In a submarine, even flushing the toilet is a complicated task. You're hundreds of feet underwater, with literal tons of pressure coming from every direction. One wrong move, and you'd endanger your whole crew just by trying to hide some poo.

在潜艇里面,冲马桶都是一项技术活。你在几百米深的水下,四面分方都是数吨重的压力。一个错误的举动是,你会因为要冲走便便而危及所有艇员。



And in 1945, that's exactly what happened to Nazi submarine captain Karl Adolf Schlitt. As captain, Schlitt had some special privileges, including the unofficial right to ignore every lesson that he'd ever been taught. After using the bathroom, Schlitt really didn't want to live with his shame, so he called in an engineer to help him flush. Together, they sank the U-1206.

Rising water from the improperly flushed toilet hit the batteries that powered the sub and began producing dangerous chlorine gas.

在1945年,纳粹艇长Karl Adolf Achlitt身上就真的发生了这种事。作为艇长,Schlitt拥有一些特权,包括把上课学到的知识都忘掉的非正式权力。上完厕所后,Schlitt不想让他的“羞耻物”留下来,于是他找来一名工程师帮他冲。他们齐心协力终于弄沉了U1206。
来自被错误冲刷的厕所里的水水位上升弄坏了给潜艇供能的电池,产生出危险的氯气。



In order to escape death by the darkest Mr. Bean episode imaginable, Schlitt ordered the doomed submarine to the surface. There, a British plane spotted them, and eventually every one of the crew members was captured.

That's some crazy Schlitt, huh?

为了能脱离这死境,Schlitt下令让潜艇上浮,就在那里,一架英国飞机发现了他们,把他们全部俘获。
有点疯狂,不是吗,Schlitt?
