I would honestly prefer it if they shoved passengers into coffins and stacked them vertically to the god-awful seats they have now...

Hello!

This is what Yoda is referring to: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/18/world/europe/malaysian-airlines-plane-ukraine.html?_r=0
A civilian plane got shot down over Ukraine.

WW3 inc

(EDIT: fudge... I just realized... if there was a WW3, I'm a fit individual still in my prime... I'd be drafted...)

Dear god.
Poor innocent folk.  And such a terrible coincidence to have both Ukraine and Malaysian Airlines taking the headlines --- this time in the same damned article.

So either Ukraine Rebels or Russia shot this plane down.

Well, I think I'm too old to be drafted! (32)

Just turned 29 myself, so I'm probably still in the "prime" area for drafting.

TASTY!

From what I heard, there were a team of AIDS specialists on that plane. Whoever did this may have well shot the future cure for AIDS right out of the sky.

Yes, six passangers were on their way to the National AIDS Conference. Among them was Joep Lange.

Most of the news here has been about the Dutch passengers and about the identification proces of all victims. It was weird seeing the coffins loaded up into trucks and planes, especially when they said one such coffin could contain the remains of more than just one person.

If you think about it, in less than 6 months, Malaysia Airline has accumulated over 500 deaths.

$500 (51,300 yen) plush Godzilla from German toy maker, Steiff to commemorate Godzilla's 60th birthday. My god, that must be one of the most expensive plush toys ever to be released.

I could see this being a smash hit if they included recipes from this blogger:

In light of recent events in Iraq, I hope that President Obama remembers two important things:

1. Don't pull the thang out unless you plan to bang.
2. Don't even bang unless you plan to hit somethang.

Interesting article (and social experiment) on Wired.com about the Facebook "Like" phenomena. A great read.

http://www.wired.com/2014/08/i-liked-everything-i-saw-on-facebook-for-two-days-heres-what-it-did-to-me/

Interesting quote from artist Andy Warhol:
"...Everybody looks alike and acts alike, and we’re getting more and more that way. I think everybody should be a machine. I think everybody should like everybody."
