  1. New Study Shows “Exceptional” And Increasing Trend Caused Sinking Of Titanic

    This relates to my own paper, How many people can fit on a door: more than one, you lunkheads.

    A new paper published today in Significance says that human hubris may not be as wholly responsible for the Titanic disaster as previously thought--and no, that doesn't mean an alien time traveler is to blame. Probably.

  3. Room for One More? Mythbusters Prove Leonardo DiCaprio Could Fit On the Raft In Titanic

    The ending of the movie Titanic has been a cinematic bone of contention for the ages. Relationships have been shattered and children disowned as a result of the senseless bickering between the two camps --  folks who take Cameron at his word that the wardrobe door could not have preserved the lives of both star-crossed lovers, and other people (yours truly included) who have always believed that there was pretty clearly room for two people, and the whole ending was a piece of idiocy that ruined an otherwise excellent film. Thanks to the Mythbusters crew, we can now shorten the title of the second camp -- you can just refer to us as "the people who were right." Want proof that both Jack and Rose could have lived to see another day, bet married, and probably grow sick of one another in due time? Let's go to the tape.

  4. Science Beats James Cameron: Titanic’s Death Scene Officially Mythbusted

    and let it be known

    Annoyed movie-goers (and director James Cameron) have argued this one for years but we can finally put it to rest. The Mythbusters crew (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman) tried to figure out if Titanic's Rose and Jack could both have survived. Cameron may think he had the last word but I think that's best left to this guy. (via MTV) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  5. James Cameron Sinks Our Ship (Or, At Least, Our AU)

    I Guess I Can't Argue With That

    James Cameron doesn't care what you think. It's one of the many privileges of having made billions of dollars. But even mega movie tyrants can get sick of myths that float around the internet. Especially if they have to do with Titanic. In response to the long-standing theory explored by a Reddit user that Jack could have easily fit onto that door with Rose (don't pretend like you don't know what we're talking about), Cameron has gone on the record stating that it's not a question of space, but a question of buoyancy.

  6. Special Effects and the Art of Having Your Brain Fooled

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    For those of us who love the fantastical in our movies, special effects are of crucial importance. Even if a movie's genre doesn't fall within the sci-fi or fantasy arena, there's always room for a little trickery of the senses. Special effects mastro Rob Legato does this for a living, and he recently gave a TED Talk about the ways in which he manipulates what people notice versus what they see when creating the visual effects in movies like Apollo 13, Titanic, and Hugo.

  7. Take a Look at Some Awesome Stuntwomen From Throughout the Years

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    There are a lot of people in the entertainment industry who don't get the recognition they deserve: CGI actors, crafts services, janitors, third assistant directors, the list goes on and on. On that list, alongside all the script supervisors but put in vastly more physical danger are the stuntpeople. They may not get to make the speeches at the Golden Globes, but we see the efforts of their work in every action and superhero movie and TV show we watch, and in plenty of other places as well. Flavorwire put together a great (and thorough) slideshow of actor and their stunt doubles, but let's take a look at some of the ladies behind our favorite ladies:

  8. Billionaire Plans to Build a Titanic Replica, Don’t Tell Him It’s Been Done

    Australian billionaire Clive Palmer made his money in mining and is now looking to come out of the ground and head to the open seas by building an exact replica of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic. Despite this exact scenario being the underlying folly in numerous works of fiction, it completely ignores the fact that the Titanic already had two sequels: Its sister ships Olympic and Britannic.

  9. Things We Saw Today: A Man Wearing A TARDIS Suit

    Things We Saw Today

    We've seen our fair share of women donning TARDIS dresses but I think this is the first time I've seen a man dressed up as a fancy dress TARDIS. Well, it happened this weekend at C2E2 in Chicago. (via Kate Kotler)

  10. The Amazing Story Of Titanic Survivor, The Countess of Rothes

    Today in Boobs

    The 1ooth anniversary of the RMS Titanic sinking is coming up this Sunday. The stories that come out of the disaster are probably too numerous to count but there's one in particular that caught our eye today. It's the story of Lucy Noël Martha Leslie, The Countess of Rothes. She was one of the wealthiest passengers on the ship and author Elizabeth Kaye tells her story in the book Lifeboat No.8 (one of the first boats to leave the Titanic) in which she turns into an unlikely savior.
