Just learned that fourth smokestack was a fake, simply put there to make the ship appear more impressive. Served no function. Maybe if they'd put the extra money they paid for the faux smokestack into more lifeboats instead, this story would have had less of a bleak outcome.

Alas, nothing to do with money, Robin. More to do with the Hubris of Man. They were sure the ship was unsinkable,so no need to clutter up the Promenade Deck with the extra life boats.

It's a tragic tale. Hubris, bad judgement, so many things went wrong, from the very beginning.
