A friend said that she was proud of the fact that her husband finally has a pair of big balls. (Spherical fenders for going through locks.)

DWHatty probably would not tell you, but he polishes Walt's balls every year.

I've got four pink balls, two small and two medium; two on each side (and that's not counting the phallic-shaped.) What does that make me?

I freely admit it.

There are actually four of them and two, while not pink, have red (not Breton Red) rings around them. And, yes, I do enjoy polishing them annually.

They were a nice gift from, and remind me of, our absent from TF Walt (aka Seahorse II).

Hey Al and the rest of you San Frannys. I just found a map of your area. Is it accurate?

Manure... An interesting fact

Manure : In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything
had to be transported by ship and it was also before
the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large
shipments of manure were quite common.


It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a
lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it,
not only did it become heavier, but the process of
fermentation began again, of which a by product is
methane gas of course.


As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can
see what could (and did) happen.Methane began to
build up below decks and the first time someone came
below at night with a lantern, BOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it
was determined just what was happening

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped
with the instruction ' Stow high in transit ' on them, which
meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower
decks so that any water that came into the hold would not
touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.
Thus evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ', (Stow High In Transit)
which has come down through the centuries and is in
use to this very day.


You probably did not know the true history of this word.

Neither did I, .....I had always thought it was a golf term

It definitely is a modern golf term. I've used it on the rare occasions that I have essayed the "good walk spoiled".

As to the etymology of the word S.H.I.T., I like your humorous version but, alas, it may not be correct.

Snopes
darn it.

Then there is SHSU, Sam Houston State University, located in Huntsville, Texas. It was founded in 1879 as Sam Houston Normal Institute. In 1923 it became Sam Houston State Teacher's College. In 1965, it became Sam Houston State College. Then in 1967, it became Sam Houston State University. All seems rather straightforward.

However, there continued to be talk of changing it's name again. In fact the talk was so serious over several decades within the Texas State University Systemís Board of Regents, that in 2007 the Texas Legislature finally passed House Bill 1418 preventing the regents from changing the name to Sam Houston Institute of Technology.

Shit is one of the minor boat words, usually used by the captain shortly after moving the throttle lever fully forward instead of the gear lever while backing, the intention being to halt reverse progress by moving the gear lever into forward.

A major boat word would be "Oh F***!" Which would be normally used when the dinghy with the brand new 15 horse Yamaha outboard, mounted on the swim grid, is used to halt rearward progress.

I suspected that, but I just found that version of the origin of the word very funny. ...sent to me by my golfing brother

A husband and wife are shopping in their local store. The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in the cart.

"What do you think you're doing?" asks the wife.

"They're on sale, only $10 for 24 cans" he replies.

"Put them back, we can't afford them", demands the wife.

They carry on with their shopping. A few aisles farther on, the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

"What do you think you're doing?" asks the husband.

"It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful," replies the wife.

Her husband retorts, "So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it's half the price."

Greetings,
The "Diesel smell in boat" thread reminded me of this:
Two young fellows (friends) went to a job interview.
When asked about previous experience, the first young man said Diesel Fitter. He was hired @ $20/hr.
The second young man recounted his experience as sewing the elastic bands on the tops of panty hose. He was hired @ $10/hr.
After the interviews, the two young men compared notes. The second young man immediately went back to the interviewer and asked why the first guy was getting 2X his salary.
The interviewer said the first guy was in a higher paying job category.
Second guy said nonsense. That first guy worked on the end of my panty hose line as quality control. He would pick up a finished pair of panty hose stretch the elastic and say "Yep, diesel fitter...

I've torn out my alarm system & de-registered from the Neighborhood Watch.
I've got two Pakistani flags raised in my front garden, one at each corner and the black flag of ISIS in the center.
The local police, Sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and other agencies are all watching my house 24/7.

I've never felt safer
