indarwinsshadow: Fecal Conservative: Follow-up will be "It's a fake".

What I was thinking. Why would he have "strapped a violin" to himself. Strapped with what? The ship is sinking, and the thoughts going through your head is "hey. Gotta strap on my violin". I call bullsh*t. It's a fake.

As a musician, I would have done the same thing. It was most likely he had saved up for a very long time and it was his only source of income. He was optimistic about getting rescued perhaps? Or it was a sentimental instrument, like my cello that my dad bought for me at a garage sale for almost nothing. I consider it priceless now that he's gone. Of course, a violin is easier to strap on, but then again you could definitely use a cello as a flotation device if you stop up the sound holes (can't remember what they're called).
