Smelly Pirate Hooker: ZeroPly:

This is the only well written theory I have seen so far:

http://www.wired.com/autopia/2014/03/mh370-electrical-fire/

This.


I remarked on this theory on another board but for the "route was programmatically  changed" / "Transponders were disabled before last voice contact" arguments seemed to weigh against this argument. I still feel we don't know enough to rule out multi-system failure.

Personally I don't think data coming from Malaysia/Thailand is consistent enough to draw the hijack theory (yet). I'm open to new information changing my mind.  I'd like to hear from an actual science angle about what may have "gone wrong" rather than immediately beating the "terrur-ism!" drum.  Electrical issues / technological or partial failure of support systems has some historical precedent in passenger flight.

Every few days certain contexts of this narrative have changed, and I find it remarkable that no credible leaks of international intel data point to a group preparing to do anything this big. If such a group did mount a hijacking/suicide mission, they've failed miserably to communicate their political statement/final wishes/demands. Did they hijack and then oops the plane?
Conceivable.

But right now, EVERYTHING is just about conceivable.

 I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you bring back the plane now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

ZeroPly: TrixieDelite: I've had to stop listening to CNN as their intrepid reporters ask people who have flown airplanes what might have happened to this plane. They end each segment with, "And we'll have much more on the missing Malaysian Airline, right after this." And then they come back to their sorry panel and ask hypothetical questions based on nothing at all.

They really need to spice things up with this non-story. Maybe have the panelists do an interpretive dance of their ideas, or invite Johnny from Airplane to come make a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl...

This is the only well written theory I have seen so far:

I read the article and a few people did come up with why it may not be plausible but it sounds better and more logical than any other speculative ideas.

Reminds me of the time I was on a bus in Thailand, and a hot chick sat down across from me. All I could think was "Don't pop a boner, don't pop a boner".

But, she did.

/Shamelessly stolen joke


My Thai girlfriend says that a small penis shouldn't matter in a loving relationship. She's right, but I still wish she didn't have one.

/I used the words "my and "girlfriend" in the same sentence.

There never was a plane. This is an elaborate hoax by a hacker creating phony records to get us looking for a plane that doesn't exist.
 
2014-03-18 05:33:06 PM  
So nobody has any farking clue what happened to the plane, and the link to the article doesn't provide any more actual details other than possibilities and speculation?

And the video in the link has nothing to do with that information?

Prank Call of Cthulhu: Malaysia's flight control guys were all like, "OMG, there's a problem with MH370's radar track!" and the Malaysian government was all like, "The radar track? What is it?" And Thailand was all, "It's a series of time-ordered coordinates designating the location of the plane over a specific interval, but that's not important now," and then they spent 10 days giggling about their terribly witty answer before they realized Malaysia was totes serial.

Gabrielmot: Let's be fair here... without *some* narrowing down of the data as to where they want to look, Thailand would be crazy to give out all of their data. -That's a national security nightmare. -You're basically telling the *entire* world where you look and what kinds of things you look for. If you aren't monitoring that area *at all* or no one is actively looking over that radar data and missed a big freaking plane where it shouldn't be... you are just telling the rest of the world... Yeah, my backdoor is unlocked and I'm not home between the hours of 6-8PM...

2014-03-18 06:38:56 PM  

Angela Lansbury's Merkin: To be fair, it took how many days for Malaysia to officially admit the plane had changed course and flown west?  Until then, the story was it was lost while heading on a NW track over Vietnam, and likely in the South China Sea.  Thailand wouldn't have thought to review radar tracks heading the wrong way, and which crossed Malaysia and should have had better coverage from Malaysia's own radar.

That said, anyone familiar with Thailand knows they have just about 0 interest in international events that aren't directly affecting Thailand.  They are surprisingly insular, considering how important the country is a travel and shipping hub.


Its not too late to make a colony out of Thailand.

Actually, in a perfect world, ignorance and intolerance such as yours wouldn't exist. Calling someone a pedophile and suggesting they be subjected to violent physical assault simply because they enjoy watching a children's cartoon, shows you're misinformed, thoughtless, moronic, hateful, narrow-minded and outright a terrible person who is not fit to use Fark, and should probably curl up in the corner of your mother's basement and never attempt to talk to another human being ever again, for fear of being exposed for the hate filled bigot you really are.

While this website has its share of trolls and morons, it has a very large community of open minded people, who by large are intelligent, insightful, funny, enlightened, and have a positive outlook on life.

More importantly, this is Fark.com - A website dedicated to the weird, the wonderful, and the outright absurd, where pretty much anything goes with a double topping of snark and silly humor. So someone genuinely being hateful and wanting another person on this website to be physically harmed, simply because they enjoy a television show about talking cartoon animals.. well, I can only finish by saying, grow the fark up.

2014-03-18 07:29:05 PM  
I've hesitated bringing this up for a number of days now, because I know some of you are going to mock me for saying it.  But, here goes anyway.

I'm a natural expert in the ancient and mystical art of reading tea bags.  The practice itself hinges on two primary, inalienable properties of the universe.  First, in a natural state of being, matter and energy exist in a very uniform and predictable fashion.  Second, the effects of even a tiny fluctuation in that regular behavior can often be observed from vast distances away, kind of like the butterfly effect, but less drastic.  The idea is, when observing a tea bag, it is a reflection of everything that has ever happened since the beginning of time, and by paying careful attention to nuances in how you expect it to appear versus it's actual state, you can deduce the events from the past that lead up to that moment.

Sorry for the dissertation, but I find it helps give people some insight and perspective into this craft if I spend a little time up front educating readers about my skills.  So, that being said, it just so happens that a little over a week ago, I attended a fantastic gay orgy, and needless to say, there was tea bagging going on everywhere.  At some point in the night after the poppers starting wearing off, the magnificent scrotum of a very handsome middle eastern gentleman caught my attention.  You see, unlike most of the other members of the orgy whose scrotums were perfectly shorn, this fellow's sack was covered in long, dark glorious pubic hairs.  And yet, glorious as it was, I detected that something was off.

Accounting for age, ethnicity, a rough estimation of the tensile strength of his pubes, as well as other factors, I determined that several people of authority, perhaps the pilots, managed to bring aboard the plane several innocuous chemicals that when mixed together, produced a noxious gas that incapacitated most of the passengers very quickly.  The perpetrators themselves used simple homemade gas masks to shield themselves from the effects.  Those who didn't die quickly were taken out by hand.  Nobody had time to even attempt to make a cellphone call, once the chemicals were mixed, it was a matter of seconds before the entire cabin was filled.  There was simply not enough time for anyone to react.

The plane was very purposely flown so as to avoid detection, the satellite data was a bit of a miscalculation apparently, but overall, the methods used kept the plane fairly well hidden from everyone.  From there, things started getting hot and heavy at the orgy and I became very, very distracted if you know what I mean, so I wasn't able to ascertain much more information about this plane and its passengers.  Some of the details above are a bit fuzzy, but in the end, I think I was still able to get across the point.

SpaceButler: I think it's pretty clear at this point that modern science has no answer to the mystery of MH370.  It's time to go back to older, more time-tested techniques, like numerology.

Flight 370 on March 8, 2014.
IBM made a series of mainframes called System/370.
On March 8, 1971, IBM announced their new System/370 mainframe, the Model 135.
The Jewish-Roman Wars ended in 135 CE.
Mossad hijacked flight 370 to attack the Muslim nation of Malaysia.  QED.


Half-Life 3 confirmed!
