So the UK launched today a new “Type 45 Destroyer”, apparently “the most powerful, advanced and deadly warships in the world”.
Ok, cool. So the British are keeping with tradition in rolling out fancy warships. But what struck me as funny, or at least a little bit weird, was buried in the last paragraph:
Mess decks are replaced by individual cabins, each with
their own iPod charging points, CD player, internet access, five
channel recreational audio and larger berths.
War in the age of mass-luxury!
