Submarine Quote and Mystery Part #1 of 2
QUOTE of the MONTH: The tin-can style submarines made famous in The Hunt for Red October just aren't aesthetically pleasing and designer Taizo Doi agrees. - Travis Hudson, Futuristic submarine concept takes a nod from the jellyfish .
All that remains is for designer Taizo Doi to build a submarine that resembles his 'aesthetically pleasing' jellyfish inspired design, get in it, and survive a dive as deep as depicted anywhere in Tom Clancy's movie.
At least another submarine builder, Duke Riley, seemed to appreciate fully that important little detail.
Speaking of Tom Clancy, prior to his filming The Hunt for Red October he was granted a brief ride on an SSN. Mounted in that sub's sonar room he noticed a roll of toilet paper for grease pencil erasures. He promised to include that detail in his film. True to his word, Clancy would.
MYSTERY QUESTION #1: On which SSN did Tom Clancy make that particular ride?
Tomorrow, the answer and Mystery Question #2.
