And people laugh at me when I tell them I want a bloody bomb shelter. I doubt that'll be the case now.
2001-09-11 01:40:50 PM  
Unbelievable :(
2001-09-11 01:41:08 PM

I want to find out how much more traffic internet as a whole is handling because of this. Even Fark is getting farked.
2001-09-11 01:41:47 PM  
This is not war, nor should it be war.

That's my final post for a while.

I hope the rest of this day is peaceful, and my heart is with those who have experienced tragedy this day.

I don't know what people can be thinking to do shiat like this. even if you hate everyone in the world it is you that has the problem and don't be taking it out on everyone else
2001-09-11 01:44:09 PM  
We're not getting farked, we're preventing it. Bandwidth spiked pretty good before we started scaling it back
2001-09-11 01:45:35 PM  
Good job to everyone at DCR for keeping things running guys rock!
2001-09-11 01:45:49 PM  
Drew: Really appreciate it. Fark is definitely my news source for the day. Keep up the good work.
2001-09-11 01:46:10 PM  
well on the upside,
we wont have to hear about farkers bands/ebay auctions for a while

i keep asking myself:

2001-09-11 01:46:41 PM  
Senator McCain wants martial law to be declared.
America is going to start sucking so bad.
2001-09-11 01:46:45 PM  
Michael... before you go. I understand what you are writing about and those have been my thoughts today also. People need to understand what exactly is going on in Israel.
2001-09-11 01:47:12 PM  
Yes, Fark has been more up-to-date than any other news source- special thanx to wiseass for the accurate military info.
2001-09-11 01:47:21 PM  
Yeah, kick-ass Drew. And cheers to all you farkers too for keeping it to real news, not spreading rumors or anything.
2001-09-11 01:47:54 PM  
it really does suck that the world has to be like this.
2001-09-11 01:47:55 PM  
From CNN: All the planes were headed to California, so all of the tanks were full of fuel when the planes crashed.
2001-09-11 01:48:14 PM  
I commend Drew and fark for doing everything in their power to remain open as the exchange of information from around the world is staggering here
2001-09-11 01:48:19 PM  
Thanks again for Fark Drew, I've been the news source for the office this morning. Office is shutting down, I have to head home, see y'all in a few hours (if I get home, I live 5 minutes from Ft Lauderdale Int'l Airport).

2001-09-11 01:48:56 PM  
Hooray for Fark. NYC blood donation centers: click here.
2001-09-11 01:49:10 PM  
And, to the point, Fark has been UP much more than any other news source. To Drew and the crew at DCR - Great job, y'all.
2001-09-11 01:49:33 PM  
1000 Jehads on people with brown skin!!!!
2001-09-11 01:51:02 PM  
Eltardo - I'm glad I'm in Switzerland. By law, every house must have access to a bomb shelter...
2001-09-11 01:51:43 PM  
Fellow farkers: Refineries are closed gas stations are running low on gas. If you need fuel, Go get it now.
2001-09-11 01:51:53 PM  
I don't even know what to say to you, Bamf... That's just disgusting.
2001-09-11 01:52:12 PM  
I'm moving to Switzerland if they try to draft me
2001-09-11 01:52:19 PM  
thanks Biz...I'm on my way.
2001-09-11 01:52:47 PM  
Thanks again for keeping fark up and running Drew.

Now I apologize for some politics in advance folks....Not that all politicians don't piss ppl off but our friend W has pissed off most of the WORLD latley with his i don't give a damn attitude. To everyone who is thankful that we have this ignorant isolationist pres in office -- consider this: his attitude may have directly incited this violence.
2001-09-11 01:53:03 PM  
It wouldn't surpise me if this led to a declaration of war against the country that is harboring the group that did this. It will become the justification the US needed to modify it's policy to do just that. It is unlikely that any country will want to harbor any terrorist group after the dust settles from this.

I do not know the numbers, but looking at the buildings and the location i would bet that there were more people killed from these attacks that were killed at the attack on pearl harbor. Taking that into perspective gives a new light of severity on today.
2001-09-11 01:53:30 PM  
Goddamn Fox News had Oliver North and were asking him what he thought. What the fark?
2001-09-11 01:54:04 PM  
I went home on my lunch hour and displayed my U.S. Flag with pride. I only wish I had a larger flag & pole.
2001-09-11 01:54:45 PM  
Can anybody confirm the fuel problem
2001-09-11 01:56:05 PM  
By the time it is confirmed, there will be little fuel...
2001-09-11 01:56:47 PM  
Well anybody or groups that would do anything like this is going to pay, we're all going to be affected by this in one way or another and whoever did this should be tourtured to death...............
2001-09-11 01:56:52 PM  
Cost of fuel to rise, energy crunch on the way, thanks BizB, although only the messenger
2001-09-11 01:57:23 PM  
Anyone know if the blood donated in middle-America would reach NY & DC?
2001-09-11 01:57:44 PM  
little fuel? huh?
2001-09-11 01:58:03 PM  
Sorry, folks, that was an expected "failed" test post...

I'm not really that naive, but it is a good idea to stock up...
2001-09-11 01:58:24 PM  
rumors will cause a fuel problem if everyone runs out to buy it at once
can anyone confirm source on that?
2001-09-11 01:58:27 PM  
I have found a more or less reliable news source..

Here is something I have not seen listed elsewhere:

Sources report about 70 confirmed dead at the Pentagon following an
explosion caused by a crashed airplane this morning. Another airplane that
may have been hijacked and heading to Washington, D.C. was reportedly downed
near Camp David. Palestinians denied responsibility for an attack on the
World Trade Center, AP reported, after the Democratic Front for the
Liberation of Palestine said it was responsible. The plane which crashed
near Pittsburgh was identified as a 747, and is believed to have originated
from either Cleveland or Pittsburgh. 1522 GMT, 091101

Source is

They have a good point too..
For U.S. intelligence to have missed an operation of this magnitude indicates one of two things. First, the competence of U.S. intelligence is overrated or the willingness of policymakers to heed warnings has declined. In either case, the system is badly broken. Alternatively, the sophistication of terrorist counter-intelligence has improved to such an extent that the prior level of expertise bought to bear is simply no longer sufficient.
2001-09-11 01:58:29 PM  
I found this website when searching google, . Allegedly this the group claiming resposibility for the terrorist acts. I used NeoTrace to get the domain information, and it traced it to a location near palestine. But the registrants are located some where near Chicago.
2001-09-11 01:58:33 PM  
What I'd like to know is what happened to the buildings around the WTC when they went down? I wonder how far the damage spread. The WTC was bloody huge, there's got to be property damage. Anyone heard anything on this by any chance?
2001-09-11 01:59:36 PM  
Word is out here in NJ - go to the local hospital and give blood. Jersey Shore hospital and Monouth Medical Center are getting triage patients in now from WTC.
2001-09-11 02:00:01 PM  
"our friend W has pissed off most of the WORLD latley with his i don't give a damn attitude. To everyone who is thankful that we have this ignorant isolationist pres in office -- consider this: his attitude may have directly incited this violence."

You farking people don't miss a beat. God, shuddap.
2001-09-11 02:00:21 PM  
that from local radio stations
2001-09-11 02:00:33 PM  
Oh, that's just brilliant, Apeboy...We refuse to sign a stupid greenpeace treaty that was voted down unanimously by the Senate (precluding our signing it...only the Senate can approve treaties.) and that even Euro nations won't touch...we refuse to call Israelis racists and walk out on that crap, and that makes him an isolationist. You're in La-La Land.

If the refineries are closed, they'll be running again tomorrow - DON'T (NOT EVER) PANIC
2001-09-11 02:01:57 PM  
It makes you wonder what other stunts these bastards are going to pull.
