The 32-foot, steel yacht, Ice Bird, returns under jury rig to Cape Town, South Africa, after Dr David Lewis, a remarkable New Zealand seaman and author, completed the first single-handed voyage to Antarctica in it, in 1972. Ice Bird was rolled in storms three times, lost its mast twice.

I never thought much of Lua growing up. I was acquainted with it through an embarrassing amount of Garry's Mod but I never really used it. I had to toy with it for awhile when I was modding Zomboid earlier this year and I'm surprised to see that Lua would return Java objects and even use Java functions directly. Spoke with some friends about it and one told me that Lua will adapt to whatever language it's helping abstract. Which I thought was really neat, so I looked into how integrating it.
