  1. If I had a yacht like that I’d self isolate on it as well…

    Whether you believe he deserves such from his work (and who are we to judge how someone spends his money?) or not, his decision to spend his time away from places where he’s likely to get infected is a good one.

  2. I just keep thinking about John Ringo’s “Black Tide Rising” series.

    It didn’t turn out well for the rich people on yachts.

      1. Over in the comments at the Insty piece, I opined that Geffen probably had some guns handy on that giant yacht. Others insisted he couldn’t because most countries don’t allow ship crew to be armed (which is why African piracy still exists!).

        I stopped arguing, but look at the size of that thing. You want me to believe there aren’t any well-disguised cubbies, or that Geffen can’t afford to pay a couple of armed guards well enough they’ll lie to port authority? Pull the other one, it’s got bells on.

        1. For that matter, in many countries the port authorities are known to be reasonable for what amounts to pocket change for someone like Geffen.

  3. He’s just throwing out disinformation hoping that the snatch teams get their intel from IG and not military spy satellites.

  4. I have this mind picture: Wartime. The USS Wankerfish is cruising at periscope depth, a Clark Gable-like character is bent over the eyepiece. The image of the above gun-runner fills his scope.

    “fire one!”

    “Fire Two!”

    “God Bless America” begins to play as Deep Voice Narrator Guy begins to tell us how we’re winning the war against Asshat Liberals, one war bond at a time.

  5. Continuing MurphyAZ’s thought, anyone got a set of drawings for a Type 91 and access to, say, a Twin Otter? (Although a DHC-3 has the lift capability, is a bunch cheaper, and there’s probably only hand-held defensive armament on Geffen’s t̶a̶r̶g̶e̶t̶ boat, so the 91’s range should be enough.)
