The United States Navy

  1. This is a transcript of an actual radio transmission between a US Navy Vessel and the Canadians off the coast of Newfoundland in 1995. Released by the Chief of Naval Operations.

    Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid collision.

    US Ship: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid collision.

    Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    Canadians: Negative. I say again, you will have to divert your course.

    US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER, USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST VESSEL IN THE UNITED STATES ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS, AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY AGAIN, 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTERMEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP AND ITS ESCORT VESSELS.

    Canadians: We're a Lighthouse. Your call.
     
  2. Those Canadians are just too damn stubborn. They should have changed their course 15 degrees north like they were told.

    LOL
