Costa Concordia sinking - GPS problem?
Something isnt right here with the cruise liner that sunk earlier.

It is a state of the art liner with the most modern up to date GPS system and the captain and crew have years of experience in these waters and the particular route. They were also in very calm waters too.


It was dark so they rely on the GPS system to guide them in these waters so why the hell did they hit rocks?

I remember last year a few airports has to recalibrate their guidance systems due to magnetic pole shift, could this be a similar problem?

It got itself into shallow waters. This would only happen in a huge storm that could push the boat off coarse.

There were perfect calm waters, with a sophisticated underwater radar system which gives them ample time and warning to avoid rocks at the bottom of the sea, these systems are watched by a huge crew who sail the thing.

This is really weird.

What probably happened:

- The blode woman seduced the captain, and atracted him to outside the command bridge.

- Someone else went into the command bridge, and changed the course of the ship, making it hit the rocks.

I guess you didn't really studied the personality of the captain...

I bet this is the kind of excuse he will use in his trial.


If it was a GPS mistake, why wouldn't he react like a REAL captain and not like a complete asshole?

The blonde woman has Romanian citizenship. That explains the disaster.
