Happy New Year

Murdoc hadn’t been planning to take a break, but it was refreshing.

So here’s a picture of some ships drag racing:

    1. Yeah, but they’re sure smoking along.

      NASCAR should add a fuel tanker truck at 150mph and allow the cars to top off their tanks without leaving the track.

      What could possibly go wrong?

  1. I can’t help it that NASCAR is slow.
    USN has been doing this since before WWII.
    Fun to watch but a pain if you’re on the working party…
