Volume 12 Number 1
March 31, 1996
Blue Side Up
Speaking of Internet activity, this issue’s Blue Side Up comes to us via Kris Tague, TIGHAR #0905CE of Foster City, California. It was posted on the Internet for general jollies. Since it appears to be a U.S. Government “document” we thought we could risk sharing it without infringing any copyrights.
Actual radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations, October 10, 1995.

Voice #1:

Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

Voice #2:

Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to South to avoid a collision.

Voice #1:

This is the Captain of a U.S. Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

Voice #2:

No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

Voice #1:

This is the aircraft carrier Enterprise. We are a large warship of the U.S. Navy! Divert your course NOW!

Voice #2:

This is a lighthouse. Your call.
