You Knew the Sinking of the Titanic Actually Happened, Right?

This coming April 15th isn't just a date to sweat about your tax returns, it marks 100 years since the RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City. The ship had a reputation for being unsinkable but was ultimately taken down by an iceberg, resulting in 1,514 lives lost. The story of the Titanic has been depicted in film and television dozens of time, the most famous being James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster film of the same name. The director released a 3-D remastering of his film on April 6th to coincide with the 100-year sinkdate of the famous ship, but it appears as if the movie's re-release has confused some of today's younger generation who had no idea the film was based on a true story and didn't just drop out of Cameron's brain alongside ideas for blue nature-loving aliens and deep sea explorations.

Funny or Die has a collection of tweets from users who recently had their minds blown by the fact that the Titanic did indeed sink nearly 100 years ago and wasn't just a result of a green screen, a water tank, and a shivering, chattering-teethed Leonardo DiCaprio trying to tell Kate Winslet not to drop her priceless necklace into the ocean when she turns into an old senile asshole. Check them out:

My reaction to this:

Do me a favor and restore my faith in the human race by telling me that you knew the sinking of the Titanic actually happened, right? Even if you have to lie to make me feel better, tell me that you at least paid a little attention in history class and understand it was a real event that was tragic back in its day. Please?

You knew that The Titanic sinking was real, right?

I have no words. Isn't the Titanic in history books or something? I mean, I know I learned about it in school long before the movie was filmed.

I was 11 when this film came out. I don't know if I learned about the ship in school, or if a reference to disaster led to me asking about it and learning the reality prior to the film.

What I do know is that the film was so massively popular that I can understand why modern teens (who have the most amazing research tools available to them, yet use them for Angry Birds and tweeting) do not know better. James Cameron, everybody! He makes one generation of teens cry, then confuses the historical sensibilities of another.

I read a titanic boat and heard about the death of the last survivor.....I think now that she isn't around people have nothing to remind them.
