unsinkable.


the sinking of the titanic is one of the most remarkable cases of "doing it wrong."  how the design of the titanic's watertight compartments made sense to the ship's constructors is beyond me.  these 16 compartments in the bottom of the ship's hull were to hold water in them and keep the ship afloat even if two compartments became completely full.


yet NONE of the compartments were closed off on top.  i remember watching a documentary about the titanic when i was in 4th grade and they said that the titanic's hull was essentially an ice cube tray.  what happens when you start to fill one end of an ice cube tray?  the water spills over and over into each compartment of the tray until all are full.

and then the unsinkable ship sinks.  titanic designers...

Titanic did sink but still have some respect for those who where aboard. Yeah we should get over the fact that it sank but it is a tragic story that will live through human blood till the end of time. I KNOW YOU GUYS WOULD HATE TO BE STUCK IN TITANIC TRAPPED BECAUSE OF THE WATERTIGHT DOORS.Please respect all that tried to fight for there life. They where innocent people.
