Literally the first I'd heard of the attacks that day was when someone rushed into the classroom I was in to declare that a plane had crashed into the WTC, like it was the most exciting thing ever. :blobnervous:

From that point, all I heard was speculation until I got home and the whole ordeal was in Sky News non stop.


re: 9/11 

@Jo i remember hearing of it on IRC, but the mention was so without detail that i thought it was some small 1–2 person plane, and the most pointlessly theatrical attack ever.

later that day i went to visit my grandmother. that’s when i saw the scale bascially the moment i entered the room with the TV on.
