RE: Good surf spots for begginers on Molokai and Lanai?« on: February 29 2008 06:02:00 »
Everything you learned in school was wrong. Don't believe me? Take this test: Name the nine planets that orbit the Sun.
WRONG!! It was a trick question, there are now (at least) eleven planets that orbit the sun. They have always been there, but that is not what I learned in school. What's my point? Discover for yourself, don't trust anything you hear and only half of what you see. So Teacher2, you have to sail a raft from west to east to see if you are correct, there is no other way. I'm not bumping your profession, I'm just saying education is fluid and what is true today will not be true tomorrow. ALOHA.

AAAw, Gaaw! TTB, you from Arkansaw? Anaeone can tell you that the ancestors 'rafted', not 'sailed'; the ancient mariners from Peru where first surf craft evolved from reeds washed down from Lake Titicaca (don't get excited, Tom!) were carried to the tropical Polynesia by currents, although there was some migration from Asian Homolopithecus 'types', aka, Java Man with similar rafts to Melanasia (not whitesia). Major currents flow WEST. Whitey did make the move from barrel-fest shores of Thurso to Iceland and Martha's Vineyard to Ruggles though! I still need a drink, global after THIS sesh'.

OK, let's kick this subject to death. There were multiple migrations across the Pacific, some from Peru and others jumping across the islands in the South Pacific. Even multiple migrations into Hawaii, the ali'i were following earlier migration paths. The "natives" of Hawaii who greeted the ali'i were smaller and browner than the royalty who subjugated them. Hence the Menehunes legend.
As far as your espoused etymology: Wasn't there a big cloth thing on Kon-Tiki that caught the wind and helped propel the craft across the ocean? How about "steered" the raft, would that be ok with you? No, I've never been to Arkansas, but "show me" is a good motto.

TTB- you may have a career as a stand-up (comedian, not prone sponge bob!); cloth thing, LOL! You seem to understand current lines are very narrow (like tom,s mind) and very easy to end up in prevalent doldrums, so, as Obama did eloquently in this week's debate, I will conceed to your stumbling unto, 'sailing' and steering in navigating ocean routes. But, what the hell, are you a 'creationist'? Menehunes, Keebler elves, huh? Maybeeee, they were Asiatic as my expounding last post. But, I agree, nuf' said and owe you a stiff one (no, not tom,s fav!).
racism is a relaity in hawaii« Reply #5 on: April 07 2010 08:04:177 »
as you'll see, racism is always right below the surface in hawaii. mostly because of the crummy educational system, but also because there are some plain stupid people there.
the surf on lanai and molokai is inferior to the other islands. hard to get to and hit or miss. molokai is an odd case of economic decline...that may explain the hostility. welfare makes people feel inadequate when they cannot provide for themselves and their families.
that said if you don't need a lot of touristy type activities have a look. if it sucks yo can hop on aplane and be on another island in 45 minutes,

Thanks for your hostility warning. Ya'll have fun on your islands of hate.
Very ugly words spread here. Why claim hawaii is beautiful? Lots of places WERE beautiful decades ago. Hawaii is lost to the painful survivors still claiming it will recover. Meanwhile you have too much congestion and piles of beach bums bitching about how terrible things are on your polluted island. Not interested. Same story happened many places before. Plenty more peaceful places to explore on this planet, but don't bring your stupidity.
Good bye Hawaii

Is this really how it is in hawaii? I mean do the locals really hate everyone else? I am moving to Molokai to learn sustainable farming on the islands and I and really interested in surfing. I skate and snowboard and surfing just seems like the ultimate ride and I plan on getting on a surf board soon as i land on the islands. I just dont see why the locals can hate everyone that isn't one of them. how do u have a good time when you are always being defensive and trying to intimidate outsiders. Technically everyone on the island has outsiders in their family. stop fucking hating guys

i love message boards. everyone is soo tough! i think Hawaii is like any small town in america some of the locals are nice and friendly and some just don't like outsiders. Hawaii is a far cry from what it used to be. Hawaii has been through a lot from it's annexation to present day, it has been very hard for local people and it's sad what happened.
on the other hand they do enjoy some of the fruit of the good ol' u.s. of a. it's a shame that there couldn't have been a better way for it to progress. what's done is done and most of what was done happened before any of us got here or this message board existed!
if the amount of energy people spent on misguided anger was focused on betering their situation then I imagine there really would be enough Aloha for all of us!
