Imma get on this shit.
who would like to accompany me on the Titanic II i will save room for you on the door
Maybe I’m just crazy, but that sounds like a goddamned terrible idea.
wow this seems like asking for trouble
Remind me not to take a cruise on that ship.
erm…you guys do know the story of the Titanic…right?
OMG…uncertain how to feel.
This reminds me, check out my storify about the Titanic 100 year anniversary here.
lol @ ‘near replica’, I would hope so.
tempting fate and then there...giving fate a lap dance
And not be made of fucking Iron.
Do you suppose the “near replica” will have enough life boats this time?
