I voted no. It's a tie. I like that people vote but don't post.

No I like to hear everyone's opinion. A lot of people vote in polls and never give their opinion on it.

i say no...........
Part of the money was found, and they really never were able to pin-point his drop area which was during a storm. The remote area, lack of gps back then, and no matter how prepared he was, his jump area would still be a half-a** guess on cooper's part------probably a lot, lot, lot less accurate than our well-planned airbore jumps at Normandy......

but America loves a mistery and tends to root for the underdog and in some cases idolize the underdog--just as they did Dillinger.

The db cooper case has become legend................

I just looked in to see what the score was, and noticed that its 54% yes & 45%no. What happened to the other 1%?

It rounds off the numbers...11 votes total, 6 votes yes...so...6/11=.545 or 54.5% or rounded to the nearest whole number 54%.

And 5 votes no...so...5/11=.454 or 45.4%...rounded is 45%.

So that solves the answer to the mystery of the missing 1%.

Like I've said before (or at least I think I have), a base 10 number system is by no means perfect....in fact, there are many flaws in it....I have never understood why we don't use a base 2 (binary) number system.....0's and 1's.....it either tests as true, or it tests as false....simple as that.....

No way. He jumped from an airliner into a pacific northwest winter storm without any gear.

They found the remains of a packet of that money...but, far as I know, none ever showed up at banks...they had the serial #s recorded....some deer probably ate the rest....what a shame....think of the guns and ammo it could have bought....

Think of what 200K in '71 could have been invested in. If you put it in a mutual then, caught the Reagan boom and pulled it out to put it on Microsofts IPO.

I need a time machine.
