Say Yes to Everything

Burnie Vlog: Say Yes to Everything

Burnie takes us on a very Austin style yacht race on Lake Travis and explores what it means to be a social chameleon. Ellie is definitely the best sailor on board and in no way embarrases her family or nation...

    I want the version of the little tune at the end of these podcasts. It's such a happy little ditty and i love it. It embodies Rooster Teeth for me. When i hear it  I always imagine bumble a bee flying against the breeze, swaying this way and that. It's beautiful in its purpose, and entertaining for the onlooker.

    Drew is 100% the guy to start the fun and everyone else is less social chameleons more people who don't have much of a life outside of work and the people they work with. I don't consider myself a remarkably social person but I have plans every evening. I could never drop everything and go. It would be cruel to the people I have plans with.

      The Spanish Armada was defeated in 1588 due to severe storms they encountered as they sailed for England. They were required to sail east and then around England, which ended up destroying a third of their fleet. They were a formidable naval force, but were victims of fate. However, the English did have an impressive defense fleet led by Sir Francis Drake, which staved off the initial advance of the Armada in 1588 and other attempted assaults by sea between the coasts of England and France throughout the sixteenth century.

    The Spanish Armada is on the bottom of the channel and the English navy dominated the world for centuries, so I think England's sailing reputation is fine. Thanks Horatio Nelson...

      I certainly have, but Nelson died off the coast of Spain, and helped to maintain England's naval superiority, so I hope you'll forgive my transgression.

    Been seeing a shit-ton of sailing stuff lately.  It started with a weekend trip to a lake up north in Michigan, followed by realizing that Moana was on Netflix (don't judge me), and now this.

    I had a sailboat for a summer.  It was... pretty fun.  It was only a little 12ft. Hobie Cat, and I managed to turtle it after a summer of not knowing what I was doing, but there were a couple glorious moments where everything came together, and it was amazing.  (Also spent a day on it with a girl I no longer talk to.... which is about as "Social Chameleon" as I've managed to make so far...)  I sold it for a Hobie 16, which I sold after the winter because I didn't trust myself to solo a boat that big.

    If I had to equate it to something, sailing vs. powerboating is like driving an automatic vs. a stick.  You spend most of your time setting your lines and sails at just the right angles for the wind... and then the wind shifts.  But it feels SO good when things come together.  And there's that built-in smugness as well.

    (Also, not joking about that boom.  The closest you can sail into the wind is about 45° either left or right, and if you cross the wind while heading into it, the boom flips sides, somewhat vigorously depending how fast you do it.  However, if you cross the wind while heading the same direction as it, you end up with a "jibe", where the sail and boom switch sides EXTREMELY fast, breaking boats and skulls alike if they're in the wrong place.)

    ((Been looking at sailboats again.  Doable, but I'd have to sell a motorcycle or two....))

    Ellie shouldn't feel too bad about dropping the winch overboard, I've dropped two or three in my sailing career, it's a really easy thing that happens on a boat. Also, sailing is amazingly fun really happy my dad got us into it.

    The Spanish Armada was embarrassing for the Spanish, not the British, it was the largest navel fleet ever assembled to engage in naval warfare and was decimated when it tried to launch an attack on Britain. It was one of the best examples of the "Britannia rules the waves." phrase in action.
    If anyone is interested in the history of this event I highly suggest 'Battlefield Britain - Spanish Armada'.

      The Spanish Armada isn't the largest naval fleet ever assembled, technically it was the forces at D Day but the fleet most regarded as the largest was Zheng He's fleet from the Ming Dynasty in China. It was used to explore south east Asias and Eastern Africa until The entire fleet was dismantled.
