We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I don't think that guy was stuck in a tsunami. Looked more like Laird Hamilton or one of the other pro big wave surfers doing the typical tow-in technique (because nobody can paddle fast enough to get on top of that wave). Check out Riding Giants if you liked the Youtube clip. Do yourself a favor though and check it out in 1080 hi-def. Ridiculously beautiful film. Amazing athletes too.
