    It's also sung in kind of bad phonetic English, which is part of what confused me

    Yep, Italians singing english with a strong accent sound very similar to Japanese singers doing it. At least to my american ear.

    I love this song because it's italy going "this is what you sound like, idiots" and THEY'RE RIGHT

    I haven't played this yet because it doesn't like my phone but I can vouch for it being 100% AAA quality.

    Wait wait wait hold up

    what is this game

    Drift City! I included a video of gameplay earlier. Drift City Remastered is the new thing, but it looks like a City of Heroes style fan revival, so I didn't link to that.

    this song is a masterpiece, it's seriously impressively written/performed.

    I just realized that "giant container ship stuck in a canal" would make for a really neat CTF map. Team spawns on opposite banks, while the ship and the two bits of water on the sides form three "lanes." The water lanes are open for sniping while the ship is basically an extended version of MW's Shipment.

    I thought they just did. Maybe I remember someone mentioning they should plan to do it.

    They did an expansion just a few years ago, but they just keep making bigger ships.

    I thought Reverse-Moses was when you were having sex with the sea and you let it part you.

    The fact that capitalism destroys the solution to this issue is part of what makes it so funny

    Okay let's make the canal bigger so ships don't get stuck

    What's that the canal is bigger? Okay so we can fit a bigger ship in there now whooooooops

    Um, looks like the boat is stuck in the canal again, but in a different way.

    So... remind me, but Egyptian officials allowed the ship into the canal and official Egyptian canal pilots were steering it, right?

    I don't think so? I'm not 100% sure on how it works, but the captain of the vessel is the captain of the vessel and that responsibility doesn't go away until they are relieved by another captain. The pilot might be steering, or might be there saying 'go to port, there's an uncharted bar here' and suchlike.
    Again, woefully ignorant and probably shouldn't be speaking up, but I am fairly certain the captain is responsible for everything that happens while they are captain.

    Not sure, maybe, but this sounds like negotiating a ransom for the ship so I don't know if "who was really responsible" comes into it

    They could give a good chunk of that to the ship captain who was falsely blamed and attacked on the internet because, surprise, a woman.

    Poor canal is getting backed up more frequently these days. I wonder if it's dehydrated.

    I mean, "give us money" is at least smarter than "boat too big!"
