Watch the water.

Trust the plan.

    Needs strong Dublin accent:

    C’mere bud, have you seen on the news.
    ‘Bout the boat that’s been blocking up Suez.
    The lad must have been blind
    And those queued up behind
    Are surely now blowin’ a fuse.

    Captain America’s solution: (1) unload all containers & confiscate contents in lieu of fine for obstruction, (2) blast empty cargo ship to smithereens with exocet missiles, (3) clean canal bed of metal debris with high energy magnetic collection device, (4) Kamala Harris makes White House statement: America can fix Middle East problems.

        As Professor Guy McPherson would say, “Nature Bats Last”. Also the name of his you-tube channel.
