I don’t think I’ve ever seen a worse marriage proposal idea than this one right here. Imagine running a marathon and having to stop during your 16th mile to get engaged? Not to mention the fact that she has to run the rest of the race with tears running down her face cause this guy couldn’t just wait ten more miles. You always propose when they finish the race because if she gets hurt before that 26.2 finish line, thats immediately a terrible sign for getting married. ‘Yeah I was doing great but then I was proposed to and rolled my ankle two miles down the road so I think I’m gonna say no.’ That’s a fantastic way to become a Thanksgiving joke for this girls family for the rest of eternity.
Imagine the scene if this girl says no. Do you force her to stop running so that you can “talk about it”? I honestly think a guy like this would start running next to her in his jeans to try and figure out what went wrong. Other runners must have been absolutely bullshit. If I saw someone going east to west during a marathon I would run right through them. I don’t give a shit if your husband is trying to pop down on a knee and marry you, I’m trying to finish a race damnit. The worst part about running is having to stop and start again and this guy just has no respect for marathon runners, or his fiancé for that matter. Not true, I’m sure he respects his wife, but does he like her? Definitely a question up for debate if he wasn’t trying to slip into one of the many hotels along this route after proposing.
Initially, I wouldn’t touch this ship with a fifty foot pole. Getting on a boat named after the most famous shipwreck in boater(?) history is something that most people would swiftly turn down. However, my sails have shifted in my thought process around this replica of the Titanic. I am now, officially, fully on board with this remake and will be trying to get aboard the ship below for the maiden voyage from Dubai to New York.
“Titanic II will apparently be outfitted with plenty of life boats — and will have a welded, not riveted hull — plus modern navigation and radar equipment.” I don’t know the difference between a welded and a riveted hull, but I do know a lot of things have changed since 1908. We’re not dealing with the same dumpster fire that set sail 10 days before Fenway Park opened. It’s the 21st century, this mother fucker has radar and navigation, chunks of ice aren’t going to be popping up in the middle of nowhere and taking down this vessel. Did the ship in 1912 have wifi? Did that ship have people who could film the entire ship sinking for an electric snap story? To answer both questions — no.
In a perfect world, I’d have the 100,000 dollars that it cost’s to get onto Titanic II. But in this imperfect place that allows the Giants to cover on Monday Night Football, I know the likelihood of me attending this Dubai to New York trip will only be possible if I’m wearing an apron and cleaning cabins on the ship the entire time. It’s worst case scenario but there will 100% be jobs open due to the “save the passengers” mentality that sinking ships have. Either way, my long term goal is to get to Dubai and get on that ship. If it sinks, then you’ll know I died happily thinking of this Leo gif.
