    Ever watch videos by the urban explorer group called "The Proper People"? They are mature, and make, well, "proper" videos exploring abandoned places world wide. Underground tunnels of mental institutions, malls, industrial sites, etc..

    Here they are camping atop of an old radar base.

    It's amazing it doesn't twist apart.

    It would be a deep subject, but I'd like to know about the joints/connections and how it can all flex and maintain its water-tightness.

    I wonder if it is airtight too.

    Quick lookup found this:

    Back when steel hulls were of riveted construction, leaks were commonplace as the hull flexed with physical and thermal stresses. Modern metal hulls are almost always steam welded (to prevent cell corrosion and flexural stresses on the weld) and the joints are typically lapped or doubled, so leakage through joints is minimal, but there will eventually be leakage through hull fittings (thrusters, shaft seals) and even, on large hulls, small cracks which are not a structural threat. So, it's generally taken for granted that all large hulls will leak, whether through seams, cracks, through-hull fittings, or at least, though the deck; hence, all boats have bilge pumps.

    Anybody think that technology today is somehow reading people's thoughts and causing others to post similarly on the internet? Because I have been thinking of something like the above car-mod lately.

    Or we could just learn how to parallel park. It’s really not that hard. ;)
