    Even if that fucking thing doesn't sink (which, let's be honest, it probably won't), the cruise line industry is a fucking financial disaster. Unless Palmer is looking for a tax dodge (depending on Aussie tax law), I don't get why a smart businessman would go into it.

    I hope an iceberg hits it like a torpedo while it's still in the harbor.

    Not to mention the Oceanic and Britannic, which are both lying at the bottom of the ocean.

    He'll be fine. It's not like he said it was unsinkable.

    Undersized cruise ship. It'll never happen.

    I sense this thread sloping down into Asian jokes.

    I'd hate to see that happen. We should nip it in the bud.

    I don't see one, and if there was a new slant, I'd be the first to see it.

    This has to be some plan for evacuation of the super-rich, Illuminati, Elite and Bildebergers.
