    I figured everyone who lived through the '80s would remember that song.

    I grew up with MTV since their day 1.
    I cannot ever remember that song. Doesn't mean I didn't see it.

    What do you think they do in harbor?



    Seriously, I hope no one goes out in that storm, but I’m sure someone already is.

    I wonder what was in the containers that went swimming? Will they make it to the shelves a little salty?

    nasty shit in the containers


    As the fire intensified Saturday, the Canadian Coast Guard clashed with the ship’s captain over how to proceed.

    “You have been advised to evacuate the entire vessel,” a coast guard official told the captain over marine-band radio. “All crew members and captain included. Over.”

    “Negative, sir,” the captain replied. “I will evacuate only a few crew members now, OK, and I will leave a standby crew aboard. I want to evacuate crew that I don’t need because we expect tugs to come to our vessel to proceed and continue the firefighting.”

    “We know that,” the official replied. “Tugs will be proceeding, but this is all arranged, and the advice is that you abandon, completely abandon, including all crew and captain.”

    Instead, five members of the 21-person crew remained on board to fight the fire, though they and three firefighting tugs had to avoid spraying water directly on the burning containers.

    "Due to the nature of chemicals onboard the container ship, applying water directly to the fire is not an option,” the Canadian Coast Guard said on social media.

    Two of the burning containers were carrying a total of 57 tons of a hazardous material called potassium amyl xanthate. The substance is used in large volumes in mining, a $9 billion industry in British Columbia.

    "Contact of solid xanthate with moist air has resulted in ignition," according to chemical safety information from a Canadian chemical wholesaler.

    "Emits a flammable gas upon contact with water or water vapour. Can decompose at high temperatures forming toxic gases."

    When potassium amyl xanthate is heated or decomposes, it produces carbon disulfide, another hazardous, explosive substance.

    The firefighting strategy was to keep areas next to the fire cool but let the blazing containers burn themselves out.

    By Sunday afternoon, Canadian Coast Guard Commander JJ Brickett hailed the “heroic efforts” of the crew.
