No need for them, as you well know.
What kind of international trouble are you trying to stir more elevated now?

Did you know that the Titanic had 860 boilers, and altogether they weighed over 1000 tons. :bounce:

29 of these were in the engine room, and the rest were in the kitchens and 1st class bedrooms. :yes: :yes:

When the Titanic was manufactured, they had to import a special floating crane from Germany because their own gantry cranes weren't big enough to do all the big jobs. :thumbd:

This was in 1912 and the Irish were't the best of friends with the Germans (unlike now). :wink:

So they bashed the crane with basket balls and cricket bats until it fell down. :o

In the end, the Germans had to come over to mend the crane, and this is probably what started the First World War. :o

The veracity of your alleged facts is difficult to verify. Are you able to furnish peer-reviewed confirmation of this matter?

IT was probably the Irish doing 'big jobs' on the Titanic that caused it to sink in the first place :wink:

Yes. It was a 500 ton crane and the H&W cranes could only lift 250 tons. :yes: :thumbd:

No, it said "Warning - SOOT"".

It's where the chimney comes out.

Thought you of all people would of have known that. :roll:

The 500T wasn't a warning - it was a boast. :yes:

That's why the workers didn't like it. :mad:

The crane was needed to fit the propellors. :thumbd:

What happened to the smoke then?

And why did they display the warning about the soot?
