Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm actually having a hard time starting this thread, because it seems incredibly difficult to be sincere about anything anymore, especially on the internet, and especially here. Maybe that shouldn't be the case. Maybe it shouldn't take the anniversary of a national tragedy to shake off all the ironic, detached bullshit that seems to come with being on the internet.
But today's the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. And I know news sites are flooded with stories about the attacks, the aftermath, survivors, victims and everything that's changed since. And I know that it's become kind of a cliche to yell out things like "never forget!" or what have you. But even with all of that, it's amazing how many memories of that day come flooding back at the slightest provocation. Where I was when I heard, how surreal everything felt, how little anyone seemed to know.
