I'm so glad you've covered the insurance issue.. Not many people ever do.
It would make a lot more sense over the whole insanity of it all. Especially when you wonder why "Titanic" was sailing at full speed in waters known
to have ice bergs?
It's always made me wonder if it was deliberate in order to get rid of the evidence. When you look at the history of people trying to solve, once and
for all, the damage done to the bow of Titanic, you'll know they are always deeply frustrated by the fact that the damaged area is buried deep in
Some believe there may actually have been a bomb and the bow is bent outwards and was deliberately driven into a berg to cover up the explosion.
And i hate to be the party pooper but 1,517 people died, not the amount you've stated... (you might want to change it )
I've had a bit of a deep interest in the Titanic for many years. To me, it is the prime example of a lesson we must never forget and must learn from.
It stands out as an eternal flame that the rich and powerful are just as fragile as everyone else and that the power they hold is nothing when we're
all in the same boat. How class systems must be abolished. How equality, kindness and humanity must learn to live together.
Being involved in the paranormal field, (as you've posted in the paranormal forum) I and others, have always wondered what may still haunt that
particular area.. There is a popular TV show where ghost hunts were done on WW2 shipwrecks, and engines and voices were heard by the divers..
The Titanic is in the hearts and minds of many a nation, so perhaps the spirits of the past still walk the wooden decks of this incredible, mysterious
piece of history.
ETA; Just been checking the number of those who died As even the number I quoted did not feel right to what I remembered. According to the internet,
the actual number varies from around 1513 to 1523.. Why the discrepancy after all this time is anyone's guess.
