Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

3 of them were in a lift (elevator) which plunged into the sea.

Awful way to go.

Smeg, not good.
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
