    Well guess I can add the cruise money to the yacht fund. Both happen to be at 0 though.

    Just bring your favorite firearms in case of Somalian pirates.

    Alternatively you could bring a Russian along.

    This $#@! is so sad. 6 people dead? This is the 21st century, dont they have this stuff locked down? Like, emergency situations and life boats and stuff...? I mean, why are people dead and missing from a capsized cruise ship did we not learn anything from Leonardo Dicaprio?

    Yeah, and you can bet just about all those missing will be dead too and maybe never found (ie fish food). This just validates my sense of agoraphobia even more. I don't start to panic or anything....but I really hate being in large crowds or places that would be hard to escape from. And when I am, all I do is constantly check my surroundings and look for exits.

    Sad part is, if most of those people had just stayed calm and in their room they would have been fine and rescued rather than floating around in a life raft. Just goes to show you what kind of organizational skills the Italians have....most people said no one had any clue what was going on, had zero information as to where they were going, where they were gonna sleep etc etc...

    human beings are pretty stupid creatures....

    As soon as you put a large flock of these animals together in a confined space, it's pretty much everyone for themselves.

    Except for a select few, who actually tried to save people and stayed calm. Those guys are cool.

    Listen to this $#@!...

    As translated by Reuters, the entire conversation went as follows:
    Coast Guard: Hello.
    Captain: Good evening, chief.
    Coast Guard: Listen, this is De Falco from Livorno. Am I speaking with the captain?
    Captain: Good evening, Chief De Falco.
    Coast Guard: Tell me your name, please.
    Captain: I am Captain Schettino, chief.
    Coast Guard: Schettino?
    Captain: Yes.

    Coast Guard: Listen, Schettino. There are people trapped on board. Now, you go with your lifeboat. Under the bow of the ship, on the right side, there is a ladder. You climb on that ladder and go on board the ship. Go on board the ship and get back to me and tell me how many people are there. Is that clear. I am recording this conversation, Captain Schettino.
    (Captain tries to speak but Coast Guard can't hear him clearly. Voices in the Coast Guard room.)
    Coast Guard: Speak up! (captain tries to speak) Captain, put your hand over the microphone and speak in a louder voice!
    Captain: At this moment the ship is listing.
    Coast Guard: There are people who are coming down the ladder on the bow. Go back in the opposite direction, get back on the ship, and tell me how many people there are and what they have on board. Tell me if there are children, women and what type of help they need. And you tell me the number of each of these categories. Is that clear?
    Listen Schettino, perhaps you have saved yourself from the sea but I will make you look very bad. I will make you pay for this. Dammit, go back on board!
    (Noise can be heard in the background. Apparently other Coast Guard officers are shouting to each other in the same room about "the ship, the ship")
    Captain: Please ...
    Coast Guard: There is no 'please' about it. Get back on board. Assure me you are going back on board!
    Captain: I'm in a lifeboat, I am under here. I am not going anywhere. I am here.
    Coast Guard: What are you doing, captain?
    Captain: I am here to coordinate the rescue...
    Coast Guard (interrupting): What are you coordinating there! Get on board! Coordinate the rescue from on board! Are you refusing?
    Captain: No, I am not refusing.
    Coast Guard: Are you refusing to go aboard, captain? Tell me the reason why you are not going back on board.
    Captain: (inaudible)... there is a another lifeboat...
    Coast Guard (interrupting, yelling): You get back on board! That is an order! There is nothing else for you to consider. You have sounded the "Abandon Ship." Now I am giving the orders. Get back on board. Is that clear? Don't you hear me?
    Captain: I am going aboard.
    Coast Guard: Go! Call me immediately when you are on board. My rescue people are in front of the bow.
    Captain: Where is your rescue craft?
    Coast Guard: My rescue craft is at the bow. Go! There are already bodies, Schettino. Go!
    Captain: How many bodies are there?
    Coast Guard: I don't know! ... Christ, you should be the one telling me that!
    Captain: Do you realize that it is dark and we can't see anything?
    Coast Guard: So, what do you want to do, to go home, Schettino?! It's dark and you want to go home? Go to the bow of the ship where the ladder is and tell me what needs to be done, how many people there are, and what they need! Now!
    Captain: My second in command is here with me.
    Coast Guard: Then both of you go! Both of you! What is the name of your second in command?
    Captain: His name is Dmitri (static)"
    Coast Guard: What is the rest of his name? (static) You and your second in command get on board now! Is that clear?
    Captain: Look, chief, I want to go aboard but the other lifeboat here has stopped and is drifting. I have called ...
    Coast Guard (interrupting): You have been telling me this for an hour! Now, go aboard! Get on board, and tell me immediately how many people there are!
    Captain: OK, chief.
    Coast Guard: Go! Immediately!
