    Hello...

    Yes this is a pun based on Plato’s Cave - as was same by the original manufacturer of the stuff - but I don't expect same to go far here or to have it cast its many shadows...

    But I intend to expand on the inventors' intent - freedom of information and intent - something we built upon and then lost in our North American pursuit of personal gain - by the **** crew of Capitalism...

    Capitalism works - so long as it is protected from exploitation - and the ultimate beneficiaries - it is a 'Catch 22' argument.

    This is for the American 'Oxford' graduates who get their piece of paper whilst going public on CDN TV - to tell the world - in all earnest - that Torontonian Italian immigrants - must stop killing the Polar Bears with icicles...

    Myself - I will never throw an ice cycle or an icicle at a Polar Bear - I cannot fathom its effectiveness - but then - I have not had access to the top secret American CIA studies regarding same...

    I personally believe that Oxford in the USA should fund a study to determine the effectiveness of throwing ice cycles versus icicles at Polar Bears as a means of National Defence and Security...

    Ok - that is played out just about as far as I can see...

    And at the moment I seem to be having some trouble focusing...

    Sean, Play Dough caught my attention as I need something to help me mould shapes for my proposed design. I have drawn some using DelftShip (free) and will probably eventually get much of the rest even??? - - - But - - - - I am baffled as to how do I present my concepts to a NA/NE for development into real plans for a builder of some competence to create? I like to see a model, I need some mould-able foam? to allow me to "sand" and otherwise shape some bits like the forward end of the bridge-deck and bows??

    Scatter your focus & brilliant mind over that, Please - - Thanks:D

    Sorry - I was drinking again...

    Hello...

    I need to pour some V8 into my belly - seems I have managed to significantly lower my boiling point again - no one got hurt - and I woke up in my own bed - so all is well...:)

    Seems I cannot open FBM files from Delftship in Freeship - someone is doing the old trick of getting greedy and going with proprietory files...

    Always a way around that though...

    Let me apologise for my bad habits...

    My name is Sean and I am an alchoholic...

    Hi Sean...:)

    Wait a minute - who are all you guys - get out of my house you bums...

    Per your post - I guess that you are not a builder - if you could find same - go down to the yards - I am sure someone has some 4 inch 2 pound P/U - just lying around in a corner of their shop slowly dissapearing under F/G dust - and they would just give it to you - to get rid of it...

    It gets a bit nasty sanding it - it develops a charge and sticks to everything - mostly your eyeballs - but it easy to work with for a quick work up...

    Then go get yourself a can of Rage (I love that) - a can of Rage - seriously though - it is a two part sandable fairing compound (not BONDO) - great fun - easy to control the kick time - sands like butter - sticks to just about any substrate...

    Thanks Sean. That may do the trick if I can get same in Aussy..... Sounds like an Australian TV-rock music show from the 70's - still running I think. Our original rocker, Johnny O'Keef, used to do the intro music (chopped by the tape-man) to go something like "Ra, Ra, Ra, Ra, Rage?" cut from one of his shows.

    If I can give up nicotine for a lovely lady, Lets see you stop boosing for yourself. Stay ranting though, I reckon that is "good for the spleen" in that "frustration does not build up" or whatever - fcuk knows - I am just waffling - better get back to the drivel thread and vent my spleen..... Thanks again Sean....

    Hello...

    Check out 'Ole Miss'...

    Many could benefit from a trip to the UK...

    Looks like you got me - anyway - where are you building those boats of yours - to change the subject...

    Everywhere. I worked in Delta for three years before that I was in Victoria. After Delta I went back to Victoria. Now I'm in Vernon of all places, we'll see where this year takes me... I have a feeling it starts with "V".
