WHY TDI?

the DUI Law is the same here, anything with wheels on it that moves including boats, you can loose your license for operation while drinking. Which takes the fun out of eveything... :(

Here in the land of 10,000 lakes (Minnesota has 11,000) there are political activists trying to make the laws against beer on a boat more harsh than in a car. This newest head of MADD has the idea that driving a boat is much harder than driving a car, so they must protect us from ourselves. If you want a good lesson in hypocrisy, read his story - He's not a mother, and his kid was killed by a drunk driver without a license because of many many DUI's - so no law could have changed the outcome of his kid because such drunks don't care about the law and demonstrate it.

Don't think its bad to drink beer on my slow float boat with friends - If I get to drunk, let my 12 year old son drive. Hey, that's against the law now too. Man, where are we going ?

i love how we can't swear on this forum but everyone glamorizes alcohol consumption.  maybe instead of kids getting drunk and dying, we could let them swear. :idea:

you can swear on this forum if you want. however it is frowned upon. Talking about something that is legal in a civilized manor is not wrong is it?

Everyone consumes alcohol, sadly for you suckers in the states you gotta wait till your 21... legally of course.. :P I don't think talking of consuming alcohol on lawn mowers or boats is at all bad. No-ones boasting driving a car.. getting a DUI on a lawn tractor doing the speed of smell is ridiculous.. same for a canoe.. you can drown just as easy sober...

It all boils down to this...  People in general are getting dumber..   I blame Legos.. But really if the majority of people had to survive without someone telling them what they had to and shouldn't do they'd be screwed...  I can only hope that this "Global Economic Crisis" that the media keeps jamming down our throats will spark some of that stuff that is mis labeled as "Common Sense" and maybe bring people down a peg or two as well...    

Now days Common Sense would be somthing like this:
My car is 28 Years old and needs new tires...  OMG I must go out and buy a new car I can't afford that will maybe last till I might somedya be able to pay it off..  That will be earth friendly too..   I will pollute less..  (Exclude the amount of resources consumed to make that new car, and recycle the old one)

Uncommon Sense (as it should be labeled):
My Car is 28 Years old.. Still runs okay, looks like crap though, and it needs tires..   Score!! 4 tires on Craigslist that ought to get me another year for $50...  (Resources consumed?  One gallon of stinky ole fryer oil!)

Maybe we need a rant and rave forum on here..   :twisted:
