    This is what I'm talking about. This is not rational.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I was disturbed afterward, when I had time to think about it more. I have a powerful imagination. I thought of what it must have been like to make a decision like jumping out of a skyscraper window or burning to death. And I thought of other things too, that are even worse.

    I have to fly tomorrow. Yes I'm a little superstitious. I'm bringing an ample supply of Ativan.

    That's just plain stupid.

    If Falcarius remembers correctly he had just got let out of mathematics class early when the first tower came down, as it was the first mathematics class of the year, by the time the second one came down he was watching it on the news at home.

    It did not really sink in until he had to stand outside in the rain with around seven hundred annoying people, the next day, for a 'moment of silence'.

    Every Sept 11 they come out like a mantra, "Never Forget", is there any of us who are likely to forget? Isn't it constantly on the news and in the general talk? Who is likely to forget?

    I agree, and I think this relates to a point I was making earlier. Making such a big deal out of a day like today only serves to stir up emotions. I see no useful purpose, unless you're goal is to stir up emotions. And why would anyone want to do that?

    Yeah, it's really annoying. I don't want to have to deal with the cry-police on this day for the rest of my life.
    No offense.

    I know that this probably not the best thread or time to post this but I just want to prove that this can happen.

    Those people will be stupid anyway. The stupid will always be with us. I am talking about people who pay basic attention to current affairs and the world in which they live. How many of these people are likely to forget?
