No, not everyone is the same, nor expected to react, or grieve, in the same manner, but when some paint the event in an extraordinarily callous manner, I don't think you can call that grieving.

Seven years since the Jews and the US government tore down WTC with the help of explosives and managed to fool the goyim to think Muslims did it. Time sure flies by.

I've totally forgotten the last couple years or so until something shows up on TV or on a webpage. It's a shame the towers haven't been rebuilt yet. That's very shameful.

GoodyearPimp: 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.

Window into the soul of real America.


Actually, it's funny, I live in brooklyn heights, right across the bridge, and apparently my covad connection was routed under the trade center. Maybe because of the location of that exchange or whatever, we didnt lose internet till a few days *later*, when the backup power that was powering the switches our traffic went through failed and they had to reroute our traffic (which took a while).

I remember bringing people, covered in white soot, upstairs to use our phone, internet, and bathroom as they came off the bridge. Wierd part is I cant remember any faces, just the soot.

Samsaran: mister aj: Be aware though that Klukkers don't like to play fair. You might be a tough mofo, but that pale white dude you just yelled at? Once you're gone, he'll be phoning up all his confederate buddies to chase you home in their clapped-out pickup truck.

People in the South are not at all intimidated by the "angry black man" bullshiat like Drox likes to play here on Fark. Consequently, the races show each other more respect than you see in big cities in the North and West.


I've been hearing this retarded claim for years, starting in my own family ("Yankees are more racist, they're just quiet about it"). I know you were hoping this was unprovable bullshiat when you posted it, but (un)lucky for you, it's not!

Take a look at the data. Of the top five states for ratio of black income to white income, how many of those are southern states? How many are northern or western states? Of the bottom five, how many are southern and how many are northern?

The South (less educated, history of defense of slavery, poorer and having a higher concentration of blacks) is clearly and provably more racist than the North! Who knew (absolutely everyone)?

I do have to thank you, though, I scoured the internet looking for data to disprove your claim. So you've increased my research abilities and ammunition against future internet racists I might encounter. Thanks, Samsaran!

sleeps in trees: It's a sad day yes, but is annoying is that people criticize others for not showing respect yet 9/11 has been turned into a commercial and political freakshow.

Coins, hats, crying eagles superimposed over a flag. Shirts, cards, keychains, and sparkly computer graphics with angels. Corny poems, songs questioning patriotism, finger pointing at fellow citizens, reasons for unjust wars, and racism. Election ads, 24 hour news coverage weeks in advance, documentaries, and movies.

All deliberately done to manipulate and squeeze every last ounce of emotion from people.

That is what people are tired of.

There seems to be a little confusion here, so I'd like to offer a few observations. I do vividly remember watching the news on 9/11, and saw lots of footage of the events. I do not remember seeing Hulk Hogan in any of that news coverage. Frankly, I'm a little leery of the Hogan pics posted above. I suspect that Mr. Hogan may have been Photoshopped in.

Wife and I worked at 4WTC. I had been on the 72nd floor of 1WTC1 about two weeks before on a sales pitch...I have no idea what happened to those folks.

Any, IMHO, ridiculous that there is still a hole in the ground.
Not sure which is worst, that or the devasation that still exists in New Orleans area.

Probably could have rebuilt everything for the cost of that war 5x over.

mister aj: 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".


So you you reply with a "you'll get over it" comment about a childhood friend of mine that died in the WTC??? I am over it, but sadly his family probably never will be.

fatgail: simian04: 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.


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?


Soooo you think that I think that I'm the center of the universe? Interesting. Shall I tell you about my mother now, Mrs Freud? Gosh, you're insightful. And I'll tell you, life is a hundred million jokes. A hundred million jokes running around, pretending they know what's going on and what's right and wrong, and where to go and what to be. You and I are two of those hundred million jokes. And we're funny as hell. Difference between your joke and mine, is that I can laugh at both of us and everyone else. You, obviously, cannot. For the record, not one person here has stated simpley that I hurt their feelings. If they had, and had been sincere, I would've apologized in some way. Probably. Now fark off fatty. ;P

mccallcl: 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.


Silly monkey, I don't try to be funny. I say and think what I think is funny. If I think others might think it's funny, I put it out there. If you don't like it, move along. Simple. And I didn't come in here making 9-11 jokes. If you had read me from the beginning, I made a comment about something funny that happened between my girlfriend and I. Then the moaners and wailers started in and I just let it fly. Laugh or cry, I don't care. And really, how engaging can one be when the only people to be engaging with are farkers, come on. That's like a joke in itself. Now go away from me, you give me the runs.

amoeba: I'll always remember 9/11/01 because it was the day I received my first blowjob. Me and my girlfriend were totally oblvious as to what had happened that morning, as we had skipped school to chill at the river. It was one of the best days of my life, a day full of swimming, relaxing, a picnic and of course experiancing one of Man's Rights of Passage.

But fark me was that day ever ruined when I got back home. Of course no one cared that we cut school, or what we did, or where we were. Everyone was just in that state of shock, especially my mom, being a native New Yorker.

What a farking day.


I hope this story is true, because it may be the greatest one i've ever heard. I would watch a movie based on it. Call it "Blow Me on 9/11"

IN TALL BUILDINGS

Someday, my baby, when I am a man,
And others have taught me the best that they can,
Sell me a suit, cut off my hair,
And send me to work in tall buildings.

So its goodbye to the sunshine, goodbye to the dew,
Goodbye to the flowers, and goodbye to you.
I'm off to the subway. I must not be late.
I'm going to work in tall buildings.

When I'm retired, my life is my own.
I've made all my payments. its time to go home.
Wonder what happened betwixt and between,
When I went to work in tall buildings?

/RIP John Hartford

On 9/11, I was working for a law firm in SF. On that day, I woke up and the minute I turned on the TV it was pretty much all over. I wondered if I should go to work, but I did anyways. The downtown was pretty deserted and most people didnt go to work or if they did, they turned around and went home.

At the office, my boss acted like it was just another day. One of the attorneys didnt show up. He was from the East Bay. However, he called like late morning while I was in the boss' office and the following conversation ensued.

Boss: Where are you and why are you not here?

Coworker: Well, I thought because of what happened...I'm not sure if I should be in the office.

Boss: Why?!! Are you needed to defend Oakland against the terrorists? Get in here.

This is the kind of story that confuses me. Yeah, the boss could have been less of a dick about it, but why exactly should a tragedy 3000 miles away affect your coworker's ability to go to work? If he had family or friends in NY at the time, maybe that would be understandable but you make it sound like he just decided not to go into work because he saw something shocking on TV...

Sure, it was shocking, but life has to go on. At the very least, shutting down business would have been completely giving into the terrorists even if the attack had happened on the same coast. Why this one event? I'm sure your coworker didn't decide he needed the day of on the day of Virginia Tech, Katrina or any other shocking news events...
