Quite a wacky comic and it isn't even a Friday. 14:16, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Ooh, a first draft... Hoo boy, that last sentence, though... that is in desperate need of some editing 16:00, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Small point, but lorem ipsum isn't pseudo-Latin it's from Cicero's de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum (The Extremes of Good and Evil. It's been used since the very early days of printing.Richardelguru (talk) 16:33, 26 October 2016 (UTC)richardelguru.
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. 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... (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

- 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. -- 19:41, 26 October 2016 (UTC)BoomerSooner

I saw it, too. And, while Kynde was commenting, I adjusted it... MAP (talk)
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. -- 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. --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:Username'); 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) -- 22:35, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Million random digits Might also reference the way the movie files are stored? 00:01, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

'A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates' may be a wink at '50 Shades of Grey' -- Legec (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

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.) 21:24, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
