EMERGENCY SAFETY TIPS FROM CAPTAIN FRANCESO SCHETTINO

If-a you evah at a Furr's Cafeteria in-a Florida when they issue-a hurricane warning, and-a you automobile won't-a start, here's-a what you do.

You find-a the weakest, most-a frail old lady a-sitting in-a powered wheelchair, and-a you throw her on-a the floor, then you steal-a the wheelchair. Now-a remembre, it's-a most important to find-a the weakest, frailest one, because-a they are-a the least likely to-a maybe hurt you. You might-a want to kick-a her in the hip-a few times until it-a breaks to make-a sure she don't-a come after you.

After you steal-a the wheelchair, you drive it to-a the parking lot, and-a you use-a the battery from it to start-a you car. After you start-a the car, you take-a the battery from-a the wheelchair, and-a you put it in-a you trunk. You do this-a for two reasons: Uno- you might-a need the battery again to start-a you car, and Due- the old-a lady with-a the broken hip, she can't-a chase after you.

Buona fortuna!!!

Does anyone else picture this:

images2.fanpop.com

When they think of the captain?

Captain Zapp Brannigan: Don't blame yourself, Kif. We were doomed from the start. I guess all that remains now is for the captain to go down with the ship.
Lt. Kif Kroker: That's surprisingly noble of you, sir.
Captain Zapp Brannigan: No, it's noble of you, Kif. As of now, you're in command. Congratulations, Captain.

I don't really get why the captain has caught so much flack for abandoning ship. Really, what's the difference between him and Capt. Sullenberger, who ditched a farking AIRPLANE into the river. Airplanes don't belong there; they can't swim, and, yet, Sullenberger gets ticker-tape parades, movie offers and accolades, while the Concordia's captain is yet another victim of ruthless character assassination, for nothing other than clearing the way off the ship for women & the elderly.

That's a ridiculous question. Captain Sullenberger is an unquestioned hero, venerated by the passengers of his airplane, because he's not Italian.

He's using that as his defense that he didn't abandon the ship and his duties to help the passengers evacuate. However, when he was asked by the Coast Guard how many people were still aboard, how many people would need assistance to evacuate, and how many casualties there were, Schettino could not produce a response. He should have had numbers up to the time he and his officers "fell overboard" and given them to the Coast Guard if he in fact fell off the boat. He should also have been actively trying to get back on board to supervise the rescue efforts. None of this "But it's dark!" or "There's a life-boat in my way!" He's the captain. He should order that rescue boat out of his way and take command of the scene and get back on board and organize the rescue. Most of the dead bodies they have found were near evacuation areas and wearing life-vests. If Schettino had actually overseen the evacuation like he was supposed to, I doubt there would have been any casualties.

/tl;dr Schettino and his officers "falling overboard" into a life-boat shouldn't have prevented them from getting back on board to supervise the evacuation and overseeing the safe evacuation of every passenger and crew member.
