Know that, 13 years ago right now, nearly 3,000 people were being killed in the US along with up to a million more in the years to come.

When you say "this is overrated" do you mean "I think this sucks?"

When you say "the majority hate it" do you mean "I hate it?"

Ah, now that was living up to the 20th century, but I feel safe. Being ethnic Arab and all.

Seeing Smeargle made me think of what a boon 9/11 was for Internet culture and adult comedy. I don't know why but I can't imagine a world with South Park but not with 9/11 it's like the former needed the latter to thrive.

Yep.  I went on a run today and listened to the live recordings of the events as they happened.  It was motivation to run for me.

I remember that day.  I also remember how quiet the world was with all the planes grounded.  It was eerie.  Everyone was patriotic, everyone felt close.  We all wanted to do our part to help the victims, we all wanted to do our part to stop the terrorists.  Everyone was speculating who was responsible while it happened.  My dad even wanted to join the military after it happened. 

 

I was mad.  People I knew were mad.  We all wanted revenge...

 

This was our disaster.  Other countries have suffered disasters much worse.  This doesn't trivialize what happened on September 11th.  But we do not need to loose perspective.  Terrorism is a global issue.


Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

The damn day's back.

 

It sickens me to watch, but I feel some sorta duty to watch.

15 years later, nothing about netizens has changed one bit. At the same time, despite all the crude jokes and excessive cynicism, people got serious long enough to know we were in for some bad times...
