The Greatest Thing That Ever Floated

USS Enterprise (CV-6)

She is the best ship that ever was.

She single handedly won the real WitP.

If Grey Hunter lets her get sunk for any reason, I am going to unbookmark his thread.

Has the remarkable power to inspire shivvings, because if Grey Hunter lets her sink, he will be stabbed in the kidneys. Shortly thereafter, 90% of the thread will suffer similar kidney-shivvings.
