I was reading this morning about how the last living survivor of the Titanic just died. But the article totally buried the lead. Let me explain:

Millvina “You Just Don’t Hear Names like Anymore” Dean was only 8 weeks old when her family set sail on the Titanic in 1912. They were leaving England to go live in America, as was the custom in at the time. Little Millie, her mother and her two-year-old brother made it into a lifeboat, but her father went down with the ship. (Like a real man, Cal!)

But here is the freaky part: Millvina died on May 31, the 98th anniversary of the Titanic’s launch. Her brother died in 1982 – on the 80th anniversary of the ship’s sinking. How creepy is that?!?!?! Am I the only one who finds this extremely creepy!?!?!?

Yeah. I probably am.

Can someone please seriously make this movie?

Eeeerie. That reminds me of how Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on the same day...July 4. Fifty years to the day after the Declaration of Independence.

Didn't Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both die on July 4th? I don't know if that is just a legend or not, but it seems just as creepy.

You are correct DelV, as Words Words Words pointed out above. They both died on the same day - July 4, the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Dec of Ind. Supposedly Adams' last words were "Jefferson still lives." Or Jefferson's last words were "Adams still lives." Something like that. Also creeeeepy
