Until I started watching youtube videos I always thought dropping anchor was easy and simple. 

 

Edit: You beat me to the Village people by two mintues.

 

For anyone triggered  by 'cultural appropriation' I recommend you get a lobotomy to cure your insanity.

Here's a pretty good video about how that and finding everything offensive is stupid.

Unfortunately, I had that happen twice; 1 naval vessel, 1 merchant. You don't want to be anywhere near runaway anchor chain. I had one kid in the Navy, got his leg crushed from the anchor chain. The other time on the merchant vessel, I watched the end of the chain cut right through 8"  steel bulwark pipe. Nothing scarier than watching the Wildcat running out of control, & You can't set the brake.  Run back aft, Quick.

It isn't safe back aft either, mate. Ships tie up to piers far more often than they drop anchor and lines snap a lot more frequently than you get a runaway anchor. It's not as loud, but a synthetic line will mess some people up with a lot less warning.

When I was in the Navy, I went to a crypto school at Ft. Gordon, GA. While all the Army guys & gals were out running laps and doing calisthenics at Zero Dark Thirty, all us Squids were kicking back and having a second cup of coffee.

 

"Better" is a relative term.

And then look how big and unfit Navy personnel are.
