Will someone please explain to Captain Sharkbait the meaning of "We don't have control of the ship." Also, the "stern section is flooded" doesn't sound good.
Today's Full Strip
Further proof that Moy has only seen photos of water and ships and such, and passed that all off as too much to think about deeply.
Thanks to Sandi Ego for referencing the May "Vanity Fair" article that Moy is so obviously using to craft her dialogue.If Moy is planning further "ripped from the headlines" stories in order to make some moralistic Worthiverse point (i.e., Dawn being "tested" and redeemed), I can only beg of her that she NOT use the horrific events that occurred in Colorado this weekend.
I don't think heading for the rocks sounds like a good plan either.
if they have lost control of the ship how do they plan on turning it around ?????
The main switchboard is flooded, so they can't call 911...I know there is much confusion during a crisis like this, but as others have pointed out, how does one turn the ship completely around (not just partially?) when they don't have control of the ship.And isn't it comforting that the other crew members lie to the passengers about the situation? Really makes me want to take an Italian cruise some day.
Oh. Boy. This is getting too icky to even make fun of.
This comic strip is on the rocks. Moy's career ought to be on the rocks.
According to Vanity Fair, the ship was sinking and it would be worse if it was in the open ocean rather than grounded on rocks near the coast. "...it seems like he could still steer," says John Konrad, a veteran American captain and nautical analyst. "It looks like he was able to steer into the hairpin turn, and wind and current did the rest." Now to figure out from the article just where Wilbur and Dawn will fit in... lifeboats, a desperate crawl through the capsized ship, swimming to the rocks, a helicopter rescue...
Yes, according to the Vanity Fair article, the captain did manage a hairpin turn, maybe using the small docking engines to help the wind and the current. And he still had his cell phone, but reported that they only had an "electrical problem". Really! Read the Vanity Fair article.
Funny, but I never pegged Wilbur as a Marvin Gaye fan.
An electrical problem? Purser marcel marceau needs to read more Popular Mechanics.I just finished a run of Anything Goes in NYC and nothing like this happens onstage.
