    How Will You Be Observing 9/11?
    I don`t get it. Observing?

    If you meant remembering, I do it all the time for a split second when someone brings it up.

    If you meant doing during the day, the 11th is a sunday. I`ll be relaxing, watching some movies, playing some games, as usual, maybe doing some work.

    I will probably forget, unless I go online or watch tv that day so... To be honest I`m sick of it and why does the whole world (or more the Western Culture) have to remember/commemorate it?

    Euros = currency

    I do wonder if the Japanese have Hiroshima day. Y`know that event which killed more than 2000 people and the effects are still being felt today due radiation in the soil AND *breathe* was planned by the government? Or I dunno will Norway have an event 10 years from now? Will London lose it`s ball sack and have a 7/7 rememberence day? Or will Iraq and Afghanistan have a day to remember the 3-4 million deaths that was a "revenge" attempt spawned from 9/11? Doubt it. HonkeyLips pleeeeeeease.

    @ 8bithero: they do have what`s called Toro Nagashi, where they light lanterns as a memorial to all the souls that were lost and there are silent memorials and typically they have anti-war protests.

    I`ve been there, have you?

    Spoken by someone who doesn`t get Bonfire night if you think it`s about much more than fireworks.

    Draw real parallels or you`re not going to accomplish much. Example: Will you be naming 9/11 "Osama Day" any time soon, or do you think maybe you haven`t fully understood "Guy Fawkes Day"?

    Not true. A lot of cities organise a big firework display on bonfire night. The reason behind it might not mean much any more, but there are always a hell of a lot of fireworks around.

    @Ender: Nov 5. is celebrated in the UK, and not elsewhere in Europe. the UK =/= Europe.

    As I`m not American (despite other nationalities also dying), I shan`t be doing anything special to mark the day. Mind you I didn`t do anything special to mark 7/7 either, nor 11/03.

    Sigh... It`s unfortunate that it happened, and I feel for the folks that it affected, but ONE of the big reasons that it gets obsessed over every September is that it happened to the self-important people in NYC.

    Dear Europe,
    Why do you put the Month after the day?

    Short answer: Because it`s what people are used to.

    Long answer: A day is shorter than a month. A month is shorter than a year. Put them in order and you get either year/month/day or day/month/year.

    The USA puts it in a different order to everywhere else because...I`ve no idea. Why do you do it that way? I`ve been told it`s because you speak dates that way, e.g. "April 4th 1988", but that just raises the question of "which came first"? Besides, the most famous day in the USA isn`t spoken as "July 4th", is it? My guess is that the USA changing to month/day/year has no definite basis and has become purely a matter of custom, i.e. back to the short answer above.

    "Remember remember the fifth of november the gunpowder treason and plot. i see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot." for all of those in europe who dont get it, its our equivalent to that

    It might have been if many people paid any attention to the origins of bonfire night. I`d bet good money that if you stopped dozens of people in England and asked them what the gunpowder plot was, no more than 1 in 10 could tell you and most of them wouldn`t know any of the details. I don`t - Guy Fawkes and some other people whose names I don`t remember plotted to blow up Parliament for some reason. I`d guess there`s a religious reason somewhere, because there usually was.

    And it`s English, not European. If you asked the same question elsewhere in Europe, to get the right answer you`d have to happen to ask someone with an interest in rather obscure foreign history.

    You don`t and the whole world doesn`t remember or commemorate it. Therefore quit whining like most of the trollish Europeans do half the time on this site.

    Talk about the Ugly Americans. You make them look small fry.

    Cause European Americans are the unwanted immigrants from Europe. Americans are rebels in heart, and just to spite you they change everything including their last names. ;-)

    Hey mods why can`t you block these guys out, or are you getting money back?

    The mods here are pretty quick to delete shopping spam. It`ll be gone soon.

    And no, you can`t block them without requiring all posts to be read and passed by a moderator before being posted. They`re not all using the same name or IP address. You could try some sort of automated filtering, but it won`t work properly and IAB can`t be changed for some reason. Hence the persistence of the ridiculous "swearing" filter that changes people`s posts for no reason and falsely labels the results as their actual posts.

    For example, it`s impossible to mention or post any links to most sites about a certain town in England. It doesn`t have a rude name, but amazingly the filter here is a crap example from 20 years ago and uses the simplest possible substring substitution.

    "whats so important abotu sept 11? It happened 10 years ago. There are far bigger catastrophes in the world that need remembering."

    Maybe because our country is still trying to recover from the massive debt that catastrophe had. Maybe because it was an attack directly on U.S soil that killed thousands of INNOCENT people. Some were children. Maybe because we`re still "technically" at war and still have troops out there fighting resistances. Maybe that`s why we remember. Maybe thoseof us with loved ones in (or entering) the armed forces care. You don`t have to care but you should kindly respect those of us that do. My boyfriend is at Parris Island right now and when he officially becomes a U.S. Marine he could most likely get sent out there if he;s needed. So yes...I CARE and I WON`T get over it.

    FIrst, your boyfriend CHOSE to join them. He knew he would get sent anywhere in the world. No sympathy from me there. Especially to a war created by the US.

    Second, yes, 2-3k lives is a terrible lost and maybe could have been avoided, however, what about the atrocities that the US has inflicted on nations and people around the world. Dont see you mourning them or donating to those countries to help them remember.

    Typical american though. Something happens in your country and you think its a major catastrophe, and needs to be highlighted everywhere and everytime.

    tedgp you must be a frog with all that anti-us crap I have been to to Europe and the only place I have been that dog the us for "starting" the war is France everybody else knew it would be coming after we got hit. And also you Euro-trash Douche Bags have to remember the U.S never had to deal with an attack of the magnitude since WW2 and that was not even on home soil, wand it was against the Navy and Army, so for the most part the U.S was stuck in a modified isolationist mind set of it we do not see it it does not happen to us. Oh to your point what atrocity`s do you refer to? Hmm maybe you should look at the times we bailed Europe out of jams hmm two wars and economic melt down and when there are world issues who to you scream for first??? oh yeah AMERICA PLEASE SAVE US. So in closing PISS OFF

    I never said it was a major catastrophe that needed to be highlighted at every turn and believe me I am no "typical American". I just have a sense of compassion for people that are being forced to go out there and fight a WAR THAT IS STILL GOING ON.

    I mean my God..I don`t know what else to say to you since you clearly aren`t getting it. We are still at war..that`s why it`s such a "big deal". But i`m not going to argue this anymore since it`s clearly pointless and you`re enjoying playing the part of the "typical American hating European". Good day to you.
