Fact of the Day: Titan Ship

The doomed Titanic ship gets its name from the Titans of Greek myth. They were a race of gods who were overthrown by the Olympians led by Zeus.

    You certainly have a fascination with the Titanic.
    You're not considering an attempt at bringing it up???
    I don't think you can by law anyhow - it is considered a
    grave now under maritine laws.

  4. Overthrown.
    Probably because they sucked at ship design.

  8. I am fascinated by the Titanic disaster, especially as many who drowned were buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I usually found a way to share it with my kiddos in third grade.
