They must've had the WORST navigator in maritime history! O_O

Not so weird if you RTFA

FTFA:The Terra Nova was built in 1884, sailed by Scott to the Antarctic in 1911, and later was used by a Newfoundland seal fishery. In 1942 it was chartered to sail supplies to Greenland, but was damaged by ice the next year; the US Coast Guard saved the crew but sunk the ship.

I heard they did some kind of experiment in Philadelphia.
 
2012-08-17 02:21:55 AM  
If the US Coast Guard purposely sunk it...then they must know where it was sunk. Mystery solved, hurrah!

Pretty pointless, now that NotARocketScientist dropped a stone in the pond.

I bet Greenland used to look a lot like Antarctica, from a distance.

Yeah, I don't think subby or Cpt. Greenlight read TFA, either.

"Wrong way" Corrigan is on the case.

Reading comprehension, how does it work?
 
2012-08-17 02:32:22 AM  
Were there any other-worldly horrors in the cargo hold? Perhaps having multiple tentacles and near-impenetrable skin?
 
2012-08-17 02:35:00 AM  
Clearly, the map wraps around. If you sail off the bottom edge, you reappear on the top.
 
2012-08-17 02:37:58 AM  
What's the weird part? Colony of local penguins inside?

What is truly weird s the level of Fail! that subbie achieved with his headline.

Not likely.

That's just what happens when you let my mom steer. "The turn's coming up and I'm not sure where, so slow down so I can read the street sings." (Keeps going 60 and shoots past the turn- which is, of course, my fault.) "Mom, we need to take the next left. Turn left up there. Left there. LEFT. ...And we just passed our turn." "Well, why didn't you say something?" Yeah, I could see one of our excursions ending up in Greenland someday.

/Really, really wish I was joking.
 
2012-08-17 02:55:03 AM  
It has a special interest to me, as I played Edgar Evans in a production of the play Terra Nova, about Captain Scott's ill-fated expedition to the South Pole. Fond memories.

Neat!

Sounds like your mom drives like my girlfriend. She doesn't even drive if i'll be in teh car now because i make her nervous! Her not paying attention to anything around her makes me nervous, go figure.


Lordfortuna gives me a hard time because I yell at other drivers for doing stupid shiat, despite the fact that he does the same effing thing. Also he tends to do this 'speed up, let off the gas, speed up, let off the gas' thing that drives me crazy (because it makes me feel sick).

Obviously it must have sailed through the center of the hollow earth and passed through the lands of the Vril.

I blame the poles.

I guess "decades-old shipwreck found exactly where it sunk" didn't have the greenlight appeal that your bullsh*t headline had.

I wonder if Mark Russel didn't read it either. Pick up story with a mysterious discovery in the headline and copy/paste a boring article.

Actually now that I clicked on their source link from Telegraph I see a much more informative article rather than a poor paraphrasing.

"The compass arrow is pointing that way and, by Poseidon's left nut, we're going that way!"

Maybe that's just what they wanted everyone to think?

If any locked crates are found on board I suggest they be left untouched.

Jeez, do I have to do everything around here?

/subby, you fail at reading comprehension
//and linking to decent articles
///really, not a single picture of said ship wreck, and probably far less than 20 words of article per ad on the page? You couldn't find better than that?
////in fact, there's probably about triple as many words in all the links to other articles than in the actual content

Scott was a piker and a whiner.

You want real Antarctic adventure? Ernest Shackleton. Hardassery of the highest order.
