Titanic 107th Anniversary of her Sinking.

RMS Titanic sank in the early morning of 15 April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean, four days into the ship's maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City.

Titanic had an estimated 2,224 people on board when she struck an iceberg at around 23:40 (ship's time)[a] on Sunday, 14 April 1912. Her sinking two hours and forty minutes later at 02:20 (ship's time; 05:18 GMT) on Monday, 15 April, resulted in the deaths of more than 1,500 people, making it one of history's deadliest marine disasters during peacetime.

Titanic received six warnings of sea ice on 14 April but was travelling near her maximum speed when her lookouts sighted the iceberg. Unable to turn quickly enough, the ship suffered a glancing blow that buckled her starboard side and opened six of her sixteen compartments to the sea (the forepeak, all three holds, and boiler rooms 5 and 6). Titanic had been designed to stay afloat with four of her forward compartments flooded but no more, and the crew soon realised that the ship would sink. They used distress flares and radio (wireless) messages to attract help as the passengers were put into lifeboats. In accordance with existing practice, Titanic's lifeboat system was designed to ferry passengers to nearby rescue vessels, not to hold everyone on board simultaneously; therefore, with the ship sinking rapidly and help still hours away, there was no safe refuge for many of the passengers and crew. Compounding this, poor management of the evacuation meant many boats were launched before they were completely full.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” Movie ? Overview:

Enjoyed watching the movie ? “Bohemian Rhapsody”. It has already won the Producers Guild of America Awards 2018. Actor Rami Malek did a superb job. I would highly recommend this movie. “Bohemian Rhapsody” Trailer [HD]: https://youtu.be/6S9c5nnDd_s

Bohemian Rhapsody is a fact-based drama about the rock band Queen, particularly its talented and charismatic lead singer, Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek). 

The movie isn't as edgy as you might expect for the subject and era. Sex is implied between a man and a woman (they kiss, lie in bed together, etc.), 

Characters also fight, argue, and shout, and a rock crashes through a window. Like many musical biopics, the movie boasts a strong central performance and inspiring song performances, but the rest is pretty routine. But it should still please the band's fans.

WHAT'S THE STORY?

In “BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY”, Freddie Bulsara (Rami Malek) dreams of being a singer and goes to clubs to hear his favorite band play. When their lead singer quits, Freddie gets the job. He changes his last name to Mercury, and the band becomes Queen. Thanks to Mercury's astonishing vocal range and the band's hard rock sound, they find immediate success. Freddie marries his sweetheart, Mary (Lucy Boynton), and starts to deal with the pitfalls of fame, including drinking and drugs, ego wars, and his own sexual identity. Spending time with the wrong entourage sends Freddie down a bad path, pursuing a doomed solo career. In 1985, when Queen is invited to play the Live Aid show, Freddie must apologize to his former bandmates and get their groove back. Can they be ready for the performance of a lifetime?

 

Enjoying listening to “Bohemian Rhapsody” (The Original Soundtrack) by Queen.

Did You Know: From my understanding (and relentless counting), Queen recorded and released a total of 188 songs and there were 15 songs uncompleted or unreleased. There was also a number of songs Queen covered but these were done live at concerts and not released on any studio album.

 

Puns have a Distinguished History

Puns have a Distinguished History.

The case for puns as the most elevated display of wit. The oft-maligned wordplay is clever and creative. Puns have a distinguished history of disrespected witticisms. 
 
Despite its bad reputation, punning is, in fact, among the highest displays of wit. Indeed, puns point to the essence of all true wit—the ability to hold in the mind two different ideas about the same thing at the same time.
 
The pun’s greater importance is demonstrated by its strategic use in the oldest sacred stories, texts, and myths.
 
The pun brings not only two words together but the two ideas, prompting consideration of how to align your physical path (career, life, etc.) with your spiritual path.” It’s thus both a play on ideas and words.
 
William Shakespeare, the greatest English language playwright of all time and an acknowledged master of rhetorical jousting, loved puns so much so that Shakespeare annoyed contemporaries with his affection for wordplay. 
 
Great puns keep the reader toggling back and forth between meanings.
 
* 200 puns in Love’s Labour’s Lost
* 150 in each of the Henry IV plays
* More than 100 in Much Ado About Nothing and All’s Well That Ends Well
* An overall average of 78 puns per drama by The Bard. 
 
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the groundbreaking psychiatrist and writer Sigmund Freud appreciated puns precisely for this reason. They reveal the accidental connections that our minds make, just as the Freudian slip reveals insights into a person’s unconscious thinking.
 
Many a great mind has been inclined to pun.
