Giant ship rolls on by the tower

It's just another day working at Instructables/Squid Labs when a giant wooden ship rolls past the control tower.

Wow, do you have a telescope in the tower yet?

Actually, no. But, I was just wondering what to do with the one I've got sitting at home. I'll bring it in tomorrow.

Please don't tell me Mythbusters is going to light that on fire or doom it to some similar fate..... It looks like a beautiful ship :)

It's not on fire yet. However, for the past hour it's been stuck in a slight dip in the runway and required two massive trucks to pull it out. Also, I just added a picture taken from the tower as the ship passed below.
wait a minute...does myhtbusters reside near you guys? Or am i just over analyzing a joke?
the mythbusters do a lot of their muthbusting at the alameda (sp? too lazy to spell correctly) naval facility that the squids reside in...never know...you might see eric get blown up on an episode in the future.. eric...i thought you had just gone a little overboard with a new "land proa" design....hehe that would need a big ass kite
*To all of the squidlabs/instructables people* Have you guys seen the mythbusters yet?

While we haven't seen them doing anything on the base, Geo knows them personally, and they've been over to hang out.
