This is complete non-sense, phones were being used to play Snake and the smartest phone was a nokia 3300. Friendster wasn't started until 2002, and myspace hadn't started until 03'. There were no social media sites yet to the extent of today. Unless you want to count vnboard.ign and the msn gaming zone, or all the fringe niche forums.

I don't think America got their news from news sites in 2001. At least not the majority. 42% of the U.S. was connected to the web at that time. But i bet 20% of that number or more were kids who were primarily using the dial-up/dsl for AIM chats. Yahoo had news, as did some other "news-sites", but the primary customization of the websites back then was based on interests more so then a bombardment of news. Google had just started a year or so before, other search engines like hotbot.com were available to search. People were more interested in searching their interests then being targeted for their interests.

9/11 did more damage that day then the news networks reporting on them for the simple fact it was the first attack on American soil in a major city with mass casualties. Forget the fact that in 1993 a plane hit the WTC as well*, or the Oklahoma city bombings. 9/11 played out like a coordinated attack, one tower, two towers, the pentagon, flight 93. The reporting that day had nothing to do with an agenda, they were just reporting and the agenda wrote itself. America seemed like it was under attack, and it shook the core belief that "war doesn't happen on our soil" or "we're Americans, the strongeest nation in the world".

WW1, WW2, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Korean War... were all fought away from home.

The news and the administration used this fear to enact laws like the patriot act, TSA, increased security, what some would call draconian Orwellian tactics. And as our society became more connected we became more bombarded with the atrocities that were happening everywhere. I think it just clued us in more and caused us to retreat into ourselves.

*edit: It was a car bomb, my mistake

In 1993, the WTC was attacked by a bomb in the parking garage, not a plane. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993_World_Trade_Center_bombing

Weird I've always thought it was a small Cessna! I must be confusing it with something, thanks for the correction

A little weird. But ASMR hadn't really taken off yet back then.

True!

Corona, CA. Close-ish to LA. I live there and work in LA, that was a hell of a day.

This isn’t from Corona, it’s from the Sepulveda pass on the 405, directly in LA! It was definitely gnarly

just the right amount of slide whistle sound fx

Hoping this is sarcasm lol unless you think there are 100 seconds in a minute

Really speaks to the dark side of internet culture, especially cyber bullying. What happens when you remove the veil of anonymity? Embarrassment, apparently.

How is this politics? It's literally just a guy being a dick who happens to be a councilman

Oh definitely - I thought that too

He actually was though. Not sure where the video is, but he took Star Trek super seriously the first season. He talks about how he would get angry, a lot like his father, and yell at them. It wasn't until he started relaxing that he was able to enjoy himself. I'll see if I can find the video.

He talks about it here, but here are older videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulUDhd-e6AE

Reminds me of a joke I heard the other day:

A couple are out to dinner at a restaurant on their fourth date. The guy looks overtop of the menu, locking eyes with his date, and blushes. She blushes and smiles, and he begins, "I don't know how to say this..." at the words, her eyes widen, expectantly, heart fluttering, as he continues "war-CHEST-er-shy-er?"

You missed the part where she goes "Just say it!!"

It's not, great movie though. Salve (pronounced Saw-way) is hello, the rule holds up in most of latin words I believe.

Of course CBS has to make it a point to advertise on the bottum

Yeah, i can eat the Hot, but it's still too much of an experience. I like medium on a bun. It's edible. I'll have to try those Mario fries though, what are they exactly?

Alternately you could just use an ipad with the london times installed.

Gives me goosebumps everytime

My plan worked... I didn't feel like googling to find the missile size pic, but I knew if I posted that it was tiny someone would deliver. Thank you. Although there is another pic out there that makes it look bigger

Someone who has a schtyle that is unblockable, obviously
