Another fun Costa Concordia fact: "Others, blocked or delayed in getting into lifeboats, threw themselves into the water and swam toward the rocks at Point Gabbianara, 100 yards way" (Vanity Fair, May 2012).
It's like history repeating itself... well, maybe not history... more like current events.
Meanwhile, people continue to jump overboard in full business attire. Not jump, really. They actually prefer to dive because, as many faithful readers have pointed out, they have Olympic fever. Nothing adds to your degree of difficulty like diving head first into a murky ocean full of debris from a shipwreck.
