 Not Bernie. Not Hillary. I want to see somebody "new" who doesn't have baggage to be exploited. I hate to say it, since I'm kind of a fossil myself, but I'm beginning to think there should be an upper age limit as well as a lower one of I think it's 35!

Was it possible to save the Titanic from sinking?

Woody Hancock
Once the iceberg had been spotted, it was essentially too late to do anything other than try to get around it or ram it head-on. It’s possible that the ship and her passengers and crew might have been better off if they had rammed the iceberg, but for those on the bridge that night, ramming, unless it was totally unavoidable, would have run counter to all of their training and experience, which is why they reacted by trying to steer around it.
First Officer Murdoch’s orders, to full-reverse the port engine and turn the ship’s wheel hard to starboard (remember, the Titanic had tiller-type steering so turning the wheel to starboard had the effect of turning the ship to port), were the correct ones and would have resulted in a sharp turn to port. This happened - testimony from the inquest following the sinking indicated that the ship began to alter course immediately after the lookout’s warning.
However, a 52,000 ton ship traveling at 22.5 knots does not turn on a dime, regardless of the size of her rudder (there is debate on whether it was big enough). Also, in the engine room, the port engine would have had to be stopped and reversed manually. It’s estimated that only 37 seconds passed between the sighting and the collision, and thus, in a situation where mere moments counted, there simply wasn’t enough time to execute the necessary turn.
