    Just learned something and my head did not explode. I was always told USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship in the world but that’s not correct. While she is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat, HMS Victory, the ship upon which Nelson was killed is still in commission but no longer afloat. Victory is some 40 years older than Constitution.
