Titanic Sails Again? Will There Be a Second Voyage?

Yes you read that right, there will be a Titanic part deux. It seems Austrailan multi-millionare mining tycoon Clive Palmer feels that this marvelous ship should sail the seas again and I don't blame him. I myself have always been facinated with this massive ship and it's shortlived life. The story behind it and the story that brought it to its end down beneath the great Atlantic Ocean.

This time however Mr. Palmer doesn't want to follow in the footsteps of the doomed claims of the ship being "unsinkable". When asked if he could claim the ship just that, he replied: “Anything will sink if you put a hole in it. I think it would be very cavalier to say it. I think people in the past have done that and lived to regret it.”

Blueprints have revealed this second Titantic will almost be a replica of the first. The only changes are air conditioning, a hospital and a helipad. Palmer also claims the three passenger classes aboard ship will go as it did in 1912- no mingling. Replica clothing will also be provided for those who would like to "play dressup."

As for the photographer aboard ship, whomever her or he should be, I'm sure lot's of mula will be made at the bow of that ship just to capture a shot of the infamous "I'm King of the world!"

Well there ya go. I must confess, I'm excited. How about you?

  1. It will be interesting to watch, but you won't see my name on that list. Lightning can strike twice in the same place, don't tempt the Fates. And don't go near that melting icecap.

  2. Thanks for the drop by D.G. As for me I am willing to tempt the fates, but alas you will not see my name on the roster either... can't afford it :0)
