I might as well get this down for the record since my blog is working again.
1. Russia is behind the missing flight, MH370. It’s there to distract people so that it can continue doing more domestic hardening without international headlines. If there were no plane it would be items one and two, whereas now it’s just item two. This stops people freaking out and getting hyperbolic. Actually on that reasoning it may be anyone who wants less international hyperbole, so it might be anyone. Given the cover up, though, it’s someone good at this. China? North Korea?
2. I’m seriously tempted to set up a global grid where you could buy a 1 square km patch for £1. If the plane / Wally / the yeti is found there you get 20%, I get 20%, and charities get 80%.
