    Costa Concordia Captain's Excuse: 'I Tripped'

    Having had a long weekend to mull it over, one might think the captain of the Costa Concordia would be able to come up with a better alibi.

    <snip>

    In a recently released conversation between Schettino and the Italian coastguard, the captain can be heard waffling as the coastguard barks orders to return to the ship to oversee its evacuation, claiming that the vessel was tipping dangerously and that it was too dark. Now, the captain has explained at a hearing just how he ended up ditching the Costa Concordia for the safety of a lifeboat in the first place:

    "Suddenly, since the ship was at a 60-70 angle, I tripped and I ended up in one of the boats," Schettino said, according to The Guardian. "That's how I found myself in the lifeboat."

    Yep, he tripped into a lifeboat, then was swept ashore by the tide and then accidently fell into a pair of dry socks, in which he was found not even an hour later.

    This guy is so screwed and rightly so.

    There was no hint as to this guys character or capability up until now, not even a hint that he should not be the captain of a ship?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I guess all those jokes we used to hear about the "Italian Navy" were true.

    I keep asking myself what their selection process consists of? He must know someone.

    Perhaps they have protected groups and have to meet hiring and advancement quotas that throw safety to the wayside as a secondary concern.

    The CEO of Costa quickly blamed the Captain and "human error" which in essense is right. But they are to blame for putting these incompetent assholes in these top positions in the first place.
