Titanic is trending, which means Rose Dawson is being slandered. So, it's time to present my case again on why Rose Dawson is not at fault for Jack's death, that he is solely to blame, and remind folks that she, in fact, saved his life.


Remember when he's jailed by the Master-of-Arms and abandoned, handcuffed to that huge pipe? Rose knows something's up, but instead of getting into the lifeboat with her mother and Molly Brown, she declines a seat to go find Jack.
Cal grabs her by the arms and threatens her. She spits in his face and runs away. She then finds Mr. Ismay, who is condescending and tells her she needs to get back into the lifeboat. And she's all "fuck that" and makes him give her directions to the Master-of-Arms' office.

Hello and welcome to today’s virtual #LowTideTrail #archaeology walk. Today we’ll take a Twitter based tour of #Liverpool’s Albert Docks. Join us to learn about the cities maritime past #LiverpoolBayDiscovery
400 years ago, Liverpool (or Lerpole) was a tidal inlet where ships could seek relative safety while unloading their cargo. Land reclamation of the Pool started in the late 16th century (300 years ago) and was complete by the early 1700s. This paved the way for the first dock. Sorry, can't get Twitter to rotate the image correctly.
As trade started to increase, a dock was required to ensure ships could unload their cargoes quickly & safely. The first dock was designed by Thomas Steers, covering an area of 1.4 hectares was designed to harbour 100 ships. Construction started in 1710 and it was opened in 1715.

La noche del 14 al 15 de abril de 1912 el famoso transatlántico británico #Titanic que realizaba su viaje inaugural entre Southampton y Nueva York, chocó contra un iceberg en el océano Atlántico frente a las costas de Terranova. ¿Tuvo la meteorología algo que ver?
El naufragio supuso una conmoción en el mundo entero, sobre todo en Nueva York y en Reino Unido. Tras el hundimiento, varias comisiones de investigación fueron llevadas a cabo, algo que ayudó a mejorar la seguridad en el mar. #Titanic
Sin embargo, una combinación de hechos como la falta de botes salvavidas, un aumento de velocidad del buque el cuarto día de navegación así como factores meteorológicos jugaron un papel determinante en su hundimiento. #Titanic

"At least six of Spain's 17 regions were at their limit of intensive care unit beds, and three more were close to it, authorities said. Crews of workers were frantically building more field hospitals."…
"Smaller U.S. cities are about to witness the rapid acceleration in coronavirus cases that New York is seeing."

"Nearly 15% (almost 13K) of all those infected in Spain are health care workers, hurting hospitals' efforts to help the tsunami of people gasping for breath."
"#Moscow went on its own lockdown Monday as all of Russia braced for sweeping nationwide restrictions. The Russian capital of 13 million accounts for over 1,200 of the country's more than 1,800 coronavirus cases."

Are any of you trying to explain your excitement to non-Q followers??

My relatives think I'm nuts.…

The FED and the IRS
FACT: US Federal Reserve is a privately-owned company, sitting on its very own patch of land, immune to the US laws.

Everything lines up with the #UnitedStates declaring #MartialLaw on April 11th & annoucing the indictment of #JohnPodesta on March 11th, which establishes the 1st marker, #Easter weekend. #Qanon post 35 - “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son” EASTER!
I think it will help a lot if I walk through each logical step. So on March 11, 2020 @realDonaldTrump gave this Presidential announcement stating a 30 day ban on air travel. #Podesta was indicted earlier this day per this theory. I’ll get to that in a sec
.@realDonaldTrump tweeted this 15 Days to Slow the Spread tweet on 3/17 which goes through 3/30. #Qanon post 497, A [15] in brackets with [Win]/when being interchangeable. The [15] ties this Q post to the 15 day tweet & window.

Just Read a very nice article, whilst onboard #Emirates for a short trip to #Dubai about the 3 ships which were nearby when the #Titanic sunk and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare ..

A quick reading is recommended..


It was 7 miles away from Titanic, but since the crew had been hunting seals illegally &didn't want to be caught,they turned away from the Titanic

This ship represents those of us who are so busy in our own sin &lives that we can't recognize when someone else is in need

This ship was only 14 miles away from the Titanic,but because the conditions weren't favorable & it was dark,the crew convinced themselves that nothing was happening

This ship represents those of us who say I can't do anything now & wait until conditions r perfect

Mass Protests are happening in Chile again, today.

Students, teachers, and education officials, protest Pinera's Neoliberal Austerity policies, marching from Plaza Italia to La Moneda.

"March of Silence"
Mourning Women, dressed in black, with flowers in their hands, march in memory of more than 23 murdered people, 1,300 wounded and 146 with loss of vision, by shots fired by soldiers and Carabineros of Sebastián Piñera's brutal Regime

A woman shows her wounds after being shot multiple times with pellets by Pinera Regime Forces.

The hospital falsely recorded the injuries as being the result of "domestic injuries".

Do (Supposed) #parallels between the #Gospels and #Pagan #myth prove that #Jesus was based on pagan #gods?
Um, #NO, and both the #Titanic and #EdgarAllanPoe will show you why:
Jesus Mythicists try to find any parallel between Christ and pagan gods in order to prove that Jesus was based on pagan myth, thus never existed. This is an idea that has been around for 300 years, yet it has never become the academic consensus. Indeed, Jesus Christ is recognized
as a historical figure by historical consensus.
Jesus Mythcists’ appeal to Parallelomania is faulty on logical grounds. For one, most of these so-called parallels are not really parallels at all (as Numerous people, including myself, have noted elsewhere). Two, just because a

Wat aparte conferentie #changingfacesofchristianity gisteren met oa. @brianmclaren en @StefanPaas. Persoonlijk denk ik dat er meer uitgehaald had kunnen worden en dat komt omdat alle acteurs behoorlijk in hun rol bleven zitten.
@brianmclaren was inderdaad vooral verhalen aan het vertellen en deed minder aan reflectie en theologische bezinning. De setting, in de #foundationuniversity, migratieachtergrond, zou oproepen tot het vertellen van verhalen over het christelijk geloof in Amsterdam.
Daar heb je gewone pinksterkerken, migranten-pinksterkerken, post-pentacoastals zoals Samuel Lee, Catholic Workers, hippe stadschristenen, new monastics, traditionele gemeentestichters, hillsongers, expat kerken, en protestantse pioniersplekken. Ik heb die verhalen gemist.

A great piece explaining the history behind

“The Menace of Political Correctness”…
The problem is, despite a detailed history, the article

from @ClaremontInst fails to call it what it is....

Worse, @ClaremontInst FAILS to provide any solution.

We are left with:

“What is to be done? Probably not much. One can only hope that political correctness will go so far as to make evident its absurdity, as @AOC Green New Deal has made alarmist environmentalism seem absurd...”

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.

Thread on RMS Titanic

107 years ago today the White Star liner Titanic was on her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK, to NYC. She was 882.5 feet long & one of the most luxurious ships ever built. Her passengers were elite of elite & even 3rd class travelers knew this was special
FYI, "RMS" stands for Royal Mail Steamer.

#Titanic's captain was seasoned sailor Edward J. Smith.
The building of #Titanic at Harland & Wolff shipyard in Ireland was major event. Here is one of her anchors.

“Six Chinese guys made it off the Titanic alive, and 24 hours later were written out of the story. That wasn’t an accident. That was deliberate.” The documentary, “The Six” reclaims this untold story.…
Too often, when I advocate for casting PoC in films, the naysayers rant about historical accuracy—that PoC didn’t exist in such and such event, time or place. But how many PoC stories, like six Chinese survivors of the Titanic, have been erased or untold?
And which stories *get* told in Hollywood? I am still waiting for feature films on the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans and the murder of Vincent Chin.
