    Well, yeah!

    Most likely explanation avoiding all the whack job speculation is that there was a major electrical crisis/catastrophe (cluster farg) on board, which knocked out the transponder and the communication devices. Since the plane was on auto-pilot, it mapped out a course to return to mainland for emergency landing, yet all passengers and the crew were probably rendered incapacitated because of a depressurized cabin and lack of oxygen.

    In the very short few minutes when panic sets in and fight or flight instincts set in (no pun), no one has time to get on the cell phone to call next of kin to bear news of such an event. The plane just flew at the settled altitude on the new course with all on board already deceased and when it finally ran out of fuel, it gradually crash landed in the South Indian Ocean.

    I read a report today that the undercurrents in that part of the Indian Ocean can move a fairly large object at a rate of 1 foot per second which translates to the same object having moved along with the current about a few hundred miles in just a handful of days.

    Is this what Courtney Lurve had also babbled? :geek:

    To the word Poofessoria !!! :whistling:

    Sounds like your all over this one mate ............. yeah, to be that far off course, you'd have to think that the plane flew itself for quite sometime before running out of fuel ............. and you'd certainly hope that all onboard were deceased well before it crashed at least.

    Sad way to end.

    Mount Everest is about 29000 feet high. If your lungs are used to sea level oxygen and you are suddenly dropped on its summit, you'll pass out within a handful of minutes because of lack of oxygen and within a mere minute or two, you'll feel woozy, nauseous and almost dysfunctional within your motor functions and cognitive abilities.

    In a depressurized plane at over 30000 feet if the oxygen masks do not deploy, passengers would be unconscious inside of 5 minutes and brain dead in a fraction of an hour. If that plane flew for several hours under such a scenario, the passengers' death came well before the plane descended into the Ocean.

    I can't fathom that this plane somehow flew over any substantial land mass because any country not run by a bunch of primates at its military radar operations, would have detected an unidentifiable flyer. It is a pretty good assumption that it flew over the Ocean if it maintained its regular cruising altitude.

    Then again, I'm not a flight "stacker" like Jammer ;)

    In other Aussie related news:

    "...
    A 27-year-old medical student may have the prescription for instant Internet notoriety by auctioning her virginity.

    The woman is using the name "Elizabeth Raine," and claims to be a student at one of America's top medical schools.

    Raine hopes to net at least $400,000 from the bidding and is using an Australian agent :eek: to avoid breaking U.S. prostitution laws.

    So where is she planning on "losing it" ??? There or downunder ?

    For $400,000, she'd better have marathon-staying ability, stamina like a rented pack-mule, be able to suck a golfball through a piece of Spaghetti and squirt like Ol' Faithful.

    I'm guessing she's highly overestimated her Snapper's capabilities ........ :D

    Nope......... Clary is the teflon man. I just saw this little fan piece on him......

    Clarifying Clary: A Look at What the Chargers May be Thinking

    Jeromey Clary has been much maligned during his career with the Chargers, and most of it has been deserved; although, some of this criticism could be attributed to hyperbolic fan overreaction (Sidebar: This has been true of some players during most and/or part of their Charger career. See: Quentin Jammer, Jacob Hester, Eric Weddle, et al.).

    Lately though, there has been a loud clamor demanding that Clary be released by the Chargers. This is mainly due to his high salary ($4,550,000 in base salary and $1,700,000 in his pro-rated signing bonus, which adds up to a total cap figure of $6,250,000). When most look at the big money that Clary is making, they think it’s ludicrous and beyond all reason. Some look at the advanced metrics and see how low Clary was ranked by Pro Football Focus or others and wonder how he is worth that salary and why he is still currently a Charger and the 4th highest paid one, at that.

    Well, the Chargers obviously have a different line of thinking that most fans. Currently and as of now, they must deem him worthy of the aforementioned salary, for they have yet to "renegotiate," nor cut him from the roster. And let me clarify in advance to avoid any notion that I am "appealing to authority" here; I do not necessarily agree, nor condone, nor concur with their view; I am just tiring of the continual onslaught and tumult for Clary’s position on this team to be no more. After a few comments on nearly every thread on BFTB, it becomes tiresome rather quickly.

    I do think I may understand why they may be keeping Clary at his current deal (although, Tom Telesco did say that there may very well be more veteran restructures forthcoming—in short, "there are a lot of moving parts."). Here are some of the things that Clary does provide for the Chargers:

    • Leadership. Apparently, he is well liked in the locker room and has a positive presence.
    • Continuity. There is a lot of talk about how much continuity helps O-Line play and maybe since Ryan Mathews had a career year last year, the Chargers may want to keep the line as stable as they can.
    • Flexibility. In terms of position. He played mostly at RG last year, but also played a RT when Fluker went down and also when Fluker played at LT.
    • Stability. This may very well be the main reason he is still on the team at his current salary. Clary seemingly is always on the field. This isn’t necessarily true of any of the other starters (aside from Fluker, who only has one year under his belt thus far) on the line. Clary has started 96 out of the 106 he has played in (10 of which was his 2nd year and he wasn’t active at all his rookie year). Over the last 6 seasons, (according to my math) he has missed only 9 games due to injury in the regular season. This includes 2009 when he was placed on IR.
    • Toughness. He plays hurt an awful lot (see above).
    • Known quantity. There is that old adage that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. The Chargers know what they have in Clary, as a player and as a person. This is not going to be true of most free-agent pick-ups. They know how hard he works and how he fits in in terms of scheme, play, and personality. This doesn't always turn out to be true with free-agents (see: Derek Cox, Robert Meachem, David Boston, etc.).
    While you and I may not agree with the Chargers and their current decision making in regards to Clary, they seem to be staying the course with him and his contract (again, please do not read into what I am saying here and just assume that I think that the Chargers are always correct with their choices because they are the team. Obviously, that would be a huge misnomer. One would just need to look at Derek Cox to see that they do indeed make mistakes and therefore aren’t always right). So, while you may not agree with Clary being the 4th highest paid player on the Chargers, sometimes some decisions go beyond the numbers.

    Who wrote that BLEW ?

    As fine a bit of fence-sitting reading as I've seen in awhile .....................

    I couldn't give a Gnat's nut whether he's "well liked", "works hard", provides flexibility, is durable and plays hurt ............none of those things mean jackshite if your constantly beaten by your opponent more times than not and commit countless dumbarse penalties year after year.

    Have never questioned this kid's heart or endeavour, gives you all he has, my problem is and always has been ................... it isn't good enough.

    For whatever reason it seems Charger fans in general get awfully sentimental over certain players and it ends up hurting us down the line and holding us back from ever truely challenging the "Big Boy's" at the pointy end of the season ........... that attitude is all good and fine, as long as you don't mind always coming up short year after year.

    Clary and his likes are honest as the day is long, but they'll very very rarely take you to the promisedland in my opinion.

    p.s.,.......did he seriously use Jacob Hester as an example of hyperbolic fan overreaction ?

    ..... remind me again where he is playing in the NFL !!! :rolleyes:

    It was from BFTB, if I remember correctly.

    The fact is simple........ the organization places a different value on Clary than most fans do. That guy was just trying to come up with some reasons why that might be the case, nothing more. I think they were clear in saying they didn't feel that way themselves.
