Mondays, they're like that

Can't let go of the weekend, but can't make the jump to the work week.

Again! Another high tech warship knocks heads with a freighter

USS John S. McCain collides with merchant ship near Strait of Malacca.  Come on, how hard is it to keep from running into another ship, even in a crowed sea lane, where one would think you'd be hyper vigilant?

Beautiful boat.

The collision was reported at 6:24 a.m. Japan Standard Time, while the ship was transiting to a routine port visit in Singapore.
Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft.

Update: Not good.  

Ten US sailors were missing after a US destroyer collided with a merchant vessel in southeast Asia, the second serious accident involving American Navy ships in the region in little more than two months.
Search and rescue efforts were launched  after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with the Alnic MC east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, the US 7th Fleet said in a statement.
The destroyer was currently sailing under its own power and heading to port.

Dave sees the issue

Maybe that's because the DNC have no time to raise funds. They are all out instigating rioting a in cities, burning USA flags, plotting sedition & race wars.

He ran away because he couldn't stand his name

Cats prefer names like 'Ranger' or 'Whiskers.'  And don't call them a "Fluffy Rag Doll."  They have their pride.

Background: our current TV is about 15 years old, and is only the third TV the wife and I have ever owned as adults.  We usually stream content over the internet through our computers nowadays, and rarely turn the tube on. We literally never watch regular TV channels.  He thinks we could do all that we do do with this big screen, in 4G.
