Aghh! Hit the damn iceberg and get it over with!
(Excerpt) Read more at latimesblogs.latimes.com ...
It is worth it to see that idiot Jack die over and over.
But now that you mention it, it would be hilarious to do a version where it survives but then crashes into the Carpathia (or something like that)...
No way will I open it. We use the LAT to line the bottom of our garbage bags. In this version, the Titanic doesn’t hit any iceberg due to glow-bull warming..they all melted. (s/)
I like this version...
Jaime Brockett - Legend of the USS Titanic
* What was the last thing anyone said on the Titanic? ‘I know I ordered ice but this is ridiculous!’
* What sort of cake do they have for desert on the Titanic? Upside-down cake!
* What goes down well with ice? The Titanic!
* What do you get if you cross the Atlantic Ocean with the Titanic? About halfway!
* The chief designer of the Titanic had a lisp. That’s unthinkable!
* On the Titanic the captain calls a meeting of his officers:
‘I have some good news and some bad news. Which do you want to hear first?’
‘The good news’, replies an officer.
‘We’ll get eleven Oscars.’
* Titanic was about to sink.
Passenger: How far are we from land?
Captain: Two miles...
Passenger: which direction?
* So there were some good things that came out of the Titanic sinking:
According to the news, the last survivor was fond of saying: ‘If it hadn’t been for the ship going down, I’d be an American’.
*Sign seen in an office: The difference between this place and the Titanic is.... they had a band!
*Management consultant to crewmember -
Consultant: To confirm, are we short of lifebelts or lifeboats?
Crewmember: Both, Sir.
Consultant. Excellent, we’ve made savings across the board.
*Heard when the ship went down...
So this isn’t New York?
It’s still better than Carnival!
So has the all-night buffet been canceled?
How big a carry on can I take on the lifeboat?
Do you mind if I hold your baby for a minute?
This is definitely the last time I book a cheap repositioning cruise!
Ah, so this is what they mean by ‘cruise to nowhere’.
We can’t afford to stop here long. I’ve got a plane to catch in New York.
Nobody reads my tweets, but if we get one of the celebrities on board to twitter this, it’ll hit the news!
Ooh my wife’s fallen overboard. Hold the lifeboat. I’ve got to update my facebook status.
I’lll read it as long as they don’t play that horrific song sung by that psycho French Canadian chick with the flat face. Santorum dropping out is enough torture for one day.
Some people just aren’t happy unless they are depressed and miserable. This is their kind of week.
I can’t get enough of it. Two hours on PBS this evening was just a warmup.
James Cameron’s program is interesting BUT you can tell he’s there to be smug and Mr. Know-it-all in front of the experts he gathered. If you notice, he pretty much does all of the talking, the rest of it is edited for the guys to nod or say, “I agree.”
Agreed. Soon it will be “Titanic IIID meets Freddie Krueger” or “The Titanic Chainsaw Massacre” or “Titanic Saw IV”
The sinking of HMS Titanic has always been on my curiosity list, just like the assassination of JFK and the largest volcanic eruptions ever.
I need things that exercise my brain to survive and large television shows help message that need!
LOL! Friggin’ HILARIOUS. ALL ‘Team Obama’ members no doubt. Are those texts real? Get it?
Not surprised. There are some young 20 something women in my office who have no clue who Mao or Stalin were.
I am so tired of hearing about the Titanic... plus I am thinking this LA Times thing should probably sink like the ship
I bought the movie for my gf when it came out.
Neh-ver seen it.
The Titanic never sank. That’s just what they want you to believe. Actually it was faked on a Hollywood set.

DW Griffith did it. Shhhhhhh
My 10 year old son has caught the Titanic bug. Asked for a Titanic model this last Christmas, and must have asked me a thousand questions about the ship. He also has drawn some pretty impressive pictures of it and built it with Legos.
I got a better idea. Get U-571 to torpedo it coming out of Southampton docks.
I have built several models over the years, my last one was a couple of years ago and I have a huge kit up on my shelf, massive big model kit with all the fine photo etch railing details.
I might just make a diorama with it bow down and the stern in the air on a waterline display,maybe passengers in the water, lights flickering, funnel falling over. I have seen modelers who have done the two part smashed wreck on the ocean floor, totally creepy. Right down to the debris field.
Here- this might make it better:
A friend of mine was thinking about assembling a Titanic model, cutting it so it was stern-up at an angle. We went to a model shop, inquired about such a model and were told “I think that line has gone down...”
Ditto. Exactly what I was thinking. That popinjay reminded me of being at work.
Yes, kewl graphics though.
the real tragedy is that the media is drowning in cameron’s stupid fictional love sotry, adn ignoring the much more poignant, factual “Night to Remember” (Walter Lord). when they do mention NTR, they usually disparge it.
all that dicaprio crap takes away from the real tragedy, denegrates it, and innures us into a ‘fiction as fact’ mentality. you know? fake but accurate.
That was excellent!
