    This year marks the 100 year (anniversary) of the Titantic sinking.......April 15, 1912 it went down.
    The new National Geographic Magazine has devoted most of the April issue to the Titantic and some new photos were released, showing the ship resting at the bottom of the ocean.
    They have begun bringing up larger portions of the ship.......they have previously brought up smaller items, chairs and dishes, which are on display in some museum.
    Don't you think they should just have left the ship alone??
    I mean...sure, it would be interesting to see the big portions they bring up....but maybe it should have remained buried in the ocean...so many lost their lives.

    Just a slight aside, but I wonder how many of your (not you specifically, Dabs) ancestors travelled to America on White Star Lines (Titanic's owner)? They were, afterall, one of the first trans-Atlantic shipping companies to offer less expensive accomodation for 3rd class passengers.

    Will they see the iceberg in time in 3D?

    I wish they would leave the wreckage alone rather than turn it into a carnival attraction

    I do not know ~LoL~

    I have seen the movie many times....but I don't plan on going to the theater and watching it in 3D.
    They say it's supposed to make you feel "like you were experiencing it"........fuck that!
    I don't know how to swim....so I'm thinking when the boat starts to go under and all that water comes crashing down and around.....I would feel a bit panicky!

    What's the sense of preserving a 100 year old wreck at the bottom of the ocean? The human remains are long gone.

    Quite frankly, I'm sick of all the Titanic crap.

    No one who was on that tub is still alive so let's put it behind us already.

    Does anyone really care about this shit?
