to be fair, having worked with some interesting personnel in Malaysia... it probably went like this...

Malaysia: Tell us if you have any radar data related to our missing flight and give it to us.
Thailand: (thinking about the security implications of giving another country access to all of their radar data without any specific areas requested)... yeah, okay, that's not specific enough.

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...

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.

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:

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.

It sounds like Thailand didn't look at the data because they had no reason to, it's not a part of their normal work, not that they knew and held it back.  At least that's how I read it

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.

FabulousFreep: Anyone realize they haven't named any of the passengers yet? It could all be an elaborate Aprils fools joke. Probably isn't but it could be.


If by "they haven't named any of the passengers yet" you mean "they released the passenger manifest last Saturday" (PDF), then you are correct. However, you have a very strange way of phrasing things.

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.

But, she did.

NoahFenze: So what of the island people who say they saw a low flying plane with the description of Malaysia plates?


That was dimissed.  At the time they saw it, the plane would have been already out of fuel for over an hour.  If they did see anything, it may have been a search plane.

My theory is that Skynet has become sentient, it took over the plane remotely and flew it to one of its automated factories where the passengers will be converted into the first generation of Terminators.  Go on, prove me wrong.

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.
