Writer's Block: News development (Warning: contains a stupid idea I once had) @ 01:53 pm

Right now I am annoyingly: sad sad

What's the first major news event that you remember hearing about as a child? Where did you learn about it? How did it impact your world view?


Probably hearing about the 9/11 attacks on TV on, well, 9/11.

It didn't impact my current world view much because I would've learned that there are far too many Crystal Light noses (haven't used that term for jerks in awhile, have I?) in the world anyway. And also because, at the time, I was incapable of having an opinion on politics that made any sense. (I mean, where the sail would I have gotten one of the invincibility stars from Mario to kill the terrorists with? [The fact that I thought I wanted to kill them at all is also a part of how stupid I was back then, by the way. Good thing I only thought about that idea...])

Well, sometimes I feel like I haven't learned everything I should've learned by now. (In fact, I know I haven't - I only went through half of a therapy program for autistic children when I was young.) Plus, it's embarrassing to have to talk about stupid things I've said/done/thought.

Wanted to kill the terrorists? Yeah, now that I think about it, maybe they did.
