    The article is not_news.

    Just a restatement of fact that many things are not_known.

    Five years later (as of yesterday) and the Russians are still secretly detaining the passengers of MH-370 for mind-control experiments**. I, for one, am beginning to question that theory...

    **emboldened, no doubt, by their success with the crew of Polish 101.

    I fear Bobby that it is so.

    Victor Iannello on Twitter:

    Sources are now coming forward with what I concluded in Nov 2016: The six coordinates found on the captain's computer with takeoff at KLIA and ending in fuel exhaustion in the SIO were all from the same simulation session.

    I was thinking of that... I didn't read the 500-pages report yet, only the introduction and conclusions. Was there any mention of the flight sim in the report?

    I Believe that the captain was responsible. Why ? well....

    So then, we still have 239 possibilites to eliminate, plus the ones we don't know about...

    (btw, I think that's more of an adage than an aphorism)

    Any relevance to short circuits in center wing tanks vs. meteors?

    Oh- and a moderator-warning-worthy personal insult to you- just because.

    If that's so, I would like to know the $20 term/namesake for the logical rule, that

    Spock's Razor?
    I don't know. I've heard that one, it is a good one, but it is definitely NOT any version of Occam's razor which deals with the simplest vs less simple explanations.
    The one above, by the way, is a tautology. Of course that, if you start from the set of all conceivable explanations for something, as you eliminate some of them finding them incorrect, the subset of non-eliminated ones contains the correct one. A tautology is true in itself, so the above "aphorism" (for lack of a better name) is necessarily true. But it is not Occam's razor which is NOT always true, it's rather a "guideline". But sometimes the simplest explanation happens to be NOT the correct one (and stops being an explanation).

    PS- I don't think Gabriel is arguing with us...just dealing on the old "what we mean to say, what we actually say, and what folks hear us say" to the exponent of an internet discussion forum multiplied by the human factors coefficient

    + a dose of pedantic engineer ISO-9007 QC factor...

    Of course, he might be TECHNICALLY right- so I suggest we insult him
