"Regards to everybody, no need to be desperate."

The last message written by Captain-lieutenant Dmitri Kolesnikov aboard the Russian submarine Kursk:

"It seems like there are no chances... Here's the list of personnel from the other sections, who are now in the ninth [compartment] and will attempt to get out. Regards to everybody, no need to be desperate. Kolesnikov."

Via Chicago Boyz. It reminded me of something I read over at Tim Worstall this morning.
