It is amazing how some people think that they are safe pn these big huge ships, even when the ship ways a ton.It's actually pretty amazing how the Titanic stayed up as long as it did on the water.

the cold mirage was actually the reason why the crew didn't see the part of the iceberg that caused damage to it.. that's when everything else went wrong..
