U.S.S. ENTERPRISE SIZE COMPARISON
I stumbled upon this awesome comparison between the starship version of the U.S.S. Enterprise and the aircraft carrier-version commissioned by the U.S. Navy in 1961.  Both are models at 1/350-scale.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
These models were built by ModelChili, who built these models and then posted the pics on Imgur.  Phenomenal job on both ships!

And here’s another angle from Timothy Artus, who uploaded it to Pinterest.  The aircraft carrier in this photo is the real thing, not a model.  Wish I could say the same thing about the starship.
Tumblr media
For further comparison, the aircraft carrier has a complement of approximately 5,000 people.  Kirk’s Enterprise has a crew of 430.

Navy AU
After Ford and Stan finds Dipper having a collection of female romantic-fantasy novels, they became kinda scared their great nephew will lost a chance to be a proper manly hetero man, marrying a wealthy nice girl. So, after a long talk, they enlisted Dipper in navy, to let him build up confidence, enjoy adventure on the sea and have guys around to show him how to be a proper man.... well, unfortunately, they forgot how gay navy can be....
Meanwhile, enemies attack on many USA navy ships, looking like the war will happen between the USA and them. Luckily, the USA navy takes care of the treath and settles down peace again after months of almost-upcoming-war conflicts. With that, all country is celebrating. Bill (who is int he navy as well, hearing news while being in the city) is so freaking happy that he gives no attention and kisses the first pretty face he sees... well, once he opens his eyes he realizes it's another navy sailor guy (Dipper), so he is a little bit embarrassed and runs away.
However, after he gets home, being in his bed, he actually still can feel the kiss and kinda realizes that he fell in love with the guy, needing to see him again.
Unfortunately, he doesn't know the sailor's name or from where he is...but one day, Bill meets up with a crew from another navy ship, and here is the kiss guy, blushing right as he sees Bill who is shouting at him "Hey! Hey! It's me! The guy who kissed you in front of whole city!!"

“The heart of US fast battleships, the reduction gears! A man is shown deburring the edges of teeth with a file. They offered almost 10-1 reduction to allow the turbines to run at much higher and more efficient rpm. These are some of the most critical components of the powerplant and one of the things which allowed long ranges in US battleships."
Tumblr media Tumblr media
"While steaming with HMS Duke of York, USS North Carolina (BB-55) was found to burn 39% less fuel at the same speed while her hull required more power to achieve that speed than the British ship. Note that they are double helix which eliminates axial thrust while providing the quieter running and increased strength of helically cut gears.”
These reduction gears are most likely intended for USS Missouri (BB-63).

Former Navy Officer Tells Us The Truth About Those Strange Drones & Warns The American People
Former Navy officer tells us the truth about those strange drones & warns the American people. Today, we take a look at those mysterious drones.
A former Navy officer detailed that these advanced drones raise many questions, and said that even if they do belong to another country, that doesn't mean that the mystery is over. They carried on by saying that further research is needed in order to get to the bottom of what these unmanned mysterious vehicles are, and how they're able to achieve the things they do.
Thank you for watching!
Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!
