I don't care, at this point, what happened to it.

If they found out that the thing turned into gold and contained the bodies of aliens from Jupiter....  I couldn't care less.

Wouldn't the black box be easier to find if it used a much simpler more recognizable sound? It could just go, "HEY! HEY! GUYS! HELLO?! IM HERE! SURE IS COLD AN DARK DOWN HERE! GUYS?!"

Too true, netcentric.

Whenever the news channels hang on to something like this, there is either nothing going on, or something very important they're trying to distract people from.

Also I came up with a really good euphemism for sex with a black woman: "I'd really like to put my pinger in her black box"

What will CNN do if an attractive white woman goes missing?

I gotta say, I am surprised about their inability to find the black boxes.  With the modern era we live in, and with the technology that exists, it really does surprise me that more sophisticated homing beacon technology is not integrated to the black boxes.

Yes, I recognize that stuff gets wonky at 20,000 feet below water, yes I know that the canyons and peaks can throw off a signals location.

I am still holding to the idea that far up in US intelligence, they know exactly where said plane is, perhaps even have the full cockpit recordings, but are withholding any release of data because it would let the world know exactly how sophisticated our spy capabilities are.

My only sustaining interest in this media melodrama comes from pondering all of the "International Diplomacy" that must be taking place on the high seas, and way up overhead.  The boys and girls at the CIA, NSA, BBC, BB King and all of those secret agencies must be drawing double-over time pay.

/and also "Where the bloody Hell have you been, 007!?"

God I miss my youthful wonder.  These days I figure the higher up you go in any agency, the more you'll find how clueless and unsophisticated things really are.

CNN should get it over with and change their channel number to 370.
 
2014-04-06 11:39:43 AM  
I have to admit, for the last few weeks I would go to CNN.com, snicker, and just close the tab without reading anything.

I've seen some shiat - missing white women and so on - but this is the all-time champ to my recollection.

What are they going to do when the plane gets found?

I've got a few friends that work at that very large 5 sided building here in NoVa...

You are echoing their sentiment.  That being said, I perhaps simply hold out hope that our technology is that good...

ya dig?

CNN has gone off the deep end with this one.  Sure, the news quality has degraded to Kerdashian-level hype over the years, but the options for watching news when getting dressed in the morning were quite slim.  Now, I think I can get better news from Russia Today than from CNN.

At some point they need to realize that very few care about the airplane.  The buzz is gone and when they find it at the bottom of the ocean 18 months from now, everyone will simply say "No shiat".

Damn you, sir. I looked up Goonies sequel.. Everything is "Goonies sequel 'MAY' be in the works"

That's just like.. BREAKING NEWS: we MAY have heard a pong somewhere from the blackbox!

/is that the joke?

OR... maybe the spy capabilities aren't that good... at all.

I hate when people assume hyper-competence.

Good lord, just have a sea side service for all the people and move on. The plane crashed into the ocean and you're never going to find it. Just move on.

/submarines use ELF or (extremely low frequency) radio to get signals underwater. And the have to trail like a mile of cable to do that.  But, they have to be at X depth to receive it.  If they are below Y depth, they won't get anything.  Works both ways.  If that plane is under 8 thousand feet of water, you're not hearing shiat, even if you're right above it, without special gear.

This. And if you're wrong? Hey, cool surprise!
 
2014-04-06 12:38:50 PM  
Probably be found by some fisherman, not even looking for it. More pissed it ruined his net.
 
2014-04-06 01:21:45 PM  
Surprised the pinger is still working this long. Unless someone dropped a new pinger there for ratings.

I could swear they put something on there like a GPS tracker. I swear all the tech we have, and not even the black box. Either it was one heck of an explosion, or the battery died on it.

Hey, you remember how bad the Malaysian PM and his crowd have been in communicating news coherently and rationally? Yeah, don't get your hopes up with the Australian PM. The guy's a complete tard.

Yes, move on to your new news cycle.

At this point it's safe to assume everyone is dead. The concern is finding out why. If it was a mechanical or electronic defect it's pretty important to know, especially since there's so little pointing to foul play.

To be fair Based Tony has been more reserved and sceptical in his tone and the Australians have less face to save when it comes to this. So he and the ADF are much more likely to just announce "nope, we didn't find anything."

Does the crash have its own theme music yet? If not then it's not a real tragedy.

I don't blame them.  The plane slammed into the sea, 1,000 miles from Perth, and the people are dead, end of story.  How would it help things to expose our capabilities to the world?  Pretend to flounder around for another week, and then, just "stumble" onto the crash site, you know, "It was a needle in a haystack type of thing".

At some point weeks ago, I realized that their coverage of this is as pointless as a Ted Cruz fillibuster.  You just check in every now and then to see if they are still stuck on it. And "yep, more pointless drivel"

CNN may have taken the record for spending the longest amount of time saying absolutely nothing.
