rose went on a small boat with the other ladies but as they were on theyre way down rose went back to titanic if rose would have staid on the boat with the ladies jack could have gotten the door all by himself. (sorry for bad spelling)

I watched a documentary on this(its obvious but I waste my own time a lot on YouTube) anyways The problem starts before they even get to the door. Rose is an idiot and if she wouldn't have jumped off the life boat they both could've lived

If both of them couldn't survive on that one piece of wood why not just swim to another one? There was lots of debris in the water to chose from

Bigger question, how did the Heart of the Ocean stay in Roses coat pocket, during the entire ordeal from the time Cal put the coat on her, that must have been one magic pocket, yes granted she didn't know it was there till she took it out of her pocket well on the Carpathia; but still How?

Well when you're in freezing water it's hard to think cause they were in water long enough that they can barely feel their legs and hands so maybe it was really hard for them to think in water that's 4 degrees

those are 2 grown ass men rose and jack were young so they must've weighed less

you are sooo smart. After all they faced, do you think that they could think about it? All Jack wanted was to save Rose. He didn't mind about himshelf but only for Rose's...😞

Ummm, that's a good piece of wood, not broken and tattered. That's why it could hold. Also, ummm, it was way a long time ago, so they weren't as crafty. If that was an actual bad piece of wood, and that worked, then I would believe more. And yeah, umm also add freezing cold water, night, and not good vision. See how that would've worked out.
'Sruxxy24' 1 week ago
Yes, but then it wouldnt have been the great tear jerker moment that won over the people at the Oscars now would it? Afterall it was just a movie. Not sayin it was a bad movie. I liked it a lot.

If only rose would have stayed on the boat with her mother and mother's friend, jack wouldn't have died because rose kept slowing him down after she got of the boat with her mom and jack would've been alone by himself on that door or whatever and they'd both meet at the ship that rescued the people

People also seem to forget that both jack and rose were smaller in size and weighed less than these two chubby middle aged men . So the door might have had enough buoyancy to keep the both of them completely out of the water .

Ok now make the water -1000 degrees, gather 700 other dying humans, and try experiencing a sinking ship Only then you can complete your theory

rose could've also been on top of jack not like the weren't before ;)
'Jacquelyn' 2 weeks ago
Okay so if they were both on it and part of them were in the water, I'm still thinking that their body heats (bodies heat?) TOGETHER would have counteracted that. Also, wouldn't saltwater have been more buoyant?
Artsy Articuno

Who would think to take off a life jacket and tie it on a door while in below freezing water while a ship is sinking and thousands of people are screaming? Seriously.

Ash Adante

and The weight of rose and jack too..
'lovingreds' 2 weeks ago
I disagree, The idea was to be fully out of water in sub zero temperatures. They would have both died. The test does not take into account the actual clothes they wore or the temperature. Truly given the factors only one would have survived.
"But it's so romantic <3" girls need you to die for them to prove that you love them. Guys just want a bj every once in a while. Gender equality.

Rose should have just stayed on the life boat with her mom then Jack would have had the entire door to himself and they would have reunited on the rescue ship.
'aznpanda510x' 2 weeks ago
Drop them in the middle of the sea, without that orange jump suit. So the freezing water soak up their clothes. Let see if they can stay stable. That why i don't watch this crappy show, but just had to click this to see what bullshit will come out of this " study " glad it was cancel.

I find this testing so stupid. Let them panic in ice cold water and let see if they can be stable.
Jada Rattana
'Jada Rattana' 2 weeks ago
I can just imagine just seeing two guys wearing an orange suit on a piece of wood and me being like "wtf is going on?????"

Rose is also much lighter than that guy, so he's weighing it down.

Jack Jack

In the heat of the moment, when your ship has just SUNK in FREEZING water, do you think they would really substitute a life jacket and take a few minutes to wrap it around the door. No. they wouldn't
Adrian D

If they just would've maneuvered and tried for like 30 more seconds JACK WOULD'VE LIVED!!! :O :O :O Oh well, he was kinda annoying anyway.

WTF. In the movie it was freezing cold and in the dark also they had to suffer a mental disturbance. so it wouldn't have been easy for them to both stay above water.
rebecca bacuka
'rebecca bacuka' 2 weeks ago
tbh in that situation it was 'unstable' or so he believed and he was wrong. He was freezing and stressed and most likely gave up as he truly believed it was unstable. If he knew they both could survive using this method i'm sure he would have used it, but he was perhaps not as smart as all the people who though of this brilliant idea.
