Well spotted, Steven, Bottom line is we all have something to offer. Totally reject at your peril. teach when you can and learn from your teachers3 points:
1. Agree probably not wiser but maybe a little more informed. Not for a lot of the Titaniac's but for some. So many of the 97 movie watchers took at face value that Murdoch shot himself. Hopefully some casual surfers of this site or others might learned that that hasn't been proven. Although I liked the 97 movie I never liked that Cameron put that in his movie.
2. Yes its true its getting hard to talk about new stuff in the general sense..I mean the big picture of Titanic. A recent thread pointed that out very well. I answered some questions but after providing a link I realized everything I said had been covered in it...back in 2001. But that being said I learn something new almost every time I come here..especially nautical and mechanical information.
3. You can learn a lot from some of the younger crowd. Especially when it comes to the digital world. I know a lot about computers. I came up thru ranks so to speak. Started when you actually had to walk inside the computer to fix it. But I had to learn all that and have to think about it when something doesn't work right. I've had one of my 16 year old relatives point out stuff to me that I wouldn't have thought of. Coding is almost like their primary language. Its in their DNA now. I was impressed with his grasp of digital logic. Now if I could get him to change a tire I might put him back in my will...*S*
