Down periscope

This weekend I did something very few people get to do, thanks for Christina and Andy Warner. I got to tour a NAVY SUBMARINE! It was mind-blowing. I had no idea what to expect or how much I'd learn, but the process and engineering of a sub is very intriguing. (Nerd alert!)

Everything from driving without any windows, air circulation when under sea for months at a time (umm, they have to make oxygen by breaking down CO2 through a complicated process, so weird), missile storage, storing enough food to feed hundreds of men (mind you, perishables like milk and fruit are gone after a couple weeks) and so much more! If you ever have the opportunity, take it because it's pretty rad.
