.....and if I ever met anyone who in all seriousness tried to suggest we're not fucking up this planet, I would be hard put not to punch him or her as hard as I could in the face.
Would you hit me based on how I have shown your arguments to be, by and large, inaccurate? If so, then you would be resorting to violence out of ignorance. Would that look bad on your part, or not, to you and others observing?
No, I'd do that freely for using socks on a sandy beach and if Liquid Force were the brand I represented for hitting a slider with a surf board. :lol:

Must be time for prayers now isn't it? How is the great being in the sky doing it for you? Didn't exactly show you how to spell style did he? :lol:

As to the first part of your response - Just let me know when you make it to the US. I am sure you are a much nicer guy in person than when hiding behind several different screen names. I would happily give you a chance to ride the slider with my board. I may even have a spare pair of booties for you to use.

For the second part of your response - I feel unfortunate to share some of your views, though I do so in a much less "I am right and everyone else is wrong" way. I guess I believe in the saying "to each his own". And I encourage others to have their own opinions, beliefs, and even superstitions. It is too bad that some of humanity will always have extreme views on both sides.

But I cannot help feeling that all this "religion/deism" bashing is more of a call for help on your part. I have a hard time figuring out where you were triggered by a reference to my beliefs in my previous posts. Though it does seem life has dealt you a bad hand. Unfortunately, my views are more aligned with your stated views on that subject. So if you are here actually hoping for some prayers, you are barking up the wrong tree with your reference to me. I would suggest counseling.

Over all, it is good you are here, if for nothing else than to set the bar low and let everyone know the quality of person that Core supports.

Who admitted China to WTO and sold you down the river?

And if you think it doesn't matter, this summer here in supposedly cold foggy and windy England, saw some kite suppliers saying their business was 60% down according to my pal who runs iksurf magazine, this thanks to the most windless and hottest summer on record. Even our own sales stalled for the first time in the four years since we re-engaged after the Slingshot drama, this August did not exceed last August and numbers were down.

UK figures are unlikely to affect world kite prices, but as we all know, it's a global village, numbers are not exactly soaring away given the maturity of the market, so any decline in numbers equals price hikes which none of us want. Kite prices have gone beyond the point that any of us feel really comfortable about and you only have to look at what happened with windsurfing business, higher prices equals fewer people equals even higher prices. That's without considering the liklihood of a tariff war and its effect on us.

So all in all, a gloomy outlook without wishing to further ruin your monday morning too much. :-?
