Believe it or not...this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a U.S. naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on October 10, 1995.

U.S. Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid collision.

CND Reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

U.S. Ship: This is the Captain of a U.S. Navy ship. I say again, divert your course.

CND Reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!

U.S. Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA,WE ARE A VERY LARGE WARSHIP OF THE U.S. NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!!

CND Reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.


Fact or fiction, you be the judge.

Pretty sure I've seen this on snopes.com or similar, with the versions dating back to WW2 or before. Still a funny post though :)
