I know that people have varying opportunities around the country (and the world) when it comes to education. We try not to judge people for not knowing things that we take for granted because of it.
That said, it can be easy to be flabbergasted when someone is totally unaware of a fact or event that we consider to be common knowledge.
I mean…how does one get to be an age where they can tweet and not know there was really a ship called the Titanic that actually sank back in the day? How?
These 15 people aren’t revealing how or why their knowledge was lacking, so we don’t have answers there – but these tweets are definitely proof they thought Hollywood just made it all up.
15. The real question is, did you not?
Because I think that’s the mind-blowing part.
14. I have questions.
Like…how long is “always?”
13. The Titanic was real.
Sadly, Jack Dawson was all made up.
12. It is a long fictional movie.
But also, the Titanic is real.
11. This is so confusing.
Like. It would have taken less time to Google than tweet?
10. Yes, as a matter of fact I can.
So can the majority of other people in the world.
9. Those all caps are well deserved.
That’s how my mind has responded to all of these tweets.
8. What are those question marks all about?
Like…is she still not quite sure she believes it?
7. Yes indeed, and yes indeed.
Wayyyy too many people, as a matter of fact.
6. Did they mean to Google this?
If not, I feel like they should have.
5. It was, in fact, mental.
Hard to wrap your mind around even after you’ve known for a while.
4. The answer to the first question is yes.
The answer to the second question requires a bit more thought.
3. It wasn’t exactly a cruise.
That said, there are plenty of reasons to avoid cruise ships.
2. If only James Cameron knew.
He’s a producer, director, and maritime history teacher all at the same time.
1. What’s confusing about this?
The answer is just always yes.
I cannot, y’all. I just cannot.
Has something like this ever happened to you, where you found out after the fact that you were the last one to know something was real when you thought it was pure fiction?
If so, please explain yourself in the comments!
