Your daily WTF


Is a 200' personal luxury diesel-electric submarine. I remember hearing about these guys back in the tech bubble days, and it looks like they're still there. It also looks like their meat and potatoes is commercial sight seeing subs.

I have no idea how much this would cost, but I'm guessing eight figures. Seems a lot to spend for something that doesn't have torpedo tubes ...

I want one.

Meh... $78 million and we don't even get torpedo tubes? At the very least, the thing should come with a nice deck gun. No thanks, I'll pass.

I'm sure there's an "open source" solution to affixing torpedos. :-)
Or maybe a "cloaking device" would be a better countermeasure?

Forget the torpedo tubes! for that kind of money I would want vertical launch tubes and the actual ICBM's as part of any bargain...

WHAT? No torpedoes. Not even a deck gun? How, just tell me how, are we to use this for that Somalia Pirate Hunting Safari we're planning?

Why does it have a flag on the stern? Unless the fish care...

Man I can't believe I am the only one who knows who these folks sell to: Drug runners.

Sigh...
