An interesting look at fact, fiction, and myth about Titanic. To pique your interest: was Titanic ever really called unsinkable, or did that particular adjective only become popular after its sinking?

A bit like reading someone's graduate thesis, but overall filled with information any Titanic devotee will enjoy.
