I'll go for a fire in the electronics bay that caused the blackout, and the plane is now lying at the bottom of the sea ... http://www.wired.com/autopia/2014/03/mh370-electrical-fire/

I probably shouldn't ...
... rise to the bait, but ...
These Lulz kids really are a bunch of F*cking Retards. What the f*ck do they teach in schools these days? Anything?
( ... and yes, I know that once you use the 'F' word you lose the argument, but what the hell. It made me feel better, momentarily)
I'm with those that think Wikileaks have crossed a line over recent months, and especially now. From all the 'downvoting' this clearly isn't a popular position, but I suspect there are a lot of Daily Mail readers in here today.
While we may not like everything our governments do, at least in this part of the World we have the opportunity to say so, publicly. That is democracy, and we should all be thankful for it.
What Wikileaks is doing nowadays is not helping this process at all, it's merely self-serving publicity for a site that used to do good work, but is now short of cash.
If I was Assange, I'd be avoiding dark alleyways, and rightly so. He is playing dangerous games with the very same democratic process that he will no doubt hope will protect him from harm.

Just because you haven't got much money doesn't mean you need to behave (and look) like a retard, so he has a valid point.
I've seen the same kind of thing as Andrew, and it's not pleasant. The EasyJet queue is often much the same ( I know, because I'm frequently standing in it), but not quite like the RyanAir rabble.
Personally, I subscribe to the "if you don't like 'em, don't use 'em" school of thought. I will NEVER fly Ryan Air, a bit like I never buy fuel in a supermarket. Principles.
It's why I haven't seen my brother who lives in Sweden for years - I can't afford to pay what BA charge, and I won't use RyanAir. SqueezyJet are about to start flying the route though :-)
Serves them right
Any British person that goes to live in Israel deserves all they get - having their identity stolen should be the least of the troubles visited upon them. Especially if they then choose to adopt dual-nationality in a country that shouldn't even exist.
They are probably lucky that Mossad didn't just bump them off to stop them whingeing.
@ Adam Trickett
Thanks mate - I've got to have a root canal done in a couple of weeks time, and I was already dreading it!
Just reading this article made my toes curl and my bum suck in - I HATE going to the dentist. I had a tooth extracted on Monday morning - a very bad start to the week - it took two dentists almost an hour to get it out (the first had to stop because her arm was hurting - imagine how my face felt!).
Oh, and a dentist explained to me once that if having the injection is sore or uncomfortable, it's likely the dentists fault - if they squeeze too hard on the syringe, it builds up pressure in your gum. She was brilliant - she rarely made me wince, was dead patient with my pansy-like behaviour and almost made me stop worrying about the idea of a visit - then she retired!
I should have listened when my Mum told me to brush my teeth properly all those years ago :-)
Let's hope it's an improvement on the CrapBerry MKI. I've been lumbered with one of these for nearly a year now, and only in the last month or so have the software updates made the thing anymore use than a paperweight - albeit a paperweight with a battery that goes flat alarmingly quickly.
I'm not tempted, and my MKI effort will be going in the bin when my contract is up ...
P.S. On Vodafones contract, you can't even watch any educational Internet smut without paying Vodafone another £1, "to prove you're 18". Bloody cheek. Or so I've read ...
@ "the superior product"
WHAT? I used (or tried to use) Sage for my self-employed accounts, and it was a complete pig for a non bean-counter type like myself ... then I read an article on El Reg about Microsoft Accounting, installed it, and very soon uninstalled Sage and never looked back.
Microsoft ACcounting had a definite place for some people, and was/is much more reliable and easier to maintain. I shall miss it.
The one thing about all this that I think is a little unfair is the short notice that Microsoft have given to users of the product.
Lucky b**tards ..
at least they bother to lube the rails in London. On the trains around the MiseryRail network up here, they can't be arsed, so we all get to go deaf as we trundle through the tunnel loop, stuck to our chewing-gum covered seats.
Mind you, they frequently can't be arsed running the trains either, especially on the Wirral Line, so that tends to keep the noise down a bit.
Her Ladyship, because even she could run a rail service better than MerseyRail, and she certainly wouldn't be tight with the lube ...
The iPod truly is the audio tool of the devil. If I could ban one item of modern life, it would be the f**king iPod.
As a poor sap that has to travel into work every day on Liverpools MiseryRail network, I can atest that there is very little of the 'personal' about the stereo from one of these devices. Why the fuck can't they design a pair of earplugs that keep the sound in the ear, rather than annoying the crap out of anyone within 20 feet?
I truly, truly hate the iPod.
You don't want to get on the wrong end of them. I had a 'run-in' with BT, who passed the debt to Moorcroft, despite having told me that they had cancelled the debt. Not pleasant.
It makes you wonder who would would want to work in a place like that, and if the rest of the staff are there on sufferance because it's all they can get, no wonder the business is so crap. They reduced an ex of mine to tears once, over a debt that had already been paid.
One of my small pleasures in life is knowing that I once got a debt collector (not from Moorcrofts, sadly) fired, because he phoned my house one afternoon and discussed the full details of my apparent inabilities to pay my bills with our cleaning lady!
B**tards, the lot of 'em.
*Mines the one with the CCJ's tucked in the pocket.
Vista SP1 Blue Screen of Death
the chap sat opposite me was fed a breakfast of Vista SP1 first thing on Monday morning ... by elevenses time he was sat looking at a Blue Screen of Death ... first one I've seen in a good while.
His PC is now healthy again, but only because he was able to remove the SP1 update.
Think I'll stay with XP, for now anyway.
Anything is better ...
Anything, and I mean ANYTHING, that replaces Sage has to be worth a look.
Sage has to be one of the worst software applications that I have had the misfortune to deal with, and as for the cheek of expecting you to pay for support for a product you've bought ... they deserve anything they get IMHO.
I can quite believe it
I work part-time for a small business (Firstmile Community Broadband) supplying wireless broadband in a rural area. People beyond the reach of conventional broadband complain about the lack of service, and say how they'd love to have high-speed Internet Access.
So we tell them we charge £25 pcm - usually with a minimal installation fee - and they bitch about the cost!
There's something about the Internet that seems to make most people think it should be 'Free', and anyone attempting to make eke a living from it is some form of crook. It's the same attitude that drives P2P etc.
But not on our network ;-)
