I wasn't talking about the merits of the case, but the way Gorsuch handled the questioning. It would have been easy to deal with Franken's point. But Gorsuch looked flustered by a line of questioning that he must have encountered before, and he went all Washington Weasel "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" when asked direct questions about eg. if he'd have liked to be on the road with the guy. That part of Gorsuch's performance, at least, looked weak. These were not difficult questions but he flunked the opportunity to look like a plain-speaking normal individual rather than just another out-of-touch Stepford career-politician-cover-my-ass-at-all-costs type. And I thought you guys hated that type.

Short answer: vanity

Not at all..... I'd call it a keen appreciation for fine art.
Your board is beautiful.... makes sense to keep it that way!

Makes me wonder...... hummmmmm, I may suggest that Rail Saver make a full length deckpad....
one that applies from your stomp pad, to the nose.... with more aggressive texture from standing area backward.

So many beautiful boards out there that deserve to be seen, not covered up!

Nice re-mix... thanks I liked that  ;D
How do you grab pieces like that without having the raw footage?
I'd like to do that, without having to slog through all the raw footage to grab clips I have already used.

Your drone video is fun.... nice to see more of the paddling and surroundings.

Great story HM.... kayadogg is a skilled waterman, so I am not at all surprised to hear he rocked his 1st Maliko!
The fact that he got to do it with you, is a marker in his surfing life.

The Zone bringing people together for SUP adventures and friendship.... priceless  :)

I'm not a registered member of the Seabreeze site. Just a lurker there. The reason I'm not a registered member is because it is mostly, in my opinion, info geared to surfing and downwinding. Very little flat water paddling stuff, if any, which I do a lot of.

And I just can't get into their new site software they changed to. I liked the old Seabreeze site software much better.

Nothing complicated, just the function and purpose of the supreme court--to interpret and clarify legislation passed by congress and verify its constitutionality, and to adjudicate individual cases to reflect the gradual changes in the will of society. Gorsuch isn't a Washington Weasel, he's a judge in Colorado. What's at question is whether judges should be activist and bypass the lawmaking function that serves as one of our constitutional checks and balances and introduce uncertainty as to how judges uphold the law in the future, or whether they should feel free to interpret the law as they choose to. Franken bypassed the purpose and intent of Gorsuch's ruling and made it about emotion and an individual case. Lower court judges can afford to be reasonable and emotional, the higher courts need to worry more about precedence, the law as written, and constitutionality. Gorsuch decision was made in the court of appeals.

The little clip was the least of it. Franken made an ass of himself. Most of the media coverage is equally idiotic. He wasn't condemning the guy to freeze to death.

It's functional as a measure of what a population is doing since it can be self-reported. All the more precise measures require either equipment people are unlikely to have access to or techniques that are too complex or error-prone.
It's functional as a reported change in total mass, not a change in actual health. If a percentage of people conducted more load bearing exercise, that would contribute negatively to an obesity crisis using bmi !

Thanks again Bill.

Today was easily the highlight of all my Maui experiences. Pretty incredible to get the chance to do this run with such good conditions. I felt a little unprepared as I haven't been on a race board in months, had no hydration and had a shitty 3-piece travel paddle. Big thanks to Gavin too for being kind enough to lug a second board with him. What I really got a kick out of was seeing you and Gavin make it look so easy and just take off like it was no big deal. I made sure to take some time to just look around and let it all sink in. Really cool experience today, one that I'll never forget.

If any of you ever get the chance, definitely hit up headmount and hire him for a guided run, there's no better way to experience it.

That's what you get for messing with the Sunova Mafia.  Down undered down under.

Why did Franken make a fool of himself?

In that particular clip I thought Gorsuch looked like the standard career-politician type Washington Weasel. Which was presumably Franken's intent.

Are you right-leaning guys just latching onto any sense of normality given that you have just elected a freak show?

But, again, I'm just an outsider, so may need the finer points of all this intrigue explained to me. I'm not getting why you seem to think Gorsuch is the answer to any of the issues you've raised about the Washington elite, since to me he looks exactly like more of the same. What am I missing?
