When I write my will, I'm going to put in a stipulation that someone has to photograph me in the casket and post in WAYWT. Then I'm going to fake it to see what y'all say about me after I kick the bucket!

Thomas you naughty boy!!! Why is this not in the appropriate insanity thread!

Oh, I've never been on a cruise, so I did not know that. Interesting.

White tie was expected on virtually all ocean liners in the first class dining room up until World War II. After the war, it switched to black tie, and remained so for 20+ years.

Modern cruise ships, so far as I know, have no dress code, except for the QE2 and the QM2 when on Atlantic crossings.

I cannot think of a more boring way to spend free time than aboard a cruise. Sailors had shore leave and bad reputations for a reason. There is nothing to do aboard a ship. It is very, very, boring. Do you guys realize that there are no shops on a ship? As for all those activities they have aboard modern cruises, you you all realize that you can do all of these things on land. And on land, there is no chance of seasickness either. Also, ocean is generally very, very, boring to look at. Imagine driving across prairie, except for weeks and months on end. The highlight of a cruise is to see interesting land. News flash. You could be on that land. And if you really feel the need to see it from afar, a speedboat can take you out and back in about 30 minutes.

So... no crusies in old Styleforum.

Harry posted this in a couple different threads, and then gets banned. Was he talking about J, and did J murder him?

I really wish we had a "Banned" thread with copies of the offending posts. One of the most fun things on these boards is when a thread gets totally out of hand.

Sea voyages jumped the shark() when sailing vessels left the scene. I'd give my left nut to take a proper sailing voyage.

I would pay someone to construct that thread. Seriously.
