XKCD: rarely funny, sometimes hilarious



Remarkably close to the beliefs of actual 9/11 deniers, many of whom admit that the United States really does have enemies abroad, but still insist that George Bush had to concoct the most elaborate hoax in history in order to invade a couple of third-world countries, such as the United States invades every couple of years or so.

I like this picture and coincidentally I was arguing with someone who insisted that the first plane that struck the towers may well have been "a small plane" because there had been numerous news reports that said so.

When I pointed out that there can be no doubt the second plane was a passenger jet, he agreed. I said, "what the Hell is the point of the first plane being faked and not the second?"

The answer: "Because it proves the official story's a lie!"

That's the weird world of Truthers!

So you think I could borrow that picture at some point? (I will of course give you attribution) Did you make it?

ha ha!! excellent line, my friend. That says it all, - I don't think I've heard it put quite so well. This site is like an oasis compared to the ghastly conspiracy blogs I was just looking at.

I made a couple of posts along the lines of, - it all seems a bit complex; why the need for remote controlled planes, voice morphing, this orgy of needless demolition? The responses I received were bombastic & ludicrous statements along the lines of - The Truth Movement will some day be triumphant!!, or hackneyed pseudo science from God knows what source.

They all want a new investigation, - Bush has to pay for his crimes!!! We need to take back our country! We're living in a fascist state!

Your blog is excellent, - hope you keep it going, - all the best
