That’s a picture of a session in a Navy damage control trainer. If they’re lucky, that wasn’t the submarine DC trainer in New London during the winter. So not fun.

What’s behind them looks like a motor controller, probably for the pumps in the trainer.

The correct usages of these two phrases in their respective contexts might be

  • we take your thoughts and prayers seriously (meaningless as they are)
  • please send / thank you for sending your privacy and security

I don’t think it’s his own arm. If you look closely at the picture, there’s a little head down below.

the greatest (and only) “gift” of the age-of-trump is that suddenly people are starting to realize

OMG PEOPLE ARE LYING ALL THE TIME AND INSISTING ON “TRUTHS” JUST TO MAKE US FURTHER ACCEPT THE LIE

I mean it’s everywhere, virtually every single advertisement you’ve ever seen is a lie or exaggeration but we’ve tolerated and accepted it for years, decades, we’ve been trained to believe lies

hint: when there is no penalty for lying, people lie, all the time, about everything

Privacy is the leftovers after the shareholders get their legally mandated hunk of our data.

Yes please.

This one?

This is why punctuation is important.

When you see that phrase, read:
“We take your privacy and security. Seriously.”
