If this was an American company they should be ashamed and I hope they go out of business. They would deserve nothing less. Tragedies like this are not for making fun of or making into games. I hope the families of the ones who died in the attack sue there a$$ off.
At this link you will see a longer version of this clip, as experienced by a 20 something young man. His comments at the end are worth hearing. https://youtu.be/Wt75Chh0y7Q
Regarding the tech and not the subject matter, I watched this clip and the longer version on YouTube. I zoomed the screen all the way out till the player was about 4 1/2" wide, got up close to the screen, fixed my gaze at a distance, and was able to bring the two images together to form a 3D image. (Google "Magic Eye" and go to Images.)
Now, regarding the subject matter, It did not seem to me like they are trying to present it as a game but rather as a 3D simulation of the experience. I don't think it was intended to be entertaining.
This reminds me of the day I drove by a town fair and saw children sliding down a huge inflatable replica of the sinking Titanic. The structure tilted so that kids could slide down the boat walk and into an imaginary ocean. It struck me then that given enough time, historic tragedies become practically unreal to new generations of Americans. I hate to say it, but there will likely come a day when the terror of the falling Twin Towers will be used to draw our entertainment addicted public to a new and thrilling 9/11 amusement park ride...

The molten metal was the plane melting. With all the debris that fell on top of it, it acted like a furnace. Where it then raised the temp enough to metal the metal from the plane. Once it mixed with water from the fire protection it exploded.
There is a good show on Smithsonian channel called the missing facts or something to that affect.In it they point out that when you have melting aluminum and you add water it explodes. They have seen this in factories that produce it. This is where they believe the explosions came from and what actually caused the falls. It has been proven that steel structure could of survived other wise. Watch the show its is very good, even if you don’t believe what they say.
Anybody can speculate all they want, but the facts are:
Al Qaeda terrorists flew jets into those towers and they fell, people died, and many others were hurt, in more ways than physically... which means the terrorists succeeded.
And that's all that matters.
BumsNightmare - The physical and emotional damage inflicted was very high, but what the terrorists did that left a real lasting effect was that they effectively turned our government against us. We are treated like cattle at the airports now in the guise of "safety". We are monitored around the clock through video when we walk down the street, or our emails and all internet activity is logged. Phone calls monitored. WE lost more than people and buildings that day. We lost our freedoms.

Actually what they meant was it was the end of a cycle, and not the end of the world.
Image a straight line, now image a wave line the cross that line going up and down an equal distance. Now image a dot on the wavy line following it. Now every time dot touches the straight line it completes the cycle.
With that thought in mind remember that everything in the universe is moving(even our milkyway galaxy). Now the dot on the wavy line is the milkway, and the time it takes for it to touch the straight line from point to point takes 60,000 years.
The Mayans figured this out 100s of years ago and that is why their calendar stopped in 2012, it is because the cycle time restarted after we crossed the straight line. So now you can pretty much reuse the calendar from the beginning again.
So they did not mean the earth would die they just meant it was the end of a cycle that all things go through.

You people are the perfect example as to why all religion must go. You all claim to worship the same god but can’t even get along enough to praise him.
Man corrupts everything he touches, he twist it to fit his idea of what it should be. He takes the most innocent thing in the world and will find away to hurt, twist, and destroy it. The only religions that did not go out and kill in the name of god(s) were the so called pagan religions. If you want to see what it means to practice what you preach. Then look at the way the Native Americans lived before Europeans landed here. They actually lived there lives according to their beliefs. Not like christians, muslims, jews, etc etc. They respected each other and took pride in that. When they did fight it was not in the name of god. It was for mans reasons not because of their gods.
I personally wish that all the self righteous aholes would either sthu or disappear.
You can believe in any god you want, but please stop turning it into a stupid religion for the sake of the rest of the world.

That attitude is exactly the wrong one. When the cops do their jobs everyone yells and screams “NO! BAD COP!” you all make me sick with this attitude.
Before you starting calling me a commie and everything else. I will say this. I do not believe that everything the police do is correct. They do cross the line sometimes and they should be punished when they do. You also have to remember that they have certain procedures they have to follow to keep themselves safe regardless of who is in the back seat. Don’t forget that there are kids out there that do very bad things. Now, this kid might not of been one of them, but you never know what a scared person will do.
Your also skimming over the part “But, later in the day, the mother of one of the girls called police, contending Harris’ daughter had bashed her child against a wall and struck her in the face.” which could be considered as felony assault.
So before you start yelling “BAD COP!” stop and think.

I do agree with what everyone here says. I would just like to add though , that even though the Idaho plant may be state of the art and meltdown proof. Nothing is 100% certain except for death. Anything Man made will fail at one point or another.
Regardless if the plant can burn its own waste. It still has to be stored until it does burn it. Which in and of its self causes a small chance of leakage.
Now if they could burn waste from the older plants too, that would be awesome.
I am not against nuke power(i always wanted to see a real Godzilla lol) as long as the pros out weigh the cons, and it is done with some intelligence. No short cuts like in Russia, environmental hazards taken into account ie. earth quakes, and they keep the plants far from large human habitats just in case. Like others I do care about the environment
I think places like L.A. and Los Vegas would benefit from one or two right now, and to be on the safe side build them in Nevada or Arizona to avoid earthquakes.

Number 2 makes perfect sense. If you think about negative people all the time then you yourself become negative.
There is a difference between thinking about doing good for others and thinking about someone in particular. You waste time and energy thinking about those who will most likely never change their ways. I personally have cut these type of people out of my life before, and once I did this i noticed that my mood, and general well being improved.
The quote is not meant to look at your family and think “Oh, I am not happy today. I better leave my family” We all know that there are days when you want to kill your brother/sister/spouse/relative, but there is also only so much you can do for someone before they drag you down with them.
i.e. I cut someone out of my life that would rather pay there internet bill so they could keep playing WoW than pay there rent to keep a roof over their wife and kids heads. They never cleaned there home. It had piles of trash and dirty dishes all over the place. She would call him at work 2 times and hour to tell him what she done in the video game. They did nothing but complain and make excuses why their lives were the way there were.
Those people I cut from my life because I realized they would never change and they started to make me be in a bad mood when I was around them. I couldnt walk into their home without feeling the hibby jibbies. So sometime its not worth thinking about the negative people.

You people are so quick to point fingers and say “Bad COP!!” or say it is the man trying to keep the average citizen down.
Stop and think before make a judgment. A Police officer receives a report of what looks like car theft or breaking and entering of a car. As we all know criminals carry weapons. So, when the police get a call(s) they have to automatically assume the worst case scenario. It is the difference between then going home and seeing there families, or their families laying then to rest 6 feet under.
SO, before you start pointing fingers try placing yourself in the shoes of the officers. It is not socialism is basic safety of the officers

What he says about NOT HAVING TO GO to college is absolutely correct. Not every job needs a degree to do, and if you put the time are very well paid jobs. Trade-skill jobs like Plumbing, HVAC (installing not technician) , and Electricians are a good example of this. I have work HVAC and have gotten a Networking Degree. If you put the time in HVAC you can make very good money.
The problem today is people want to start at top pay and not earn it by starting at a pay scale according to their experience.
HVAC = Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning

Oh yes, it is the end of the world to accept someone for who they are and not who you think they should be. If it does not fit inside your little box then it is all bad. I would bet that if some man did not put it into the bible then most people would not care, but a person put it into a book and claimed it is the word of god. Then it most be true.
I have worked with gay people on and off for years, and I will say that they are just the same as you and me. They all want the same things in life. The only thing different is who they
want to share their lives with. It should not matter what a person does behind closed door sexually as long as it does not involve animals or minors, or kids. Try to judge someone by how the act and how they treat their fellow man.
And no I am not a lefty or a liberal. I just believe in treating someone by how they treat me. Being closed minded to accept someone by this method is just retarded.
You don't have to believe in the Bible if you choose not to, but some people do. Why are you so intolerant of people who don't want their country to turn into Sodom and Gomorrah?
Whoa...hold on. Are you judging? Why is it OK to conduct deviant homosexual activity but not do similar with an animal? Both are unnatural and disgusting. Is just a matter of time before the progs are pushing bestiality as Ok and NAMBLA becomes more mainstream.

If you choose to abandon your country and plane attacks then you are a traitor. You should lose your citizenship immediately. If you choose to go to enemy’s country and fight against your own country then then you give up all rights provided by your country. Plane and simple!!!
I personally would have declared Jane Fonda a traitor during the Vietnam and had her arrested and put on trial, but that’s just.
All these bleeding hearts mindsets is what is destroying this country. I mean come on, the man joined the side of the enemy. He moved across the world to live and train and plane attacks against his home land. In my book he has no rights, IT IS WAR!!!!! not a traffic violation.
If he was inside our own borders then yes follow the laws when trying to apprehend him, but since he moved then i say to bad you die on the battlefield.

I am laughing my butt off reading all you people acting like it is the end of the world because someone said “sex” around kids.
Just a FYI, they do not teach your kids how to have sex. They teach your kids how the body works, so your precious angels can try to use knowledge and wisdom and say no to sex at such a young age. And if you think that your kids will never hear words like anal sex or something else along that line, then you need to think again. They will hear it from friends, in hip hop, in movies, and online.
To think that if you never mention sex to a kid will keep them from doing it is just retarded in and of its self. When I was in school they made a point about not having sex is the best way to prevent anything bad from happening, but they also knew that middle school and high school kids will make stupid decisions. It is better to educate them about something than to let them walk through life ignorant about basic things.
And no I am not a flaming liberal. I believe in using common sense when comes to things like this.

I personally think that man uses god way to much to explain stuff. There is no proof of god other than MAN put together a collection of writings that they wanted others to follow and think like they did. Or to give them an excuse to rape, murder, and steal through out history.
These Rights that people claim are a gift from above are no more than the human desire not to be subjected. No person wants to be beaten if they make a mistake, or look at someone, or for just being born. These desires to live our life without fear of such things is just natural. Just like no animal in the wild likes to be put on a leash or in a cage.
Now, I like a lot of Glenn says so I am not bashing him on this. But I do think that people use god waaaaayyy to much. You think god gives a crap if you score a touchdown, or hit a home run? You think that he favors one group of people of another? So far what I have seen of your god is a squat. He/She allows kids to be molested, killed, and sold, allows millions to be killed in his name. Is this type of god worthy of your praise?
So to claim that your gods gift us with certain rights is just nonsense to me. It is only natural for one to have these desires not to be subjected. I think when we noticed that we had Free will compared to other animals. We could not explain it and there fore(as always) claimed that the gods willed it so.

ALL RELIGION IS MADE UP. It only takes 1 person to convinces another, who convinces another who convinces another, etc etc. The story of Jesus happened in Egyptian religion with Osiris(i think), and it happened in religion before that, and before that. New religions replace old, and they barrow from old to make new. It is the easiest way to convert people. Just look at what the Christians did to the Celtics of Europe. They create holidays to correspond with existing “pagan” holidays to convert them easier.
Islam was made up just as Judaism was made up. Only reason why we have religion i think, is because 10,000′s of 1,000′s of years ago. A cave man could not explain why things like lightning happened. So he INVENTED magic to explain it. Which evolved into religion as one of them tried to understand it better. Which is where we got Shamans, and Which Doctors from.
So unless man was riding dinosaurs back in the day(I wonder what Jesus and Muhammad rode) ALL RELIGION WAS MADE UP!!!
Gee, like all the secularists' vaunted ideological/political constructs? You may be onto something....

Now reverse the genders in your story. If MALE workers did this to FEMALE worker. There would be HUGE sexual lawsuit. It is not ok for workers to act like this on the job. After hours is a different story, you can take it as you see fit. But while clocked in, it should not happen from any sex. Its called SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENT.

They need to put him in charge of ICE, and get rid of that useless bag of flesh running it now.
No, replace that man-thing Napolitano, with Sheriff Joe, he'd close the border faster than a burrito would go through you. Does this mean Sheriff Joe is finished investigating Oweblameus' birth certificate? I hope not.

The only things a Union is good for anymore are to keep Alcoholics and lazy people with jobs. The only things they do for the average person is cause price increases with excessive pay increases, and take money from the worker to fill their own pockets. Lets not forget, getting people like Ouseless in office.

I think you better check your history book again. The Spanish Inquisition was a religious tragedy. In the name Catholicism (Christianity) Spain kill 10,000s of 1000s of people to try and unify the country.
And here are some reasons why people do not like the christian belief (as well as others)
1. in the name of god, 1,000,000′s of people have been slaughtered.
2. They stole all their holidays from ever other “Pagan” religion before them, to make it easier to convert people.
3. MOST HYPOCRITICAL PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MEET IN MY LIFE
4. more recent, in America while settling the west. Forced native american’s to speak only English and forced them to cut the hair, and force feed them Christianity.
5. even more recent, played 3 card Monty with child molesters and acted as if nothing happened. Only to let them lose on new innocent victims.
6. Rake in millions of dollars and by saying “Give to the church and your prayers will be answered”(something to that effect)
7. The Arrogance of “My faith is the only correct faith” BS attitude.
Now all these things were done by man, but we all know that we associate the acts of man to the religion. Sometimes it is warranted(musical pedophile) sometimes not. So please stop being so high an mighty about your faith is the best faith. Heck, you can’t even agree on how to worship the same god.
