    My great great grandfather was just 5 minutes late to board the Titanic ship.

    Thank God for my sake he missed it, else I wouldn't be here today.

    If he got on the ship, he'd have been a 3rd class passenger and likely died, or somehow got to America, meaning another 'me' would be American, not British lol.

    It's crazy to think how 5 minutes from ages ago has affected your whole existence. :eek::eek2::eek3::eek4:

    if he was 2 minutes late though, maybe the race to the ovaries would be different and it's your other sperm siblings that got there instead of you...
