    Reminds me of a documentary from Britain, concerning the evidence against some accused terrorists. The filmmakers duplicated the scene before the arrest, when the accused were playing cards in a pub. You drink your drinks, you handle the cards, and then they test your hands for residue. Alcohol dissolves some of the varnish on the paper playing cards, it gets on your hands, and "Congratulations, you're a bomber!"

    What kind of sick sprinkler guy would take sprinkler parts on a cruise ship. Is work that tough these days?

    As large as those ships are, I wouldnt be surprised if they needed an irrigator on board.

    Of course they don't match... :rolleyes:

    I wasn't saying it was the same incident, I was just using the story to illustrate the point that it was possible.... because as far as I know cruise ships do in fact have fire sprinklers, but don't normally require irrigation.... :laugh:
