It was a different time, the nuclear war fear dropped and everyone turned into a pussy for a while. Then BOOM safety blanket disappeared and everything got back to the way it was but instead of commies now it's muzzies
I made a joke about it during class, “how do you not see a building? If you can’t see a building you shouldn’t be flying.”
Then they found about a second one and I was all “what are the chances? Someone must really hate buildings.”
I was a junior when 9/11 happened. It was also the first day I ditched school cause everyone was so mesmerized by it. I remember going home and seeing a shit ton of police presence in NEW MEXICO as if the terrorists were gonna fly their planes into the desert. Either way, it was interesting. It brought people together and we actually thought it was terrorists. I remember people were also pissed and ready to kill any muslim or brown skinned middle eastern person. My friend whom was muslim was killed right after 9/11. Someone ran him off the road while he was on a motorcycle, and then they left the scene. Crazy shit.
I was 11. No not really funny. Impressive and confusing but ultimately I didn't really fully understand the gravity of it. Seeing an event being broadcast on everysingle station (rip cartoons for like at least whole day) was pretty fascinating. Seeing the expression and body language of my parents watching the news when I got home from school definitely left an impression. You also have to understand that there was no way back then of having seen anything like that in 'simulation'. Not even the biggest hollywood movies and cgi back then could render something that would look even remotely real or believable like those images.
Tldr it was crazy shit but after watching the footage loop a few times i just went back to playing pokemon and shit with my friends outside.
It's funny right away. When I heard they deleted the Spiderman beginning and trailer of him webbing between the twin towers I kek'd. Personally I still blame spiderman for pulling them over with his webs.
I'm kek because I remember thinking almost exactly the same thing. Also thought oh shit someone's gonna lose their job. Then the second plane hit and I just wondered if I might be able to use these events to take the rest of the day off work. I lived in Commiefornia at the time so the answer ended up being nyet.

>pause game, turn on news
>I get it building, you vape
no fucks given then, no fucks given now
I don't recall it originally being funny, I just didn't really care either way. I wanted to get back to shooting my best mate with my pencil catapult. It was just a thing that happened, you know. Things happen. Of course, now that you faggots memed the hell out of it, I laugh every time.
Watching those planes slam into those buildings over and over again was a level of violence I’ve never thought was possible before. This was before the internet era so it was so fucking shocking and horrifying
I was living in Hawaii. Got phone call from East coast at 3AM Hawaii time telling me turn on TV. All planes grounded, so island was probably the safest place in the couintry to be.
lol pussies, 9/11 was awesome in all its CGI butt blasting goodness
America got pancaked and still, til this day will they never admit that they got taken down a peg. America was at contaminous levels of world hatred at the time and watching it get put in its place was well deserved
on the plus side, we got The Hurt Locker out of it, which led to Jeremy Renner being Hawkeye. semper fi.
as soon as they started coming up with buzz words like 9/11 and "terror attack" I gave up. Weird thing was, I hung around people like a decade older than me and over a few years they ended up acting weird over it. I think they joined the air force or some shit...
I was like "you must remain true to the taliban warlord"
I think jokes about anything can be funny, for the most part. It's about the quality of the joke. So maybe a joke about it could be funny.
But, no, it wasn't funny in itself. It was heartbreaking and enraging. I was just 16 at the time and knew that everything would be different. Yes, life goes on. People live their lives. But the country and world would be a very different place without 9/11. Very likely for the better, and we missed that chance.
It was fucking sad. And you're an idiot for even having to ask that question. Dumbass.
Nothing change, Bush gibbered on as usual and kept choking on pretzels, america got another staged war and it was business as usual...except at the airports and I dont fly so IDGAF
It changed so much. Changes that can never be reversed. Not all of them for the better; for example, I used to travel across the border to Niagara Falls, Ontario all the time without a passport.. can't do that today.
Well, that's just about the most uninformed thing I've read today. Even if your life wasn't affected (and it was even if you're too ignorant to see it), I said the country and world changed. Your life is not the world.
Sure. Wasted lives, wasted money, increased cynicism, paranoia, and hatred, more easily manipulated populaces, etc.. I suspect society would have progressed in ways we haven't. The whole thing sucks.
...I never realised how much this attack hurt murricans, seriously on the scale of world events twin towers was a boo boo
by the way I live in a murrica friendly country, you know one of the ones that (not as much anymore) adores the shit out of your country of trailer park to shining trailer park, the emotions of 9/11, man, really get to me XD
Not sure what you're trying to get at by putting words in my mouth, but I've had a passport since about January of 2002. It was an inconvenience that came about because of 9/11.. which is what I stated, and stated nothing regarding any difficulties associated with getting a passport (there were none, by the way). Perhaps some day you'll hear a loud pop indicating that you've successfully removed your head from your ass and realize that putting words in peoples' mouths is idiotic. I don't expect that to happen anytime soon, though.
You're a cunt, and we lost a lot of freddom from the government overreach fueled by that attack. You know why your country doesn't adore ours much anymore? Because drones and shitty spying alliances and all kinds of nonsense that you're probably actually for, you fucking dirty aussie.
Sure thing. Huge international event with long-lasting, far-reaching, and material international consequences. But, for example, trade, economies, global security, diplomacy, and immigration definitely weren't affected. The sad thing is I don't think you're a troll. I think you really just don't know basic things.
My teacher walked out of the classroom and came back in a few minutes later crying. I didn't know what had actually happened until I got home and my mother was crying. I knew something pretty shitty went down but not the full extent. That's about all I remember. I was 13 or 14.
Now go wake your parents up and ask them if they think what happened on 9/11 was funny, so they can yell at you to go back to sleep so you won't be late for school tomorrow and MAYBE you still get to keep phone/internet privs so you can stay up late and """"""""""""""""troll"""""""""""""""" on internet boards.
Ooooo, I member.
No, it wasn't funny. Not even slightly.
Watching it all unfold live on TV with no idea when it was going to end and who was next.
Truly world-changing day. Nothing since has even come close.
