QUOTE OF THE WEEK! - and that leads to dumb arse teenagers sailing around the world then expecting to be saved!!!!

Quote of the week -

JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU CAN SAIL AROUND THE WORLD, DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD! AND IF YOU DO, PAY FOR THE DAMN RESCUE YOURSELF BITCH!

A teenage girl attempting to sail solo around the world was rescued in a remote spot of the Indian Ocean, bringing to a successful conclusion the dramatic bid to save her life.
Sixteen-year-old American Abby Sunderland was picked up from her stricken vessel by a dinghy launched from the French fishing boat Ile de la Reunion.

Sunderland had activated an emergency beacon which started a huge search and rescue operation involving Australia, America and France. Numerous ships became involved in the hunt, as well as a chartered jet which spotted the teenager late on Thursday. Sunderland was able to radio the plane and say report that was fit and had food and water supplies.
The rescue itself was not without incident as rough seas saw the captain of the French boat fall into the water. "He was fished out in difficult conditions," said a statement from the French territory of Reunion Island.
Though the search for Sunderland ended happily, it has caused a debate on the wisdom of such young sailors making dramatic and dangerous journeys. Sunderland was following the achievement of her brother, Zac, who had made the solo journey around the world at the age of 17, becoming the youngest person in the world to do so.
Many critics of Sunderland – and her parents – have criticised the decision to let her go on such a journey. "It's not something that a 16-year-old should be able to decide whether they're capable of doing it. It's potentially irresponsible for the parents," Michael Kalin, junior director of San Francisco's St Francis Yacht Club, told the Associated Press.
And so my bitch is that the family don't want to pay for the damn rescue.
FUCK YOU SHOULD!
WHY THE FUCK SHOULD THE REST OF THE WORLD PAY FOR THE DAMN RESCUE OF YOUR DAMN DAUGHTER!
Take out sailing insurance or something because if you're going to let your bloody 16 year old daughter sail around the damn world then have insurance so when she gets into trouble you can pay for the damn rescue.
Who in the God damn hell do her parents think they are. Clearly they had the money to send her brother off when he went, and they had the money to send her off in a boat, then PAY FOR THE FUCKING RESCUE instead of expecting to the rest of the world to pay.
Australia sent off planes and boats to her rescue. A french boat finally picked her up. I wonder if France want the family to pay.
I heard on the news there was some sort of "universal pay back" that if you got into trouble the rescue wouldn't be paid for because it was expected by the countries to be paid for by the taxpayers.
FUCK THAT!!!!
MY TAX DOLLARS AIN'T PAYING FOR DUMB ARSES LIKE THAT TO GO SAILING AROUND THE WORLD.
PAY UP BITCHES COZ I AIN'T!

  1. I think the important thing here, which you forgot to mention, is that Australia won.

    I don't like Jessica Watson and I hope she goes away to a hole somewhere and dies quietly (I doubt it though, we'll still be seeing her stupid looking face for years to come), but at least she showed the Americans how its really done.

  2. She was an experienced Sailor though this girl..If people had that attitude we wouldn't have had the great explorers we have had or discovered the amazing things we now know about. I'm glad some people are brave enough to do these things

  3. Scoman - agree!

    Carina - if she wants to sail great, but pay for your own rescue if you need it, don't expect other countries to pay for you.
