Christmas gift ideas


The HMS Invincible, a British aircraft carrier, has been put up for auction online. It saw action in the Falklands and Persian Gulf. Do you know someone who could use one? Its a great stocking stuffer. By the way, the engines have been removed, but it is ready for tow from HM Naval Base Portsmouth.

On NPR I heard them joking about it.
"Would it be a problem if the shipping location was Waziristan, Cave number 6?"
"You could tell it was the Al-Qaeda aircraft carrier because it was being rowed."

I love the auction site. There is a "windproof combat smock" and combat boots for auction on the same page as the aircraft carrier.

Here's a story on the ship auction from Wired Geekdad blog
