TVTrope of the Day:
Video Game Cruelty Potential


I won't be on tomorrow, so I'm posting this today:

September 11th, 2001, I was sitting in class. My school was doing some of the mandatory testing, which I had passed last year, so I was in the room where they were keeping all the ones who didn't have to take the tests. I was reading a book, and the poor shmuck they'd put in charge of babysitting us had put on some documentry about women in the 1920s.

Then one of the vice principals came in and changed the channel.

I thought it was a movie at first. The first tower had already been hit.

Then the plane flew right into the second one.

I don't remember much about the rest of the day. Just that they kept showing the damn thing over and over again. I remember getting on line as soon as I got home. My inbox was full of Out of Character mail from Hunter List, the big RP I was in at the time.

Where were you on September 11th?
