The North Atlantic Ocean. Who could forget that fateful morning of April 15, 1912 as the Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg only two hours earlier? One of the greatest maritime disasters of all time shocked the world at the beginning of the 20th century and is lingering still in our collective memory.
The unsinkable ship led to the loss of approximately 1,500 human lives while 750 individuals were rescued from the icy waters of the Atlantic, causing the world to question why lifeboats were not filled to capacity, why the speed of the ship was not adjusted despite repeated warnings, and why class discrimination played a role in the actual evacuation of the sinking ship.
While there is no definitive answer to these questions, one thing we do know for sure. Careful studies and accurate mathematic measurements have proven that the wooden piece of debris holding heroine Rose DeWitt Bukater was in fact big enough to support two individuals. This information leads investigators to believe that the only reason her love-interest and pastime portrait artist, Jack Dawson did not receive permission to climb onto the floating raft, was to increase the already overpowering emotional tension of the unrolling event.
“We are shocked and saddened by the preventable loss of Jack’s life.”, the NYPD issued a statement. “Of course, we have started an investigation in the suspicious death of Mr. Dawson and will question our main suspect, James Cameron, later this afternoon. He better remember exactly what happened during that calamitous night. At this point we’re all wondering if he’ll sink or swim.”
