Please forgive me for intruding again with the skepticism that this forum taught us to apply to all events.simonshack wrote:No problem, Heiwa! I'll be there! I think we should charter a small boat to cross the short distance from Porto Santo Stefano to Giglio island. I can arrange that (but let's split the expenses, ok?) Nonho? Will you join us?Heiwa wrote: I'll drive. I am at Ventimiglia. Where are you? Milano, Bologna? I'll pick you up and we drive down together. Maybe Simon will join from Roma?
In this case the "Event" we were sold is that a ship ran aground, continued to traveled further on some sort of ludicrous circular journey (instead of stopping immediately to assess the damage), and then keeled over on its undamaged [fat chance] side so passengers could escape.
How can dropping an anchor on the undamaged side cause the entire boat to keel over? If that were possible, every ship would keel over whenever its anchor dropped.
How does seeing a broken boat in the water at Giglio with your own eyes indicate the Event happened? When a broken plane was tied to the side of the Hudson River for a while, it did not mean the Sullenberger plane-ditching Event we were sold actually occurred.
This is just too silly to be real. Coincidences my butt.
