Comment: I have heard "unconfirmed" reports that although this is true we
also had Air Force Pilots in the air after the first attacks and when the
plane stopped responding and turned off it's transponder we shot it out of
the sky. Those same reports say that that is also the reason that there
were no up close pictures or coverage of the actual crash site.

Comment: I heard about the picture of 9\11 when the two towers were on fire. The
smoke of the two towers formed a face that looked like the devil. Is this
true? Do you have the picture?

Did you know that there is a nifty tool that you can use to see if a certain picture is on the website? It's called search! Isn't that an amazing new technology?! [fish]

Well, the English are safe, given that 999 doesn't give a proper date (and September '99 is past); and in Melbourne, we'd have no problems, 'cos our emergency numbers are either 000 or 11444. Not much to work with.

But there's still a problem. Will we have to watch out on 12th of January or 1st of December?

Comment: re: the accidental tourist

The picture of a "guy" on top of the World Trade Center is one of a series
of humorous manipulated photos in which the same "guy" is pasted into
several historical photos/drawings. From JFK's limo to Lincoln's
assination, to the Hindenberg, the concorde, the USS Cole, he's
everywhere.

If you'd like, I can send them to you.

Comment: Hi: Heard preposterous theory from someone today. They stated
that George Bush ordered/organized the 911 towers disaster, I assume with
the help of the CIA. Have you received any other legends of this nature?

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

I don't know about Todd but his widow seems to enjoy "adverting" the tragedy...

Comment: Hello,

I was wondering if you know this picture:

It's a photograph from a guy standing on top of the twin-tower. Behind him
you see the plane that is about to fly
into the twin-tower.

Do you know if this picture is real?

Comment: I have seen two weird photos over the net (attached). One was a picture of
a plane coming into the World Trade Tower from the observation deck dated
9/11/01. Another one is a thunderbolt coming to earth. What is weird about
these is that the same guy, in the same clothes, is in the foreground of
each picture. Is there any history on these?

This has got to be the slowest person on the planet. Not only is it May 2004, but shouldn't the same guy in the same clothes tell them a little something?

There is no sarcasm for this one.

Comment: I would like to ask about the rumors concerning a phrase "All Your Base Are Belong to Us." According to one website, an alleged phenomenon started when a poorly translated intro to Zero Wing Sega Genesis was turned into a flash movie. Suddenly, according to the same website, phrases from the intro like "All your base are belong to us," "someone set up us the bomb," and "take off every zig" appeared as graffiti, on billboards, and on school signs. Although some of their photos appear doctored, most appear to me as genuine. Is the "All Your Base" phenomenon real? I don't know the exact URL of the website, but it can be found by Googling "All Your Base."

Comment: have you seen the picture , that looks like it has been taken
from the world trade center just before the plane hit? There is a man in
the front, and you see the plane coming toward the camera in the
background.
