In reality, the given capacity was quite nominal, as filling the boats to their indicated capacity would have required some passengers to stand. This did in fact happen to some of the last boats to leave Titanic ; at the subsequent British enquiry, Titanic ' s Second Officer Charles Lightoller testified that the nominal capacity could only have applied "in absolutely smooth water, under the most favourable conditions." The proper capacity would have been more like 40 people per boat under typical conditions.  Interestingly, few officers and crew were aware that steel beam reinforcements had been added to the keels of the boats to prevent buckling in the davits under a full load.
Some punks wear tight "drainpipe" jeans, plaid/tartan trousers, kilts or skirts, T-shirts , leather jackets (which are often decorated with painted band logos, pins and buttons, and metal studs or spikes), and footwear such as Converse sneakers, skate shoes , brothel creepers , or Dr. Martens boots. Some early punks occasionally wore clothes displaying a Nazi swastika for shock value, but most contemporary punks are staunchly anti-racist and are more likely to wear a crossed-out swastika symbol than a pro-Nazi symbol. Some punks cut their hair into Mohawks or other dramatic shapes, style it to stand in spikes, and color it with vibrant, unnatural hues. Some punk women wear tight jeans, leather jackets, spiked heels or spiked leather boots, heavy studded leather belts, and piercings.
Reviewers who take the trouble to read Gabaldon’s whole series before venturing to offer opinions about it, will recognize characters who, at one time or another, fall into the Kinsey categories that include episodes of homosexual along with heterosexual experience: the Duke (Randall’s rumor that he is married); the early homosexual bond between Black Jack Randall and his brother Alexander, both of whom later marry; Jamie himself (who horrified but nevertheless aroused when raped by Jack Randall); Murtagh (who is singularly devoted to Jamie); Rupert, the widower (who on his deathbed acknowledges his platonic love for Dougal); the lovers Lord John Grey and his step-brother; Lord John Grey’s other lovers (he’s marries women twice, and one is Claire!); the early homosexual experiences of Jamie’s adopted son, Fergus (born and raised in a Paris brothel), who eventually marries; and the whole clan structure of the Highlands, rife with the type of idealized homosexuality that characterizes accepted forms of male-bonding worldwide.
