     One-hundred and four years ago --  on April 15, 1912 -- the tragedy of the sinking of the "Unsinkable" RMS Titanic occurred.
    SInce that moment the Titanic hit that iceberg, the events of that night have provided the world with an endless litany of personal stories, miracles, and heart-aches for anybody whoever hears the word "Titanic".
    Accordingly, we explore some of these stories tonight in the 3 questions which follow.
    Please choose your answers from any of the 3 (reuseable) answers of "A", "B", or "C" (if applicable!) for each of the following question  
    Ok, dig out your scuba gear, or your fish & chips, and/or your personal copy of James Cameron's "Titanic" epic -- let's get wet!
