    How the fuck does a billion dollar Aegis destroyer collide with a merchie?

    The merchant ship was in the left lane with its blinker on for at least 10 miles. The Aegis went to pass using the middle lane and the merchie took a hard right. Probably tried to take the exit at the last minute. I've seen it a million times.

    More likely it was going in a straight line for the past thousand miles at about 20 miles an hour.

    The destroyer has two huge jet engines and can make maybe 40 miles an hour. And has about 25% of its cost in electronics.

    Ok, I wasn't there. But, still. How does something like that happen?

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Prayers are with the Sailors crew mates and families.
