    Which one? The pilot of that ship? Because I get the feeling that he probably wishes he still had it too Seriously; somebody must have lost their job over that. I can't imagine that being less than a few hundred thousand dollars worth of damage...probably more like a few million...

    I could tell you stories about failed docking attempts that I have seen while I was in the navy...

    That is pretty funny though.

    This is like watching a woman in a big SUV trying to park in a space 3cm too small.

    Looks kinda fake, i mean the water in the front of the ship did not move so much and at the speed the ship arrives there would be more i think + the flag did not move so much, i imagine there would be some air pushed around.

    its a metal scrap yard somewhere in india.

    They drove it up like that so it wouldn't float away while they take it apart.

    This is done on purpose. This is a beach in India that breaks up old ships. As you can see the two ships on either side have already been broken up.

    They run the ship at full power to beach the ship then the laborers will start tearing it apart.

    Sadly the whole area is contaminated with waste oil and other dangerous material
    And that would be the captain, not the pilot.

    Hey, i've read enough tom clancy novels to know about some XO,CSO's, Admirals and captains.

    wonder if them indians know that oil in there is as valuable as when it was put in.

    ahhaha lets pour 10,000$ worth of lubricant out onto the beach, but i guess when you don't have the money for all that sort of re-processing equipment, but you still need the metal and what not, gotta do what you gotta do to eat and put stuff on the table for the fam.


    I always wondered why we didn't move all our manufacturing to mexico, instead of china/india back in the 80-90's. you'd think that would of been a smarter deal.

    probably wouldn't of had/ be having the mass exodus out of mexico like were seeing.hahah but if i was stuck in mexico, i'd probably try to dodge some cops while carrying some crack also.

    The people who sent manufacturing there were thinking of short-term financial gains, not of the long term well-being of their country/continent.
