Adam and Jamie have now given fuel to the folks on the internet who are still arguing fifteen years later about whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack really had to sacrifice himself to save Kate Winslet's Rose. And apparently, his death was in vain. In a recent episode of "Mythbusters" the duo prove that if they had just a lifejacket underneath the plank, it could have theoretically kept them both afloat. Damn you James Cameron!
Anyway, it's a movie not a science experiment and one could argue that anyone in actual peril may not be thinking that clearly. And if anything, at least with the ending as it now stands, Cameron spared us a possible "Titanic 2: Iceberg's Revenge." Take a look at the "Mythbusters" clip below. [THR]
