regards the alleged RMS olympic / titanic switch - any conspiracy theorists care to explain HOW this was acheived
Well our buddy ShaneR thinks it was as simple as painting "Titanic" onto the side of the ship, and "Bob's your Uncle" you're done.... no one
could figure that out.
Of course there's the fact that the Olympic would have had to have it's entire hull repainted, all of the stuff that was in the Titanic would have
to be moved into the Olympic... you know, the furniture, the china (that was custom made for the Titanic, with the ships name on it), and every single
place where the name "Olympic" appeared had to be altered, which is in a TON of places on a ship of that size (like the life saving rings, etc).
All of this would have to have been done by hundreds of employees involved, due to the shear size of the operation, and to think that no one would
have spoken up when 1,500 people were killed when it sank, is completely irrational.
These ships were massive, and making such a switch on such an incredibly high profile ship, when it was getting ready for its maiden voyage would be a
huge undertaking, one I don't think happened, especially since we didn't hear anything from the hundreds of dockworkers and White Star employees who
would have been involved in the fraud...not to speak of the families of those who were killed in the sinking.
