It fits with the ghost plane theory. But I'm still holding out for Iranian Mossad joint operation to assassinate those two asylum seekers before they released a bio terror on the world that they stole from some top secret lab in Persia.

It's worth noting that even if this turns out to be MH370 debris that they find, they'll have to do a reverse trajectory based on currents and wind/wave drift to get an area to look for the main debris like the black boxes.  And it still might take a long time to find those, if it happens at all (remember AF447 took 2 years to recover the black boxes).

Maybe it's time to re-think the whole "Pilot and/or crew able to turn off location-tracking signal generating devices" thing..

Seriously... Had every plane been configured since 9/11 with imbedded satellite uplink geolocation stuff, this would have been a non-issue to locate.  The engines are doing it now... Why is is so hard to add on a simple GPS chip that virtually every smartphone has on it and encode that data with the other telemetry that's being sent up already?

Part of the reason why it took so long was because, I believe, the fuselage with the FDR was two miles below sea level.

It took a bit of math to figure it out, but based on the Wikipedia entry for Boeing 777s; the plane's wing would be 29m long. So if it is part of the plane, it could be a majority of 1 wing or part of the fuselage.

There is a lot of floating debris out there in the ocean.  It is a dumping ground.  So don't get your hopes up that any particular piece of debris is the flight.  Chances are some debris will wash ashore in Western Australia in a few months or years and that will confirm that it went into the water somewhere between Australia and South Africa.

I hope the plane didn't hit a whale when it crashed into the ocean. Because that would be sad. Whales are magnificent, intelligent creatures, but still, they can't be expected to get out of the way when a Boeing 777 plunges out of the sky. It would happen too fast.

Cargo containers. smaller debris pushed together when the picture was taken so it looks like a larger object, tsunami debris from 2011 or 2004, it could be anything.    Static pictures show a particular moment and the way the sunlight falls, the position of the debris together, and aquatic life or oil can all create the illusion of size and complexity.Tons and tons of material goes into the water and if it gets trapped in currents it can remain indefinitely so we don't know what is there until someone gets a good view. Remember the Chinese had a good image showing something and it disappeared by the time anyone searched there.

Wife asked where it might be. I told her most likely intact, since if it crashed, debris would be all over. I told her I thought if it ran out of fuel the result would be tyhe same, since if a jet landed in the water, passengers would flee like rats from a ship.
Insofar as family members grandstanding for the press, and saying the government is hiding the truth, yeah, what's the point in that?
I remember when I was little, 35-40 years ago, seems like gossly overloaded ferries were going down left and right. If the government can't manage that, what makes you think they'd care about a jet?
Seems like overall, their #1 commodity is people, and as you know, you gotta keep Vaal happy.

It fascinates me how people get on the major news networks to declare that they KNOW exactly what happened...and then completely contradict themselves.

"The only way that this could have happened--the absolute only way--is for a deliberate action by the pilot." Five seconds later: "But there's always that ten--twenty percent chance of something else."

I just listened to some supposed expert state that if the navigation system was disabled, there's no way the aircraft could have flown to where they now believe it crashed. Because there is no way you can program a head in and altitude manually. And god forbid there actually have been a mistake on whoever put in the heading. Nope, impossible! It just has to be a terrorist act! Or...pilot suicide. But we just KNOW, damnit!

We should have explosives on all cars, so they blow up when they crash like they do in the movies. That would make people interested in car crashes, too.

Data: Possibly Captain, but sensor readings are inconclusive. However the amount of debris is consistent with an aircraft with that configuration. Perhaps if I user an enhanced narrow EM band I can gather more information.

Picard: Make it so, Mr. Data. I want a positive identification after the next commercial break.

Data: I will do my best, sir. But Captain, give the amount of time that has elapsed and the pattern of debris, if the wreckage is MH370, it is unlikely that there are any survivors.

Picard: Understood. Dr, Crusher, report to my quarters! You have the bridge, Number One

Riker: (grins and winks at the Captain)

I heard they recovered a camera that belonged to one of the passengers and found this as the last photo in it:

That's the one from last Friday 7 miles WSW from Pulau Perak  just where the Thai radar says it should be, a ship reported seeing floating luggage, and various other hints.

Malaysia took a cursory glance at the area and said NOPE.

WTF? -_-

SirEattonHogg: I really hope they don't find the plane for sometime so Farkers can post a pic from Langoliers or from this obscure movie:


The 'Millennium' ones bother me because (at least in the original story) a major plot point was that the crashes had to look absolutely normal in our timeline. The passengers who were taken to the future were replaced with bodies made up to look like them, right down to the dental records. Of the two, Langoliers is the correct reference for MH370 (although The Twilight Zone would also be acceptable).

I'm sticking with the Rogue Penguin theory.

I didn't like that episode because it had no actual interesting resolution, much like the value of Pi.

If this is the plane, all that stuff about the way stations and satellite pings north was wrong?

someonelse: I feel kinda dumb for asking this, but: Courtney Love wasn't really the first to spot this, was she? She was retwittering somebody else's thing, right?


Correct, she tweeted a picture that had been posted on Reddit, with some of her own MS Paint notations.

Because there isn't one.

I really like Stephen King's books and he seems like a nice guy and I'd love to meet him, but honestly I think he's over-rated and I don't think he'd be offended by that.

Like everyone in America knows who Stephen King is. But how many know who Clive Barker or even Michael Chriton is? Isaac Asimov? Can the average American even name ten fiction authors?

Maybe part of it is that he just wrote so many thousands of pages that there is at least one memorably horrifying moment somewhere for everybody? I read It and The Stand when I was like 10 and my mom is a big fan too and she knew there was a gangbang in It and she let me read it anyway!

I don't think Stephen King is scary, but he does have a very good sense of irony and tragedy. I haven't read much by him, but he has material like It, and Pet Cemetary which to me are kind of cheap, but then he has The Body (Stand By Me), Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and Misery (Okay, okay, okay. I didn't read them but I did see the movie)....I appreciate what I've read, not because I find the situations scary, but I think he has a good handle on how irrational we can be and our basal emotions are not happiness and love, but fear and violence.
