Is it true the titanic wouldn't have sunk if it hit the iceberg head on?

By my calculations...

QE2 - 34.2 miles per gallon per person. Somebody even more bored at work can correct me if they wish.

This has turned into a QE2/Titanic thread!

Actually the more important figure is person-miles per gallon. (Sorry, my mistake - the mpg per person per gallon figure is meaningless.. and therefore ideal for this thread! Grin)

But the 34.2 figure is correct for PMPG. Smile

OK. let us assume a generous 12mpg for a large 4x4 on the school run with two passengers (mum + brat). We get a comparable figure of 24 PMPG.

So the QE2, for all its luxury, is a "greener" way to travel than a 4x4. We can, and no doubt will, argue about whether the correct parameters have been used. Should we include crew in the QE2 calculation - after all they are only there to serve the passengers. What if Mum has more than one brat in the 4x4.

So much to think about here..............

As for QE2 -v- Titanic (which is larger), we have already had that discussion. No clear cut answer. QE2 is longer, Titanic is heavier.

Heres one for you:

**** is an acronym.

Years ago the British being the great naval nation that we were used to transport everything via boat. When we started to ship manure etc. on boats around the coast they were alarmed at how many boats caught fire etc. They then realised it was all the poo on board and the build up of gases and such and decided it perhaps better to carry it above deck.

They then put it in crates and marked the crates with Ship High In Transit. Didn't take long before everyone was calling it **** and it stuck Wink
