i just wanted to find out if you guys had any interesting/funny stories about shit that has ever happened. Just random info, this is the best way to learn. I'll start. On Modern day Pirates (actual pirate, not file-sharers Years ago there was a 668(i) class American SSN coming heading south something like 15 miles off Vietnams coast when a small boat came out and proceeded to fire on them. It was at night and the sub was on the surface so it looked kind of like a fishing trolly. The pirates were using .50 cals and rifles and shit. The sub used a megaphone to yell across the water (in Vietnamese) "We are and American submarine, do you wish to engage?" The boat decide to calmly turn around and run back to port. ur turn:nodding:

My pirate story is very similar to yours vivanolaq:
On Modern day Quebecers (actual Quebecers, not file-sharers) Years ago there was a Victoria class Canadian SSK coming heading south something like 15 miles off the Quebec coast when a small boat came out and proceeded to throw beer bottles at them. It was at night and the sub was on the surface so it looked kind of like a fishing trolly. The Quebecers were using empty bottles of Don de Dieu and Molson X. The sub used a rolled-up piece of bristel board to yell across the water (in slurred French) "We are a Royal Canadian submarine, do you wish to drink with us?" The boat decide to calmly end its beer-throwing and prepare for one hell of a drinking party!
EDIT: I changed the Vietnamese to Colombians but figured a Canadian naval ship wouldn't go that far and replaced them with Quebecers.
