    Well...big whale vents spite, captain eats it as he explores the Atlantic abroad a whale named Piquant
    When the captain lik,e acts like moby dick and sticks a fork in Piquant.

    There's some stuff about whaling in general then Piquant comes back with the dick on his back and kicks the shit out of all of Moby Dick's friends who don't think so much of him as they once did.

    The whale sinks ship ship sinks with with all but one going all watery and gravey. Whale swims off into the sunset with that Moby Dick tied to his back!

    I take questions "O}

    So the "good" captain rides into the sunset roped to the white whale's back? Poetic justice would seem to have been served.

    B-b-but Slim Pickens played an all American "Atoms for Glory" kinda guy. Dr Strangelove is on my very best ever list of films. The ending is a tad sobering, but it's always something!

    Seems it's pretty well known that there was a white whale in Moby Dick. I thought so, anyway. Was I wrong AGAIN?

    Well, forgive my ignorance. So there was a white whale, but Moby Dick was the "good" captain?

    If I gotta get myself nuked, I want slim to do it. A real shame he's booked solid to play in the big round up.

    I don't know how far from guaranteed destruction you will be. Safe bet that I won't have to suffer, just an impossibly bright flash and I'll be vaporized. Can't say that I'm happy about it--but it's always something.

    It's said that when our nine point earthquake comes everyone to the west of I-5 is a goner. Does half a mile east of that freeway make me safe? Kinda doubt it.

    Well---we have all but killed all of the whales. Love those Japanese "scientific" quotas, as well as the Norwegians and Faeroese and the rest of the northern Europeans that just gotta kill, kill, kill. Indigenous people don't count, as far as I know they do it the old fashioned way. Like the happy crew members in Moby Dick.

    The Seattle to Combined Base Lewis McChord corridor will be gone. Not to mention Bremerton and that place where the submarines congregate. Dunno if the Chinese still relay on a few 50 mega-tonners or not. Maybe you needn't worry at all, perhaps you'll be among the chosen too. Isn't it nice to be special?

    Ya know...I could use one them myself! Any word on cost at delivery, I mean why dream if they are going to price me out!? I wonder if they would take food stamps as part of the down payment... I would want a lot spiffier paint job. and inflatable landing feet sounds a bit Donald Duckish, but beats bumping your head I guess.

    Should you gain control of one by any means miraculous e-mail me for my GPS co-ordinance,
    If you go by night there should be but only a few of them awake!

    Don't plan on being able to hide out locally, get out of town as soon as you take off before they can circulate your description!! I won't say more for fear of using up all the good ideas.... But a Deflated Airship would be harder to spot in the clouds!!

    GOOD LUCK DANROK!

    (Daniel waves from far far below...":O}

    When you get this close to a fantastic dream reality begins to take flight with the spirits of the air!

    Keep me posted Dan! ":O}
