Eight Sailors Suspended

Can you believe this?

To be honest, I would have charged the foredeck too.

The Onion is a farcical news site, so it will be strange no matter what language it is in.
If they do a MIB III that site will be used instead of paper magazines of the same heritage

Watch great footage about the story of one manís slow odyssey around the UK:

At least they weren't firing broadsides at each other. Yet!?

It would start with water balloons being slung at each other and escalate from there.

I do not think that AC boats get 17 miles from shore.

The whole article is fake, the onion is a fake newspaper that's for humor. Wow I would think that would be clear that its fake. Come on sailors! Swim 17 miles? Yeah I do that in the morning to wake up. Laugh a little, its fun!

Hey!! I swam 17 Miles... Well I was about 20 feet into it when this cute girl in a bikini sat down by the pool and I got out to talk to her... forgetting about the other 16 miles 6056 feet. Left that to the seals.

Hey! She needed comfort from an older virile man... That is my story and I'm sticking to it...


1 nautical mile = 6076.+ feet.
