"It hit an iceberg and it sank. Get over it"

Post by Skepchick » Tue Dec 06, 2005 3:57 pm

Hee...I love science

http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/science/12 ... index.html

The discovery of two large pieces of the Titanic's hull on the ocean floor indicates the fabled luxury liner sank faster than previously thought, researchers said Monday.
.....

Explorer Robert Ballard found the bulk of the wreck in 1985, at a depth of 13,000 feet and about 380 miles southeast of Newfoundland. Ballard was not impressed with the expedition's find.

"They found a fragment, big deal," Ballard said. "Am I surprised? No. When you go down there, there's stuff all over the place. It hit an iceberg and it sank. Get over it."

There have been programs as to;

1. Why the twin towers collapsed on 9/11

and

2. Who was responsible


I think the answers are;

1. Because they were hit by airliners

and

2. The persons flying the planes at the time they hit.

The CIA sank it.

Scratch that. No CIA then.

The illuminati did it. There was no iceburg.

The "iceburg" was a ship which rammed the Titanic to kill off the people who would have prevented WWI.

It was a plot perpetrated on a molecular level: "Who's stronger, Ice or Steel?"

Ice won.

Problem is, it goes so well with Single Malt.

I am a convert to non-melting 'ice' cubes. The plastic ones you put in the freezer and then can put in people's drinks to cool them without diluting the drink.

Although in the case of your single malt there may be reasons for not wanting to cool it at all.

Single Malts should not be drunk cold, but at room temperature.

Shouldn't be surprised, Americans are not accustomed to "getting over" things. Take the JFK Jr. plane crash. After "burying" himself and his party at sea, in a VERY expensive "coffin" I might add, it was deemed necessary to locate, recover, and then rebury the bodies at sea. Go figure... ;^]
