Wow, we almost named our kids Thurwayne and Thurmesha..
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Yeah, the ship came out fine but I bet in a real life situation, the humans inside would have broken bones at the least. Still its awesome life boats can survive this.

Not only can they survive this, this is how they're designed to be launched. Everyone inside would be wearing a 5 point safety harness, sitting backwards, and I believe have a head strap to help prevent whiplash.

OK, so there would be a messy clean up needed inside the craft after launch. ;)

I understand that those things are designed for oil platforms, so if there's a fire, you want to be able to get to that thing, and take the drop.

Any one else find it amusing that comic uses devoutly religious figures as examples of people who "agree" with John Lennon? I find the song as a whole childish. It espouses erasing differences among, when we should be celebrating them.

But it sold a lot of records.

Lennon vastly oversimplified the problem. War has its uses and reasons. If he'd thrown in a few verses (many would probably really be needed) to address those issues, it would have been better received.

Nobody'd be saying anything if so many people didn't take the song as a profound message.

my grandfather-in-law, who served in the royal navy during wwii and saw more combat than either of us could imagine and was tough. as. nails. would always cry when he he heard that song

always

it's not meant to be a frigging blueprint, man, just a statement of ideals

or better yet: a song
