Its amazing what the Penn will do at times. Its incredibly bouyant it seems.
The Rampage too, just when you think there's a crack, it repairs the damage and sails on... normally into another iceberg.
Similarly to the Lesnar. Many said it was the unsinkable ship. Not even god could bring this bugger down. But we knew. The ship just wasn't built right. Not for these waters at least. Really, the ship had only been hyped to take attention off of the real unsinkable ship. The ship of the decade...
The Last Emperor had never sunk, and it was viewed as a godly ship because of it. You need not fear the ocean, for we are on the Fedor. Master of the shark tank. Wisely the intuitive took pictures while they were there, not all great things last forever.
Recently the boat i was on sank. The Shogun. Oh, the Shogun. Speedboat extraordinaire, Wave Runner of good virtue. Truly, the good ship if there ever was one.
Right now though, it seems the good boat is The Demolition Hammer. Titantic in proportion. Literally, devouring horses just to fuel itself.
Oh yes, I remember the Last Emperor all too well. It was one of my first ships in which I did 3 deployments. Its crew was one of the finest crews I have ever had the privilege of serving with on-board the Last Emperor. These men would go to great lengths for each other and there is no doubt in my mind each crew member would gladly sacrifice his life to save another.
The voyages on-board the Last Emperor was certainly no vacation cruise. We were bombarded with rogue waves, typhoons, tsunamis and attacks from many other ships. It is amazing a vessel of this stature have withstood the prowess of the seven seas and not to mention the constant bombardment of missiles from much bigger, more modern and stealthier ships. The Last Emperor is neither a war ship nor is it a ship built of armor. It is plain and simple - like that of an 18th century ship with oars and sails and armed with nothing more than a few cannons. Yet, through thick and thin, we have survived all the perilous voyages which nearly took the life of half our crew.
There were times I said my prayers and farewells while getting my raft ready for abandon-ship...Just when all hopes seemed lost, the Last Emperor manages to put up its sail to catch the wind in the nick of time and sail on to safety. Those were dangerous times on-board the Last Emperor, but if I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing.
Long live the Last Emperor. Your crew will always remember you as you are indeed - one of the finest vessels to have ever graced the seas.
