Meg, you are wrong.

On the night of 14 April 1912, during her maiden voyage, Titanic struck an iceberg, and sank two hours and forty minutes later in early 15 April 1912.

You should have checked before posting that item. Hey… haven’t ypu watched the movie? ;)

Technically it made two stops before heading to NY (France & Ireland), but yes I would say that this is a win for Reuters…
