Talking You Brits certainly know how to build ocean liners!!

The Queen Mary 2 just arrived yesterday, and I was watching it turn will crossing the Bay bridge. That thing is MASSIVE!!
* 2700 passengers.
* 1300 crew members.
* The equivalent of 5 luxury hotels.

It's heading out to Hawaii today, on it's trip around the world, so I won't get to have a second look.

It's awesome. I wonder what the first class accomodation on that thing is like.

Women's tennis sucks.

Doesn't surprise me. Everything our country has achieved seems to sink when put under the microscope.

Still, if it wasn't for Britain, America would not be what it is today...

Yep! And one thing's for sure...
With the environment as it is today, it certainly won't hit an iceberg,split in half and sink. It'll be an oil slick and go up in flames. J/K...
