A friend of mine and I had a interesting discussion last night. She is planning a trip to the USA and is trying to decide if she would take a plane or a boat. Amount of time spent traveling is not a worry.
Then we had some fun with this, WHAT IF the mode of transportation you chose had a catastrophe (Crashed or Sank)
Would you rather be on the boat or the plane.
On the plane you had a better chance of an instant death, where as the boat you could drown of wait for the sharks to come (unless you were lucky enough to be in a lifeboat with no water your could drink (cant drink sea water) and a long drawn out death but a very bad chance of rescue.
On the other hand the plane if it made a soft landing might stay afloat or might not.
Whats your choice and why
I would rather explode quickly than re-enact the Titanic because if the other people were anything like the assholes on our honeymoon cruise it would be every person for themselves aboard the ship.
