2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

My Memories of 9/11, 10 years later

Posted September 10th, 2011 at 08:01 PM by Mario The World Champion

I know there are a lot of threads here @ PC where everybody is reflecting on where they where on 9/11, but I felt I should share where I was when the Towers fell here in my blog. I actually wrote about where I was on 9/11's 8th anniversary on my DeviantArt journal, so I'm just going to post it here with alterations to recognize the 10th anniversary.

The attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the the crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001 changed everything. The entire country froze in shock when the two planes crashed into the twin towers, smoke bellowing and the eventual collapse, images that will never leave our minds.

At that instant, everybody knew where they where when the towers fell on 9/11/2001. It was firmly implanted in our DNA and it will never leave us. I knew where I was.

I was attending a local college on that day. Yes, I actually attended a college for a short time. Biggest mistake of my life. Anyway, I was on my way to my next class when I approached one of the student lounges on campus. They had a TV on when I got there, I saw other students looking at pictures of the smoking from the crashes of the planes, most of them were in shock. I didn't know what was going on, since I first thought it was fake. So, I went to my next class and when I got there, people were going crazy, saying the twin towers were hit by two airplanes. At that time, all of us went to the lounge that I went past and sure enough, the towers did get attacked.

I watched along with everyone else at the carnage that was going on in New York City. It was then that the school officials canceled all classes for the day in the name of safety. I immediately called my Dad and told him to pick me up since they wanted everybody to get out as soon as possible. As I waited for him, I took out my cassette walkman and tuned into my usual radio station, only to hear live news coming from New York City.

When my Dad picked me up and headed back home, I turned on the radio to listen to more coverage of the attacks. I did not know that both towers had fell until I got back home. I turned on my TV and quickly went to the main channels, which were all showing footage of what was going on. And I just kept on watching everything for 6 days non-stop.

That is where I was on 9-11.
