When the other kids don't want you on their team in gym class

*This is a work of nonfiction based on actual events I experienced firsthand; used with permission. I was always picked last in gym class. Well, not always. Almost always. Whenever my elementary school gym teacher said we'd be choosing teams for some awful sport I didn't want to play, such as dodgeball or crab soccer, I felt my stomach sink into my shoes. As someone who suffered from the perfect storm of childhood anxiety and constant bullying, hoping to be picked anything but last was nothing more than a dream most of the time.

Narco-Submarines: How Cartels Move Drugs Across The Sea!

When it comes to drug cartels, these massive criminal organizations/ drug-running terrorist organizations have very crafty ways of delivering narcotics around the globe. One of those methods is a literal submarine and semi-submersible vessel known as "narco-submarines". The subs are used to ferry narcotics across ocean waters by the cartel. They are helpful to these criminal groups to move drugs to top distributors like the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. These subs are made in-house by the cartels as handcrafted structures with ocean colors painted on the vehicles so they are difficult to detect when the semi-submersibles are rising to the surface. They contain diesel or electric engines to help the vehicles move through the ocean & these submarines are either self-propelled or move while carrying people in order to try & ensure the drugs get to their destinations.
