July 10, 2005 – The world’s fastest talking woman, Fran Capo, descended 4 km (2.5 miles) under the Atlantic Ocean to say a speedy prayer for the victims of the RMS Titanic. Capo was sponsored by Internet casino Golden Palace.com. Capo had herself officially ordained for the dive and the US Navy chaplain wrote a special maritime, non-denominational memorial prayer for her to read at the site of the Titanic, something that has never been done. “This has got to be my greatest adventure,” said Capo in a post-dive interview. “I was 2 1/2 miles down in the sea, a place few have gone. I did the first ever prayer down there and I visited one of the most talked about ships of all time.” Fran Capo also conducted the world’s deepest book signing during the same dive.
