For what we are about to receive ...*

HMS Victory is a first rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. Started in 1759 and launched in 1765, it was Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. She is the oldest naval ship still in commission, and now sits in dry dock in Portsmouth, England, as a museum ship. Keep in mind this demonstration was done with less than a full charge.

BLAMMO! (Heheheheheh.)
* ... may the Lord make us truly thankful.

  1. Now that was impressive! The car alarm going off in the background was icing on the cake!

    Old warships are so neat. I don't know what it is about them. Check out this thread if you like artsy warships - - the HMS Victory is in there, I think, and there's plenty of wallpapers.

    I wonder if they make a kit type warship that you could finish yourself and live in. I would have to buy one and move the fam.
