Damn you iceberg!

But on a more serious note people should know more about the Wilhelm Gustloff, a cruise ship that was sunk during World War II in which over 9,000 people died. 6 times more than the amount casualties on the Titanic. R.I.P. too all those who died in both of these tragedies.

@[b]LastTrueChamp[/b]: I don't think these days celebrations are due do the casualties the Titanic sinking made. IMO, today we're celebrating that a 100 years ago, the era of "Mankind is Stronger than Nature" was over. The Turn of the Century was an age where humans were capable of digging massive canals (Suez and Panama), go across the highest mountains without a problem, building longer and longer bridges, and finally, building "unsinkable" ships.

The Titanic catastrophe put an end to this situation and showed the whole world that ships were as sinkable as had always been and that humans are just a little part of nature.

@[b]TekindusT[/b]: I agree with you but I just thought it was a good opportunity to shed some light on what should be considered a greater human tragedy as the Titanic is often considered. And I wouldn't really consider these celebrations either, more like a reminder.

I always wonder why there was only 1 iceberg and not more. Though awesome pic that helps remind everyone

9/11 had a smaller loss of casualties than that ship, but it is still more well known because of the circumstances.

The Titanic became famous because it was branded "unsinkable" and it was state of the art for its time. Then went and sank on its maiden voyage. And at the time a great deal of mystery surrounded it, still even today.

iceberg position was the fault[/quote]
It was still on the rigth side; http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/02/Titanic_porting_around.svg

Also, I fixed the brightness problem on the iceberg :)
