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

So what you're saying is there's now definitive proof that Cthulhu is involved.

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

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.

What if this whole thing is just a viral marketing campaign for a reboot of Lost?

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?

Radak: jbc: I read that as Scientologists. Time for a break.

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.

Methane bubbles. That's supposedly how the Bermuda Triangle does it.
