    The boat heels over when the wind is blowing hard, so the people go sit on the high side of the boat to help flatten it out. Even if the skipper's weight is tiny compared to the boat, being up on the edge gives your a much better view. Being right in the middle of a big fat boat... It would be hard to see around you.

    Some racing boats go with one big wheel that can be reached from both sides of the boat, but that takes up a lot more space and on a luxury cruiser, your want nice open deck space.

    I had a parking ticket voided because I complained on facebook (It was a bogus parking ticket). :nodding:

    totally random complaint on my facebook page and a friend, who's in the know, forwarded the complaint to his friend who works at the parking authority, who had it voided on the spot. I got facebooks PM's and everything. the squeakiest wheel yo! :slayer:

    You're going to feel pretty bad about yourself when you run into that meter maid while they're working at a garden store to make up for their lost overtime.

    The only thing about that that would make me feel bad would be the fact that one of those shitbags got another job after being fired.

    I would be just fine if all meter maids died overnight.

    I expect failure from most of these mooks, but, H, I count on you to catch my obscure TV/movie references. I am disappoint, especially because that's from one I've seen you reference repeatedly.

    I've decided that my cracked screen makes me look edgy (like pB) and like a badass. I shall not fix it.
