"May have faked his own death"
This thread is about conspiracy theories and elaborate plots.

Not to take the Daily Telegraph too seriously, I think the set of facts as presented recently is pretty interesting. Basically they reckon there's a few things that support the idea that he didn't ever crash, besides not having been able to find the crash site.

- The found 6 other planes while looking for his - one of the biggest searches in history
- A mistress ??
- Only one person saw him took off
- This person set up his plane, which is something he has never let anyone do before
- He picked a plane that was steel/fibreglass/wood with fabric and easilly dismantled and carried off
- No emergency equipment?

Anyway,
If I faked my own death, I would have to have my funds mobile, and lots of them. Really, it doesn't quite matter if he is discovered alive right? His funds were already mobilised by being declared legally dead in Februrary. And it won't be over an affair, I mean comon.

I'm think it will be something along the lines of 'The 11th Commandment' by Jeffery Archer. Except I don't know any old dudes whose body I can use for my fake death. And I don't have 90 million to steal to make it worth it! Basically, if can basically learn to fly light aeroplanes, a fossett-style escape would be preferable. Less flames and bodies and car crashes.

Also, I am pretty sure I wouldn't do it just for a mistress. I mean, I'm sure she's pretty and all... but that's a lot of effort! Maybe if the mistress killed the wife and was then blackmailing me. OOOh conspiracy...

What is your elaborate faked death scenario.

An octopus's garden? In the shade, perhaps?

I'm not sure if your article mentions it, but reading updates and other articles, they said where he supposedly crashed was probably the worst place to do so if you wanted a rescue party to come look for you. lots of hills, crevices, a lot of vegetation that made it hard to search from the air. they did find other crashes from years ago that they didnt even know where there, so his crash could still be out there...or he might have managed to disappear completely...

Yeah, and a privately funded team of proffessionals scoured some of the steepest slopes not accessible by blackhawks for 10 days last month and couldn't find anything. It's the biggest search in nevada history.
Also, there was no criminal investigation in his dissappearance at all. I'm not suggesting it's true, just that it is an interesting bunch of leads for a conspiracy theorist.

Hmmm, its kinda weird, i remember that 2 monthsish ago, i read a short story in the train on his disappearance. It hypothesized that he took off to somewhere argentina (where he had a mistress)....

Should there be a criminal investigation? i'm not clear on what he did wrong other than...disappearing

i didnt know about the search last month, but regardless...it's still a big big desert, full of caves...sometimes you can't even tell what you're looking at

well, faking your death is a crime.

Man, sometimes I wish that Heath Ledger's death was faked.  As a publicity stunt for Dark Knight.

Something that kindof pisses me off about that article was the whole spiel on "His choice in plane was unusual". Bellanca Citabria Super Decathlons are perfectly normal airplanes to fly. They're reliable, they're of sturdy construction, their in-flight stability is almost unparalleled by any other high-wing monoplane with a tailwheel, and they're readily available at just about every small airport in America.

He was also slated to be a judge at the Reno Air Races last year, an event he loved dearly and supported a great deal, both in spirit and in finance. Since flying was his number one passion, it serves to confuse me a great deal why on earth he would fake his death, knowing full well that it would be the end of his flying.

Another thing, one that I personally find offensive, is their mention of the huge sum of money that his life insurance was worth. The guy was world famous and loaded out the ass. He wouldn't need to fake death to get the insurance money.

I've always said that when I die, I'm going to be strapped with dynamite, dropped out of a plane above a major metropolitan area and detonated in midair.

Just think about how cool/awesome it would have been, if, at the Dark Knight Premiere, Ledger walks down the red carpet with Nolan and Bale beside him.  Ledger turns to all the journalists shocked and surprised, and says "Why So Serious?"

The Turks renamed that movie "Faggot Cowboys". To be completely fair, it's way more accurate than "Brokeback Mountain", but hot DAMN, Turkey, you're the last country I'd want renaming shit.

I gotta say, as sad as the scene was, *SPOILERS* when Jake Gyllenhaal's character got his face smashed in with a tire iron, his acting was so horrible that I couldn't stop laughing. *END SPOILERS and actually the entire post*

Actually it's less accurate. They weren't cowboys. They were quite clearly shepherds. They were, however, unquestionably herding sheep on Brokeback Mountain. Therefore "Brokeback Mountain" = 100% accurate, "Faggot Cowboys" = 50% accurate at best.

They weren't cowboys.

They referred to themselves as cowboys.

"Faggot Cowboys" = 100% accurate.

Is this the thread where we use faggot like it's just a basic word for a person?

Is that the reason for this thread?

Because Brokeback Mountain is a well-shot film that I personally found uninteresting. I feel like it was very heavy-handed and ultimately didn't even find any characters likable. Also, the gay sex scene was kind of hilarious because I've never even found straight sex to be that easy to figure out spur of the moment. I imagine it's more complicated betwixt two dudes who at least kind of thought they were straight.
