MH370 and ocean currents

It’s reasonable that ocean currents could have carried debris to Reunion Island if the plane crashed in the area of the Indian Ocean where they were searching for it. Ocean currents are 2 mph, so debris can travel very far in a year. The South Equatorial Current could take debris to Reunion Island.

That’s a depressingly boring explanation.

UPDATE

Christophe Naudin, a French criminologist and specialist in aviation security, says that the wreckage is NOT from a Boeing 777.

This is not the first time that the French media has better coverage than the English media.

THURSDAY MORNING and BB670

No one else is taking Christophe Naudin seriously. He’s probably a bozo.

The marking BB670 was on the wing, and no one has been able to figure out what it means. You would think that someone from Boeing would have known that by now.

657-BB

Another number on the debris, 657-BB, is said to be a part number from a Boeing 777 flaperon, so I guess it’s settled. The French guy is a bozo.

  1. Glad to see you’re posting regularly. How’s the job hunt going, or is it on hiatus as you take a breather?
    Now that you’ve got a bit of time to do training, would you reconsider getting a pet? They’re proven to be good for you in terms of overall health, happiness, etc.

    • I mean, mate, you think a human being should be taking care of an animal like being busy walking it and picking up its litter? Or you mean fish?

      I think a cactus is good. You can just forget about and it takes care of itself, or so they say.

    • Someone to talk to.

      • Mate, if you need a dog or a cat to talk to, you are in a bad way. You either think that they understand what you are saying, or you know that the don’t but you still talk to them. Either way you are in a bad way.

        Can just imagine JS and his French girls walking their dogs somewhere in Manhattan.

        So the French girl goes: ‘My dog, he is so smart he understands French and English well and some Arabic too!’
        JS goes: ‘Oh this is so awesome! American dogs are so prole – all they understand is this terrible American English! I hate American dogs! Your dog understand British accent?’
        The French girl:’ Oh it makes no difference to him, he is so smart! ‘
        JS:’ This is amazing! Prole drift among dogs too! A cultured dog shouldn’t be into American English! Next thing you know it’s going to learn ebonics! ‘

        Suddenly a fire engine comes rushing down the street full of prole Italian and Irish firemen and all three dogs, being wimpy, useless breeds unaccustomed to real dog’s life do a number two right than and there. So JS and his French girls stop their discussion of French philosophy and prole drift among European dogs, get on their knees and start cleaning the mixture of French-American-Elite dog poop from a Manhattan sidewalk.
        ‘What do you do for a living? ‘ asks a French girl.
        ‘ I’m a VP analyst-consultant for the gaming industry of the manoshpere. ‘ – says JS, feeling anxious if the French girls will be impressed enough to hook up with him. But they are literally so full of s*** that they don’t seem to notice. Meanwhile a couple of prole cops pass by and burst out laughing. An old black man stops, turns to JS and says: ‘Young man, when I was your age down South, white men would let no lady clean no s***. You are not a gentlemen, young man’ . A young dominican girl goes by and says:’ Eat s***, white bitches! ‘

        Sorry, I don’t have time to finish got to run, later…

  2. They would have tracked the debris and found it. At this point, the outrageous possibilities are becoming the most likely.

    Remember the cartoons in the 80’s where the villain had the lair under the mountain on a tropical island? I think it’s parked somewhere in Northern Australia, myself. There are vast stretches of desert where no one would see the plane land. Getting it off the ground is another concern. I don’t think ISIS needs it anymore or it would have already been used to deliver what they were planning to deliver with it.

  3. Boring? A shell-encrusted piece of the plane showing up doesn’t settle the case as boring. Still lots of unanswered questions, but the piece will definitely rekindle discussion for a while.

  4. Currents more likely if plane shot down around Diego Garcia.

    • No, not really. And the Diego Garcia conspiracy theory never made any sense to me. That’s the last place I’d go if I wanted to steal a plane.

      • They didn’t want to steal a plane. They wants to crash it into a docked aircraft carrier, destroyer or air terminal. (And it doesn’t matter if they could have done this, or if aircraft carriers ever dock at Diego Garcia, or whatever. Islamists are apocalyptic terrorists who think they are a going to wake up in Moslem heaven after they kill a bunch of infidels. they may be competent but they aren’t rational.)

  5. You said the plane landed somewhere. I want the plane to land somewhere.

    • Yes, it’s very boring if the plane just crashed in the middle of nowhere in the Indian Ocean.

  6. A guest on Coast to Coast AM had a conspiracy theory about it overnight, something about an island with an old prison, where there’s some runway or a road that could be used as one at low tide.

  7. Overnight things have changed. They have now identified the part number found on the piece as that of a Boeing 777.

  8. C’mon people. We all know Donald Trump was behind it.

    • Oh come on, but if Donald Trump is president, then he will find the wreckage, because a successful businessman like him knows how promise he can do anything.

  9. Where are all the conspiracy theorists when it came to the plane shot over Ukraine? I mean there is the black box, right? Malaysia doesn’t want it because most passengers are Dutch ( is this how it goes that the country with most passengers gets to investigate a crash?). The Dutch do not want it because, iirc, they don’t have the ‘technology’. So who gets it? The UK and the USA! No problem, these guys have the ‘technology’. It’s gonna take us 24-48 hours and there are going to be serious consequences for the responsible parties! What happened? Still investigating for over a year? Russia is threatening to go to international court to have the information made public. Lion, what’s going on?

    Yakov

    July 30, 2015 at EDT am

    • All this ‘technology’ is rather primitive.

  10. Monsieur Leon: In the short course of your little blog post, I went from “French criminologist and specialist in aviation security” to a BOZO!!!

    You, sir, are a crétin!

  11. So the grand argument goes on, do Muslim pilots murder entire large passenger planes once every five years or so or is there a different figure that is more accurate?
