R.I.P. RUN TO THE HILLS
TheLopper: Wait, THE Bruce Dickinson?/I'm wearing gold plated diapers that day.
Lsherm: Well, at least they can say they did something. Everyone criticized the lack of panic the last time around.I wonder if the mockers will eat their words should something happen this week.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: But... but... WHAT COLOR IS IT?
Need a Dispenser Here: Flight 666 is in trouble
ecmoRandomNumbers: Remember the good ol' days when those who were wagging the dog were at least somewhat sincere in trying to conceal it?
Somacandra: ecmoRandomNumbers: Remember the good ol' days when those who were wagging the dog were at least somewhat sincere in trying to conceal it?You mean before the Clinton impeachment bombings in October 1998?That's been a few years.
naughtyrev: Out of boredom, I looked at Wikipedia's famous events by day to see what else they could be potentially marking. I found one of the most unexpected passages ever: "Russian President Boris Yeltsin fires his Prime Minister, Sergei Stepashin, and for the fourth time fires his entire cabinet. On the same day, Chris Jericho makes his WWF debut by interrupting The Rock with a millennium clock."
Bith Set Me Up: Also the 14th anniversary of Brion James' death.[theactionelite.com image 400x300]
Just_a_Bear: They left out the 68th anniversary of bombing Hiroshima
WhiskeyBoy: I said it in the last thread, I'll say it again:I work in a US Embassy so I'm getting a kick...Al Qaeda loves to make threats at the end of Ramadan. It happens every year. It happened in Iraq while I was there, and nothing ever happened. This year, there was just a lot more "chatter" (you can read that as the basement dwellers of the terrorist world, taking to the forums to rile up Western hatred). While I certainly don't want anything bad to happen, I also don't think anything will.You know what else isn't going to happen? This non-event being used to leverage more "security in place of freedom" on American citizens. I think it's pretty obvious Americans are fed up the post-9/11 security apparatus, and would not take well to more of that. And why would the powers that be do that anyway? What gain do they stand to make? It's certainly not financial, and in my experience in politics, that's the only reason any politician does anything.
