Assuming we are talking about the satellite photos....
Was is Google Maps or people wanting to find something in a sea of nothing? Sort of feels like folks who don't know what they are talking about just making ***** up to me. They randomly found something and tried to fit it into the picture instead of letting the evidence create a picture.
If the plane went down intact, the odds of there being large wreckage is super low. When planes hit the water they typically disintegrate unless it's a rock skip landing. If they could do that I think there'd be more surface evidence.

In my EDH Cube I have a Forcefield that I hate because of the white borders. I've thought about extending the art or black bordering it, but I think that Tundra guy above has the right idea. I could make it look pretty and never sell it or trash it and never sell it... which is more fun?Posted in: Commander (EDH)

Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from rujasuI mean, I don't like to see cracks, and I don't like people seeing my crack. But is THIS really the biggest problem we're facing as a community?!
Magic players acting like the rest of the world doesn't exist and ignoring basic social norms? Creating an unwelcome and repulsive (technical definition) environment for new players and outsiders? Honestly, yeah, I think it probably is... or at least up there. I go into card shops and find myself avoiding a lot of the players simply because of their social signals. Where these "The world is my catbox" people play, I've notices steep declines in casual play.
I don't think I've posted this in a while:
I see a lot #1 and #2 in here.

Also, is the double s really better than the 1337 you had before?
Uh yeah it is. Nothing says 16 year old like a 1337 username.

SE Asia is a great place to get stolen passports and they don't check them against any sort of database of stolen passports. It's mildly suspicious, but I wouldn't go too far down that line of thought until there is more proof that it's anything except a coincidence.Posted in: Water Cooler Talk
The idea that it could have made it to another country is so close to impossible - the plane crashed and the various flight groups are racing the clock to find the wreckage. I honestly can't see any chance of there being any survivors since in open ocean crashes there are never survivors. The 777 isn't a bad plane, but there have been some glitches that make it clear it's not perfect - the electrical system has had some issues, but I think most planes do. There isn't anything in the history that shows a pattern that explains this one though. This one really feels like the Air France flight that vanished between Brazil and France a few years back and that was human error mixed with a bad plane.
I don't know at all, but if I had to guess based on what we've seen so far I would guess that there was an electrical problem in the cockpit. Pretty vague, but at this point the public doesn't know anything.

Can you imagine if there was an entire forum of people sitting around complaining about how 5 bedroom houses in desirable urban areas were too expensive with the same fervor, tone, and idiocy? That would be hilarious! The insulin or chemo forums - if there are such things - sure. You guys can rage.Posted in: Market Street Café
But when you have people who see a luxury item as something worth ranting about, it's insane. Hell, most of the people I know who complain about prices and ban lists are also the asocial lumps who don't have real jobs and live 5 adults to a 2 bedroom apartment because "someone else's fault."
Here's where my brain goes each and every time I hear someone talking about how high prices are unfair:
EDIT: The way Charlie starts that video is how I'd imagine a lot of people here are when they see a thread in Magic General.

I have the most simple solution to the cost of Modern... I don't play Modern.Posted in: Market Street Café
I don't get the entitlement or perceived need to play a game.

It doesn't typically attract the Yugioh crowd.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
It's played in places where alcohol and profanity are allowed.
1-2 cards rotate per year, but other than that I can rely on being allowed to play my cards.
Games are complex enough to be interesting.
The social side of it is my favorite though.

Posted in: Market Street CaféQuote from YomakoAt that rate, he'd be voted out next time.
That is not what Crackgate is. It's that fat dude with the pube beard who took the pictures of other fat dudes with pube beards's exposed butt cracks at SCG this weekend and posted them to Reddit. Let's fight about that here!

Black is great in Pillow Fort decks.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
It gives you 2-3 solid tutors, spot removal, both Sorins, No Mercy, Nihil Spellbomb, Animate Dead, Bitterblossom, and discard if you go that route.
