Titanic tours

Really, thatís what you want to spend $250,000 on, to get into what reportedly was a poorly designed craft and go into the cold dark depths to see an old ocean liner? Canít imagine the last days spent knowing you paid that much for a funeral at sea. I feel for their families and friends having to live through it.

Bob, it was, apparently an implosion which means they died instantly.

No boat, back in the suds.

Yeah, they saw the tapered tail cone, and the landing skid that was bolted to the bottom of the hull. Two pretty distinctive pieces of wreckage.

It happened faster that they could have realized what was happening.
