    At first I thought I would not have skin left on the side of my face... then I realized that was the least of my problems. No part of my bends that well.

      This is not an approved way to transfer crew in the offshore industry

      Very interesting video - that would not be ME doing that transfer suspended by a cable.

            If a Goliath grouper at its maximum is only 8ft.+ then devouring a 4ft. shark is quite a feat! Does it ever suffer from indigestion, I wonder?

              Using a 4 ft. shark as bait is quit optimistic, me think

              This volcano near Rabaul, PNG just about buried the town some 20 years ago: http://volcano.oregonstate.edu/rabaul

              That was not the first either: http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=6999,1026061

              Now it is at it again: http://gcaptain.com/cargo-ships-have...cano-eruption/

              Actually Rabaul harbour is one of the best in that part of the South Pacific. It sits inside a huge crater from ancient times, with the volcano which is now erupting having formed in the center during the earlier eruptions: http://www.volcanolive.com/rabaul1.html

              The bottom of the harbour is strewn with wreck from the Second World War, making it difficult to find a safe anchorage near the port.
              After the war one wreck the Komaki Maru which was near the beach was cut down to suitable height, filled with sand and concrete, connected to the shore with a causeway.
              This became the famous Wreck Wharf in Rabaul, which was used by fairly large ships for many years: http://www.pacificwrecks.com/ships/maru/komaki.html
              I called there many times from 1968 to 1970.

              It appears that it is still in use and did not get buried with much of the town in the 1994 eruption. Here is a GE capture showing it still in use by small vessels:

                There are is more unbelievable creatures living in the deep ocean then we normal people know about.
                Here is one seen at over 5000 ft. depth by a ROV while inspecting Marine riser on an unnamed rig in the GOM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsBwVKtvrpg

                Before you ask, here is the answer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deepstaria_enigmatica

                Here is another monster of the deep (maybe??): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKtkNVLHqeg
                Is it an jokerectus internetus??? Or a badly decomposed Orca carcass??

                  Deep seas life is fascinating.Almost as much as French governing one...

                I can't view either of the youtube ones - the usual notice about having to have Safety Mode disabled. I have just Googled Safety Mode to see what that is all about and, while it is no doubt OK for protecting one's little kiddywinkies from what they shouldn't see, it is the usual blanket operation and will include innocuous things as well. However, as there is enough rubbish floating about the net I'll not bother to change it. The Wiki item was interesting, but then deep sea creatures inhabit a world relatively unkown to us. As far as the Orca remains go, even without seeing them I can imagine that that was what the video showed!

                  Neither my ISP nor my anti-virus programme have Parental Control activated. I.E.Tools tells me that Content Control is not activated, but I can't find the equivalent Tools bit in Firefox. Not that I see it as a problem, really. I doubt whether there is anything in Windows itself.
                  I shall just have to go on knowing that I shall never know! But it's not the end of the world.
                  Later: Just found the relevant passage in Windows Control Panel. It doesn't look as if any parental control is on.
                  Time for a "fika", methinks. WITHOUT any "L".

                  Just to check - then I'll leave you alone in your world of innocence and purity becoming of a lady - in Youtube, if you scroll to the bottom of the page, there is a little Youtube logo, then to the right of it a language selector, then a thing to say which country you're in (or would like to be in!), then a 'Safety' button. That is 'off' isn't it?

                Mark - you hit the nail on the head for me! It was "on". Now who did that????? Was it Google, because it is apparently tied up with Google Safe Search? Either way I never touched nuffin' nowhere, 'onest.
                All OK now, many thanks.

                  How does children react when their parents try to tell them how children are made and where they come from?

                  In this video, you may get some insight into the question.... I have to admit, I laughed hard at some of the replies.

                    There is more in the deep ocean then what we know: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6549161.stm

                    ​PS> Both catching Toothfish with longlines and Orange Roughy by deep water trawling was Norwegian "inventions", as was fishing Alaskan Pollock in large quantities to produce Surami for the Japanese market. One person was instrumental in two of them.
