0 degrees, 0 minutes & 10 seconds South - Equator
Jan 03, 2009
"Hello. This is your Captain. In a few moments time, we will be crossing the Meridian Parallel or as you know it, The Equator. Due to ocean swells today, you will not be able to see the line. However, you may be able to feel the bump as we travel across. You will also be able to hear the ship whistle being sounded as we travel across".
....Are you laughing yet? ....
Heard over the intercom (spoken officially, and with a dry, British accent)
