Fronts of ships falling off
I saw this very enlightening video on facebook. It explains how oil tankers are built to the highest possible standards so the fronts don't fall off...

Lol, seen this one many times. Classic.

A man should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself. -Ferris Bueller

That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs but what a ship is... what the Black Pearl really is... is freedom. -Jack Sparrow

The pair are very good comedians and have been doing that gig on our Government station for a while. Look up some of their other comedy series. The one they did on Sydney building up for the Olympics was also pretty good. Smile

Liberty ships had a wee bit of a problem in WWII.

And yes, that's not a liberty ship, I couldn't find a picture of one that had broken up on the Murmansk run, they sank too quickly I guess. The concept is still the same.
