Oh fucking god I just watched that video of that jumper hitting the fence.
Never once thought I could be so utterly frightened of a sound. It almost sounded like a hammer hitting an anvil, except you know that's not a hammer hitting an anvil, it's a human body hitting steel at insane velocities. Holy shit
I used to make jokes about 9/11. I can't believe I did after seeing these pictures. Fuck, fuck, fuck.
Seeing these pictures and videos makes it a whole lot more real than seeing it on the news.
Also about that video, the way the mistified blood spreads out, it looks like body parts were bound to turn into a projectile all over the plaza. I'm not surprised if it hit someone...
Whoever posted the pictures, please post more.
I know it's not a photo.
I'm very interested in 9/11 and especially in the photos or video taken from within the structures that day, it just gives me a very odd feeling seeing something once so full of life right before it was gone forever.
Since we're on the topic of the jumpers, this part of a longer documentary should be of somewhat interest.
Yes, it's not exactly a dignified sentence that's paying respect to those who died and all, but god damn I really don't feel like eating my ham sandwich after seeing those pictures of the Jumpers.
Sknyliv air show disaster July 27, 2002. 77 onlookers were killed, including 19 children....
God damn, the pilot ejected at literally the last possible moment by the looks of it. Poor guy.

Not particularly shaking but it's one of those popular pictures of the conflict.

It's odd. These pictures are rarely seen and most of them haven't been released until just recently. There are more video and images of the Jumpers that have yet to see the light of day, and other victims like the burn victims from the lobby's and impact zones. The Media has a bunch but never released them, as does the NYPD, NYFD, FBI and so on. It was decided that if these images and videos were shown immediately after 9-11 there would be mobs of people lynching Muslims in the streets.
For example if you look at some of the pictures I posted back with Ten Truck in them. You'll see two CCTV cameras on the wall below the Marriot. The entire WTC complex had them everywhere and they filmed Jumpers landing. Like, actually landing RIGHT INFRONT of them. The footage was actually recovered from the wreckage, but was never released because they were afraid it'd "dehumanize" the victims.
But I feel the opposite. I think that hiding these things away dehumanizes them. Because now the only documentation of that day the general public sees are two planes hitting two towers and two towers falling to the ground. With the exception of a Jumper picture or video here or there of them just falling that's it. It might as well be a movie because you don't see any victims so there might as well not even be any in their minds. With pictures like these it helps you form a picture of that day, and the people involved.
So, since someone asked I'll post a bit more. This is only a small portion of it, like I said I have hundreds of articles, stories, photos and videos.
I'm going to bring attention to this stage. Right between the North and South Tower in the Plaza. You'll see a lot of holes in the canopy which was made out of a plastic tarp. Those are all from Jumpers, if you look closely you can see some remains but these images are taken at a distance so it may be hard to tell.
(There are some remains in the middle of the stage you should be able to see pretty clearly however)
This is video taken from the Millenium Hilton across from the WTC taken my Tami Michaels, it was used as evidence during one of the hijackers trials.
6:35 - Jumper falls and the camera pans to follow. You'll see the bodies in the plaza and blood splattered on the windows. This was where that still I posted before was taken. He focuses on that area for about a minute.
14:37 - Jumper falls and hits the canopy, punctures a hole and the body hits the stage. You can also see that part of the Jumper's body breaks off and rolls down the roof after the impact.
This is the same stage, only this time being used as Government evidence during the trials.
If you look at the top left right infront of the Marriot you can see a blood pool from another Jumper.
I also have a gif of the before and after of the stage. (There are three images in it)
And a gif of the Plaza.
The gifs help because it really shows you how much damage the Jumpers were doing and how graphic the scene was getting. The picture of the Jumpers infront of the lobby windows in the Plaza was taken very early. Right before the South Tower collapsed there were about seventy bodies outside those windows which at this point were running red with blood but in the pictures you see there are around six or so.
i just remember leaving my dads offices and hearing the banging echoing through 4-5 blocks away, and wondering what it was i though it was metal exploding at the time but it was only 12. I also remember walking toward the towers with my dad, and getting close to them.... .and seeing just so much, that video of when that jumper hits the roof of the building next door i think i saw that happen, and what you cant see in the video, is when that poor soul hit a bunch of gravel or whatever flew up into the air and over the sides of the building, i have a ton of memories of that day, and if anyone is interested i can write them up and post them here, it gets a bit hard to talk about sometimes though.
I wasn't there. I just have a really odd obsession, I don't think they should censor history especially when it's one of the biggest events in American history. I do live in New York though and I remember when the towers existed, what happened afterwards like the National Guard being posted at all the bridges and those sorts of things.
I was able to find 102 Minutes That Changed America on Youtube and the part I was referring to. At 53:54 is around the same time the other video I posted starts where that Jumper hit the railing. If you watch they censor it and drown out the 'bang'
Well as i said earlier, it started out in going with my dad to his offices, he needed to get some stuff for work done before my doctors appointment,
My dad was working on his computer and i was sitting with his work partner Peter who was showing me the "pipe" screensavers that windows computers had, i remember really vividly just watching and being really fascinated by the colors and all that, and as he is showing me the different types, pipes, the flying windows logo ect.. Jordan my dads secretary calls over the phones on all lines and says " *my dads name and several other coworkers* get over here, a plane just hit one of the world trade centers.
I remember my dad running to get me and we both went over to the other side of the offices, and watched the smoke start billowing out, people were talking "was it an accident?" and "it was flying so low" and after a few minutes of crazed talk and "oh my god" the second plane hit, I can still see it, flying in and watching the wings bend into the building and the whole plane dissipated into a cloud of dust and derbies that fell down to the ground. And that's when people started flipping out, my dad called my mom from his office phone, my little brother was in daycare, (we lived in Tenafly NJ at this time) she went and got him and took him home. I was deeply confused about what was going on and was on the verge of panic. After that it was decided that we should so go wait in the parking garage and try to wait there unless there were more "attacks"
I have to run for a bit now, ill post more when i get back, it gets pretty hard at times so please excuse me if it takes a while to post.
First image from the lunar surface, from the Soviet unmanned Luna 9 probe. This was important because at the time no one knew whether solid objects could stand on the moon, or if they would sink into the accumulated dust of millenia.
First image from the Martian surface, from the unmanned Soviet Mars 3 probe. You can't see much though.

When looking through the thread I didn't even react at the pictures and stories of the 9/11 Jumpers. This bit made my eyes go damp though. what the shit is wrong with me
Does this need an introduction?
Would it be possible to upload all of your 9/11 Photos? I´ve to admit, they´re very interesting.
These are pictures you don´t see in the media. Thank you :).
Yea, they're watching the Bin Laden snuff film they won't show us. I think it's a good way to shut up the conspiracy theorists
Resized version of one of the most detailed full color pictures of the martian surface, from the Spirit rover.
On June 21st, 1919, labourers gather outside Winnpeg's City Hall to protest low wages and poor working conditions. That afternoon, the strikers are read the Riot Act.
Failing to disperse, a mounted charge by the Royal Northwest Mounted Police followed, resulting in the deaths of two strikers. Among the arrested that day was J.S. Woodsworth, who would go on to found the Co-operative COmmonweath Federation, the for-runner of the New Democratic Party.
Watching from his roof was a young Tommy Douglas, who would one day bring about the transformation of the CCF into the NDP.
