amazingtitanicpics1The RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton, England, back in 1912. The first four days, the voyage was going just great, the best time many of the passengers have ever had, but all of that came to an abrupt end on the 14th of April. On the night of April 14, 1912, at 11:40 pm, the ship was traveling over 20 miles an hour, and came too close to an iceberg. The iceberg scrapped against the side of the Titanic, which caused the rivets to be sheared off, and the hull plates to separate enough to cause water to come gushing in. By 2:20 am, the Titanic was gone to the bottom of the ocean, and there were 705 stunned and traumatized survivors who would have an incredible story to tell the world when they got to New York City.  Ever since 1912, the world has had Titanic fever, and even now 105 years later, there are more shocking facts about it that the world is interested in knowing. Here are some shocking facts about the world’s most famous ship disaster. [click to continue…]

hansen_cp2When the greatest ship in the world, the RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton, England, on April 10, 1912, there were 2,228 people on board her heading to New York City. The people from all three classes, that lined her fancy decks, had no idea they were sailing into history.  Four days into Titanic‘s maiden voyage, the ship was travelling through ice-filled waters, accidentally brushed against an iceberg, which caused catastrophic damage.  Designer Thomas Andrews went to the bridge shortly after the collision with the iceberg, and his news was the worst that Captain EJ Smith could have possibly imagined, which was that his brand new ship was going to sink to the bottom of the North Atlantic.  Captain Smith then had the task of taking over 2000 people and loading them into boats that only held over 1000. Smith knew that not everyone would survive this terrible disaster, and out of the 2228, only 705 would live to see New York City. One such lucky survivor was a native Wisconsinite named Jennie Hanson, and this was not the first time she had survive a terrible disaster. [click to continue…]

AlfonsBack in 1912, when the RMS Titanic sank beneath the frigid waters of the North Atlanta, the world was in a huge state of shock. The Titanic had made headlines because it was considered the biggest ship in the world, and it had been dubbed unsinkable by the world press. While on its fourth day out at sea, the Titanic sailed into iceberg infested waters, and without taking the warnings seriously, the ship side swiped an iceberg. Over the course of the night two hours and forty minutes, the water slowly came into the ship, and the passengers began filling up the 20 lifeboats. Despite the fact the ship was sinking, not everyone believed it, and the first lifeboats were launched with barely anyone in them. By the time the ship sank, there were only 705 people in the lifeboats, and one of them was a man named Alfons Simonius-Blumer, who wrote a letter that went up for auction about his time on the RMS Titanic[click to continue…]

titanic-new-movie-soundtrackThe year 2017 will mark the 20th anniversary of the famous movie, Titanic. Released on December 19, 1997, the movie would go on to gross over one billion dollars, and stay at the number one positions for a total of 15 weeks, and to this day, that record remains intact. Up until Avatar was released in 2009, Titanic was the number one grossing movie of all time, and even now, 20 years later, it is still loved.

Here is some proof that Jack might not have been real at all. [click to continue…]
