Bunker Talk: Let’s Talk About All The Stories We Didn’t Report On This Week

After missing a couple weeks, it’s probably time we all get together for a little bunker talk. This is a weekend open discussion post for the best commenting crew on the net, in which we can chat about all the stuff that went on this week that we didn’t get to.

Or yet another submarine scare in Sweden:

Once again, this is an entirely open exercise, let’s chat!
