Damn, I told that fat lady to walk down the middle and not either side, especially, the portside!

Oh great! Another oil slick. I think they should go back to sailing merchants.

It's darned hard to stay on an even keel when you're down flooding, possibly breached across compartments, etc. There's nothing funny about collisions and trying to stay afloat at sea folks. It's a horrifying experience, trust me.

I wonder how many containers lie at the bottom of the ocean? I'm sure many have fallen off in rough seas or other similiar incidents.

I wonder if he brought it on himself by shinning a light at the approaching ship!

I'm sure we'll find out more from the official inquiry in due time.

From what I've read so far, the authorities seem to be keeping remarkably calm, and the harbour crews appear to be executing a textbook operation to get things cleaned up.

Yeah, seem to be dealing with it well

But can't be any oil spilled as otherwise the Indian President would be on TV 24/7 whining like a girl whilst pointing a finger at old whitey...........
