I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been absolutely obsessed with this Malaysia Airlines saga. How can a plane just disappear? Where in the hell is it? What happened? I seriously Google for up-to-date news at least 10 times a day. I’m waiting for the Dateline special on this shit – though they can’t really do a special until they actually know what happened, I know.
In any case, I love unsolved mysteries (though on a serious note, I feel awful for the innocent victims of whatever happened here and I really do hope – even though it’s unlikely – that they are found alive and safe), and I also love Courtney Love. She’s batshit crazy but sometimes so much so that she actually kinda makes sense. Oh, and she’s sure she found Flight 370.
Here’s what Courtney told New York Magazine’s Daily Intelligencer:
Asked if she’d found the spot herself, Love told Daily Intelligencer, “Yeah I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures. I really doubt aliens took it. It’s got to be somewhere. I’m a little obsessive.”
Unfortunately, the spot in question had been previously noticed and ruled out by the crowd-sourcing service Tomnod. “Although it is still an interesting clue, it is looking much more like the other boats operating in the region,” Tomnod said prior to Love’s post. “Keep up the good work.”
“I mean I don’t know anything about aviation per se,” added Love via text.
“I saw an article asked people to help search on Tomnod.com so I decided to give it a shot,” she explained of her methods. “I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick. I found one and there appeared to be an object nearby. I don’t know if it is the plane or not, but I figured I’d do my part and bring some awareness to the site, for the sake of all the families involved.”
“I hope they find the plane, I pray they’re still alive, it’s sad and my heart goes out to all those involved,” she said. “It’s the least I can do.”
I love it, and I love Courtney Love’s dedication to solving this crime. I do seriously hope that they find this plane and the passenger soon. I can’t even imagine what their families – and they, if they are still alive – must be going through.
