Jake Finley causes plane crash
« on: May 24, 2005, 02:41:00 pm »
As reported on CNN this evening, a plane crashed 13 km to the south of Sheerbrooke, in the province of Qu├ębec in Canada. There was only 4 people in the plane but no one survived to the accident.

According to CNN news, the pilot would have lost control of the plane high in the air, causing the plane to crash near the forest then continue its course until it reache the road then explode. When the fireman searched the plane they found a laptop, next to the pilot, with a floppy disk in it containing calculator games. There was also a calculator in the pilot pocket, but no one could tell what was the model since its face burnt in the accident. Apparently, just before the accident occur, the pilot was browsing the Epic Programming Studio forums on the internet while controlling the plane, and he would have lost control just a few second after he notice that Jake Finley (CrimsonCasio), one of the forum admins, reached 1000 posts on the forums. Hopefully more information will be found in the black boxes in the burned plane and the country will probably vote for a new law, prohibiting Internet access in motorised vehicles, to avoid this tragedy to happen again.

UPDATE (05/25/2005 7:59): More news: According to the medias, the calculator next to the pilot is none other than the almighty Casio ClassPad 300 with a touch screen. The pilot was looking for some news about Lydonia for this calculator model but when he saw CrimsonCasio post count he got hit by a traumatism, causing him to lose control completly but they are still sure that the accident was caused by Jake FInley reaching 1000 posts, not by the fact he was surfing on the EPS forum and looking for news.

 I should realy back up the old news, but since it would mess up news order I'll put them in a news archive sub forum I think
