Mr_Crink: So famed aeronautical engineer Courtney Love's theory was right after all? They found Oil and Plane?


Yeah...looking at this new "awesome amazing best lead we have" satellite image, it looks like Courtney Love wasn't all that out of line with her image.  If any of you actually browsed TOMNOD to help with the search, it was extremely tedious and everything started to look the same after a bit.  ANYTHING that looked remotely different from the endless waves & clouds was to be tagged in the system and submitted for review.  Her only real mistake was going public with hers before it could be reviewed & verified as something of interest.

The Malaysians aren't the ones producing any of this so there might be some truth to it after all.
At least a better chance of it being factual.

why did CNN just break into their own CNN Int'l coverage to interject their own useless fourth-hand reporting?

ransack.: Ivo Shandor: 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 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.

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?

GDubDub: One of my highschool-mates and 25 year friend flew P-3 Orions.

He always wanted to be a pilot.  Trouble is he is 6' 7".  Kind of limited his options.

/CSB



7 feet 2 inches. And he used to play basketball before he became a pilot. Never too old or too tall to follow your dreams, Roger.

sanriosucks: Planes are always found in the last place you look.

Especially if the last place you look is the first place you look after having access to Thai radar data that tracked the plane to that place.


Of coarse it's the always in the last place you look.  You don't keep looking for it after you find it.
