being 80% out of the water wasn't good enough - death from hypothermia would have just taken a few minutes longer
'krayzeejojo' 3 days ago
Joke’s on Rose. If Jack climbed-on and survived he would’ve killed himself sometime after they married. Smart man for figuring it out 100 years ahead. RIP.

Whether the water is cold as vanilla ice or hot as the pits of hell. If they both shared the plank they BOTH would have survived. It's not even a debate

When I was watching the movie . SHARE THE DOOR ( or whatever the piece are ) SHARE THE THING .

He could have but the water was and is very cold so he would have been to weak to get on since the water was so cold
'elainexoxo' 4 days ago
yes, they could have. but after being in such situation where you witness the ship that will never sink, SINK and you have 0 idea where your family is and all that and the water is freezing in the AtLantic ocean, i bet you wouldn't even be able to think about that in such panic situations

People don't understand, yeah they both might fit, but it's freezing cold out there. They were probably panicking. When Jack couldn't support himself the first time, he probably didn't want to try again because he can't think properly. When you're in distress, it's kinda hard to think for a solution. It's easy for you guys to comeup with solutions but with people around you dying, I don't think you would think about trying for other solutions. I just wished they had 2 doors for one of them.

It was 1912 and the Atlantic is freezing ice cold I don’t think you can think physically when your in freezing water. Plus Mythbusters is not in Atlantic Ocean. Rose should of went on the lifeboat and jack could of went on the doorframe. RIP Jack

They didn’t have time to try and tie that under it also how much warmer was it out of the water? Was it possible warmer in the water? I mean if it’s 3degrees Fahrenheit then the water has to be what 30 degrees Fahrenheit? I know 32 is freezing point but I thought saltwater get get a little colder without freezing

I mean, I agree with the fact that jack didn’t have to die, but you guys also have to calculate the fact that they’re half frozen to death and that they just escaped a ship that could’ve killed them into the equation...

If only this has happened and jack could of lived😩 but I don’t think some people understand that jack and rose were not just in a movie. Yes they were actors but on the real titanic there was a real jack and rose. They found rose who survived as u can see in the movie. She was the one who told her own story of her and the boy she was in love with (as seen in the movie) and that’s how the movie ppl knew all this happened bc the real rose told them :(

The debris that Rose was on was larger than what Myth Busters is using
'jason60chev' 1 week ago
There's plenty of room for two, if they really wanted it. The film shows that the debris was overturning as Jack tried to get onto it, which is why he remained in the water. He should have tried to get on from the other side.
'MissPumpkin91' 1 week ago
its funny how people go blaming on Rose like "oh my gawd why yu so stupid ant dont just think for a moment" and they forget that she was a 17 year old rich girl in the middle of a sinking ship, cold, scared and tired...

'Slyness69' 1 week ago
I've fallen under icy water and was almost killed. You don't think calmly you panic, your muscles begin to seize up so can't grip onto objects properly. Run the test again in the same conditions as the people who died that night and you'll see how pathetic this 'test' really is. Jack and rose didn't have time to fuck around trying to balance the door because you really do have to get out of waters that cold fast.

No because they wighe different and that isn’t the same door and if u were in the Atlantic Ocean what would’ve u done exactly🙄

Well maybe if Rose went on the lifeboat and Jack would’ve found the door go on it, and then both would’ve survived and met each other on the rescue ship.

"The script says Jack dies, he has to die" - James Cameron Stop it people!
Sharee Ratten
'Sharee Ratten' 1 week ago
People need to remember that, in the Titanic sinking, everything that happened during and after was completely unexpected, and passengers left in the water had no clue or preparation on how to survive in freezing water. Hence, people tend to panic and make quick, random decisions. Let's say Jack wanted to share the door with Rose, but both panicked and it only *seemed* then that only one could fit. Jack and Rose may be fictional, but they were not written to be perfect - right now, they were just like every other person in the waters, so Jack made a quick decision to let Rose have the door.

Why does he sacrifice himself to keep her head above water?... *She's* wearing a life jacket ...not him.He should've climbed on the debris first and then pulled her up,she would've floated with that big life vest on.

Its easy, when you are on panic, you dont think well, he save the person he love, for him that its the important, its like the film about the plain, if he know about the birds nothing of that would appen.
Samuel Tate
'Samuel Tate' 2 weeks ago
Nobody takes into consideration the fact and concept that Jack was completely selfless and only cared about Rose's survival at the time. He probably figured him trying to survive as well would be a hindrance to Rose's survival even if he was able to fit on the raft.
'Jenoodo' 2 weeks ago
they couldn't of gone in 'baby steps' because they were probably freezing to death
john doe
'john doe' 2 weeks ago
Also many people on Titanic could have survived by doing this. If they had used their heads instead of panicking, they would have broken off doors, and gathered mattresses and used them as rafts. Everyone on board could have survived if they did this actually.

'Da'Shanda Roberts' 2 weeks ago
This how it could have went. If Rose didn’t jump off the lifeboat and back onto the ship maybe Jack still finds that door after it’s over and has it all to himself. Having to save only his life and not two! Then that lifeboat comes back to search for any living survivors and Jack blows the whistle (just like Rose did) they find him and then they reunite back on that rescue ship all the survivors got on. (Then a BIG FIGHT breaks out between Cal and Jack and everybody’s like OH SHIT get him Jack! Rose like yeah that’s my man! Cal’s like square up with ya broke ass) Jk...🤣

I feel like Jack still would have died, I mean yeah you guys figured how a way he could of survived , but they were freezing. I don't know how long it took you guys to actually figure that way out in real time, but I'm sure if they went through that whole process, there chance of them both dying would go up. But this is just my opinion 💁

The doors on the TITANIC were made from MAHOGANY, not a bedroom door like in this video. MAHOGANY is one of the most DENSE HARDWOODS. The door would have been lucky to float by ITSELF. The "myth Busters" don't EVER account for manipulative VARIABLES. (Also, HOW did a solid mahogany DOOR WITH STEEL HINGES, just happen to rip off, even with the structural failure of the ship? And, why didn't SHE float on the door, and give HIM the fuckin LIFE JACKET. Selfish slut.

It isnt about "omg jack shouldve survived" on the OG titanic it didnt exist Jack and Rose. If Jack lived too people wouldve focus on the couple and their happy ending and didnt gave a single fuck about the 1500+ people that lost their lives that night. Jack's death was for us exactly what the families felt the next day when they found out about the accideng.

After witnessing one of the worst catastrophes, falling into below freezing cold water, surrounded by the dead bodies of men, women, and children, some of which were still alive and shrieking for help, floating in a dark ocean in the middle of the night, is when people make the *best* decisions.

He’s a little bigger than rose but I’ll take it
'punkstarbear' 3 weeks ago
Everyone says if rose had stayed in the boat, Jack could have had the door. But remember Jack wasn't wearing a life vest and he's a guy, so that's 2 major reasons why you would die of hypothermia faster. Women survive freezing much better than men. Being on the door might not have made much difference. Then again the whole thing is flawed, because what about all the other debris? I'm sure Jack could have grabbed one of the many floating chairs, flotsam, etc. It wasn't like that was the one and only plank. But the point was, you can forgive anyone not thinking straight in that situation, but you can't forgive the idiots who didn't plan enough fucking lifeboats in the first place.

Steven Turner

Jack would have survived, but then Rose would have gotten knocked up and Jack would disappear, probably taking that diamond with him. Rose would Then get disowned by her shallow family and have to raise her child alone on the streets- possibly turning to prostitution. Her mother would get socially rejected and end up in a psychiatric ward, and Cal would laugh all the way to the bank smiling at how he dodged disaster both on the Titanic and by not marrying a woman who runs off with the first exciting bad boy she meets. That is not romantic, so stay in the freezing water pretty boy.

Well why couldn't rose and Jack switch turns to be on top of the door and let Rose be in the water at some point so neither could freeze to death?
