Building Titanic II

Just because the first one sank spectacularly after hitting an iceberg, it doesn't mean that it's a bad idea. After all, isn't second time's often the charm?

Here's the plan to build Titanic II:

An Australian mining magnate has commissioned a Chinese shipyard to build a replica of the ill-fated Titanic, complete in every detail but equipped with modern technology to prevent a repeat of the original's fateful maiden voyage 100 years ago.

Clive Palmer, a Queensland mining billionaire with strong links to China, told Australian media that he had signed a memorandum of understanding with CSC Jinling Shipyard to build the ship.

He said construction of the luxury cruise ship would begin next year and the ship would be ready to sail in 2016."It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," he said in a statement.

he probably won't build this ship, Clive Palmer has a long history of making stupid statements then backtracking. earlier in the year he claimed the CIA were funding green groups to protest against his mining interest , then later claimed he was only joking
