First satellites, now submarines…what’s next ?

Last week two Russian and US satellites collided with each other – smashing each to smithereens.   Today the UK media have reported the collision two weeks ago between UK and French nuclear submarines in the middle, IN THE MIDDLE, of the North Atlantic Ocean !

Both submarines had switched off their sonar devices so as to remain invisible to the other and, get this, the French submarine did not even know it had been hit until it returned to base.

All of a sudden driving along US-101 or the M25 seems strangely safe.  But joking aside you kinda wonder what our taxes actually buy – seems to me a whole lot of incompetence.
