All My Exes Live In Texas, That's Why I Hang My Hat On The ONT!

Friday night and spring is in the air, so how about a little music to get us ready for summer?

Yes, I know Harry Belafonte is a leftist POS, but there's still nothing like lying on the sand with a rum drink in hand while listening to some Calypso music.

Warship Showdown: 5 Naval Battles That Transformed History Forever

Midway doesn't make the list, although they say they considered Guadalcanal and the Battle of the Philippine Sea. I see their point, but Midway is a better WWII candidate IMO. Japan wasn't ever going to be able to come back from the loss of 4 carriers (to say nothing of the complete decimation of the pilot complement of Shōkaku and Zuikaku at Coral Sea a month earlier) against the industrial might of the US. During the war the US fielded 119 carriers (all types), while Japan only managed 25 (all types). To my knowledge the Japanese only completed one fleet carrier after the start of hostilities (Taiho, and she was a honey. Too bad her damage control wasn't up to snuff*). The US built 24 Essex class carriers alone.

*During the Battle of the Philippine Sea, USS Albacore put a single fish in her side. The damage was minor, but it did rupture one of her av-gas tanks. An inexperienced damage control officer opened all of her ventilators in an attempt to vent the fumes from the leaking tank, and soon gas vapor filled the ship. One ignition source and...BOOM! No more Taiho.

1 Dead, 3 Injured After Tanker Truck Explodes In South Arkansas

From Facebook:

Today in Camden Arkansas a truck driver carrying ammonium nitrate brakes caught on fire, while driving the operator of the rig noticed the fire called 911. He turned his rig down an abandoned stretch of highway where there was no houses or buildings. He parked the truck and while first responders were evacuating houses he was trying to put out the fire when the tanker exploded blowing a 15ft crater in the road killing the driver who put his life before others to keep them safe. The explosion was felt a hundred miles away. The driver was the only casualty in this accident his name was Randall McDougal 63 years old.

Herodotus Was Right!

Nile shipwreck discovery proves Herodotus right – after 2,469 years

In the fifth century BC, the Greek historian Herodotus visited Egypt and wrote of unusual river boats on the Nile. Twenty-three lines of his Historia, the ancient world’s first great narrative history, are devoted to the intricate description of the construction of a “baris”.

For centuries, scholars have argued over his account because there was no archaeological evidence that such ships ever existed. Now there is. A “fabulously preserved” wreck in the waters around the sunken port city of Thonis-Heracleion has revealed just how accurate the historian was.
