My gal’s off on a business trip so late evenings alone, what can I say I’m sort of a documentary junkie, there’s a bunch of good stuff out there, well, yea, a lot of not so good, but much of that I even like, everyone’s got their own perspective, and of course too much that’s plain bad.
In any event, for relaxation and to get away from the AGW, I go trawling at the second greatest invention on the internet: YouTube.
And with random documentaries you never know what you will get.
Well, let me tell you, did I ever bump into an eye opener this evening.
I had never before heard the revelation of how the S/S Titanic that went down was actually the S/S Olympic.
Apparently, they were diabolically switched at the ship yard.
Yea, go figure.
Why were they switched? Interesting that, it was an insurance scheme by White Star Lines.
If you’re like me, I’m sure you’re thinking, this is insane… thinking of a few big ‘contra-indicators’ right off the top.
But, no, they explain it. Man the shows nearly an hour long - mind you most these conspiracy dramas I can’t stomach and switch off.
There was something way too fascinating about the web of evidence and logic these folks were weaving… and perhaps the shear shocking novelty of this never suspected hoax.
It’s the sort of program I wish I could listen to a learned* professor deconstruct.
Conspiracies- Titanic:The Ship That Never Sank
Uploaded on Jul 30, 2011
One of the most controversial and complex theories was put forward by Robin Gardiner in his book, Titanic: The Ship That Never Sank? In it, Gardiner draws on several events and coincidences that occurred in the months, days, and hours leading up to the sinking of the Titanic, and concludes that the ship that sank was in fact Titanic’s sister ship Olympic, disguised as Titanic, as an insurance scam.
PS - when I use the term “Learned” it’s a term of appreciation for what it means to seriously study and achieve.
