I went to the 9/11 museum the other day and I thought it was really well done. The highlight of my visit was walking by two dudes on a bench inside the part of the museum located on the foundation of one of the towers and one of them is explaining to the other that: "I don't think the 3rd plane hit the pentagon, they never found any pieces of a plane, and everyone says it was a missile." He actually happened to be sitting 20 feet from a large chunk of fuselage recovered from the pentagon. Has anyone else been and what did you think?

The new Magic School Bus series that Netflix funded is getting an episode about airplanes and they're going to cover plane safety rules.


The new Ms Frizzle looks like April from 1989 Ninja Turtles.

Did you point that out to them? I would've. Probably would've tried to rub their noses in the wreckage like a bad dog, and go "NO!"

Yeah, slavery was about as bad as 9/11.

Admission was $21 a person I think. Then you had to walk by a bomb sniffing dog (that happened to be asleep at the time), and walk through an authentic TSA checkpoint. It even had one of those bomb sniffing machines (in case the dog is sleeping). I thought it fit with the theme perfectly. The gift shop was kind of lame. Mostly books about 9/11, american flags, and model fire trucks. There was a pretty awesome "dogs of 9/11" bookmark that I almost bought though.

No idea what that thing is, but it looked pretty metal with a bunch of guys welding and grinding it with huge sparks flying every where.

I went to NYC on my honeymoon last year. The 9/11 Memorial wasn't finished, but you could go in to the reflecting pools. I was surprised by how much it moved me - scales of disaster are hard to fathom and we don't really have skyscrapers on your scale in the UK, especially out of London.

By far the most touching palace was St Paul's Chapel. I'd never heard of it before and we didn't realise the 9/11 connection, but I've always liked old churches so we went in. That place nearly had me in tears to be honest. I really felt the anger and upset that New York must have felt that day.

Seth MacFarlane was supposed to die but didn't so I think by default that makes 9/11 worse.

New York is a terrible place to vacation. I only go there occasionally because of work and because I have some family there, and I hate every minute of it every single time.

I think it's more like this:

The owner of the WTC had a doctors appointment that morning. It got cancelled so rather than go to work he decided to go for a walk. This was a few weeks after he insured his buildings against terrorist attack. Also, coincidentally, both his children, who also worked in the buildings, decided that would be a good day to be late or just not show up.

a few years after it happened I was in a local museum for some reason and they had this huge loving book that was just thousands of pictures of people reacting and stuff related to 9/11, it was pretty great. They had copies for sale for a couple hundred bucks a pop and I regret not buying it.

The question has been asked on several occasions why on that morning Mr. Silverstein decided to attend a dentist appointment rather than eat breakfast as he normally did at the Windows on the World. There have been numerous theories as to what might have happened. Over a decade of research has been project into examining every public record that could be found. There has been no direct link to Silverstein in direct connection with 9/11. However there has been many unanswered questions as to what really caused the twin towers to collapse. It has been shown from satellite footage that there was some use of a directed energy weapon by a foreign power that could have caused the collapse of the Twin Towers that morning. There is also the possibility of an inside attack by the United States Government but in the past few years strange evidence has linked certain factions of the Japanese Goverments to the attack of 9/11. More investigation is underway.
