Either it is the biggest conspiracy in U.S. history since the JFK assassination, or an elaborate hoax has been perpetrated on the world.
Intellihub investigative reporter Shepard Ambella discovered that Phillip Wood, an American high-level executive at IBM, who was on Malaysian Flight 370, sent a text message and a pitch black photo from his iPhone on March 18 at 6:22 p.m., posted to a internet message board—ten days after the plane disappeared—with the following message:
I have been held hostage by unknown military personnel after my flight was hijacked…I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone… I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly.
This could be a hoax, except for the accompanying photo that was sent with the text. While the photo is simply a darkened image, as most people know, iPhones embed a staggering amount of metadata when a photo is taken, that include the exact GPS longitude and latitude coordinates of the phone. The coordinates indicate that Wood, according to Google Maps, is inside a large building on the Diego Garcia Naval Base. That the U.S. military hijacked Malaysian Flight MH370, diverted it to Diego Garcia and has imprisoned and/or killed the 239 passengers.

Why am I compelled to write?… Because the world I create in the writing compensates for what the real world does not give me. By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger… To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispel the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit… Finally I write because I’m scared of writing, but I’m more scared of not writing.

We fear what we do not know. There is great power and courage in overcoming our fears, and seeking knowledge.
Beautifully composed and delivered. Speaking up on contentious issues takes guts. Hollie does so with such eloquence.
Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
