1. WTF is with all of these ship collusions?

Back in my day, we used something called SONAR (sonic navigation and ranging) to--among other things--prevent this sort of thing. In Grandpa's day, they had a dude up in a basket on the mast with a high-tech little instrument that they called a "spyglass".

This is almost as ridiculous as that apocryphal story about the US-Soviet space race and the Space Pen vs the pencil.
