  6. I imagine not a lot different then the guys who spend a lot of time on subs.
  7. They aren't paying those guys the whole time they are stuck there.
  8. Some of those are pretty funny
  9. Except a sub isnt 95 degrees and you can have a nintendo ds
  10. And flush toilets, hot showers, kitchens....
  11. subs might have those luxuries now... ever toured the u-505 in chicago?
  12. But Germans don't need toilets, and hot showers are purely organic for them.

    I've walked through an US WWII sub, man them were some tight quarters.
  13. The Nautilas in CT? That thing is small.
  14. Nope, but yeah that one is tiny too. That was post WWII though I think.
  15. Theres one in a park near here that you can tour through
    That thing is REALLY small on the inside, and had a crew of like 30 guys
  16. I was meaning more just getting used to being "outside" again, but yea, whatever on all those other technicalities.
