None of that makes any sense. Taking eggs from the middle just makes the package harder to balance. True neural and lawful good should be swapped.

Gigantic container ship manages to get itself stuck blocking the whole Suez Canal.

Hmm...how feasible would it be to dig a canal across all of Syria and Iraq to connect the Mediterranean with the Persian Gulf... (or maybe Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia)

I'm going to say that just technically it would be extraordinarly difficult, going a minimum of 800 miles through desert, with things like the Dead Sea basin and then mountains in the way. Could it be engineered? I'm 100% certain it could be engineered. Could it be economically feasible to construct? Ehhhh, probably, actually almost certainly not. Especially because there are at least 3 other ways to go that only cost varying amounts of time.

Politically? Oh hell no.

Not that any of this is feasible, but surely going from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Mediterranean would be ever so slightly less insane. 130 miles instead of 800, and in principle you could go entirely through Israel instead of multiple countries.

But the Saudis effectively control the entrance to the gulf, so, yeah.

Hey, the Grand Canal of China is over 1100 miles long. Of course, they didn't have to go through Syria, either.

Unloading and disassembling the entire cargo ship in-place would be far cheaper than a new canal.

Or course, if someone ever nuked the canal, alternatives would be an issue.

Wouldn't unloading it alone work? Ship gets lighter, rises up in the water, more maneuvering space?

Depends on how badly it's stuck. Definitely the first thing to try, though.

It might maneuver better if they turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then turn it back on.

They might also try a hammer. You can do great things with hammers.

If all else, call the last guy who got it to work.

Or get out and push.
