    Too bad Schoenberg didn’t live longer, they could have invited him to play some of his music on that piano on the submarine.

    Why would you need a piano on a submarine??

    To scare off the crocodiles trying to mug the submarine.

    In my cab days, I had a semi-regular customer who lived in an apartment building… 1313 13th Avenue.
    Wonder if it had a 13th floor.

    Another waste of tax dollars on the piano. Just like the $10,000 toilet seat.

    The $10,000 toilet seat was more of a cover for the bank of toilets in a big troop transport plane. It locked down and sealed the entire bank of toilets so that even when undergoing evasive maneuvers the cover would remain locked and sealed.

    Speaking of the Thomas Edison, that was the boat my husband was on back in the early ’70’s. They had some very expensive sledge hammers made of a special bronze-like alloy that would not spark, but was strong enough to be used to bash sticking valves. Pipes and valves and hatches can do odd things when under a lot of pressure underwater, and when a nuclear power plant requires attention it requires it right now, and sometimes the only solution to breaking something loose is a good whack with a 5-pound sledge. And not having it spark is just a good idea when your plant may be leaking odd gases.

    Funny thing is, he was on that boat for three years, and never mentioned the piano to me.

    How do you get a Steinway piano into the submarine?

    I thought most buildings do not have a 13th floor, just for the reason of superstitious people. Haven’t been in too many multi-story buildings lately … all the ones around me are 4 floors or less.

    @Cooncat

    Any building over 12 floors will have a 13th floor … it just wouldn’t be numbered 13.

    Ask Captain Nimo, he had a pipe organ on his sub.

    You don’t. You build the submarine around it.
