Do we know of any gay individuals amongst Titanic's passenger or crew compliment? I realize that gays were less apt to come out in 1912 than they are in 2007, but I am still curious if there was anyone on Titanic that we know was gay.
Many Titanic buffs happen to be gay, so it would be interesting to know if any of the Titanic passengers & crew that are researched were also gay..

Yeah, I'm not up on Latin, so sorry for the mistake. And with something like three pages of information and speculation on the thread that I referred Tarn over to, I figured that there was no real reason to re-invent the wheel.

But please do remember that if you are going to quote text from another post, even if spelled incorrectly, you do not also change things such as capitalization. ("ad" as compared to "Ad".) It is much more simple to quote the original text and add (sic) to the quote. Otherwise you risk loosing the point of a mis-spelled word, especially if it is in a foreign or dead language.

Not when you are changing a direct quote. To avoid this, you begin the sentence with another word followed by the direct quote. Likewise, if you are to start a sentence with a number, it is to be spelled out. One other notable exception is a Trade name such as eBay which should never be spelled as EBay or Ebay.
 
Ah, but it is not a direct quote- it is a simple correction. There are no quote marks around what Jim wrote. Otherwise, if it were a direct quote, it would say, Tim Trower writes, ".."

Sure, and I could go back and edit and make people wonder what you are trying to create now. But I don't think you are worth the bother. As I mentioned on a now deleted Titanic Branson thread I'm not going to respond to you. I wish I had thought of that a few posts ago.

If you want to talk Titanic, fine. If you look only for argument, then bug off.

It was the term ad nauseum that raised an eyebrow on my part. There may not have been a reason for Tarn to re-invent the wheel, so to speak, but then there was no reason for you to introduce that particular dismissive term either, since 'extensively' would have done just as well. I was, frankly, having fun with the fact that you could not properly spell the term with which you were dismissing both Tarn and a subject which many have found interesting rather than nauseating. In short, nihil sub sole novum nec valet quisquam dicere ecce hoc recens est iam enim praecessit in saeculis quae fuerunt ante nos

And I say that not in the spirit of

I sincerely mean it!

I love Latin. Of course I'm a medieval freak too. Among my other interests. In the Twelfth century they had their own Titanic called the White Ship in English. I'm gonna start a topic on it if anyone wants to read the story do a search. It's Interesting stuff. It had as great an impact on the 12th century as the Titanic on the 20th Century. Sorry to go off topic. It was the Latin. Now back to topic.
