This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland.
Canadians:  Please divert your course 15 degrees the South to avoid a collision.
Americans:  Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees the North to avoid a collision.
Canadians:  Negative.  You will have to 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, I  SAY AGAIN, THAT'S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO  ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
Canadians:  This is a lighthouse.  Your call.
