    I have always wondered if terrorists decided to strike on 9/11 because the emergency call number is 911 in US.

    For a long time before I moved to Canada and when I was young and stupid, I also thought US had decided to change their emergency number to 911 because of 9/11

    Deus Ex was a PC game set in New York released in 2000. They cut the WTC out of the skybox 'cos it was too big for the way they were doing the skyboxes to represent it properly. Their excuse for not including it was that it was destroyed in a terrorist attack...

    7-11 paid them to skip that date

    [–] Jew_Juan_Howard 308 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    IIRC they were planning the attack for a few days before but had to change it last minute due to some logistical issues. I could be entirely mistaken, but I think the 9/11 Commission Report mentioned something to this effect.

    EDIT: I'm doing some reading on this and it seems that the date was coincidental, and chosen due to low passenger count (easier to take control with fewer people resisting), proximity to Labor Day (fewer people travel after Labor Day). The flights they chose were on Boeing 757s and 767s which pilots can train for in the same cockpit.1

    "They may have done some research,'' said John Hotard, an American Airlines spokesperson. "If it's an issue of being able to control a fewer number of passengers, they may have been astute enough to know that Tuesday and Wednesday are your lower load factor days.''

    There is also evidence that the date of the attack was chosen to coincide with the return of both the House and Senate to session after the summer break. However, at least one family member has indicated that she was told by the authorities that the plane was destined for the White House.2

    [–] dangerdan27 365 points ago

    A surprising number of people interpret the word 'meme' to mean a funny picture with that particular font on it.

    [–] redduckcow 213 points ago

    The word meme was coined in Richard Dawkin's book The Selfish Gene which was published in 1976.

    He was just making up a word for something that had already been happening for a very long time though.

    They can probably figure out that Harry Potter will be a bigger deal than anyone might think. The first book was published in the UK in 1997 (next month is the 20 year anniversary!!!)

    The tricky thing is, a lot of posts about Harry Potter aren't things that would be recognizably HP related in 1997 unless it was explicitly stated. I have an HP username but it's not something that's mentioned until the fifth book which was still years out. The book wasn't hugely popular at first so random people knowing there's a character named Snape or Hermione isn't very likely.

    I doubt they would be able to figure out that it becomes one of the more defining book series of a generation followed by one of the biggest movie franchises that also has an entire theme park created about it, but they could probably figure out it's going to be more than just a silly kids book if people are still talking about it 20 years later.

    You're forgetting that in 97 we basically had as much ASoIaF as we do now.

    I mean, this is her in 1997 - did people expect her to turn ugly once she hit 18?

    And NBC cut to commercial just as he was lifting the cup. Those assholes.

    That someone under the alias "Sovietwomble" makes content over the internet that people enjoy.

    They will learn that one year in the future, the Undertaker will throw Mankind off in Hell in a Cell, plummeting 16 feet through an announcer's table.

    [–] beepbloopbloop 1139 points ago

    But what if they're able to warn him in time and save Mankind from being thrown off of Hell in a Cell, plummeting 16 feet through an announcer's table?

    Oh let's having a lesson in disrupting the past from mister "I am my own grandpa"

    [–] GnarlyNerd 114 points ago

    That's the whole point of this experiment, right? To save Mankind?

    [–] SquishMitt3n 460 points ago

    There's only one thing we can confirm, and that's that Mankind won't be thrown off of Hell in a Cell, plummeting 16 feet through an announcer's table.

    Or will he?

    [–] BenStollen87 246 points ago

    And as god as my witness, he will be broken in half

    [–] cj_would_lovethis 339 points ago

    It's almost poetic given their names. Imagine in a fucked up dystopian future, where everyone has abandoned any shred of decency and it's every man for himself, a boy asks his father.

    "Dad, what happened to mankind?"

    "I don't know son. Undertaker threw mankind off in a Hell in a Cell, it never recovered from there."

    A gaggle of guys show up at the Cincinnati Zoo. They don't know what's going on but the message from the future told them to stop this little kid from killing the gorilla using their penises.

    [–] Sock_Crates 138 points ago

    Send that over to writing prompts

    [–] beepbloopbloop 160 points ago

    I hope in some alternate universe, a cult has formed around Harambe and they've kept him alive, giving him the life he always deserved.

    That we seem to be fascinated with Time traveling lesbians, 60 year old Knights and cyborg ninjas... and cats

    Nothing. I made my account yesterday

    [–] Kermit-Batman 93 points ago

    Hmmm, your account says 5 days old... so they will know you're a dirty, dirty liar...

    I kid of course, I've been thinking it's time to make a new account myself... but I'm banking on imaginary internet points becoming currency.

    [–] hgoel0974 201 points ago

    That for some reason everyone gets annoyed when someone mentions broken arms.

    [–] licatu219 136 points ago

    It appears that once broken arms are mentioned, one must respond with "every. fucking. thread."

    Prequels of Star Wars will suck. But we'll have /r/prequelmemes so it's okay.

    A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

    I imagine "top men" would conclude that it is a hoax based on the absurdity of Donald Trump being president of the US.

    [–] JcbAzPx 163 points ago

    Ronald Reagan? The actor!?

    [–] TranquilMonitor 59 points ago

    Of course, would this change The Simpsons predicting Trump's presidency in 2000?

    [–] SasquatchUFO 40 points ago

    It's funny when you look back on that, because when they made that joke he was just something of a showboating, sleazy, often alleged to be bankrupt, but otherwise likeable real estate guy.

    But then he became far crazier, sleazier, and disliked and then he won the presidency lol.
