At random: USS TRITON, the only American made twin reactor submarine ever built, on May 10, 1960, completed the first totally submerged non-trivial circumnavigation of the world when she followed the route of Ferdinand Magellan for 36,000 miles during 84 days beneath the surface.

Getting my arse kicked from pillar to post on HMAS Stalwart (a Destroyer Tender) as the Electrical Department disciplinary problem when the Electrical Officer called me to his cabin and gave me a choice of Submarines or being buried in the hole I was digging for myself.

Needless to say 14 years in Submarines later and now 18 years of maintaining Submarines in civilian life probably means I made the right choice.
