At least it was about as fast as it gets.

I hope beyond all hope, it happened fast on the initial way down and not… like this morning after 72+ hours of darkness, then eternal darkness

Not gonna pretend I know what I'm talking about but if they lost contact with them like 8 hours in it would seem like that's when it happened then I'd assume.

Yeah, and the report of the navy hearing the loud bang, at least in this guy's brain, says inside the doomed sub it was probably a "whats that sound...?" and then boom, its over.

Apparently the navy did know days ago that it imploded...

I have a few CBS Sunday Morning's on my DVR.    I was going through what was on them to delete and I see from just a few months ago I still have one that has a story on this guy and this submersible. 

Not sure I can even watch it now.

Just awful and I feel most for the young man, poor kid was only 19.

Just hope it was quick like they say. Remember, they told us the crew of the Challenger died immediately when it exploded in '86, then we found out some time later they lived the whole way down to impact

I watched that CBS This Morning report the other day; it’s chilling to watch now. Stockton Rush’s hubris is the reason this happened. He and four others paid with their lives. It’s awful. 😞

Tough to watch I'm sure

Now I just read about the kid. Turns out he was frightened and didn't want to go but his father was a Titanic enthusiast and the kid went because it was Father's Day

That kid was just trying to bond with his dad on Father’s Day. Just heartbreaking 😞

Apparently the kids aunt said that he was nervous about it and didn't really want to go but only went cause his dad loved Titanic stuff and it was Father's day. Just awful. 

It's also interesting that this guy who does absolutely crazy sh!t like flying in this old sh!t plane that's roof came off mid flight thought the sub was too sketchy... 

 

 

Here's that airplane clip...

I've never seen this before, I can't even imagine being on this plane with the top blowing off like that, absolutely wild that the passengers were able to save 1 stewardess from being sucked out by holding on to her.

I remember it when it happened. Frightening.  I knew a stewardess got sucked out................I would think she was dead immediately.  I didn't know about the passengers saving another.

That link you posted has a video that mentioned it, they also said they never found the stewardess who got sucked outs body either, just terrible

I really need a place to just dump my woes. Don't where else to go so this place wins. 

I have been visiting my sister near Cape May. We drove to Red Bank on Monday to take one of her dogs, Jill, to get 6 month check on her cataract lenses. She has 2 Jack Russell's, brother and sister, 14 years old.

While at Red Bank Vetinary Hospital I asked the ophthalmologist about her lethargy.  Since she is diabetic I asked to have her sugar checked. He said normal for diabetic dog and she needed to see a vet. We are in a friggin vetinary hospital and he tells us to see a vet. I ask at front desk and they said 2-3  hour wait. I went nuts! I had us leave, called her vet and drove there. 2+ hour drive on GSP on July 3 back home to vet.

We get there Jill is struggling. Her bloodwork was off the wall. Sugar fine. I asked for x-ray. It showed a large cancerous tumor taking up most of her body cavity. My sister freaked. We went home and held her for all of the 4th.

Today we sent her to the Raibow Bridge. It was the most difficult thing I've ever done.  Dealing with my health issues, including cancer, was nothing compared to this heartache .

I've known lots of folks with canines but Jilly was my favorite. Laid back and accepted  all people unconditionally, even me. During my rehab here from various surgeries, she was always by my side. First time I have ever loved an animal in my entire life and first time watching them be euthanized. Felt like murder but I know it was the correct thing to do. 

Me and my sis will have  difficult days coming. I know we will get through this but it still sucks. RIP Jill. Love you always.  💔 

Thnx for letting me vent and cry.

Sorry for your loss Dew, putting animals to sleep is one of life's worst moments. I have been cursed with it several times now and it hurts just as much each time.

Yeah same, sorry for your loss, I know how it feels…I’ve put down my share of cats through the years and it never gets less painful.  We grow so attached to these balls of fur…completely bond with them.  They become one of the family.

Really sorry to hear that StarDew. Losing one of your fur kids is freakin' painful. My heartfelt thoughts to you and your sister.
