Ned lost the lead he was holding for several weeks.

Haha! I also thought that the Birdwing could be real. Does that give me extra marks in this competition, which I could use to reclaim the lead?

With all due respect, the post title, which is fairly easy to read and understand, includes no time restriction. Therefore you really shouldn't be asking. This means that this is a silly enough question to enter the competition. Alex, please mark / rank this question ASAP.

I know why he asked.
A protest is expected from Ned with the updated classification:

1. Can coriolis effect affect toeside side? (SupaEZ)

2. Is that question for real? (PullStrings, wondering about SupaEZ's question)

3. Opinion! If this Human Birdwing is for Real Or Bullsh!t?? (DrLightWind)

4. What is the difference between a double skin foil kite? (Ned)

5. Is kitesurfing really addictive? (panchito)

6. Why are pump bases flat? (consumer)

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

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

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


This classification might be very short lived. A guy called bortola started a thread which might provide interesting entries: Most common questions from people on the beach. To be followed closely. From now on, the competition is even more open, because questions brought to the forum from the outside world will be admitted, provided of course they remain kite related.

Ned, you better come up with something powerful if you want to regain a place on the podium.

Divine, you are relegated to 5th place; you really don't take this competition seriously. SupaEZ is all over the place now, and I bet you haven't even got the no wind excuse:

1. Can coriolis effect affect toeside side? (SupaEZ) :winner2:

2. Is that question for real? (PullStrings, wondering about SupaEZ's question)

3. REALLY ? smaller [kite] for strong winds? ("one people" on the beach,via SupaEZ)

4. Opinion! If this Human Birdwing is for Real Or Bullsh!t?? (DrLightWind)

5. What is the difference between a double skin foil kite? (Ned)

6. Is kitesurfing really addictive? (panchito)

7. Why are pump bases flat? (consumer)

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

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

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


Amendment in the rules: from now on, questions brought to the forum from the outside world will be admitted, provided of course they remain kite related.

My last thread has secured me the first place, whether the answer is yes (by right of having been victim of fraud) or no (in this case it will be a very silly question). I hope that defense and egoism will not undermine justice.
