For I'll go no more waltzing Matilda
All around the green bush far and free
To hump tent and pegs, a man needs both legs
No more waltzing Matilda for me

It was back in the 90s when the Pearl Harbor movie came out, a radio called, which I believe was Don & Mike called a British woman named Pearl Harber and asked if she hated the Japanese.

A rare Don and Mike reference on Fark.

This guy is a farking idiot!  It didn't take place in 1931!!

Anyway...  I once found myself in Pearl Harbor.  Seriously...  It was not planned.  What happened was, we were in Hawaii for a week (Kawaii), and flew back to Oahu for the flight home.  It turned out that our flight wasn't for like 11 hours.  So we had a bunch of time to kill.

So we rented a car and went for a ride.  Knowing nothing about the geography of where we were, we quickly stumbled onto Pearl Harbor.  It wasn't very hard to find.

Anyway...  The main part of this story is when I saw the Arizona Memorial.  Dumbass that I am, I did NOT know that the ship was still there.  And you can see it just under the surface, even if you don't go out to the actual memorial.  And that to me was one of the most eerie things I had ever experienced.  It was most unexpected.  And it was moving.
The other thing to tell of is that damn near every other person on the site that day was Japanese.  All there taking pictures and stuff.  I suppose it's historical for them too.

I did the tour at Pearl and the bus driver points out an area and says "that's where they set up the film crew for the Ben Affleck movie Pearl Harbor. We've watched it and still can't figure out what it was about or why they filmed it here".

Went to the Pearl Harbor Museum after it opened.  Was very informative.   The Arizona's band came in second place is a battle of the bands in Waikiki.  The reward was they got to sleep late.  Then took the boat ride to the memorial.

Since there was no bridge to Ford Island, we took a ferry to the island.   They were using the runway for touch and goes for pilot training.    Walked around the island.  They had monument to the other ships sunk and IIRC the place where the West Virginia was tied up and Dorie Miller shot down all those Messerschidts.

Stopped at the Navy BX equivalent of the Run-in-Chef and the woman working the grill screamed "Did everyone decide to come ta Ford Island today?"  There were three of us.

I knew a guy that was conscripted into the German army at the end of tje war.  He was 15 years old at the time.  He said he got a couple weeks of training and then they had him standing a post in Berlin.   When the Russians showed up he said fark it and deserted to find an allied unit so he could surrender, which he did.

You have to admit, there was no generation like them.
Heard one vet this morning, survived the Arizona.  He said people always tell him "Thank you for your service!"
His standard reply:  "YOU were worth my service."

/someone, please stop cutting the onions...

I personally liked that many things in Oahu were written in Japanese.  Seriously, road signs pointing to Pearl Harbor were in Japanese.  I found this humorous.

I was thinking about that when our national archives released all those documents about Pearl Harbor, and the one was the map with all the directions on it about how to get to Pearl Harbor, where all the ships were anchored, etc.
It made the news in Japan too.

/why do WE have that?
