If Submarines are so cool, why is it that in all the movies the guys are always sweating it out. Shocked
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

He would know if it did or not.  I'm sure he was the one that took the picture.  Hold old were you there Ed, mid 20's?
