Otis Redding sang "(Sittin') On the Dock of the Bay." It's a very nice song, but the key lyric makes no sense to people with nautical knowledge.
- Nitpickers like me know that Otis was sitting on a pier, or maybe a wharf or a jetty or a quay.
- The actual dock is the space in the water next to whatever Otis was sitting on.
- Non-nitpickers are free to sit or stand on docks.
And, of course, Star Ships visit space docks.
Er...what's up, Doc?
