Are they going to go as far as actually hitting an iceberg?

When they do hit an iceberg they'll all clap thinking its part of the reenactment

I guess this is The Titanic 100 thread. So, 25 years ago, this lady, Eva Hart gave an interview about the moment the ship hit and the moment it sank. It's like a link to the past. I also love her cut-glass British accent (specifically her phraseology "it was absolutely ghastly" etc.), you'd struggle to find anyone who speaks like that today:

All free movement of labour between countries with vastly disparate GDP's means, is that the labour gravitates to the country paying the highest relative wage; and it was always ever thus.

Where are they sailing too? The Titanic didn't reach it's destination? Will it be all off mid-Atlantic?

The media will be pissing their pants with excitement 'if' something happens to this boat. It doesn't even matter how small it is, 'Captains tin-opener stops working' will do and it's live coverage on the BBC for the next three days!

It's different this time. It's unsinkable.
The 25 Most Dangerous People In Financial Media

There are some things that men must do in order that they remain as men.

It's not what you know, it's what you can prove in court. Didn't you tell me that once?

It is the duty of all good men to nurture the seed of self-destruction that lies at the core of every evil.

The biggest delusion that humans suffer is to abrogate their powers to others then expect something other than despair.

It's already become a Titanic obsession.

There was a JamCam* documentary on the box last night.

That guy is so obsessed he can tell you what colour underwear anyone on board was wearing at any given moment, and recite individual DNA strands backwards etc.

And this mob? Well, that's the Voyage of the Voyeursitic Vultures, ain't it?

Just come to Cowes in Cowes week. We have hundreds of yachties with just such accents and phraseology. :(
