I had a friend there also, he says he saw the missile - I guess the word 'Confabulation' comes to mind!

once you see it you'll never forget it

when I was a kid, my grandfather told me about the time his childhood friend got sick of his Mom putting her damn cat before the entire family all the time .... and it always scratched/bit at him,

so they came up w/ a plan ....... time frame on this should have been about ~ 1910 ~

being in coal country and they could get all kinds of things that were used to set off charges to break out a vein of coal, he described them as paper tubes that had a set burn time ...... well, they took a bunch of these paper tubes and friction taped them to the cats tail, his buddy held the cat wearing gloves and still got scratched up a bit while my grandfather attached things to the cats tail and then lit the fuze, his buddy let the cat go and being along the railroad tracks the cat ran to the center of the tracks where it was clear, and then the first tube lit off, cat jumped about four feet straight up and run like hell, next tube lit off, cat let out a yelp and took off again, kept going until it was out of sight round the bend & never came back

now understand, when I was a kid my grandfather still had champion racing pigeons ....... so if a cat got into the coop it would kill until there were no birds left alive, so the only good cat, was a dead cat

I don't disagree, Sig220 the UN is an abomination - but that was not my point! I guess you've not been around the English much! I won't spell it out but you can 're-arrange!'

I once saw a YouTube video where Grover from Sesame St. flew into the Twin Towers. I'd say that was is about as likely to have happened.

Double bagging a cat in 1960s issue PX grocery store paper bags works too.
The neighbor's cat was always digging up my Mom's flowerbeds in front of our on Base Married Quarters home. So this enterprising kid double bagged old fluffy and set the package in front of our dog.
Dog got to sniffing and pawing,ms aid cat came out of the bag all teeth and nails, jumped straight up about 4ft, and lit out down the street, gone like a cool breeze...

The "missing cat" notices went up in the PX a couple days later. I told my folks about what happened about 30 years later.

They still chuckle.

Letís not go there about cats. You guys reminded me of a cat that would get in my garage and pee in my car if the windows were down Things didnít turn out well in his future. This was about 25 years back.

yeah, about 25 years back where I lived, had problems w/ a neighbors huge tomcat pissing up everything, screwing in the basement window wells waking us up all hrs of the night .......

fixed his ass one night he was trying to screw another neighbors cat, I slid the window screen up just enough, popped him w/ the .22 w/ the muzzle pulled back inside the house, he ran about 30 feet, went out got in the car, put gloves on did a slow roll by it w/ the door open, grabbed the tail & drove down on the main highway, dropped it 2 feet off the double yellow line under the street light, made 4-5 passes hitting it each time, it got hit on the road .......

Some of you are pretty sick fcucks.

I have no problem with killing a nuisance animal on your (or my) property. Deriving pleasure from inflicting torment and suffering says nothing about the nuisance animal (which is only doing what is in its nature), and everything about you.

That video is such a phony cheap ass POS edit it ain't even funny. In fact it's disgusting.

I know two people well, one a relative, both distinguished military men with long careers, that were there that day. It's no damn joke about what happened that day.

The most perplexing thing is how "they" went about stuffing those passenger bodies and all that aircraft debris into the interior of the 'E' and 'D' rings without being noticed. Man... those people must be good!

Then again, it might cause convulsions - so perhaps you'd better not!

I'm pretty sure that our very own moderator, WEG, saw the jet fly over him right before it hit the Pentagon.

Maybe he will respond to clear it up for you.

What a pant-load. Just so's you know, I was at, (and inside) the Pentagon after the attack. The conclusions in that article are BS!
