I am on the tail end of a cold that has lasted about five afternoons only, so I am pretty grateful that the thing went away so fast.
I am not grateful for the news of the sub imploding the other afternoon with five people on board trying to go look at the Titanic wreck.
I know the thing had a carbon fiber hull and it didn’t hold up to the dire pressure of the water at a depth of almost 2 miles down. I’m sure it was genuinely frightening when the people inside realized what was happening, but my heating specialist buddy told me that they honestly had a minute or two where they knew they were going to die, something my friend and I talked about while working at the heating and cooling corp the other afternoon. Imagine being down 2 miles underwater when some leaks beginning to Spring into your sub, knowing that within a short time your sub was going to implode on you. My Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker neighbor told me that once the implosion started they only had a second or two left, however the local supplier owner told me that he would never go down that far in a sub because the pressure is just way too much. I’m sure they had a fun time on the way down but once they got to the point of no return and things started to go terrible that fun would hastily turn into terror. Well, my air conditioner system is calling my name to come wash the HEPA filter but I will say a silent prayer for these exhausting adventurers who are lost forever.
