    Lol. I can see that. I took my lessons as a teen along with my two year older cousin and a handful of her(all female) friends. As a teenage boy it was basically..........paradise. :D

    Yah that would be amazing in an urban environment. Bobcats are super cool. I've seen them a couple of times in my life but very recluse in my experience.

    A properly functioning, maintained, and equipped saw should be a given for a pro user. But certainly worth mentioning on a forum. My simplistic quip was just a smart ass remark to razz all the strugglers back in the day. I quoted it and brought it forward in time for essentially the same reason. :D

    I copy pastad this little simple explanation: Sailing into the wind is possible when the sail is angled in a slightly more forward direction than the sail force. In this aspect, the boat will move forward because the keel (centerline), of the boat acts to the water as the sail acts to the wind. Someone will explain it properly/easily I imagine.

    I took sailing lessons as a child. It was fun. But that was a lifetime ago now. And only on a lake. I'm not a huge fan of oceans myself.

    Frigging bears. When I was like 14-17 I worked on a farm all through high school and it was loads of fun changing irrigation in the cornfield this time of year. You'd hear the buggers tromping around in there. atleast they were well fed. I'd have a half broken down dirtbike and not much else. All hand move guns on the farm I was on. Just whistle a tune and hope for the best. Never did have an issue though. It was just part of the job, yup there's bears in there. Be careful.

    Uhh Stig you know we have polar bears too right? So it was only you imagining a international chest thumping over bears. 8) The general knowledge/rule of thumb is to not challenge or try to scare off a grizzly. Atleast that I'm aware of. Submission, quiet posture and averted eyes is the playbook I was taught. Lots of people mistake brown bears for grizzlys in my locale which are just brown black bears. Shoo them away like a stray dog.

    Except for me. I'm not scared of bears. Maybe grizz a little, unless they're wearing a ranger hat.

    If grizzly bears 'scare off'. I think that might be news to them. ;) I've never met a polar bear. But if I do. I'll just offer him a coke.

    It was a grizzly that ate that guy. 'Grizz, the only bear to fear' Black bears are like neighbours pets up here. Shoo them off if they're menacing your garbage.

    It's just a job to me. But I see what Mick means about the drama that can develop. That said, one of the most enjoyable parts of this regular job is the social interaction. Yes you get a lot of interaction as a small business owner but it's not really a level playing field when it's a customer or an employee.

    It's played to my favour so far. He seems to choose his words/topics more appropriately around me. I don't mind if someone needs to vent a little. But don't be the broken record at work always spewing your personal shit.

    I work with a younger fella who likes to 'vent' all his personal woes to anyone who will listen at work. I cut him off mid-sentence now. Sorry man, I DON'T CARE! Yes I am a heartless bastard. :D

    But but. Without a like button think of all the 'housers that will be turning to things like heroine and fentanyl, or video games or fatty foods for their dopamine hit? I mean it now seems somewhat socially irresponsible not to have a like button no?
