French nuclear submarine

In 1967, the French Navy launchedLe Redoutable, its first ballistic missile nuclear-powered submarine, in the presence of General de Gaulle at the Cherbourg naval shipyard. It entered service 1 Dec 1971 with 16 MSBS M-1 missiles aboard. Measuring 128.70 meters long and 10.60 meters wide, Le Redoutable had a top speed (submerged) of 25 knots. After 20 years of service, it was retired in 1991, after 58 patrols and 90,000 hours under water. It was disarmed, and opened for display to the public at La Cité de la Mer, Cherbourg.

The Sailor And The Pirate

A sailor meets a pirate in a bar, and take turns boasting of their adventures on the high seas. The sailor notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, hook, and an eyepatch.

The sailor asks "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?"

The pirate replies "We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out a shark bit my leg off."

"Wow!" said the sailor. "What about your hook"?

"Well...", replied the pirate, "While my men and I were plundering in the middle east, I was caught stealing from a merchant and the punishment for theft in the middle east is the loss of the hand that steals"

"Incredible!" remarked the sailor. "How did you get the eyepatch"?

"A sea gull dropping fell into my eye.", replied the pirate.

"You lost your eye to a sea gull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.

"Well...", said the pirate, "..it was my first day with the hook."
