      Oh get over yourself. Humor is a natural way of dealing with tragedy.

      Also of note, 9/11 was 10 years ago, get over it. If that’s still the go-to for something you see as being a ‘too sacred to talk about’ tragedy, you need some perspective on the world.

        Geeze Dig, so sorry if the general inability of the nation to get over the 2,977 innocents killed by cowardly attack on that September morning is getting in the way of you pursuing your vapid little existence.

        Am absolutely positive I’ve scrapped better than you off the bottom of my shoe.

          Vetter, even those who serve in the military (such as myself) have gotten over the event. Yes, what happened was a tragedy and also yes; those whom have lost their lives will always be respected however America got it’s ‘revenge’ and yet we’re still sticking our nose in business it doesn’t belong in.

          It has indeed been ten years and it really is time to move on. No reason to continue to hold a grudge such as this. Not only that, but Dig was merely stating his opinion in a way he saw fit. There is no reason to attack his character for voicing his opinion, regardless if you are protected by your petty computer monitor.

          [And my saying that, of course, marks me hypocriical however I really could care less. I don’t get paid enough to protect your sorry asses.]

  7. July 1, 2011

  8. July 1, 2011

    I don’t know, but if they would rebuild this time with THAT material, there might be more buildings standing next time. You think?

    • July 7, 2011

    Not sure, but I’d stand under it next time.

    • July 19, 2011    

      Yes, during both disasters, people who stood under it were spared.

      • August 5, 2011    

        again with the “next time”…it’s a conspiracy i tell you

  18. July 15, 2011    

    This is a Torii Gate – an entrance to a sacred site. They are generally made of solid old growth hardwood logs. It is more likely the foundation and construction methods that kept this gate from falling, rather than the material, though a solid log would have more structural integrity than a split or sawn log.

      Thanks for giving a proper answer!

  19. July 17, 2011

    Great question! If only the rest of the city was so indestructible!

  23. August 9, 2011    

    It’s made of two pillars of solid awesome, and a big bar of Chuck Norris.
