Remember all those Twitterers who didn't know who Paul McCartney was when he performed at the Grammy Awards back in February? Well, we're guessing there's a lot of overlap between that crowd and the several people who've recently posted tweets marking their astonishment to learn that the Titanic was a real ship that actually sank, killing hundreds of people.

That's right, the hype surrounding the release of "Titanic 3D," a new Titanic mini-series and several new documentary specials about the disaster has apparently sparked a historical awakening for several tweeters. Luckily, a large sampling of the tweets have been collected and posted on tumblr by a genius who describes himself only as @stefan. The full list is appended below.

In the hopes of clearing up any more misinformation, we'd like to add these crucial facts to the Titanic knowledge base: (***SPOILER ALERT***)

-- James Cameron had nothing to do with the actual sinking of the ship. He can do a lot with CGI, but sending an iceberg back in time to 1912 is not one of them.

-- Leonardo DiCaprio is alive and not, as some believe, resting in an icy watery grave at the bottom of the Atlantic.  

-- Celine Dion did not bravely sing on the deck of the Titanic as it sank.

-- Sex in a steamy Model T just hours before one's unexpected death is, in fact, a good-ish way to go.
