Today at 02:21:46 AMMajora: I'd say: Grab a life jacket, consume a healthy amount of alcohol just in case, scout up and down Boat Decks A and B and simply approach the officer running each lifeboat and politely ask if there's room for you to board. If that doesn't work, throw chairs, tables, and other objects over the side for yourself and others to cling to in the water. Try to jump into a lowering lifeboat, if the opportunity presents itself. They wouldn't turn you away once you're in
Today at 02:07:52 AMFox: And there's another question: If you were a guy, what would be the best way to save yourslef. Perhaps jump off the ship to try to get in one of those life boats or something? What would your rate of survival been then? (If lower than 100%, what would be recommended to increase that number? Ex Grab a life jacket or something that can work as a temporary raft.)
Today at 01:55:00 AMFox: women/children*
Today at 01:54:42 AMFox: I'm sure that separating families, and the likiness that woman may have felt uneasy about being "lowered" from the ship into a life boat... might not have helped either.
Today at 01:44:37 AMLord Squirtle: There we go, a new patch for anyone who is at all interested in checking it out.
Today at 01:40:53 AMLord Squirtle: I see, that's some interesting stuff.
Today at 01:34:38 AMMajora: Having more lifeboats wouldn't have helped as much as many would think. The system they used to lower lifeboats would have also had to be updated, as it just took too much time to lower each one
Today at 01:31:39 AMMajora: That argument that the ship didn't have enough lifeboats is a little unfounded, as the ship went down way too quickly for the crew to have filled the number of lifeboats they already had. The system they used was a little funky, they had to hand-lower the boats, cutting ropes manually and all that
Today at 01:30:03 AMMajora: No one had time to walk up to each passenger and ask 'Excuse me ma'am, may I ask what class you belong to?"
Today at 01:29:06 AMMajora: Yep, the class warfare thing was basically conceived for the James Cameron movie for the drama of it. Mathematically, there wouldn't have been enough time to load all passengers into the few lifeboats the ship did have. No distinction was made regarding ticket classes when loading the boats. It was basically crewmen scouting back and forth across the deck and placing women and children in the boats.
Today at 01:23:23 AMFox: (Actually, after looking at something, I kind of doubt the class thing was a big enough variable to even mention. -- So pretty much the women and children thing being priority is enough.)
Today at 12:41:43 AMFox: Ofcourse, oing first class to start with gives you a good survival rate... an it's likely that children and women were priority over men.
Yesterday at 10:56:11 PMLord Squirtle: Wooh, finally finished reanimating the Lift utility. Also yeah, I imagine it's far less stressful to be ignorant of the ongoing crisis; whether you are developed or otherwise.
Yesterday at 06:07:04 PMMajora: That's definitely the way to be. If you're going to be on the Titanic, you may as well be on it as an as of yet unborn child with your mother. All she has to do is go for a strut along the Boat Deck at any time during the first hour and a half, she's getting tossed into a lifeboat at some point.
Yesterday at 02:42:18 PMFox: (The girl is also special because she was the youngest on board at the time... and from what I read, she had no mmeory of the Titanic--her mother told her about it.)
Yesterday at 02:39:56 PMFox: @1: Seeing as the last survivor was a woman, then that makes Sala a girl. Interesting enough.
Yesterday at 12:27:43 PMMaxiPower: It was built in Belfast, N.Ireland, and its maiden voyage was from Southhampton, England, so did it just magically teleport across the Irish Sea to England then?
Yesterday at 12:26:38 PMMaxiPower: quick trivia, they say the titanic sank on maiden voyage... but
Yesterday at 12:26:08 PMMaxiPower: plottwist, Sala is actually the ghost of the last survivor of the titanic...
Yesterday at 10:36:59 AMFox: Interesting thought: The last survivor of the Titanic died the same month I joined GSHC Classic (May 2009)
