    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Eddie was one of the team that found iher and worked on the lifting, he invested a lot of his soul into it that project. My comment was about the way Eddie sounded as if he'd served on her, he may be old but I don't think he's 400 years old

    I understood your comment but did not know Eddie's relationship with Miss Mary. Eddie and the rest of the team have my admiration.
    Can I also add that Eddie has served time on her. Three years to be exact.
