(See in situ)

Iceberg claims its innocence. T'was the icicle!

Check weather reports. Not newspaper accounts. The icicle! Tore a gash through one inch steel plating below the waterline. Clearly the dastardly work of the icicle.

Or was is those Optical Aleutians playing tricks, as discovered recently by the Smithsonian?

Did the Titanic Sink Because of an Optical Illusion? New research may have found the reason why the ship struck an iceberg: light refraction... An optical illusion? The Smithsonian published this whopper last year. Smithsonian magazine, March 2012.

Unbelievable accounting: since 1912. Research: "Sink a ship."
