      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

ok, maybe I’m just making this up, but I seem to remember reading once that “sandbagging” comes from the 18th & 19th century tradition of press-ganging, where ships in need of crew would basically run through towns kidnapping people who would then wake up on board, headed for india or somewhere. this practice was legal in england for 200 years! the favorite weapon of these folks was a sock or bag filled with sand because it didn’t do permanent damage and it didn’t *look* like a weapon. the press gangers would mingle with other sailors, get them drunk, and then *wham*, welcome to the navy. I think the term sandbagging comes from the apparently innocuous appearance of the weapon… this probably won’t convince anyone, but I wanted you to all know what a book-loving nerd I am.

ah-HA!

that would explain the other verb form of the word "sandbag" in my lil dictionary:

"to hit with a sandbag"

from oed:

 

1. a. trans. To furnish with sandbags.

 

1860 Cornh. Mag. Oct. 440 The Bank [was] sandbagged and barricaded. 1906 Daily Chron. 11 Dec. 10/5 He not only fastens all his windows, he sandbags them.

 

 

b. intr. To attend to sandbags.

 

1928 Sat. Even. Post 4 Feb. 100/2 One of the chauffeurs had just finished fueling the plane. ?You fly her,? said Andy. ?I'll sandbag.?

 

 

2. To fell with a blow from a sandbag. Also fig., to bully or coerce; to criticize or lambaste.

 

1887 Courier-Jrnl. (Louisville, Kentucky) 2 Feb. 6/2 The next day Claytor turned up at Central Station with a fairy story that he had been sand-bagged on his way home. 1889 Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch 16 Sept., John Lehner and Henry Koontz were sandbagged Saturday night. 1897 HOWELLS Landl. Lion's Head 421 He had not been sand~bagged, or buncoed. 1901 Congress. Rec. 23 Jan. 1345/1 [This district] is lying in wait, as it were, from one year's end to the other, awaiting an opportunity to sandbag the public. 1903 ?O. HENRY? in Ainslee's Mag. Feb. 59/2 About what figure had you and the kalsominer agreed to sandbag the state for? 1919 Daily News 12 Mar. 8/1 While the [German] revolution was being side-tracked in Parliament it was being sand-bagged in the proletariat. 1973 Globe & Mail (Toronto) 4 May 6/1 Each will attempt to sandbag the Liberals into adopting its policies. 1974 Listener 27 June 818/1 Mr Heath and Mr Wilson sandbagging each other at televised press conferences.

 

 

3. Poker. To refrain from raising at the first opportunity in the hope of raising by a greater amount later.

 

1940 O. JACOBY On Poker v. 36 The time to sandbag is when you have three of a kind or better. 1950 G. S. COFFIN Poker Game Compl. vi. 71 Jacks back sometimes offers a fine chance to sandbag. 1977 D. ANTHONY Stud Game i. 7 He fondled his stack of blue chips. He was sandbagging me. I gave him the same dose of silence. 1978 Sci. Amer. July 112/3 By under-representing a strong hand (sand-bagging) and thus keeping his opponents from folding a player may increase the pot he expects to win.

 

perhaps the last, poker related defination relates to the climbing context "to under-represent".

This may be thread-drift but I think that the word 'shang-hai' is the word for what Forest explained. Maybe we should restrict thread-drift to serious threads outside of the spray forum though.

The recent drubbing of thelawgoddess in the dry-tooling thread stands as an excellent example of the kind of BS that makes this board suck sometimes. So, maybe she's a little enthusiastic about something she has little experience with....and there is no doubt that she has a silly screen name, but there is no reason to be so nasty. Cut the crap, guys.

 

Spray in the spray section, feel free to be witty everywhere, but I agreee with the uptight guys here in saying that a little restraint goes a long way.

I don't have a problem with her screen name (maybe she thinks YOUR screen name is silly). I do have a problem with you acting like some collective den mother. TLG can take care of herself.

UNDERGROUND SPRAY

 

Here is how to do it.

 

Make a "trip Report" or apparently useful beta which is actually totally false*. Then sit back and wait for some sucker to believe your useful beta and get in trouble and then for the name calling to start <img border="0" alt="yellaf.gif" title="" src="graemlins/yellowlaugh.gif" />

 

For instance if you drove by Drury Falls and it was half frozen write a detailed trip report about the difficult mixed climbing you encountered and shiny fresh titanium rustproof bolts you placed as you climbed leashless to send the first mixed ascent of this testpiece. rename the climb. say there was a logjam and you could walk across the river. rate it m7+. say there are 6 other lines up there you saw that you plan to go back and rapbolt. illustrate your TR with some pictures you cut and paste from the Petzl website.

 

then sit back & enjoy the 'serious climbers' getting upset by your beta. <img border="0" title="" alt="[big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

 

*You might want to use a fake avatar name to do this so people dont automatically know its you and figure out you are BS'ing...

 

<img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[sNAFFLEHOUND]" title="" src="graemlins/snaf.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[big Drink]" title="" src="graemlins/bigdrink.gif" />

 

Anybody check out that sport climbing in MRNP? snaf.gif
