Off the Deep End

Just how off the deep end must one be to WANT to join that sub-section?

Every time I go to the doctors I get a jacket, a straight one. It makes me feel special because I get to hug myself.

You gotta be way out there, Janice. I don't think you're that close to the edge yet.

Seaweed is 23' long and I've lived aboard her since 2008. And I'm on my second engine swap in a year. There are sanity issues involved, but I'm having too much fun to care.

Well, if you can handle that, OTDE would be like a walk in the park to you!

I'll leave you boys to your playground... For now. Enjoy.

It was a passing thought, easily smothered by sangria.

Actually it's fox grape wine, made by a friend. All that grape picking was worth it. Totally worth it.



The only problem is I wish the bottle was smaller.

I must admit when I saw you had posted in OTDE Janice, I thought good god what's she doing in that den of vipers.

Perhaps you have ventured in to the dark side much as the 'Lady with the Lamp' did all those years ago. From now on I will call you Florence.

I'm going to stick with the main forum... There is a nice tranquility about Seaweed and I like it.

And I'm not familiar with Lady with the Lamp nor Florence. (shrugs)

Can someone please tell me the story on OTDE. I've seen the heading but when you click on it the message is it is empty.

Florence Nightingale;" She came to prominence while serving as a manager of nurses trained by her during the Crimean War, where she organised the tending to wounded soldiers.[1] She gave nursing a highly favourable reputation and became an icon of Victorian culture, especially in the persona of "The Lady with the Lamp" making rounds of wounded soldiers at night" (Wilkpedia)

The sad truth is that Off The Deep End is actually quite shallow.

Off The Deep End is a sub-section under the Off Topic section. One needs to opt-in to enter. It's a no-holds-barred approach to countless futile attempts to change another of his long-held beliefs, positions and opinions. Some are there to bait the others and a few unsuspecting souls end up being the prey as they cannot resist the chance to bite.

My dad used to say "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

I'll probably regret asking this... but how does one opt in? Is it an invite only kind of thing?

You'll need to be issued a set of these before being allowed to start a thread in the OTDE section.

I suspect actually starting a thread would be a grave mistake. No, it's more a morbid curiosity. I wanna see what's happening behind that curtain...
