Going Down with the Ship

Going Down with the Ship

Going Down with the Ship.

This comes from 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge week # 116.

The sirens Rang out all over the ship.
"What the hell is going on?" The captain asked over yet another explosion.
"Sir, we seem to be having some problems," The engineer answered with a sheepish smile on his face.
"I'm getting that feeling, can you be a bit more specific?"
"Well sir, that is a problem, see the book does not mention anything like this."
"What book? What are you talking about?"
"The book, the one that I get all the ideas from."
"Show me this book," he pulled out an ancient looking magazine. The title barely legible, 'Popular Mechanics.'
