'S' is for 'Submarine'



    The Navy sent me through many months of training to become an airborne acoustic sensor operator.  This intensive regimen resulted in a savvy analyst who could detect front-line submarines and, if necessary, dispatch them to the bottom of the ocean before they could unleash hell on American cities.


This type of submarine?

Easy to find

This type?

Not so much

This kind?
Pretty simple, really

Just keep an eye on the spokesman

  2. I'd rather find them than have to be in them. A tin can under that much water, no thanks.

  3. Jared looks realllly awkward in that photo. I don't really know which terrible joke to make.

  4. Silent but deadly submarine Al. More power to you for living in a tin can for us. I'd rather hang in a NY subway than with Jared. It is cleaner. TGIF Al

  7. The very thought of being enclosed in a submarine under the water makes me nervous. God bless those of you who can handle it.

    1. Balancing out the odds of being crushed by the ocean depths is the opportunity to not bathe. So, it kinda evens out.

    1. Is that a command?

  13. I've always thought it would be cool to be in a submarine. Fortunately, I don't suffer from claustrophobia.

    The last photo is too disturbing for words.

  15. As I have aged, I've gotten claustrophobic in some situations (MRI, anyone?). It's crazy to feel terrified when you can logically tell yourself that nothing is wrong.

    While on vacation, we had the opportunity to tour a sub. As soon as I got close to the door, I knew that wasn't going to happen, lol. A submarine just looks like a death capsule. My mind wanders to the National Geographic article about the H.L.Hunley and the pictures of the crew's skeletons...uh, once again, NO.

    We were in Charleston and my gang wanted me to tour the battleship...uh, NO. Same deal.

    At some point, I'm just refusing to do anything that makes me uncomfortable. I've earned that stance.
