The transfer of 'something' on clothes? You call the cadaver from a corpse 'something'? Something that wasn't in any of the other apartments or cars in the car park, weeks after a child has gone missing. I'm not sure you really appreciate how skilled and highly trained these two dogs are. The Met charge £530 per day for crime scenes across the world to use them. The FBI are frequent clients of Eddie and Keela. And I can tell you are in no rush about it, twelve years on and you still think she vanished without explanation and think trained police dogs bark when they sniff a dropped ice cream. Your ignorance is appalling, you should really clue yourself up on the facts, man.
The logistics of hiding a body, then moving it for that long, and under that level of media spotlight and pressure would be a nightmare for the most experienced criminals and planners in the world, with years to prepare. I just don't see how there's any way it could've been done. Even if the entire 'party' were all involved and in cahoots, it just seems so unrealistic and such a stretch to pull off.

Aye, I did mention the possibility of there being a body in the trunk previously but that'd be a bit of a stretch.

I never thought about the possibility of clothes or artefacts of Maddie being in the car and triggering them though. I'm naw sure how plausible that is either as the dog only seemed to alert at one specific area of the house. If even that could alert them surely it would have alerted at other things/places with such an insignificant transfer...like Kate or Gerry's clothes or summin? We'd also then need to assume that the mccans stripped her before disposing of her which would be weird too...we're getting right into Joe E conspiracy theory territory at this point.


Was the whole group leaving their kids alone? MCanns just the unlucky ones? Not a defence, just strange the other parents ain't as criticized for doing exactly the same thing.
Agreed on most of that, but the final bit is pretty understandable. The other parents are not criticised as much, because they're not well known, and they're not well known because they're not in the public eye selling books etc, and they're not doing that because their kid didn't disappear. More to the point, why are you writing criticised with a "z"? Do you have a star spangled banner on your lawn now?

Fuck it. I've gone native, man.

I held out for as long as possible but think about it...i'm in work writing emails and shit using 'our' English, I've got Microsoft red lining the fuckin' shit oot me and people reading my emails like "who's this fuckin' retard writing critisized with an s".

So, I decided to just go all in, Ztrike.

Yeah I can see why. I've had to write in US English for most of the past 8 years and use words like sneakers etc for the kids. It did actually lead me to sometimes question of my spelling was right when I did something in UK English and it was red lined. Some of their words are shit, but most of their spellings actually make more sense. Fuck all reason to be going around chucking "u" in half the things we do, and the z spelling mirrors the phonetics better too.

Aye, it's definitely more simplistic.

I don't mind the writing part of it but I can't bring myself to use a lot of their words. I was talking to @Crean face the other day about it actually. Whilst I'll try and conform mostly I have to be very careful not to form a habit given the risk of slipping up in front of my mates. Chips, sneakers, restroom and could care less are a step too far.

Oh I won't use those terms with adults, but I had to for teaching, but would always tell them the British version too, if they were advanced enough to understand a sentence explaining different terms. The only US terms I have found myself using sometimes are "that sucks" and "bathroom". Most of the time the toilet in a house is in a bathroom, so that one is not too bad.

I have the US English spellcheck on and cant be arsed to change it. The Red lines trigger me really basd so I end up writing everything with US spelling.

Its a terrible situation.

Could care less makes zero fucking sense.

Unless there's an important not served number in my call history and text/What'sApp message. But I'm not up for murdering any children or being suspected of it.

Is this during the meal when they claimed they were checking or do you mean that none of the Tapas 7 left the table after it was known she was missing?
During the meal, the podcast says an American reporter spoke to the staff who worked at the Tapas restaurant on the night and they did not leave the table , this checking system did not happen.

Castle Duckula.
Where were the other children of the other families staying while the parents were having fizz and food? The McCann's apartment was fairly close to the restaurant, but I've never seen where the other apartments that were to be checked on are. The excuse Gerry and Kate had so that they felt alright to leave kids alone was that they were still near, the other parents can't surely have the same excuse? The tale for the full group sounds absolute crazy.

Will give this series a watch over the weekend.

The parents of a missing girl did a "no comment" interview. Without having watched it I can tell you what I think already.

This shows where they were all staying. The other parents were at the meal with Kate and Gerry though so the only people in those rooms displayed in the picture were the children of the various families on holiday with Kate and Gezza

That is a bit misleading. I think that they answered all the questions previously but they refused to answer questions in later interviews once they were declared Arguido.
