    I’ve read it was partially refloated but not that it was freed yet. Hopefully that’s a breaking story and correct. Our TP supply is getting low.

    I was think of all the shipping containers loaded with hookah pipes, burkas and hijabs. The entire Middle East is about to go full Jihad over this.

    Those container ships are stacked so high with containers it's a wonder they don't capsize.

    The draft on these large ships is in the 45 to 55 foot range. And they use a lot of ballast to keep them stable.
    However they do somethings screw up like that Rollo car carrier off the coast of Georgia and do capsize. Oops.

    Sounds like it’s free - free at last!

    Dan, they were towing it to some place yesterday afternoon where they can check it over for any damage.

    The truth comes out.
