Excuse my little knowledge of all things middle east. Ask me something about Norway, I don't get tripped up on those big, burly guys! How come it's OK for low battery jokes? Do you guys hate Matt Groening for drawing Apu? Has it been proven he isn't Muslim? OK then.

It's ok not to know. What's not ok is to refuse to learn.

No hate on Apu.

I will never forget that day. My friends and I were on a 6 ballpark trip. We were in chicago that morning getting ready to head to Milwaukee for a brewers game.
Crazy part was our trip earlier in the year was to do an east coast trip to see the red sox and Yankees. Thank god we couldn't afford the tickets and hotels on the east coast. Who knows where we would have been.
Two of my friends enlisted when we returned. And one of my friends is still serving.

GOD BLESS THE USA !!!!

Chill, man- you're going to break your plastic Chinese made heart.

Just want you to hate the proper ethnic group. The only thing the Hindus have done is taken over Dell tech support.

I had a half day that day, so I didn't have to go to my home school that day, I just had to go to OTC. I watched it on tv at my house but I really didn't realize the significance of what just happened. We drove all the way to OTC and they told us to go home that school was cancelled.

I will never forget that morning.

I was at work at a local nuclear power facility, when the word went out. We watched the second tower plane and Pentagon from the emergency operations facility.

And then shit got tense.

Nuclear Security were fully suited up, locked, and loaded. We had Selfridge ATC on the radio net and heard occasional reports from F-16s flying CAP over the lake. There's a Monroe private pilot who will never be the same again. The ATC center told him to land now - he figured that he could stretch it back home instead of putting down on South Bass. He found out different. Really different.

I was at work listening to this all happen on the radio.

By the time I got home my wife was sick of seeing it so I didn't even get to see the recap.


I did not see video until about a week later.

I was at work. The entire office staff watched the second plane hit and then the concern about other planes attacking Washington. I remember it clearly but don't remember any significant reaction other than something terrible was happening. My boss was somewhere out east on a business trip and I remember someone calling him. He rented a car to drive home. Ever since, when I have traveled, I have hated traveling overseas knowing I would be stranded if this ever happened again.

I hate those fuckers who changed our lives forever and were such cowards as to kill innocent people. God bless those who died that day and God bless those who did so much to try to save the victims.
