one-in-the-chamber: right. can we just say some dude decided he wanted to learn to scuba dive with the pretext of finding some left over fish food which was the remains of someone who died in the disaster. how could he possibly determine if the bones he found were his wife's? DNA? you would run out of testing money. and say he wins the cadaver lottery and finds say her femur. then what... oh closure, sweet, sweet closure. it bewould like she was back home again.

He's probably eaten a good bit of his wife by now. In recycled form, of course.

Don't laugh.  Same thing happened just across the river in Louisiana to a friend of mine, name of Boudreaux. Boudreaux's wife, Marie, went missing after the hurricane. Boudreaux searched for days but couldn't find her. His scuba-diving buddy Thibodeaux showed up with a search party to help find Marie. Late one night, Thibodeaux come running back to the house and told Boudreaux, "Boud, I gots sum good news and I gots sum bad news." He said "We found Marie in the bayou. I'm so sorry, but she was dead with 300 blue crabs eating on her body."

Boudreaux said, "Oh no Thib, dat's terrible!! What's the good news?"

Thibodeaux said, "We gonna run her again tomorrow."

Well you shouldn't have chained her to the seawall.  Look, the Greek myths make for great stories, but sea monsters don't actually come out and eat the lady bolted to the rock.

Captain James T. Smirk: Slartibartfaster: Captain James T. Smirk: Ugh, stories like this make me feel terrible. I really feel awful for the guy, but I can't help that my first thought upon reading it is "this guy has no chance". It makes me feel like a bad person even thinking it to myself.

sometimes it is the search, the journey, not the treasure or the destination.

You're making me feel  even worse.


Hey, did your namesake ever express remorse about "the ensign?"  Any of the ensigns?  Did he even notice?  Did he ever say to one of them: no, go ahead: you fark the green-skinned female alien, likely enough you'll die later in this mission anyway?

No.  He.  Did.  Not.

Buck up mister!  Go find that Japanese man and have wild alien sex with him!  Or to that effect.

I feel for the guy, but he's not going to have much luck.  Bones in shallow ocean water are going to get pummeled by waves and current, so they will most likely be dust.  If the body drifted out to sea, well...the ocean is mighty deep.

CSB:  My wife says she couldn't imagine going on with life without me and that she wants to die first.  I told her that if I start feeling really sick, I would push her in front of a bus.

Funny thing is that we said all this in front of her parents just after we got married.  She is from India and has a very conservative family.

Needless to say, family gatherings have been awkward.

I told her that if she dies first, I'm going to have her stuffed and mounted like a Grizzly Bear in the corner of the room growling like she's about to attack.

For some reason, she's still with me.
