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.
Call 911. Yeah, that's easy to do 50 yards out into the water. I suppose they have to say something. "Punch the shark in the snoot" is actually your best last-ditch strategy.

Good catch AVI.
It reminds me of being fresh out of college and seeing some herbicide boxes with instructions printed on the side.
In large print it said, "If you are illiterate or can't read English, get some one to read the instructions/warnings to you."
How you could read that line if you were unable to read remains a mystery to me, but the bureaucrat authors apparently thought it was not a problem. . . . or else they were very stupid. Nah . . . couldn't have been that.
Well, when I go down to the cape, it’s in my boat. Think I’ll stay in the boat. Nah. I’ll still take a brief swim.
In college, sailing at a regatta and wearing a black wetsuit, I flipped a little sailing dinghy just as a pod of Orcas was swimming by. You wouldn’t believe how fast my crew and I got back in and got the boat righted!
