Thanks cheese for posting. I woke up around 0130 this morning and read about half of it then finish reading during day lite hours.
Very interesting

Ya it’s a weird deal. Most stories start off with a subject and you can usually figure out the result. This took me by surprise...this is reality TV in its most raw sense. More than reality TV, a person died in his effort to secure funding from an insurer.

Great article. Very well written. You really get a sense of how big these ships are and how dangerous this work is. This wasn't even the largest ship they rescued.
Clearly the Titan guys are well recruited.
I did read that Rich Habib, the director of this rescue died in a snowboarding accident in 2016.

Did not know that Tim...  [sad]  [sad]. I always find it interesting the extremes some people go to right the wrongs of others.

Here's something I stumbled on. A full sized Bugatti Chiron built from Legos and NO glue. This thing was made from 1 Million Legos & 2300 electric toy motors. It's capable of holding 2 people and traveling at 18 MPH.  [cool]

Sinkholes: When the Earth Opens Up

I think #12 from Japan is probably the most devastating while #3 from Guatemala is probably the creepiest.
