    In 1789 HMS Bounty under the command of Lieutenant William Bligh sailed off on a voyage to Tahiti in the South Pacific to obtain breadfruit trees for transplanting in the Caribbean. After a long, difficult voyage, in which a passage of Cape Horn had to be abandoned, the ship finally reached its destination. Within a few months, the Bounty was loaded with breadfruit plants and fresh provisions. But the return voyage never materialized.

Making everything that much more surreal, the events have played out before well placed television cameras with continuous "real time" coverage of the revolution, and ongoing turmoil, and foreign nations around the world eagerly await or dread the end result.

    In 1988, a recently organized militant group issued its charter, which called upon Muslims to "raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine". The group, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, declared, "Allah is its goal, the Prophet is the model, the Qur'an its constitution, jihad its path, and death for the sake of Allah its most sublime belief."

    Det er måske den mest enestående sørejse i søfartens historie, som kaptajn William Bligh gennemførte, da han i 1789 efter mytteriet på hans skib H.M.S. Bounty sammen med 18 besætningsmedlemmer blev efterladt midt ude på Stillehavet i en åben båd. I I kamp med havet er det underlæge Thomas Ledward, der beretter, hvordan kaptajn Bligh førte Bountys lille, ubevæbnede og overlæssede barkasse 4000 miles fra Venskabsøerne til Timor.
