No, I'm not.

It's actually quite amazing that subby managed to misuse BOTH of them in the same sentence. Usually people stick with one (default is you're).

ok but what if you really, really gotta go poo

I saw that on a movie once.... It didn't go well for the ship... or the "good" pirates that were running from the other pirates.

You scratched my anchor!!!
 
2022-12-03 4:29:55 PM  
Some of us old folks are prone to accidentally dropping an anchor - especially after a big feed.

I read that as "furry engines" at first and expected a totally different story. I need new glasses or I need to go to Southeast Asia and get some eyes on the grey market.
 
2022-12-03 4:40:58 PM  
you can only drop anchor on the poop deck

So, the anchor "unexpectantly" dropped right on top of the Nord Pipeline......

Yes, it is.

But don't bother - that scene is the only redeeming part of the movie.

/and the redemption value is still only a nickel

I thought it was a decent popcorn movie as long as you don't think about it too hard.

But is it still a better love story than Twilight?

Remember, the proper response when the captain says "Weigh anchor!" is not "2,385 pounds, sir!"

God damn it.  I was looking forward to some eurobeat drifting action.

I know.  I'll write a letter to Santa asking for a sequel filled with eurobeat.  You know Santa, he always delivers.

That clip is from Battleship, based on the board game of the same name. It's crap.

Pacific Rim is a terrific stupid movie. Here's its version of a ship battle.

FTA:   Marshall said it's unclear how the anchor deployed and the ferry company will launch an investigation into what went wrong.

Read headline.  Thought to myself, "Self, I'll bet dollars to doughnuts this was BC Ferries".

Clicked link.

I Won the bet!!!!!

Used to take the ferry in between the mainland and the Island weekly if not multiple times, the best locally known "secret" was that you could get a stateroom from the gift shop for like, $25 in the old days.

Couch, privacy, place to drink beers if prepared and hang with friends.

9/11 took that away because they were so close to the bridge that they deemed it a security risk.

/not making that up, at least this is what the staff told me when I was surprised I couldn't get one anymore.
//got laid lots in those, I guess my gfs at that time considered it the mile high club of a ferry.
///don't think they had a toilet but for some reason I remember them having a sink? Worked well enough for our needs.

Oops, dropped anchor.
What do we do?
I dunno, stop I suppose.

/So what's the minimum crew requirement?

Damn, that shiat is LOUD, too. Even in a giant cruise ship, when they dropped anchor, you could hear it through the whole ship. I'm sure it is even louder on a ferry..
