3. Head up, drop everything and....

OR...

4. Grab a camera and start shooting video with a voice track.


His decision to choose #4 is an interesting one.


Also,

Note the shore power cord wrapped several times around the stantion (conviently missing it's upper life line).

I don't know which is worse -- that this is an example of his seamanship, or that he actually took video and posted it.

And the fact that you knew that and was able to relate it using good grammar and proper punctuation shows just how old you are!

(and I knew that too - sorry for the mistake!)
