with the 100th anniversary of the sinking having been yesterday/this morning and the movie being rereleased in 3D, i'm hearing people both online and off saying they are encountering a lot of today's teenagers who have been assuming that Titanic was just another Hollywood invention (the whole plot, not just the Jack/Rose B-plot).
and when told that, yes, there was a REAL Titanic and it REALLY sank and 1500+ people really DID die, then they're shocked and amazed that it Actually Happened(tm). :facepalm:
have any of you encountered such individuals? was it garden-variety "but i thought that was just a movie!" or do they go further, i.e. assuming Jack and Rose were real people?
bonus: encountered any other stupid Titanic-related comments/questions from people who should know better--aka are at least 25+?
not personally in either case, but plenty of anecdotes from others inspired me to make this post
