  9. Malaysian Airlines MH370 - Theories?

    It seems to have garnered more news than what's going on in Crimea, I guess because it's a mystery. The worst case scenario does have to be considered, BUT, I'm of the opinion that there is still a glimmer of hope that everyone on that Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 could still be alive. What...

  14. Flying Audi

    BBC News - Man seriously hurt as crash leaves car embedded in home What is more amazing? That the driver is still alive; the strength of the car body or the weakness of the, presumably, double brick walls - and it seem to be on a corner which ought to have given it a bit more strength, but look...
