The State of California just instituted a required boat operator's license. Up until now you could walk into a broker and drive away in a 200' yacht or rent a speedboat or jetski with no training or certification at all. So maybe that makes sense.

I won't have to get one, because I have a professional Captain's license from the USCG. It's somewhat involved to get one, but you can do so without EVER having driven a boat! Maybe that doesn't make sense.

I'd like to see the driving privilege certificate aka license become MUCH harder to obtain.

The house I lived in once backed onto the alley right behind Pinks. Back in those days it was always 3 deep at the counter.... Fatburger was the same.

Thanks for the pics Max.... I got instant heartburn; oh, the nostalgia.

I heard a radio add for one of those rip-off Indian casinos down South in which they reported they had the only "certified loose slots". As if anyone was going around certifying slot machines, particularly those in Indian casinos that operate in secrecy, are above laws regulating and policing such things, like the strict State regulation for all slot machines in Nevada casinos. These lawless Indian casinos have what amounts to a license to rip-off those gamblers foolish enough to go to them and lose their money!

Ever noticed how you really need nothing to be a parent? I guess God certified you by giving you certain parts (or not).

I had to have a crane operator certification to use the crane on the pier to load a boat. Um...one lever for up down, one for in out, and one for left right. How frigging hard can it be?

Answer: Damn hard when the boat is moving up and down and you've got a two ton load swinging in the wind and people on deck who are trying not to be squashed or knocked overboard.

So yeah, some certifications make sense.
