Officials are saying that the first call for help from a sinking South Korean ferry came not from the crew but from a frightened boy who used his cell phone to alert authorities that the boat was in distress!

The teen dialed the country’s emergency number and reportedly told dispatchers:

Four Dead, Hundreds Of Students Lost At Sea In Devastating South Korean Shipwreck

Filed under: Sad SadEducational

south korea ship sinking dead rescued

Oh no. This is just too horrible.

Four people are reported dead, and hundreds are still missing after a ferry suddenly sank off the coast of South Korea.

The Sewol was taking a local high school class to an island resort when witnesses reported a loud bump. The ship sank less than two hours after making its first distress call, remarkably - and tragically - quickly.

So far, authorities report that 164 people have been rescued, but another 292 are still missing.

Of those onboard, 325 were students from Seoul's Ansan Danwon High School taking a class trip. It's still unclear whether any students were among the four confirmed dead.

Rescue teams are struggling against bad weather, cold temperatures, and low visibility in an effort to find the remaining passengers. Our prayers are with them.

Obvi the Titanic love story between Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio was totes epic (and apparently still going IRL)!

But the Oscar-winning movie might not have been as fictional as even its writers thought!

According to newly translated documents, there may have been a real woman named Rose on the RMS Titanic who not only survived the infamous wreck- she wrote about it!

Letters dated in 1955 and signed by

Tiger Woods's Mansion Is SINKING! See His Palatial Estate HERE!

tiger woods house sinking mansion florida

Don't you hate it when you spend millions upon millions of dollars on a home, just to have it start sinking into the ground??

We do too! LOLz!

That's exactly what's happening to Tiger Woods's house right now — and they're scrambling to get someone to cure it before it sinks into the abyss!!

Apparently he and his lady, Lindsey Vonn, randomly started noticing cracks in walls and doors rubbing into the ground, which is a huge sign of a huge problem for a huge house! They immediately contacted a contractor for help, and his hail-mary solution is to insert giant screws called 'helical piles' as far as 24 feet into the ground!

Daaaaamn! That's so scary!

See?? It isn't all fun and games to be rich!

Ha!

Well, now you can! And all for the very reasonable price of $61,000!

That's right, in honor of the centenary of the Titanic's 1912 sinking, Deep Ocean Expeditions are now offering the public the opportunity to see the wreckage of the iconic ocean liner, and so far, a London banker and doctor from Missouri have already signed up!

According to expedition leader Rob McCallum:

More Details On Titanic Mini-Series! Helen Mirren Considering Role!

Filed under: TV NewsHelen Mirren

Wow! Maybe they really are trying to give James Cameron a run for his money!

It was announced yesterday that writer Julian Fellowes was working on a four-hour mini-series based on the 1912 sinking of the Titanic - to air on ABC, the UK's ITV, Canada's Global TV, and Australia's Channel 7, amongst many others - and now, it appears that Helen Mirren and Atonement's Romola Garai are circling roles in the project!

Although no information has been revealed about their potential characters, the drama is being described as a "heart-wrenching journey" and will include "multi-arc action, mystery, and romantic plotlines."

Filming is to begin this spring, with the premiere next year, as to mark the 100-year anniversary of the luxury liner's sinking.

Wowza. We have to admit, if it's done correctly, this could be a truly touching tribute to all those who lost their lives that devastating night.

What do U think?? Is a Titanic mini-series a good idea??

Titanic To Be Re-Released In 3D On The Anniversary Of The Ship's Sinking!

Filed under: Film FlickersTech Talk

titanic46014jb.jpg

James Cameron, you know how to make bank, sir!

The director recently announced that his 1997 blockbuster hit, Titanic, will be re-released for audiences in 3D in April of 2012 - on the 100 year anniversary of the luxury liner's sinking.

A little morbid, yes, but it's certainly a film we think could benefit from a viewing in the third dimension!

What do U think?? Would U go see Titanic in 3D??
