Ah, the elitist mentality that we are invincible sank the Titanic. The iceberg incident is not likely to reoccur due to global warming. But, that elitist mentality of invincibility that caused the tragedy is the same thinking that puts us in the same boat environmentally at this time. One has to wonder if that same mindset will sink our environmental boat in the not to distant future. Are we smart enough to avert tragedy this time around?

We do not have a say in it, its the Chinese. Now if the Titanic is built to the same quality as the other tat we get from them, I doubt it will make it past Mr Wong Tonks fish and chip shop on the harbour.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

God Himself could not sink this ship

That being said would a coal powered ship be allowed to sail these days ? I mean with all the EPA stuff ?

If it has enough lifeboats it wont be a true replica

Which no one, least of all the White Star Line or Harland & Wolff, ever did actually say.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I am sure to some he sank the last one, surely it was him/her/it who made the iceberg.

I remember when the tsunami hit Thailand and many of the people were saying it was god who made it happen.

Unfortunately it is still used by some as a way to explain away disasters... Blame it on the one you worship.

ıt cannot be the same vessel..

Internatıonal Maritime Rules are changed a lot of times,safety rules,construction rules,communication equipment etc must be applied.

Personally I'm looking forward to buying a ticket for 3rd class. I've been thinking that if she does go down I'll run to the kitchens, cover myself in dripping (cooked fat) to insulate myself. Then jump on the nearest floating fat person whil" blowing my whistle to attract attention. " I wonder if that would gave saved anyone back then?

i'm off to the arctic to start work on a replica iceberg....
So your going to sculpt exactly the same iceberg?Good luck with that!Because there's a certain lack of availability.You also need to go off the original photograph.But you can't exactly see if it's before or after when it struck the Titanic.Let's hope for your benefit it's before.Because I would hate for you to figure out where the chipped ice falls into place.However you could always teleport the original iceberg into the 21st Century.But if you did that there won't be a tragedy in 1912 and no Chinese guy to replicate it.Then you are left with an iceberg going for a song.Besides it if wasn't for the Titanic Dirk Pitt wouldn't have made his name.But what type of sick person would do it anyway?
