So much for the word - "unsinkable", eh?Pity about the number of life boats.And for God's sake don't think that the movie,the Hollywood version, is based on facts.There is an excellent BBC documentary that wasdone on the whole episode from facts that could beascertained from survivors from departure to the icebergand records of construction, mismanagement, incompetenceand the list goes on. A tragedy that did lead to better safety procedures for ocean liners.B J Hunnicut.
You wouldn't believe how many people I've met that think the two main characters were seriously based on real people
Believe you me, Adam.I would.Could have been any first class young woman and a male from3rd (cattle class.) - makes it more romantic.B J Hunnicut
yes, and among those 178 tons of old ladies who thought young men and boys should die and they should live.....
everyone is motivated by trying to stay alive. I can't blame them
DezmondThe rule of the sea when tragedy strikes is:Women and Children first into the lifeboats.One crew member for each lifeboat.Then males and last are the crew to be put into theboats.In the case of the Titanic some males dressed as women to save themselves. Desperation makes strange "bed fellows".Colin
The story of the Titanic always makes me sad:( Such a tragedy.
Someone from my town actually died on the Titanic
Great excitement for the passengers that turned to tragedy
It's so sad :(
Not a fate any should have to go through
That and the Hindenburg disaster are so so sad.
People forget that the Titanic wasn't all glitz and glamour.
I would never go on a cruise. The titanic might have sunk but these cruise lines have all kinds of problems including legionnaires disease and other kinds of sicknesses, not to mention when the toilets stop working like on a ship last year and the poor people were stuck on the boat for days.
I didn't know that I thought it was filled with wealthy people.
I knew about this, as I have been a fan of the Titanic for decades now! It is sad...and many of the 3rd class passengers were unable to find their way to the upper decks, and by the time they did it was too late, all the lifeboats had left. The lifeboats were also underfilled, because many people actually believed that the ship would not sink or that help would arrive in time, but sadly, it was not to be.
I think many of those poor souls were trapped below deck and didn't make it out until most of the lifeboats were gone, many of them half empty.
About Titanic is a really sad story!
Already know it, I liked to read or watch tv series about Titanik.Really so sad.....
