    Whatever you say Barry. Science lost it’s objectivity and fell to corruption a long time ago. Studies are financed with results the owners want. Otherwise, no future grants. I read a while back that polio was eliminated, yes, due to vaccines. But scientists had to study it some more and kept it around, and now it’s showing up again. There’s money…[Read more]

    Was going to comment yesterday but it turned out to be one of those days…too busy with stuff.

    It’s too bad that some people cannot have a disagreement and still remain civil. Comments like: “first off, anti vaxxers need to be publicly beheaded on national television as a lesson to not spread bullshit stupidity.” Reminds me of the saying,…[Read more]

  • Sanders never held a real job and was kicked out of a Vermont commune for not doing a damn thing (as in not paying yer fair share).

    Looks like Warren will be the nominee unless the gov. media complex axes her for lying on Harvard entrance exams among other BS’s and pitches Hillary as a last ditch savior.

    So anti vaxxers are evil idiots, even those doctors that are in that group. And on the other side we have big pharma spending $30 Billion a year to promote their products. If they’re so good and safe, why do they need to spend $30B?

    Doctors kill about 250,000 ppl. per year thru medical mistakes. About 700 per DAY. It’s about profit, not your…[Read more]

    Like I said, not much was known about mononucleosis then. If it was bacterial and not viral, would the results have been different?

    On another note, do you recall the Thalidomide babies? Horribly deformed at birth due to a drug that passed FDA and was thought safe. Time will tell on the safety of any drug. The cost to develop/market new drugs…[Read more]

    If I was a soon to be parent I would spend a lot of time reading. Be skeptical, be informed, from both sides of the issue. I grew up with a great doctor as my stepfather and ended up with tinnitus from a mega dose of penicillin at age 13 in an attempt to cure mono. Not enough was known about it…[Read more]

    I found enough room next to the Camry battery to place a gallon jug of water and now after surfing I have a warm shower. Might not work in cold country, though. (I stayed out 2 hrs. yesterday on one of the coldest days of the year here (72-74) and the water was tepid by then.)

    To get a little colder air out of your AC, try a spray bottle cleanser…[Read more]

    All the stoked people are here clogging up the breaks. 20-30 on one peak. Makes it easy to lose the stoke.

    Big Pharma Barry weighs in with enthusiastic support as expected. If you don’t think today’s vaccines are healthy then you’re an idiot. Got it, Barry.

    Is it true that most/any/all vaccines are made in China? A yes or no will suffice.

    Is it true that Merck’s MMR vaccine contains human DNA from aborted fetuses? Yes or no, please. If so,…[Read more]

  • I like the Surfline measurement: 5′ is head high, 6′ is one foot overhead. So, those waves Saturday were 3′ on the smallest and a foot overhead on the biggest. I guess wave ‘faces’ would be right…

    Not like in Hawaii where you’d call that 2′-4′, or smaller. Never understood the undercalling of Hawaiian surf. I’ll dig out a past photo and post…[Read more]

  • Been surfing a bit late last week between power outages and earthquakes. Mostly wind swell and lots of peaks with not much to work with. Trade winds blowing hard, sideshore and sometimes offshore.

    Yesterday looked at a couple named spots and being Sunday, I naturally have lower expectations and true enough, it was packed. Went south a bit and…[Read more]

    I’m taking a few days off…running low of monthly Gb.’s

    And 29 earthquakes in the past week– this morning’s was a real wakeup at 4:30AM, a 6.0. A few things falling in the house, power’s out and so is a surf run today.

    “A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena..”

    “A tentative explanation for an observation or phenomena..”

    One is a theory, one is a hypothesis.

    As for Channel Islands and north, why not a killer whale pattern on the wetsuit and board?

    Barry, scientific proof begins with theory. Thanks for your expert opinion as a behavioral scientist.

    Should be “Buzzkill Barry”.

    Or “Barry Buzzkill”.

    kidding. sort of.

    I painted the bottom of my new board with ballyhoo. You should paint yours with mullet or menhaden patterns.

    Hey, you only live once, right? s/

    Not sure if banded sea snake patterns would work in other than South Pacific oceans. Unless great whites have it in their dna to avoid them, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Well, so much for internet anonymity…are you all sure you want to send your pic to the Utah Data Center for posterity?

    Without the life story I’ll post a couple of pics…but will admit to not being a young wave charger anymore…still will push 8-10′ if it’s clean and survivable..

    Not goin’ to read all 49 posts but I read a couple days ago about Nature Made vitamins made in China. Probably many others, too.

    Also have read that most vaccines are made in China. Yeah, get yer kids vaxxed with chinese poison.

    Happy New Year!

  • TropicSurfer2 replied to the topic Merry Christmas y'all in the forum Main Forum 1 month, 1 week ago · 

    love saying Merry Christmas…it is that time of year.

    No happy holiday greetings from me.

    Got my present last week with the new/slightly used board. Haven’t had a decent wave yet, tho.

    And a nice shout out to Kelly at Anotherride surfboards in Indian Harbor Beach. Fl. for finding someone to bring it here.

    Got the new fins put on today and…[Read more]
