I can't do it as fast as this guy,

Yeah that's pretty fast.  But this:



You can't do any of that with a Canoe, especially an outrigger.

but the water here is so warm I'm never in a hurry.

So faster not important?

You are the one who asked "What happens when you tip over?" I showed you how people tip the boat back upright. No big deal. And even you know that it's classic obfuscation and dishonest argumentation to make something of the fact that I said being able to move faster is an advantage, and that I cannot put a canoe upright as fast as an experienced racer.

The fact that outrigger canoes cannot roll the way kayaks can is irrelevant. But FWIW, it takes an extremely experienced, skillful, and strong kayaker to roll a kayak and very few kayakers can do it, whereas any canoe paddler can put an OC1 or OC2 upright after a huli, and only a little bit of training for a team to put an OC6 upright after a huli. I've never been able to roll a kayak, after paddling kayaks for years. I could put an OC1 or 2 upright the first time I was ever in one. With an OC6 it's a team effort but none of the roles is difficult or requires special strength or skill. In fact, even without training, just directed by their captain, an OC6 crew can right their canoe.

P.S. And you bring up this whole stupid argument, totally irrelevant to the thread topic, just because I said that Woody Allen movies are something else you and I disagree about. A comment relevant to the topic of movies. So you start an argument about kayaks vs. canoes. Sheesh!

Irrelevant to you because it's not a quality you value in a boat. That's the whole point: you're assuming that the qualities you value in a boat are the important/relevant ones and drawing your conclusion on that basis.  It's begging the question.

...or goes on to something else.

How's that?

Certainly covers nearly all the bases!

Yeah, I forgot he's not one for happy endings, so to speak. SPOILERS

In Love & Death he's executed at the end; in Annie Hall she finds someone else. I don't remember how Sleeper ended.

Because you claimed you had finally found something you disagreed with me on more than diet and nutrition, and I knew there was probably another thing.

That's all.

I was making a light-hearted comment, which was on-topic because it was about movies, and was intended to be friendly, and you turned it into an off-topic argument.

Sonic The Hedgehog 8/10

Not just the best videogame movie, a really good and enjoyable kids movie!
Theres a joke very early on that lets you know this is very much a kids movie and with that calibration I had an absolute blast!
Jim Carrey is as funny as he was in Ace Ventura (or as not funny if you didnt like that film), Sonic himself is really funny and endearing.
There were moments where the audience cheered, which is not a thing that really happens outside of America and all in all, I highly recommend it if you just want an amusing and energetic bit of brain fluff.

I consider the discussion of the relative merits of canoeing and kayaking to be light hearted. 

To bring it back to movies, Deliverence would been a much different movie if they were in Kayaks instead of canoes.
