    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Huge waves kill 2 on board cruise ship.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    My fear of Cruise ships, Rouge waves, and old people has been realized in that article. I fear the end of the world is near.

    Time to retreat to the compound!
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    I have seen that those "Rogue Waves" are far more common than first believed, and are quite possibly responsible for a significant number of vanished vessels over the centuries. There was one that severely damaged a north sea oil platform a few years back.

    I've heard of a "red tide" but never a red wave.

    stay away from the windows even though you want to see the waves. terrible way to go and what a terrible thing to witness. very unfortunate for the friends and families of those killed
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Even Popeye knew to "batten down the hatches" on the for-deck when the big seas come.

    We don't believe those stories.I just figure those events of gun play and mayhem are the usual wild west shows to draw in us tourists from the north.
