Tumblr Thread: The Still On-Patrol Submarines

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.

Joke for sail. 

Last year, an online competition to name a ship for the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) resulted in the stupid and embarrassing name "Boaty McBoatface." It was so stupid and embarrassing that they refused to name their $244,520,000 ship that and named it after David Attenborough instead. 

But that wasn't the last you've heard of Boaty McBoatface. 

NERC has finally smashed a bottle of champaign and christened a submarine "Boaty McBoatface" and is sending it straight to Antarctica. Thankfully, it's an unmanned sub, so no self-respecting captain will have to pilot something so humiliating.

This is the Lover's Deep, a luxury submarine that rich people can rent to have sex in under the sea. It costs $145,000/night per person though and there's a two-night minimum, so unless you're planning on bringing a love doll for the least romantic getaway of all time, the minimum stay with another human being will set you back $580,000. I suggest going Dutch.

Wait for it....





Wait for it....







It's a submarine! For Just around $150,000 a night, you can get freaky on the ocean floor in a romantic deep-sea cruise. That is, once you're done polishing your monocle collection and sneering at the "poors" that are still taking vacations on terra firma.

The fine folks at Hammacher Schlemmer - the masters of producing overpriced luxury novelty goods - have hit it out of the park with this personal mini-submarine designed to look like an orca whale. If you have an extra $100,000 to spend I cannot recommend it highly enough.
