11. Seeing something like that coming...
...would bring a whole new meaning to "poop deck"

18. If the yeoman is steering...
You are in more trouble than just the storm.

Steering is a Boatswain's, Quartermaster or Able Bodied Seaman's job...not the captain's secretary's.

23. Serves me right - trying to get all sailor-y...
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 02:22 PM by Richardo
Of course I meant "helmsman", which may not have been right, either.

Reporting for keel-haul, Hawker.

3. This can't be real, how can the water possibly be that calm?

That picture didn't really make any sense as a hurricane.

8. Looks like the wall cloud on an ordinary supercell t-storm
Nice photoshop and/or rendering job.

12. It's still a neat picture
It's just not a picture of Hurricane Isabel, or any other hurricane.

14. Thank you!
I thought it looked 'wrong'. Why would any ship be heading toward a hurricane, especially a tanker running empty (note how high out of the water the hull is...If you have to run into a hurricane, a tanker would fill the tanks with seawater to lower the center of gravity)

19. On second look, not a tanker
Not enough piping on deck, too many hatches. Bulk cargo, ore or grain or something.
I don't know weather on the Great Lakes; but don't they have nasty storms sometimes? Or was that just the song (Edmund Fitzgerald)?

9. Wish I had my camera and scanner right now in London, at the
Swiss Cottage Library where Isabel 's twin sister appears to be having a major tantrum right outside the window - it's blown all the leaves off the sycamores and stuck them to the panes, so you can't even see outside......

13. Camden? It's a gulag infested by
Alistair Campbell (don't go jogging near the heath unless you want to catch something nasty and sexed up...) Stephen Byers (whose staff know how to bury bad news) and various chums of no 1 Blair asshole Lord Levy, currently sucking up to Ras Putin's oil chums in Turkmenistan on Tony's behalf...) And, oh: various money launderers, property squatters, and convicted felon chums of Dubya....

25. WOw that is cool. I just talked to my friend in Poquoson
Still no power. The house he lives in is destroyed pretty much but he had moved all of his stuff out. A bunch of the guys were calling him "chicken" and said he was overreacting.....they lost all their stuff, his was in at his workplace.

The picture is tripped out.
