    This is the actual radio conversation of a US naval ship with
    Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995.
    Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations,

    10-10-95

    CANADIANS: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to
    avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the
    north to avoid a collision.

    CANADIANS: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15
    degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: This is the captain of a US Navy ship. I say again,
    divert YOUR course.

    CANADIANS: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    AMERICANS: This is the Aircraft Carrier USS LINCOLN, the second
    largest ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet. We are
    accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous
    support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees
    north. I say again, that's one-five degrees north, or
    counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this
    ship.

    CANADIANS: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

    :D

    I posted this a long, long time ago. It was deleted when my posts were lost last year. Some believe this to be true, some believe it to be a joke. Naturally, the US Navy denies it. Regardless, it's funny as hell. [face_laugh]

    This is a fine example of Canadian arrogance. Defying the USS Lincoln! Why couldn't they move their lighthouse?

    Fairly well known Urban Myth I'm afraid.

    A real shame though, I wish it were true.
