Rebus: A couple of mates and I once pulled the chains of some visiting colleagues from the US. We all pretended to not know about 9/11.

That is ingenious and evil.

nobodys_goose: Just like every other "patriotic" event, just like every other "they were heros!" story, it'll fade in time. Usually once everyone involved has died. You don't see nobody bouncing up and down yelling "Remember the Revolution!" without that person being a complete nutzo. Here's the big clue people should pick up on...

No one really cares!

Can'tLetYouDoThatStarFox: Why do people place so much emphasis and sentimentality upon recurring dates? Dates are just a function of the mechanics of our solar system and calendar. It's not like the terrorist attack on that day or any other isolated event is actually cyclical and needs to be remembered every year at a specific time or the universe will end. Why is 9/11/2008 a better day for reflection than any other day of the year, such as 9/12/2008? There's no actual relationship. Has it become so attenuated that you need to be reminded by a mnemonic device inherent in the calendar once each year? Why not remember it every day at 9:12AM if it's so blatantly arbitrary? You know, you don't have to obsess over something on a certain day just because it gets television coverage and everybody around you is doing the same thing. You have a choice to be an individual. Some societal ceremonies are good and some of them are just stupid. If you can detach yourself from the emotional aspects of the events, you may realize that this practice is one of them.

I'll never forget the clueless assholes that started calling that afternoon wondering why their internet connection didn't work.

"Well sir, half the telephone exchanges for NY were in the basement of the Trade Center"

I think I got a total of one half-apology. The rest demanded their service be restored and a credit to their account for the lost time.

Sullasdog: Yeah. Funny. Assholes.

Statistically speaking; In the roughly 15 minutes between your post and mine, one person has died in a car crash in the USA. That trend will continue: 1 person per ~12 minutes, ~120 people a day, ~43,000 people per year.

Nobody makes a big deal about them on a national scale. Nobody.

There's a difference between "forgetting" and "getting over it" - and you need to get over it.

I would like to point out this is the first mention of Osama in the thread. Not only do people not care to remember; people don't even want justice anymore.

It's amazing how many people still think that 93 wasn't shot down my our military.


Or how many people still think that an airplane crashed into the Pentagon or that the twin towers came crashing down without the use of explosives.

TheNext: /back to your regularly schedulding bush bashing and talk of oil oil oil (which is also quite important, I might add)

I've been to Iraq. Seen it from the air and the ground. I'm going back soon. Anyone who says the Iraq war wasn't about oil has never seen that complete and utter shiathole. If there wasn't oil there, no one would care in the least about Iraq and it would be left to its own devices (see: all of Africa).

So please, justify and rationalize it all you like, but oil is the alpha and the omega when it comes to Middle Eastern policy.

No one in this world has forgotten 0.8181...

Hell, I'm originally from Canada. Northern Canada. The remotest backfark part of North America you can get to before you start running into polar bears. Whitehorse, Yukon, a town of 19,000 people. That afternoon the RCAF and some American fighters out of Alaska ended up forcing down Korean Air Flight 85 at Whitehorse International, because it was believed to have been another highjacked flight. They ended up evacuating all government offices - one of which I was working in at the time - and that was okay because the entire morning had the entire office crowding around the radios listening to what was going on in New York, and then crowding around listening to what was going on with Flight 85 and hoping that our little-ass town wasn't about to be wiped off the map because they decided to force that 747 down in Whitehorse instead of any place important, like Anchorage. I ended up spending the rest of the day at home, trying to get ahold of all of my friends in New York and my family in Seoul, to make sure everyone was alright.

No one in this world has forgotten 9/11. Unless you lived in New York or DC during the attacks, or had friends or family who were killed in the attacks - and if you did, I'm sorry, no one deserves to die like that - you have an equal share in that disaster with everyone else on Earth.

And your share, big or small, does not give you the right to hold it over peoples' heads to sell your book, your Government Authorized Non-circulating Liberian Legal Tender September 11th Commemorative $20 Silver Leaf Coin-Certificate, or your moribund political ideology.

farm machine: I was flying to the UK on 9/11. Left on the 10th from the east coast. I made my connection but my luggage didn't. American airspace was closed down and my luggage spent the next 10 days in Philly. I spent it in the UK.

The guy that picked me up at the airport asked me if I heard about things back in the states and my response was pretty much WTF??? When I reached the office I was told that I have to call the wife first thing to let her know I was ok. It was a wierd conversation.

U.S. airspace opened and the flight back was rather empty. Got to Philly to check on my luggage and they informed me that they sent it to the UK that morning. Had them send it back. Bonus was that all my clothes were clean when I got them back. They never left the suitcase.


Don't know if you were trying to be subliminal, but that got me hungry for a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich.

Samsaran: That day was a wake up call to the West that some elements within Islam, not all of Islam by any means, but a large proportion, had declared war on our culture.

The Muslims that are attacking Western culture are very similar to most Farkers: Unemployed, well-educated virgins who live with their parents.

How do we combat this? Get them jobs and get them laid.

9/11 is every true American's birthday. It was the day we were reborn into a new life; a life in which time we will forever be at war fighting for freedom -- well, freedom or some other vague concept the gov't uses to pull the flag over our eyes.

If this is freedom. I don't want to be free.

Wow...

I don't think I've ever been this disappointed and disgusted with Fark before... and that's saying a lot.

We all know that 9/11 is exploited and abused for ulterior gain, but that doesn't mean you need to be an insensitive jackass to bring that to everyone's attention. You are just as disgusting as the people who use it to push their agenda.

Perhaps one day you will be throwing yourself out of a window and we can laugh about how silly you look with your arms flailing around like crazy. Don't take that personally, though. Its Fark.
