Therein lies the problem of trying to have a discussion or debate on an internet forum, for those of us who do not have internet access at our beck and call or those at work all day it is impossible to have any cohesive written discussion as threads move on so fast and any implied intonation as there would be in natural speech is missed with use of the written word so as it's late and i haven't yet had my tea i'll just draw your attention to a few lines rather than another attempt to get my point across - maybe one person may get my meaning, if not?......... "shrug"....hey ho, it's only a bike forum and not real life.
whether it's right or wrong to do so is something you'll have to live with.
I've learned to live with it, i can never forget it but i accept what i did and in all honesty i'd probably do the same again if a similar situation arose.
And somafunk, interesting post but are you advocating mob/vigilante justice?
Nowhere did i mention mob/vigilante justice?, i may have mentioned a certain punishment or so called warning metered out to those who deserve it, a skipper on a fishing boat is responsible for maybe 4 to 8 lives on that boat over a three week fishing trip in all weathers, it's not a wee jolly out there wi fishing rods over the side of the boat - these are folk who put their lives and trust in the hands of the skipper whether that be in the North Sea in the depths of winter facing 70mph winds or facing 60ft Atlantic waves breaking over the bows, the boats fish in all weathers round the clock, and anything that may jeopardise the lives and safety of the crew whether that be faulty equipment due to some scrote having damaged it or missing equipment such as radios or items stolen such as necessary power tools to repair breakages or something as simple as petty vandalism of life rafts or stolen flares etc...etc. I could go on listing all that is on the boat but when you put to sea you have to know everything is as it should be, and you may say that checks should be carried out beforehand but it is impossible to have a checklist for everything - therefore anyone who willingly tampers or attempts to steal items from such a high risk and often deadly profession such as that deserves whatever happens to them, no matter how severe in my opinion. You cant **** with folks lives like that and expect to get away scot free or with a slap on the wrists from a judge - There's a saying, "There's only one law at sea - The Skippers".
no, I think he's advocating more drug fuelled paranoid delusional fantasies
I dunno where you stay but If you ever head up to scotland, particularly near any of the larger fishing ports up and down the west coast then please shout out on here, i'll make sure you can talk to a few skippers and hear their drug fuelled delusional fantasies from them first hand, there's always one of our boats knocking about somewhere, - 100% genuine offer btw....
From now on i'm only going to offer advice or my opinion on "what tyres for........?" threads, I may join in the "hardtails vs full suss vs dropper posts vs rigid makes you a better rider vs what brogue for IT support worker"" threads as well coz they can be quite a laugh, some folk just seem to take this forum malarky too seriously - if you don't agree with what's written then fine - move on and realise that it's just someone else's opinion, you may not agree with it as you have every right to do, but that does not give you the right to hide behind a keyboard casting aspersions on another persons character.
