      Oh lord, what happened now? What walnut on here said something stupid?

      @SmarterEveryDay The XO said submariner correctly in this video. All along you've been saying it sub ma reen er when it is sub mare in ur. My brother was a submariner. Kind of an odd thing is that when you email someone on a submarine you get two notifications that your message didn't go through. It's because one email is sent in three formats, three copies in essence, one in HTML, one in rich text format and one in plain text format. Since they don't surface often they are constrained to a low frequency and also constrained for time so they won't receive HTML or RTF emails, just the plain text, hence the notices.

    Very interesting and informative. So great the Navy allowed you to travel with them a bit Dustin.

  • CrazySteve113

    I understand not directly filming the injured crewman out of respect for their privacy, but why would you not even mention the type of injury and what was done to treat it during that section of the video? To take time in a video to discuss the medical capabilities onboard the submarine, and then not talk about an actual medical emergency that happened while you were there, feels odd coming from a channel largely interested in knowledge and the truth. If the injury was something professionally or personally embarrassing and you're trying to protect the crewman from any backlash, why even bring up that it happened at all?

    And you can talk about a medical situation- while maintaining respect and confidentiality. I guess it could have been an odd ball thing- but it seems really sketchy to not say anything about it.

    I am seriously interested in how the bible ties into a science channel. The verse cited clearly is innocent and would appear to relate... but it is hard to understand how religion fits into science communication. It would be like randomly citing Seinfeld. It just is a non sequitur.

    Destin - I love your fascination with just about everything. Every time I visit your channel there is something new. My Dad was a submariner. I am a submariner. My youngest brother was a submariner and his son is an active duty submariner. I retired in 1995 as the Chief of the Boat on USS Phoenix SSN 702. Thanks so much for this series. Not many civilians get to do what you did and I am happy you are sharing your experience. Great Job! Love the series!

    16 minutes until you get to what the title says... Don't get me wrong, there were interesting things said in those 16 minutes, but when I clicked on the video I wanted to hear about what's said in the title, not what games they play or where is the aspirin

    I think all those detailed books about the inner working of a nuclear sub in the toilet was not a good idea. They should not be in a place where somebody could have some uninterrupted personal time with them. Im just saying, a lot of agencies around the world would pay millions for whats in those books.

    i have to be honest, only about 1% of that was about pooping on a sub. :/

    They never learn! The CO/XO head is in a "Rig for red" zone. We had an incident on our submarine where the head was rigged for red and it was impossible to read that white-on-red writing, so the XO ended up with a flapper (Opening that ball value while they were blowing sanitaries.)

    I was under the impression that the toilet flush out like a torpedo in the deep in peace time and only during war they use fancy stuff to avoid giving their position, but what is laughable, the Russian satellites know where all submarines are lurking anywhere is the oceans.

    That’s wild you’ve never had ice cream on waffles! In Australia waffles are pretty much exclusively served with ice cream, whipped cream, and maple syrup as a dessert. Only some places (I can personally only think of one) serve them any differently (ie with fried chicken etc)
