So you think you know why the Titanic sank

It did hit an iceberg but the ship may have survived if it wasn't for one thing..

What it relates to is that White Star, on the edge of bankruptcy, decided ''themselves'' it was safe to sail ignoring a serious problem that was happening down below.

I've seen a movie about this...

A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission.

I don't like the "...had to be burning for 3 days...." statement about the fire in the hull while building. And then the iceberg hit in that exact spot.
Maybe there is more behind it, but this video didn't make the case.

Even when the ship left Cherbourg then Cobh,Ireland for New York the fire in and around the boiler was out of control all the time and the ship should never have set sail.

Yes, the ship had a rough birth. I'm just not sure if the fire problem was consequential, since the hubris of speeding through icebergs seems so central.
This does resemble the Boeing 737 Max debacle in many ways!

It sank because they forgot to bring a supply of Flex Seal and Flex Tape.

Jack could have fit.

It sank because Rose is a selfish asshole. With the size of that door, she could have easily fit Leo and the Titanic on it

I’ve read this before. It was the sister ship Olympic that ‘filled’ in for the Titanic. The Titanic was the one that sold for scrap in 1935.

IDK, feels like I’m a ‘flat earth goon’ by bringing up these conspiracy theories.

The titanic never sank. Don't believe what you read. It's sailed due north, and fell off the edge of the earth, landing on the moon. That's why the Moonlanding's are fake. There was no space to land on the moon, because of that stupid big ship. Interesting sidenote, it's where "Q" now lives.

Having a Captain that seemed oblivious to iceberg danger, wrong man for the job Smith giving order to go at full speed with the iceberg warnings then going to sleep was another factor.

The Titanic sank because it got a hole in it and subsequently filled with water.

There was no iceberg involved. It's all a lie.

I heard somewhere, I can't remember where, that the Titanic sailed off the edge of the Flat Earth.

Many research centres did bench-test and studying similar sink. fire or not, this kind of metal , with the boat velocity, will make a hole.
