rose from titanic is the original hoe bitch knew jack for 2 days which in 1912 equates to like an hour and she’s lying down for nudes and fucking in the back of a strangers car like my girl was nasty i love her
after rewatching Titanic a few days ago, I’ve fallen into a wikipedia wormhole and oh my god the entire Titanic tragedy is a textbook lesson on “how to majorly fuck up repeatedly again reloaded 2.0″
* the crew didn’t know how to properly operate the lifeboats (there weren’t enough lifeboats to begin with, but the Titanic had complied with maritime law regulations at the time) * the crew only went through one drill before sailing out, which involved lowering 2 lifeboats and rowing them around for a bit * about half of the life boats were loaded waaaaay way under capacity (think 20 people in a boat meant for 65) * poor information dissemination - there were crew members who didn’t even know the ship was sinking until more than an hour after the iceberg was hit * Captain Smith effectively shut down emotionally/mentally the second he realised the scope of the disaster and basically left the crew to organise evacuation * he also failed to properly acknowledge iceberg warnings (Titanic received around 5 or 6 warnings throughout the day before the tragedy happened), which, get this, at the time were taken as “advisory” and not as “fuck shit we need to be careful fam” * Titanic was speeding at almost her top possible speed (21 knots - her top speed was 24), in spite of, I repeat, big blocks of ice in the ocean that nobody was apparently scared of *smh* * there was a ship literally 5 miles away that saw Titanic’s deck lights and distress rockets, but her captain didn’t do shit because he wasn’t sure what the rockers meant(wtf boy wtfffff); he didn’t even wake up the wireless radio operator so they could at least radio the ship and see if they were okay * only one or two of the 20 lifeboats launched came back to search for survivors; there were 1500 people in the water and only a couple of boats returned * because of the way the ship was constructed, a lot of 3rd class passengers couldn’t make it on the decks were lifeboats were loaded (very non-coincidentally, first class passengers had no issues getting there)
sure, there was a fair amount of bad luck involved (coldest April in 50 years, that caused a lot of ice to form in that area - Titanic was literally passing through what is now known as Iceberg Alley; the night was clear, the ocean was calm, which made spotting icebergs a lot harder because there were no waves to crash into them; the lookouts had no binoculars???) but shit son, human error played a huge part in this. I know it was a different time, changes were made towards a lot more safety for passengers and it’s very easy for us to judge something that we weren’t a part of, but it’s still shocking to see so many things go wrong at once.
It’s been 84 years, and I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used. The sheets had never been slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams, and it was. It really was. Titanic (1997) dir. James Cameron
