Q: To Date or ....

Not to Date? It is a question. Met and chatted up chick. Through the course of the conversation we got to what cities have you been too, what did you do there, etc. Normal 'getting to know you' banter.  Well, she showed me some pics of her up in some skyscraper tourist attraction in HK and I asked her if she was able to go outside on the roof.  Answer was no.  So, then I showed her pics of the World Trade Center and told her how I had stood on the roof of this building.  I then asked her if she knew these buildings.  I got a 'no'.  I have to admit I was a bit huh?  But I accepted that she just didn't recognize them, so, I explained that these were the buildings that were attacked on 9/11, bombed by jetliners.  I even showed her pics of the attack.   She then said to me she never heard about this attack before.  I was like double Huh??,,, But I kept my mouth shut and explained 9/11 to her a bit.  

I was semi-ok with everything up until then,, I mean, I do want to get a bit of the ol' In/Out, In/Out,,, and she's a nice girl,,,,   but then,,, I told her how 3000 people had been murdered on that day and that it was a day that changed America, and indeed the world forever.   Then she asked me,,,,,, 'how?'     I'm now at the point where I just don't think I can see her anymore.  Is that the dumbest question in the world ever asked, or what ?

 

  How?   jeez louise.....    what a fkn clueless creature....  I just don't know what to do,,, yeah,,, I want a Slow Ride,,,  but seriously,,,,  that fkn clueless,,, how does a terrorist attack, flying jetliners to use as an ultimately lethal bombing, killing device, into two of the most important, iconic structures of our nation in our number 1 city, that murdered 3000 people change a country that had been relatively unexposed to domestic terrorism until then?  How?,,,  huh,,, How?  wtf?   I'm thinking ending it now with her actually.

 

so, what do u guys think?

I wouldn't write her off just yet cos like icnif and Ambi say, she might just not care about U.S news much or even really know about it.

 

It would be a big red flag for me though, she shows all the signs of being another 'very nice' but vacuous, shallow, materialistic zombie.

 

I'd give her another chance but if she shows signs of having little or no interest in anything other than selfies, pop culture, reality tv /game shows/soaps, obsession with her looks, how much other people's phone, house or car cost, other people's marital status, her wechat updates showing everyone the noodles she had for lunch and shopping....  walk away and don't look back mate.

Why wouldn't you tell her about 911, instead?

The problem I would have is 'what to tell ...', 'cause the official narrative was scientifically debunked several times ... 

 

1. Both buildings collapsed into their footprint what can happened only at controlled demolitions;

2. NORAD run training exercise of ''plane's hitting the high rise building ..." few weeks earlier ...;

 

5.  "Follow the Money": .... buying Option Puts at the right time/before the event by the owner of the towers and others 'close to the plate' ... and similar trades on NY Stock Exchange ... 

 

... and finally, ''shattering one's 'official narrative' dreams ...'':

 

7. US Police as an entity cannot be that stupid that 19 jerk-offs could come into USA undetected ... That is just an improbability, especially when taking into account all NSA spying which went on at the time of the event! 

 

I would say, you'll most likely get the same ''What's that?" Q in any other country out of the West. We're counting 17+ years passed since ..

However, the event is very important, unforgettable to you as an US citizen.

'YES' to a date ...!

China has no friends, maybe a quasi-friend in Pakistan, but I doubt Pakistan would actually send troops if China was invaded. Since China has no friends and is the center of the world and screw everybody else, WAIT FOR IT, the 9 eleven incident was not reported in the press in China for 2 weeks after it occurred.

 

It is amazing to me what never gets in the news in China, I have to discuss current events rather dangerously with kids I am sending to Canada so they don't look like fools when they get there, try explaining what Juvenile Crime is to a teenager and watch the incredulity of a "deer in the headlights".

I do get some sadistic enjoyment out of this with my collection of articles about Chinese students cheating and how many get throwed out, or put in jail for fraud using fake ID's for tests. I spend about a week going over this and telling them if they cheat and make me look bad, I will be waiting for them when they get of the plane in China to spank them publicly on Weibo so I can finally be deported. The worse part they don't seem to realize is this cheating is not in the news in China at all except domestic cheating on the gaokao, and every academic in the west is watching them because they all know they can't write a personal statement and have been cheating all their life and want you to pay for a full year, get caught, boot you, and have you pay a full year somewhere else and start over, thanks for the money you cheating sucker.

You realise people in China are conditioned to not be engaged in politics? You really don't, do you? They can't even get facts straight about stuff that happened in their own country. A girl who doesn't have a strong, emotionally-loaded opinion on a heavily divisive socio-political event. And you can't respect her for not understanding the social cue to evoke somber reverence. Maybe this girl pretended not to understand while she was thinking: "stop showing me pictures of a terrorist attack site, dipstick, you're spoiling my mood." You Americans go around telling people which of the 52 states you're from, as if they're as relevant as nationalities. Do you scoff at a girl who doesn't know about California or Florida?
What are you thinking? Don't date her, she deserves better

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
