100 years ago this month the unsinkable luxury liner hit an iceberg and within hours sank to the bottom of the sea. If the ship's designers had demonstrated less hubris, if the Captain had slowed down even one knot, if the Californian had responded to the flares instead of confusing them for fireworks, if the life boats had been filled to capacity, if, if, if, the story would have a different ending.
But it doesn't and life goes on and we do have reasons to celebrate like frickin' socioeconomic equality in moments of crisis. Glad I got that off my chest.
Set the right tone at your next cocktail party with ice trays in shapes of ships and bergs and toast your own night to remember.
