A seafloor event on the ring of fire? What next, a bribe in Chicago?

Sure, why not?  Might as well throw that in the heap.

Seismic seafloor anomaly?  That means it was shot down by Red October.

This means Tom Cruise will eventually star in the movie, doesn't it?

No, it just means Malaysian Airlines is going to be sued by Co$ too.

Yeah, there's no chance that has anything to do with it.  The god damned world trade centers collapsing registered, what a 2 or thereabouts?

That said, this is still a crazy ass mystery.

For some damn reason when I was drunk when this plane went missing, I said to myself that this was strange and that I should pay attention. Nothing that has come out of this has made a lick of sense.

I can't wait for the movie. I hope the guy from Harold and Kumar go to White Castle plays the co-pilot.

fusillade762: Methane bubbles.

Now you've got me trying to remember a bad 1960s-ish SF novel I read where the oceans started emitting gas. Ships sent to investigate were destroyed, possibly fell to their doom where the plume of gas left no water. Lower elevations of earth became uninhabitable because the air wasn't breatheable. I think Denver survived. ID, anyone?

For a better old fashioned SF novel of oceanic destruction over which no plane could fly, see John Wyndham's The Kraken Wakes.

Not true, it's just that none of the teams have reported back.

Maybe the Atlanteans (Namor or Aquaman) were responsible.

Did you make that? Because if so I'd love to know where I could get that Navaid layer for my Google Earth...

I'm kind of surprised, you'd think the energy from a surface impact, even of a jetliner nose-diving, would attenuate into nothing by the time it reaches the sea floor.  The depth in that part of the ocean is no more than 100 meters, but that wave is still going to have to penetrate layers of varying density (temperature) and the sediment on the sea floor, which would essentially act as a backing material to prevent that pressure wave from reaching the seismic plate below.  According to this, the sediment thickness (or depth to "acoustic basement) in that part of the ocean is much, much thicker than the actual ocean depth.

And U.S. scientists are already skeptical about these Chinese claims.  That's (possibly) twice now in just a few days that China has been publicly wrong about their "findings."  It's kind of unlike them to do that, and you'd think after that "debris" turned out to be two boats moored together they'd be more careful.  The part of me that has read bad Tom Clancy thrillers wants to say that maybe the Chinese were messing around with hacking commercial airliners remotely.  Maybe they're trying to throw people off the scent....

At this point is that idea even that crazy?

At this point if someone told me that plane was crashed on purpose to populate society 1000 years in the future I'd believe.  It's a reasonable as anything else floating around.

I'm with you on the Chinese claims. However, I remember somewhere that Air France 447 was detected by Submarines or SOSUS (or whatever they're calling it these days)

I think it's a psy-op to traumatize people who hate conspiracy theorizing. You can tell because Alex Jones has refused to speculate about it all week.

b2theory: I'm with you on the Chinese claims. However, I remember somewhere that Air France 447 was detected by Submarines or SOSUS (or whatever they're calling it these days)


Right, but submarines and sonobuoys are both in the water, they're not seismic monitors.  The acoustic wave from an impact is going through water in that case.  In order to be picked up by a seismic monitor, (one on the other side of an island), it has to travel to the sea floor, through sediment, and into a seismic plate, and transfer enough energy into that plate to be picked up however many miles away and stand out among the underlying backscatter.  I'm not a physicist by any means, but in the field for which I am currently going to school, I have to have an above-average knowledge of physics, particularly acoustics.

Water is an excellent conductor of acoustic energy.  Sediment and rock, not so much.

Really?


Anyway, I believe a "seismic event" would just be disturbances in the water.

Here is my theory.

The plane was taken over remotely, this was a dry run for a much larger take over of multiple planes one day.  Hundreds of large missiles in the sky at once. 9/11 part 2?

It's not the least crazy theory that's been floated the last few days.

I have the obvious answer:  Flight 370 was brought down by global warming, obviously.

I read on another forum that the flight path runs along the borders of flight information regions  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_information_region  mean a. made the plane very hard to detect and b. whoever was flying knew damn well sure what they were doing.

Not part two. You've got to give it an original title, like "the Zombie plane disaster"
