I guess it's going to be lonely either way.

Poor little ship.

Nah, just look at the Swedish Navy like the Swedish Bikini Team. Children doubt its existence, because they just can't handle the concept. Adults know it's there, theoretically, but they weren't invited to the party. If you know what's good for you, you won't go nosing around without an invitation.

I worry it's going to be the bikini team's towel girl: Essential. Behind the scenes. All alone and wishing it had bigger turrets.

Turrets are overrated - it's all about the... I can't think of a good double entendre.

Yeah, but wanted something with a rhythm, like "The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice with the palace has the brew that is true."

That's a SUPER bad idea. A buddy of mine was cleaning up after a party, collecting empties and tossing discarded cardboard beer packaging into the remains of his bonfire. He was walking past a hissing noise around the fire. It was the last thing he heard properly in that ear. The can of WD40 someone had been goofing around with before hiding it in an "empty" case exploded and made him mostly deaf in his right ear.

To do that inside takes a special brand of stupid.
I'm sorry Dave...

That thing is freakin huge. Whenever I hear about asteroids and comments and, well, anything in space that's not a planet or moon, I have a hard time conceptualizing the size. This helped!
