This is in the spirit of the What is a Word/Phrase™ series started by JLee with a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles, and the likewise inspired What is a Number™ series.


If a number conforms to a special rule, I like to call it a Titanic Number™. Find out when a number is called a Titanic Number™ and when it is called a Non-Titanic Number™.
