  Here's something I picked of the net. LOL, its quite a good one.

The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation in October
1995, between a US Navy ship off the coast of England, and some British
maritime authority. The transcript was released by the Ministry of Defense
(MoD) on 10/10/95.

British voice: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to Avoid
collision

American voice: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North, to
avoid a collision

British voice: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to
the South to avoid a collision.

American voice: This is the Captain of US Navy ship. I say again, Divert
YOUR course.

British voice: Negative. I say again. You will have to divert your course.

American voice: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE SECOND LARGEST
SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE
DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS, AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. WE DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH.THAT'S 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

British voice: We are a LIGHTHOUSE you moron. And just fuck off if you Want
to save your ass!!


God Save the Americans. Ahem!!

  If I've said it once, I've said it a million times; lighthouses need to built on wheels. Stupid Brits

If the technology wasn't there I wouldn't be too surprised for it to happen.

oh, I got a good laugh out of it, as a former navy man, I can tell that these types of exchanges occur quite often.
