Is there any record of anyone ever seeing or feeling ghosts of Titanic victims? I guess that some survivors may have, but anyone else?
Just wondering!

Suzanne, there are quite a few accounts of people experiencing near death apparitions, ghosts etc. Many came down through folk memory and oral tradition. How reliable these reports are is another question.

One that resonates eerily is the apparition connected with Matthew Sadlier of Clooncooe in Ireland, although it was not the ghost of Matthew himself that was purported to have appeared. As Senan Molony relates the tale in The Irish Aboard Titanic after Matthew's wrenching departure from home:

quote:

Days later, according to oral tradition, a Mr Easterbrook was cycling home when he met Matthew's dead sister walking along the estate avenue. Water was running down the hair of the ghost, which vanished with Easterbrook's balance as bike and rider crashed to the ground.
Matthew was among the lost.​

Eep.

As Kritina's just pointed out in another thread, we seem to have two ghost/paranormal threads running at once. Susan - you might like to check out a parallel* discussion: Supernatural or Paranormal Titanic?

*parallel, but not necessary a duplication.

Is there anybody in Southampton who is living in a house that the crew from Titanic were living in in 1912 that feels a presence? I realise that a number of houses were lost in WW2, however there must be a number of pre 1940 houses that are still residential.I would love to time travel to 1912 and warn the officers of the impending doom.What implecations would that have on today if you could change time???

"What implecations would that have on today if you could change time?"

The Nazi's would have won the War, We would all have been slaves unto the Eighth Reich, and then the Boxing Day Tsunami would have wiped the sun from the sky, leaving the ants in control of the Earth.

By asking such a question, you were asking for someone to someone to extract the urine.

Well, this message board would not exist, for one thing, had the officers been warned by a time traveller

Of course, if you time travelled to warn the officers, the second the iceberg was avoided you'd lose all memory of the Titanic disaster, it not having happened, and fly into an insane panic at finding yourself not in 2005 but 1912 with no idea of where you were, or why you were there. You might even lose any recall of how to return to 2005 since, of course, you'd also lose memory of time travelling back to a non-existing event and be trapped in 1912 with no money and no identification. Which means, likely, deportation back to England since Ellis Island had that money requirement. So, you'd be trapped with no money and no practical job skills 93 years in the past.
The implications can get even weirder, but I'll let it rest

Your district nurse should be able to help if your are having fumbles with your catheters.

Here we go, Jim. If we were to send a time traveler to warn the Titanic crew, the ship wouldn't sink. At the same time, we would never know to send one in time to begin with, right? so really the ship was doomed either way, right? dunno, i just confused me, you and everybody else who reads this.

Well, we'd know right up until the moment the iceberg was avoided. At that point, all memory of the disaster would be lost and we'd suddenly find ourselves in 1912 with no idea of how we got there and, worse, no memory of having time traveled and therefore no real way of getting back. Unless we were being monitored by someone in 2005 who had the means of bringing us back, we'd be stuck.

9 September 1966 was the air date for that episode called Rendezvous with Yesterday. All this from the Irwin Allen News Network (this guy wants to be credited if anything is used from his site-so there it is). I recall being so excited seeing this on my black and white t.v.- it was the only thing out there except for the MacQuitty film and the Stanwyck version. We were grateful back then!

Anyone prepared to write up Jak's idea as a novel? National Novel Writing Month begins Tuesday Nov. 1. The rule is simply write throughout the month until you've put at least 50,000 words in print. It can be the worst written novel in the world, or the best, depending solely on speed and talent. At least it's there. You haven't procrastinated.

Why does everyone forget the possibility of multiple universes in time-travel stories? Jeex, people, it's called an easy-out.

And Michael Rennie was in that episode? Wow, that puts a whole different spin into the mixer the next time I watch "The Day The Earth Stood Still."

I usually defer to the more learned members of the ET Message Board such as Michael Standardt et al. However, I can't resist making some dumb comment or asking some dumb question from time to time....so, just for fun... read my "Professor Smith and the Time Machine" on "Robert's Routes" at:

Maybe it should qualify for the worst Titanic story ever written ! :)
