    Hello...
    Aside from doodling boats that I never intend to build - I am trying to become a little less stupid - as with so many things - I find this to be very difficult...:)
    It just occured to me that my surfing is limited to English - but if I Google translate into other languages - wow...
    North Sea Trawler - as Danish - Norwegian - German - and Dutch opens up a whole other world...
    Pretty intelligent - Eh...:)

    It's hard to get anything done...

    Been stupid all my life- changing that is way down on the list along with learning to play the accordion, treating my fellow man with respect and finding a decent cigar.

    :D

    Being Stupid...

    Hello...
    Being stupid - or faking the dullard is a good way to stay below the radar and see who gets picked off the hill on a whistle charge - and who remains alive...
    A bit guerrilla perhaps - I prefer to hide behind a good tree - until I have a clean kill shot...
    Thus - I like being stupid - to date it has worked out - I am sure it will fail me some day...:)

    All my life I saw stupid people getting ahead of smart people. I thought it was a great conspiracy. However the whole thing about supposing to be smart is, you're supposed to be able to learn. It took me a long time to figure that out. Sean, don't change, you could ruin everything!

    To paraphrase Shakespeare:

    Know more than what you say,show less than what you have.

    I could list all the ways,means,and benefits.But.....

    Sometimes when we look int the tunnel we don't see the light. Mostly because there is a bend in it. If we bear the short dark and difficult, who knows what beauty and surprise awaits us on the other end.

    Don't give up. If you do you're going to miss out on all the witty **** we put up on this forum - not to mention the launch of Mas's boat...

    Hello...
    Know more than what you say and show less than what you have...

    ....and live beneath your means.


    Yet I continually see many of those who say more than what they know,insecure and trying to impress or seeking approval.

    And many who show more than what they have-bank loans for luxury cars and houses that are too much.

    Gerbils on the running wheel,working their lives away while hoping someone will notice their new BMW/SUV/etc.

    Am fortuneate enough to afford any car out there,and a large yacht.
    But I can't be chained to any of those,just lots of drama and slavery-true freedom is my game.
