This or That: Shipwreck or Trainwreck

I was getting a little scared on this one. There was a lot of big talk about Real World nerdery and even Titanic geekdom. So let's see how you all did, shall we?

Julie Oliver: Real World Cast Member.
Mark Fortune: HMS Titanic Casualty. There was a Mark on Road Rules...tricksy.
Lucian Smith: HMS Titanic Casualty.
David Burns: Real World Cast Member.
Katie Peters: HMS Titanic Casualty. Another Road Rules first name.
Stephen Williams: Real World Cast Member.
José Carrau: HMS Titanic Casualty.
Frank Roessler: Real World Cast Member.
Robina Ford: HMS Titanic Casualty.
James Hill: HMS Titanic Casualty.
Syrus Yarbrough: Real World Cast Member.
Raihed Razi: HMS Titanic Casualty.
Charlie Dordevich: Real World Cast Member.

Since none of the Titanic people were anybody famous, it was pretty much a game of whether or not you knew your Real World people's names. More guys named Ali and Ahmed died on the Titanic than I would have expected, and another neat thing about the Victims of the Titanic list is that 3rd class passenger tickets cost as low at 4£, and 1st class ranged from 25£ to 263£ (paid, ironically, by Mark Fortune). Some 3rd class passengers paid more than 1st class. Maybe they brought more stuff with them. TorT makes you smrt.

This week's first class winners and Real World junkies tied with 11/13: mac and coldblackncold!

Coming in second with 10/13, the Los Angeles, if you will, thenotoriousmeb and piperlemons!

And in third place, lucky enough to get spots on the lifeboat with 9/13, absolutcalm, observacious, and bfirrera!

As always, suggestions for future This or That categories welcome.
