There is a joke of a German tank commander who was captured and was talking to a GI captor.

GI: So I heard a German tank could kill 5 American tanks for each German tank

German: No, a German tank could kill 10 American tanks for each German tank.

GI: So how did we capture you then.

German: the Americans always brought 11 tanks for 1 of ours.

Yeah, that was only half a joke. My father was a tanker in WWII, he had some stories. Obligatory quote:

"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers. But there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes, and all of this…all of this…was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars." - J. Michael Straczynski, Babylon 5

Yes - I was on the Eisenhower in the Indian Ocean and we stopped the ship for a day. The airdales created a hook out of metal, baited it, and promptly caught a large size shark.

Turned out that in addition to throwing the hook overboard, they had thrown all sorts of meat in the water to chum.

Unbeknownst to them, the reason we had stopped was to send divers over the side to clear out water intakes.

Needless to say, the divers were not all that excited to hear that people had been chumming for sharks while they were in the water!
