A kid in 1912 could also enjoy a great breakfast since cornflakes had already been invented by William Kellogg in 1906. Too bad you would have to wait until 1941 to enjoy breakfast with a bowl full of Cheerios. If you wanted Froot Loops, you would have to wait until 1963 to have that sugary breakfast treat in your bowl before school.

After a delicious bowl of cornflakes in the morning you could go outside and play baseball, which was invented over 60 years before, and in 1912 the Boston Red Sox won their second World Series title and went on to win three more in 1914, 1915 and 1918. After the 1918 World Series, the owner of the Boston Red Sox, Harry Frazee, sold their best player, Babe Ruth, to the New York Yankees. Babe went on to have an incredible career with the Bronx Bombers, and many fans blame the 86 years between World Series wins for the Boston Red Sox on the sale of Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The Curse of the Bambino, as the sale of Babe Ruth to the Yankees is often referred to as, was not lifted until 2004 when the Red Sox finally won another World Series title. That was a very long wait from the beginning of one century to the beginning of another.

In 1912, one of the most famous passenger ocean liners of all time, the Titanic, set off on its maiden voyage. On April 10, 1912, the Titanic set out on its very first trip to New York City across the Atlantic Ocean from South Hampton, England. On a clear, dark, and cold night just four days later on April 14, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the deep dark North Atlantic Sea. Many thought the Titanic to be lost forever, but on September 1, 1985, Dr. Robert Ballard and his crew found the Titanic in its final resting place on the ocean floor. That’s seventy three years after an iceberg escorted the great ocean liner under the cold clear icy water. This year will mark 100 years since the Titanic set out on its maiden and only voyage. In 1985 (the year the Titanic was rediscovered on the bottom of the ocean), if you were a Red Sox fan, you still had 19 years to wait until your team would win another World Series.

Some of the World' richest people were passengers on Titanic's maiden voyage
In 1912, the RMS Titanic and her sister ships, the RMS Olymic and RMS Britannic, were the largest ships to have ever been built.

The Titanic was well-known around the world for being an unsinkable ship

The world was shocked to hear that the Titanic sank
Five days after the Titanic sank, this photo was taken of the iceberg that most likely collided with the "unsinkable ship."
