    the greatest comedic opportunity was getting the ship unstuck and then immediately re-sticking it, but this is a close second

    the eyes of the world are on you, ship crew. don't fuck this up

    from each according to his ability, to each according to his need

    I'd joke about wanting it to get stuck again because it was hilarious last time, but honestly so much of my online shopping got fucked because of it that I'd rather it not happen again lol

    Yeah like, I would laugh but I would also be crying a little because my job's supply chain is still kinda fucked up from the last time it got stuck.

    Would it be worth it?

    Only time will tell.

    Since this seems like a nice feelgood kind of thread about an event from earlier this year, I would like to take this moment to remind everyone that Donald Rumsfeld and Rush Limbaugh are still dead.

    We're already on 4 hours production Mon-Thurs and none on Friday for the whole month of August. Let's just knock that down to 0 production.

    Oh captain, my captain

    Why? Fucking why? The whole world knows that ship is too big for the canal, and has been watching it like a hawk! Why would you do this?!?!

    So unless I missed a step it has been basically impounded in a lake in the center of the canal this whole time so that Egypt (?) could extort / fine the owners. So it's not "going through" again, it's just finally actually leaving.

    If it makes it through cleanly I want there to be one person on the shore screaming 'BOOOOOOO' as it passes by.

    I thought it did that a month or two ago? I remember hearing it was moving / released.

    It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

    Edit: also had it only been 4 months? Christ this was a long ass 4 months.

    According to this Reuters article it left the canal and arrived in Rotterdam in late July. It then went to Felixstowe, England, earlier this month. It's now making the trip back through the canal on its way to Singapore.

    Fingers crossed!

    I mean I literally work in the importing industry and our shipments are currently delayed by like 4 months already but yeah, I'm real sorry about the paper towels you ordered.

    Did y'all know that there's a worldwide shipping container and fucking shipping pallet shortage right now? Containers are coming out of China, but there's nothing to put in them for the return journey and it's too expensive to send empty containers so they're just hanging out.

    What I'm saying is if you're planning on buying people gifts for the holidays this year do it now.

    There's an aluminum (for cans) shortage, leading to beverage companies to cut down number of brands, because stores stopped taking can/bottle returns during Covid.

    My mom already has one for storing firewood, so I think I'm good for now (she lives in Alaska in a log cabin with only a wood burning stove for heat so she needs a full container of wood for the winter)

    The problem with these big ships is that once they get the taste of land-blood in their mouth it’s hard to make them forget it
