] But what really, truly gets me, gets me every time, is having ships sail with the wind, across the wind, darn near straight into the wind. . . and have the sails look exactly the same from every angle. Please! Hollywood does not revoke the laws of physics, if you please. (I won't even mention that the wind is fairer aloft, so sails should be set at different angles the higher they are on the mast--if they can't sail a proper tack, they certainly aren't going to get that subtlety right!)
.... in the words of the famous man from Star Trek,
'ye cannae change the laws of physics...'
That's how I'll picture you from now on, Ken ;-)
