The media here in Australia is going out of their way to sell news by starting the 9/11 anniversay a day early. Very annoying. Since it’s a ‘9/11 anniversary’ according to the US, it should be remembered according to the US timing. Here in Australia it happened on ‘9/12’, or as we say here in Australia, 12th September… We’re one day ahead of the US.
So the only reason I can see for this ridiculous remembrance is to sell news for an extra day. Not only will they be selling news about 9/11 today, even though they’re a day early here, but they’ll be doing it again tomorrow, when the US remembers it…
And in the process, people are talking to me here about how 9/11 happened today, “some years ago”. No, it didn’t. It happened tomorrow, and it was 6 years ago. Not 5 years, not 4 years, but 6. How hard is it to remember it happened in 2001, and that it’s simple maths to work out how many years that is!
