Hey. you are dissing my sexual preference. Some are heterosexual, some homosexual, and then there are the few, the proud--the auto-sexuals.

Re: ER religious preference

I am glad you brought up kayaks in a religious discussion.
Actually, for me paddling my kayak is a religious experience. My mind just sort of shuts off and I paddle without thinking. You have to "surrender" to the wave or you get dumped. I don't think there are any denominations in kayaks, maybe a few- whitewater, sailing, surfing, fishing or birding. But all of them involve reading the waves.
My "preference" is paddling in bays and estuaries.


yakers, single and double Folbot folding kayaks plus one Pygmy Osprey STD made myself (http://www.pygmyboats.com/mall/OSPSTD.asp) Also owned several plastic boats and paddled plenty of others....

Re: ER religious preference

Hmmmm

First the dryersheet as a symbol of "frugal?"

And now the kayak to signal an "exhausted thread?"

A stranger might think this forum - is well - strange!

Heh, heh, heh, heh.

In many forums, any mention of Hitler or Fascists is considered a thread-killer. I like to think we're a little different Kayaks do it quite nicely.

I am with yakers though. Nothing's more relaxing than a little kayaking.

I once heard a song about kayaking that was...

Oh, wait a minute. I'm not supposed to be doing that, am I?

This is a bastardization of "Godwin's Law" - an old (at least in internet terms) Usenet "law". It comes from the early 90's in a time before it became "September all the time" (another Usenet reference - anybody besides me and perhaps Th know what it means?).

Godwin's Law stated nothing about thread ending. What it said was that the longer a thread or discussion goes the closer the probability approaches one that someone or something is compared to Hitler or the Nazis. Again nothing about thread ending.

Re: ER religious preference

Again nothing about thread ending.

So it's OK to continue then?

There was this song I head once about kayaking and it has stuck in my brain ever since. Actually, I don't know for sure that it was really about kayaking. I never picked up the title, and it was an instrumental, so it's hard for me to tell you too much more about it. It very much had a feel to it that was suggestive of the kayaking experience, though. That much I remember clearly.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what song that might have been or what group it might have been that performed it?

It was probably a group that sometimes did instrumentals. Does that help narrow it down a bit?

I think it was a new song at the time I heard it, but I don't recall too well when it was that I heard it.

It wasn't that great a song, but it's the only kayaking song that comes to mind at the moment.

Amen, brother Hyper!

I've been thinking for a long time about organizing a religion around science. It's just another belief system, although one that happens to be based on experimentation rather than dogma.

We're missing a church, though. And cool rituals. And songs. And a pope. I elect Penn and Teller as pope. We can use my house as church (it even has cathedral ceilings). I'm still working on the songs, though. Check back with me.
