This statistic proves that human beings are 20 percent stupid on a fundamental, instinctive level. "Titanic" is a colloquial term for the inevitable tragedies that result from the arrogance of man, but a scientifically accurate demonstration of the reason that's true succeeded only in reminding us how fun it is to push the envelope right up against Poseidon's stupid face.
And if you're thinking that nautical technology has rendered most of the Titanic's problems obsolete, then you're only two-thirds right, because it isn't just the icebergs and the lack of lifeboats that kill Jack and Rose -- it's also the White Star Line's cost-cutting. Most of the rivets in the Titanic's hull were made of steel, but some were made from (weaker) wrought iron as a cost-saving exercise. And those rivets were used largely where the hull curved, which is also (incidentally) exactly where Titanic hit that iceberg. The "shearing stress" on the weaker rivets caused them to shoot out like corks from a champagne bottle, hastening the ship's descent.
So, basically, the success of your cruise ship experience is entirely dependent on the company's willingness to compromise their bottom line in the service of safety, which is, haha, adorable.
