::It is, but the "received" lorem ipsum text is pretty garbled, starting with improper word-splitting at the the very beginning. It shouldn't be described as a straight quotation from Cicero. [[Special:Contributions/162.158.74.53|162.158.74.53]] 17:49, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
 
 
 
I'm not sure how to post comments, but I believe it should read 97 previous Titanics sank, if the movie is about the 98th one striking the reef....  User: bsellnow  26 October 2016... {{unsigned ip|108.162.215.126}}

- The 98th ship might not be the first one to hit the reef. "That series gets good when they start hitting the reef created by all the previous wrecks" implies to me that multiple "good" movies have involved hitting the ship-reef and there's no indication that Titanic 98 was the first one to do so. --[[Special:Contributions/162.158.74.42|162.158.74.42]] 19:41, 26 October 2016 (UTC)BoomerSooner

::There's no reason we should infer that Titanic 98 is about a ship hitting the reef rather than an iceberg. Titanic 98 is the film that Cueball calls out, but Black Hat's response doesn't imply that it's one of the good films in the series. For all we know, this doesn't happen until Titanic 409. --[[Special:Contributions/172.68.79.81|172.68.79.81]] 20:22, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
 
:Is it fair to point out that there could possibly have been more than 1 Titanic in some of the movies, which would have made building a reef much easier. --[[User:Andyd273|Andyd273]] ([[User talk:Andyd273|talk]]) 20:25, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
 
::The Titanic was also 269 meters LONG, which is six times the requisite 40 meters of reef per ship.
 
 
 
::If the first three Titanics landed on their sterns, forming a triangular three-column base, and the next three landed precisely on top of those columns, forming a three-ship triangular strut....  you MIGHT be able to repeat that pattern all the way up to the surface, building a scaffolding of sunken Titanics.
 
 
 
::Of course, this would work better if you had some sort of rubble filling the gaps between the scaffolds.... such as other ships or animals the titanics struck instead of an iceberg, cargo the titanics dumped in an attempt to stay afloat, random flotsam that recovery crews pumped down to the sunken titanics in an attempt to retrieve the hulls....

I don't know if this is relavant but, the random numbers movie is mentioned in this review: [https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R31OWHW3Z0HKQ1/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=0833030477] [[User:Username&#39;); DROP TABLE users;--|Username&#39;); DROP TABLE users;--]] ([[User talk:Username&#39;); DROP TABLE users;--|talk]]) 22:07, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Might Titanic 98 be in part a snark on the Windows version? (interesting that, of all the large numbers, it happens to be one used for a Windows version) -- [[Special:Contributions/141.101.70.199|141.101.70.199]] 22:35, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

The husky could be a reference to the University of Washington Huskies, rather than the UConn Huskies. (Athletic teams from the two schools have played against each other at least once.) [[Special:Contributions/108.162.246.53|108.162.246.53]] 21:24, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Assuming that Black Hat only has good movies is rather absurd, as there's not a shred of evidence to support this. Especially since this is Black Hat we're talking about. Therefore, there's no evidence that Titanic 98 is about the ship hitting the reef, and therefore, the calculations about stacking 97 ships have no relevance. --[[Special:Contributions/172.68.79.81|172.68.79.81]] 15:06, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
 
:Since this is relevant to a specific comic, I suggest that you just leave this comment on that specific comic's discussion board. Thank you. --[[User:JayRulesXKCD|JayRulesXKCD]] ([[User talk:JayRulesXKCD|talk]]) 15:13, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
 
::Yes that is true Jay. Anyway there is reason to believe that Black Hat either thinks or teases Cueball with his movies, and thus he suggest that the movies he has are god. Also the other comment he makes suggest this. So I think there is a lot of evidence that this movie 98 is one in the series of movies where Titanic hits the reef of older Titanics. --[[User:Kynde|Kynde]] ([[User talk:Kynde|talk]]) 14:05, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
 
:::Cueball names 7 movies, Black Hat replies to 4 of those. He has definitively positive things to say about 2 of those, and simply states information about another. In that context, there's no reason to assume his comment about the Titanic series should be interpreted as a claim that he considers Titanic 98 to be 'good'. And with only 2 of the other 6 known movies in his collection being stated as 'good', that's clearly not "a lot of evidence" that Titanic 98 is 'good'. --[[Special:Contributions/108.162.237.86|108.162.237.86]] 21:24, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
 
::::Well we disagree on that then. If the explanation should be changed on the basis of this discussion it should be moved to the relevant discussion page. If it is the same person who wrote from both IP .81 and .86 you could move it there your self. Feel free to include my replies, but leave out Jays as that has nothing to do with the discussion. --[[User:Kynde|Kynde]] ([[User talk:Kynde|talk]]) 09:56, 4 November 2016 (UTC)
 
  
Ironically, Michael Bay always tries to use real pyrotechnic effects on-screen.

Perhaps Randall got mistaken by the fact that the Transformer robots have to be CGI out of necessity and expediency. [[Special:Contributions/162.158.165.40|162.158.165.40]] 06:36, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
