    I always thought the ol’ cook was quite a pessimist, although he ended up being right.

    Yes of course, the Japan Tsunami was a terrible thing as well. The 2004 Tsunami was so horrific I'm still trying to process that day all these years later. Almost 300k dead, unimaginable. Many of the victims were never found because they were dragged out to sea. :eek:

    I watched the towers go down, that's one memory I'd love to erase.

    Had a friend who was supposed to be on guard duty at the towers that day, but his mum got in an accident so his mate took the shift for him... to this day he still feels guilty that he didn't go to work.

    He shouldn't, he didn't know anything like that would happen.

    I live really close to where the towers were, I miss seeing them, everything changed since then.

    I watched the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster live at school. Shit was crazy.
    Invasion of Panama
    First Gulf War was weird for me because I wasn't sure if Iraq could attack us at home so I was kinda worried.
    Of course 9/11
