It wouldn't surprise me if somewhere in his mad scientist's lab Artlav actually has a small black hole in a confinement field...
Curious you should mention that, since look what i just found floating around -

Artlav maybe has something to do with this: Radio Station UVB-76 / MDZhB. It is a radio station that transmits a buzzer ("The Buzzer") 24 hours a day and sometimes voice messages (probably coded).

Here is a web page from a listener who then relays the Internet.

The last message from the pilot reported an engine flame-out... those turbo props are more reliable than swiss watches if maintained properly, I wonder what caused it.

In 2011 in my country, a Saab 340 aircraft crashed, it was considered very safe aircraft (as the investigations said). The issue was that the engines failed (due to a severe freeze) and the plane crashed and burned.

That plane crash video is sickening to watch.

Yeah. People died. It's all well and good to speculate on stalls and engine failures, but the fact is that we all just watched lives end. I can only imagine the terror happening inside during the final moments.

The fact that there are survivors is astounding.

Yep. Seems to me this is quite "light" as far as air crashes go, in regards to speed and angle of impact - more similar to a crash landing than to a downward plunge. Also, reading the crash history of the ATR family, there seem to be plenty of occasions where there were survivors. I don't think I've seen such a high survival rate at the bigger jets.

Its also a matter of speed - such a turboprop even crashes slower than many airliners.

I had to take the MMPI test after work today. I got an astounding amount of money to fill in circles (overtime, I don't love it, but sometimes it's pretty awesome).


We have to take this silly test every 5 years. At least I'm in the clear for a while... :shifty:

Well, I'd rather prefer you taking some tests instead of someone with mental problems having some amount of control of a nuclear facility, if that's okay with you.:lol:
