remember RSS Courageous? who was shorn in half by the Dutch-registered container vessel? and remember asking yourself why this horrible horrible thing had happened? well now we know.
maybe some day soon i'll be able to feel sympathy for the guy who made the mistake. but right now, i'm too incensed to even think straight. what the ____ was he thinking? maritime rules exist for a reason and i happen to know that you don't make officer without learning them damn well. for goodness sakes you can't get a boating licence without knowing them by heart. so what happened here?
is there a reason?
