New classification:

1. Is kitesurfing really addictive? :winner2:

2. Why are pump bases flat?

3. Why are pumps cylinders and pistons round?

Why round pistons only 3rd? Because got the inspiration from flat bases.
No protests allowed.


THIS PREVIOUS POST ABOUT INSPIRATION IS WHY I ASK IF THE RULES NOW HAVE CHANGED :P :P :P

THANK YOU JUDGE ALEXANDER :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin: :rollgrin:

Good one again :thumb: , Ned, but...

Rule number 3: you cannot occupy two places on the podium, even if you deserve it, else it couldn't be called an "open" competition.

Evidently, you are seeking a monopoly, and I'll fight for the rights of the other entrants.

Updated classification:

1. What is the difference between a double skin foil kite? (Ned) :winner2:

2. Is kitesurfing really addictive? (panchito)

3. Why are pump bases flat? (consumer)

4. Why are pumps cylinders and pistons round? (Supa EZ)

5. Can a person live in Maui on 20k a year? (rtz)

6. Why are Kite Harnesses so F'n Ugly!? (Laughingman)


Ned still in the lead. His reformulated question has been judged better than the one he submitted earlier.

Two new application have just been rejected.

"Kiteforum needs an honest review section!" by Jdizzle.
because the required question mark is missing:
Otherwise it's excellent as a meaningless proposition ;-).

And "Dumb question ....." by dniez
firstly because there is not question mark.
secondly because of the admission
and thirdly because there are are no dumb questions.


:lol: :lol: NOW WAIT A MINUTE ALEXRIDER :lol: :lol: :lol:
DID THE RULES CHANGE
NED OBVIOUSLY GOT "HIS" IDEA FROM ME :D :D
SOOOOO...SHOULD'NT:How well would a single skin foil fly? REMAIN IN 1ST AND NED 2ND :P
:winner2: :winner2: :winner2: :winner2: :winner2: :winner2: :winner2: :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

I admit your post was inspirational but as alex-the-just-judge will agree, you can't have a question about a single (=1) skin foil marked higher than one about a double (=2) skin foil kite. Because as I have recently discovered, 2 is bigger than 1. Yes. So there you are. :winner2:
BTW Alex, who might Panchito be? :?:

Quote Ned:
"Is kitesurfing really addictive?"
(I think I posted this sometime in the past)"

There is an investigation going on to determine if Ned and Panchito are one and the same person.

If it turns out to be the case, which one of Ned or Panchito should be disqualified will be the question.

Sorry SupaEZ, not protests allowed.

Furthermore the sheer absurdity of Ned's question arises not from the mention of "skin" and "foil", but the paraprosdokian asking the difference between a single object.

However Ned is being investigated for foul playing for using two different avatars. So hope is not lost for you.

Dear all
It comes to my surprise that I am being accused for double identity. I would never do this.
Yours faithfully
Panchito Divine
