wreck ship

On This Day In History -- 25 May 1982

After shooting down three Skyhawks, Coventry and her comrade Broadsword came under attack by four A-4 Skyhawks. The first wave each carried one 1,000 lb bomb, while the second carried three 250 kg bombs each. They flew so low that Coventry’s radar couldn’t distinguish them from land, and failed to lock on. Of the bombs released, one struck Broadsword’s deck and failed to explode, wrecking the ship’s Lynx helicopter. The second pair of skyhawks headed for Coventry. With her Sea Darts not locking on and her 20mm cannon jammed, only rifles and machine gunners were left to defend Coventry. She was struck by three bombs just above the water line, on the port side. One bomb exploded beneath the computer room, destroying it and the nearby operations room, incapacitating almost every senior officer. The other entered the forward engine room, exploding beneath the junior ratings dining room, and the ship immediately listed to port. The latter hit caused critical damage, as it breached the bulkhead between the forward and aft engine rooms; exposing the largest open space in the ship to uncontrollable flooding.

Within twenty minutes, Coventry was abandoned and capsized, sinking shortly after. Twenty of her crew were killed and 29 injured. Afvter the ship was struck, her crew, waiting to be rescued, sang “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” from Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

Basically ??? only wants to make his father (Saeran) proud of him ((in this AU, we continue from Jumin’s After Ending && Saeran was not rescued and everyone went on with their lives)) – also he steals Saeran’s eyeliner just like how Seojun steals Saeyoung’s makeup for cosplay lmao

Take a trip to Navagio Beach

Navagio Beach, or Shipwreck Beach as it is known, is undoubtedly the most famous beach in Greece, and home to the wreck of a ship that ran aground here in 1980. It is only accessible by water, but is definitely worth the trip to see the beautiful cove and spend time on it’s white sandy beach. 

Although you need to take your own amenities as there are no facilities… and the only little bit of shade you’ll find is in the shadow of the wreck.

An ethereal and seductive world is established in three acts as Florence traverses through the elements. Directed by Willo Perron, inspiration is drawn from Florence’s relationship to the alchemical symbols of water, air and fire. The film is broken into a three-act sequence, where Florence opens submerged in water, dances with the wind, and ultimately reckons with fire.

  • • they are both left with bruises all over by morning
  • • instead of "I love you" It's a lot of "Fuck you" and stupid smiling followed by things like "You imbecile" and just a thousand loving/hateful insults
  • • they don't do things like hold hands or kiss cheeks; soft stuff like that isn't their thing
  • • Alex is a fighter; he absolutley doesn't fall at Jeffersons feet, and he absolutley doesn't beg for anything from the man
  • • Alex likes to play with Thomas' hair all the time, to the point of sometimes annoying Thomas
  • • Alex blurted out "I love you" in like the second week and it's the only time he's ever seen Thomas flustered and nervous
  • • Thomas cried after saying "I love you" a month later and Alex makes fun of him for it

So, I dove back into Tales of Series after two years of hiatus, wondering what was going one after a brief look on tales of Zestiria and boy…  
Did I miss a wonderful news? After over 20 years, we finally got a solely female protagonist?

Can this be one of the battle victory quotes or somewhat like this Bandai?

115th Anniversary of the Antikythera Mechanism's Discovery
Today's Google Doodle

On this date in 1902, Greek archaeologist Valerios Stais sifted through some artifacts from a shipwreck at Antikythera. The wrecked Roman cargo ship was discovered two years earlier, but Stais was the first to notice an intriguing bit of bronze among the treasures. It looked like it might be a gear or wheel. That corroded chunk of metal turned out to be part of the Antikythera Mechanism, an ancient analog astronomical computer.

The Antikythera Mechanism tracked planetary positions, predicted lunar and solar eclipses, and even signaled the next Olympic Games. It was probably also used for mapping and navigation. A dial on the front combines zodiacal and solar calendars, while dials on the back capture celestial cycles. Computer models based on 3-D tomography have revealed more than 30 sophisticated gears, housed in a wooden and bronze case the size of a shoebox.
