Anyway when people find out I was a submariner, I always get the same question amoung others...how deep does a submarine go. Well my answer is always that's one of those numbers I can't talk about, but they press the question and ask something rediculous like well can't they go like 30,000 feet down. I just shake my head but I guess most don't understand that you get 44 psi for every 100 feet of depth and the sheer surface area of a submarine can't handle all that much combined pressure so I guess the real number is very underwhelming.
    Many years ago I tended bar. I didn't drink, couldn't stand the smell of the stuff after being around it all for a few weeks. There are two guys at the bar one night. One was in the navy and did the submarine thing. The other is going on and on asking questions. I can see the guy is tried of answering stupid questions. The man asks him if they can go down when they want. I just roll my eyes but burst out laughing when I hear the sailor reply's. He said, You know one time were were suppose to go out on training. Well we just couldn't stand the captain so we made sure we left him behind. We stayed down at the bottom and played cards until he found us. " The guy is going you are kidding how did you get away with that. I am laughing so hard and give the sailor a free drink. He said to me there is always someone who asks the most stupid things.

    Doing air shows with the C-5 and when people would comment how big it was I would just tell them they should see the box it came in.
