Re: Ouch!

Wow...ship sandwich!

Watch out for the soap-bar grip effect....that Chinese boat might squirt out from between the frigates at an amazing rate of knots....

The activist's boat subsequently underwent some rapid name changes: Burr-Ning, Lis-Ting, Sing-King. Told you renaming was bad luck...

Re: Ouch!

Just a random thought.....what proportion of bodyweight in blubber and baleen does the average Chinese activist carry?
