    Default The Titanic is Returning!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-17890754

    "Clive Palmer, one of Australia's richest men, has commissioned a Chinese state-owned company to build a 21st Century version of the Titanic.

    The mining billionaire told Australian media that construction would start at the end of next year.

    It would be ready to set sail in 2016.

    The plan, he added, was for the vessel to be as similar as possible to the original Titanic in design and specifications, but with modern technology."

    Who wants to go on that first fatal voyage? Anyone?

    "It is going to be designed so it won't sink,'' he added. ''But, of course, if you are superstitious like you are, you never know what could happen.''

    Hmmm... i wanted him to say it was "unsinkable" then, prehaps, i would be a little excited.

    I'd do it! Sounds like it would attract my kind of people! (Adventurers /high dopa/ fun people)
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Wow.. a boat designed not to sink. That's a technological leap forward in seacraft.

    On its maiden voyage it should be forced to run the same route and leave on the same day of the year.

    I want to know what modern tech they will be using, lasers to melt the icebergs before they do any damage?

    At least change the name (Titanic II). You don't make a sequel when the original was a bust.

    I always thought James Cameron would be the one to do this. After all, he acts like he owns Titanic 1.
