|2.||under the weather|
During the days when ships were powered by sail, the captains log documented everything that happended during the day. As sickness could spread rapidly on a ship,there were often times where the number of sailers that were ill exceeded the space provided in the log to record their names. During these times, the excess names of the sick were recorded in the next column, which was reserved for the weather conditions of the day. Thus, it was not unusal for an ill sailor to be listed "under the weather".
Don't get too close to Ahab, he is under the weather today.
Probably the greatest band to come out during 2010-2011. Their sound can be described as dark electronic pop/rock. Their best (and most popular) song to date is "Sail", which was released in February of 2011 as a single and in March of 2011 on the album Megalithic Symphony. The song consists of a haunting beat and many nonsensical lyrics--among them "Blame it on my ADD, baby"-which is coincidentally everyone's favorite Facebook status update during the past month. Other songs include "Guilty Filthy Soul", "It's Not Your Fault", and "Burn It Down." Awolnation is the solo project of former Under the Influence of Giants and Hometown Hero lead vocalist Aaron Bruno.
Ashley: "Hey, have you heard the song 'Sail' by Awolnation?"
Shelby: "Oh yeah, I love that song! Aaron Bruno's voice is the sex."
Hayley: "Wow I thought that Marilyn Manson sang that song. Silly me."
When I went to the doctor complaining of ear pain, he said that I needed to stop listening to my music so loud...so I got right in his face and yelled "SAIL!"

" thank you commodore for getting us ready to make way! we would have had a hard time getting it done all by ourselves!"
"..what a man can do and what a man can't do so i ask you.. can you sail under the command of a pirate.. . becuase i can't sail this ship to tortuga all by my onesome savvy?"
A medeival naval punishment that involves tying a line to each arm of the convicted sailor and pushing him off the bow of the ship under sail. The sailor was 'hauled' along the barnacle encrusted 'keel' of the vessel aided by the movement of the ship and pulled back aboard at the stern of the ship. It hurt really bad.
"The punishment for stealing rations is keelhauling!"
Ex-Commander of the Soviet Submarine K-19. Polenin is under great pressure from the Russian leadership to not only launch on time, but to have the new flagship of the fleet ready for a successful missile test firing to get the attention of the U.S. government. The fact that some systems in the K-19 seem to be faulty and fail on a regular basis is of no concern for the government, and they believe that Captain Polenin has put the safety of his crew over the interests of the Communist Party. Russia, by thus, decides that Capt. Polenin is not fit to command the ship. Since Polenin knows the ship and crew well, he is assigned to stay aboard the K-19 as an executive officer under the command of Captain. Alexi Vostrikov
See Captain Vostrikov
Captain Polenin: "At every stage of this disaster which came within moments of being a far greater disaster, the officers and crew did what had to be done. 7 are now dead. And nobody knows how many more are dying or how fast. These are the men who returned home to be interrogated as if a crime had been commited. Questioned, even when undergoing treatment for radiation poisoning. Locked up and denied access to wives and families. But they and their comrades saved K-19. And maybe, just maybe, they saved all of you as well."
Soviet Brass: "Thank you Capt. Polenian"
Captain Polenin: "One thing more, please."
Soviet Brass: "Thank you-"
Captain Polenin: "No Captain, in the Soviet Navy has ever been faced with such decisions. The fate of the boat, the crew... the fate of the world. All in the balance. (sighs) The Navy is my life, and one thing I know: there can be only one captain of a ship. The burden of command is on his shoulders, and his alone. None of you. None of you has the right to judge Capt. Vostrikov. You weren't there... I was. He was our captain, he was my captain. (Looks over at Captain Vostrikov and stands at attention) And it would be an honor, to sail under his command again."
This is a district under the government of a prefect (or prefecture) in Greece. It's made up of a number of islands in the Aegean Sea.
According to Greek mythology, the god of the islands was called 'Lesbos.'
An ancient poet called Sappho wrote about love between women about 2700 years ago and that's where we get the term 'lesbian' from.
Apparently, Sappho's poetry was pretty hot stuff and the Christians didn't like it. Little of it remains today thanks to a policy of it being destroyed by those against it.
Greek 1: "Behold! Across the Aegean sail the lovers Clitus Enormos and Vulva Maximus from the islands of Lesbos!"
Greek 2: "I'm hard as a temple pillar already!"
