Best cat vid of the week is the cat falling from the upper deck of the Miami stadium to the guys who caught it in a flag.
Wild stuff.
The heavy seas vid reminds me I used to have a job on a ship and watched from the bridge while half the ship went under.

30 Hey ace! Hey everybody!

I shared this really late last night, hope no one minds if I post again. I want to call this guy, John Jones, a Darwin Award winner, but at the same time the story is sad and frankly scary. (This happened in 2009 btw, but I believe the cave wasn't sealed until 2019.)

Basically this "cave spelunker" thought he could scooch down a narrow opening called "the Birth Canal" at Nutty Putty Cave in Utah, but it turned out this cavity was so narrow, John couldn't even breath properly during his rescue.

47 On Friday getting out of the car in a Walmart parking-lot in the car next-door, a woman had the window down all the way and had a husky pup on her lap who began barking at me getting out of the car. I said 'Hi' to her and let the pup sniff and lick my fingers and I head-scratched him a bit before leaving for the store. My brother told me it barked its butt off for the next 10 minutes after I left!

112 The "F*** Joe Biden" chants feel like a catharsis of sorts. People cannot speak their opinions at work, at church, on social media. If they do, they speak quietly.

History of the deepest cave in the world -- Veryovkina in old Soviet Georgia -- and how they figured out all the branches and routes is pretty damn cool. There's a few stories of sudden floods where it was literally drop everything, no matter how valuable or important, and scurry up the rope lines, literally hundreds of feet in mid-air, so you could find high enough ground to watch the flood spill over into another low cavern.

And of course the HMS Surprise replica frigate from Master and Commander is at the Maritime Museum not far from there.

I don't know much about guns, but the Sigs have the DA double action hammer, when cocked, it takes, like, what, 4lbs of pressure to release that hammer? That's nothing.

If someone grabs a gun with the hammer cocked, and if the attacker has his finger on the trigger, it'll probably fire.

The USN had a number of bows blown or or snapped off in a typhoon. Speed needs to come down fast to save the transverse bulkheads. Have too many smashed and the ship can not be saved.

Steam ships with geared steam-driven turbine running the bull gear are simply not as fast to slow down. On my one steam ship, all back full stops the ship in a couple of miles.

On my gas-turbine ship with controllable pitch propellers, I could and did stop the ship in it's own ship's length. Granted, everything on the ship was shuddering from the force needed. But it can be done.

438 NaCly, yes, the two older carriers reversing for air operations - love it. If the Essex's could've done it at Saipan it might have made the engagement even more decisive (in terms of surface units sunk) by giving the air groups more action time, and obviated what I find to be a boring and stupid "controversy" about Spruance's decision.

443 Re screws coming out of water, the man on the throttle board was kept pretty busy, played hell with the turn counter log. If you where supposed to be making 120 rpm you had a cheat sheet calculated out what the turn counter should be every 10 minutes, turns were logged every hour and you were supposed to be dead on. We were rated to a 60 degree roll been there several times. When it rolls hard it kinda hangs there shaking for 10-15 seconds. Seemed like minutes at the time. Been there done that.

Late to this Salty - but as OOD, you never should get into this position, your ship - either frigate or destroyer - can easily do 28 knots (non-classified) to get westward of any rotating seas if East coast or eastward if PACFleet - it's just not that hard.

Breakfast hour, so had my only taste of Dom Perignon - well, more than a taste. Told the flight attendant to keep it coming. I actually f***ed with the customs guys on arrival, exhibiting all the good judgement that alcohol and sleeplessness over 2 days will provide. Not a great idea - Vietnam.

Aussie pilots work for many Asian airlines and have since at least the early 90s. I was quite surprised when the captain spoke on the Singapore Airlines plane he had a very distinct Aussie accent.

I heard later that it was due to a prolonged pilots strike in Australia in the 80s that drove the pilots north for work.

600 A friend described flying Air Afrique when the pilot had a heart attack. The erratic flying didn't at first clue them in that there was a problem in the cockpit since he was often drunk.

601 One of my best flights was on Air Ziare. It was on a DC-10. They had two, When they were not in use by Maboutu or his wife the flew between Kinshasa and London. Flight I was on had 12 passengers. I had the entire back half of the plane to myself. Slept the whole flight.

602 One of the last flights I was on the guy next to me downed 4 beers. And he was still pretty freaked out after the fourth, but we were coming in for a landing so they wouldn't give him any more.

It sort of worked though, we got a crosswind just a few feet off the ground and the pilot had to do their weird sidewise-angled landing...and my neighbor was too wasted to notice.

The passengers gave the pilot a standing ovation over it though.

606 Cicero, sorry to hear that. With an Aussie in the left seat, on a brand new plane, my flights were perfect.

Baby-flots, consistent with prior practice, basically did dive-bomb approaches and max-climb departures (fuel efficiency) - which were fun. Especially with Euroweenies there for the first time.

And I've previously told the one about the ramp guys refueling the plane in Vladikavkaz, lit cigarettes dancing on their lips as they argued over the latest Moscow Dynamo game or something. Euroweenie guy near me was terribly concerned.

623 USS Memphis (ex-USS Tennessee, ACR-10) was lost to a trio of rogue waves in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on 29 August 1916. First attributed to a seismic event, it is now thought that the waves were generated by a series of hurricanes that were in the area. She struck bottom at least once, in 45 feet of water, before being driven to a rocky shore.

I had a conversation with the then-Captain of the QE II regarding this event (two posts): "At 0410 the rogue wave was sighted right ahead, looming out of the darkness from 220°, it looked as though the ship was heading straight for the white cliffs of Dover. The wave seemed to take ages to arrive but it was probably less than a minute before it broke with tremendous force over the bow. An incredible shudder went through the ship, followed a few minutes later by two smaller shudders. There seemed to be two waves in succession as the ship fell into the 'hole' behind the first one. The second wave of 28-29 m (period 13 seconds), whilst breaking, crashed over the foredeck, carrying away the forward whistle mast.

637 Second post: "Captain Warwick admits that sometimes it can be difficult to gauge the height of a wave, but in this case the crest was more or less level with the line of sight for those on the bridge, about 29 m above the surface; additionally, the officers on the bridge confirmed that it was definitely not a swell wave. The presence of extreme waves was also recorded by Canadian weather buoys moored in the area, and the maximum measured height from buoy 44141 was 30 m (98 feet.)"

638 My worst flight was a C-141 from MacDill AFB to Saudi Arabia. I think it took 3 days; 2 breakdowns and 1 emergency landing. All issues were fixed by the USAF's fine mechanics though (Aim High, Yo!!). We did make it safely to our destination, Riyadh. Riyadh sucks. Found out that C-141 was near the end of it's 'life cycle' and we were it's last flight. My guess is they refurbished it and it's still flying today.

665 Air India left me stranded in Cairo for 48 hours on a NY to London to Nairobi flight. Taking off from London, while we were still climbing we started going down, back to the airport. Plane problems.

We get to Cairo eventually. Plane problems again. Mind you, Cairo wasn't on the itinerary. We were stuck at the grotty old terminal filled with muzzies, where all the flights listed were to places like Khartoum and Tripoli. The lady from the embassy called my mom to tell her I was safe. (I was 20.) My mom was like, "CAIRO? What's she doing in Cairo?"

Got to Nairobi finally to meet up at the National Museum of Kenya with the Koobi Fora Field School group. The professor running it exclaimed, "I wondered what happened to you!"

680 I have two worst flight stories, maybe three.

1. Frontier Airlines from San Diego to Madison, WI. Delayed by six hours, then a stop in Denver, where they had to deplane us to give our plane to another flight, without collecting our luggage, and then getting sent to a hotel without even an overnight bag. With my six year old son. Bastards told us we were getting back on the plane, and then didn't say anything else, so when I went to get back on, they said it wasn't my flight anymore. I had to threaten a few people to get a voucher for the hotel. Never, never again. The entire airline can FOAD.

2. Military hop from Elmendorf AFB to Shemya AFS, C-120 with jump seats. Look it up. No toilet, no stops, 60 mph cross winds on landing. 'nuff said.

684 Cicero, no TV, but I gather the affirmative action non-entity is doing commercials for him, too?

It's all an unbelievable festival of degradation and idiocy.

And the target audience lives all around us.

685 I haven't flown much. Maybe a dozen flights in my life. Which is funny because I'm in the aviation business.

702 672 Yeah Egypt Air's on my "no fly" list for a few decades now.

Ahemm.

After the Iraq invasion of Kuwait, I had to go TDY to another gulf country for a couple of months, and when it was time to fly back to my post, I got unexpectedly sidetracked to Cairo. Airport security saw my dip passport and posted an armed guard to stay with me. Bless his heart, he took the job seriously...as in followed me into the women's bathroom and made everyone else get out.

When I finally got on a flight out, it was Tanzania Air, complete with live chickens and goats, and passengers firing up Bunsen burners to make fresh tea.

I prayed long and hard that we landed safely, which surprisingly, we did. But never, ever again will I fly that airline.

703 I am having so much trouble with my laptops. My work one tossed Internet Explorer and won't let me reinstall it.

My writing computer tries to update Office and tells me the application won't open.

I did manage to finish another chapter of my book, but what a frigging pain!

One more chapter to go. . .

Other way around. Although Sara (CV-3) did commission before Lex (CV-2) did.
