Quotes #5 by Alpner Quotes #5 by Alpner
Quotes #5 | "What does a 3ft wall and 9/11 have in common? Americans can’t get over it"

After a couple "off" weeks I'm back with a new Quotes. I got an order from a friend for more then a hundred new stickers with funny quotes on it. I changed the background, font and size from previous design. Since I got many complains how "this sh*t doesn't belong here on DA" I probably won't upload all of them, but I will post a link where you can see them...

New collection:
DA: [link]
Facebook: [link]

The old "finished" collection
DA: [link]
Facebook: [link]

About the quotes:
1.) I don't own any of the quotes in my collection (unless it's stated otherwise);
2.) Credit is given if the ORIGINAL author of the quote is known;
3.) Even if they are racist, sexist, etc. there is no offense intended; They are made strictly with entertaining purposes;
4.) I don't own any (copyrights), so you can use them however you want them;
5.) Possibly there are some grammar mistakes and it would be much appreciated, if you notice them, to let me know, so I can fix them asap;

Well, the new generations are younger than 9/11, and, if it isn't hammered into them in the schooling system, this event will be largely accepted.
Where I come from, terrorist attacks are not NORMAL (sorry for caps lock, but I can't do italics, the politer means of emphasis), but they happen at least once a year. 26/11 is the most REMEMBERED, but we do get a lot. 
Japan was a victim of nuclear warfare, and the effects of radiation STILL haven't dissipated, leaving many children descended from survivors crippled or disabled in some way. 
Lets not even TRY to talk about Afghanistan. My seventh grade teacher told us that before she started teaching, she did private tutoring, and she taught a kid from Afghanistan. Around that time, there was a major bombing, and everyone was rather frightened- except the kid, who was used to it from back home (this is what she told me, do not take all this as facts).
I guess I'm just saying that the US should be thankful that 9/11 is the only BIG THING, and focus more on keeping kids from shooting each other at school.
That is my opinion, you are welcome to disagree; I am only 13 years old, so all the facts are not known to me.

Butthurt Americans can't take a Goddamn joke. Yes, 9/11 was horrible, but it was 12 years ago. Get over it, for Christ's sake. (inb4 you all call me insensitive and a bitch; I don't care what you have to say)

Agreed. While 9/11 was a tragedy, it's been over a decade. We should just move on with our lives now.
and I found a quote that fits the situation as well:
non-americans only have to hate americans from afar
us americans have to be annoyed up close

I agree completely =/  Sure, we can still mourn for the loses, but if we keep going on about it, even if we win the war, the terrorists still have a 'victory' because we won't move on.

I apologize for how rude my original comment was XD I didn't mean it like that, and I have nothing against American people. But what you said is very true. This is exactly what they wanted. To hurt or kill, and they did both, and the effects are long term. Only when people move on will it be the terrorists losses (I know this sounds weird, but I am so tired, it's 3AM)

It's quite alright, but yes, I am glad that someone took my opinion without blowing up at me, though I confess it an be quite difficult to explain without sounding rude. And fear not about it sounding odd, I understood you quite well, and I do hope you got some sleep.

This caught me by surprise and I laughed far more than I should have.

Though there isn't really anything bad about it as such. There's a big difference to disrespecting or forgetting something and getting over it. Eg the offence last year or the year before at the religious building being built near the site seemed really rude because A)Religions should not be judged by terrorists who try to justify their bullshit actions, nor does it mean all people of that religion are the same and B) Seriously? Near not on. As an outsider it just seemed really strange to be kicking up a fuss when they mentioned that little detail.

Its people like that make this world a very hateful place. People want to use Hiroshima as some sort of comparison to why we should get over 9/11. Why does this even come into the same convo? They are two different topics.These are innocent lives that were lost on both behalves. We should mourn their deaths and pay a tribute to them by never forgetting them. When someone jokes about these tragic events it shows me how many people just do not want peace. It gets the people who are sensitive about the subject really worked up and obviously are going to show some anger towards these people.

I'd argue the opposite, that people who react the way you do are the ones who make the world a more hateful place. The ones who dwell on misery, who never forgive or forget. The ones who wanted wanted this bullshit war on terror.

The people without the capacity to get over things are the ones who screw up the world more than any other.

Well, they shouldn't be FORGOTTEN. They should be remembered, but not dwelled on. For example, we still remember the Titanic and the Hindenburg, but we aren't obsessed with them. Honestly, though, I'm surprised that, to my knowledge, the Japanese aren't still mad. I mean, the US Government killed hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians. I'd still be mad at a man for killing ONE person I knew. I gotta respect Japan for not being outright furious with the US, even after all this time.

You can argue all you want, but look at the discriminatory joke he is making about Americans. People like him who tell hurtful "jokes" are the people who should think twice. How is this making a world a better place? The answer is, it is not.

I will never forget, and always remember my fellow Americans who died on 9/11/01 in that awful attack. R.I.P

You are overly sensitive, and have a frail sense of humour. Sorry, but it's the truth.

I'd like to think that the dead would want people to go on with their lives and look for happiness, rather than living in the past, forever dwelling on tragedy, demanding others to esteem their morbid habits.

The more brutal the joke, the greater the catharsis when you can finally let go of your pain and inhibition, and get a laugh at its expense. Dark humour is certainly not malicious in its nature.

Or you could just leave me alone. I did not say anything to hurt you or offend you. You clearly have a bad sense of humor, because that was not a funny joke. Maybe you have been desensitized to death, have you ever thought about that? I have moved on... I do not dwell on the past, but why should I forget? If one of your family members died, would you just forget them? No that would be an awful thing to do. Now would you stop harassing me for having a different opinion as you.

You are a hypocrite. I came to talk, not harrass you. Maybe help you see what your attitude looks like.

You want me to leave you alone for having a different opinion yet you took the trouble to come here and call Alpner a piece of shit?


And again, you don't understand humour, so don't judge me on that part. If the joke was not funny to you, that's one thing, but to come here and judge people who laughed is outright sanctimonious. Laughter is the best medicine. It helps people come to terms with a world full of horrors.

i know how you feel. i was lucky and didnt lose anyone but its definatly different. hiroshima had to deal with a WAR. this was a random terrorist attack. there is a HUGE difference. they are NO WHERE NEAR THE SAME. i am agreeing with you in evey aspect. i understad your upset and angered. as was i. but some people arent as sensitive. =(

Woah, woah, woah. I know you posted this months ago, but I'd still like to point this out:

It doesn't matter if it had to do with a war.

The people who were killed then were INNOCENT civilians. They were not soldiers. They did not do anything wrong. We should not ever look to the bombing of Hiroshima as a good thing. On that day, we caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians. Am I saying it was a bad choice to bomb them? No. The president had a hard choice. Either risk hundreds of thousands of American soldiers losing their lives in a battle to end the war, or kill Japanese innocents to end the war. There was no "right" choice in that situation. But, what was decided still should not be celebrated.

Let me put it this way: If Afghanistan completely leveled New York City, killing half the people who live there, in an attempt to get America to give up the war, wouldn't you be angry?

um, look im sorry, im not really one that knows much. i posted based on my knowledge. I agree, its not a good thing, but innocents dying is definatly not something to make a joke out of. That's why we "can't get over it" because if we did, it would be direspectful to the innocent dead. =/ I really didn't mean to offend anyone. I apologize if i did.

It's fine, really. It's just that, for some strange reason, some people done't even care that the bombing of Hiroshima killed countless civilians. They only care that it helped end the war. For some reason, I thought you were one of these people when I wrote that.
