Comment: A stirring picture has been circulating around the Internet this week.
It seems to be of a tourist on the observation deck of one of the World Trade
Center towers moments before the attack.

Someone should tell that guy the pic is a fake. The aircraft is a 757 not a 767, he's standing on the opposite tower, the observervation deck wasn't open yet--- D'OH!!! [Dumb]

Comment: I was at this website one day and I saw pictures of the wtc with a
devils face in the smoke. The owner of the site says it's true because the
photographers took a lie detecter test. I was just wondering if you could tell
me if this is true.

Comment: There has been a lot of rumors going around, especially conspiracy
theories, about the events of 9/11. I lost my brother on 9/11 and would like
to know what the facts really are. Please address some of the rumors that are
now widely circulating.

Oh, I see. The site owner took a lie detector test about SOMETHING, not necessarily the veracity of the silly photo, so naturally, we are supposed to believe him implicitly. And, of course, we are supposed to ignore all the evidence that a great many people are able to fool lie detector tests. Sheesh...

Well that's pretty sad so I don't think a sarcastic answer would be in order...

Oh heck:
Where did you lose your brother? I lost my brother on 9/11 at the Pine Meadows Mall but we found him in the Electronics Boutique playing Cel Damage.

Regarding rumors, generally those involving the CIA, Illuminati, a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world (known as The Pentaveret) or the Clintons are true. Don't believe the others.

Comment: That is the most assenine thing I have ever heard--making man of the
year out of that horrendous killer. It is an insult to the people who lost
loved ones in the 9/11 attacks. If Time wants a Man of the Year might I suggest
Todd Beamer who had the courage to advert yet another tragedy on 9/11

Could be that cover article Weekly World News runs, whenever things get really slow in the Land of the Truly Gullible, on how the 'face of Satan' was found in some disaster or other.
It looks quite a bit like the face in the WTC photos, only with obvious retouch...erm, I mean, lots more detail. [Big Grin]

In fairness, this request could just as easily refer to the 'inside' of the WTC before 9/11. Certainly coulda been phrased better though.

This reminds me of something I've wanted to ask, but had no idea where to post it.

It says that the SLC is for those who passed the secret initiation rituals. So, I take it to mean that it's an unofficially restricted area (in theory, a newbie could post there, but they had better be wearing flame-retardant gear).

And what are these initiation rituals? Does it involve group sex, Jack Daniels, and a case of Twinkies?

Actually some of the original emails had an explanation. A fireman found a camera several blocks from the WTC (I guess "thrown clear" of the explosions). He took the film to Walgreens' one-hour and that's what came out.

Have you thought about doing a section on Sept 11th? What with all the
e-mails flying about about bogus flight numbers and quotes from
nostradamus and what not, there would be a lot use could use and research.

Yeah, that'd be just so relevant! C'mon, snopes, what's keeping you?!
How 'bout you add the photo where Satan's face appears in the WTC smoke, too? And the 'Don't go to the mall on Halloween' thing? Maybe you could even throw in a careful, objective point-by-point debunking of that French author who says the Pentagon crash was a hoax!

It's true. They really are pictures of Satan. I know, because I asked him and he told me himself. You had better be satisfied with that answer because I had to sacrifice 5 kittens and a fruit bat to get it.

Comment: 9-11: PENTAGON WAS NOT HIT BY A AEROPLANE

I have received several e-mails with a link to the following page, which
claims that Pentagon was NOT hit by a Boeing(!) You might want to take a
look at it.

I am absolutely sure that no one else noticed that but you! Thanks for telling us, or we would have never known. I think it's in order for you to spread your knowledge to every place you can think of! Actually, if you haven't already, I would elaborate on that and make a chain email so I could send it to all of my friends! [Roll Eyes]
