They must be awfully young......:lol:
Ahem. One doesn't need to have been alive when the Titanic sank to know about it. :D

I was probably 10 years old when I learned about the Titanic. Do you think they are younger than that?

OMG!

Are all these people living under a ROCK?

Probably. That, and they were all asleep during history class :giggle:

When I was in middle school, we did an entire one month unit on the Titanic, including learning the history of the Titanic, as well as watching the movie. I've been told by some friends who go to other schools that they did the same. Where were these people in school?!? Wait, I know...

Well, I was thinking that it was so long ago that they don't teach about it anymore.....I think they do but I don't know how widespread it is....

I don't know if I heard about the Titanic at school. :dunno: I think I first saw the b&w movie A Night to Remember on TV, and my mom told me that it was a true story. Then, I read more about it for myself (pre-Google days, heh, heh).

Hey! It happened a long time ago for me, too!

I'm old but I'm not old enough that I was standing at the pier waiting for the Titanic to arrive. :lol:

Plenty of more interesting events in recent history to study.

I learned about it when I was 7, by watching that movie with my father.
