A precis would be:

If they had seen the iceberg earlier they would have avoided it (!!!!)

There were no binoculars in the crows nest

Binoculars with a laser iceberg melter would have saved them - unfortunately they hadn't been invented then. They have been invented now, but I'm still waiting for the Patent to come through.

I have a crap internet connection and everything is very slow. Will I get a blimp at Kate Winslet's boobarinis if I put the hours in waiting to see the film clip? Everytime it comes on TV I fall asleep and miss them.

And another thing, if binoculars are called binoculars, how come telespopes aren't called "noculars"?
