Shortest fishin trip ever

Post by Mc Tool »

Got the boat out of the shed after winter and did the whole prep thing , changed all oils ( two motors ) greased prop shafts , the whole 9 yards .Took me most of a day.
Backed boat off trailer at the ramp at Riverton estuary ( bit of sideways current ) and found that the steering was seized solid........ever tried to maneuver a boat onto a trailer ...in a river ...with no steering 🀬🀯🀬😠. Was home again before the bait had even thawed outπŸ˜†

No steering? Simply sail around the circumference of the earth and back to the start.

My favourite thing with the flat earth theory is that they believe every other spacial body is spheroid, it's just the earth :lol:

Yes it's pathetic isn't it - as a race we are capable of great leaps forward and also massive regressive backwards steps.

Another thing about flat earth theory that bugs me is that, let's just say it turns out to be true, it wouldn't change anything, you'd still have to get up and go to work and put the kettle on, there is no reason to keep such a thing quiet. So not only is it regressive and plain dumb, it's also got no point in its own narrative.
