Thread: What is wrong with these people?
"Love is playing every game as if it's your last."
WTH is* wrong with these people.
Just a little help with grammar.
By the way, I don't believe this. If it was Europe, who in their right mind you do it by boat with all the other continents and stuff in the way. Also, everywhere else the ps3 systems are being shipped via jets arial venues. Anyone forget about that?
FrICkIn NoOBz, lol man I was a bit worried there, lol thanks for reassuring me guys (phew)
So many sad people out there!
On an other point, Sony, I believe are not flying in PS3 to Europe, they are coming in on cargo ship, seem to remember Sony quoting they hope the Suez canal doesn't get closed but can't remember where I read it...PS3 Arrived 26 March and enjoying every minute: HD TV Funds : £400 (Toshiba or Sony ???)

Naval Vessels Race To Aid Blazing Merchant Ship

Coalition warships on counter-terrorist patrol in the Gulf of Aden responded to a distress call from a blazing container ship, the 64,000 tons Panamanian-registered Motor Vessel Hyundai Fortune.
The Dutch frigate HNLMS De Zeven Provincien (F802), the current command ship of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150), was first on the scene and rescued 27 people - 20 Korean, and seven Chinese crew members, three of them women.
Approximately 43 miles off the coast of Yemen, the cargo ship, which was headed north towards the Suez Canal, was in a perilous state, with flames and smoke pouring from the containers stacked on her upper decks. Sailors from the De Zeven Provincien risked their lives to fight the fires but they could not be contained, so the master of the cargo ship gave orders to evacuate the ship.
The De Zeven Provincien's Commanding Officer, Captain Maarten Stenvert said his crew performed the rescue in a "superb manner."
"They were continuously aware what was going on and of the potential dangers that the Hyundai Fortune posed to them, from such hazards as explosion and falling containers," explained Captain Stenvert.
One Hyundai Fortune crewmember sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was evacuated to the French Navy aircraft carrier FS Charles De Gaulle (R91), which is equipped with major medical facilities. The injured man was flown to the De Gaulle by a Lynx helicopter from the French destroyer FS Montcalm (D642) for further examination. The Charles De Gaulle and FS Montcalm were part of TF 473, led by French Rear Admiral Xavier Magne and currently supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, the coalition counter-terror campaign.
The other 26 mariners evacuated from Hyundai Fortune were flown ashore.

Also on the scene and working closely with the Montcalm during the drama was the British Type 23 frigate HMS Lancaster (F229).
On arriving the Lancaster relieved the Dutch warship of command duties and continued to provide navigation warning to other merchant shipping in what is a very busy waterway.
A Royal Navy spokesman explained further: "HMS Lancaster has positioned herself to monitor a 10nm exclusion zone around the vessel and warn merchant shipping of the associated hazards. Some containers have broken free during the blaze and, being partially submerged, present a danger to surface navigation."
Meanwhile the De Zeven Provincien made a rendezvous with a tug outbound from Aden to put a tow across to the merchant vessel. It was also intended that the Hyundai Fortune's master and some of the crew would then return to the stricken ship.

glad to hear that the storie was fake almost shat my pants.
That is pretty lame. I believed it at first...Somethings people do for attention..
+rep? for rick1991 i dunno how it works but whatever
It's just a cargo ship catching fire. Not surprising that the crew members were Chinese and Korean. Can't believe that Americans don't want foreigners to trade with them due to their jobs being outsourced. This is reality people! Companies are competing against similar competitors for maximizing profits. No company would ever care about the average worker or regular joe since it's just a small group of people.
I didn't really fall for this one as I haven't heard anything on the news about this (and since it was in Norwegian territory, there would have been)<a href="#" onclick="hoffify_add();return false;"><img src="http://hoffify.co.uk/images/hoffify.png" alt="Hoffify"></a>

We need to send Jack Bauer in for a rescue mission
WTH are wrong with these people???
Pretty sad statement as to what people like this are willing do in order to spread more FUD about the PS3. Btw this was considered a major incident for a cargo ship, but individual containers are lost at sea all the time in storms. Before I scrolled do to posts debunking this I noticed the line about Sony making a statement concerning the future of the PS3 (like one lost shipment would have this kind of impact)?PLAYING B3YOND since November 17th 2006 and F@H since 3/23/07.

I was looking this up and I could not belive someone would stoop that low to do this, shows the ignorance and how people are truly scared what the PS3 will do. this is lame
Just take a look at the FUD being spread on our very own forums:
I hope there was a free laptop out of the deal for whoever put the sticker there and photographed it...
