Paranoia Will Destroy Ya’

Today with my adult conversation class we talked about the recent crash-landing in San Francisco of a 777 out of Seoul.  Pretty straightforward discussion, until the topic turned to 9/11.

If my adult students are a representative example, it would seem that many South Koreans are full-blown 9/11 Truthers (i.e., the World Trade Center was brought down by planted explosives, not the actual jet impacts).

I mean, I got grilled — “How can you trust your government so much?”

Well, I don’t actually but for fuck’s sake ramming two jets loaded with fuel into buildings does tend to cause things like fire and excessive heat and eventual structural collapse.

Strange.  I always try to pick topics that keep us away from politics but sometimes it can’t be avoided.
