Re: Malaysian airliner feared lost..

When I was in my teens, I remember watching a 70s or early 80s movie where humans from the future, who are suffering from a huge decline in population, invent time travel and then proceed to rescue humans from airliners that are about to crash and bring those rescued humans to the future in order to replenish the human population.

Pilots from the area say they've located debris according to HLN.

You're gonna feel really bad if it turns out Freejack was the in-flight movie.

Re: Malaysian airliner feared lost..

According to the UK's Mirror, The Malaysian military continued to track the aircraft even after the civilian air traffic controllers lost contact. This case is one of the most baffling cases in recent aviation history.

This whole situation is just awful. Not knowing what happened to this plane has just caused all sorts of speculation.

Re: Malaysian airliner feared lost..

Yeah, the worst is people speculating that something weird happened to it and all those people are still alive somewhere. There's a pretty limited number of realistic options for what happened, none of which result in any of those people returning home. It's kind of sick to entertain that sort of speculation right now.

I looked up that movie this morning. Apparently, such temporal incursions were not without a price...

Well, something weird clearly happened. But I agree that (laymen) speculating about what specifically that might have been could be in bad taste.

The problem has nothing to do with speculation being offered by laymen. The problem is flippancy.

Re: Malaysian airliner feared lost..

I'm really sick of one day "It must be terrorism!!!" then the next "Maybe the pilots did it!!!" then the next "Maybe it landed somewhere!!!". Just think of what the families are going through, no need to drag their (most likely dead) loved ones through the mud.

Until we get real facts everyone should shut up, because right now the plane being on the island from LOST fits into what everyone is saying.
