radio conversation between a US Navy ship and Canadian officials:
Canadians: Please divert your course 5 degrees south to avoid a collision.
Americans: Recommend you divert your course 5 degrees north to avoid a collision.
Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 5 degrees south to avoid a collision.
Americans: This is the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Lincoln, the second-largest ship in the United States Atlantic fleet!
We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous other support ships. I demand
that you change your course 5 degrees north, or measures will be taken to ensure the safety of this ship!
Canadians: This is a lighthouse.
