3. It's incredible, considering the size of that ship.

And also pretty cool, actually watching it happen...

5. She hit a 0 degree list about 10pm last night...

 

I think that made it a total of 19 hrs from 70 degrees to 0.

throughout the operation. Well done, engineers and technicians! There is something so satisfying in seeing a dangerous job carried out so flawlessly.

6. You have to hand it to the salvors!

 

I was VERY skeptical when the Parbuckling Project was first revealed. The project seemed, quite frankly, impossible.

The amazing thing was the last hour. I kept on doing screenshots of the live Reuters feed and comparing it to later shots and, towards the end, you could see her physically moving!

10. Unfortunately, I missed the last and most exciting

 

hour. It was already 2 a.m. here in Europe when I finally called it quits. I was falling asleep in front of my screen.

The best part happened around 4 a.m. CET.

11. Yes, that was pretty cool, but,

what about the 2 missing people? It's been in this position for months. Did no one go in with scuba gear to find them? They could have been in an air pocket and possibly survived. Now that the ship is in an upright position, and from what I understand they are going to fill it with air to lift it up, when exactly are they going to go find the corpses?

15. I knew they went in, and could not find them.

So where did they go? People just don't vanish in thin air? Perhaps there is a section they didn't search? I woudl not have given up until they were found. Once this boat is a float again, lets see if they can find them.

PS. It's "serious", not series!!!

17. You should stop casting asparagus ...

 

and get series!!!

Ok ok ... I know you're a recent addition here ...

These are a set of recent sayings, malapropisms, from our right wing friends at Free Republic ... They are well known to most DUers who have had the benefit of exposure in here, to learn over time

" THIS IS HUGH!!!!"
" Stop casting asparagus!"
" Get a brain, Morans!"
" ARE YOU SERIES!!!#!!! . !!!"

But hey, thanks for letting me know how to spell serious, because Sister Mary Ellen may come back from the dead and spank my arse in public for such a gross and careless error .... I'm in hiding as I type ...



EDIT: I almost forgot ... There is absolutely no way that anybody can answer your "when" question ... we don't know when ... we presume they will do it when the process is ready and access is available... no reasonable person here would presume to know the date and time of when that would happen

They died or floated away loooong ago.

18. Of course some very brave divers went in to find them, duh. Look at the photos, man.

You've seen the photos by time you posted, if you have any interest in this, of the crushed sections of the underwater side.

A moment's thought would have helped you realize that when the ship capsized, it was not in the stable final resting position. That makes the search underwater then very dangerous.

It seems you have little idea just how dangerous and difficult such work is, or you wouldn't have been so cavalier with your remarks.

25. I have a sick feeling the 2 remaining victims are in the crushed part of the ship...

 

It would explain why divers couldn't find them.

19. Here, this might give you an idea of "did no one go in with scuba gear"?

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costa_Concordia_disaster#Search_for_missing_people (emphasis added):

Between 14 and 30 January, rescue divers searched within the ship for missing people. The head of the coast guard diving team described the conditions inside the ship, still perched on a 37-metre (120 ft) ledge, as "disastrous".[80] Pitch-black conditions with large furniture drifting around made the rescue operation hazardous.[81] Divers would find a path into the ship and tie down obstacles such as mattresses, before making noise to alert trapped people.[82] The divers worked in pairs for safety and searched each assigned area slowly in a zig-zag manner. The search dives were planned as 40 minutes in duration, with sufficient extra compressed air in the scuba tanks in case of emergency. The divers had two torches positioned on their helmets because underwater visibility varied from a few inches to about 2 feet. In addition, divers marked their route by trailing a line to be used to lead them back out in low visibility[83] and positioned extra emergency air tanks within the ship.[84] The divers were from the Navy, Coast Guard, and Vigili del Fuoco.[85]

On 14 January, divers searched the ship until nightfall.[86] Divers and firefighters continued to search for survivors who might have been trapped in the ship, and rescued a Korean newlywed couple trapped in a cabin two decks above the water line,[87] and the ship's purser suffering a broken leg.[88]

On 16 January, violent waters shifted the ship about 1.5 centimetres (0.6 in), interrupting rescue work[89]—trap doors were shut and debris fell on rescuers[85]—and giving rise to fear that the ship could be pushed into 68-metre (224 ft) deep waters[89] or that the fuel could leak.[90] Operations resumed about three hours later.[89] Throughout the process, rescuers set off explosives to create holes in the ship's hull to reach previously inaccessible areas.[81][91][92][93] On 18 January, rescue efforts were suspended again when the ship shifted, but shortly afterward were resumed.[94]

On 20 January, the ship began shifting by 1.5 centimetres (0.6 in) per hour,[94] but on 24 January, Franco Gabrielli, the Italian Civil Protection Agency head, said the ship was "stable".[95] The same day divers recovered the body of the 16th victim.[96] On 29 January, the operation was suspended because the ship had shifted 3.8 centimetres (1.5 in) in six hours and because of high waves.
