Brave Passengers Can Ride “Titanic II” Starting in 2022

Would you be brave enough to step foot on the ship?

Just in time for the spooky and macabre season surrounding Halloween, news out of Dubai looks to resurrect one of history’s most heartbreaking moments.

In 1912, nearly 1,500 men, women, and children found themselves moving on to the next life after their cruise on the Titanic’s maiden voyage was cut short by catastrophe.  The ship herself would become the thing of legend after striking an iceberg and sinking dramatically to the murky depths of the frozen North Atlantic.  She was considered “unsinkable” by the company who created her, and was believed to be the most technologically advanced ship in the world at the time of the accident.

To add further fright, a team of scientists reached the Titanic’s wreckage in 1985, providing the world with a glimpse of the dark depths and jagged edges of her precarious position nearly 13,000 feet below the surface.

Now, for the brave of heart, a replica of the ill-fated ship is preparing to set sail in 2022.

A replica of the infamous ship dubbed the Titanic II is set to make its first voyage in 2022, thanks to Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who’s fronting a group called Blue Star Line.

Blue Star Line is trying to create an authentic Titanic experience, providing passengers with a ship that has the same interiors and cabin layout as the original vessel, while adding modern safety procedures and 21st century technology.

It will welcome 2,400 passengers and 900 crew members, which is almost the exact same number on board the boat that sank in 1912.

The group even provides video updates on the ship’s progress:

The ship’s frist voyage will be from Dubai to England, and, from there, Titanic II will resume the service that her previous incarnation was originally destined for:  A jaunt across the same cold, North Atlantic vastness between England and New York.

ABC Captures INSANE New Details in Smollett Hate Hoax

The reality of Smollett’s crime grows more bizarre by the minute.

Published

Jussie Smollett

The nation has been gripped by a terrible and repugnant scandal as of late, as actor Jussie Smollett has become Hollywood’s latest persona non grata. Smollett’s alleged crime is an abhorrent and grotesque one.  The actor stands credibly accused of hoaxing a series of hate crimes against himself for the stated purpose of inflating his net worth. Obviously, the American people are furious with Smollett, despite the mainstream media’s overtly tepid coverage of the vile events conjured by the Empire actor. Now, in a stunning turn of events, ABC News has obtained primary source information regarding Smollett’s disgusting cry for attention, and they are just as damning as one would imagine.  ABC News has obtained a copy of a $3,500 check apparently written by “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett to Abimbola Osundairo, one of the two brothers who police say helped stage an attack on Smollett in Chicago last month. Meanwhile, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, appearing exclusively on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, doubled down on his contention that the ‘Empire’ star fabricated the account. The check’s memo line reads, “5 week Nutrition/Workout program (Don’t Go),” which police have corroborated. The check was dated Jan. 23, six days before Smollett claims he was attacked in a hate crime. A copy of the check was first published online by TMZ. The bizarre memo line is explained further: Sources close to Smollett told ABC News the actor was starting to train for an upcoming music video titled “Don’t Go,” in which he had to appear shirtless. ABC News obtained a calendar entry of Smollett’s that indicates the video was scheduled to be filmed Feb. 23. Smollett has recently claimed that his repeatedly hoaxed hate crimes were committed due to his use of the party drug ecstasy; a purely pathetic attempt at an excuse and…

CIA Posts Series of Bizarre, Oscar-Related Tweets

This is the sort of pandering that you’d never expect from the CIA.

For many, pondering on the subject of the Central Intelligence Agency usually conjures up images of stealthy spooks and James Bond-esque, behind-the-scene heroics. Like their brethren at the FBI, the CIA is one of the few agencies in the nation that We The People have unofficially chosen to be hands-off about.  We understand perfectly well that the CIA isn’t always playing by the rules, (or even playing fair at all), but we mostly understand why they do what they do. What happened during The Oscars, however, has many people second guessing their nonchalance about the intelligence agency. Some Twitter users were a bit confused during the Oscars on Sunday as the Central Intelligence Agency tweeted about the fictional technology behind the Marvel superhero film “Black Panther.” The agency sent out a dozen or so tweets about the science featured in the Oscar-winning film and even asked for advice on which “Black Panther” technology its 2.5 million followers would like to see used in “the real world.” It also tweeted a series of photos and poll questions “to get your views on the feasibility of Wakandan technology today,” referring to the fictional African nation where much of the film takes place. The agency, which has received backlash for meddling in African affairs in past, also linked to press release from a CIA scientist named Rebecca, who it said had researched “Black Panther” communication technology. There is little doubt that the actions were meant to reach a younger crowd, possibly for the sake of the agency’s public relations team. Unfortunately, due to that reality, the tweets were seen as little more than youth-pandering.
