Re: U.S. Navy Destroyer Collides With Merchant Ship Near Japan

Very sad, the explanation is going to be interesting.

I visited a US warship in the k@kplaas once, they have 24/24 gunners on the deck covering all 360° around the ship watching for hostile activity. And of course radar and other electronic surveillance.

Re: United Airlines flight suffered fuel leak

Possibly a fuel dump valve opened inadvertently or by some technical problem. Another stronger possibility is the "overflow", actually a surge tank at the wingtip to capture excess fuel, may have had fuel in it.

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2017

Shitty Lodge, what a ripoff. I ran a quick check on the price for a room for one person - R1500 for one night and it seems you have to pay more if you share a room, forgive me if I am wrong. I'm in the USA right now at a similar hotel, the price is $80 per night and I can have 5 people in the room a...
