    Hey now don't pick on michael. Leave the poor guy alone, the greatest pop star of all time
    and to this day still my favorite. Think i'm the only one i've ever heard blaring thriller or billie jean as i drive down the street with the windows down.

    The sun lightens hair because the UV light triggers the breakdown of melanin molecules into simpler and evidently less colourful compounds. Sun darkens skin because it triggers the production of melanin, a brownish-black pigment that helps filter out harmful ultraviolet rays.

    The black box is made of three layers. A harded steel or titanium covering, with insulation underneath to protect against high impact crashes. Underneath that is fireproofing, a special material that allows the box to withstand hours at high temperatures, so making a full sized plane like this would probably impossible to fly ( and too expensive). Dunno why they call em black boxes either, cos they're bright orange to be spotted easily.

    Oh the helmets? They were for radio contact only, didn't help much with the collision!
