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.)

Best. Submarine. Viral Videos. Ever.

Got an E-mail from an active duty reader who turned me on to the "Hey, Shipwreck" video series. The most recent one can be found here -- you'll then have to click on the DivX or WMV links. The first four episodes are linked from this page.

The videos are hard to describe. Basically, they feature a couple of animated "Halo"-type FPS video game characters with Navy crows and dolphins standing around shooting the sh*t on watch -- on a space submarine of the future that seems to be a boomer. The most recent one features a qual checkout and a s-t-s with "Sailor-to-English translation" provided. If you just close your eyes and listen to them, you'll think you're back on the boat. The submariner who makes them has a blog about the series here.

Oh, and it's definitely NSFW if you don't have headphones.

Update 2230 29 Jan: CDR Salamander likes the videos too, and comes up with the reason that they should strike a chord with most Sailors -- the conversation is pretty much exactly what you'd expect to hear on any midwatch.

The owner of the site will put up many many more of the comics he has written after his PRD. There were some, uhh, 'difficulties' with the XO, hehe.

Funny stuff... I'm hurt with the treatment of the nuke though...

I'm wondering how the dVdA will change this into some hippy free love theory.

Awesome work, thanks for posting that.
Procedures for using the sh*tter. Now that's funny.

I remember actually going through the OI with the procedure on how to use the sh*tter for duty section training one night...

Pardon my ignorance, but what's the deal with "nukes" and... uh, those other guys?

Other than that, I have to say that even though I might not get every single "inside joke" you dolphin-wearing fellas do, it's still really funny.

I understood the conversations! It
s been 12 years since I served on DD's and FFG's, and the conversations in the 'toons were identical to ones I participated in.

Especially the PQS session.

Glad to see nothing changes!

Congrats to ET1 (SS). Outstanding work!

BEST DUTY SECTION TRAINING EVER!

I would have loved to see the critique sheet on that.

This won't succeed in actual fact, that is what I believe.
