I wonder if Rick has read "The Creature From Jekyll Island?" He was going a bit C2C guest there for a bit. G. Edward Griffin should come in to try to pawn first editions of the book.

From what I've been told, Rick and the other personalities have long since ceased working there, and they only appear (except for Old Man RIP) for the televised segments which as you can tell from the clip, are heavily edited.  I had a friend that went there once, and he said  that they have security people there making sure that you don't take pictures, etc.  Also, that they close the place up when actual filming is being done.  That's what he claimed, anyway.

Like a lot of "reality" shows that aren't reality. I'm pretty sure "Antiques Roadshow" is legitimate.

Remember the RMS Carpathia?  That was the ship that rescued 705 passengers after the sinking of the Titanic.  Well, the Carpathia herself was sunk on July 17, 1918 after being hit by three torpedoes from the German U-boat U-55.  There were 57 passengers on board and 166 crewmen, five of which perished.

"while serving as chief officer on Campania in 1907, Rostron claimed to have sighted a sea serpent, which he later wrote about in detail in his memoir “Home from the Sea.” "

Ha, remember on the other gab site when the stranded U-boat crew were captured and claimed their sub had been disabled by a sea creature?

I hadn't heard of the ship switching and there are some odd coincidences there, but..... 

The Californian had nothing but survival blankets for cargo?  That's odd because in the movies (my only source, I'm man enough to admit) the Californian was doing anything but being on standby to rescue the sinking Titanic.  They had in fact, missed receiving the first SOS calls and they had also switched off their telegraph connection (because it was beddy-by time) just minutes after the Titanic started to sink. 

Didn't the Captain and crew in the Titanic go down with the ship?  If so, then they were giving their company total dedication and service because if it wasn't them that rammed the "Olympic" into the iceberg, then who did?

Finally, I don't think that four or five people could have the time to repaint the ship names and switch all of the named items (thousands of plates, napkins,  name plates in rooms, etc) in two gigantic passenger liners without notice.  I say four or five people because it would take that few people to keep such a thing a secret, even back in 1918.  Those sister ships were big and I think a large crew of switcherwooers would have been needed to accomplish the task.  Though nowhere has anybody come across a diary from Aunt Jane or a journal from Uncle Charly that shows they were part of a secret ploy to switch ships.  People are people and there are always a few who can't resist leaving a record that they played a part in some type of nefarious plot.

But, in the immortal words of Fats Waller:  "One never knows, do one?"

As Rix mentioned earlier   July 16-17th is the 100 year anniversary of the slaughtering of Nicholas II, his family and his entourage. 

Here is the room in Ipatiev Place where the murders took place:

The building where this took place was torn down and in 2003 the Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land was
opened - the altar stands at the exact spot where Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra, their daughters Olga, Maria, Tatiana, Anastasia and their son Alexia died.
