Clinker is any industrial metal/rock waste typically formed by heat driven processes. (Smelting, welding, coal burn). An onomatopoeia (the sound it makes when you tap it). Basically all it’s good for too. Other examples of onomatopoeia: Ping-Pong, hiccup, splash

Narrowed down my choices to two, being a ET/FC (on a Sub) or Corpsman as a rate while at MEPS. Safe to say I went with the ladder. But a part of me wishes I chose being on sub for the stories I would be able to tel on deployment.

My guess for the pre boiler is that the heat differential is too great under pressure that if they introduced the heavy ema it would take too long to reach pressure/gas state given the size and space allotted to the equipment. Also, listening on the elliptical with my Raycon E55's and they really are great.

@SmarterEveryDay Completely understand that! I know several veterans myself from earlier times, who are greatly wise from their experiences. As an aside note, working in the Oil & Gas and maritime industries; I see a lot of very bright younger people as well. Complete respect and wish all our younger generation possessed this type of knowledge and experience. Our country would be so much better off!

From a laymen's point of view, his shipmates in the video seem a bit nervous or something else is going on. That is a nuclear submarine, there is a lot of high-tech there. Be careful what you release to our-adversaries.

I am a nuke so if I were around, you would hear me make depressing jokes and joke about the small amount of folds in people's brains... not that I have any folds :l

22:46 Who even uses such low quality ice in 2021? We are living in the future, good people, and in the future we can create crystal clear ice. There is NO reason whatsoever to use cloudy ice to cool a drink in 2021. Where did he even get an ice-machine that produces such low quality product? I mean: one, the ice is opaque (causing a reduced cooling-to-watering-down ratio) and two, the ice is some sort of sausage-shape instead of crisp cubes (causing a visually sub-par drink presentation). It is 2021, humans. We need to up our game! Crystal clear perfect cubes or bust. I hope I never again see cloudy ice-sausages illustrating “ice” in a KZhome-video. It should at least be marked as “viewer discretion advised”, or more reasonably “this has been identified as disturbing content - do you wish to proceed?”.

the oxygen has to be mixed with other inert nitrogen... pure oxygen is bad for ya... over time you can get cancers.... it has to be dilute to be safer... not to mention that pure oxygen is very flammable, and in a sub, there are things that can create sparks...

I wonder if you think a contact could be in the shadow zone - you could use some kind of very sensitive hydrogen detector to see hydrogen being released from a sub due to the electrolysis on board - or a sensitive CO2 sensor to see where there's more of that than there should be... but they're probably released in bursts so you could never get a constant position... or something... loving this series!!
