Yes, that's the idea :batman:


In space, people can only hear you until the exterior airlock door opens.

The ship that goes on the lake and rivers....so a canoe. I do NOT like the ocean.....but other bodies of water are fine....less chance of drowning.

Lakes can be pretty big (e.g. the Great Lakes ;) ) and even rivers can be pretty dangerous. I'm not sure if you heard about this but it certainly demonstrates the potential danger on rivers. (Of course, this was not a canoe...)


Yes, but it is the ocean I am afraid of catching on a rock while underwater...getting stuck, and drowning.

If on the high seas a naval vessel of His Majesty's Royal Navy, the HMS Prince of Wales. One of my relatives served as a marine on board her and survived the sinking so I probably could be my own great grandfather or something, without wishing to create a paradox of course.

If in space, a technical officer on board a cruiser or a dreadnought. Some poor technician has to keep all those holographic terminals running so some lonely ensign can play Minesweeper, as well as keeping the Artificial Intelligence from singing Daisy Bell.

There is no option for a rowboat or canoe with a couple friends. :P

Or a non-polluting sailboat... or...

One of those research subs that go down to the deepest part of the Ocean to study the deep sea creatures.

I'm pretty sure lakes and rivers can have rocks too...

most lakes dont have rip tides that swoosh you out in the deep sea...scarystuff my whole family and I almost died from a rip tide,
however lake superior has rip tides too and has drowned ships like crazy from wild storms that come out of nowhere with 40 ft waves.
Native americans from that region say that the lake has to eat.
