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.

Despicable.

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!!!

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

Does anyone else picture this:

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.
