I dont know where I was. But I can say where my grandfather was. He was then in the classroom in his primary school.

My grandfather was a mere 4 years old and doubt that it had any impact on him. His father, my great grandfather and all of my other great grandfathers were likely busting sod when they found out about the Titanic and doubt that the news had much impact on them as well.

Where Were You When You Heard (about) the Titanic Sunk?


I think I was in about 7th or 8th grade. I saw a movie with Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb about the Titanic. That was the first I knew about it.

I remember you, I was the one out there in my DMC 12. Not hard to miss with the Flux Capacitor, but then again it was night and you were paying lots of attention to that ship about to hit.

In related news, the iceberg that sank the Titanic has recently been inducted into the International Iceberg Hall of Fame.

Sorry. Have to credit The Onion for that one.

I was standing in line, waiting to buy a ticket to see the movie. Someone mentioned that the ship sunk. Ruined the whole evening.

2cold too funny...
I wasn't born yet, come to think of it neither were my parents...
first read about it in a paperback book called "A NIGHT TO REMEMBER"
did a school project on the book, I think I was in 7th or 8th grade at
the time...then I saw the musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" with
Debbie Reynolds...and finally the big movie a couple years ago...
