PB&J and SUPplement are primed for a bare-knuckle, no holds barred showdown. They got a lil aggro in the same way that infamous microscopic peak in Delaware was the catalyst between white rash guard dude and whoever the other culprit was. Ill be the referee, but I can't promise I won't jump in and submit both of them simultaneously with guillotine chokes. Can't help myself sometimes. No aggro, just playful primate behavior.
I don't care what people post on here. I'm not one of those Swellinfo quality control dudes who complain aboot threads they feel are inappropriate or don't meet their high standards. I don't care. I believe in free speech. The only threads that bother me are the constant wetsuit questions. Really guys, wetsuits really aren't that complicated.
I posted, my first submission aboot this topic from another angle and was serious. It gave an alternative view and scenario than the typical, " Go for it, man !!!!!!!!"
Then I thought, well SUP takes his surfing pretty seriously so let's see how serious and threw out the suggestion to leave his wife and move to the Northern California lost coast. That's all I did. That got SUP all bent.
I wasn't bagging on his thread until SUP - who jokes, makes wise-ass remarks, etc to others - got bent because I said he should divorce his wife and live in isolation. Different rules apply when SUP is serious.
All of a sudden Swellinfo.com is LIFE AND DEATH. Very serious. Of course, I find it odd that someone would seriously consider advice from a group of internet strangers some of whom can't get in or out of wetsuits. Any rational decisive person would. SUP took this thread real serious. Sorry, but I didn't.
Really, how many of you would ax advice and act on that advice from dudes on the internet? Plus, I reckon this, and other swellinfo community participation threads, makes people feel a part of something........viable. Plus, everyone loves to share their opinions, right?
It's funny how a few noble statesmen on here have this guru status, meanwhile they are probably some disgusting, soiled T-Shirt wearing, Cap N Crunch-eatin, child molesters or something. HA HA Like, if I was a chick, I sure wouldn't ax any of youse guys what "choice" I should make.
So Spicoli, you'll have to look towards SUP for any fights. That it went this way to begin with is ridiculous. And, when I'm not jumping into a verbal scrap, then you know it's ridiculous, and there just ain't nothing to scrap aboot. Having said that, all of y'all divorce your wives, sell your kids and go feral. If you don't you're not a real surfer.
The wetsuit questions, yes, those have been posted ad nauseum. I agree that many to most of them are lack of common sense in finding a suit that fits like body paint (because any other is a waste of money and time to put it on) although I do understand when one seeks counsel when buying an item that there is a wide market for and can cost up to several hundred dollars much like a board purchase. But no one seems to use the search feature, and who the heck wears wet suits anyway? I ditched mine as soon as the water hit mid 50s but then again, there are probably some that will warn me of some condition like Swimmer's Butt.
The main issue at hand is your use of the word "feral". I will have to footnote/cite you as I go forth and overuse it because my use of "primate" and "primordial' is rampant and needing variety. Just like Bodhi, you know we can never be caged.
Also, one never "goes" feral. We merely release the inhibitions that were placed upon our natural ferality by betas that wished to preserve themselves by collectively stripping the strong of their survival mechanisms.
Here is my advice;
You can never over-analyze these moves.
If you are going to regret NOT going, then go. Things will work themselves out in the end.
My girlfriend and I recently moved from the east coast after home was destroyed to California. I quit a pretty good job (Quicksilver) and she left the rat race of NYC. We rented a place 4 blocks from the beach and it was the best decision my girlfriend and I made. Things slowly worked out.
Don't analyze it, just go. You won't regret it.
Is this the longest running surfing soap opera thread in the existence of the Swell Info forums?
