    1. Looks like an Iowa class battleship, but I believe one of the Iowa’s turrets are non-functioning after it blew itself up. Could be pre-explosion though.


    2. There’s really no need for battle ships anymore… 🙁


      • It’s not a boat, it’s a ship (by any of the bajillion definitions of it)… Ocean-going? Check. Carries boats? Check. Cannot be carried by any other ship? Check. Capable of sustained independent operations? Checkity-check.

        And yes, it’s an Iowa (pre-mothballing, probably – which would make this picture older than the WWW).


        • I would have eaten my own left foot if somebody didn’t come on and “correct” me. Innernets…Where someone is always smarter!


          Does it float? It’s a fucking boat.


          • Definition of boat: a small vessel for travel on water

            Is it small? No. So its not a fucking boat…

            Definition of ship: A water-borne vessel larger than a boat.

            Ummm this thing is huge, so yes its a fucking ship and not a boat.

            Go troll on 4chan ya redneck retard..


            • I am not a troll…I’m a princess.

              It’s a boat…So there!


            • From the US Navy Slang Glossary on Wikipedia:
              Boat: Water craft small enough to be carried on a ship, unless a submarine, which is ALWAYS called a boat. A ship may be called a boat but ONLY by members of its crew, and only those who have actually completed a deployment.

              The moral of the story is that the definition is too fukked up to argue about. Seriously people it’s 2010, I thought arguing on the internet would have died out by now.


            • I was deployed on the Minnow…With The Skipper, The Professor (he’s sexy) and Mary Anne…It was a three hour cruise…A three hour cruise!

              I wasn’t arguing in so much as being amazed at how rabid someone may become because I misused a word.

              I own a canoe. I think from now on to be sure I will call it a hovercraft.

              My canoe is named the HMCS Tom Thompson…Which is funny…In a uniquely Canadian way.


    3. The strength of twice three thousand horse
      That serve the one command;
      The hand that heaves the headlong force,
      The hate that backs the hand:
      The doom-bolt in the darkness freed,
      The mine that splits the main;
      The white-hot wake, the ‘wildering speed–
      The Choosers of the Slain!
