Let's crowd-source this mystery.
Our initial idea was to create a decision-tree survey to quantify what you think. But before spending a lot of time on an algorithm, we decided it would be best to begin with a free-form comment thread of brainstorming. Please feel free to append your own ideas as well as links to interesting theories offered by others.
For what it's worth, the Wikipedia page on this event is a pretty good overview of what's known — and what's not (162 footnotes and counting). Are there other good real-time clearinghouses of information on Flight 370?
Depending on your response, we'll consider structuring ideas and any links posted here into something of a resource.
