HOW COME THEY DON'T TALKS TO US?

Post by BOAT » Fri Jul 22, 2016 6:51 am

Did you guys know that according to the members list there are over ten thousand people registered to post on this site?!? :o

Did you guys know that 6550 people registered on this site have never posted? Not even once! :(

How come they don't talk to us? Is it because I smell? :?

Maybe they all sold their boats or maybe they wanted one but never got one?

Does that mean there are ten thousand people out there that want a MAC?

(Why do I think about these things? :P Am I weird?)

I had to jump to page 132 (of 201 pages) to find the first member in the list with any posts at all. Before that, all zeroes. Who are all these people?

And BOAT, do you really want to open Pandora's box? :D

I do not know about other people, but talking for myself, I am pretty damn busy reading this forum.

Everyone is pretty nice here except for me - because I am a troll I have really lousy communication skills. But I don't want to scare the people away!!

If you have never posted here and would like to we want to be your friends. (Well, you don't have to be MY friend because I know I'm sort of weird, but there are a lot of other nice people here).

Everyone should get a boat and post on this website. And the NSA and the black helicopters will not come here from Roswell to get you - I know - they have not come for me yet - so it's safe.

I missed a great picture of a cobra helicopter off Camp Pendleton making a mock strafing run on us right off shore of the LCACT Base. If he had pulled the trigger we would have been on the bottom in seconds. (I wandered into their operating area).

Trust me- don't fear the black helicopters - they can't hurt you - it's the 'other' ones that you need to fear. I hope the folks out there are not afraid of the helicopters. They won't shoot you.

I just wanted to know what all those people are thinking, that's all - those folks that read all this stuff but do not comment. They say that people who are really quiet are real smart. I thought they could help us.

Oh well. :(

The answer is simple!!

They are all keel boat owners who just dream of having a boat as flexible and popular as a Mac.

While in open public they freely dismiss the Mac as a poor excuse for a boat, they sit in their darkened bedrooms and crave the freedom and brotherhood being a MAc owner gives one.

OR

As Boat says "He smells" :D
