That ship looks like it's loaded for... er, bear!

Is that the Kuznetzov in the backgound?

yup.  Mirth is feeling red today.
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.

Brant is sort of right- look at the wake. That flattop is making a very sharp turn and those things can go upwards of thirty knots. What would happen to your car if you were going over thirty and you suddenly spun the wheel hard to the right?

I'll buy that. The deck is clear. They're either hot dogging or practicing because that's as close to a calm sea on the open water as you could ask for.

I'm with 'Wing. It looks legit. They're likely doing some kind of speed test or builders trial. I think the max speed of the Nimitz CVNs is classified. It's given as 30-plus knots.
