Where were you when...

Recommended Posts

State any events that happened which you distinctly remember when and where you were at the time.When the twin towers blew up I only found out when I got home from school, the whole fam was around the TV jaws wide open, but I needed a piss and had to breeze through quicktime. My mum was telling me to stay and watch so I peeped through the door and saw some building on fire and though 'pfffft any sh*t film' went upstairs to bang out GTA.Next day at school when everyone was on about it I was BAFFFFFED.Also I remember going on holiday to portugal the day LOTM came out... I bought it but couldnt watch the DVD til i got back.. But I DID bring the CD and my stereo. And one of the tracks was FWD riddim. 1st time I heard it. Me & my cousin was shackin out in the villa. It werent couple months after that til it caught on proper.

When Princess Diana died I was 10 years old. I had just come back from Canada and my body clock was messed up. I came downstairs at around 4/5 am to play Snowboard Kids on the Nintendo 64. I got bored after a while so I switched to Nickelodeon. There was a scrolling message saying something like "Turn over to Sky News for a very important announcement", and that's how I found out.

LOL I remember 7/7 I was on a 6th form induction trip to oxford... One girl mustav started BAAAALLLIN uncontrollably shaking and all sorts. Took 5 mins to get any information from her. When she came round she said her mum phoned her telling her all of london got blown up. Then she called her back and it turned out to be every tube station in london. Werent til couple hours later that we found out the truth.

They closed it and told everyone there was a fire.Then went back up the building and they bought a TV up, watched it on TV. Went to get a McD's and walked past the road that was blocked offWent back went white and nearly fainted.
