Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    It's owned by a Hong Kong company, and Panamanian registered. So not sure what the hell you are talking about?

    Rock got beat up by a French badminton player once, and has held a grudge ever since.

    Seems it would be better to sink it in deep water than let it run aground. The French navy needs some target practice anyway.

    Why sink it, looks modern enough to be worth recovery.

    Up date, if the towing op fails and it runs aground it will be cut up for scrap. I suppose they will try to salvage what they can of the cargo but if those "digging machines" are under sea water I doubt they will be very dependable.

    Bet the ship is owned by a New York Jewish law firm with "front" offices in Hong Kong, registered in Panama, had a crew from India/Pakistan with cooks/kitchen crew from Indonesia and ships' officers either from England or Norway. That's typical of modern-day merships :wink

    The fuel leak would be a mess to the coast. Hope they can get it righted and away from the coast.

    300 tonnes of fuel = 9500 gallons!

    That's approximately 10 of those tanker trucks you see delivering to your local Shell station.

    Not quite 10 trucks. Most tankers carry 5,000 - 10,000 gallons.

    Error was in the first number. There was a zero missing.
