Considering how badly damaged the liches on 9/11 were after falling 1300 feet, I am surprised that they were able to find any remains besides clothing.

The Long Island college hospital buildings were destroyed on 9/11?

Where did they bury the survivors?

"Gault said the fact that the body was in a tree line many very small pieces probably kept it from being spotted from the air."

Liches? I had no idea ancient, immortal undead mages had anything to do with 9/11. I suppose it WAS only a matter if time before Veccna sent his forces after us.

I still like the theory that they were joining the mile high club, but they were only at 2500 feet.

Snark aside, if I were the other guy in the plane and saw my pal sucked out of his seat to his death, I'd have a hard time keeping it together enough to land the plane.

Mainly because I am not a pilot, but still, that would be a mind fark to see.

Yeah, but you have to remember that liches crumble to dust when you kill them. Real people don't do that.

The downside is we can't just wait for this guy's Phylactery to spit out a new copy. The upside is at least he wasn't a lich.

BAD SUBBY. Your headline should have said he is dead, we will inform you if his condition changes.

There's a chance he just looked over, sighed, and thought, "Well, that just happened..." And nonchalantly landed. But it's unlikely.
 
2013-03-31 11:26:58 AM  
Local reports said that man who died was an experienced pilot who was being trained to fly the plane, which he had recently purchased.



Kinda doubting that since the dumbshiat wasn't strapped in.

No, you learn to English.

A lich is a powerful undead creature and you should be more aware of what they are, how they work, and how you might kill one. It could save your character's life one day.

In modern fantasy fiction, a lich (pron.: /ˈlɪtʃ/;[1] sometimes spelled liche, cognate to Dutch lijk and German Leiche, both meaning "corpse") is a type of undead creature. Often such a creature is the result of a transformation, as a powerful magician or king striving for eternal life uses spells or rituals to bind his intellect to his animated corpse and thereby achieve a form of immortality. Liches are depicted as being clearly cadaverous, their bodies desiccated or even completely skeletal. Liches are often depicted as holding power over hordes of lesser undead creatures, using them as soldiers and servants.

Unlike zombies, which are often depicted as mindless, part of a hivemind and/or under the control of some magician, a lich retains independent thought and is usually at least as intelligent as it was prior to its transformation. In some works of fiction, liches can be distinguished from other undead by their phylactery - an item of the Lich's choosing into which they imbue their soul, giving them immortality until the phylactery is destroyed.

Most of them probably weren't "liches" until they hit the ground, though, Mr. No-Humor-With-A-Thesaurus. Unless you're one of those idiot 9/11 Truthers, in which case I'd like to shiat in your mouth.

maybe one of them fell for the other.   or, one of them needed to get rid of the other.

Though normally spelled "lych" as in "lychgate", the gateway into a churchyard where the coffin rested on the way to the funeral. See also the German word for corpse, "Leichnam".
 
2013-03-31 12:07:59 PM  
They keep referring to "his body" but they don't actually say if he died or not, or when the coroner will have a cause of death, if he is in fact dead.

That's some fine reportin' there Lou.

Reach across, undo the other guy's straps, "What the ...?", nose over, negative G and it's done. You'd have to be damn sure of it working first time, though.

Thanks, from that article it was even more of a clusterfark than it seemed from the original article.  Neither the pilot nor the instructor was wearing  a seatbelt??  OTOH, the pilot did buy the  home-built plane from the family of the former owner who died in a plane crash.  Seems legit.

For even more S&Gs, read the comments from the law enforcement officer. Apparently the incident was in Bradley County "Due to the GPS coordinates and the pinging of the cellphone...."  THAT'S why we need to turn off our phones when we fly.
