Well with the 24/7 obsession it's enough of a global distraction. Quebec could secede form Canada and no one would care. Do they have photos of the wreckage???
I hear @SierraJim will appear on CNN to discuss "ping" theory. He'll be dropping a Stockli on it's tail and comparing it to a Blizzard and a Kastle. There's likely to be controversy over the Kabookie interpretation, but he's an expert in that. Probably will have to skype it since CNN doesn't want to pay him to go to SF. After a month they're looking for freebies. I hope he's prepared to discuss how much the Malaysian Govt. knows about Stockli's and will they allow the Swiss to conduct a proper "ping" test on their soil.
If all goes well he might have an early winter job in Australia translating the Swiss to the Malaysians to the CNN bobble heads. Towards that end it would be wise to film one of his tests on a boat in lake Tahoe. CNN needs to see he knows what water is and how it behaves. Maybe borrow some timing gear from @ScotsSkier for pretty red numbers and wires to appear in the background. If he wears some Beats headphones he'll be several steps above the Chinese "acoustic experts" they showed. Maybe though swap out the Snoop Dog hat for a baseball cap with some sort of US SSN __ hat. CNN does have some self respect. I guess I'd recommend the SSN Albuquerque over the SSN San Francisco since CNN viewers associate that with tie dyed pot smoking goof balls.
Should be an interesting off season for SierraJim!
