Nigel Irens announces his next record breaking trimaran will be built of steel according to the origami method. A stunned Francis Joyan remarked "I thought we were doing ok with IDEC,I am not sure about this new direction".When asked by reporters if steel was the right choice Irens errupted " Its just better! %$#%^#& dis informers and there ^&%*$$ idiotic campaigns against forward thinking building methods."Ive been wrong all along" he shouted."Carbon, kevlar,E-glass,its all garbage".Irens then started banging his head on the podium screaming steel!,steel, STEEL! before leaping bodily into the crowd of reporters.He was taking to a near by hospital for observation.
