'Damned Those Torpedoes'

I heard a story once of how a company developed a new "torpedo!”  It ran off very high temperature and pressured nitrogen!!  The problem with getting it to work was the sealing!!!

Finally, they found an O-ring that could handle the temperature and pressure! So they put it in and brought it to the ship to test!!  It was a very short test because it did not work.  Eventually, they found out why!!!

The high temperature, high pressure O-ring was also water soluble!  When they took it apart, it was all goo!! Torpedoes are used underwater, for those of you who didn't know!!!
