    with everything said so far and the lack of debre and facts known could the black boxes have been placed at the site being looked at right after it disappeared before they started looking there and maybe the plain is somewhere on land in the hands of dishonest folks, yes the plain is big however this is a big world and there is alot of places to hide it ? what if we only find black boxes put there to distract everyone ?

    To: Paul Ginsberg, the audio guy on the Don Lemon cnn news show… I am sure that the team searching for the black boxes on Ocean Shield and HMS Echo are not only differentiating the pinger sound from natural ocean and marine life sounds; but they are probably also listening for sounds that the 777 aircraft might create at the bottom of the ocean. The Aircraft might be sitting on an unstable slope or on a gorge. This unstable environment might cause the aircraft to create sounds of creaking, breaking, tapping, cracking, scraping, groaning, squeaking, etc. If Boeing’s 777 aircraft wings can be forced to bend seventy degrees before they would crack or break off; and if the aircraft is sitting (balancing) on top of a gorge straddled by its winds; … or on a slippery slope; this unstable environment will expose the 777 aircraft to movement of some kind. Plus, I would also include items inside the aircraft that could possibly cause sounds. I hope the search team is listening attentively.

    Why not just drag a chain on the silt bottom with a acoustical sensor? This is how tennis refereeing determine if there's a let (hitting the net). A chain dragging over metal would make a lot of sound. It's cheap, simple and in the silt would minimize disruption on the bottom's surface.

    Give it a rest CNN. While we appreciate the importance of this story it does not rate having the endless specials and air time. Even Jon Stewart of The Daily Show commented how CNN isn't covering anything else. There are so many stories that need to be told – surely CNN can better utilize their reporting.
