Google Sightseeing found a tanker. It is huge.
I followed their link to wikipedia and found the Knock Nevis which I knew as Jahre Viking. I think my father has sailed aboard her (or the Jahre Trader). The Google Sightseeing people may have found Berge Stahl according to the comments on their page. I've been aboard Berge Boss, though.
It was fun.
Alright, Babylon 5 season three is eerily similar to Star Wars Eps I and II. Maybe that's why Eyrie Productions has an arc with Federation Senator Palpatine and Earth Alliance Senator Clark working together. Then there's the whole Night Watch sub-plot. I won't go into that.
An episode started with Ivanova talking about a dream I recently remembered having. (Remembered having, but don't actually know I had it.) That's the one where you feel a tooth that's loose or about to fall out.
B5 is basically a space opera, just like any other soap opera on TV except that it is science fiction. It's funny, too. The graphics are good, but they're obviously computer generated. It looks like a computer game sometimes.
I have lived in four cities: Pune, Mumbai, Los Angeles, and Charleston. Pune doesn't count; I grew up in Mumbai. All three (Mumbai, L.A., Charleston) have been on the coast. Mumbai and L.A. on the west, Chas on the east. All three have not been a capital -- state capitals don't count for much in India, though Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra. California's capital is Sacramento, and SC's is Columbia. All three could be mistaken for a capital which it isn't. Mumbai could be India's capital, L.A. could be California's, Chas has been SC's.
All have been associated with movies. Mumbai::Bollywood, L.A.::Hollywood, and Chas... well, many movies have been shot around the old Cooper River bridges, including Die Hard 3.
Each has been on a different Ocean: Indian (with some cheating as Mumbai is actually on the Arabian Sea), Pacific, and Atlantic. Each has been in the center of racial, ethnic, or "civil" violence: Mumbai has had the 1993 riots (and others?), L.A.'s infamous early 90s riots (and others?) and Charleston's Fort Sumter -- where the U.S. Civil War started.
In each city, I've been associated with an institute of higher education. That's not hard, considering that I've only lived in four places and was in an institute of *lower* education (a.k.a. elementary school) in Pune. Okay, now I'm reaching too far.
