I prefer when it lands on the weekend

Meh. I hate this fucking day. I’m still sore, but I’ve said all I want to say about it. But I don’t like to let it pass without acknowledgement, either. So, consider this acknowledgement.

Talk about whatever you like in the comments.

A bad day here, too. I just wish I felt like we had learned more from it…

I blame the day on the solar flare.

I’ve been holding my breath for you guys all day. If ever there was a risk of something going down on 9/11, it’s now.

Don’t want to jinx it, but…

Today’s my daughters birthday. She’s thirteen.

You all must think I’m daft. I forgot what day this was until Stoaty’s comment. I’ve been out of town, ignoring television and newspapers. Read this morning about the solar storm on a science blog—hence my flippant remark.

Surly Ermine—I am delighted to learn that something magnificently wonderful and amazing happened on this day, thirteen years ago. What a day that must have been for you.

Bad day. Very bad day. I am so angry that so many people have said that they just want to forget. NEVER forget, never forgive, never submit.

Wow, Surly. Poor kid.

My mother used to say how much it sucked to be born on Christmas day, but your daughter has that beat. Wish her happy birthday from all your imaginary internet friends.

Ha, one of the ladies at our church has a birthday to-day as well. Stupid savages, always mussing with people’s birthdays.

Heh. I would have thought that we would have a weasel take on the fappening by now, preferably with cool weasel parody art. LOL 😉

Yeah the day sucks, especially since we’re forced to JUST GO ABOUT OUR BUSINESS AS IF IT’S ANY OTHER DAY.

It should be a solemn holiday.

It is a holiday, Nina. By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress has designated September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day.” Every year the President issues a proclamation. Flags are to be flown at half-staff all day. I get an email reminder for all half-staffing orders, but I didn’t see until it was too late.

My friend Abdul, a Canadian living in the U.S., is about as Muslim as a Maori. He likes a good party, but not on his birthday anymore. That’s today.

Some have forgotten, some want everyone else to forget. That fool Kerry is a perfect example, warning us to avoid “war fever” regarding ISIL/ISIS/IS.

THEY have not forgotten and they will strike us again. I just hope that the next time kindles a fire that knocks down the appeasers for many years.

As Instapundit says – ” God bless America. We need it.”

Oh, I know it’s technically a “holiday,” but who has it off? I sure don’t, and teachers get just about every holiday there is.

At work today, staff was talking about it, but our students were babies when it happened, and it’s almost as far removed from them as WWII is to me. It’s just not real to them, I guess.

It is to me. Always remember. Never forget.

Thanks for the b-day wishes. She is our first child so we were already scared as hell. My wife was in labor so we didn’t know anything until a nurse turned on the TV just as the second plane hit.

In another generation, Nina, we will have American history scholars who specialize in the Middle Eastern wars. I know teachers have rather strict teaching plans, but if I were a school teacher, I’d create a one-day lesson plan that would provide an age-appropriate overview of what happened on September 11, 2001. You can always start with a discussion on why we fly the flag at half-staff on certain days. The next half-staffing day is Dec.7, Pearl Harbor Day.

Ok, I give up. I stared at that picture for 20 minutes, and I can’t get the 3D image thingy to happen for me. What is it, a pony or something?

I think she just meant it to be like a TV channel that’s off the air.

Oh man, Drew! Quasi is right — it’s just static. I can never get those 3D image thingies to work for me anyhow.

It *does* look a bit like a color blindness test, though :+)

I celebrated by watching a clip.

Never Forget Again.

Obama and his Klingon bride commemorated the day by filling backpacks with a group called KaBoom. And noone bats an eye. (also, Mooch was wearing a $750 shirt on backwards)

The ass enjoys flipping us off.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
