And Yet, No One Blames the Reef 

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Last week, an Italian cruise ship wrecked and ultimately sank after hitting a reef off the coast of Italy. At least eleven people perished in the disaster, but the captain didn’t go down with his ship. Instead, he wound up in a lifeboat, and then safely on shore. His excuse?

“…I tripped and I ended up in one of the boats. That’s how I found myself in the lifeboat.”

If you find the captain’s story hard to believe, you’re not alone. Even more unbelievable, however, is the ship’s choice of music.
