    It was your decision to bring scrutiny to my personal and professional life based of thin slices of my time expenditure as indicated by an online forum.

    Three words back at you, but we will have fun and make this a puzzle since you like the suspense of trying to figure out answers that are meaningless to your life.

    Three words similar in composition to those three you used: "_ _ _ _ _ _ yourself"
    Scrutiny? Seriously? I wrote that I wonder what you do for a living because you seem to have an awful lot of spare time on your hands between your exorbitant forum posting and surfing. You've been on this forum for a month or so and your word count is probably higher than every other forum member combined (except for PJB and gaffer maybe - no offense, guys).

    You say that you'll "have the decorum and appropriateness not to accept the invite to the **** measuring contest" while essentially dropping your pants bragging about where you're "posted up" and how many "co-eds" are on the beach, while denigrating me and assuming I'm an anxiety-riddled corporate slave. You don't know me or my work situation. I've never written anything about it, so I don't understand where you see this invitation you speak of. Maybe I'm rolling like NJShred or maybe I work at McDonald's and have 5 kids to support or maybe I'm an over-anxious corporate slave.

    You seem like an intelligent person, but for the most part, your posts consist of 500 words of vacuous drivel with about 15 words of anything meaningful. Please, go back and read over your last month's worth of posts. Read them out loud to a friend and ask him if you sound like an pretentious ***. Shoot for brevity in the future - everybody reading this forum will thank you for it.

    Maybe it is meaningless, but maybe I'm looking for a career change and was seriously wondering what you did that allowed you to seemingly have so much free time on your hands at the ripe old age of 30something. Yeah, I asked the question, but I didn't get an answer...only another truckload of drivel.

    I wouldn't call it BA per se. Or any place worth visiting or passing through. But it is the most densely populated city in CT and has a crime rate 9x the national average. Following the Industrial Revolution, it was a thriving metropolis and more or less a place to be. That fell apart in the last 50 years, probably worse than say a Pittsburgh.

    The reason I used Bridgeport is that it was mentioned in other threads the last couple days and it's fairly representative of the extremity of self-policing human nature that meager sheltered folk like crackedinri are insulated from ever having to be part of or experience. Hence, my suggestion that much could be learned by he and some other audacious others on here by "taking their game to the streets" where there's no place to hide when your mouth writes a check your body can't cash. But hey, who needs to be a man in this world when your domineering mother or suburban lawyer can shield you from or get you out of any mess your arrested development puts you in?

    Re-read my post that started this thread. Is it vacuous drivel? Or is it within the realm of what a surfing forum should have? It's 6 sentences of a pertinent topic that all can understand and it invited the unique input and perspective of others. Pretty much a functional post of any forum.

    What are vacuous are posts that derail otherwise functional forum threads into debate and investigation of members' professional lives. Is this a job search forum or career building forum? Is it a time management forum? In hindsight, was putting my occupation and sum of free time under a microscope at all of value to this thread, this forum, and its members?

    How many words is this post so far? If less than 500, and you get the point, I'd call me the control, you the variable, and your "getting the point" in less than 500 words "PROGRESS".

    WOW... I was actually asking a question. Not even being sarcastic (I know it's hard to tell the difference between sarcastic comments and real questions)
    And you go all grammar police on me? Great job buddy. You got me

    nynj, wasn't at all jumping down your throat. Like you said, it's difficult to discern tone from the written word. I said it casually as misuse of heterographs happens to be a pet peeve of mine. Zero intention to call you out. Was more of an aside before I took the time to answer your question about Bridgeport.

    if you're going to complain about people not talking about surfing or surf related topics on this forum, don't be a hypocrite. that is all.

    In what way? By commenting on and adding to threads that are intended to be off-topic or are steered off-topic? Or by choosing to finally engage these flamethrowers even if I've ignored their first 5 provocations?

    If it's the first, then I never said there's no place for off-topic posts in a forum. That's part of any good web forum, especially when we have lots of witty fellow surfers on here that can be a source of well-shared humor and also discussion of other outside experiences that are mutually shared by the members here.

    If it's the second, I try to ignore the needless instigation as much as humanly possible. At a certain point, the self-respect kicks in and something's got to be done to curtail the BS, especially when it wasn't prompted or called for.

    I don't recall ever complaining about people not talking about surfing on here. As can be seen, I like talking about outside topics just as much as surfing, because of the good and smart people that are patrons of this forum. My main issue is the hijacking of an otherwise functional thread by personal attacks or just pure ignorance that grows like wildfire to the peanut gallery surrounding the audience. You can see the difference from one thread to another. There are some on here that progressively veer off course and in a non-confrontational way, then there are others where people bring up cliché anecdotes or start asking what people do for a living and quantifying their free time.

    You have got to be the most un-Spicoli like person to ever use the moniker. Keep writing your essays. You post every single day about some new thing you learned about surfing like you've discovered electricity.

    You want to get this thread back on track, stop responding to everyone who derails it, including me, with a farking essay about how he's wrong and you're right. You don't want to talk about what you do for a living, don't respond to me with an essay about how you're better than me because you work for yourself and you think I'm a corporate slave.

    Yes, swells often come from multiple directions and combine to form waves that are different than waves from swells from only one direction. So, how do you figure out where to sit when the swell is coming in at 3.3987 ft from 175.5 at 9.278s and 2.6983 ft from 110.339 at 15.833s? Simple, you observe and adjust as things demand it. There's no magic formula or tip that is going to answer all of your questions. You can come up with all the formulas and rules you want to, but in reality, the ocean is too fluid, with too many variables to try and model or predict every possible scenario. Go out and surf...have fun, stop overanalyzing it. Or keep overanalyzing it...whatever you want.
