Caption This Photo!

A non-Submariner reader sent in this picture, wondering what the Submariner was doing. I was guessing a ship's diver got sent topside in relatively rough seas to clear some sort of sound issue, and might be watching his bag wash overboard. In any event, I figure it's a good candidate for an old-fashioned "Caption This Photo" contest. The winner earns the admiration of his or her peers.

based on the green suit he is wearing and the backwards dive mask I would venture to guess a Diver/SEAL on a DDS platform during an emergency surface procedure from PD (which is practiced all the time at the end of the day when doing DDS ops) based on the waterline and angle of the photo, the pic looks like it was taken from the opening of the DDS, not from the sail or the fwd escape trunk. It could be a Virginia and in that case I may be off.

and anon @12:33 what an ass...a shipmate dies in the line of duty tragically and its a punch line to you?

At Mount Lycaeum he defeated an army under Aratus of Sicyon, and then routed a second army near Megalopolis. Meanwhile, in domestic politics, he ordered the assassination of the ephors. In quick succession, Cleomenes cleared the cities of Arcadia of their Achaean garrisons, before crushing another Achaean force at Dyme. Facing Spartan domination of the League, Aratus was forced to turn to Antigonus III Doson of Macedon and request that he assist the Achaeans' efforts to defeat the Spartans. Cleomenes eventually

The official Barça anthem is the "Cant del Barça" written by Jaume Picas and Josep Maria Espinàs. Unlike many other football clubs, the supporters own and operate Barcelona. It is the world's second richest football club in terms of revenue, with an annual turnover of €398 million. The club holds a long-standing rivalry with Real Madrid, and matches between the two teams are referred to as "El Clásico".

The name "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" was introduced in 1927 by the Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act to reflect the reality that the de facto independence of the Irish Free State, created by the partitioning of Ireland in 1922, left Northern Ireland as the only part of the island of Ireland still within the UK.[19] Prior to this, the Acts of Union 1800, that united the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland in 1801, had given the new state the name of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Great Britain before 1801 is occasionally referred to as the "United Kingdom of Great Britain"

The United Kingdom is often referred to as Britain. British government sources frequently use the term as a short form for the United Kingdom, whilst media style guides generally allow its use but point out that the longer term Great Britain refers only to England, Scotland and Wales.[32][33][34] However, some foreign usage, particularly in the United States, uses Great Britain as a loose synonym for the United Kingdom.[35][36] Also, the United Kingdom's Olympic team competes under the name "Great Britain" or "Team GB".[37][38] GB and GBR are the standard country codes for the United Kingdom (see ISO 3166-2 and ISO 3166-1 alpha-3) and are consequently commonly used by international organisations to refer to the United Kingdom.
