I’ve never had the desire to take a cruise, mostly because I suspected I would be seasick, bloated from all the food, and locked in the tiny cabins.
That said, I never thought striking an iceberg would be an issue, but here we are.
A Norwegian Cruise Line ship on the way to an Alaskan glacier hit an iceberg over the weekend and is being turned around due to damage.
The ship, the Norwegian Sun, smacked into the minor iceberg, also known as a growler, on Saturday and was rerouted to Juneau for inspection.
Bunch of babies. Finish the cruise and hope the ship stays afloat.
“On June 25, 2022 while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, Norwegian Sun was engulfed by dense fog, limiting visibility and resulting in the ship making contact with a growler,” a Norwegian Cruise spokesperson told Cruise Hive.
“The ship remains fully operational and is currently on its way to Juneau, Alaska for assessment,” the spokesperson said Sunday.
“Fully operational.” Yeah, they said that about the Death Star before it was destroyed.
A high school boy who identifies as a girl went balls-out in the Alaskan girl’s track and field championships last week.
The results were pretty much what you would expect.
Haines senior Nattaphon Wangyot–who self-identifies as a girl–advanced to the state finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events. He won fifth place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200-meter. In both events, he competed against girls as young as ninth grade.
One of the girls Wangyot beat out for a slot at the state meet, Hutchison runner Emma Daniels, took issue with allowing a male athlete to compete in girls events.
“I’m glad that this person is comfortable with who they are and they’re able to be happy in who they are, but I don’t think it’s competitively completely 100-percent fair” (H/T – AOSHQ)
I am SO going to identify as a woman the next time I’m near the Eagles cheerleaders dressing room!
It’s interesting how everyone celebrates “equality” until it shoves its way into their safe spaces. Expect much more of this in the coming weeks and months; especially from kids whose success in boys-only sports is lacking.
