  1. Actual Radio Conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in late 1995:

    Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision.

    Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    Americans: This is the captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    Americans: This is the Aircraft Carrier US LINCOLN, the second largest ship in the United States Atlantic Fleet. We are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees north. I say again, that’s one-five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.
    Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
