    Clive Palmer unveiled blueprints for the famously doomed ship's namesake Tuesday at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. He said construction is scheduled to start soon in China.

    Palmer said 40,000 people have expressed interest in tickets for the maiden voyage, taking the original course from Southampton, England, to New York. He said people are inspired by his quest to replicate one of the most famous vessels in history..........more at link.....

    Global warming...watch out for more icebergs. lol

    If he can build the ship to match the original as much as possible I can see many people taking the cruise. Question: Will the movie 'Titanic' be shown?

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    Hmmm, I don't think I would tempt fate. I may be wrong, but haven't most boats after the original, that were named the Titanic, had bad things happen to them? I am not a fan of cruises anyway .

    Oh, why?
    I keep wishing one of these billionaires would launch a free missing persons television network, available in all homes.
    Just my opinion, of course.
