This is an old video, but I was surfing YT and came accross this. Skip to 4:00 if you know nothing about how something like this happens. Navy guys, who fucked up and how big a fuck up is this?

I put new line on my fishing reel Saturday. First thing I did was tie it to the reel in case a fish took all of it.

At 5:47. a sailor girl chuckles.

Yeah, that's bad, mmmkay?

I'm not sure exactly what sort of system they use for those, but it's kind of obvious that the chief and LT allowed the guys turning the controls to let it out to the point that it was out of control.

At the end of the day it's not the end of the world, but the khakis involved are going to definitely get marks on their record. It's a simple command fuck up, and it would probably block the SWO's chances of an upcoming nuke or pilot school billet.

The navy is still just a bunch of retards yelling at each other in order to spin a big wheel and drop an anchor. 21st Century Fail.
