If You Were On The Titanic...

OK, after just watching the movie "Titanic" (1997), I was left thinking what I would do if I was a passenger on the actual Titanic with these circumstances:

a) I was a male
b) I had a life-jacket
c) I was a lower-class citizen
d) I was capable of surviving until the boat was completely sub-merged (ie I could hold on to a railing or something)
e) I did not have my own personal helicopter on the Titanic helipad which I could pilot myself!
f) I did not have my C172 on the Titanic runway!

What would I do? I'd put on a wig of some sort and steal one of the ladies dresses so I could qualify as a woman and hop right on one of them life-boats! Cruel, but under those circumstances, it only seems appropriate!

Your plan?

Cheers,

I've always wondered, given the time that they had, why some of them didn't build a raft out of some of the furniture.

Maybe I've been watching too much MythBusters.

I would try my damndest to get on one of those lifeboats.

Being a 20 year old male that would make me pretty low on the "save their ass" list.

Press up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right B, A start for 30 more lives,

Contra (Sega Genesis)

Or

007 373 5963 on Mike Tyson's punchout on Nintendo and knock out that little IceBerg.

I'm just kidding, I would borrow a pair of stockings from KROC and board a boat.

Nope, it was B A start, if you were doing 2 players it was B A select start.

If I were on the Titanic ... I probably would join a group of men and help each other, doing what I needed to do and doing what others need. Very tough situation. Hard to imagine if I were on the Titanic.

You obviously are ignorant to the great deal of credit was given to those musicians led by Wallace Hartley (and still to this day) who were still playing right up until about 2:18 a.m.

Their presence on the Titanic's playing was credited by almost every survivor's account, and subsequently the U.S. Inquiry, and the UK Inquiry, as having kept all the passengers on board "calm and reserved." Had they had not been playing, it is feared that a massive panic would have ensued and the disaster would have had far less survivors.
