I tend to over think the problems. Making them much harder than they should be. Do I have an issue I wonder.

Nope, no issue. I checked. What you have is a tendency. It's not treatable, but you can probably learn to live with it.

Maybe it wasn't Google, then.

I swear, when techs go bad, they're as bad as mimes. BTW, we just passed Marcel Marceau's birthday (3/22/23), a day that will forever live in infamy.

Dead mimes are like bad techs; even when they aren't around, not saying anything, you've still got to keep your eye peeled; they might rise again.

It sounds like Hysteria. Her mindless attack mode is starting a little earlier this time; it's a progressive and incurable disease, apparently.

She's so critical of people, and what they are or do; it's insecurity, obviously.

Someone who feels so extremely inadequate that she is compelled to denigrate being a Master, Merchant Marine, as "bilge cleaning" is obviously one not bright enough to be one of the 10% of us who've passed the test on the 1st try. They don't give those tickets away.

She must think it's like passing a driver's test, or something. Nay; I was only able to pass it because I studied my butt off; I'm as proud of it as anything I've ever done, or more. I've got my plotting test chart of Chesapeake Bay framed on my wall. Looks kind of neat, too, if I do say so.

You've seriously been around boats, Abu, and you know what it is.
You know that I'm not just responsible for myself, my vessel, and everyone else aboard; I'm responsible even if I'm on someone else's vessel, if he's not a Captain. You know that I'm responsible for any situation I can SEE, or have knowledge of, on the water, and am required to render all assistance possible.

You know about Rule #7, which says that even if I and my vessel are completely legal, and I've followed every rule and reg, and good and accepted practice, I can still be held liable at an inquest if I've not done everything POSSIBLE to bring any given situation to a favorable outcome.

Remember, Hysteria, if anyone's ever dumb enough to take the heavy responsibility of ever letting one so clueless as you anywhere near his vessel, sit down, shut up, pull your head out of your butt, and face the pointy end; the view's better.

You might put on a PFD, too, in the likely event that he gets so sick of your crap that he throws you overboard, just as the mods do.

What's that new name? BubbleHeadVicious? Whatever, it doesn't readily stick in my mind; it's more like it sticks to my feet.

But they do. It's just marketed under a different name.

The wonder of SCIENCE!! It seems that whenever there's an intractable problem, some wizard will come up with JUST the right solution!

Gotta get me a case.

Yup. I've known people who have failed the test several times. It's not for dummies.
