    You think they'll get Leonardo DiCaprio to star in this one too? D:

    So they build it in China rather than Belfast? Sure that works.

    So, so much facepalm :facepalm:facepalm

    Bah, Leonardo DiCaprio. I wonder if they manage to convince the iceberg to play its part this time as well.

    While it's probably kinda dickish, I would find it incredibly funny if the 'Titanic II' would sink on it's first journey, preferably crasing into an iceberg.

    I am sure technology will defeat nature this time. What's the worst that can happen?

    Studies have shown that nature is a vindictive bitch.

    You should have also learned from Mortimer Lindquist that one should never say "Whats the worst that can happen?"

    Now no one will survive and in all likelihood Australia will sink with them. And its your fault, Palurien. You have killed the Australians. How are you going to sleep with that?

    More rich bastards with too much money to burn on their hands building shit that'll never turn a profit.

    I wonder how Rapture is coming along, has anyone seen any news about it lately?

    ...using the same route the Titanic took 100 years before in reverse direction (from New York City, USA to Southampton, England)... a giant tsunami that sends an iceberg crashing into the ship... The entire starboard side of the ship and the starboard lifeboat ramps are crushed...

    That alone is very annoying. Unless the iceberg somehow somersaulted over the fucking ship and somehow bitchslapped it backhand, that should say port side, no?

    Fuck, this shit bugged me when I read Drawing of the Three a few years back, too.

    While this is incredibly nit-picky, you are indeed correct, Jim. Starboard and Port are right and left, respectively. Yes, I did google it.

    Why are you bothered by Starboard and Port? Researching something for Cold Front, or perhaps a book further on in the series?

    It'll be called Cold Days, Harry hates boats except for the Water Beetle, and shut up.

    ... wait, wait, wait. Are you saying that they are things that are wrong... on the Internet?

    I refuse to believe it.

    The first thing I thought when I saw this was, "That's just asking for it."
