That's interesting.  Article says they were found near the central part of the ship.  I am surprised, given how rare it is to find skeletal remains in the sea.  Hopefully, their families will have closure now.

I'm glad to hear the super-intelligent sharks didn't eat them.

They were found on the side of the ship that got crushed when it capsized.  Now that it's upright but still largely underwater, they probably have access to corridors that were compressed earlier.

But where did they bury the survivors?

How did they know they weren't the first two?

Those were eaten by the last survivors.

That's why I would never make it as a cruise ship investigator; I'd never think about checking their stomachs. Good work ol' boy!

That one of those sets of remains wasn't the captain, is a travesty.

The captain may yet become a set of remains at the wreck site.

Crap. My cunning plan is going to backfire on me. I figured that'd be the last place they looked. Getting rid of dead hookers used to be so much easier.
 
2013-09-27 02:46:03 AM  
What if the remains weren't even passengers or crew at all?

If you weren't such a bad person you wouldn't have this problem.

Hey, I'm not the one who has to dispose of dead hookers.

Have you tried another line of work.  Or is this the only thing you can do in the Obama economy?

That headline isn't funny at all...
 
2013-09-27 04:56:00 AM  
me, t' lad and my sister were talking about this, and about whether there was a chance either of the two missing people saw an opportunity to just disappear and start their life again. seems not

it was an interesting discussion though... how bad would your life have to be to consider just jumping into the water and swimming into the dark, or sitting in the lifeboat saying nothing then quietly absconding on shore, safe in the knowledge you'd be assumed drowned. would people whose lives arent even that bad just see this unique chance and consider even for a moment taking it?

"Divers spotted human remains Thursday near Italy's Costa Concordia cruise ship..."
then
"Coast Guard and Customs Service divers located the remains near the central part of the ship, where survivors had said the two were last seen."  (another article stated it was deck four).

Excellent reporting there... for a 3 year old with a diaper full of shiat, that's in a rush.

Have you seen the latest shiat to come out of his mouth?

He's blaming his helmsman.  Because this:

news.bbcimg.co.uk

Is OBVIOUSLY the helm's fault (and he is serving a short term in prison, presumably for following orders he knew could put lives at risk).

This guy should never have been given the duties and responsibility of being a captain.  It's one thing if a shoestring operation like Bounty hires a reckless chucklefark like Walbridge, but Costa Crociere/Carnival should have more stringent internal review procedures.

Yes, Tests confirm it. They are still the last two casualties.

When a human is found doesn't he usually remain found? Isn't it only odd if he disappears again?

That would be almost impossible to pull off without foreknowledge of the event. But then, what if it was planned...

This is correct. You don't hotdog with a thousand foot cruise boat abaft a known inshore reef. It's rather rare you can lay an accident so squarely at the feet of one person, but in the case of "Here, hold my drink and watch this", it's Skipper shiattino.

And you know I'm salty because of "abaft". There's no day of the year I don't talk like a pirate.

true, financially. if you had literally nothing to lose though - awful debts about to coming crashing down on your ass...

anyways. it was an interesting discussion

is there really a theory it was planned?? i thought there was an [unsubstantiated] rumour there was a woman in the bridge with el capitano cowardy cowardy custard?

^^^THIS^^^ x 1,000100

This head-of-knuckle was entrusted with the safety and lives of and behaved like a puffy-chested schoolboy showoff.
Then, a literal boatload of folks died/were hurt.

I find it impossible to summon even the thinnest sliver of sympathy that he sits in jail.

I have no idea. I just made that up. Maybe I should run with it though. It could be fun to start my own conspiracy theory.

People at the harbor on Giglio Island watch salvage operations around the refloated Costa Concordia cruise ship. The ship's horn sounded for the first time since the 2012 sinking, mixing with applause and cheers in a dramatic climax to the massive salvage operation.

heh... cool...  I want video!

I am noticing a common theme from almost every single Italian on that video.  they are all saying nothing has happened.   Is it something about Italian culture that makes them all want to deny the obvious in the face of an emergency?

That happens with all Southern Europeans.  It's how Greece went broke.  Deny reality until someone else comes in and points out what a pickle you're in, then attack the messenger.  That idiot captain no doubt truly believes he isn't at fault for this.

I mean the people with the MOST sense in that video are the children...  Weather its the father telling the little girls that nothing is going on and nothing has happened... or the other dad telling his teenage son that its just an electrical problem while the son points out that the boat is tilting, they might be taking on water, and the crew are wearing life vests...

Well, yes.  It's more complicated than that, actually.  There is an actual term for this but I'm blanking on it.   I'm of Italian heritage, so I like reading books about Italian culture.  One book was about the Mafioso "Gomorrah".  In it, the author discusses how and why Italians are able to stare at violence in the face, and yet deny it's existence.  The book is about the mafia in Naples.   Really, really good, but sad, book.

The part where she lets Jack drown at the end made me kinda sad, but then I was thought, "Why didn't you just just take turns on the floating thing?"

Because as soon as you hit that water, you are doomed to hypothermia.  Taking turns would have only killed them both.  She barely survived as it was....
