    @Flabyo Have they said how many pings they got? If they got more than 1 ping and they were all on that arc, it would indicate that the plane was stationary, surely?
    The former head of security for the United States’ Federal Aviation Administration insists that MH370 crew succumbed to fire.

    I think the arc is based on the final ping they got. Having the whole lot doesn't really narrow much down, you just end up with a sausage shaped splurge, you still can't tell where in that shape it actually was, nor the actual direction. Even the 'arc' they're showing is hundreds of miles wide, it's a lot of ground and sea to cover.

    I really can see it being years before it's found.

    Everyone chill.

    Courtney Love solved the mystery.

    She should've just stopped at "I'm no expert".

    Courtney Love should have just stopped a few years ago.

    I'm pretty sure she did and it's just momentum keeping her going at this point.

    Is it momentum or inertia?

    RE: Phelps.

    On the one hand, fuck the Westboro Baptist Church and anyone associated with them. On the other, I heard he was excommunicated from the WBC, and anyone who manages to get on the wrong side of them deserves at least a second look. On the third hand (I have many extra hands) fuck him and his goddamn fucking fuckdamn fuck.

    He was excommunicated from their church for advocating that people inside the church should be nicer to each other. Not nicer to anyone else, just nicer to their fellow members of their cult. Meaning the council of "elders" who assumed control of the church are even bigger assholes than Phelps.

    No second looks, no sympathy. I don't dance on his grave but I'm happy he's dead so that he can't hurt anyone else.

    Marriage equality in Michigan. Love it's a wonderful thing.
    • CommentTimeMar 21st 2014
    In a backhanded way, Phelps and his ilk were extremely helpful in the push for gay equality. People who would normally have been indifferent or hostile to gay marriage and equality tended to end up supporting them because they didn't want to be on anywhere near the same side as those hateful WBC fucks.

    Oh. Hi there, SkyNet. Strip clubs (and their patrons) welcome our gyrating robotic overlords.

    Direct YouTube embed of the video:

    I wonder how long it takes someone to implant a fleshlight into that after the video/exhibit.

    What they didn't tell about this is that the wake-up procedure is for the gunshot victims to have a very coherent yet suitably surrealistic dream where they are in an alternate reality with most of the people they know, and they need to overcome an adversity and confront a great enemy so that they can wake up.

    After a 6 year study the UN's Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Olivier De Schutter, produced a 29 Page Report. Yes! only 29 Pages!

    But I will assure you, it is 29 pages of most magnanimous denunciation of our modern malediction,

    And here it is:
    The transformative potential of the right to food

    Please, if you do nothing else this week, read it.
