Canadian Submarine in Distress

From Jan, apparently a Canadian submarine, non-nuclear, off the coast of Ireland is in big trouble with 9 injuries and drifting with no power.

I did not know that the Canadian navy had submarines but actually, they have four diesel subs they bought from England in 1998. Here's the press release from the Canadian Navy. The press release gives the rationale for buying them and the specifications of the boats.

ha! We have three submarines (minus one now, I guess)... including one fully operational submarine stations in the Edmonton mall for visitors to admire it... far far away from ANY source of water watsoever... oh Jesus! An we're a part of NATO???

Speaking of weird facts... did you know Nebraska (of all places!!!) has the most Admirals in all the US states! Including one that's 13 years old.
