I got about half way (at least if the page doesn't auto scroll and just add more!) - interestingly enough they were still (mostly) managing to stay on topic!

Armor a foot and a half thick! Giant coal and oil burning steam engines creating 150,000 horsepower and belching out enormous clouds of smoke! 60,000 ton craft at 30 knot speeds!

 

The Dreadnaughts sound like the War Elephants of their time.

Wow, I've never actually looked at battleships in this light before. I mean, when put into context, there really isn't a use for BBs because a stray torp could just ruin the whole thing. In reality they just seem like giant floating monuments to a nations manufacturing prowess... and a costly one at that...
