As do I. This question has confounded me for near a millenia.

Re: Unanswered Quesions

James first post in this thread was inadvertently split off from the thread on cruising 24 countries by JetSki. Stranded on its own, it received some interesting replies . . . so I've restored it to the Off Topic Forum for its entertainment value.

OK, all you philosophers . . . let's see what you have to offer . . .

Re: Unanswered Quesions

Let us begin with: "Who the hell is James S?"

(And why has it been so long since he's posted a photo of a boat project?)

Re: Unanswered Quesions

OK, here is a question that has been popping up in my noggin for a while.

Here in the U.S. the driver sits on the left, in aircraft the pilot in command sits in the left seat, so how come in small powerboats the helm is on the right?

Rich

How many thousands of years old are you?
Millenia may refer to a common misspelling of millennia, the plural of millennium, a period of 1,000 years.

Re: Unanswered Quesions

Ah yes, a royal wedding. The only thing more tedious then the national election. The election is only a trifle more significant in the scheme of things.

There you have it. Jaded fatalism. My philosophy of the moment.

Normally I favor reductionism.
