"And if they're indestructible, why don't they make the WHOLE AIRPLANE out of the same stuff?"

"And what's with these airline peanuts?"

The term 'black box' is just too ingrained.  It won't be going away.

China's Liberation Daily reported that three people on board had heard the signals, which were not recorded as they came suddenly.

I hate when you're trying to record.... something..... and it comes suddenly.

Any comedian that starts off a routine with a flight joke without irony needs a hard kick in the privates.

The term black box also refers to any device (usually programming subroutines) where the person is to not consider the mechanism that goes on within the box. It's a device which does its operation as if by magic. Array goes in, double sorted array comes out, nevermind how it works.

Don't know if that idea can apply to flight recorders.

I dunno...

When Kennedy was assassinated Lenny Bruce went on with his performance that night and started off by standing silently... then saying "Boy is Vaughn Meader f*cked."


And he was right.

So you're into Oompa Loompas.

Or really bad spray on tans?

They're orange, either way.

Black Box is orange to it's easier found in harsh conditions. Also, consider what a black box does? It records the last moments of people lives. I think its a perfect name for the purpose it is used for.

It records people's last words during a plane crash. I suppose it could have been called the Ohshiatbox.

No, that's lawyers.

they were originally black though.

the name stuck.

the thing also weighs quite a bit, so impossible for the plane to be made out of it and still fly. Not that it'd matter the passengers would probably still go splat as seat belts aren't designed to stop that force of gravity on impact no matter how indestructible the aircraft may be.

The NY Times Magazine JUST published a piece about the black box, and it actually being orange, this (well, yesterday) morning: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/06/magazine/who-made-that-black-box.ht m l

Complete with some theories about how it got the name.
