    "Nearer My God to Thee" just started going through my head with a mental image of all the cast of Titanic hanging around the staircase...

    A chapter ends in a remarkable story about a ship that no movie can do justice.

    If you become a student of the Titanic disaster -- and there is oodles of stuff to read on the subject -- you won't be disappointed in the endeavor.

    Chilling. It's like that "Final Destination" movie.

    Horrible, tasteless, terrible. And oh Tebow, did that make me laugh.

    My wife is a Titanic Fanatic. She's got books, DVDs and other items. Plus, we've seen the exhibit of the memorabilia twice: in Los Angeles and in Vegas.

    In that, you take a tour of the ship and see all the stuff they've brought up in a setting designed to re-create the ship. You're given a card of a passenger before you start and at the end, you find out if you survived.

    Both times, I went down with the ship. :'( :'( :'(

    A friend of mine took in the tour when it was in Milwaukee... the cards were really interesting.

    Saw that exhibit too, bird. Found it very interesting.

    Did they have the ice berg exhibit, where you could put your hand on the ice to feel exactly how cold it was in the water that night?

    And I think I went down with the ship as well.

    Yeah, they did, Hank, both at the Science Center in downtown LA and in Vegas.

    BF COLD!

    I want to know if she had a bunch of pictures of herself on horses and flying planes on her bedside table.
