I see people propose carrers and battleships. Why not both at the same time? The battleship Ise in her 1944 configuration. :geek: Insufficiently ridiculous. I nominate HMS FURIOUS. You would be too if an 18" gun happened to you. Fat chance of that thing ever hitting another ship. If I were a r...

We missed you, Rommel and LeMay? Dear God, the standards are slipping these days. Happy (belated) birthday greetings.

On German subs, thanks to the somewhat cramped quarters, the guys and gals usually manage to keep their pants zipped until they reach a port and are accommodated in a hotel. On other grey-painted ships, it is absolutely possible to find nooks and crannies to explore each others' nooks and crannies....

Who says it wasn't her who couldn't do control herself? Unless she ambushed the Captain and sexually assaulted him, he should have the maturity, professionalism, and responsibility to decline any advances. I find it hard to believe that someone in that position can't find anyone to shag who isn't o...

No argument about cocain but by now people should know that non fraternisation doesn't work that well. Might as well order the sun to rise in the north. But the Captain of a SSBN? I mean, in the worst case he's expected to follow an order to kill a few million people. If he hasn't got the willpower...

It also depends on the ability to supply units in the field with sufficient ammo, and proper drill to avoid firing it all away unnecessarily. We have several examples like the 21st Ohio or 20th Maine, which found themselves in extremis because they ran out of ammo. Hear, hear! It looks like Allin a...

So I really don't think you'd get much more of a bloodbath by adding breechloaders. The proportions are all about the same, despite increasing numbers of men engaged and skill at killing each other. I hazard a guess. Even if the manufacturing capacity for breechloaders using cartridges existed (did...

Dramaworld! The protagonist is a cute, little redhead who looks fantastic in a black … Ok, let’s not get distracted by her legs. :P She’s a huge, massive, Über geek for Korean soap operas, called K drama. And when we meet her she’s very disturbed because in the latest K drama with her favorite leadi...

A lot of former hybrid owners I know tell me that they got rid of the things when they realized the mileage feedback had them driving the batteries and not the car. Most IC engined cars over here have identical feedback (i.e. instantaneous MPG) available on the multi-function display in the control...

Never really got the hate thing for Prius, it's just a car with some very good technology in it. I'd have one in a heartbeat, if it didn't cost me anything to replace the current commuterbox (actually what I'd really like is a Volt). Anyway, yes that's a funny conversion. The car's probably the sca...

Good, safe shooting. You will want to check for eye dominance. In the shot shown, she's using her left eye while shooting right handed. That can easily become a problem later. Also, can I suggest a loading block? A piece of 2x4 with 1/4" holes drilled in it to a depth of 3/8" Makes it muc...

Top Tip:

If an independent Quebec gets too upsetting just partition it between you and Canada. That should keep things quite for a century. ;)
