3:27 is about what it looked like on the carrier when we transited south of Australia. If you've ever been on a commercial or military vessel, everything is massively overbuilt for exactly this reason. The mounting bracket for a light switch could probably hold 500 pounds. It's amazing how much of a pounding those ships can take.

Times like that, I feel for the guys on the other boats in the carrier support group.

That would almost definitely make me forget about driving if it got on me. Good thing I'm not an Aussie.

I worked offshore for a little while. What a crappy lifestyle. Some of the service crew would have to commit to 9 months before getting time off.
There were enough days like in that video clip that I decided it wasn't for me so little over a year of it I never went back.

Meh, if it kills the other pests, I'm good with it. That's what spiders are good for. I've got a nice corpse-yard in one of my windows that I don't want to vacuum up in case I kill my spider-friend. We have a mutual agreement - you kill them and I'll leave you alone
