The Weather Channel Raises Titanic, Needs Your Help

History + The Weather Channel = Nerd Nirvana. As part of their new series, When Weather Changed History, The Weather Channel is recreating the sinking of the Titanic "on a boat and in a pool" and they need your help, Chicago. A casting call has gone out looking for an "older male-Captain Smith-40's-60's preferably with a White Beard" and "5 females and 5 other males to be the officers of the boat and passengers." We'd go but we're still haunted by our own experiences as extras in films (including a Lindsay Lohan movie), so it's up to you, readers, to answer the call. Let us know if you get picked.
In another Weather Channel-related tidbit, a group of investors including NBC Universal purchased the channel, so expect to see more Jim Cantore disaster updates on NBC soon.
