I'm literally in earshot of that place, were I outside of course. I should have gone over yesterday.

That was pretty cool, but not this cool...

Ship or Shiat, I could swear the last guy interviewed said the latter.

"This is the first time, really, on the flight deck of any sort of ship."

There's only one sort of ship you'd ever really be on the flight deck of.

I love how news announcers stress certain words. "Volunteers on jet skis and boats"...

Wait, I hate it. They are why I read news.

I'm not exactly unbiased. I'm the online guy for a newspaper.

Well, the Yorktown is a late-WWII carrier, considerably smaller than a Nimitz-class (see the Carrier Classic pic above) or the Enterprise. The LHAs and LHDs currently in service also have massive flight decks (and in fact are about the same size as the Yorktown). LPDs and LSDs have large after flight decks, and even CV/DDG/FFGs can land a helo.

So they could do this on a variety of ships.

Ain't it frustrating? I started out as a copy editor/proofreader. But the money was in printing the paper (that is, the money that was left over after paying the advertising vultures). I'm not afraid to play Grammar/Content/Syntax Nazi with someone who's supposed to be a professional. I've made many editors make corrections. But you'll never see me do it here on FARK, 'cause this ain't news. :)

Heck, even the ecoterrorist group Sea Shepard has a flight deck for helicopters on not one, but two of their ships.

I thought that the whale hunters were the ecoterrorist group. Sea Shepherds don't scare me.

Thanks.

I have family members that feel the need to point out the typos to me whenever they see them. My aunt (a teacher from AZ) comes up once a year, shows me every little mistake, and asks if I can fix them.

Those situations are only topped by people biatching about where their paper landed, after I tell them I work online. I don't give a crap if the paperboy didn't make it to your doorstep; my version made it to your computer.

/Argh. Advertising vultures.

Wow, their maintenance staff worked overtime to throw a new coat of paint on the island.

And FWIW, looks like they may ask the Navy to dispose of the Clamagore.

It sucks, but thirty years of crappy museum directors put the museum in this position. They've broken the bank saving the Laffey, and between the two I'd prefer the destroyer be kept instead.

Keep fightin' the good fight. It's a Sisyphean task. They never learn.

OMFG YOU ARE SO SMART!

Was it just me? Or did the photography make the home run fence look like it was 26- feet away from home plate?

Or maybe it actually was??
