Say, what’s your battleship doing in my back yard?

Okay, it’s anchored off Hampshire, the county next door, but it’s near enough. People are gathering on shore to gawp at it. The USS Gerald R. Ford. Wikipedia says it’s the largest warship ever built in terms of displacement, which I guess means there might be a different shaped boat that comes close.

It’s too big to anchor in Portsmouth, so it’s just hanging out there looking…big for a couple of days.

Ooo…Gerald Ford was a hottie back in the day. Who would’ve guessed?

Unrelated: today I learned bears don’t have collarbones and can squeeze themselves through tiny opening. Okay, not entirely true – they have free-floating collarbones, but they can sure squeeze themselves through tiny openings like big rats.

Here is a 500 pound bear squeezing hisself through a 14″ by 14″ crawlspace window.
