A new book details the sinking of the ill-fated ship “Titanic” and points the finger at the low quality rivets used in the construction of the ship.  Now, doesn’t that sound familiar?  Much like the old story of the horse that the blacksmith shoe’d with a missing nail, that caused the shoe to come off, that threw the rider to the ground, that prevented the delivery of the message he was carrying, that the general never received, that eventually lost the war.
 
It also reminds me of a classic line by Steve Buscemi in Armaggedon when he’s being strapped in to the space shuttle,  “You know we’re sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn’t it?”
 
And so the human saga goes on-never remembering what happened before……. for more info go to
