Can news outlets stop doing NEWS FLASH for every damn "unnamed source" and ridiculous rumor thrown out?  About 64% of the information given out has turned out to be horseshiat.

Fark It: 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?


I like how previously, Farkers were saying the Chinese couldn't be wrong with their info and assistance because of their fear of "loss of face".  A real deep analysis of Chinese culture apparently (like any govt, Western or inscrutable oriental, likes to be embarrassed by releasing wrong info).  And now, it's the Chinese only seem to have released wrong info because of a "conspiracy" backed by the Chinese.

How about the most obvious possibility that the Chinese, along with the Malaysians, are just simply acting like idiots in this case?  How about that?

I mean, it's not like the US govt has a monopoly on ham-fisted clumsy attempts to solve situations which turn out incorrect.

This just keeps getting more bizarre.

After the transponders were switched off the plane climbed to 45000 ft and some time later descended to 23000 ft.  The 777 is only rated for 43100 ft and risks depressurization above that altitude.  Could the person flying the plane have flown high enough to "pop" the pressure seals, and kept it up there long enough to  make 230+ Payne Stewarts out of the entire cabin and crew, and then leveled out lower than normal where the plane could re pressurize?

Shiat, this could be the Langoliers

I didn't see it, but I read the novel on which it's based.  Much of the time I was reading it I was thinking "this reads like a screenplay".  I don't recall the details but there were numerous characteristics of the work that made it seem like something someone (presumably the author, Varley) wanted to turn into a movie.

 Well, now Malaysian officials are apparently claiming that they think it was deliberately flown to avoid radar detection, and the Malaysian PM is holding a press conference at 1:30 am eastern time about it.
 
2014-03-15 01:06:00 AM  
Meh. This plane vanishing is the tail wagging the dog again. Something else is going on that, if we all weren't distracted by the weirdness of MH370's disappearance, we'd freak out or be pissed off even more. I'm too lazy to figure out what, because the list of things that do that is nearly endless. But for some reason, I'm concerned by this turn of events. Spin can be deadly.

Or...maybe it's aliens. Yeah. Aliens.

My heart goes out to the families of the 200+ folks aboard that plane. Not knowing sucks even more than knowing sometimes.

Maybe the aliens are benevolent. Lord knows humans generally aren't.

seismic event's relevance discounted:
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/03/14/malaysia-airline s- search/6409061/

(in particular from that article...)
"Benz said tremors of that size are a daily occurrence in the region, refuting theMorning Post's claim. Other earthquake experts said such seismic activity is unlikely to be caused by a plane crash."


Malaysians say hijack most probable event:

2014-03-15 01:23:30 AM  
Could this whole thing have been caused by a computer glitch related to a bug caused by trying to account for Daylight Saving Time?
Computer shuts down pressurization and all but essential flight services due to not knowing what to do.
Pilot is in the loo at the time, co-pilot is doing a crossword.
They just glance at the instruments and smile at each other.  In the meantime, the de-pressurization knocks them unconscious from hypoxia.
Maybe even if they had realized what was going on, the full-face oxygen mask only works for a little while.
