Thank you for coming to fark to practice your ESL.  One correction, it's spelled "morans".

The fark is that supposed to mean?

I was joking about how they could get it out of there, dickhead.

I have a friend who's all into 9/11 conspiracies, and lately, the marathon bomb 'conspiracy'.  It's interesting just asking simple questions like "Please provide evidence for your assertions" and to be met with "the evidence was removed/taken/destroyed!" and "open your eyes, can't you see how the media/whatever is manipulated?"

He also has that "smartest guy in the room" complex, where he believes he is greatly more intelligent than he actually is.  He has a day trading "system" that only loses money in the long run, but he keeps going because every once in awhile he'll have a day where he's ahead.

I don't know, it's interesting.  Somewhere the ability to see logical conclusions becomes miswired, plus a sense of grandiosity and you have a conspiracy theorist.

Philbb: fusillade762: How does something like that go unnoticed in a busy city like that for over a decade?

The Bush administration hid parts all over the area, but somehow just forgot where they hid that one. I've had that happen with easter eggs. You look around and find most of them, but sometimes you just can't find that last one. I've even had egg hunts at the same place several years in a row, and sometimes one of the kids will find an egg we lost there years ago.



Get a marker and write the year on them next time. Yet another level of entertainment in future years!

YoOjo: huh, why do they need to demolish anything to get that thing out of there?
If it got there it can be removed via the same path. Just need to rent a crane, hook it to the landing gear, pull it out. Check the soil for body parts and random dna, all done.



Makes it sound like no-one in n.y. is narrower than 18 inches.

If it was planted, they'll figure it out soon enough. Every plane part has a unique SN so they know which line number it originally came from. When they swap a part from one plane to another, the part gets recertified and listed in the log of the airframe it went on. Kinda hard to just put a random scrap yard gear door somewhere.

They called 911 to report that they'd found "apparently damaged machinery," police said.

Does there need to be some sort of course that people must take to get people to understand when and when not to call the emergency number?

Not every part. Not even close. Some parts yes, but not every part. Can you imagine the paperwork nightmare that would create? Hell, not every part will have a part number on it either. I would imagine that a landing gear assembly would have some sort of serial attached to it but if this chunk of metal is a part that doesn't have that number on it then there might not be a way to tie it to a particular airplane.

There was no hijacking. The mosque used its secret tractor beam to pull those planes to their doom.  Surprise ending:  that landing gear is actually the left main gear from the Space Shuttle Columbia. The mosque used its death ray again in 2003 to get the first Israeli astronaut who was on the shuttle. The shuttle's orbit passed over New York, the damage was done, unnoticed (covered up) then the inevitable happened a few orbits later when it reentered over Texas. If you don't believe me, check out the prototype Space Shuttle Enterprise which is not coincidentally stored in New York. You can see for yourself. The left landing gear door of the Enterprise was modified for testing theories about the landing gear during the Columbia investigation. Then suddenly the investigators were ordered to ignore the landing gear and look at the leading edge of the wing. Who gave that order? Probably the same people who gave "President" Bush his orders. The same people who right now are making sure the serial numbers of that landing gear will match one of the 9/11 planes instead of the space shuttle.

If you had read the article then you would know that this part in question does indeed have a serial number stamped on it.

But then NYC couldn't destroy the mosque.

For farks sake, there is no mosque. It's a farking community center that's getting renovated... there's a room for prayer, but calling it a mosque is as misguided as calling the YMCA a Cathedral.



OK, smart guy, what ELSE does the 'C' stand for???
