    First of all, if someone cracks a joke about them being called "seamen" in the article, I will kill you. :lol:

    But anyway, this is sort of reminding me of the incident with the miners in Pennsylvania a couple years ago. Hopefully they get these guys out alive...

    Dear goodness, how many times has this happened? Russians must have horrible luck when it comes to submarines or something. Good luck to them, anyways... hopefully they'll make it out.

    I was just thinking that, didn't another Russian sub go down last year or something?

    Apparently this one got caught in a large fishing net off the Pacific coast near California and is in about 650 feet of water.

    Well, if I remember correctly, it happened last year or two years ago... and I seem to recall it happening at least two other times before that, too.

    This reminds me of those tense underwater movies, like something something Red October. I hope those guys get out alive.

    Kursk* And this time instead of 118 people, it's just a mini-sub carrying 7 guys. But at least this time Russia is actually asking for international help...

    Pfft, French, English, and either way it's still Russian! But anyway, I actually remember the Kursk as being probably the most tragic loss of life that was all over the news back in 2000. It was awful...

    Anyway, there seems to be some good news, even though they haven't been able to lift it yet, the sub has been towed to shallower waters, where the unmanned craft thing has a better chance at getting it to the surface.

    That's why he invaded Iraq and blew up Afgahnistan, to prevent terrorists from blowing America up.

    Actually, I need to correct myself. Britian saved the people on board because they were closer. But we had two (I forget the name of it) on it's way. Either way, we were still going, and Bush is still a monster.

    What does Bush have to do with half the stuff he gets blamed for? I don't know.
