#1 James Cameron Mariana Trench Dive03-26-2012, 12:23 AM
He did it. James Cameron just surfaced about an hour ago after making a successful dive to the floor of the Mariana Trench. Only two other people ever accomplished that before back in 1960. He went down 6.8 miles alone and was down about 8 hours. I can't wait for the National Geographic special on this. Excellent job Mr. Cameron.

he did it specifically to gain footage for his next Avatar movie, while a fantastic accomplishment, his tree-hugging anti-human movies can shove it"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings..."

The April National Geographic edition has some really cool photos of the Titanic wreck, in their article commemorating the 100 anniversary of it's sinking. Cameron was interviewed for the article.
I'm not a Titanic buff, nor am I a huge fan of the movie. I liked the effects, sets and costumes in the movie, but the story and the acting were overrated. I couldn't believe it won picture of the year, it wasn't that good.

She's a cool lady, always one of my heroes. Also heard her years ago at the STL Zoo.
Some time ago met Richard Ballard. Those adventurer types make good money as motivational speakers at sales seminars. He was very impressive.
Also met Mrs Leaky at the Racquet Club in St Louis, where Charles Lindbergh met with the 1 %'ers of their time who financed the Spirit of St Louis in his solo flight.
She's the person who discovered "Lucy" in the Rift Valley in Tanzania. I admire those adventurous types.
