"Nah nothing but depressing stuff and the signal out here is bad anyway on the waves, why?"
"...uh... well... come look"

"...ahaaaaaa hey who fancies a trip around africa?"

@kate *sees traffic ahead on the freeway* "oops turns out this _is_ my exit"

@BatElite @kate

You love to see it lol. Not sure how true it is, but I heard that they only dredge the 2/3 of the channel on the stern side, so the bow end might be even more entrenched than this plot shows

@kate i don't know a lot about algebra and trigonometry, but it looks like that's a sizeable wedge of dirt or earth or loam or whatever it's called.

maybe it's for the best, though. they ship enough stuff already. who needs more stuff?

@alrs yeah they suck ass but as far as I can tell there’s not a propaganda angle to “lol the boat is stuck”

@kate I like having a chance to get a dig in on Bellingcat when the stakes are low instead of making people wonder if I'm a sockpuppet of Putin himself. :)

@kate how fast where they going that they had so much momentum tu burry themself so deep

@kate I don't get why they don't just nuke it away. 💥

🤪

@ButterflyOfFire @im @kate Why don’t they start by bringing a crane to remove all the containers and goods from the ship. Maybe it could increase the chance of making it more afloat and plan things upfront.
