These pics actually got the Chief of the Station releived for cause, which is the equivilant to being fired. The crews driving were not qualified, no surf belts or helmats or a second boat.....cool shots but ouch....

This is the actual radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. Radio conversation released by the chief of naval operations, 10-10-95. CANADIANS: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. AMERICANS: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision. CANADIANS: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. AMERICANS: This is the captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course. CANADIANS: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course. AMERICANS: This is the Aircraft Carrier US LINCOLN, the second largest ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet. We are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees north. I say again, that's one-five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship. CANADIANS: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

That WAS a lighthouse!!! There's now a slightly radioactive deep water ship's channel along that once craggy, annoyingly jutting coastline...allowing American military might to get from point A to point B that much more quickly. Damned impertinent Canucks! We have to brush them back from time to time!

As you are obviously one of those internet geeks/pricks who just goes on a site and bitches, regardless of the nature of the site is, why don't you fuck off to another site? Any site will do, just as long as people get to see your twatty comments. Is that because your parents don't love you or is it because your daddy loves you too much?

Must be because it was a 5 year (?) "event" here on the East Coast. If you're lucky, you don't know what it's like to wait 5 years for a wave like that.
