For some people, the 1940s happened recently.

1. Where is her partner?
2. Where is her plane?
 
2018-03-07 01:37:28 PM  
Some will believe it. For others, it ain't gonna fly.

Oh SHIAT!!   I interviewed with Dr. Jantz at the UT Knoxville.  LOL
""When Hoodless conducted his analysis, forensic osteology was not yet a well-developed discipline," he explains in a paper published in the journal Forensic Anthropology. "Evaluating his methods with reference to modern data and methods suggests that they were inadequate to his task; this is particularly the case with his sexing method. Therefore his sex assessment of the Nikumaroro bones cannot be assumed to be correct.""

It the pelvic bone was intact and available to study it should have been *relatively* easy to determine if it was male or female.    I'm curious as to what his methods were........."Jantz says that the subpubic angle is the most reliable of Hoodless' criteria, but even that is "subject to considerable variation, much of which was little understood in 1941.""
OH.....well nevermind.    I see it's been addressed.

cman: 1. Where is her partner?

1. Dinner seventy odd years ago.
2. Bottom of an ocean. Also dinner for various coral and other things, over the last seventy odd years.

The bones were subsequently lost.

This is how you keep the mystery alive.
 
2018-03-07 01:51:57 PM  
To be fair, as a blind woman Ms. Earhart probably did not know that it was a skeleton.

This.

Well, if either Earhart or Noonan knew Morse and how to work a farkin' radio, she'd have made actual two-way radio contact with the Itasca, and she would have likely landed safely.

But hey, let's not bother to learn that kind of stuff because it's not really important for an around-the-world flight, right?
 
2018-03-07 02:03:52 PM  
Oh, and for the reasons I outline in this post:

https://www.fark.com/comments/9354266​/​105620569#c105620569

I think the alleged radio signals after the crash by Earhart are bunk.
 
2018-03-07 02:09:50 PM  
I was told that she, her navigator, and her plane were under house arrest for safekeeping in Hiroshima to be released after the war.

Good to hear this covered.

Baloney.  Everyone knows she and her partner were transported to the Delta quadrant and are being kept in suspended animation until Captain Janeway finds them a few hundred years from now.  Occam's Razor, people.

There is one way, and one way only to be sure: Clone her back to life, like you would any common velociraptor.

It's the only way to be sure.

"Richard Jantz, an emeritus anthropology professor at the University of Tennessee..."

AKA an old fart who uses old techniques to argue that lost bones were Earheart's.
We should take his word for it! He's a professor!!

/DNA is the only way

2018-03-07 02:17:37 PM  
The research contradicts a forensic analysis of the remains in 1941 that described the bones as belonging to a male. The bones, which were subsequently lost, continue to be a source of debate.

So the bones they thought were Earhart's were then lost. She was very thorough in erasing every trace of herself.

Nikumaroro Island isn't really a great vacation spot.  If that's what they wanted, they could just get their ham radio licenses and go on a DXpedition.

"The subpubic angle is wider in women than in men"

I just got the weirdest boner.
 
2018-03-07 02:25:08 PM  
In all fairness, it wasn't a skeleton when she stored it with her radium.
