If you set aside the speculation and conspiracy theories and just focus on the facts, I think it's pretty clear what happened.

12:21 - MH370 Departs

1:07 - The pilot decide to commit suicide and turns off the transponder

1:17 - The Iranians with the stolen passports force their way into the cabin to hijack the plane, the instruct the pilot to disable the radio and turn the plane around

2:21 - Chinese separatist terrorists force their way into the cockpit and overpower the Iranians and the flight crew, they instruct the pilot to descend below radar.

2:48 - Mechanical failure in both engines causes loss of power. Shards of metal fly off and damage the tail

3:12 - A bomb planted by al Quaida explodes in the baggage compartment causing rapid depressurization of the cabin.

3:48 - Aliens arrive and abduct the passengers and crew. The plane is vaporized, which is why no wreckage has been found.

parasol: zimbomba63: schief2: freetomato: Until a couple of weeks ago, I'd never heard of the Andaman Islands.  I saw this recently, and am now pretty fascinated.

That Pandit guy mentioned in the article wrote a book ('The Sentinelese'), short but fascinating. Unfortunately also a biatch to find.

<i>Other unintentional encounters include on August 2, 1981,a Hong Kong freighter navigating the choppy waters of the Bay of Bengal ran aground on a submerged coral reef. The ship, called the Primrose, was hopelessly stuck. The crew stayed on their boat for a few days, when the saw native people advancing towards their ship, armed with spears, bows and arrows .The captain made a distress call via radio and the crew were airlifted to safety by helicopter.

The last recorded contact with the Sentinelese was in 2006, when the Sentinelese archers killed two fishermen who were fishing illegally within range of the island. The archers later drove off, with a hail of arrows, the helicopter that was sent to retrieve the bodies.</i>

Hard. Core.

Well, the next helicopter they send, should be a military one, with a 20mm Vulcan gun.  That would be perfect to give the old Sentinelese archers a taste of the 21st century.  Then, we'll see how "hard core" the survivors are.

I sometimes have encounters with people whose simple acts of human kindness restore my faith in the human species.  Woven into the multiple "missing jet" FARK threads is a recurring concern for the fate of the passengers/crew and their families.

Here is hoping this post is the most ugly thing I read, and that you proffer, today.

I'd ask "who peed in your cornflakes" but "you were reincarnated from the anthrax-laden blanket-giving American settlers, weren't you?" seems more fitting.


Excuse me!  I forgot we were dealing with a simple, peaceful people, you know the old "noble savage" trope, who were forced to kill the fishermen, because of their aggressive net casting.  The helicopter thing.  Simply, the pastoral people misunderstanding the intentions of the aggressive helicopter, which was attempting to aggressively retrieve the bodies of the fishermen.  The islanders might have thought it was there to aggressively take their sacred mojo away or something, so their violence was perfectly acceptable. Where there any white guys involved?  Ah, then you can sit back and with a satisfied look, because it's RACISM.  And if there weren't any white guys involved, well maybe, they built the helicopter, so naturally, RACISM.

Anthrax!  I thought the myth said it was smallpox?  American settlers!  I thought the myth said it was a British officer?  How am I to feel chastised, when you can even get your accusatory myths correct?  You need to up your game.

How come you never see travel brochures for North Sentinel Island?  Sounds just like the type of place for people, who think taking hiking trips on the Iran-Iraq border is a good idea.

It just so happens that the copilot was a big fan of American television. He among many others were very impressed with the drama True Detective. But as the series wore on, the character of Rustin Cohle began to trouble him. He decided to send fan letters to Matthew McConaughey, asking him how much of Cohle's philosophy he believed. He started confiding in these one-way missives a myriad of thoughts on the nature of the universe he had not considered before - emergent oppressive truths... that the Universe was not uncaring or unfeeling, but instead pestilential and inimical. He shared his realization that the interstellar aeons hungered for humanity's myriad bits of flesh and spirit, and it was only a matter of time before the horrors of the Outside spread globally across the planet. Receiving no reply, he lapsed into despondency. A new thought emerged... a plan; the hardest part would be taking out the pilot and long time friend...

Mr. McConaughey, like the rest of the world, was caught up in this alarming situation with the missing jet liner. He sat down one night to once again watch television coverage of the speculation and breaks in the case, when he absently began pawing through his copious amounts of unread letters. One letter caught his eye...

Now, embarrassed by the ravings of an obsessed fan, the McConaissance soldiers on, an actor's mask hiding the pain of his new-found knowledge.

At least, that's what Sylvia Brown told me.

There was no misunderstanding. Their lawn...you should get off it.

Alternatively, you could go in there and nuke the place from orbit if you wanted to be a total dick about it.

Or you could gas them and put them all to sleep and abduct a few for experiments before returning them. I'll bet they'd have some wild stories to tell the folks when they get back home!

I think there was a last minute scheduling change and they cancelled the flight, and they're just trying to avoid giving the passengers a refund.

All the passengers are still in line at the ticket counter trying to get rebooked or reimbursed, waiting for the one cranky and inefficient representative to come back from her smoke break.
