    "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

        • Suez Canal update: Ever Given still stuck.

          CNBC reporting that it could now take weeks to free the ship, potentially starting to impact global prices by next month.

            This is the image that has been circulating about the ostensible "traffic jam" caused by the ship, but for all I know this is what ordinary traffic flow looks like:

            • I’m relieved to see our news sources are capable of reporting on something as important as Suez Canal traffic, while also reporting on alleged sexual predators like Cuomo and Watson. By chance, does the Suez Canal do more worldly business than that bridge in New York? ;-)

                Yeah - even when traffic is normal, all those same ships would be there. The key tell would be *velocity* data, not position. There and moving = normal. There and stopped = slight problem.

                If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                  220,000 tons * 13 knots = LOL. Imagine a train 220 miles long (or 110 miles if you can double stack the containers). That's how much cargo this bad boy holds.

                    Recalls to mind one of my favorite mind-blowing stats from CERN: at full energy, the beam of protons circulating inside the LHC (rest mass less than a billionth of a pound) has as much kinetic energy as a typical TGV train (France's 350 km/hr high speed rail).

                    • Did someone stop and think maybe the size of ships through the skinny canal has to be regulated? That ship is massive.

                        Why would you think it's not regulated?

                        Of course it is, and it's worked well for many tens of thousands of trips through the canal. Maybe this really was a 9-sigma event? Incredibly unlikely things happen all the time - every time there's a mega lottery winner, a billion-to-one shot just occurred. No way to know if this was a systemic failure or bad luck until the forensics are complete.

                          Cause it doesn't pass the eye test. Seems to me the globe is having a whole **** ton of 9-sigma events lately.

                              Sure is. And always has. With many trilllions of "events" each day, unlikley things are......likely....to happen. That does not prove that they were not, in fact, unlikely.

                                I was surprised to read only about 50 ships go through the canal a day.
