Where were YOU when you heard the news?

Everybody is saying"everyone will remember where they were when they heard Bin Laden was killed". Where were you?

I was asleep when it was announced. But seriously, I woke up, and started reading this thread. Then went to some news sites to know if this was true or not.

I heard about it through Facebook as well.

The last ten years have been about finding this man. The next ten will be about finding the man who replaces him, most likely. As wonderful as this symbolic victory may be, it's nothing more than that - symbolic. Unfortunately, this isn't anywhere close to being over.

I was actually flipping channels on the TV at home. Happen to stop on Celebrity Apprentice for a couple of seconds at the ending to see who Trump going to fire when NBC cut in saying Obama had important news on Bin Laden. I called my mother to turn on the TV and did the same thing on Skype to the posse.

Just goes to show nobody messes with Obama and gets away with it, be it an international terrorist or a loudmouth with a bad rug.

I was actually at work getting ready to start my day by checking my emails when I noticed the news blurplet on my Yahoo page. I remember actually staring at the headline and all I said was "oh." Mostly I had the sarcastic thought that he was already dead and it was only now that they decided to bring it up...much like the capture of Saddaam Hussien.

I was on the computer when mimartin said, "Go turn on the TV!!" I went and turned on the TV, and said to my hubby, "Holy crap! He's really dead!" Then we watched Obama speak. Catch it on Youtube--Obama did a very nice job.

Oh, and it was reported on German TV that the Maquis (of Star Trek fame), took out Bin Laden. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20...CmoreStories.0

You'd think the batleths would have given it away if the giant "Maquis" in the title hadn't.
