  1. According to American Disabilities act (ADA), the exterior and interior doors of building should be accessible for disable person. If any building owner violates the act, civil penalties are applicable. So in every building, this act is maintained strictly. That\’s why door pressure gauge is used to measure the force of opening the door. CRL door pressure gauge is very easy to install and very convenient to use as this is a pocket size device.

    1. But natural selection dictates that those who can't open doors should be left out in the cold for nature to take its course.

  2. Any photos of the crew as my friends dad was a 2nd class steward on her the trip she was sunk he was saved but never well enough to return to sea my friend is still alive at 103 by the way he was also on Carpathia the night she saved the Titanic passengers.

    1. no ashole you friends dad was no on lusitania

    2. dude your fiends dad was not born in the 1910s so he was not on lusitania

    3. if your friends dad was on lusitania he would not been alive taday he would have been a couple hundred years old toady

    4. lusitania had a great interior but titanic was bigger and better than lusitania

    5. sorry for calling you an asshole but you have to know your friends didnt g on titanic or lusitania

    6. hi i love titanic i have alot of books on titanic even books on lusitania

  3. lusitania was sank in 1915 so if your fiends dad went on there he would been over a hundred years old today

  4. I highly recommend reading Erik Larson's fabulous book "Lusitania" The Last Crossing. This author has done a gigantic search work to deliver us a great book in which we live day and sometimes hour by hour this tragic and horrible crime and this from the point of view of several key figures whether British, German or American. I learned a lot from this book. I have been passionate about Lucy's story (rms Lusitania) since the 70s.
    A great thank you for this page and this babulous photographies showing us how wonderfull was Lucy.

  5. I think the Mauretania was far more luxurious looking than both Lusitania and Titanic actually but i think the Lusitania is more gorgeously designed than Titanic but it is bigger than L-tania,that’s for sure! The Titanic I’m finding out really wasn’t all that grand and gorgeous looking at all compared to other ships of the time such as the M-tania, the L-tania etc…There’s just a lot more hype surrounding the Titanic due to it’s tragedy.

  6. our pastor told us at bible study today,that god put the iceberg in front of the titanic, 'cause the ship was full of GAY people

  7. Your pastor’s got some big might too if you’re buying into that.
