Looks like I'm a bit overbalanced.
Very cool. I did some research on these cryogenic LNG ships, and they actually don't use refrigeration to keep the LNG below its boiling point. They simply fill the insulated chambers, and it slowly boils the entire voyage. They lose 2-6% on a 20 day voyage, depending on several factors, including roughness of seas, outside temperature, insulation quality, etc. I think most of the losses are used to power the ships engines. There is so much natural gas in our country that this is a vital technology, as it allows for exporting of the gas to countries other than Canada and Mexico.
We had a couple loaders do the opposite loading boxes of books on a 28' pup. When they put that one trailer on the door, they were supposed to use the tractor that would be used to pull the load, and leave it hooked up. We had a new guy in the yard and he got the move to put the "Book Trailer" on the door, so he used his yard shifter, put the trailer on the door, and pulled off. An hour of so later the loaders were stacking walls of books in the nose, and the trailer pivoted on the landing gear and flipped up on the nose.
Is that a Baby Ruth in his mouth?
