some school did that very thing: laid people end to end like that. I'd hate me, too, if I were them.

That diagram was designed by anti-slavery campaigners to illustrate the appalling conditions. The Brookes ship was built to carry something like 400 people, but was actually carrying abotu 600. If you look at the captions on the diagram they underline words like 'under' to increase the effect.

Instead of tut-tutting over historical inequities, I'd rather see people get passionate about ending slavery for once and for all.

Not a humorous subject at all, but does anyone else see the similarity to a 747? With the exception of being able to lie down and the food service, of course.
