    Default 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic

    We're coming up on the 100 years since the Titanic sank on the night of April 14, 1912.

    Wikipedia has a pretty good article on the ship: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Titanic

    Time has a cool gallery of a few photos taken on the Titanic: http://lightbox.time.com/2012/04/04/titanic/#1

    BBC has an interesting myth-busting article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17515305

    And ABC will show a brand-new four-part miniseries on April 14 and 15: http://abc.go.com/shows/titanic/

    I've been following the real time tweets on Twitter. It's been interesting.

    We had the 4-part miniseries on UK TV. It was okay, but we've seen and heard it all before.

    It was reported on our local news last night that they have found the grave of the helmsman Robert Hitchens. He died on a ship off Aberdeen and was buried locally. He died a pauper because no-one would work with him as they regarded him a "jinx".

    A trading card set is being produced in the UK for the anniversary. Some of the premium packs will contain actual relics from the ship itself, pieces of clothing worn by the passengers, etc.

    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    I just read on Yahoo News that some people didn't realize the Titanic was a real event. How is that possible?

    Never underestimate the power of stupidity.
