>was in 5th grade. >everyone starts panicking >parents all picking up kids >chaotic >as i leave with my mom, we walk past the office; everyone's crying. >sit there with my bro, sis, dad, mom, watching tv not knowing wtf is going on >never go outside for the next few weeks >that year was the last july 4th year
>>568081187 First grade. Teacher turned on the tv after the first was hour but before the second one was. I think school was let out early and my parents were pissed the teacher did that, saying with kids that young (~6) it should be up to the parents to show their children in a way they'd understand instead of showing them horrific images they wouldn't get.
Stop following the crowd. If you didn't know anyone in the towers that died, then you shouldn't give a shit. People die all the time. The only reason you guys give a fuck about it is due to the bullshit pumped into your brain via the media.
>>568081187 There are far more current events that really need the attention of faggots like yourself. But hey if getting all fuked up over a decade old problem then you go right ahead Mr current affairs.
Fuk well never stop problems of the future if we are still arguing about hte problems of the past.
>>568081187 me and my dad were landscaping a house down the street when my step mom came running up to us yelling about how we just got bombed we walked to our house and watched for a couple of minutes and then my dad was like "well, lets get back to work" i thought it was the work of terrorists for ten years and then i actually did some research and have come to the conclusion that it was an inside job
>>568081187 >be me >9 >living in NY >dad works at WTC >mom is in Buffalo for a work thing >goto school 3 miles away from Downtown Manhattan >reading in class >hear loud boom >minutes later principal gets on PA >tells us parents are coming to get us >everyone leaves but me >they can't get a hold of my mom or dad >second boom, i'm really scared now >lots of sirens >my mom finally calls the school >shes freaking out >dad wont answer cell
>>568083267 all this righteous bullshit is fake. like you said hunger kills more people. its just that this was 3000 people in one morning if peanut allergies would kill all its yearly victims on one day we would probablybe still be engaged in the great Legume wars
>be me in 9th grade >sitting in keyboard class >teacher gets email from staff to read CNN.com news >she tells the class there was an attack in new york and that the website wasn't loading (due to too much traffic) >we carry on like we don't give a shit because it's not us getting quran'd >redneck repub parents start driving up to the school in pickup trucks/suvs to frantically take them home to try to protect them from the towel heads. >Me going home and fapping to the tears of butthurt merkins and then meeting my Quake3 clan online for instagib rail practice.
I was in 1st grade, all I remember thinking was why is this such a big deal? I was legitimately confused. I probably would have appreciated it more if my teachers and parents had spent more time emphasizing that people crashed planes full of people just into huge buildings full of people, and less time on nationalist shit about people hating our freedom.
>>568081187 >16 years old I was smoking hash and weed in my bedroom with some chums and watching tom green. >Went to get some snacks and saw that shit on the news. >Watched news for the rest of the day baked out my brains, felt bad for the people dying, but vicariously excited too.
I thought it was the happening. Instead it was just some ragheads getting lucky cos the NSA were too lame.
was already watching cnn first plane hits and they cut to coverage watch 2nd plane hit live start to spontaneously laugh and giggle "its about time" call older brother, tell him we both laugh on phone, shake heads yep murikah
>Around 11pm in Australia >I'm 11 yrs old >Come out to get a drink and see my mother still up watching tv >Think it's a movie >Ask mum what it is >"Something terrible is happening in New York" >Oh...okay. Good night.
>>568084019 you dumbass you just dont fucking know. The soviet union was dead for 10 years. Things were cheap, life was easy, We were untouchable. The idea that anyone could match us for years was unthinkable then you turn on the fucking news and fucking nyc is crumbling. No one cares about some faggot ass bankers who got killed we care because our supremacy was under attack.
>>568081187 >Come home from school >Dad is standing up watching tv >Asks what's up >"Niggers, they can't fly planes" >Wonder if any tall buildings in this country >Wonder if niggers are allowed to pilot planes here >Laugh and asks what's for dinner >"Not funny, son"
I was in 1st grade when it happened, but I don't remember ever hearing about it that day. I didn't even know about it until a classmate explained it to me in 5th grade I think. I know that I moved sometime that year and I'm not sure if I was even enrolled in my new school yet. Honestly, I was probably just playing some N64 and my parents never told me about it because they figured I was too young.
>>568082690 my 1st glade class had us sit in a circle and we were asked what we thought about what happened. I guess the other kids were just better at bullshitting even then, because no one explained shit. I just straight up said I didn't understand what happened. teacher didn't really respond, moved on to the next kid. apparently she wrote a concerned letter to my mom
>didn't want to go to school >8th grade >pretend to be sick >confirmed for not going to school >success >turn on TV >flip to HBO >Full Metal Jacket is on >watch the movie >get tripped out by ending sequence where sniper is murdering the squad >grinding music >hear dad yell "holy shit a plane just hit the WTC" >I think its a small plane, not a big deal >movie ends >mindfucked >dad comes into room and changes channel to CNN >towers are smoking >spend day watching 9/11
>>568081187 >6th grade >had my backpack on read2go >noticed i had 15 mins to spare >flipped on tele lookin to watch some toonz before i leave >only news stations >i'm looking at smoke, debris, fire, screaming >watch the second tower fall >again smoke, debris, fire, LOTS more screaming >get fucking pissed that my cartoons aren't on and walk to school >get to class teachers faces red and watery trying to hold back tears >mr weiss rolls in tv moniter >class watches tv rest of day >fuckyeahnoschool.jpeg didn't realize what really happened till i got home and my parents explained it
fucked up day. devastated the charmed lives we were all used to. i'm sure /b/ will make fun of it like they always do but maybe take time out of your day for a moment of silence.
>11th September 2001 >finished work for the day, only did half days on Tuesdays. >also my 21st birthday >went to the pub, was enjoying a few cold pints of beer >a couple of games of pool >could this day get any better? >suddenly a wild bar maid appears >"quick, let me put the TV on, somethings happening in America" >TV on >image of twin towers, one with big hole in side and smoke pouring out >mydaygotevenbetter.jpg >watch 2nd plane plough into other tower >watch people practicing Olympic diving off top of towers >watch town towers deconstruct themselves >this is amazing >who is responsible for this wonderful display? >spend afternoon and evening drinking more beer and speculating who made this happen.
>>568084001 >principal tells police officer what happened >they have to take me to the police station while they wait for my mom to get here >im waiting at station >its fucking crazy, so many people everywhere some crying >its all over the t.v >I knew what my dads building looked like cause I could see it from my house >its on fire on the t.v >it falls down >I cry >Mom gets there >Dad is missing >Days go by >weeks >my Dad's brother is at ground zero >digging through rubble >months go by >Uncle Todd gets really sick >years go by >i'm 18 >join army >getting ready to go to Afghanistan >rupture colon in basic training >major surgery >I get DQ'd
>>568085287 yeah, I think the thing that pisses me off especially in retrospect is that they were basically socially coercing us into giving a shit. if you didn't understand it, didn't react as strongly to it, or thought other things were a bigger deal, that pretty much made you an instant america-hater or psycopath
i was in elementary school. Mrs. Roth was checking her computer and she looked upset and made a phone call to our office. Then the announcement came over the loudspeaker and explained the situation in layman's terms. Mrs. Roth then put on this horrendous fake smile and escorted us all to the auditorium. The staff spoke to us and then sent us all home early. I was watching the recap on TV while my mother was losing her shit trying to get in touch with my step father who was supposed to be at a meeting there. Turns out he got stuck in traffic on the way in and thats when the first tower got hit. He turned around and went home. I flew later in december to visit my bio dad and i remember how insane TSA was and airports/planes terrified me for life. I also watched final destination around that time too.
>>568085117 yeah thats kind of the point man. Before 9/11 things were pretty fucking great here. obviously it was more than just a terrorist attack that fucked us but that pretty much symbolized everything going to absolute shit
>>568085425 You're supposed to take it easy with the ass-pounding, soldier. You have to work up to the big cocks. I lost too many men to ruptured colons because they instantly jumped on the big boys. Smh.
>>568085604 Exactly. That is one reason why so many Americans have that bullshit victim hood mentality. Always looking for a reason to be upset.
I have never felt sad about 9/11 or given a shit about honoring the people who died. And everyone I know looks at me weird on this day of the year when I say that I don't care. They wouldn't care either if they hadn't been coaxed or coerced into giving a shit.
3rd Grade, Announcements start going off about a plane hitting WTC, my first thought is one of the small planes hitting a random building, who cares. Kids start getting picked up by the fuckton, start wondering how bad could this shit possibly be. never get picked up, just me and 4 other kids out of a class of 30~. While walking home I'm looking up at this long ass cloud stretching across the sky. Couldn't help but feel weird about it. I get to the apartment building. Peoples doors are wide open, including mine, which isn't a thing in new york, walk into apartment, TV showing video feed of smoke and ash, still have no clue what's going on. Start hearing peoples voices from the rooftop door, I head on up and find my older brother and neighbors staring off into Manhattan (lived in queens) at this cloud of dust. First thing I thought was "the fucking twin towers?" they were my favorite buildings to stare at as a kid. Realized a shitload of people got Allah akbared, people talking about being at war. Shit was crazy for a few days.
They were showing Dragon Ball Z when the news pop up to show the second plane crash, to tell the truth i was more piss off about cutting Dragon Ball Z than a terrorist attack in USA, i was like nine years old.
>>568085728 so maybe next time they gather chilgren in one of their little circle, they can ask them how they feel about the "freedom fighters" USA sends around the world to murder and disrupt the lives of millions in the name of the red white and blue. GTFO with this bullshit, children ought to stay children and do childish stuff , and not be concerned with the fucked up world we are living in that young age
>>568081187 >be year 6 >be Australian >get up to watch my Cheez TV pretty sure that it was meant to be Pokemon, but people have said it was supposed to be Card Captors >Turn on TV >every channel is news >get mad >go to school >argue with bossy cunt girl about how it doesn't matter even though I don't know what happened >some people mad at me >some people on my side >nobody old enough to get it >grow up not giving a shit about it because Australian >still don't give two fucks >get over it amerifags
>>568088714 >steel doesnt need to melt to have its construcional quality be reduced by a critical amount >also the substance of the supportive main pylons had been critically damaged by a fucking airplane flying right through them >having steel glowing red at 1030C with about 4000 tons of concrete on top of it will cause it to give way, 100%
Literally got into a few fights at school that day because of 9/11. During afternoon homeroom every student in the class was asked to describe their feelings about the event.
When it got to my turn I tried to think of the positive things that could come from the event. The chance to reconnect with some people you might have been putting off for some silly reason. The chance to learn about the people who were actually there in the shit trying to help victims and keep things organized. The chance to see that this whole thing shouldn't just be about trying to get some revenge on some then unkown asshole trying to instill fear on a country and only managing to bring them closer together.
The only thing my classmates managed to get from my little speech was "9/11 was a good thing for us" however, because you know teenagers don't like to really think about things and just want the tl;dr. Word spread through the school, and white knights started showing up in my classes wanting to pick a bone.
>Be me, swefag >9/11 >Ppl crying n shit >I dont care, fuck Amerifag >Dunt mess with sandniggers stupid fucks >Class have silent minute >Bored as fuck >10 seconds in start making fartsounds >Told i was psychopath >Go home, watch spongebob. >Fuck Amerifag, Spngebob sang friendship song >9/11 would watch again
I was working out when a friend phoned me and told me to switch the tv on.
I was shoked, exited and arroused. I jerked off for a while while I saw the towers fall again and again. First live, then many repeats. Then my mon came home. Nearly cried as I filled her in on it all.
Always hated Americunts, but seeing people die on live tv was just fucked. Now we see people die the whole time, back in 2001 it wasn't so common.
Now I celebrate 9/11 with seeing and posting 'funny' pictures. And ofc by opening the windows, gotta let those planes fly though.
>>568081187 I didn't see the video of it until I started watching youtube in 2008. So it didn't really impact me at all, we just got out of school early that day.
The first time I saw pictures of it was 4 years after because I found a book in the library that had newspaper front pages for the next day around the world. I think that was the first time I saw any sort of mass destruction because I was really sheltered.
>was in 7th grade >live in Florida and going to small, shitty private school that encompasses all grades >during Math class, adult comes in and says that the WTC just got #rekt >meant absolutely nothing to anyone in the school under the age of 30 because New York is two billion miles away and therefore not actually real place in our minds >not being 2edgy4u; it just wasn't a big deal to us because it was so far away and in a place we'd only seen on television, and we were so young >suddenly we start "caring" when the principal says anyone who feels they need to go home early can do so >HAAAAAAAALLLLF-DAY MOTHERFUCKAAAA
A couple of the artsy-fartsy pretentious highschoolers were acting dramatic as fuck, and that's the extent of anyone in the student body really being affected by it here. Oh, that and there was a middle-aged Kindergarten teacher who looked like that rotten little toad bitch from The Oblongs, and, I shit you not, she was telling all of the small children that our school was going to be attacked next and that they were all going to do.
>>568091028 I'm sure I would have understood better if they spent more time explaining what actually happened. 90% of what they told us was about how the terrorists did this because they hate america and our freedom
>Be in Britbongland >Age 14 >come back from school >Mum is watching the TV from 0.2 inches away and crying over death of two buildings >tell her that being that close could damage her retinas >watch samurai jack in other room
I was like "oh shit" in my mind, because I was too young to be allowed to speak in such manners around my parents, which I was watching the news with at the time.
It was a big topic at school, but I didn't take part in it until someone asked me and I told him "I don't care too much about it. It's not like I can do anything about it, and other actions that affect people negatively. It's sad when people die, especially when they are killed before they have completed their lives, so to speak."
I then proceeded to tell him that the reason people are making a big fuss about it is because it happened in modern America, where people haven't really been affected by war at that grade before. It came as a surprise to the entire world. That the big, badass America was struck with a blow like that, out of nowhere. But people die in wars and acts of terrorism pretty much every day.
Ever since I learned about the concept of war, I've been sort of happy that it keeps happening. It IS a sad thing that people have to kill each other, don't get me wrong. I'm very glad, and thankful that it hasn't killed anyone I know, yet. (Except for my brother who was shot in the head in bosnia in the 90's) But right now, war is pretty much the only active thing we do, that can slow down our population growth. Because people breed like rabbits, and with each extra person on our planet, each person matters less in the society that we have. Long ago, when people lived in small, enclosed and isolated communities, every person mattered very much. Everyone had an important profession to follow, to make sure everyone survived.
Nowadays, people are ants.
Now, I didn't tell my friend all that, but it's what I've come up with ever since those young days of mine, when my brain was still developing.
>>568091561 not gonna lie, I wasn't smart enough in first grade to recognize what kind of retarded nationalist propaganda all that was, but I at least realized they were empty statements and shit didn't make sense
>>568081187 I was building two lego towers. Got fed up, smacked the shit out of them and the next thing I know, mom is looking out the window screaming "OH MY GOD" as the first tower collapses. Ever since then, I've felt guilt. Did I cause it? Probably not. Will we ever know for sure? No. Telekinesis sometimes manifests in kids, especially in connection to strong emotions, and I was pretty fucking pissed that the lego towers looked like shit...
I remember waking up for school that day. My dad was drinking coffee in his mug glued to the TV (west coast)
Tower 1 was just hit. My dad said it was an accident and aliens did it. He meant illegal aliens but as a kid I though he literally meant fucking aliens. I went to school that morning and told all my friends aliens blew up some big building.
By the time morning recess was over the second tower apparently was just hit. I remember our Jewish politically correct teacher walking our lime to class. She was fucking freaked out and in serious mode. I was fucking around cracking jokes and she made me stay outside while everyone went into class.
Eventually when I got in class she had the TV on. I remember hearing people curse on TV and of course we all laughed.
An hour or so later my mom pulled me out of school early. Tons of parents pulled their kids out that day for some reason.
Got home. Saw the first tower go down.
Was more exited than anything. Wanted to see the second fall.
News of pentagon News of Pennsylvania crash
Dis gun be good.
As a kid I was mostly hyped and didn't give a shit about anyone. Now I see things completely different. I realize how fucked that was and couldnt imagine being trapped their or losing a loved one in that way. Fucking terrorist shits
>>568091943 No, haha, but you know... There are some pretty wild conspiracy theories out there, some claim that the planes weren't hijacked or anything. If that's true (I don't believe it is but beliefs aren't always correct), hell... I could've caused it. I know I didn't but fuck, you know how you have some things when you were a kid that you feel bad about to this day? That's how I feel about that.
I just imagine a teacher at the front of a class and a load of Ike style toddlers gathered around >children listen close something has fappened >freedom is under attack >god bless America >please join me in a loud obnoxious USA chant out of respect to all the heroes lost today >U S A .. U S A .. U S A >please draw what you think freedom tastes like >if you make a bad drawing of freedom you go to camp X-ray as a terrorist for hating and besmirching freedom
>>568081187 3000 people dead from 9/11 attacks - 21,000 civilians killed in the war in Afghanistan. America are the biggest terrorists on the planet. Their crimes against humanity are what fuels the fire in groups like ISIS and the Taliban. America are the biggest terrorists on the planet. You deserved 9/11, and so much more. Not even being edgy, just stating the facts. America is the most scum tier country on planet earth, and the world would be a better place if the entire country was eradicated from the world forever. The worst part about the entire thing, is that Americans are proud to be a part of it. If I lived there, I would be so disgusted with the heinous crimes of my evil government, that I would want no part of it, and I would move to a neutral country. But when you're 23rd in education, everyone is either batshit crazy religious, or a complete moron, and when you are made to recite the pledge of allegiance before you are even able to read, it's no wonder you are all so indoctrinated and brainwashed.
>>568081187 i was at the hospital because my foot was swollen and the tv showed the incident a nigger started crying and wanted all to stand up and pray, i was the only one still sitting blaming on my foot the nigger then came and tried to do a magic spell something about the lord can give u the strenght to stand up i started to laugh and every1 looked at me with bad eyes
>>568092676 If eradicating America from planet earth meant getting rid of 4chan, I would happily pay that price. Along with all other American websites, hollywood, TV stations and TV shows. There is nothing America is currently giving the world that I would have a problem sacrificing to ensure they were completely wiped out. Also the internet would still exist, and my phone, and all my electronics, are Japanese. >>568092717 Regardless of how you feel about sandniggers, America has no right to just pave over countries, killing their civilian residents. >>568092742 Generalizations? Sure, maybe, but it's a safe generalization when it's true for the majority of the country.
I remember my dad not getting home until really fucking late at night because they locked down not only the construction site he was working on and the entire city he worked in was in complete panic. I then remember him being out of work for a good little while because of the terrible economic situation that followed afterwards. The actual event I barely remember, other than my mother getting ready to send me to school, and then breaking down while watching the morning news. That's really it though, I don't remember it too much. Nor do I really care to. Shit like that will always happen and its gonna happen again sometime in my life.
it was 20:15 here and i wanted to see the simpsons. but there were news everywhere! all normal tv program was canceled for news. i was like "what the hell do i care about america here in germany?" it sucked... in the end i watches the handball-bundesliga on dsf, one of the few channels with normal program.

I was living in Hawaii at the time with my ex and we were sound asleep about 4 am and got a phone call from my then stepdaughter who was in the US Air Force on a base in Spain - she said turn on the TV. And there it was. Both towers of the Word Trade Center on fire. I couldn't fucking believe it. It was sureal. Worst shit ever.
I came home from school when I saw it on TV, I thought "holy shit, this can't be real." I felt like I was watching a movie unreal. But when I saw the whole news about I was mindfucked and the war on terror and Iraq started.
Was working on my smokin hot 900MHz computer. After I saw Bush talk about the attacks on camera I knew the fucker was behind the attacks. He was lying his ass off and was clearly reciting speeches he had started rehearsing long before 9/11. Not everybody can be read like a book just from their body language, but baby Bush can.
>>568081187 >eating breakfast in hotel w/ parents b/c called in sick to school "with flu" so I could go with them on my dad's business trip to Chicago >watch news on TV >"what is terrorist dad? >get no response >later find out my dad's college friend was working there >mfw
>>568081187 Be 16. Second tower just went down when came back from school. Mother looking at news. Turns to me. "Karma just got back to the Americans." We nod and go about our lives like nothing happened. Pic very much related, you fucks.
>>568094691 Oh yeah, I'd really want to get murdered instead of going out on my own terms. Fucking idiot. And there were hundreds who were trapped in the tower for almost two hours in absolute terror and agony. Just listen to their final phone calls on youtube, they're all shitting themselves.
I can't tell if this is a implanted memory or not but I was in Pre-K and the teacher(s) had it on the TV. They were all watching while the kids played. I was watching too I thought it was cool as shit seeing a building blow up.
>>568095225 I never said they're stupid because they're religious. It probably plays a factor, for sure. But it's probably more to do with the fact they are 23rd in education, their public school system is a joke.
Here are the six primary categories for the people who still believe the 'official' 9/11 story (the bin Laden story propagated by most of mainstream media): 1. People who haven't researched the subject. 2. People who haven't researched the subject properly (eg, their research involved primarily, or exclusively, seeking out statements that would help reinforce their current belief rather than truly examining all of the evidence from both sides). 3. People who are desperate (consciously or subconsciously) to believe what they've been told because of what the alternative would do to the foundation of their perception of the world they live in. 4. People who have already told friends, family & colleagues that they believe the bin Laden story (and have also perhaps ridiculed people who do not believe the bin Laden story) and, at this point, they *really* don't want to have to admit they were wrong. 5. People who usually just go with the flow of mainstream media & academia because they're unaware of the fact that virtually all members of mainstream media & academia will not publicly express a view on a taboo subject when it could hurt their reputation or career. They also aren't aware that the majority of the members of mainstream academia are focused on work that doesn't require much of an understanding of engineering, physics or global politics, and their understanding of global politics is based largely on what they're told by mainstream media. 6. People whose beliefs are often strongly influenced by the beliefs of the vast majority, and who are under the impression that the vast majority of the civilized world accepts the bin Laden story as fact.

>>568094439 Certainly in the United States and for much of the Western world, the attack was jarring because up till then there had not been such an incident on US soil of that magnitude. For many it was the biggest since the fall of the USSR and for the younger generations, our equivalent of the Kennedy assassination.
I remember watching the events unfold and shortly after the first tower collapsed thinking that the second had to come down too, because otherwise it would not be as comprehensive. Not saying I wanted it to but that gut instinct I have came into play and I sensed that it would not be... complete otherwise. I can not explain it and will not turn this into a conspiracy thread but there you go.
It was momentous and American or not, it changed the atmosphere forever and the skyline of course. NYC does not look right without them.
>>568095514 According to the education index. Google is your friend. And I mean exactly what I said, it's a joke. When compared to other nations public school systems in the developed world, Americas yields among the lowest test scores. The kids are unruly and without discipline, the test scores are low, the teachers aren't paid enough to give a shit, dropping out is actually a legitimate option for students, while in other countries, the parents are held legally accountable, students are allowed to sit out of classes that are in contradiction to their religion, which is a large proportion of science studies, there's no effort to single out students specific abilities, everyone is just given the same mandatory studies. It's a joke.
>>568095990 I will agree that the education system is flawed, but that's something that can be fixed. You wouldn't destroy a country because it has a poor education system. That's like putting down your dog because it got a fucking splinter.

I was 15 years old so I remember it pretty well. I was sitting in a library at my school, staring at the television with a few teachers. At first we were just confused. No one thought it was a terrorist attack...
And then the second plane hit. My brother joined the army a few weeks later and spent a couple of tours in Afghanistan. It was kind of surreal, honestly.
I never cried though, but that is probably because no one I knew personally lost any loved ones. It was still pretty terrifying though.
>>568095990 I think the biggest problem is the teachers. I have a significant number of friends who are now becoming public school teachers, and not one of them are people I ever considered intelligent. It's just not well paying enough in the US to attract the best people.
>come home from school >be watching some TV >wtf is this action movie >Oh, USA is getting rekt >holy shit, I've never seen this much IRL violence before. >go on with my buisness. I'm after all a kid and not from the murricah.
so then what's the punchline? or is it one of those meta-jokes? i'm confused.
> When compared to other nations public school systems in the developed world, Americas yields among the lowest test scores.
compared to who, exactly? what sort of scores? there's a standardization between nations? like what?
>The kids are unruly and without discipline
what's the difference between 'unruly' and 'without' discipline?
>the test scores are low
what test scores? where?
>the teachers aren't paid enough to give a shit,
what teachers? where specifically? how much do they make? what's the quantifier of 'giving a shit'? >dropping out is actually a legitimate option for students such as? for what reasons? you can't drop out of school in any system except america's? >while in other countries, the parents are held legally accountable they are also, in america. truancy laws. vary by state. in arizona, there's a fine and jail time for the parents if the kids don't go to school. >students are allowed to sit out of classes that are in contradiction to their religion example? >which is a large proportion of science studies what percentage exactly? define large. > there's no effort to single out students specific abilities false. there is right now a biomedical high school in arizona. it's awesome. >everyone is just given the same mandatory studies. everyone in the country? false.
sorry, bro, but you sound like you are talking out of your ass. in america, we are taught to write succinctly, free of redundancy, and with justificatory reasoning as opposed to explanatory reasoning. you would fail by our standards.
>>568096369 that's not even close to being it. some kids just don't want to do shit, I know because I was like that until I got my shit together in 10th grade. I had tremendous respect for most of my teachers, and shit most of the ones who I didn't respect were smart as fuck but didn't give a shit about teaching.
>>568095784 typical american. When some one calls our their country for being a shitty world police that spends a ridiculous amount of money on fucking up the middle east so Europe gets flooded by fleeing muslims they respond with >America made 4chan/internet/peanut butter/some video game.
Guess what, i would gladly trade all that shit if the cancer that is your country would just disappear from the face of the earth.
>be 10 years old >woke up >went to go get ready for school >turned on the tv to watch dragon ball z while i ate breakfast >no cartoons, just live coverage on every channel >got to school, every kid was wtf'ing and angry about dbz not being on >teachers explained it to us during morning assembly >no one gives a shit because we're australian, why should we care?
to this day im still pretty mad about missing DBZ that morning, as im sure a lot of young australians are
the horror of missing our favourtie cartoon will always haunt us
>>568096167 No, you're right, it's not a reason to destroy the entire country, and I never suggested it was. I said America should be eradicated for the good of the rest of the world. They do nothing but start pointless wars, spy on other countries, harvest peoples information, exploit economies with multinational corporations, fund and arm terrorist groups, destabilize countries to the point of civil war, police the word, and then parade around telling everyone how wonderful they are. The poor education and overly religious population is what serves to keep you all nicely brainwashed into thinking you're the good guys, when in reality, as I said before, America is the biggest terrorist organization on the planet, pure evil.
>>568096617 You're way too stupid for me to even consider wasting my time having a discussion with. All your citations are available for you to view at your leisure on google. I'm certainly not going to spend my time copy pasting them for you so that you can ignore them and ask more retarded questions. I couldn;t possibly give any less fucks whether or not you choose to believe me, or whether or not you choose to look for them yourself. But if you want to educate yourself, that can never be a bad thing. Have fun now.
