Wow.

Rear Adm. Matthew Klunder is still pissed I buzzed his tower at Mach 2 in my SR-71 Blackbird. He spilled coffee all over himself.

So he built a gun to shoot at me if I did that again.

I wonder if he knows I'm now flying the X-43A scramjet.

Perhaps I should buzz his tower just shy of Mach 10 to let him know.

Oh great, the Japanese can use this technology on their whaling ships.

Harpoons are so 19th century.
