Deep Sea Technology

I saw that they guy who made the movie Titanic took a submarine to the deepest part of the ocean. The pressure was so strong that his sub shrunk around him about three inches in every direction, just as it was designed to do. The window in front of his face even bowed in from the pressure. Then as soon as he was done he cruised to the surface, shot some photos, and then hopped a plane for the Titanic 3D premier. My friend pointed out that she hopes the title track by Celine Dion from Titanic doesn't become popular again. Though we live in a different time. Even if it does become popular, I'll never hear it because I never have to listen to the radio anymore. When Titanic first came out there was no avoiding that song. But through technological advances we can ignore it. Technology has developed to the extent that a movie director can dive to the deepest place on Earth, but he can no longer cram a terrible song down our throats. It's an exciting time to be alive.
