Something Sociopathic: The Subo Kayak

This surfaced at, where else?, The Borderline Sociopathic Navy For Boys which wisely observes,

Of course, a BB gun is no where near as dangerous as a kayak. This fellow no doubt built a submarine out of a kayak to make it safer. If you're going to end up upside-down with your legs in a knot in a sort of socket, you might as well be watertight. If someone buys you a kayak, keep an eye on that person. They mean you no good. Have any food they offer you tested. Check under your car when you leave their house. A person that purchases you a kayak is not to be trusted.
Did I mention that I have some supposedly "good friends" who have taken to urging me to get into some "healthly" kayaking for "your own good. It's really a lot of fun. You'll see."?

My brother, who is not fat, broke his leg while running last week. Exercise can be very bad for you. Anything more strenuous or more dangerous than walking should be avoided.

That is 1000 kinds of awesome!

Kayaking is something I miss terribly since getting the cancer. Water therapy is what my buddy the serious kayaker called. If you've got friends willing to haul you and the boat around, it's well worth it. Try a sit-on-top model, so you don't feel so trapped, too. I reckon up there in that Seattle, you'd need a wet-suit to stay warm, though. Maybe, never mind.

Well done to him. If the U.S. Mil-dustry Establishment tried to do this, it would have cost 90 billion to develop. This is how most truly great inventions came about in the early industrial age, of course-- folks, doing stuff with things.
