Mythbusters Take on Titanic: Jack Didn't Have to DieS

In a new episode of Mythbusters, Adam and Jamie decide to re-enact the end of Titanic. Sort of: They're not in the North Atlantic, and they're not dressed in 1912 garb. But they do figure out a way to share the board, and increase its buoyancy by tying Rose's life vest underneath. Still, as James Cameron points out: "The script says Jack dies. He has to die." Yes, he does, because Celine needs to sing about how the heart will go on. But also this whole movie has to die. Tit Antics, as I like to call it, was never good to begin with and just saying someone's name over and over is not quality dialogue. Also this experiment is 15 years late.
