vertiaset: Ummm, apparently Farkers no longer care. If they did, Tatsuma would be giving us all the details he was fed by his Israeli handlers and this thread would have a thousand posts by now instead of just 34.


And one of his "handlers" dictating how we should read and respond to his posts.

Zerg-rushed by trolls.

*Tinfoil hat ON*

If you think on it, maybe the planes falling down were full of iranians trying to flee the nation. Maybe even some protesters desperately trying to run away.

*Tinfoil hat OFF*

Then again, maybe I'm just talking crazy.

Hey CygnusDarius! Nice to see a familiar face here. I didn't see anything about planned protests in Mexico. Wearing green tomorrow? I'll be at the capitol in Denver at 10 if any other Denver farkers are headed down. July 30th is just around the corner and then comes Aug. 2nd. It will be a busy week in Iran.

The Iranian-mexicans might be moving in Mexico City, but here, we have another war to fight (we're still struggling for answers about the day care center fire), but yeah, I will be wearing green (and white too, the color of the day care struggle).

As I consider myself both concerned & well-informed about international events, I'm shocked to discover here in this thread that Baconnaise is kosher. As instructed, I will go to City Hall at noon tomorrow to protest. Too bad about all that death.

craxyd: What exactly is being protested and by whom does anyone know?


Apparently you're an idiot who doesn't care if you don't automatically know.

From the jerkoffs asshole response, I think it's some sort of protest against Iranian air safety programs.

Pilot Kosmosa: Okay found this http://www.airsafe.com/events/airlines/fsu.htm

Number of flights in Former Soviet Union = "UNKNOWN", but the FLE (Full Loss Equivalent), which divides total fatalities by number of incidents, is 24.7. The worst FLE among US airlines is 10.08 for AA.

What this means:

1) Historically, your chances of surviving if you experience a crash are much worse on a Russian airline than on an American airline.

2) Without figures on total number of flights, you can conclude exactly nothing about which group (FSU airlines or American airlines) has a better safety record.
