Plane Crash and Ocean Depth  
Okay this French plane crash is messing with my head. (As King Julian would say from Madagascar: It's freaking me out. - lol) I mean I knew about it but they don't know what happened to it or where it is. So strange. My mom was telling me other planes have disappeared. Of course, this is also where rumors of the Bermuda Triangle come into play. I don't really put much stalk into that but I have to wonder what the heck happened to all those missing planes and then that brings up that old mystery of Amelia Earheart. I was so fascinated with that as a kid. Always have loved the unexplained. Anything you were so intrigued by or still are?

Now for Ocean Depth. I keep hearing that if this French plane at the bottom of the ocean we might never find it. Um... the deepest point in the Mariana Trench, right? That is in the Pacific. And didn't Jacques Piccard go nearly to the bottom of the Trench (Challenger Deep) in the 60s? So why can't we go that deep now?

Granted the vessel they used started having problems but they made more to find other vessels. Why haven't we improved upon that technology? Well I'm sure they've used it for subs. Says so...

Note: Okay I was reading about the trip to the "bottom" of the ocean on Jacques Wiki page and it says scientist didn't believe he'd gone that far down because he saw fish and fish can't survive that depth. *lol* As if they know! First, they'd never encountered anything from that depth and if you believe in Creation then hello God made those animals to survive that depth. If you believe in evolution then hello they evolved to survive that depth. Stupid scientists.

Oh, I'm intrigued, I'm really am. There's a lot of contradictory info going on. And yes, the fact that nobody knows what really happened is so freaking scaring.
For what I read, is not only how deep into the sea they believe the plane fall, but also how strong sea currents are in there.
I keep wondering what happened? why? how they can confuse oil discarded from ships with plane remains? It's all so weird...

There is. It is crazy just hearing about the crash because I have the assumption that if you crash a plane there is debris and while most of it might sink, would think a lot of stuff would float so there should be some evidence of a crash right?

Totally. The currents would make finding it interesting so you would think they would get people searching a large area. Also I wonder if in the future debris will wash up somewhere.

Also, I like to be optomistic. Are there islands somewhere in there that it is possible anyone could have survived and made it too. Unlikely but maybe they need to fly by. I don't know. We won't know until they find something.

Me too. I mean they talk about the air speed and I'm guessing a plane would break apart but then there is no evidence? Even an explosion would leave evidence.

Don't you wish you were privy to the mysteries of the world?

And what about all those satellites? Planes are supposedly sending signals all the time, even after an a explosion. How is nothing comes up?
And of course, you know how air-hostess tell you about seats being like... what's the word? Well, that they float and you can use them if the plane crash on sea. Where are all of these?

I guess, eventually, something is gonna appear in some beach. *shakes head* So sad.

Exactly! There must be "something" left. anything.

Oh, yes! The world is so full of mysteries! that's what makes it so interesting :)

Good point. With all the big brother crap there should be something on that plane.

Flotation devices. Totally. They would float.

True. I think that is what just makes like more interesting in general. But me I've always been obsessed with them.

I'm quite obsessed, too. I'm always looking for answers or, at least, for clues.
All those mysteries are taunting me, daring me to go ahead and find what's all about.
I'm willing to open my mind to any kind of answer, as long as it fits with whatever facts are. Sadly, most of the time is really hard to split facts from myth...
One (and maybe the main) reason I'm studying Ethnology right now it's because is a lot about myths and religions, and beliefs. Different answers to the same questions...

I for one, couldn't help think of Lost when the sentence "plane missing" went through my head.. but that just goes to show my social experience is lesser than my obsession with tv shows..

Sadly some things we might never know what did happen, just like the true fate of Amelia Earheart :( But aren't many of the deep depths still uncharted, despite the help of satellites?

Hmm, if it was possible, I'd be thrilled to learn how our ancestors came to speak. As there seems to be three theories going around. There are also various crime cases I'd want to go to the bottom with, to be absolutely sure what did happen, especially when no one has been found guilty for them.

I know right. It's hard not to go there.

It bothers me so much because something like Amelia's fate is something that really fascinates me to the point of madness.

Me too. I would love to find the truth of the crimes that go unsolved.

I believe someday that will all be revealed though.
