    It was either be a coward that tries to steal a child’s seat on a lifeboat, or sit around and try to put off drowning for an extra hour. Might as well spend that hour doing what you love. That one baker also had the right idea and spent his time getting wasted.

      You didn't even need a boat seat to survive, you literally just had to find anything you could float on top of until help arrived

        Float on top in icy water? People on lifeboats were protected by the elements they're conical shaped not just flat rafts imagine things like wind chill or even a small wave would be lethal

        Even in the movie, Rose is literally the only person who miraculously survived by floating on random debris. And she is a fictional character who that scenario was made up for just to add extra drama. In real life, nobody got out by floating on a door tip the Carpathia got there. the only survivors were people who got onto boats, and everyone that tried crawl onto random floating shit just froze and died. And it’s not because they were stupid and doing it wrong, it’s because it was a wildly impractical thing to do that was never gonna be likely to work.

        Frick, even in the movie, Rose floats on the door raft for a little while, but is still pulled into a life boat before the Carpathia arrives.

          With hindsight though, surely wrapping up warm in layers and finding a floating wardrobe or something would have increased your odds massively

    It's interesting learning that the Titanic really just got ridiculously unlucky and the way it's presented as a cautionary tale of man's foolish hubris is pretty unfair to its crew and makers.

      The unluckiness was vital in making the story sensational enough to get people to pay attention to some honestly unsafe practices that really did need improvement. It was a wakeup call that no craft is invulnerable, that the one in a million chance is still a chance, and that that is why you want to be better safe than sorry and still need to stock enough life boats.

      The people who owned the Titanic sent bills to the crew’s families trying to charge them for the uniforms they died in. They deserve zero sympathy.

      That’s a misconception. The captain is allowed to survive- he’s just supposed to be the last person to get saved, after every one else is safe. I’m not sure where exactly in the hierarchy the band falls, but they are supposed to get rescued sometime after all the passengers and before the captain.

          Captain going down with the ship is a sorta semi-tradition of the UK nobody else really has the noble mentality to do such a thing. On top of that we take the piss out of foreign inquiries and perform casual racism in them.

    If the ship sinks, the rules of maritime law state that the captain has to sink as low as the ship. The law states that it is the required duty of the captain to delegate which crew members stay on the ship, being required to sink in specified increments with the ship, and which crew members are allowed to disembark during a partial or full sinking event. It could be the case that the string band had a full sinking order delegated to them by the captain, or, more likely, that the band had a partial sinking order delegated upon them but its members understood that the water was too cold and there were too few lifeboats to allow them to survive in any case.

      To add to this, several captains have had their families retroactively court martialed (a child a young as six can, and must stand in their parent’s place as an honorary captain in such circumstances) for having their bloated corpse break free of the wreckage and float up to the surface.

      It’s a pretty gruesome and sad affair when the weeping child is killed presented with said corpse, looking like a party balloon version of their deceased parent in the courtroom, before they (the child) are dragged off the brig, but it has to happen. The sea is a harsh mistress.

      This is why nowadays most captains come equipped with a special set of restraints to fix themselves to their chair, when the inevitable happens. After all, sooner or later, all ships do sink. It’s simply inevitable, another harsh law of the cruel, cruel sea.

              a few people did try, and they were shot, as ive repeated a half dozen times ITT. everything from the iceberg to the ship sinking happened in about 2 hours around midnight. many people were sleeping. many more were drunk and/or tired. many people never even made it above deck to figure out what happened. there was no time for a strangers (affluent limp wristed ones at that) to organize a coordinated mutiny. even if they had, it wouldn't have done them any good because there weren't enough lifeboats.

                10 guys could easily overpower a lone officer, even if the officer was armed. And many of the lifeboats that day were launched under full capacity. Even if they weren’t, you could just do as

                you can argue with reality all day man but people don't work like that. it takes time and consensus to organize actions like that and it's been proven hundreds or even thousands of times now that people will NOT instantaneously swoop into synchronized action like special forces soldiers in extreme situations. 9/11 was a prominent recent example but it's a constant of human nature.

      maybe in news papers and books written on the subject but let's be real: it was 1912. there was no internet and no social security numbers. nobody was ID'ing these guys on the street and you could just casually start living under a different name back then without having to go through legal channels. if i were on that boat and in a position to leave, i absolutely would have as well, in a heartbeat with no hesitation.

      Lol get fricked poorgay. Captain here, shit was tight. We had a 24/7 rotation of fresh pussy, nonstop cigs, even some drugs(back in those days even shit from the street hit harder). We let the boring frickers from White Star do all the work while we got laid and fricked around on top deck all day. Imagine those wagies horrified looks as they died for less than $3 an hour, lol. That's why I did it. Yes-that's right: I did it! I knew about the icerberg. I could see it plain as day, something that big you don't just miss. I tried to ram that b***h dead on but was so high I couldn't gauge it right and scraped along. Tried to kill as many Irishmen and wagies as I could, which I guess worked out since it flooded the 3rd class compartments first. Shame it gave them time to flee though. They all flocked to the deck expecting us to do something but we were so blown out we started to fire our flares and fireworks and a mass orgy started. The band was playing You Shook Me All Nigbt Long by AC/DC and people just started jumping into the water on their own as we were sinking. I saw on of the wagies lowering boats but the music was so loud I couldn't do anything to stop them. I was getting a BJ while wildly spinning the wheel at this point(think it was a girl) so I didn't care. Shit was so wild by this point you had a conga line of fricking going around the deck stopping people from getting off(but they still got off, trust me). Eventually the water was getting higher though so I called in a favor with the Lizards running the soon to be established Federal Reserve to beam me out. And to this day I'll never forget the look on their eyes as I floated into the sky, cumming onto their poor Irish faces as I ascended.

    The Titanic thing? I don't buy it. I mean think about it for a minute:

    There was this great big iceberg, large enough to punch a hole in the shop and split it in half (check footage of the wreck of you don't believe me, it is in two halfs), right? I

    If the iceberg were large enough to do that to a shop made of steel (the hardest material known to man) then it must have been many times the size of the ship.

    If it was that big why didn't the people on the ship all just jump into the iceberg?

    There would have been more than enough room for everyone, even the Irish in steerage.

    They could have waited there for redeye eating penguins and stuff and nobody would have died.

    That they didn't proves that there was no iceberg to begin with.

    QED.
