DURST: Historic Romantic Disasters

Due to the fact that thousands of girls barely bigger than the family sized tub of popcorn have seen it so many times; memorizing which way the individual drops of water move, the movie "Titanic" has become the largest grossing picture in history.

With morals as empty as a South Texas Motel 6 nowhere near a freeway exit ramp in August. Okay. But not stupid.
