Keeping the blogosphere posted on the goings on of the world of submarines since late 2004... and mocking and belittling general foolishness wherever it may be found. Idaho's first and foremost submarine blog. (If you don't like something on this blog, please E-mail me; don't call me at home.)

My Readers Send Me Kewl Links!

From my Inbox (joel dot bubblehead at gmail dot com), a reader from Atlanta sends a great series of shots of a tugboat trying to play submarine a couple of years ago. Since his surface-to-dive ratio at the end of the day was still equal to one, you'd have to say it was a successful trip. Snopes has some more of the background.

Karbonkountymoos sends a link to a blogger named Sarpy Sam who had an interesting experience with submarine medicine while underway.

The inexhaustible Ninme, who is a little less enigmatic now that her "About Me" page is finally up, sends a link to an interesting discussion on the right side of the blogosphere about the current activities of the U.S. carrier fleet. From there, you can check out the raving moonbats of the left and their take on the issue. Here's the real scoop on this whole thing: this is just a normal rotation of carriers along with some local ops. We're not about to invade Iran. Last year, both sides of the blogosphere got up in arms when the Navy started Summer Pulse '04 and sent seven carriers to sea; everyone thought that we were going to invade China or something. (One of the carriers involved was the USS Ronald Reagan, which just happened to be doing a change of homeport from Norfolk to San Diego, and didn't even have a full air wing on board.) Didn't happen then, won't happen now...

Going deep...

I dunno. If an intelligent guy like Charles thinks it, and the much less intelligent DU Moonbats think it, then I'm sure the chinless opthamologist thinks it. And its his nerves we're worried about, not the DU Moonbats.
