So... everyone's safe in Venezuela?
$500 screwdrivers is why you didn't vote for the President?
I work for the President. That's a lot.
It's wasteful spending.
No, it's not.
A $400 ashtray?
Jack picks up a wrench and smashes an ashtray that's on his desk. It breaks into three large chunks.
What was that?
A $400 ashtray. It's off the U.S.S. Greenville, a nuclear attack submarine and a likely target for a torpedo. When you get hit with one, you've got enough problems without glass flying into the eyes of the navigator and the Officer of the Deck. This one's built to break into three dull pieces. We lead a slightly different life out there and it costs a little more money.
I can't believe you broke a $400 ashtray.
Abraham Lincoln said that reading “is the key to already-
solved problems . . . and a facility for successfully pursuing
the unsolved ones.” With this in mind, the Navy has collected forty-two books that will help all levels of Navy leaders hone their craft. The books chosen for the list will help Sailors garner a better understanding of war, culture, history, leadership, critical thinking, and management.
I'm honestly a bit surprised that submariners can still bring their own Kindles, etc. Wasn't the NeRD locked down to avoid even the appearance of a security issue?
The Navy doesn’t allow iPads on submarines; they’re too dangerous. Spies could use the camera to record inside, and cell signals could betray its location when it surfaces. Similar precautions apply to Kindles and other e-readers.
