Special post: God Bless You, Internet.


 So this week I'm filling in on another vessel here in New York. This one has an older crew than I'm used to. For example, they have adult magazines in the communal head out off the galley. Up to date, too. 2013 editions, some of them.
      I guess it's easy to forget that not everyone needs 5gb/a month just for their newsfeeds, and another 5 to watch TV and 'other things.'
 More amazingly, did you know they still advertise phone sex numbers in the back of those magazines? At this point in my life, I'd happily pay someone $2 a minute to NOT talk to me about what they're doing.

 Most of all, in this day and age, I can't see anyone under 60 ever calling one of those numbers. As it is, internet porn wouldn't be half as popular as it is today without a mute button standing by ready to deliver the user from the talking distracting noise.




*Insert obligatory obese woman on phone picture* Oh nevermind, here's some more Brazilian girls to look at. If you talk to these ladies, at least you don't have to pay to listen. You wouldn't understand anyways... but if they go "ai ai ai dios meu" you're probably OK .
