A different missing plane

Post 138435 by mediocre deleted for the following reason: Sorry, I find the search interesting too, but we've had a post on this within the last year and a lot of other posts over the years, so the bare "they didn't find anything" doesn't seem to merit a new one. -- LobsterMitten

Also I'll admit it's just a very difficult topic to present here in a way that allows for civil discussion. We've talked about this a lot, see MetaTalk for background. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

Post 138348 by rhombus deleted for the following reason: I would love, love to talk at length about whether this is pitch-perfect Swiftian satire or lazy, stereotype-perpetuating clickbait, or both. But this doesn't seem to be well received and I can sort of see it may not work that well here, sorry. -- goodnewsfortheinsane
