In which only some manage to escape

Today, one one of the screens in the instrument room, several of us watched choppers taking off and landing on the vessel next to us.  We are using multiple vessels on this particular operation and one is always a few hundred yards off our beam.  We have a remotely operated camera trained on it and watched them leave.  Watching on a screen and listening to the comments of people around me, reminded me of watching some sort of old WWII escape movie.  Except at the end, I'm still stuck here.

The high point of my day has been a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich made with a stale bun.  Good times.
