Change to chapter 10 of Circumnavigation


Recommended Posts

I've had to make a change to chapter 10, "Launch", and I feel that it's only fair that I report changes to posted chapters (other than typo and spelling fixes).

 

When posted, one of the paragraphs in chapter 10 read;

 

Trevor looked up for a moment, and then grinned and finished opening the gift.

Plus it does have major importance in the plot. Don't want to spoil the story, but you people should reread from chapter 10 with the detail CJ revealed in mind. A completely different lighting on the story, rest assured it'll be worth the time you put in it.

Personally, I don't see this is being significant. People use imprecise statements all the same. Certainly, if I was a sailor and I received an iPod in a waterproof case, I'd probably call it a 'waterproof iPod'.

 

The only reason I can think of for making this change is that Apple has sent C James and 'cease-and-desist' letter, because they're planning on bring out a waterproof iPod in the near future and didn't like the fact that he spilled the beans early.... :wacko:

:lmao:

 

Well, okay, I don't think the iPod is even mentioned between chapter 10 and chapter 39, and it's not plot critical, but it is one of those technical goofs that I try to avoid making. :)

But it could have had an impact... what if Trevor had settled into his beanbag to listen to some tumes, and suddenly his waterproof iPod had vanished, due to there being no such thing. Then, in the confusion caused by the impossible vanishing of his impossible iPod, he didn't notice the tanker bearing down on him.... 0:)

ROFL!!!

 

Good point; it was in the dialog, so it probably could have stood as is...

 

The waterproof cases, BTW, are plastic enclosures for the iPod. I just assumed that they made a model of iPods waterproof, because I know swimmers use them while swimming laps sometimes, but as it turns out, they are just snap-on cases.

 

I found this goof myself... I was reading an account of a solo circumnavigation, and one of the things on the gear list was waterproof cases for iPods. I though hat was weird: why not just use a waterproof iPod? So I googled, and learned that there is no such thing. :*)
