The 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks is quickly approaching. I've been wondering how Sporcle could remember the day respectfully. That is, how a trivia website can avoid trivializing something so serious and sad. It's my hope (as the note at the top says) that these images can remind us of the magnificent structures that once stood there, the loss of life inherent in their destruction and the unity we felt after September 11, 2001.

I couldn't even play this because of the fact that I had to look at those images. What makes a man want to fly a plane into a building full of innocent people, who have families? It's just horrific.

@Dumble- The power of hate is truly incredible. I readily acknowledge, however, the nerve I may have touched with this quiz. As I hope the note above demonstrates, I mean no disrespect to those who suffered loss- quite the opposite actually. But as an American (a fellow Ohioan, in fact), I still cannot watch any coverage of that day without becoming emotional and had to dry my eyes more than once while putting this quiz together.

Technical note- I am aware that the images are scrolling in reverse order. I have actually gone onto photobucket and reversed the images and it STILL runs in the wrong order. I'm working on figuring out why, but so far, no luck. You can manually run them the other way, or simply answer them from 28 to 1. My apologies and hopefully I'll be able to figure out why it's doing that.

A technical note: The Globe and Mail calls itself "Canada's National Newspaper" and thus should not be affiliated to a specific city. While their headquarters is in Toronto, the paper is published across the country, much like USA Today, but with less color and a longer history.

@rockgolf- That's probably my Buffalo bias coming into play. I always heard it referred to as the 'Toronto Globe and Mail' I tried to find the Star's headline from that day but was unable to. I'm going to replace it with a different international edition.
Aug 22nd, 2011 at 23:58 GMT
Wow, this quiz was more than just spine chilling, literally my entire body shook as i was looking at these images.
Aug 23rd, 2011 at 00:20 GMT
I have replaced the Globe and Mail and attempted, yet again, to get the slide show to run forward and not in reverse. However, a little research has revealed that one of the complaints about Photobucket is that no matter what order you put the images in the slideshow runs them from newest to oldest. I will, therefore, be renumbering all the photos and changing the order of the answers on the quiz to match the order that Photobucket is forcing on me. While I'm doing that, the order may be a bit wonky. Thanks for bearing with me.

i didnt know you could say bastard in the newpapers.
Aug 23rd, 2011 at 14:07 GMT
@stpgnrvr- Certain events provide allowances for things that might otherwise be frowned upon.
Aug 23rd, 2011 at 20:15 GMT
^Though im not sure "BASTARDS" would make the best headline. In an event so horrific and shocking, a persons first emotional reaction would be concern and condolence for the people involved in the tragedy, not anger toward the ones that caused it.

Hejman: I might be wrong, but I think TORONTO got me the Rio newspaper.

wow get over 9 11 it wasnt that bad..

@TonyPlush2- There are 2,977 families that would beg to differ. 3,051 children who will never know the embrace of a parent. 1,609 people who lost a spouse. Your comment is really quite shameful.

You should have included the Washington Post. Remember that there were two cities attacked on September 11.
Sep 8th, 2011 at 23:26 GMT
@gowhere- The source site is down at the moment so I can't check but my recollection is that the Post was not available or I would have included it.
