SuperNinjaToad: duckpoopy: Oh no. I hope no Americans were on board. God Bless.

Why only Americans ya arrogant bastid? Is an American life worth more than a German?


While I agree with your point, "Germans" are probably not the best counter-example...

"not on board" could just mean missed the boarding time or changed mind after buying nonrefundable ticket stick with waiting for facts BEFORE saying it was attack by terrorists using stolen passports

I could not imagine the horror of somehow surviving the initial explosion and falling for a minute or so among the wreckage, body parts, fellow passengers...only to see the ground/ocean getting closer and closer, knowing that you have no way to slow down, and right below you is your death.

That's some mothafarkin' nightmare fuel right there!
 
2014-03-08 10:31:06 AM  

themunsterfullback: It was either mechanical or terrorism.  Latest reports have stated that there were people on board with stolen passports.  Which may hint towards the terrorist side of things. I don't know. Something fishy going on is all I got.


Unless there is some political conflict on that side of the world that I am not aware of, it seems somewhat odd to take some random flight out.

Not as it's being reported.  Neither the Austrian nor the Italian had even booked the flight, and both had reported their passports stolen recently.  Now to be fair, that doesn't necessarily mean anything.  They could have been used by other miscellaneous criminals for non-exploding reasons like drug trafficking and whatnot.

This. If some terrorist group had been responsible, they would have been crowing about it the instant it was reported, if not sooner. The general lack of terrorist groups crowing about their "great strike against [insert names here]) tends one to think that there was a catastrophic mechanical or technical failure of some sort aboard the aircraft.

Well, depends on how you define "recently". The Austrian had his passport stolen in Thailand two years ago, and the Italian, currently living in Thailand, had his passport stolen a year ago. Still, highly suspicious that there were at least two people on board with stolen passports, and both passports were stolen in Thailand.

Not all groups claim responsibility.  One possibility is some group is waiting for confirmation that aircraft wreckage was found.  Or maybe it was aliens.  I'm not saying it was aliens, but it was aliens.

DoctorCal: walktoanarcade: I'm putting you on ignore

Whenever I read someone's posts on fark and it contains a "welcome to ignore" in it and it's without irony, I take it to mean that the person probably won't be entirely ignoring that person because if it were that easy, they'd simply ignore them, the old way. Instead, I picture someone who has another account and uses that other one to sneak peeks at the offending words from the offending handle.  Maybe that's what I'd do if I couldn't handle the Internet.


I just assume it means that the ignorer realizes that they are one post away, at most, from losing the argument.

Yeah, I changed my mind on someone, and hey, you're not ruining my day; I remember what I said.

I've revised my ways because I need to focus. :)  And I am trying to be more tolerant, but sometimes it isn't worth it.   I wouldn't force myself to listen to a brat scream on a bus, so why should I feel bad about occasionally shutting people out?


I have no duty to read anything anyone has to say and the obverse is true, beyond the links everything is a bonus and we should be as nice as possible.

Not likely. It's hard to hit things at that altitude, and it's actually pretty hard to bring down airliners.

Meanwhile, MH370 is flying again right now over the same area authorities are looking for the flight from 24 hours earlier (according to FlightAware).

Even though it's 3am in that time zone right now, I doubt anyone is sleeping on that flight right now.

2 am MYT/ 10 am PST Press Release    So far nothing official about any wreckage being found.

"Sudden and complete loss like this is usually one of a couple things. Either the plane was shot down, or it exploded. Since it's a newer plane, the odds of a catastrophic equipment failure to cause that is very unlikely. " - cuzsis

Which is what I had been coming to the conclusion of as well. However, both Austria & Italy have noted that the persons on the manifest from their country were not on the plane. Both of these people are alive and well but both have had their passport stolen within the last 2 years.

So, the other option is two guys were able to kill the pilots and fly the plane straight down, nose diving it as deep as it could.

There have been oil slicks in the range of 6 to 9 miles long observed in the areas of where the last communications from the plane had been from.

It's hard to say why exactly. Seems like an explosion would cause a lot of items that could float to do so in those same areas. (But I'd concede that a nose dive into the ocean would also cause it to break and possibly explode as well.)

Only time will tell.

i am tempted to discount the whole stolen passport as attack on the plane since most airports slide the passport through an electronic reader that then displays passport holder information sometimes including height weight picture travel history and where the terrorism pucker factor is higher arrest records and most times once a passport is stolen when it is scanned it will show lost/stolen status
