jabelar: 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.

And people are just masses of organic molecules so no big deal if they're dead?

It takes all the humanity out of things to always reduce things to logic and science.


But that's a fallacy. It's not by any means a dichotomy between the extremes of reductio ad absurdum and letting our emotions rule us. We don't have to choose one or the other, there is everything in between. Reducing everything to a molecular or mechanical level is irrational, we clearly wouldn't be able to function. But that doesn't mean that we should throw out all reasoning and perspective. Questioning why it is that we are engaging in these now mindless rituals is the rational and individual choice, however you feel about it on an emotional level. I personally think it's being more in touch with what the event actually meant and the human side of it to NOT engage in these ceremonies and forced chanting sessions.

DROxINxTHExWIND: While I don't often agree with the guy you're responding too, I have to say that if you're only comfortable expressing your true beliefs or feelings when you can hide behind a cloak of anonymity that is the definition of what a "biatch" is and it IS cowardice.
That's not quite what I'm saying. I'm happy espousing controversial opinions in many different venues, where I have a reasonable belief that it's not going to cause shiat. I think you'd have to be stupid to go out of your way to inflame people that you're pretty sure are going to respond badly.

For example, you talk a lot about race relations on here. Are you really going to talk the same way to known-KKK members in person, or are you going to exercise discretion? Are you a coward and a biatch?

Exactly what you did do.

outatime: Just try to make them funny.

Rye_: I_Love_Cheesecake:
You do realise that the official story - that Osama Bin Laden and a rag-tag bunch of radical Muslims living in caves in Afghanistan masterminded the attacks - is a conspiracy theory, right?

Hey, good point. Maybe nobody's got it right.

To conspire means "to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end."

"Conspiracy theory": a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators

So, is that explanation meant to make me more open to one version of a story with no evidence than another? As I said, I don't know what happened what happened to that plane and neither do you.

In spite of your lack of evidence, what makes you believe that it was shot down? Is the "official story" too boring for you?


The official story is not very believable. As to what happened to flight 93, I, too, am not 100% sure. I do know that cell phone calls made at over 35,000 feet were impossible in 2001. Yet, apparently a bunch of flight 93 passengers managed to defy technology and do it.

The Dynamite Monkey: A man walks into a bar. The bartender says "Hey, did you hear the one about the people who had to jump out of the WTC?" The man replied, "Yes, you mom told me while I was farking her in the ass with a pineapple, you ignorant douchebag!"

I don't get it. Is his mom Saddam Hussein?

wylkyn: fatgail: So yes, i get what you mean, and I wanted to clarify that it wasn't what I was talking about.

Let me just start by restating that I don't make these kinds of jokes, at least not to people who I don't know. I do care about what other people feel, and I don't like to offend or make anyone feel bad. (So what the Fark am I doing here?)

I agree that to claim "grieving" is pretty weak. But the point that I was trying to make is that I don't think any of these so called "callous" people who make the jokes (or double them when they are challenged) even know why they really do it. I think it is as much a knee-jerk reaction as praying is to some people. I don't say this as a way to excuse, so much as just a way to understand. You can still call them on it...be my guest. I agree with you. But I also recognize the need to make tasteless jokes as a defense mechanism. It's just my take on it, and I wanted to throw it out there. Not trying to judge anyone or claim that I am above such things. We're all just meat puppets trying to cope with all the crap life throws at us, usually well after it has knocked us on our ass. I think, on the whole, we do pretty well most of the time...when we're not blowing shiat up.



Most people believe they're comedians, but really, after the Hogan picture is posted, you might as well go home. That's like trying to follow Redd Fox.

I_Love_Cheesecake: If the official story is based in fact, then why is Osama Bin Laden not wanted by the FBI for it? Shouldn't it be a slam dunk, what with all those "facts" pointing to him?

Hey truther, did you even read the farking Link??

"In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world.

REWARD

The Rewards For Justice Program, United States Department of State, is offering a reward of up to $25 million for information leading directly to the apprehension or conviction of Usama Bin Laden. An additional $2 million is being offered through a program developed and funded by the Airline Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association."

Man, I do not like Twoofers.
 
2008-09-08 04:55:18 PM  
One thing is for certain

Wether we are doing the right thing or not, the fact that the terrorist attack on 9/11 has not only killed roughly 3,000 people and cost us a few million to rebuild pales in comaprasin and goes beyond even their wildest dreams to think that they could have dragged us into a 7 year conflict, cost us trillions of dollars and thousands more in casualties all the while further alienating us from other muslim countries. After all, why put such great efforts into another attack when the one 7 years ago is still paying off for them?

Some insight from one who has been making jokes here. I don't joke to piss anyone off. But if I do inadvertantly offend, I believe that they can roll their eyes and continue down the comments untill they see someone or something they can connect with. However, if someone retorts negatively, I'll poke at them with more jokes untill they shut up and move on or untill I get bored with it. It's not greiving for me to make jokes, I just like to smile and laugh. And can at anything. Others here get it or don't. Nor is it a defense mechanism. It's just me being me. Now, I've been on the other side as well. In all my time coming to Fark, I've seen numerous articles related to drugs somehow. And in the comments there are always those who say, more or less, that users are losers. That anyone who does drugs is stupid and eats cheetos and looks like a street whore. I had a very good friend who overdosed shooting up. She was a beautiful girl who wasn't so far into it that she looked like a haggard whore. She did too much one day and that was the end of her. Not once have I replied saying that someone should 'take it back' or 'shut up for being stupid'. I don't launch into some diatribe about how users need help and have problems and everyone who disagrees needs to be beaten blah blah blah blah. Life is too short to stay pissed and jaded and..... aw hell, what am I explaining for. Fark onward! I'm really not stopping here for any reason other than I have to poop real bad.

A few months ago I had the TV on while I was doing other things and my head popped toward the TV when a commercial began advertising their "limited edition Twin Towers collector's coin."

Seriously, nobody cares about 9/11 anymore. The only people who pretend to still fervently care are trying to exploit it to get you to buy something.

Including "the guy" who called 911 right before the missile hit them?

I know the other guy said that, not you, but it underscores the reason not to believe whatever you feel is the truth simply because it sounds better to you than the "not very believable" official story. You can't make a convincing argument about something this important without some kind of evidence to back up what you're saying.
 
2008-09-08 05:00:42 PM  
I think a lot of this 9/11 humour isn't funny in itself. What's funny is the butthurt and self-righteous reactions from completely random strangers.

I feel for the people that lost people they know, and the people that had the trauma of witnessing the event firsthand. But you're a random Farker living hundreds of miles away from NYC? Stop crying, and stop pretending to be patriotic. Look up the term "recreational grief".

anopheles: EVERY group has a band of wackos who are intent on destroying society to fit their goals. The VAST majority of Muslims (including every one that I know personally) feel terrible about this, and are trying to show the world that Islam IS a peaceful religion.

/And the word of the day, children, seems to be bigotry.
//Sorry for feeding the trolls.
///And, if you want to see what happens when conservatism wins, just look in the Middle East. This is what happens when conservative traditions triumph over reason and tolerance.


Thank you. I was going to try to make this point earlier. Samsaran said a "large proportion" of the Islamic community has declared war on the West. Since well over a billion people in the world are Islamic, if it really were a large proportion, then I think we would be dust by now. I think that a small group of extremists are the ones who are actively engaging in acts of war/terrorism.

I'm willing to believe that a larger percentage (larger than that of the extremists anyway) might harbor feelings ranging from distaste for our culture to outright anger, but we all know that even feelings of anger and hatred rarely get translated into direct violent action. Most of the less-educated Islamic people in the Middle East probably only have a view of us colored by whatever propaganda their government feeds them, just our poorer populations do of them. Continuously bombing the snot out of them probably didn't help either.

But there is a large Islamic community outside of these areas who are not "out to get us." They may view us with some concern lately, but who can blame them? When there's a witch hunt going on, even the nicest little old ladies get nervous.

Yeah, you're right. What was I thinking, trying to sympathize with people who had to see their loved ones leap from a crumbling skyscraper? I guess I kinda figured it'd suck if it happened to me so I feel bad for those it did happen to.

Maybe you should stop thinking of others as random Farkers and see them as other people?

Yeah. Well, maybe some day when you actually decide to care about something instead of just being the center of the universe,you'll realize that life isn't just a hundred million jokes. It's funny that I would get into this argument since i'm a "just keep laughing" jokester myself.

I just think that when you hear someone say "your joke hurt my feelings" and your reaction is to "poke them with a stick and keep making jokes", you've got kind of a skewed, distinctly 'unfun' viewpoint. I mean, do you do that in real life as well?

Had one to be exact. Used to believe I was entitled to truth, justice, separation of church and state. Yeah, I was all farked up. I got ahold of a copy of the Constitution when I was ten and it really put my head in the laughable clouds.

I'm all better now, though. I point and laugh at everything, disbelieve anything I'm told, and listen to twits babble in talking points for as long as I can pysically stand it. Drinking helps a lot.

It WAS possible in 2001. Every GSM cell phone has a range of at least 25 miles. Those planes are about 7 miles up, which is well within their workable range, and within line of sight.

So, why can't we use cell phones on planes? Because cell phone switching between dozens of towers is very hard to figure out at such high speeds. And, since planes don't travel along roadways where towers generally are, so you are more likely to encounter dead zones.

And frankly, I don't know how "cell phones don't work at 35,000 feet" is a factor that proves a shoot down theory?

Well, the difference between a tough guy and a wimp is that the tough guy isn't afraid to take an ass whipping. I never said I'd win every battle, but I wouldn't be afraid to fight it.

trappedspirit: toonz: So no, I didn't read it the way I wanted to see it. I read it the way it has turned out.

Bin Laden, so what? I got Saddam for daddy!

Yes, when you say that press conference was where he said he didn't care about Laden you are completely interpreting it the way you want. If you'd like to outline the specifics of the effort placed so far in finding Laden, and where those efforts should have been increased so as to achieve the goal of capturing him, I'd be glad to listen. Otherwise, I don't think you know how to track down Laden and I think you are just Bush hating.

It's a free country and you can do that, but if you are saying that Bin Laden was locatable by now and that we stopped trying, have something to back that up instead of a gut feeling.


I make no pretense. I'm no fan of the guy.

I DO think the invasion of Afghanistan was justified and had the full support of the people, not just here, but of most nations. Troops were reduced there and sent to Iraq for reasons which are vague at best, to put it politely.

If troops were kept in Afghanistan we would have been better able to quell the resurgence of the Taliban and blanket more terrain in the hunt for Bin Laden.

Many less American lives would likely have been lost, our standing with the world would still be one of sympathetic righteous warrior rather than bumbling superpower in a dick-waving contest with an invisible enemy, and hey, maybe we'd even have Bin Laden already.

If I had specific tactics to catch him, I sure as hell wouldn't be posting them online, I'd give them to the government.

If that makes me a bile-spewing anti-American Bush-hater, I apologize.

Really. How did he lie to them, before he even got into office? You really DO know about all of the Democratic congresspeople who, during the Clinton administration, talked about SH's WMDs, right? Or could you be the one person in the world who hasn't gone to snopes and plugged "WMD" into the search box?

Oh, and save the "I'm not even a Democrat" line. Someone lying about Bush is just like Democrats lying about Bush, so it doesn't matter what party you pretend not to be sympathetic with.

big deal. the quote wasn't 100% true. I mistakenly thought it was. when I realized it wasn't I posted the actual quote.

something YOUR BOY WOULD NEVER DO. so, whatever.

I stand by my overall assessment of him and his mishandling of damn near everything since he lost sight of the Afghanistan campaign and "hunting down THOSE RESPONSIBLE" for the attacks on 9/11

Owangotang: simian04: Owangotang: Some things just aren't funny. Oh you can make all the snide, classless remarks about them you want but it still doesn't make them funny.

And people wonder why I am rooting for Apophis to crash into the planet in 2036.

I'm rooting for that too. I think the look on your face once you actually see it happening will be funnier than anything ever. EVER.

It's not about the funny. FFS not everything in life has a punchline, no matter how hard you look for it.

We deserve it, plain and simple.


Everything does have a punchline. And you don't have to look for it, it's just there.
And what's this 'we' business? So you speak for all of mankind, eh? Well don't break your leg jumping from your high horse to run when you see Apophis hurling your way. Hell, if you want devistation so bad, why not just fly a plane into a building and take out a small handfull of people who 'deserve it'. Now, you can either laugh or cry, but whatever you do, get the fark out of the way. CHRIST, I HAVE TO shiat SO BAD NOW!!! Ok, I'm out for the time being. Probably for good here. Tip your waitresses, try the veal.

simian04: It's just me being me.

Why don't you try being someone a little more funny or engaging, or just plain worthwhile? Your explanation for making jokes about 9/11 basically amounted to "I'm an asshole!". I didn't bother to click on your profile, but you come across as kind of insecure and childish.

At the very least, making 9/11 jokes is a little tired, it's been seven years, you know? Come up with some new material, entertain us for a change.

9/11, 9/11... wasn't that when the terrorists killed 3000 innocents, you know, just before the US military killed 100,000 innocents?
