Elevators seem to have the hardest time functioning. That must be the dumbest tech industry ever.

The word to look for is Otis. You want to get in an Otis, not a Chang.

thyssen-krupp is a big elevator company.  always gives me pause seeing their logo because the krupp name comes from the military industrial dynasty in germany that equipped the nazis in their quest for global domination.  but now they make elevators so it’s cool.

Thyssenkrupp also makes stainless steel.  I know this because for the Rio Olympics, global tariffs & trade policies made it less expensive to mine ore in Brazil, send it to the USA to be refined into stainless steel, then send it back to Rio for use.

My brother was the chief field engineer for the refinery that was built in South Alabama.  As soon as the work was complete, the facility was put up for sale.

Well, shit.

 

Do y'all think they made a bad move while backing down on that [ Sail / Sword / Marlin ]?

Image may contain: ocean, sky, outdoor, water and nature

It’s a marlin, pretty good size but by no means huge and if I remember right it happened in Panama. Captain really fucked up and was driving like a dumbass.

Did they recover or totally swamp?

The boat sank. Quickly. When those pictures were first posted 7 or 8 years ago there were a bunch of articles out there with headlines like “Giant Marlin Sinks Boat”. There were some funny internet arguments. A lot of morons out there that don’t understand fishing or boating or physics. They could have been hooked up to a 1/2 pound minnow and the same thing would have happened.

So it was a backing down issue & not the fish.  1st I've seen on this particular incident.  Inexperienced captain?  Bad swell caught them off guard on the backing?

Yeah I’ve got no idea on his experience but when you are backing down on a fish there are times you will start to fill the cockpit with water and the scuppers can’t keep up. Some is ok, but once you get too much you have to correct it by going forward and if the boat has one you can open the door in the transom (tuna door) to release the water. We’ve had to do that a few times. Looks like this captain didn’t do anything.

I've seen a mother hen fuck a raccoon up to keep it away from her chicks. Pretty sure she pecked out an eye at the point it finally ran off.

Not so fast my friend - “  The biggest minnow species at up to 10 feet long and almost 140 pounds is the Giant Barb Catlocarpio siamensis, found in southeast Asia where it is sometimes kept in ponds for food.”

Not sure I’d trust anything coming out of Ohio State though.

Little bit shitty driving, mostly physics. If you're strong enough to keep it together until you slow down you won't become road pizza. Had it happen to me a couple times. Real sphincter tightener.
