In the spirit of all things RS, a couple of lightweight quips and then a few serious ones.

1. Which thread have you most enjoyed participating in?
1. And of course, which thread have you least enjoyed ...in or avoided?
Now for some serious ones.
1. Have you had trouble getting through on here with your iPhone today? Is it this pesky southerly?
1. What are tonights winning lotto numbers?
1. Do you think god is a goofy footer?
KK's epic North Narrabeen Local thread.

Hmm I was kind of disgusted with the response to the death of Saxon Bird last April by some people on this forum. The crassness and ignorance in the face of what had occurred I found pretty offensive and surprising. I nearly just bailed right then actually.

I haven't attempted to log on using an iPhone today.

I don't know.

I don't believe in the existence of any god.

Would you like to?
Yes, numerous times.

It's just not an issue for me.

I can't recall a dog attempting to have sex with my leg. My dog is a neutered female and so wouldn't engage in that behaviour in any case.

NC,

I've always wanted to know, do you old buggers look back and go, "hmmm wish I flagged school/work/uni more often and got barrelled" or "hmmm, really wished I had of studied/worked while I had the chance"?

I always wonder what I'll think later on?

Do you think about death? Your own death that is, not someone else's.


Why are people so unkind?


How do you go at tolerating the rank stupidity of the average person?


Is intelligence a gift or a curse?

Nick Nack,

My surfing crazy neighbour was thinking of leaving school early.

He is clever and very good at English, but hasn't found his calling yet.

Have you any sage or not so sage advice for him? He is 16 yr old and still in Year 10.

So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.

Yes. However, the answer may turn out to be a rejection of the question, as with TMC's request that I involve my family.

Do you plan on making another doco like Bombora? As far as surf doco's go this was by far one of the best I have seen

Nicholas

Thank you very much for replying to my questions ... in regards to Big Simon ... can't we still call him the big brother regardless of his age in comparison to his bro's seeing as he's the biggest?
Big Simes by definition can't have a big bro ... do you follow my reasoning or lack there of?

Ok ... I've got another ... George Greenough ... your thoughts on the man and his contribution to surfing ... bearing in mind that there is more than one aspect to the question and subsequent answer.

And another ... which came first the chicken or the egg? ... do you freeball in your wetsuit or wear budgie smugglers? ... are you leaving the realsurf forums to try and increase activity on the ASL site? ... or has this been some kind of deranged social experiment gone wrong? ... like communism.
Thats not a question as in do you like communism? ... but a statement as in gone wrong like communism ... your real name wouldn't be Nikolai Karoleski by chance? ... comrade ... are you still writing poetry? ... if so could you post an poem perchance thanking you in advance?
The moving finger writes and having writ moves on ... now all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel even half a line ... nor all thy tears wash out a single word of it.

Really appreciate your replies Nick even for the pithy shit. And ditto on Hatchies querie, though I wanted to ask your thoughts on a suggestion to document RealSurf forums. ?
Book or even fillum to produce a portrait of contemporary surfing and surfers vis vis the rhizomic tangents that manifest from a group who share one passion but discover a depth and bredth of opinions and ideas unimaginable in any other group who share a common interest/activity.???

Fcuking hell, you guys are being sucker punched here.

Carroll ain't going anywhere. He'll slide off into the sunset after the 6 large then re-emerge as some bizzaro New sarcastic troll, using the info so naively offered here.

Anyone who falls for this old bait and switch is dumber than I look.

Nick, do you believe that Surfing falls mostly under the paradigm of the "Heroes Journey" as espoused by Tim Baker?
