"HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A new, Spanish-designed submarine has a weighty problem: The vessel is more than 70 tons too heavy, and officials fear if it goes out to sea, it will not be able to surface."

Some things haven't changed in 200-plus years.... :)

Simple fix would be not to load any torpedoes

All due to a wrong decimal place. Math teachers everywhere can now answer the proverbial question, "When will I ever use math?"

And I thought I needed to lose some weight. Well, I still do.

...much more embarrassing like the cancelled German drone project. :bleh:

My advice: Don't make the sub's test run in the Channel. :sly:

Trials in the Dead Sea might work I think

The roads are horrible :happy: - don't recommend that drive at all...

Dead sea water density is 1.240Kg/L (regular Oceans are about 1.025Kg/L on the surface)
So it will give them (lets round it) about 200gms per litre of Submarine...
