The story of the Titanic is widely known across the globe. Even if you haven’t watched the beautiful love story between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, you still understand the gist of what happened aboard the Titanic. The main idea was that a massive boat and an iceberg doesn’t mix and, in the end, the large boat found itself at the bottom of the ocean.
