When you see HMS Victory, you just cannot imagine how so many men could live and work on it for months on end, as big as it is. Its very awe inspiring.

ask Windy.  he served on both.
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.

Outstanding Mirth.
Any chance there is a cache of more photos someplace? 
Thanks so much for sharing this image.

I would love to make it over to Portsmouth some day to see the Victory. I saw the Constitution in Boston once.

Bes, I found both of those pics in Reddit's "History Porn" subreddit. It's a trove of neat old pics.
