He/she is only fooling 'themself.'

And unlike some, the Neanderthal in me has not sussed out who the OP is. Have I missed something, besides being last in line when God was giving out brains?

Wait a minute, I am an atheist, so God never gave me a brain. Must be my Catholic upbringing.

Anyway, Happy Paddy's Day.

Some claim that St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland (yet, there are plenty of human snakes here), but why won't the bloke give me the winning lottery numbers, if he is a saint? Typical Welshman, (and I have Welsh heritage in me).

Lots of us work our asses off in jobs that have no health care. I know i have a full time job and a part time buisness and have zero health care and just barely staying on top of the bills. somehow this is all my fault because I go climbing once or twice a week?
