You just found out? Do you always buy things without taking a minute to learn something about what you're buying?

Hmnnn...I've got a nice bridge that would be just perfect for someone like you. It's located in Brooklyn, has a lot of historical value, and it's very pretty.

And you can get there by canal and river!

Oh, yeah...I've got a box of yellow ribbons for sale, too! A fine vessel like yours just isn't complete without a yellow ribbon, I always say. Ten % discount on a gross, too!

You wouldn't want to be seen as less patriotic than the boater in the next berth, would you?

So what? Every year they publicly state, in several conveniently accessable places, what their hours, which often changed, in the 9 yrs I worked on the canals, will be, so that the wisely curious can make informed decisions. And now you complain because you weren't wise enough to investigate what you were buying, before buying it, and you blame NYS for your failure to do so.

There are plenty of very real, and very important, things to blame NYS government for, without going full-bore whiney ridiculous.

I'm guessing that I don't even have to ask if you similarly ignore the "Notices to Mariners" which the Canal Corp. also regularly publishes.

Your space bar is stuck, and your caps and punctuation keys, and your spell checker, don't work . I know...you don't have to say it...it's NYS's fault, and they should fix them, because it's ruining your life.

What has any of that to do with the fact that you bought something which you didn't take a minute to become informed about, when the info was readily available to all, and then complained that you were uninformed?

So...any plans to get the keyboard fixed? My advice is to just go to Walmart, spend the $10, and be done with it. Of course, I know the budget might be a little tight this week, what with you being out the $75.

Then there's always "Plan B": I'll bet you can find a keyboard way better than yours just by cruising on trash day.

What are your boating plans for the year? Cocktails at the dock, while shooting carp with 00 buck (I like to call 'em "docktails")? And the 00, I call "Sushi Master".

A nice yellow ribbon is just the accessory for that, mate! A little trade secret: I pulled most of them off trees, stop signs, people's cars, little kids' bikes, and four of them, off a stray Labrador retriever, even. No, I didn't ask the pooch...some things are better left private. So, for you, how about a 40% discount? And it's a guaranteed discount; I'll guarantee it even before we've talked price!

You'd better hurry, though. I heard that obama glanced up at the mantle, noticed that he had a Peace Prize (why the figurine was holding a bowling ball, we'll never know), and now he's going to end all the wars. Last chance!

Why would I need help with your persecution complex?

We use the big toe to push off when walking. Go ahead and take a step. Now slow it done. You should notice something unique about your big toe: it is the last part of the foot to leave the ground. This final push that the big toe provides is very helpful when we are walking quickly or when we want to accelerate. It helps us to jump and to sprint. Of course,

We all pick up emotional burdens of varying weights and sizes while growing through life. Many eventually fall by the wayside, some we learn to live with, while others are more like a thorn in one's heart, or worse, causing enough pain and anguish to impact the quality of life. It is always worthwhile to attempt minimizing or eliminating such emotional impediments to living a happier life, though for many people the need to do so is vital to being able to comfortably move forward in life at all.
