The Venezuelan Navy offshore patrol vessel Naiguata, sent to intercept a lowly cruise ship, accidentally owned itself on Monday.

I need to read more 'news' webpages that use the word 'owned'

Am I missing something?

Crew at sea for 9 months, IE: definitely not covid anything.

Parties next to boat around no one but themselves?


Sounds legit.
Depends on how many "strippers" they hired...

Those motherfuckers wouldn't know a hand delivered recruiting video if it bit them in the ass.

Seriously, we're all over here in US going 'eh bro, you like video games?'

Show that to ANY UK adolescent and you've got yourself a willing and able fleet!

My town's Harbormaster could use one of those.
He's been jealous ever since the MRAP showed up.

Surprised this hasn't been posted yet:


Talking with my brother, former nuclear engineer, the fuel-oil is stored well below the water-line in coffer-dams, should be fairly safe (but not impossible to burn), most likely it's lubricating fuel and basically anything that's not steel at this point, with the fire-chief saying it may burn "down to the waterline" at this point.

I'm not going to say I know nothing about the military practice of cleaning tools and other things with fuel...

This part is funny:

Rear Adm. Philip Sobeck, commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 3, told reporters Sunday evening that while "there was a report of an internal explosion," the Navy is still unclear on the cause of the fire. He insists the ship will sail again.
I mean, yeah, they might have to tow the hull somewhere to scuttle it...

Should be fine, since jet fuel can't melt steel, right?

Apparently not
