    This is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation of a US
    naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of
    Newfoundland in October, 1995.

    Americans: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to
    avoid a collision.

    Canadians: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the
    South to avoid a collision.

    Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again,
    divert YOUR course.

    Canadians: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND
    LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE
    ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS
    SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES
    NORTH, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL
    BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

    Canadians: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

    Wow... I hear so many of these weird stories and 90% of the time... they involve Americans... (not trying to be racist or anything).
    Just wondering if there are any recorded stories involving other people. lol :p

  5. It's not racism... it's xenophobia.

    While this story might no be true, I would bet anything that something has happened in the past similar. Most urban legends and the such usually have a bit of truth to them.
