Shipwreck ettiquette – Titanic vs. Lusitania: Which ship had the more polite men?

by Thor on Mar. 02nd, 2010

We just said bon voyage to the Titanic exhibit here at the Science Museum of Minnesota, but I came across this very interesting article about male behavior patterns when ships are sinking. Researchers have analyzed the behaviors of men on board Titanic (which sank in about three hours) and men on board Lusitania (which sank in 18 minutes). Which ship saw more "gentlemanly" behavior? Think about it and then read the results of the research findings right here.

totally agree... though I guess that if one of them was more polite, they would think more about what others thought instead of being so prideful.
