· Three arresting cables can stop a 28-ton aircraft going 150 miles per hour in less than 400 feet

Size

· Flight deck covers 4.5 acres

· 4 bronze propellers, each 21 feet across, weighing 66,200 pounds

· 2 rudders, each 29 by 22 feet and weighing 50 tons

· Carries enough food and supplies to operate for 90 days

· 18,150 meals served daily

· Distillation plants provide 400,000 gallons of fresh water from sea water daily, enough for 2000 homes

· Nearly 30,000 light fixtures and 1,325 miles of cable and wiring 1,400 telephones

· 14,000 pillowcases and 28,000 sheets

· Costs the Navy approximately $250,000 per day for pier side operation

USS BILL CLINTON

The USS William Jefferson Clinton (CVS1) set sail today from its home port of Vancouver, BC.

The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy, and is a standing legacy to President Bill Clinton "for his foresight in military budget cuts", and his conduct while president. The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots. It boasts an arsenal comprised of one (unarmed) F14 Tomcat or one (unarmed) F18 Hornet aircraft which although they cannot be launched or captured on t he 100 foot flight deck, form a very menacing presence.

As a standing order, there are no firearms allowed on board. The 20 person crew is completely diversified, including members of all races, creeds, sex, and sexual orientation. This crew, like the crew aboard the USS Jimmy Carter, is specially trained to avoid conflicts and appease any and all enemies of the United States at all costs.

An onboard Type One DNC Universal Translator can send out messages of apology in any language to anyone who may find America offensive. The number of apologies are limitless and though some may sound hollow and disingenuous, the Navy advises all apologies will sound very sincere.

The ship's purpose is not defined so much as a unit of national defense, but instead in times of conflict the USS C linton has orders to seek refuge in Canada. The ship may be positioned near the Democratic National Party Headquarters for photo-ops, and can be used extensively for social experimentation, and whatever other worthless jobs the ex-commander-in-chief and his wife can think of.

It is largely rumored that the ship will also be the set for the upcoming season of MTV's "The Real World."

The ship was renamed and commissioned USS William J Clinton when someone realized the USS Blowfish was already taken.

That was funny. Haha

On a side note there is another one of these massive Nimitz-class carriers being built The USS George H. W. Bush CVN-77. Smile

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...h_(CVN-77)

Its going to be the last of the Nimitz-class carriers.
