      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hard to know which is more tasteless, the video or his pizza.
You really are an asshole, aren't you? Can't you for just one day give your douchebaggery a fucking rest? Jeezus H Christ... :argue:

Where were you on this day?

 

I was in Squamish with two good friends. We did not know about it until later in the evening. Crazy.

I was also in Squamish, waking up to CBC Radio news reports of planes hitting the WTC towers, then of the collapses, and on... By the time I got out the door to head to the store, the sky overhead was full of great looping contrails of passenger jets stacked up waiting for a space to land at Vancouver.

 

Friend of mine was alone in her Cessna, flying from Calgary to Grande Prairie when a radio transmission announced that all North American airspace was closed, effective immediately, and that she had something like 20 minutes to land at the nearest airstrip, so she turned and headed for a small club field somewhere near Rocky Mountain House. No explanation, just an assurance that all would be made clear upon landing, and that failure to comply with the order to land could have dire consequences. She was pretty freaked out, trying to think what could possibly account for such a radio message, but none of her imaginings prepared her for the news she received upon landing.

Exactly how do you mean, "know"?

 

We were not made aware of it until that night. We were out climbing all day.

I'm fairly certain that Off-White's post was tounge-in-cheek. Too bad you didn't get the joke.
I get OW's humor just fine. He leaves it up to the reader to decide whether or not he's using satire effectively. You, OTOH, blatantly state the candidate's attempt at singing a tribute is tasteless. That's an entirely different brand of "humor." You are being a douchebag about this anniversary in every conceivable way that you possibly can. Please give your bold attempts at humor a rest for just one fucking day, will ya?

Sorry E-wank, as hard as you've been trying to get my attention, I'm still not going to fuck you.

I spent the whole day yesterday standing on my front lawn in silent remembrance.

 

When I watched the "kneeling Clydesdales" Bud commercial that evening, I wept.

I heard about it on the radio on the way to work that morning. When I got to the office, everyone was in the conference room watching it on TV. The Towers had already collapsed by then (0800 Pacific Time).
