I couldn't find the source of this fine photo.

      This is a nice collection.

A long time ago in a galaxy far away I had a young ladyfriend who was pretty handy with needle and thread. 

She was given the remnants of a moth-eaten mink stole by her granny.  Knowing that I was off to do some cold-weather offshore racing, she constructed a "willy-warmer" - with mink on the inside. 

The other crew wondered why I had that permanent cheesy grin for the entire race.

In retrospect, I should've married that girl.

Hobot weird timing. That sub is the Blueback which is a museum piece in Portland. A good friend was a sonar tech on board for almost 4 years and we are going to take an on board tour with him early OCT (4th or the 5th if anyone is in town and wants to join - followed by a bunch of beer)...

I just forwarded him the picture and he was most grateful.

Not a bubblehead - but subs have movable bollards/ winches that can be taken off when about to submerge.  I think I remember that some are even powered, and can be raised or lowered from inside the boat. 

Actually the bollards/winches are on a rotating foundation which are rotated then fixed in place while under tow or at anchor. the winches are definitely powered, because you wouldn't be able to tie up if you didn't have the mooring capability of a winch.

A Liberty ship hits the water, and the first piece of steel is ready to be laid to start the next one.  We owe those people so, so much.

So many photographs whose provenance I wish to know!

You do know the right click "search Google for image" trick ?

I know how to do a google image search, yes, but that requires that I download the photo in question. No right click option.

Must be because I'm using Firefox.

The way I do it is to open a tab with the Google image search bar on it, then you can just drag the picture to that tab and drop it in the bar...

Hong Kong police. In this image they indiscriminately attacked people in the MTR. Photos from /r/Hongkong on reddit.
