Rules of Nature

*Taken from journal entries in late December of 2012*

I'm like many of you who are worried that the sea otters by the rock end up getting shot for something I may have said or wrote.
     Strangely enough, for as many times I've driven by those little rats and wondered why nobody killed them yet, I'm not exactly one to want to see them gone.
     Never the less, I've got this freaky imagination going on in my head that say I'm actually hearing the term, "building a cage."
     Kinna strange thinking that others are thinking about ways of taking back their harbour and not getting rid of the few that are here.

I think one of the best thing I've ever done for fishermen, is compare the fisherman and sea lion to the farmer and the crow. Everyone has grown up knowing about farmers trying to get rid of the pest, but even after putting a bounty on them commonly, they still can't kill the last crow and the fisherman should have the right to protect their crops as well.

Fifteen years ago I worked in a state run fish hatchery. But back then, it was costing the state tax payers about $ 4.50 per baby fish they released. It's sad to know that most of them probably ended up in the belly of a sea-lion instead of the floor of a fisherman's boat. Just to put you into perspective as to how many would actually get caught. Just the over flow, the ones that get away from the hatchery while still being raised. End up coming up stream to the gates of the hatcher the next year banging on the gates because they were not caught. The same guys who raised them, have to gaff them and toss them into plastic fork lift bens for the dog and cat food manufactures who pay $1.00 for the full grown salmon. (Yeah, we are loosing $3.50 per fish make cat food. Sea lions get the rest. While most of us can only afford to buy wormy bottom fish.) Oh, yeah, they can get more eggs than they can hatch out of a few fish. Sad to see those creeks full of rotting salmon.

Well, if you want my two cents worth of advice of what I thing should be done around here, I'll give you a few ground rules for the way I happen to think it should work.
     
     First off I guess would to make a pin off area over buy where they live. But then the restaurants and fish processors would have to help furnish fish scraps or bait food and such to feed them because if you don't add to their food supply, the natural food supply inside the pin will dry up and they would eventually starve.
     I think it would even be possible for the tourist to help pay for the bait feed to them, but there would have to be fencing to assure that the public only feeds them a safe and balance diet provided by a responsible source.
     (It would probably have to be two pins or two pins in one or dividable because somewhere down the line, you would have to move them for maintenance purposes or natural sea-life movement or growth. (Star fish, seaweed and crabs.)

Then those harbour seals or sea lions, or what ever you call them. You kill them and chop them up and either use them as crab bait or just dump them overboard in areas where the crab are know to be.
     However, I think the most important part of of getting rid of the remains of these varments, whether you dump or use the remains as crab bait, -it must be done at least 20 miles out from shore - which is a very important detail I explain below....
     See, the reason I say this is, that I know in Washington, fisherman have told me that sharks start coming up in their nets at about thirteen miles out. So if we're going to attract sharks anywhere, we would like to be attracting them farther away. With my plan, we get rid of the very things that have been robbing our table and feeding what we put on our table. By eliminating the sea lions from our populous areas dominated by human beings, the sharks that are known to feed on seal lions and habour seals will stop looking for their food around human beings. The sharks will naturally retreat to to those far of rocks and islands that have nothing but sea-lions and seagulls on them. Those places where it would be too much work for us to cage a dead one up and give it a taxi ride out twenty miles to feed crabs. The sharks will go back to their proper place along with the habour seals as it would be in a more realistic natural environment.
     By over protection of all these animals that have been held in check in the past, we've invited the black bare into town and we all know, the black bear and humans, should not plan on using the same swimming pool.(And if I can find my camera, I'll post the latest shark warning I saw at the "Pit" a few days ago.)
     See, the deal is-we need to dump shark food, but make sure it actually makes it to the crabs on the bottom. (You could call it fertilizing the crops.)
     The remains might want to float but if they wire the meat into cages having openings only big enough to let the crabs get to the meat but still small enough to keep sharks from getting to it.
     I feel that fisherman should have the right to fatten up their crab with the very varment that eat their salmon.
     Taking the remains to to a land fill would be a waste of crab meat as far as I'm concerned and if you start dumping shark food anywhere near shore, well you get the picture.
     Another reason my crab feeder cages are such an important idea. If you take a look at those old movies taken on whaling boats, you may be as amazed as I was when I saw that the whalers had to battle wildly thrashing sharks, just to get the whales into the boat. The sharks were able to take a good portion of the meat before they could get the dead whale into their boat. You can bet back in those days, sharks identified whaling boats as humans supplying them with food and the sharks probably fallowed the boats everywhere they went. Well, here is what we've got going on. We've got a fishermen who piss on the deck of their boat because they know not to fall overboard doing so. The boat's deck and everything on it ends up getting the sent of humans on it. A sea line comes up in the net, they give it a baseball bat up side the head and roll it over board. And if their are any sharks in the area, smelling fish blood and a little human yearn mixed in with it, they get the picture that some humans in a boat are feeding them. Makes for a lazy shark doesn't it?
     Well, I like any other surfer, when the old wet suit is getting old with all the leaks and all, a good ol piss will give us the warmth to catch a few more. However, we're also making us smell like a fishing boat at the same time and I think you can sum up the rest.
     You can ask any of those communities that have problems with the black bear in their back yards, and I'm sure they will tell you that the problem started when the bears started showing up at their local dump.
     Having said that, I hope you can understand why we should let fishermen have proper feeder cages in the crab fields.
     As for the so called rare sea otters out there. I think the fishermen should have the right to determine when and where they poise a threat to their livelihood. They should give animal lovers the opportunity to move them to either sanctuaries that poise less of a threat, (if even possible,)to the fishing industry - chosen by fisherman - if even possible, or caged up and hauled of to some zoo somewhere.
     I'm sure sea lions and harbour seals are like pigeons; all you have to do is shoot down a few every once in awhile and they figure out real quick that hanging around over you work isn't going to happen.

And there are a few of us who feel the media deserves a few brownie points for toning down the coverage on these firemen we lost in New York. I'm sure there are many out there who want to say we feel you. We don't need the media to show how disturbing it is to all of us. We just can't be giving the disturbed what they want when all we want is the facts.

And golly gee; I actually think I coined a term. People seem to like the term Realistic Natural Environment.
     I'm sure that many of us will agree that so many of these animals lovers have simply forgot that the human beings as a species of its own, play a heavy part of the eco-system. We need to be factored into the whole food chain bit. Not only to be factored in but to manage our role in it as it always has over the century in the past. You just can't take us out of the picture, just because you may feel that if an animal goes extinct, (which they have always doe,) that the end of the world will come.
     We'll we are humans, the dominate species and we are the ones who are suppose to dominate. We are the ones at the top of the food chain and we are the ones who are responsible (and smart enough) to chart the course to survival.
     Your Gods have given everything we need to survive and prosper, all we need to do is make it possible.

December 27th, 2012 :
Rule 25

Sounds like there had been concessions from both sides of the dock. The Animal Lovers liked the idea of the traps and that I came down on the fishermen as another part of the problem we have with Sharks.
     The Animal Activist realize that having shark bait laying around on the dock of the Harbour only invites sharks to move closer to humans.

And just as I thought all along, there were those who found one of the holes I left in the Otter pin idea. Just as I figured from the get go but refrained from mentioning it, because of the expense involved.
     The better idea is that we should have three pins for the Otters so that they wouldn't have to move their home inside the rocks. It would be better is to have two alternate cages connected to a home base area so their home wouldn't have to be moved when they shut down one of the pins for regrowth.

And concessions on the fisherman's part is that certain islands have been named as what should be considered safe havens for the Sea Otters that should be relocated.
      It makes sense because, if they are not on the main land, they can't just move from one area to another so easily. And from what I gather, it's hard to cultivate albacore on distant islands because of poachers and the lack of fellow fishermen to look after each other's cultivation.

From what I hear the fisherman sure didn't have to do much to come up with a few feeders. Apparently two different sized crab traps work quit well and it only took swapping out the funnels for panels with opening just big enough for the crabs to go both in and out. A couple brackets on the bottom of the big cage to hold up the smaller one from the bottom is the only substantial parts to be made, which isn't much.

And there are many of us, wondering, just how stupid some of these fishermen/surfers feel about now. Turning themselves into Shark bait.
     Well it didn't take long before people started to put two and two together and realized that pissing on the deck isn't the only problem, and it being one that nobody is about to change. We realize that the problem is also the the sport fishermen as well as the fish possessor ships that dump tons of fish scrap back into the sea. All of this is done wondering if such scraps will even hit the ocean floor. If not, it's a good chance that they are feeding sharks with fish guts with a scent of human beings attached.
     And with crab feeders, there would be nothing wrong with the scent of humans on fish waste because the sharks would associate the smell of humans as a smell that doesn't add up to food, even if it's two feet in front of them.

And another plus for Crab feeders. I'm willing to bet that if the inner cage is elevated off the bottom of the outter cage a bit, it would take two or three layers of crab before they can actually reach the food. Until then, there are a lot of us who think that Rock Cod will be hitting on the food until the crabs fill the cage.

Also the idea of using bio-degradable paper to line the inside cage is a good way of sending down fish guts from fish processors, because it hold smaller remains inside and the crabs would have no problem braking though the paper once it is on the ocean floor.
     From what it sounds like, there are some fishermen giving the cages a go today. I bet they will be putting a camera down there to watch what happens.
     Well dah, you feed them, they grow faster and get bigger. It's also a pretty good way of figuring out where the crab are running during the off season. That alone will save tons of fuel when they do go crabbing.

December 27th, 2012 PM UpDate :
Rule 25

I get it.
     I'm a restaurant owner. Specializing in sea food of course. Got this charter boat two and I have a welder out back because on those times of the year, I'd hope there was some kind of crab season to pay the bills because most of the time you came only get income from people who will pay to catch bottom fish. (Almost not worth the fuel half the time. After thirty miles, forget it. It has to be salmon or tuna that puts the poles in line.
     Hell, he's just hopes the cost of the boat pays for itself and provides a good source of supply for his restaurant that so happen to have specials on what ever he is bringing over the side of the boat at times. (Might even have a little fish and chip stand, to batter up some of the reliable source of rock cod.
      Anyway, the who cage inside, another cage thingy bop think Sunnyside talked about, was something he could do real easy since he had kept a welder out back for making crap pots and what not. Hell, he'd already had two sizes that would do just about right.

       (Heck, isn't it all about the fact that if a shark can't keep moving forward, it can't really go where a fish can go?)
This guy figures out that it would only take a few brackets to hold one crab tape inside another. And the opening on the ends has to be changed out, but you know fishermen the stainless steal netting they do on crab traps, it took only a few minutes because they are pretty easy to make compared to the funnel type.

Anyhow, the pathetic thing about the hole ordeal was that he didn't have a dead sea line to put in it. However, he did have almost two garbage cans of fish and meat scrape to dump inthere, just to check it out.

       (I bet he figured out some butcher paper would work good for a liner)

     Any how his restaurant/charter boat owner, sends his new contraption out on his charter boat in the morning.
     Guess he had his crew take it along on the trip up toward Cambria and told the crew to dump it along with the fish scrape they produced during the trip about an hour before turn around time; then pick it up on the way back .
     Guess it was empty..

Now it didn't take long before this guy figures he might be able to cut back from three dumpster per week to only two. And that holding back on the bones is a good idea, because otherwise you end up with empty cage except for some bones.

Anyhow, you get the picture by now.

Update Dec.28.12
      However, it sounds like our friends down in Australia had a little bit more excitement. A few of those guys got to experience a battle with sharks as the lowered the feeder. I guess, some guys had to beef up the doors a bit with some coat hangers or something like that before they could have a second go at it. Any how, I sounds like they had them trained in about an hour. Guess the sharks lost and desire to even attack what had drove them crazy an hour before.

Yeah, it's probably like when your mother tried to reheat a Big Mac and she didn't remove all the aluminium foil. But in the sharks case, it probably didn't go over so well on the dental work.
     I'm like many of you with the next question being: I'm wondering how long they will remember, that people scented food just isn't going to happen?
     Now if we could get those idiot divers to quit feeding them, we'd be alright. Eventually after we get the feeders perfected and the sharks trained, it might be in our best interest to move them in closer once we determine that were not causing any problems with it. (I'm worried about the bones. I think it would be wise to send them to landfills other wise we could be creating a problem with them unless they just happen to be beneficial. I happen to think it would happen to depend on the type of ocean floor.)
     I feel that some day we will not have to be any more alarmed to see a shark than we do when we see a dolphin around us. (But believe me when I say, I'll always prefer the dolphin.)

And oh, I keep thinking about these guys who didn't think about putting a hole in the top for the fish to get out once the crabs start blocking the way out.
     Yeah, you got what we call turmoil in a box down there.

And may of you figured out by now:
     Fishermen, piss on the deck all day and night in some cases. They come back to the docks, and fire up the water hose to wash the boat down to get rid of the corrosive salt water reside, and fish gut and what ever. At the same time they are washing their piss over the side and onto the docks. The harbor seals hope up onto the dock at night. They pick up the sent of human piss and take it back into the water the next morning. The sharks can smell those harbor seal and you can bet they would be inside the harbour looking for them if the water was the same temperature as outside the harbour. But instead they have been hanging around, just waiting for them to come out into the colder water. Eventually they will get one and it will have the same human piss sent as the surfer who is surfing the pit.
      Doesn't take long to figure out, you put two and two together and you can realize that with things the way as they have been, it's inevitable that a a shark attack there is bound to happen sooner or later.

I hope those communities with problems with black bears learn something from this. That if you can't figure out how to keep the bears out of your garbage dump, you'll never be able to keep them out of of your town.
     However, this is where the comparisons should end. Because you can't smell a shark, you can't hear a shark, you can't see the shark coming, therefore I seriously doubt you could kill the last one.
     I'm pretty sure they've been around here before us and I wouldn't doubt they would be around here even if we were gone. They are pretty much the king of their domain, the top of the food chain in the sea
     All we can to is learn how to manage their domain - smartly.

Rule Number 77 & 100

I wouldn't advise anyone who thinks they should try what I heard those crazy Aussies did.
     
     I don't think testing out my theory is such a good idea right now.
     I for one don't think I could count the sharks hanging around, and with the way those Aussies like to party, I wouldn't trust their ability to count past five at times.

But if you think about it. I'm betting on the fact that I say we could keep a few sea Otters as pets, is actually saying that even if the sharks are attracted to some smell in the area, it won't be us.

I don't know who the hell they are, but some shark specialist are trying to say that it would take about one year from the time proper feeders are commonly used and proper measures are in place to keep the shark food chain in check, to make the sharks safer for all of us.
     Get this: apparently these guys who for what ever I think, know jack shit about a sharks brain, they say it will probably take about a year for a shark to forget that human scent is a part of its food chain.
     So there, if you want to play games with sharks, you better be better than I am at remembering which shark is which.

I have to say, I shed a happy tear this morning. It was for the parents who drop off their kids at the beach for their surf session. The idea that a few of those parents have just avoided a travesty before it happened and they should no longer have to worry about it.
     Aman

And oh, I may be verifiability insane if there has not been anyone showing up to help out the Bats. Whether I'm just crazy and just hearing things or not. I want to thank those imaginary friends of mine who have shown up to help out. Thank you, Sunnyside. 12-29-12

Oh yeah, what these fishermen are doing to these varments, is the kind of thing the Marines have gotten court marshalled over, because of the media making a stink about it.
     And the thing I've wanted to say from the get go is that if you think you've got a reliable feeder design together.
     One you think fits my specifications and it is not going to fall apart on yah. And you've got a big tub of lard sitting in it and you are about to lift it over the side of the boat to its grave....
      Piss on it for me.

Building Crab Feeders 101.

Now that I've thown this Crab feeder idea out there. Everybody seems to have some kind of image of what one should be.

It got me thinking and about the best start would probably be a cage within a cage so that the meat can't come close to the openings on the outer cage. (you might even make the inside one come out for swap out or inserting one that may have been a trap.

I think even one of the better ideas would be to have Satellite locations available so that for fisherman can locate them when they have some waste to get rid of.

Others may go for the keeping two cages, one out in the water and one for the boat, so that all they would have to do is swap out feeders. If they are two part feeders, maybe two inner and one outer would make it more practical to handle both on shore and at sea..

A a customer once said:
     "You know what it takes to do it. But you leave a few holes to fill so that the engineer will put their finishing touches on it and they will feel like it was their idea."

Well, it's just like dealing with fishermen. Just as I'd think it was only common sense, but the fishermen are letting us know that they had to beef up the bottoms to hold the extra weight.
     And it sounds like the covering of choice for the outer cages is chain link fencing.
     The inside cage covering probably varies from chain link fencing (probably on the bottom, to regular stainless steel wire used commonly for crab traps, to 2 x 4 farm fencing, to chicken wire, to stamped stainless steel mesh which I feel will be popular for the Scoop-um-up Mobile models.
      And as I was too tired to write about; but for the serial numbers, the fishermen know how rusty those old out of date fish traps and crab pots are and that stamped numbers would end up being hard to read, so they have decided to stamp the serial numbers on stainless steel tags and then they're welding them to the frame.
     And also engineers on deck have determined that having at least a 6 inch gap between the inner and outer cage is suggested, but going with about a foot or more makes for happyer fish and happyer crabs and even a more effective feeder. (I think this is influenced upon what size of boat is going to be handling it.)
     However, overtime we'll figure out these distances between the inner and outer cages (particularly the distance between the bottom of the outer and the bottom of the inner cage.) will have an influence upon what percentage of the feed will go to either the fish or the crab. (Like right now before crab season, you may want the distance less because the crabs could reach the food sooner.)
     I figure most fishermen will use the adjustable floor hight to compensate for the environment. A rocky place would require less space than a snady ocean floor. Areas with higher populations of of crab will also make them want to raise the floor so that the fish have a little more time with it and if the crab are sparse, of course you'll want to lower it.
     So my advice would be to take into consideration for this if you think adjustable brackets that raise or lower the inner cage from the bottom of the outer will help with this, the overall figures for heights of the cages should be influenced by this variable - beforehand; -if you know what I mean.
      (Stupid Rule No. 53)
      So if you happen to be starting from scratch, -I'm giving you the heads up.

And just as I thought, the fishermen are quite fond of the Scoop-Em-Up Mobile models and they have decided to give them their own classification - scrambling the number even further which would make duplicating number even more difficult. But then they have even went a little further and decided that their can be another classification known as the Trainer. It's a result of the fact that after the sharks have been trained, their isn't much need for something like chain link fencing for the outer cage once the sharks in the area have been trained. Sure some may get damaged once in a while but it's not like you have to be a rocket scientist to fix one and swap it out for a trainer when it does happen. I've even thought that the biodegradable net could be used if there was a reason they might get suit cased, but I feel that since it is not a trap, and one the giving side of things, that's just not going to be a problem.
     In fact, I think someone should produce a salt water proof padlock for us, because just as some of us have figure out, that sometimes the meat that is inside will have a value that is of now figured to be just under $500.oo.
     And since these things will a create the territorial environment by the locals, I want to suggest welding on a couple tabs and a short piece of three inch pipe welded to the door in encircling the tabs so that it would make them bolt cutter proof.
     And yes, weld the nuts to the bolts on the hinges. Or you could use bullet type hinges, (commonly found at steel supply shops, so that the hinges can slid apart for removal of the whole door if need to do so when loading.) If it's easier to have the removable doors, maybe a hooking up method could be the way to go instead of hinges. (Store bought bullet hinges would probably rust away unless made with brass and then we'd have to worry about the battery effect. But with some steel rod and pipe....)

I would like to suggest that the inner cages that are normally used on the deck of the boat to be primarily made of stainless steel. Reason being: Keeping dead meat around can cause a growth of bacteria and it's not the kind of thing you want to be keeping around were you are bringing in food for humans consumption into the boat.

Oh and another thing. This list of serial numbers with together with the classifications should be kept confidential. At least the list of serial numbers together with classifications should only be available to local port authorities. This way: should the proof of ownership be needed in a case of theft, or resale or change in ownership to someone else, you get the idea. (I think it would be better if I was the one with the list because I understand how corruption works and I can't say that Harbour Patrols can be truly be trusted all the time..

Rule Number 38

I'm sure we agree, that we have most likely dodged a bullet.
     Now the whole debate is whether the outer cages should be made of stainless steel.
     Well, I really don't see why these guys would actually even have to bring the outer cages in the boat in most cases. With a couple booms and the proper sling set-up the transfer could be done over the side of the boat. Of course you have to think about how difficult it would be to to secure the inner cage in place, but I thought that thru too. Yah put take a couple stainless steel rods and put loops in the end for pull handles. Then you use a couple springs around it and you turn them into spring loaded snap lock on each end to hold the inner cage down. The S-Steel rods with loops in the end long enough to grab from one side of the outter cage. If you make a thingy bop that will hold the pin in the out position by turning the grab handles 90 degrees, then you won't be fighting it and you'll just have to turn the handles back when you want the springs to push the rod though the locking tab hole. (Mount the handles so that they are recessed just inside a hole in the side of the outer cage so they don't get snagged.)

But now these guys are looking at a sizeable investment that they are suppose to leave out in the middle of no-where and that lock idea is even looking better.
     And the two words I heard most down at the waterfront was "Coast Guard," and I imagine that's where the fishermen are planning to keep the list. The second runner up was Stainless Steel and not to mention that many were walking around talking about how nicer it is down there.

Funny thing: I know just how men are, especially when it happens to be the tools they use. They naturally want the best and it sure dug their heals in and now they all want to start from scratch.

This is a little silly in a way. What I'm about to lay down now is something I'm sure there are people who would want to spend gobs of money on law makers to make laws needlessly.
      The deal is, if a product like this, the inventor has the ability to assign limited use. They can set the condition for which the invention is used. If such rule or limitations are applied, just as I could do with my truck saying that you can only use it for carrying horse shit. (I've written about how I could only expand the use, like adding the use of hauling Pig Shit so that you can haul two things. However, I couldn't take away a type of use with out being sued for hardship.)
     Baā€¸sically, if the leaser, or even owner, doesn't fallow though with what I contracted them to do with it, I could make them give the truck back and even apply a penally that was present in the contract of purchase or lease. Basically, I can licence something any way I want. Today, it's missile launchers as long as I see the cash in my pockets.
     Anyhow, all of you who have yourself in a tizzy, should realize I'm like the parent of my invention and I'm not one to want to see my inventions do any wrong. So I'm going to lay down some guide lines so that my kids and only grow up to what they are supposed to be.

Stupid Rules for Crab Feeders

First off, my crab cages should only be able to be used on the boat freely is when the crew is not fishing and not carrying any seafood destined for human consumption. Before the boat is used again for transportation of product bound for human consumption, the deck and work areas must be wash down with a disinfectant.
     The only way any crab feeder can be on the boat deck and surfaces is if is a stainless steal clean and empty. (Yah keep a Schoop-em-up Mobile model up on top of the wheel house because you never know when it might come in handy.)
     The only way crab feeders can be use while fishing or food product is on board is with the use of outriggers, just like the ones used for life boats. That way any blood or waste will not come in contact with the deck.

The most important rule for using my cage is that you must where gloves when handling the crab feeders and you must disinfect the gloves before touching anything else. (Just keep a bucket with some bleach and water handy.) If you've operated controls while performing this feat by yourself, you must disinfect the controls as well as the gloves before doing anything else. Disinfect your rain gear or boots and or deck if they come in contact with the cages in use. (Like when you send your flunky inside to reset the floor height.)
      I really don't think you actually need more than one guy working the cages. I think one guy at the controls and one guy to do the dirty work is the way to go.
     All it takes is know whether you are fishing or feeding and don't try to do both at the same time. Keep them separate. Separate pairs of gloves would also be a good idea, but you still need to disinfect them when you are done.

Lets Pretend

Lets pretend, these fishermen realize this list is about the best thing going to prevent theft. It's the key to getting financing without the need to pay a fortune to insurance companies to be even able to finance the feeders. It's the difference between creating a black market and common bootlegging.
     All of you have been running around driving yourself crazy with a penally number, but you don't even realize that the stipulation upon how I would perform confiscations would make all the difference in the world as far as when it comes to financing and insuring these feeders. That's when it comes down to whether the cost of stainless steel is even viable.
     It's their own fault if they let the bureaucracy step in and ruin something as important as the refrigeration of which they have learn to be a vital part their industry. So go ahead, make my day. Show me how stupid you are and go throw a wrench into you refrigeration unit to get a feel what I'm talking about.
     See, I'm one to think that by illuminating the bureaucracy, in which would only invite corruption and greed.
     With myself holding the rights to such a device. I see it as in my best interest that you be using solid gold rivets to put these cages together. The more money you can dump into the cage and not the bureaucracy. Well, that would only make my cut bigger. I want you guys to spoil yourselves so that you don't have to be the creative guy in the third world county who is thinking that oil oil drum out back would make a fine trainer.
      But the problem is that they don't know who to trust. They realize the their own law enforcement agency can even be trusted because a Million buck is a lot of money for someone who only makes $75,000.oo year. When if come to the efforts and total investment of millions of fisherman, they know that confidentiality isn't going to happen. But then could they find a lawyer to pay to keep there security numbers secure?
Would it end up costing them more money to keep their list secrete than the prelates on such a system. They know that only the person who's best interest is to keep it secret. And that can only amount to two people. The one who invented it and owns the patent rights, or they guy who manages to get a patent application inside the mail room at the United States Patent Office on March 17, 2013.
     Really, I challenge any of you to try to land one there before anyone else. (However, I wouldn't doubt Obama made it retro active and mistarl an application arrived early this week.) With as much riding on the line one can foresee that it's and inside job. If it wasn't there would see a line of patent lawyer out in front of the place before it opened. They would be camping out over night just as if it was a new I-phone.
     Tell me who would that lucky person be? Would they give a shit about the invention, or would they just action it off to the highest bid? Of course they would sell it top the highest bid you idiots.
     Then tell me who that might just be? Would you trust your silly little list to that person? And now for a very important question. Would this person or venture capitalist give a damb if your feeders get stolen? Wouldn't that person of party think that would just mean they would get to sell you another one? Hell, he might have a crew going around cutting your lines to get to to buy more.

Anyhow, lets get back to that scenario I've been dreading to throw down for the past few days. (Never wanted to over do things, but people are stupid and they make something out of nothing.)

     Now lets pretend that I did manage to get the patent on the Synchro-feeder. Say the coast guard was out cruising about. They saw a boat they thought they would approach and check out if all their papers were in order.
     From a distance they could tell that they were fisherman doing a little fishing, by the numbers on the boat they knew it had a commercial fishing licence. But once they pulled up to the boat they noticed that the guys were ready to pull a transfer with no out riggers.
     The captain calls up the food and drug administration to get the number for the heath code violation for unsanitary conditions. The second call was placed to Sunnyside. Captain Sunnyside Captain Sunnyside Captain Sunnyside Captain

Now before I finish my scenario, I'm going to let you think about what you just read before this. Tomorrow or the next day, that is if I'm still alive by then, I'll pull out the script I've had in my mind for a couple days and it will really truly show you just how silly you all are for even letting a minute chance of letting this patent slip through my hands.
     If you've got any common since at all, you will agree that there is no other option to haggle about. There are no better options. There is no other option even want to think about.
      Then the next big question I will be asking you, beside the one you've been answering to yourself all day is. Can you figure out a better way. I'd feel pretty secure betting to the rights to my truck to the person who could come up with a better way because I've thought about this a long time and I don't see any.


     If you even get a chance to read my little script I feel you are lucky because having all these Morons running around talking the shit they are saying. Only puts my life in danger.
     Do you even get it? Is your mind that screwed up that you can't even think for yourself? You have me living in a cage shitting in a bucket and much of any of the success you may experience with your livelihood depends on me. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
      Lets cut to the chase, half the fun was gone when people where telling each other that they understood because the cat was already out of the bag.
      Oh get this: They say Jesus died for our sins. Who's to say he didn't die because of our sins. That's the way I see it and I usually know what I'm looking at.
      Someone may have convince you that the cup was have full, but in reality it just as well have been half empty.

Now tell me fisherman. Who is your king. Don't you have some kind of association or union that takes you money as if it was a non-profit church. Who is you minister? What kind of house dose he live in? I bet it's worth a couple million and over looks the sea.
     I bet your king has first rate security and I wouldn't doubt he's packing.
      Oh yeah, this shark training thing isn't the only thing I think I've figure out, even though I've never been to school to learn about biology. I'm a surfer and no biologist.
     And I'm not a doctor either. But I see a lot of people dumping gobs of money into heath insurance companies, hospitals and doctors who are profiting from your own stupidity.
      How long is that going to go on?
     But really folks, all I care about is that it might be safer to piss in my old leaky wet suit.
