That's a Flight 10 upgrade.

Apparently. Next we'll buy a used American assault ship and convert it into an icebreaker.
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

An icebreaker that catches fire when it contacts ice.

But it catches fire after every shot.
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.

Just to be different...the largest cruise ship in the world (well, one of two, the Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas)...





Over 225,000 tons.
Max speed, just over 22 knots.
$1.2 billion (with a 'b') to build.
16 passenger decks.
6,296 passenger capacity.
2,384 crew capacity.
A total of 8,680 souls aboard if maxed out.

This thing is insane.

Where's the VLS? Or the CIWS mounts?

The pools slide back to reveal the VLS.

The people in balcony staterooms are the chaff. When activated, they are forcibly ejected out of their staterooms over the side. They're all so sunburned over their pasty white bodies that they also doubly serve as flares.
