Do my fellow Americans often feel like this?

South America stole our name!

I love it.

 

Yes.

Randy Newman is truly a genius, and one of a kind.

 

Nobody appreciates him.....enough.

A favorite song of mine.   Have seen Randy Newman a few times, a nice show.  Once at Academy of Music, and one of the best concert halls.   Wow, that was a long time ago ...

 

"Sep 23, 1977 — Get the Randy Newman Setlist of the concert at Academy of Music, Philadelphia, PA, USA on "September 23, 1977"

 

Baltimore is another favorite ... sadly, timeless ...

Yes.

Baltimore.

You can play it 100 times and never tire.

This is true.

On the flip side, not exactly a fan of a lot of USA, Baltimore, being one.  Great crab cakes though.

 

Mississippi ... Phil Ochs got this one right.  Damn embarrassing at times.

But, have you ever sailed on the Chesapeake?

 

That might give you a much different perspective....!

Americans talking about themselves again.

 

Sorry.

Not polite.
We speak a different language.

Similar to Americans trying to understand Scouse.

It cannot be done.

Matter fact I have, (not sailed), as couple friends were into boats.   Almost rammed a freighter, in the fog, don't know how he got into the 'lane'.   Finally beached ourselves :cheesy:    He / driver, was hungover/still drunk, and wife had to be at work, after an all nighter.   Needless to say, she didn't make.   After beaching it, we said F'it,  before we killed ourselves or someone else.

 

This same guy, flipped that same speed boat twice, and has the honor of being the first person on the Delaware River to get a DUI while operating, the same boat :cheesy:

 

Wasted youth, though not so young, sadly :coffee1:  

 

Other buds were more into larger yachts.  Damn rich folks.

Influenced by Tom Lehrer no doubt...I think Randy Newman said as much a few times.

Yes.

Many large vessels going up and down the bay.

Are they freighters?

Or, are they mostly tankers?

Not sure.

 

We could google it, I suppose, if we really wanted to know.

Isn't there a footie thread or a full brekkie thread, you could waste your time on, instead of a thread that doesn't interest you ... :coffee1:

 

Obviously, this thread is of interest to him.

Correct you are, was a tanker.  Amazing how close we came to it.  Spook the how out of us.   Thought we were going to bite the big one.   Actually glad we beached it, might have saved us, and or others.

 

Last time I hopped in a boat with him :coffee1:

Sun Oil is down there.

Those tankers move very fast.

Stay out of their lanes.

They are unable to turn on a dime.

How's this for American logic:

 

Q:But, have you ever sailed on the Chesapeake?

 

Matter fact I have, (not sailed), as couple friends were into boats.

 

So you haven't actually sailed in the Cheasapeake  then>

Pretty sure they were anchored, as we were the only idiots cruising in the fog.  Just cruising in the fog, then all of the sudden, a wall of steel in front of you ... :w00t:
