You're right I don't know if that USO could stop everything on that sub. maybe they were using scalar wave tech? if such a thing existed. The
jury's still out on that one for me. really out on that one.
But I still really really doubt that it would be possible. there is a lot going on, a lot of contingencies that USO would have to address to fully
shut down everything on that boat.
There was a show (think it got canceled) called UFO hunters. they did a special on USO, one segment focused on the channel islands off of los
angeles. they see USO a lot. One of the boats I regularly go out fishing on had their captain (a guy I've talked to before, usually about fishing)
Interviewed by the show for a few minutes, because he's seen USO's there off catalina, and claims that he has even seen one metered by his sonar
once or something. The other local captains sorta poke fun at him for it. but people do see USO's out there frequently. But...the military does
conduct a lot of testing on "stuff" out in those very same waters. usually a little more north of catalina. so the captain could have seen a human
invention not a non human machine.
The only sonarmen I get to drink beers with are the captains of various fishing boats that I go out on. they only talk about metering sandbass or
"hey everybody I see a bonita off the port bow get some squid on them lines!" The largest sea creature I've seen on sonar was a mako. maybe some
bluefin. By the way anybody here live in LA? I caught some bonita and blue fin out at the cortez bank two days ago. way more tuna than I can eat.
free fresh tuna if ya guys want. not the blue fin though I only caught one and it's mine.
I saw that same discovery channel show about the methane and how it can sink boats. It was alarming how fast they could sink. But the amount of gas
was almost impossible in volume to be realistic. although I believe it was the same program (there are a couple they've shown so I'm hoping it was
the same one you watched) where they showed an oil derek sinking in two minutes or so in the caspian maybe black sea from methane gas. they also had
some footage taken from divers in the caspian sea who found themselves suddenly in a methane eruption. lucky for them they were only in about 50 feet
of water, but the underwater camera footage looked like they were in a jacuzzi with the bubbles on. the best they could do until it was over was walk
along the bottom. It looked terrifying.
The ocean must really take it's toll on those boats, especially when they spend so much time deep down. I still wish that an occasional sub has some
strange markings on it from squid suckers or something. a mysterious prehistoric looking giant tooth stuck in it or something. But I guess
cookiecutter sharks are the only thing that attaches it's self to subs. maybe a pissed off marlin mark or something. just speculating.
I agree with you guys about mr. cousteau on company. they, like bob ballard must have been sworn to secrecy on a bunch of things. especially when
they visit the med.
plus I wonder what else fish wise (not govt. property wise) what they had seen or had gotten a glimpse of. he claims that he's seen white sharks up
to 34 feet long, and I doubt he would have confused a basking shark. So I believe him.
I know little about what those subs really do in the med. I've got plenty of ideas though especially during the cold war. I know the soviets put
out tons of SOSUS and captor mine like arrays at the gibralters and around the sicilian area. We had a lot of interest in what they were doing there
keeping tabs on them. That torpedo. Could it have been a soviet sub telling people to back off. Could it have been a failed scorpion like attack?
could it have been a captor mine like torpedo that they triggered even by accident. Must be terrifying to have a torpedo come out of nowhere. must
be like walking through the woods knowing that there is a sniper out there somewhere. I wouldn't be looking forward to going back either. I deal
with slimy reptiles of the hominid form in my career, glad I don't have to deal with torpedoes and military ordinance.
Any input on the "Bloop" that has a few threads here at ATS? Weird sea creature, maybe something techtonic, or maybe just active sonar pinging as
if it were a biological or techtonic sound. Not saying subs can actively ping sonar like that just speculating. what are your opinions of the
"Bloop" I'd post a link to the ATS thread but I still haven't even figured out how to quote let alone attach links.
