It`s a piece of air mail. Grow up and realise it wasn`t that big a deal. When I was a kid growing up in the 80s, we had the end of the troubles - that was a big deal. Your nation has never grown past feeling invulnerable and now you realise it isn`t you are all scared.
When you`ve actually know what a terrorist war is come back and I may let you cry on my shoulder, until then pull your socks up, hold your chin up and you`ll get through it all.

tigress, the actual photo itself is not the issue. It`s the reaction of some of the commenters. After 8 years we are over it. But, it still stings and there`s still a wound. Why put up with people throwing salt in it?

On IAB, pretty much only the first 5 comments actually have to do with the link. After that, it`s tangent city.

I think I know what Freekill is trying to say.

It`s ridiculous 8 years from now we are still so sensitive about the subject that people are getting upset at some guy working hte post office who probably was just trying to get things done quickly and was given a plane stamp and happened to stamp the twin towers. And honestly, imo, kinda funny in a, "Ooops, look at that" kinda way.

Ok, I can understand not finding it particularly funny. I can`t understand actually being upset at it. At least not when it wasn`t right after the incident nevermind 8 years later.

To me that kind of reaction is just as overreacting as saying we should change our emergency number to 000 because 911 happens to be the same numbers as the date. I could at least understand if it was right after the incident as emotions will be at their highest then, but having a fit now about 911 just is overreactionary.

dilldog, no one forgets about the 110,000 people killed by atomic bombs. Nobody forgets about the hundreds of thousands of people murdered everyday. Nobody forgets about Darfur. Can you not cry at a loved one`s funeral because someone else lost their whole family in a car accident?Should victims of Hurricane Katrina just quit whining because many more people died in the tsunami?

Never said it was, but you all talk and moan about the lives of 3,000 while conveniently forgetting the 110,000 people the US military killed. Indeed, one was to end a war and the other to terrorize a country, but what difference is that in terms of the value of life?

Double that in 3 months time.
Virtually limitless number of victims, both past, present, and future, due to genetic defects caused by radiation.

9/11:

Oops, apologies for the double post, I just skimmed through some of the other comments.

For the person complaining about the picture beside my name: there is a strong difference between an idol and a goal. Notice how it says "Vote" not "Become".

For the person who attempted to describe me: Well, you got the age right. Unfortunately, my age is rather blatantly posted under my name... You are right in saying that I am an atheist, but that is also posted on my profile. So, you read two things, reposted them, (correctly) and then guessed on the rest. Sorry, but you got 2/6. Thanks for playing, better luck next time.

Well, I just hopped on the computer to see if anyone had said anything since last night, and a few people obviously dislike what I have said.

Let me be clear about two things:
1. Everything I have posted on this board has been exclusively my opinion, I have never once tried to come off as preachy or bossy.
2. I am freaking terrible with words. I try my best to translate my thoughts into words and often I fail at doing it comprehensively. This is obviously one of those times.

I`ll try to sum up what I tried to say originally one more time, then I`ll be out of your hair. Feel free to talk about me behind my back all you want :-D.

It is my opinion that Americans (and maybe other nationalities as well) have been "seeing the Virgin Mary in Toast", like I said previously. I think the 9/11 attacks have stayed much more prominently in our subconscious than other, more recent problems in our world. (Notice: I am simply comparing, not attacking!) That is all I meant to come

sorry if im late but wow.. looking at monobrows post just makes my jaw drop---judging by the fact that hes a Canadian he clearly doesn`t understand what a tragedy and an attack against your country does to everyone..u say 3000 isnt a lot of people..monobrow imagine if all your friends (meaning your right hand) and family died..that wouldnt add up anywhere close to 3000, and i guarantee you life would not look so great. Before you open your mouth about an attack that doesnt have much of an effect on a Canadian, think about the hundreds of thousands of American lives impacted directly or indirectly by the deaths of those who worked in the towers, and not to mention the people of the world affected by the economic ramifications of having the wtc fall..also to fancy--why even put pictures up like this, maybe i should find a picture of your dead grandma and people will post "jokes" about her

Nope Baal, not at all. People were comparing it to car accidents, not atrocities that occur all over the world. As I write this, someone, somewhere is being murdered in a brutal fashion. You think that doesn`t sadden me? But, to say it is not more impactful when it happens in your own backyard would be a lie. That`s animal nature.

The US dropped the bombs on Japan as a weapons test, and a warning again the Soviets. I guess the history books got screwed up in Australia as well.
As a student of WW2 one knows that the Japanese went to war to obtain, through force, what they called the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere". This was a term that included China and large tracts of Asia along the Pacific. Japan had very little in the was of raw materials with which to goto war, and needed to launch a territorially expansion imperialist policy to gain the need raw materials.
By the time the US dropped the nukes all of these territories were no longer in the hands of the Japanese, therefore, among other reasons, their war-fighting capabilities were at an end.
There was an estimate that it would take 1 million soldiers lives to take Japan, such an invasion was completely unnecessary.
A simply Naval blockade would have starved the Japanese military machine to non-existence.

For everyone thinking that the Africans put themselves in the place they are now, I suggest you watch "Darwin`s Nightmare". It`s a documentary on how the outsourcing of jobs and megacorporation capitalism has forced most of the population into poverty, ruined their ecosystem, and given them no way to recover.

umm... trying to help africa should not involve more deaths

there are ways. there are always ways to solve this problem. When your idea (good job for trying to help anyways) starts with killing more and letting them die, that is not a good idea now is it. Common sense should tell you that the deaths your idea creates will need many more decades to balance out with the result.

And I seriously hate that stopping the African aid is the only option I can think of, but other than dumping people into America, how much aid did it ever need to get started?

The only other alternative, that would prevent them from having to die, would be to move all the healthy ones to another land, let the AIDS die (50 years ought to do it) bring the people back to Africa, with them having the knowledge of how to build a functional society, which we would have built during those 50 years.

I hate what I am about to say. So don`t bash me because of it.

Back to the Africa topic from earlier.

The problem with Africa is that we`re giving it food, money and all the stuff to help them be able to live. That creates a longer lifespan, long enough for them to get past teenagehood, have a few kids and die of some crappy disease like AIDS or Malaria, or whatever.

The best thing we could ever do is cut all the funding and sadly, let them die. they have the ability to produce food, just not in the quantities their current population can allow. Also, the main problem with AIDs, is that a LOT of them are misinformed and think of it as a "hot potato", and go and rape someone and then say "You`re it!". Stopping helping them will eventually lead to a catastrophic decrease in their population, but the HIV positive ratio will be down, the food per person ratio will improve and they will be more self-sufficient than they are currently capable.

9/11 was such a horrific event for America. However, there are certain events in American history that Americans have done that are heinous. I am not trying to start a flame war or anything, but here is a perfect example.

Ford came out with Ford Pinto ("September 11th, a coincidence) that had defective gas tanks which caused a few of those cars to explode. Through cost-benefit analysis Ford said it was cheaper to pay off the family members rather than recall all the cars Ford sold. What kind of drated up poo is that?

Also, there was also another occasion where America supplied 3rd world countries with medication without advising them about the consequences they would cause.

I love America and I am proud to be one. There are certain things, however, that I am ashamed of.

The US ended WW2 by dropping atomic bombs on 2 cities filled with innocent civilians instead of militarily significant targets.

Australia committed near-genocide of its aboriginal population because they were ignorant savages as judged by the standards of the people with the guns.

And every German civilian believed that their cause was just, right and fair and that they were only taking back territory and peoples which were historically theirs anyway.

No-one says its fair, but its always "Right" when you do it, and "Wrong" when the other side does. And God, according to each side, is on their side.

Sad though it is, c`est la vie.

Wait... so the people who are saying it`s the method rather than the number of people killed... do you feel the same about people who die in horrible fashions all around the world, or is it only when it`s in your backyard that you care?

Sabra and Shatilla massacres?

When the IDF surrounded a village and sent in a paramilitary group to massacre women and children in the village while blocking off escape routes, the international community did nothing.

Israel then elected the person responsible to be their leader, and the American President called him a "man of peace" and wondered idiotically why this man was not being negotiated with by the Arabs.

He is responsible for more deaths than Osama bin Laden, in a horrific incident worse on every metric than 9/11.

America decided to abstain on the vote on whether or not it should be considered genocide.

So lets not forget that shall we not, or is that not horrible enough to meet your standards?

"Wednesday, August 26, 2009 7:39:58 PM
It`s not the number of people killed it`s the manner in which they were killed. The people were murdered. They were executed. They were torn limb from limb. Hundreds leaped to their death because of shear terror. People watched in horror from the streets as victims burned to death. They ran in terror afraid of what would happen next. The smell of burning flesh filled New York City. Children were killed as they sat in their playpen. A janitor was mopping the floor when a giant plane came screaming towards him and ripped his head from his body...

You know, but it was only 3000 people."


I agree with supersmash...unless you were in NYC at the time you have absolutely no clue...freekill if you`re family or loved ones were on a plane or in a tower I don`t think "3,000 days" would be enough time to get over their senseless deaths.

To the obvious n00bs who are bewildered by the fact that "IAB people take things so seriously":

Does it bother you that a website exists where people will take issue with ignorant comments, and attempt to enlighten/educate the ignorant commenter?

If it does, then perhaps this is not the place for you. I would suggest 4chan, that way you can say all the ignorant, uneducated sh*t you want and no one will care, or if they DO care, they won`t call you on it since you can be "anonymous".

Yes that`s what I`d do. Call me stupid, but I think it would work a lot better then just pumping money into Africa when the leaders don`t give a crap about the people.

Jesus, for people on a website called "i-am-bored.com" you people take things pretty damn seriously. I am not so unbelievably ignorant to think a stunt like that would work! I have completely different views on Africa that have nothing to do with this topic, so I`ll keep them to my self.

For the record, I didn`t just "throw that number out there" that number is used countlessly by money-grubbing Christian "charities". It is a number that is used as in impact statement, not an economic figure. I can`t remember the exact economists that came up with it, but you could google it if you`re interested. I obviously should have put it in quotes or something. Again, I apologize if this was a misunderstanding.

That is not remotely what I am saying, and I offended that you think so. What I am saying (or trying to in this case) is that we have large scale problems right now. 9/11 was terrible, many people were affected, I agree, it was murder. (I fortunately, was not one of them, so maybe I am too ignorant to speak on this topic.) My point is, people are wasting too much time and resources complaining about things that are said and done.

When I said "get over it" I don`t mean "forgive and forget" I mean "move one and do productive things with your life". Otherwise terrorism will have worked. I just want people to stop seeing the Virgin Mary in toast. Sorry for those who I have offending, I hope it was misunderstanding.

The problem with Africa is the leaders of Africa. They steal resources we send there and horde everything. They`re military dictators interested in power rather than helping the people. We could send a billion dollars a day and it wouldn`t help as long as the power structure stays the way it is.

Okay, well, only the one. Sorry Canada.

It`s like if a loved one died 8 years ago. It`s not being overly sensitive to get offended when people say, "Get over it."

It`s not like it affects you everyday and you hardly think about it. But, the fact that it happened a while ago doesn`t give others the right to belittle the situation.

You can`t just dump some money on Africa and hope poverty disappears. We`ve been sending money over there for years. What has to happen is that African countries need to become self-sufficient, not dependent on foreign aid. They need to improve agricultural productivity and education and have access to micro loans. Solving poverty isn`t that easy.

"You`re right, I guess all the people who had the ones they loved die should just "get over it"."

Thank you for finally understanding! as I said before, better to look into the future, instead of worrying about the past. I have in fact lost family members who were close to me, and I `got over it`

"World poverty could be cured if Canada, the US and the EU gave up .1% of their GDP."

God you are terrible in economics arent you?

It`s going to take a pooload more than that. The US, Canda, EU, Un have donated Hundreds of Billions of Dollars to Africa.

Not to mention that when you increase the amount of people who get food, the prices of food go up. So congrats you solved Africa, how about El Salvador? How about the Unemployed American who can barely afford bread? You just threw that number out there and hoped you`d be right didn`t you?

I would say it has more to do with the age group and the lack of knowledge, life experience, and books that they should have read.

"48000 people is still only about the size of a medium sized city"

Oh only a medium sized city, okay, that`s not that bad.

Not to mention the 8 million people who live in New York City who were most likely affected.


"9/11 was nearly 3000 days ago. With all due respect, it`s time to stop being so damn touchy and get over it."

You`re right, I guess all the people who had the ones they loved die should just "get over it".

@Freekill...

Many (actually thousands of) organizations world-wide is trying to solve the issue with african hunger/disease/malnutrition/etc. So seriously... don`t be a little smartass to treat 9/11 or any mass-murder as a similar case with the large number of issues that exists in Africa. You do not know Africa.

Wow, Monobrow is a tard.

Just an FYI, the reason people don`t talk about the holocaust much anymore, is probably because they`re very old, or dead. Also, after finding all the concentration camps, there was also the whole realization that everybody lost a lot of people in the war.

Don`t compare things that can`t be compared. Sure they were both murder based on hate, but the message behind it is the lesson you should learn. The number of people who have to die isn`t what is relevant, it`s how much that message has the ability to change your life.

Well, my first post didn`t... post, so I`ll try again.

I resent 9/11 not because of the lives lost (~3000) but because of the way certain people took advantage of the immediate hysteria of losing those lives. (Read: Second Gulf War.)

More children die every day in Africa due to malaria alone than the total number of American lives lost on Sept 11/01. If someone created a stamp commerating the mosquito, would you cry about it? (Okay, bad example....) World poverty could be cured if Canada, the US and the EU gave up .1% of their GDP. And yet, we`re sitting around, b*tching because a post-worker made a plane look like it`s near some towers.

9/11 was nearly 3000 days ago. With all due respect, it`s time to stop being so damn touchy and get over it.

"I did not want to waste all my time describing in detail what happened in the camps"

Or you have no idea what your talking about and have absolutely no idea of what happened in the camps, and that`s why you can`t go into detail. I`m sure time isn`t the real issue for you, because somehow I don`t see you having an action-packed life that is so busy you can`t spare a minute and explain.

I`m not going to waste my time trying to make you understand DEATH=BAD, because you probably already understand it and are just posting comments like "get over it.", to get attention.

In this case, I think the best way to get you to go away and shut up would be to ignore you. Don`t feed the troll type thing.

It`s not the number of people killed it`s the manner in which they were killed. The people were murdered. They were executed. They were torn limb from limb. Hundreds leaped to their death because of shear terror. People watched in horror from the streets as victims burned to death. They ran in terror afraid of what would happen next. The smell of burning flesh filled New York City. Children were killed as they sat in their playpen. A janitor was mopping the floor when a giant plane came screaming towards him and ripped his head from his body...

You know, but it was only 3000 people.

"3000 people IS NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE!!!"

Okay, take that 3000 people.
Now, think about every person those 3000 people, know, love, and cared about.
Lets say every one of those 3000 people had 10 close friends, and 6 close family members.
Now multiply that 3000 by that 16.

That`s 48000 people, more or less. 3000 people may have died, but that`s only a fraction of the people who were truly affected.
MonoBrow, just quit now before you make yourself look like a bigger ass.

Monobrow, people are people, regardless of the numbers. I look upon 9/11 with the same sadness that I do upon the holocaust. Even when it comes to Russia in WW2, when 23 million of my people were killed, including my 2 great-grandfathers, while my grandma was starved and my great-grandma raped.

Human life has value, no matter the quantity.

Plus, he probably pretends things don`t bother him because he thinks being affected by something makes him less macho. It`s a sign of being insecure in his masculinity.

He`ll grow up one day.

Monobrow, before you say, "You don`t even know me", I already know all I need to know...

Oh yeah, then he`ll describe a situation in which he was affected.

Im not enlightened by him at all... If I was to be enlightened by a comment so far, it would have been lionhart`s. I still think people make way too big of a deal about 9/11. If having a logical mind, and thinking 3000 people isn`t a big of a deal, means being immature, than I guess I am immature. Also Norts` comment was totally uncalled for, at least go into some detail of why you hate me, like the other people did.

1st of all, I said `gassing of the Jews and stuff` I did not want to waste all my time describing in detail what happened in the camps, `and stuff` was the other stuff that happened... more importantly, I, in fact, do have the maturity to comprehend death at a large scale... and you basically proved my point, thank you. 3000 people IS NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE!!! In fact all of you who still think 9/11 is such a big deal are not mature. The flu kills one hundred times more people annually than that this one event in time that we are flaming about :o (sorry for your loss as well, may he R.I.P)

@ Monobrow: I took a class on WWII in college many years ago. Attendance was MANDATORY for every class... Except the week that Professor Whitaker screened the official U.S. films of the liberation of the concentration camps. I sat through that week of films, and was quite shaken by what I saw.

There is a reason that those films have never been shown publicly, although they ARE available if someone REALLY wants to see them.

Your cavalier attitude towards both the Holocaust (which you referred as "the gassing of the Jews" there was a LOT more to it than that bud. you have NO idea), and the 9/11 attacks indicate that you just don`t have the maturity it takes to understand death/murder on a large scale.

No one "whines more about 9/11 than the Holocaust"

And as for your statement that a "measly 3000 people died in the 9/11 attacks" FU*K YOU.

One of those "measly 3000 people" was a man named Leonard Castrianno.

He was my friend.

Sure, time heals all wounds. But it`s also true that events you lived through are harder to heal; there aren`t many WW2 survivors left (relatively) but we all lived through 911.

Lived through? Yes. There are only ever 1 or 2 events that happen in your life, where you will remember where you were, how you felt. Its the only time in my adult life I can remember crying, even thinking about it now almost makes me. As we watched, live, people jumping out of windows to their death, we all shared the tragedy, but more, it made us ask: would I be brave enough to jump, knowing that I was dead anyway, or would I pathetically hang in, hoping for a miracle? Would I claw someone out the way to get to the stairs? Who would I ring in the last moments of my life? Or would I lose it and sob in a corner till the end?

The tragedy is not in the 3,000 who died, but in how it made every person watching, worldwide, question themselves. In that, we were all victims of 911.

This mere incident was the most tragic non-natural disaster event. Not to mention it had several economic implications world wide.

9/11 was this decade.
Holocaust was not even this century (ok its early 2000s i cheated a bit on that one).

Not to mention that ww2 is played out. There are a pooload of movies on that compared to 9/11.
