I got into a fight with my friend the other day because she swears up and down that Captain Smith made it off the ship alive. Literally nothing I can say or do will convince her otherwise. Sigh.

Is this quiz going to be republished in 3D?

Great job on this quiz Hejman!

both strauses didnt survive they died both lying on a bed while the water flooded.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 15:22 GMT
The June 1997 Life Magazine titled "Titanic Fever" mentions that at least one of Titanic's crew members thought he saw Captain Smith clinging to a lifeboat. But the crew member was probably mistaken. Captain Smith more than likely went down with the ship.

@L0uie313 While the 1997 film depicts them lying on a bed, they were actually last seen sitting quietly on deckchairs together. It seems most likely that they were swept off the deck like that.

Change architecht to architect please.

Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon... now you're just making things up!

If anyone wonders why the sinking of the Titanic was such a big deal, this list should provide some insight.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 16:40 GMT
To honor the solemnity of this anniversary, I will not make any wisecracks about Maj. Archibald Butt's name.

How can some people in this World not know that the Titanic disaster was a real event? It is shocking absoloutly shocking! I've known that the Titanic was a real event since I was a little girl, even before I became absoloutly obsessed with the history of it. Then there are some people that know that it was a real disaster, but think that Rose DeWitt Bukater and Jack Dawson were real people who were on the ship. They weren't, they're fiction! I despair sometimes, I really do! (Rant over, I'll shut up now.)

Only got 3 right while watching a documentary on the Titanic. Someone hand me my coffee!
Apr 15th, 2012 at 17:16 GMT
Much much harder than I expected. Nice quiz to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking!
Apr 15th, 2012 at 17:20 GMT
My mind became flooded in thoughts here.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 17:41 GMT
Although he may have survived the sinking of the Titanic Frederick Fleet was on of ten of the Survivors to commit suicide. The others included Annie Robison, Washington Dodge, Henry Frauenthal, Juha Niskanen, Jack Thayer, John Davis and Phyllis Quick

this is a terrible quiz
Apr 15th, 2012 at 21:09 GMT
Need to be careful with the Thayers. John Thayer,Sr. didn't survive, his son John Jr (Jack) did.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 21:26 GMT
Good quiz, and I don't see how it cheapens the memory of the disaster in any way, or it's sad that there should be a quiz about it. Also, Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon has to be among the ten best names of all time.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 21:43 GMT
I expected a much longer list.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 21:55 GMT
@Stran: Millions died during World War II and we have innumerable quizzes about that too.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 21:55 GMT
I love history, but know little of the specifics of the Titanic disaster. I was surprised that two of the four women perished simply based on the mantra of "women and children first" (the women were my first four guesses).
Apr 15th, 2012 at 22:02 GMT
I'm surprised Bruce Ismay is not right up there in correct answer % with Molly Brown. He famously wired the White Star Line’s New York offices the morning of April 15th from the Carpathia with the message "Deeply regret advise you Titanic sank this morning after collision with iceberg, resulting in serious loss of life. Full particulars later." He was also vilified the rest of his life for not giving up his lifeboat seat for one of the women left behind.

I didn't see exactly when it happened, likely some time early this morning, but... congratulations Sporcle on amassing THREE QUARTERS OF A BILLION plays!!! That's one play for every citizen of the U.S, Indonesia and Brazil put together- one play for every citizen of Europe (with 12 million to spare)- one play for every adult citizen of India- or, perhaps more importantly, 177 plays for every citizen of Kyrgyzstan!
Apr 15th, 2012 at 23:27 GMT
@ktappe I think Brown is up there because she had a prominent role in the movie and Ismay did not.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 23:32 GMT
I'd love to see the 3D sequel!
Apr 16th, 2012 at 00:14 GMT
Molly Brown took her nickname from the experience. The Unsinkable Molly Brown. True Story.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 00:39 GMT
@ChicagoGuy88: Sorry, buddy. Already made that joke. That usually happens to me, but I just figured out the trick is to play all the published quizzes for one day when they're published at midnight. Then you can always be the first one to say something. :D
Apr 16th, 2012 at 02:04 GMT
@munga- Actually, the press gave Molly Brown that nickname after her death. None of her friends ever called her 'Molly' but rather 'Maggie'.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 02:33 GMT
@Hejman. Munga actually has it right. That's a common misconception...
Apr 16th, 2012 at 02:35 GMT
As a huge Titanic fan I thought I'd get them all, Butt then I missed one...
Apr 16th, 2012 at 03:08 GMT
I can't imagine the sheer horror every passenger must have felt when they realized that the only solid ground beneath their feet was slipping into freezing water, thousands of miles from land, nothing but the dark night and the bottomless abyss surrounding them. Nearer My God to Thee indeed.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 03:14 GMT
Anyone else find it ironic that Frederick Fleet, the Lookout, survived?
Apr 16th, 2012 at 04:08 GMT
@Cmack- Actually, no munga does not have it right. You can see from the history contained on the Molly Brown House Museum website (http://www.mollybrown.org/), from news stories (http://denver.cbslocal.com/2012/03/26/museum-tells-story-of-titanic-survivor-molly-brown/) or from Kristen Iverson's biography "Molly Brown: Unraveling the Myth" (http://www.amazon.com/Molly-Brown-Unraveling-Kristen-Iversen/dp/1555662374) that she was called Margaret or Maggie during her lifetime and the nickname "Unsinkable Molly Brown" was given to her after her death.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 08:18 GMT
@Pogues How is that ironic? It's just the way things happened.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 11:24 GMT
@Pogues: That would be the complete opposite of irony. What is ironic is that the "unsinkable" ships architect died in the sinking. Thus the textbook definition of irony: unknowingly doomed by actions he believed to be right.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 16:57 GMT
@Hejman, I'm right enough to cause you two to argue over it
Apr 16th, 2012 at 17:33 GMT
@Munga. No you weren't. I was just trolling for larfs.
