Nubile can either mean "sexually mature" or "of marriageable age."

Of course, though generally men don't like to hear woman talk about "cracking nuts"

I expect that's very true Hummingway, ( grinning here) I did mean the coconuts. hoooooooonest.

Although, the threat of a 'nut cracking' might be a good way to keep the six pack crew in line? My , " I'll feed you to the sharks line" always makes my significant other laugh.

There are still sharks in this end of the world scenario, right?

Any crew I've had a six pack was all it took to keep them in line!

Only a six pack huh? rethinking my crew budget then, and my methods for keeping them in line. Sounds like a far civilized option than my earlier comments. hehehe

thanks for the laughs really enjoying the frivolous nature of this thread. but, now I have to get back to work. This old brass anchor winch won't polish itself.

Ok, so aside from the very desirable addition of a water-maker, what are our options for a compact BEER MAKER ?

But we do have to start with a water maker anyway - I do not think we can make beer directly from sea water?

(Much as I think Spanish 'beers' are made exactly this way ;-))).

Back to the end of the world scenario

I've kinda let this slip by for a while but I'm really surprised there hasn't been an uproar about the whole incident. Has anyone heard an update? If this wasn't a missile, what the hell was it?

These are scary times. Even more so then WWII. Our technology is supposed to prevent these surprises unless maybe the government is part of it. If so, then were really in deep crap.




So who can one believe anymore?

Kevin Martin from the Southern California Weather Authority states it was nothing but a contrail from an airliner.

On the other hand, Joe Farah’s credentials are obvious. What does Jesse Ventura think?

Mystery missile aside I think this is a valuable thread and would like to see it continue. I, for one, am convinced that we do live in a scary world and that bug out boats are a good solution for some. As I live in a large city I am concerned with a financial melt down and resultant civil unrest as a short term threat. I can see our inner city civil structure deteriorating pretty quickly under the right situation.

My plan is to head for Australia. Exchange rate permitting

In London the Revolution has already started

The problem with revolutions is that they paint with a broad brush, lots of collateral damage.

In the US we have a lot of states in financial trouble, the federal government keeps extending unemployment, now past 99 weeks. That starts to border on permanent. But it can't go on forever. Another financial fiasco and I'm afraid the whole house of cards will fall, and it could go quickly.
