R.I.P. Titanic
« on: April 16, 2011, 02:59:39 »

Today is the 99th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Its stern went under at 2:20am. 1,517 souls perished and only 706 survived. May all the ones that died that night rest in peace

They were probably eaten by sharks. They in turn gave birth to baby sharks..So, in a way, they live on..

God, don't start them off, SD.!!

I think the water might be a little cold for sharks at that time of year. Except the toothless variety- who are more likely to want their Rowntree fruit pastilles rather than to eat the passengers.

Frozen meat- uncooked. Urgh.

I expect once a year..
I agree that this fixation on the Titanic seems a bit strange, as there have been worse sea disasters. i.e WWI/WWII
The Titanic sinking may appeal to those who have a dramatic nature. As unfortunate as the collision was, I think the pre-occupation with it is romantic dribble..

Perhaps this site is suitable for those interested..

Titanic has been strong in everyone, but soon it won't after they will get a load of "Oasis Of The Seas", If that ship sinks people will act like Titanic never existed. Sure she freaking huge but let's just hope she stay's afloat.

Modern day cruiseships are built to ALWAYS STAY afloat.  ::)
