Always wanted to try the Corinth canal, but the fuddy-duddies at Sixth Fleet were concerned about the sonar domes!
Can you imagine?
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

its a picture of Mirths love life.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

And the ship on the far right is the cruiser Chikuma.

IIRC, Gambier Bay didn't have long to live after that photo was taken.

The 20mm oerlikons were manned by the messmates on Essex.  When the kamikaze hit, avgas spilled off the flight deck and over the guncrews.  They were burned so badly that all the medical crew could do was shoot them up with morphine.  Within half an hour they had all died.

1970 Super Boss Mustang 429 being loaded aboard USS Coral Sea (CV-43)



Quote
In 1970, lawyer and drag racer Al Eckstrand put together a Lawman Racing Team, consisting of two 780hp Boss 429 Mustang drag cars and six 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1s, to tour U.S. military facilities around the world. It was during the Vietnam War, and servicemen were happy to see some of the musclecars from back home. Two Lawman Boss 429s were built, one for Eckstrand demonstrations in Southeast Asia and the other for use as a show car in Europe. The first car was destroyed at sea when an 8-ton ship container fell on it So, Eckstrand hastily finished the second car, which was flown by Air Force transport to the south Pacific. http://www.mustangheaven.com/2015/old-photo-of-1970-lawman-super-boss-429-being-unloaded-in-vietnam/#more-23035
