War is absurd. But nevertheless every month somewhere on the globe war is going on. Or they are preparing for the next unfriendly act. No religion did stop that. Maybe some religions gave fuel. And all those engineers too. I would like to have submarines for underwater tourism – not for military demands …

There used to be a cold-war russian sub as a tourist attraction in Victoria’s Harbour – really like being inside a tin can and no vacation for the claustrophobic. Although I don’t condone what they represent I do admire the men who are brave enough to go down in them… With all that technology you’d think a moon base would be easy!
I once went with my father to the Paterson Museum in Paterson, New Jersey. Paterson was one of the earliest major industrial cities in the U.S. due to the power from the falls there. In the museum, there is an old submarine called the Finean Ram by John Phillip Holland.
thank you for the link!
“… operated by a crew of three men
and, on one occasion, submerged
to a depth of 65 feet for 2 ½ hours…” –
well, that at least, has changed …
Gorgeous pictures and I agree with underwater tourism.
I love the penguin and tiger pictures 🙂
it seems, there are ocean tigers – surprise, surprise …
Thanks Frizz, my son is a submariner and he would make a great underwater tour guide 🙂
for sure he has an interesting, but difficult job!
