Titanic!!! :)

Soo... The Titanic is my favorite movie of all time. And in honor of it being 100yrs. since the Titanic sank... It's being re-released in 3D on April 6, 2012. (The morning the Titanic set sail 100yrs. ago) I. Cannot. Wait! My friend Kaytlinn and I absolutely LOVE The Titanic. Every time we hang out we watch it. We can even speak some of the scenes. And since my birthday is around the time is comes out, that's what we're going to do. If you don't know much about the actual story of the Titanic, I know everything. Like the fact that there were 21 lifeboats, and each life boat could hold about 31 passengers... that left over half of the ships 2228 passengers unable to get off the ship. And most of those boats? They weren't even half as full as they could've been. Or that Molly Brown, a wealthy woman, was the first woman to ever row a boat to safety. Below I have listed some other interesting facts about the Titanic.




Facts:
~Out of the 2228 passengers, only 705 actually lived.
~The Titanic was the first ship to ever contain a heated pool.
~Of the 1517 people that went down with the ship, only 306 of their bodies were recovered.
~Even though all women and children were to get on the life boats before men, more men survived the ship sinking.
~Most survivors were from the first class.
~When the ship sank, it broke in half. One end sunk right away. The other floated around 3 miles away before finally filling up with water and sinking.
~Many think that the reason that the one part of the ship stayed afloat was because many people jumped, and it lightened that side, enough to let it float longer.
