"The ship was sinking. Fast. We could feel it moving beneath us, being sucked into the sea at an accelerating pace, as though pulled towards its doom by some enormous undersea monster with ten thousand tentacles and a voracious appetite."

Ugh.

Wow, that is some horrible writing. It probably took him 30 minutes to come up with that, too.

Article mentioned his NEW wife like 10 times. I was waiting for a "and his old wife was boring holes in the side of the ship"

Oh and he might want to say "in my nightmares" instead of "dreams" he sees his NEW wife drowning.

I have no probably with people writing books about extreme, exotic or unusual experiences they've had. WTF, subby?

Coming from a computer scientist it could have been worse.

We were getting thrown about like elements in a red black tree in the great rebalancing. To this day when I get a SortedMap I have to check the implementation and get pings of guilt relating to those little comparables.

I threw the rope over the edge, this was my LinkedList of Hope! Looked over it dawned on me: seeking to a point will take be log N time!

As I was in the maze of cabins and hallways I prayed for help. Dijkstra came to me saying that this is but a minimum spanning tree. I said but that's an inverse Ackerman, he became annoyed and said of course I meant shortest path.

Haven't they buried the survivors yet?

I think I'll borrow it from the library and read it while relaxing on the open deck on my next cruise.

That was excellent, thank you for that link.

But but but we are a few weeks away from faster than light starships but we can't flip over a boat?

Thanks! That was a cool segment.

At first, I thought, "It's STILL THERE?" I had no idea how large of an operation this is.

Nice find. I haven't watched this show since about 1990.

Back away from that keyboard, ma'am. Just back away. Everybody stay calm, and nobody gets hurt.
