What if we never find the plane?

The world is on the edge of its seat.. Rescue workers, military officials, a number of nations, and an airline are all desperate to find any sign of wreckage from flight MH370.

The Boeing 777 was at a normal altitude cruising smoothly when it vanished from radar and lost all contact with the known world.

This is a rare disaster.. While there's precedent for a plane to be missing this long--the Air France flight that crashed in 2009--this one is even weirder. This go around, there's little evidence that anything was wrong, no distress calls, and now a mystery of at least four stolen passports .. Malaysia has now contacted counter terrorism organizations about the passport issue on flight 370.

Aircraft are frantically searching the South China Sea for evidence, wreckage, remains.. anything.

There was a plume of oil. But that's it. Nothing else but the oil was associated with that find--and there's nothing much concrete to say that it had anything to do with the flight crashing..

The area being searched has been widened.  Now officials are looking into a possibility that the plane turned back..

This is one of the world's safest aircraft. And it vanished without a trace..
Earlier today I likened the story to the plot of LOST.. now I changed my tune, thinking more it is like it's stuck in limbo, or in some weird Twilight Zone episode.. Or maybe even like Stephen King's THE LANGOLIERS.. the LANGOLIERS was the tale of a red-eye flight across county that vanished from the real world and entered another realm, where giant creatures were eating time and attempting to eat them since they were lost in the middle of two timelines..

While a varied amount of pop culture or horror references could be made, it may be in bad taste since this is a real event with tragic implications. 227 passengers and 12 crew members have families, friends, and stories.. And suddenly their lives are apparently over with their families having to come to grips with not even knowing where they are..

But .. it's just so freaky.
And the notion of the plane itself never being found? There's no secrets on earth that can last for any extended period of time. It would be assumed that some type of evidence or wreckage will be located.. assumed. Assumptions are plenty today.. as a missing airline stays missing.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment."
