    I didn't say it doesn't happen... Titanic hit an iceberg(still stupid), this boat basically tried to fit in a spot where an F150 would barely fit.

    Look at the boat, and whatever that thing is parallel to it. When the boat impacts, they don't move at all. There's just some fancy, edited in smoke.

    The boat on the left actually does move... look at the angle it is tilted at after the boat tries to dock and runs in to it.

    You would be amazed at the stupidity on the 'high seas'. I have seen tiny canoes with outboard motors cutting off aircraft carriers. Large ships take forever to turn and even longer to stop. The idiot that you saw blowing through a stop sign because he was talking on his phone is the same idiot that drives ships too.

    Someone already beat me to it. They run those ships aground on purpose in India to dismantle them for scrap metal. They do it in India because labor is dirt cheap and ship breaking is highly toxic and there is alot of pollution involved. India doesnt have OSHA and the EPA and other protective agencies to fine these companies when they spill oil, fuel, mercury, acid, and flammable gases into the water and onto the beach. Explosive gas vapors explode and kill torch cutters all the time and untrained workers die in confined spaces all the time.

    Ship breaking in India is big business. I heard a cargo ship propeller alone can sell for $30,000?

    Hey its a poor country and this is considered a good job there.

    To break a ship in America would cost almost as much to dismantle it as it does to build it just because of the labor, equipment, safety precautions and disposal of chemicals.
