    Hey there. I was just watching Titanic tonight, the one with Leo, and I'm puzzled about something he said.
    After Jack saved Rose from the railing, Roses fiance invited him to join them for dinner. When Jack was waiting for Rose at the bottom of the stairs, he kissed Rose on the hand and said, "I saw this on Nickelodion and always wanted to try it."

    Wait, WTF? This Titanic disaster took place around 1912 long before TV and before Nickelodion was ever dreamed up with! What the hell was Jack talking about then? Am I confused here? Did I misheard something? Anybody else catch this?

    Anyway, just saw it like half an hour ago and I was puzzled by his sentence. Nickelodian can't possibly be THAT old!

    Nickelodeons were movie theaters. It cost a nickel to see a movie.

    I was more puzzled when Rose said, "I don't know" and green slime fell on her head. WTF??

    I didn't catch the "IN A" part. All I heard was "in Nickelodeon". Now I know where the network got it's name from. :)
