Finally!   A mystery a quarter-of-a-century in the making may have been solved!   We can settle this infuriating and puzzling detail to one of the biggest, most successful, and most acclaimed movies of all time.   We’re looking at James Cameron’s Titanic from 1997…winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director…among other awards.

In the last scene of the film, Kate Winslet‘s character Rose is trying to survive in the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean…while her boyfriend Jack (as played by Leonardo Di Caprio) is struggling to stay alive in the freezing water.   In case you need a reminder from the movie, check out the scene below, and then come back to the article.



OK, now that we’ve refreshed our memories from this 25-year-old film…what do you think?   Did Rose have enough room on her makeshift raft to get Jack on it and save his life?   I mean, had she been able to move over a couple of feet…there’s a good chance that Jack would not have met his watery grave at the bottom of the Atlantic.   Well, now, there’s a Titanic pool float that proves this theory true!   Look at the pic below!



Check out that float!   It appears that there was PLENTY of room for Jack!   I mean, how much did Leo possibly weigh…150 pounds?   And what is he, five foot ten or so?   There’s MORE than enough room on that pool float!   And there was more than enough room on Rose’s raft!   You’re a MURDERER, Rose!   Case closed!

I’m Davey Mac of the Morning Rat Race and I’ve solved this mystery!   Have a nice day!
