imagine being the first ship captain to go through the suez after it gets unblocked, and knowing that you have the power to do the single funniest thing that anyone has ever done. would you be able to resist that temptation?

@jacethechicken Dressing up as Austin Powers, instantly blocking the Suez after its opens and sending everyone a photo of you on the wheel trying to back the ship up

@jacethechicken (me, the captain of a 1400' cargo ship, as I wedge it in the canal and get it stuck) uh oh I done it agaaaaaaaain

@jacethechicken what i would do is pilot it carefully, but every so often jerk the wheel back and forth to freak everyone else in the room out. then, when i'm almost to the end of the canal, i'd fuck up, jerk it too far, and get it stuck again

@heartles @jacethechicken also because the recovery equipment would probably still be in position at the south end

@jacethechicken Problem is it's canal pilots at the helm going through the canal, usually to prevent this exact situation

@jacethechicken I cannot stop cackling at the mental image. Just going Leeroy Jenkins on 10% of world commerce

"The single funniest thing" i believe would be to block the canal immediately after it had been unblocked
