Malaysian Airlines MH370: The Incredible 2 Year Anniversary, March 8, 2016.

by Anura Guruge


24 Months. 2 YEARS!

731 Days.

They still have NOT found the plane.

How is this possible?


24 MONTHS!

After all their CLAIMS that they were CLOSE and that they will NEVER GIVE UP, Australia is now claiming that search will end in 4 months! From NBC News. Click image to access original.


Remember when the Australians, a YEAR AGO, said they were CLOSE & CONFIDENT?

So much for their credibility.

The Black Boxes from Air France Flight 447, which crashed into the Atlantic, in June 2009, were recovered JUST ahead of the 2 year anniversary of the crash. AF 447 was thus used as a precedent, a benchmark. Well the 2 years is UP.


Just search “Google News” for “MH 370”.
No point me trying to just show you snippets.
This is beyond the pale. Somebody, somewhere knows MORE than they are letting on.

That was close to 2 YEARS AGO.

Reasons 167 To 168 Of The 1,001 Reasons I Really, Really HATE DirecTV.

#167. On Tuesday we, as a family, were watching a Hallmark movie. Come bedtime for the kids, I stopped the movie using the STOP button. That took us back to the recorded event ‘box’ — which has the options listed on the left hand side starting with PLAY, RESUME etc. DONE is right at the bottom. So I am scrolling down to DONE when the screen goes blank. No sound. Another bloody black screen from DirecTV. Could not go back to before. used Channel select to get out. Then checked movie via LIST. It was still there. Damn strange. Very annoying.

#168. Selecting FAVORITES, with either remote, has become a total bloody crap shoot. Hardly ever works first time. You got to keep on pressing it hoping that it will work. Amazing. Pitiful engineering. Cheap technology. Useless company.

#157 – #166. As is my norm, being a news junkie, around 6:30 pm today (later than usual since we went swimming in the lake), I sat down in front of the big TV and turned the bloody Genie and the TV on. Blank screen. BLACK. Nothing. NADA. Again. Messed around. Turned it all off and turned it on again. Nothing. Then tried other channels. Bing. A picture. Tried CNBC. A bloody screen, with blaring music, saying Direc-bloody-TV is experiencing technical bloody problems. Well in my books they are experiencing problems all the time. No CNN. No CNBC. MSNBC is fine. CNN was back in about an hour. CNBC is still down. At 8pm I came up and did a Google. Appears that this ‘Direc-bloody-TV is experiencing technical bloody problems’ happens OFTEN! Went to the Technical Forum. Found the above message. I hate DirecTV. This counts as at least 10 bloody grievances since I tried to get CNN that many times.

Bloody DirecTV.

#153. Saturday morning I was watching 202, i.e., CNN. I then wanted to watch local news. So punched in 9. ‘9’ appeared at the top as the selected channel. Then the TV screen (and this is on the Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini) went black. Dead. Nothing. Nothing. NADA. Just a dead screen. Happened before. Had to use Channel Down. Got Channel 7. Then had to use Channel Up to get 9. Worked fine the 2nd time around.

#154. Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini: overall performance is so slow that when you are scrolling down the TV GUIDE it can’t keep up with the Go Up (or Go Down) entries on the remote. So they are buffered. Every once in awhile it catches up … and then goes crazy … does like 20 up (or down) motions at once! It is so pathetic.

#155. Selecting FAVORITES, especially on the Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini, takes for ever and a bit longer. You punch the ‘up arrow’ expecting to get the selection box. Nothing. Nothing. NADA. Just when you think it never got it and are getting ready to punch it again, the box comes up. We are talking frozen molasses slow. It is like the Genie is constipated — solid. The Genie and the Genie Mini are not ready for Prime Time. They are still in the early stages of development — riddled with bugs, like maggots on an old hamburger. Unmitigated junk.

#156. I can’t be 100% sure on this so I am listing this with a caveat. On Saturday night, I am sure (I think), that I scheduled Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini to record a Zack Brown special. Typically I do all of my recording requests, downstairs, on the Genie. Well, next morning, i.e. Sunday, I went looking for it. Not recorded. Now it is possible that I screwed up. I don’t think so, but I will give DirecTV the benefit of the doubt on this one.

#151. It did it AGAIN. Recorded the same movie TWICE. #51 & #147. As I have said before, I record a lot of movies especially when I have subscription to the premium movie channels. Then I can go for months without a sub. catching up on our backlog. So I hit record whenever I see a promising title. I can’t keep track of what I have already recorded. That is why we have computers. Bloody Genie. Bloody DirecTV. They are so stupid.

#152. The unresponsiveness of the Genie Remote Control when you first get going is getting beyond a joke. We sit there in front of the TV without being able to do nothing other than mutely watch the channel that is playing. The delay seems to be getting longer and it was already at around 4 minutes.

#149. It happened again … NO PLAYBACK of recorded program on the Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini. This time it was movie. I wanted to check it out to see what it was like. Selected it from the recorded list and hit play. BLACK, bloody screen. Same as #144. Nothing. NADA. Not even static. Had to punch 202 and get out. Tried again. Nothing. Then I hit FF … after a few minutes got video! This is garbage.

#150. Activating MUTE on the Genie ‘piece of garbage’ Mini continues to confound me. Not a record. #125. 4 attempts this morning. Record is bloody 6.
