Current Mood: unhappy
33 dead, 700 wounded.

It is officially on.

Not that it wasn't on before.

But it is most certainly on now.


The British seem to be taking it better than we took 9/11. In stark contrast to the deluge of shitty twin-towers-raping-Osama Flash animations that popped up in everyone's inboxes after the second tower fell, the responses of British Internetfolk are largely good-natured. b3ta's largely British contributorship was encouragingly indifferent to the tragedy, acknowledging it with only the occasional worried comment or tasteless photoshopped image, and went on photoshopping kittens. Says London-based member mongychops:

i'm fine
but i hate the fact you get up in the morning, pay a fortune to work in a city that costs the earth, earning just enough to live on, and some nober with different religious views wants to launch your arsehole through your brain


TERRORISTS, YOU FAIL.

YOU FAIL AT TERRORISM.

YOU FAIL AT LIFE.

GO HOME.

GO HOME AND CRY.

LOSERS.

The board has been getting some tasteless, unfunny images (in contrast to tasteless, funny images, of which there are many), but no more than usual. And a quick profile check shows that most of them are made by Americans.

Best image of the bunch. I love this one. It's so wonderfully subtle.

Hope Ching-shih is okay.

You know, it's funny, but I feel exactly the same way.

Which is kind of odd, dontcha think?

Attack New York: Bewilderment/fear/reactionary anger
Attack Madrid: Horror/sadness
Attack London: Oh, you've done it now!
