USS San Francisco

Posted by: on Jan 8, 2005 | 2 Comments

Had no idea we had a nuclear submarine named after our city, that is, until it ran aground today 350 miles off the coast of Guam. Charming.
And the USS San Francisco is a “Los Angeles-class” sub. Makes a lot of fucking sense to me.
Interesting bit of trivia about subs: last bastion of all-male personal in the military, cuz of the close quarters and all, and you can not wear deodorant of any kind as it interferes with the CO2 filters. I’m sure there’s a lovely bouquet once you pop the top on a recently surfaced sub. *shudder*
