- Pst... It's Long Beach .
- Aaaah, crap. Good catch.
- I was gonna ask if they served Ice Teas on board. Rather guilty pleasure.
- I really love this photo, down to the massive SCANFAR radars on Big E and Long Beach .
- big boxy bridges big beautiful boxes
- Seriously. I absolutely love how boxy the Long Beach is. So Unique!
- The volvos of warships
- No replenishment? What, did they just stack the hangar bay full with food?
- It seems they simply stuffed their foodstores with as much as they possibly could. Which in a ship the size of the Enterprise means a hell of a lot of food.
- I imagine the Enterprise had several shitloads of nonperishable food crammed into any extra space, which would then be delivered to the other ships throughout the voyage, since moving supplies around inside a task force wouldn't technically qualify as "replenishment."
- Many shitloads indeed. If my math is correct I think they would have had three and a half shitloads total.
- Which I think converts to one boatload, yes?
- Which also equals one half metric fackton
- That's facktonne. fackton is imperial.
- I dont think in boat loads. Can you break that down into something ordinary like Buttloads for me?
- Well, assuming the Enterprise-boatload (EBL) is a half-cylnder, she has an a length of 1,123 ft and a beam of 132.8 feet. This gives her an internal volume of 31,093,925.9 cubic feet. This is 880481.9 cubic meters. The large intestine is about 5 feet (1.5 meters) long and about 2.5 inches (6-7cm) wide, giving a rough internal volume 1.05 cubic feet (.03 cubic meters). So, going by these numbers (which I will not swear by, as they're napkin math) and subtracting, let's say, 40% of the Enterprise's internal volume for the sake of structures, you get 17.61sh million buttloads equal to one EBL, or roughly the population of Kazakhstan. How to get that much food into a bunch of Kazakhs from the wrong end is left as an exercise for the reader. EDIT: I got the math wrong on this one, guys. Please check /u/ZacQuicksilver 's comment and my response to him below for more accurate information.
- I dont think in Kazakhs. Can you translate that into Azerbaijanis for me? (Also good comment. Funny. I uprooted you twice!) Read more comments
