Re: Why Do Catamarans Motor Nearly 100%

It appears that being unencumbered by experience is a very good thing. On the logic presented by Polux I should now be an absolute expert at everything from Brian Surgery to Cartesian Dualism.

Methinks they doth protest too much.*

Yes fully aware that the above is a misquote - but it works better

Re: Why Do Catamarans Motor Nearly 100%

That is a misquote as well. most people think that Decartes said "I think therefore I am" what he really said was "Poto ergo sum" - I drink therefore I am.

Yeah, that's right, cats motor nearly 100% of the time. I mean, how does one 'debate' such an obviously ignorant, inflammatory statement with those who support it?

And it is a statement, not a legitimate question. It states as a fact that cats motor nearly 100% of the time - something which is demonstrably untrue (are they motoring across oceans)? Its like asking someone - 'why is your wife such an ugly bitch'? Actually, it is worse than that - someone's wife may actually suit that description, but cats clealy don't motor nealy 100% of the time. A more apt comparison might be "Why are nearly 100% of visible minorities less intelligent than white people'!

I, for one, refuse to debate with bigots.

Well put Brad...and we're especially delighted that you don't seem to be (yet!?) threatened with censure and removal from the Forum for your rhetorical "ugly bitch" question. We were absolutely pilloried for a very similar rhetorical question in this thread, ending up being pressed by Ken and mods to withdraw the post and apoligise...cf post #159.

Since then we took wiser counsel ... never engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person ...and the incredible double-standards and hypocrisy continue to grow, much to our increasing amusement!

Please, please...keep it coming as this must be one of the most entertaining threads ever!!

Sorry to hear you had troubles with Ken and the mods. I've always thought you've gone out of your way to be politically correct and to take other people's feelings into consideration when you post.

Re: Why Do Catamarans Motor Nearly 100%

Factor is, of course, correct - "I think, therefore I am" is no different than saying, "I drink, therefore I am." As Immanuel Kant pointed out in his criticism of Descarte in 'Critique of Pure Reason', existence is not a predicate. OK, this may be a slight case of thread drift, but with a thread with this title, purport and object, that is no bad thing!

Brad, I was just so astounded by your foul language! You are another poster who is usually very considerate in the way you word things............so I take it you were just pissed of when you made your post above! Good on you, I can't think of a time where I didn't appreciate and agree with the words you've posted.

Re: Why Do Catamarans Motor Nearly 100%

Well


Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was rarely sailing,
Heideggar was a boozy begger who spent most of his time sick over the railing,
Aristotle was a begger for the throttle, and Hobbes was fond of his dram,
Rene Descartes was a drunken fart, "I motor therefore I am".


but this is beside the point.

Did any of these guys actually sail a cat????


Can any of you guys tell me whether I have walked into the argument or the insult room by mistake. I actually paid for intellectual discourse???

No you didn't - you paid for intellectual discourse. This is being hit on the head lessons.
