    This is not a YouTube video but a short report about Wünsdorf which is near Berlin, from the BBC.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-eu...8KOUaKVOUR1nnY

    I served in Berlin from 1975 to 1977 (I was guard Commander in Alexander Barracks on the day Elvis Presley died ) and I knew about Wünsdorf as did most soldiers I'm sure but I never knew about the scale of the place or the full scale of the Soviet forces in East Germany at the time (I remember being told that the Soviets had 11 armoured divisions with an hour of Berlin) whilst the British Berlin Infantry Brigade had around 3500 men and around 20 Chieftan tanks. The Americans and French probably had similar numbers.

    Of course, being 100 miles or so inside the Iron Curtain, the Soviets had kindly built a wall around us and across the middle of the city to keep us safe. I lived about a quarter of a mile from the Staarken checkpoint which was a civilian access to/from Hamburg. All forces personnel had to use Checkpoints Alpha and Bravo for travel to West Germany (Helmstedt and Marienborn) and of course Charlie for access to East Berlin.

    Berlin was a great posting and I thoroughly enjoyed it but if the Russians had got nasty. . .

    Half way through, the cop chased a different bike.
    The first wasn't Uber.

    YTC!

    Myself & my dive buddy were diving off Pidgeon Island in East New Britain Papua New Guinea. The two days previous we had been shark calling (rubbing a plastic bottle to create vibrations and sound that attract sharks) at around 30-40 metres looking for silver tip and grey reef sharks. We were pretty keen to see if we could get some bigger sharks and so decided to go deeper. I will point out that both of us are very experienced divers and fully knew the risks of diving so deep (and without the right kit too!). We descended fast down to around 57 metres, planning to spend no more than a couple of minutes there before continuing the rest of the dive as a deco dive. It was about 3 minutes into the dive when my buddy turned to see what he thinks was a big Silver Tip Reef shark (although there has been a lot of speculation as to what type of shark it was, maybe grey reef or possibly juvenile bull shark) charging in at him fast. He managed to roll over as the shark hit him and unbelievably he was unharmed. Apart from a severe headache (the shark actually hit him square in the head!) he was completely unscathed having not so much as a scratch on him. My buddy had said that when he saw the shark coming in at was going very fast but then slowed down just before hitting him, also it's mouth wasn't fully open and it made no attempt to bite. We think that what happened was that at that depth the shark would have been hunting and zoned in on the vibrations to go for a kill, upon realising we weren't food but a couple of idiot divers it turned round and went away.
