So Seasick I’m Laughing

The video in this post isn’t funny, because people got hurt, but I’m still laughing like a maniac. I am a bad, bad person.

It’s from a security camera on a Pacific Sun cruise ship hit by big waves. Since the camera is affixed to a wall, the entire view looks as if the floor is completely horizontal.

But furniture, people and other things race by going from stage left to stage right, then stage right to stage left, back and forth, like a tennis ball at the U.S. Open.

This incident happened in 2008, but Liveleaks recently put out the video.

The London Telegraph reported that nobody died aboard the ship as it rocked back and forth, but at least 42 of the 1,700 or so people aboard suffered broken bones, cracked ribs and gashes.

I guess I’m sick watching this sea sickness-inducing video.  I don’t think I want to go on a cruise. Ever.
