    First plane: 11th grade Algebra 2 taking a test. I didnt know till I went to my next class which was Physics which was taught by a former Air Force pilot. We watched the 2nd plane hit and the towers crumble. Still remember the seat I was sitting in while I watched.

    Sophomore year of High School in Cell Biology. Some teacher came into the room and whispered something to my teacher. He wheeled a tv into the classroom/lab and turned it on. Watched the news in the rest of my classes.

    Coming back from a morning jog in Minneapolis. My wife had the television on right after the second plane hit when I got back. My office was in the tallest building in Minneapolis then, and by the time I made it to work, they shut all of the downtown buildings down for fear that they were targets. I remember taking our receptionist home, as she normally rode the bus and was pretty upset.

    4th fucking grade? Damn. I was in 5th grade when the space shuttle Challenger exploded. :old::feelsbadman:

    First year of college, geology class. Heard something was wrong from the prof, then went back to my dorm. Roommate, who normally had ESPN on 24/7 was watching news channels, so I knew something was wrong. Then saw second hit. I'll never forget.

    7th grade, we had the day off for some reason. I remember that 9/11 was a Tuesday.

    I was playing an F1 game on my N64 that morning, and turned it off to see Tower 1 burning. Ran upstairs to yell at my sister for not telling me what was going on and saw the plane hit Tower 2.

    8th Grade English class. We had been watching a movie the previous day in class, and our teacher told us we were going to watch the news instead, and that her lesson plan was such that we wouldn't be able to finish the movie at all. Two kids bitched up a storm, and the teacher said "alright let's vote." The class voted to watch the movie over the news by 1 vote. A minute after starting the movie, the teacher paused it and said "alright, if you want to go watch the news, go with Sarah (student teacher) to the room down the hall." Myself and about 10-12 other kids left the room to go watch the news in one of the History teacher's rooms, where we saw both towers fall. Last Christmas I attended a half-assed high school reunion at a sports bar and grill, and several kids from that class were there. The ones who voted for the movie said it was among the bigger regrets they've ever had.

    edit: technically heard about it on the bus ride to school, and saw the second plane hit right when I walked into class

    11th Grade Russian, 1st Period. Senor Golovko (he was called Senor because he also taught Spanish. Dude was the shit.) Mr. Ramirez came into our class and told Golovko to turn on the TV, because we were under attack. We turned on the Today show, and about a minute in, the second plane hit. Then I went to AP US History, and our teacher tried to make us do a Document Based Question essay. I said "Do you really expect us to concentrate when this is most likely the most historic day since Pearl Harbor?" She let us turn the TV back on after that.

    In 7th grade walking from band to social studies and this annoying kid I knew ran by and said the Pentagon had been bombed, and knowing him like I did I called BS, and then I got to class and the TV was on and the north tower had just been hit. Watched the south tower collapse as the class was taking a break and going to get water/bathroom and I was waiting to leave the room. Then my next class was algebra or something and the damn teacher made us actually have class rather than watch the news. I was so mad, partially because I hated math.

    also this thread will do well to date some of us. example I had no idea dinkle was 3 years younger than me.

    9/11/01 is our generations remember when. Every generation pretty much has somethign like this, the baby boomers had JFK being shot, the generation before them had pearl harbor. Eventually our children will have something as well. I don't think anyone will ever forget where they were when they got the news.

    I was driving to work at the time of the first plane hit. I was listening to a local sports radio show (Chicago) and they were making a light joke of it saying "how does a pilot hit a building" and "that guy had to be drunk". Then the 2nd plane hit and they both got really quiet and said "no way this is an accident" and the tone became serious. The news of the 2nd plane hitting came right when I pulled up to my parking space and was about to turn the car off. I sat in the car for about 20 minutes and I then turned off sports talk radio and turned on one of the news channels.

    I then went in to work and I sat in my bosses office, she had a tv in her office. Until about noon I sat in the office with her and 3 other insurance agents and we watched. Then we had some warnings that an attack might be coming to Chicago and that is when we became worried and we closed up shop early and went home to spend time with our loved ones.

    8th grade home room/ 1st period. Was suppose to take a test and for the rest of the day we were there we watched the TVs. Had a girl in my class who had a family member that worked at the WTC. I remember her balling her eyes out and the teacher/coach walked her up to the office where she called and found out that her family member didn't go in that day. :americafuckyeah:

    Junior year of college. I was woken up by a call from my mom saying that she was alright and to turn on the TV. She was supposed to fly out of Logan about 30 minutes after the first tower got hit. I didn't know the time she was supposed to leave so I'm obviously glad she called. Ran down stairs and woke up a couple roommates and stayed glued to the TV.

    Senior year of college, had a morning computer graphics class. Saw the story of the first tower on the internet before class began. Didn't know the rest till I got back to the house. Pretty much spent the rest of the day glued to the TV.

    A lot of you guys are making me feel old as shit.

    8th grade. Stayed home from school cause I was "sick" (read: I didn't want to go). Was watching TV and it got interrupted about the fire at the 1st tower and kept watching and watched the 2nd plane hit. Watched the news all day. Remember all the details of that day very vividly.

    I was pulling up to work and happened to turn on the radio. They were announcing that a second plane had just hit. I immediately get a call from a friend at work, he says go get your portable tv and get back up here.

    When I get back and go in, it is a mad house. Our company was fairly small (150 employees) but we had three branch offices: Lexington, Los Angeles, and New York. We had people flying in and out of those branches all the time and all over the country. So of course we had people flying out of NY that day and they couldn't be reached. It took a while because of the lines getting tied up with all the calls but they were fine, their flights had been later in the morning.

    We had my tv setup in my office, there were 5 of us watching, the president of our company comes in and watches for a minute and then says you should move this to the conference room so more people can see. No work was done that day.
