    DOS BOOT!

    Das Boot is actually one of my favorite movies…

    No wonder it crashed if it was a DOS Boot.

    Remember, the trick is to turn it as the bubble comes.

    Washed ashore?! Something like that doesn’t just wash ashore, definitely not far enough out of water as to be fully exposed at least.

    “An empty German submarine was washed ashore on the beach in front of Denmark Place (Hastings, UK) in 1919. The submarine U118 had broken its towrope on the way from Cherbourg to Scapa Flow. It was welcomed as an unusual Easter attraction until a build-up of chlorine gas poisoned a group of coastguards, one of whom died on 21 February 1920. U118 was an extremely large submarine for its time and having surrendered to France on 23rd February 1919, it was eventually broken up at Brest during July 1921.”
