That's not a kickass fact at all!
They had to do that because hundreds of people died.

Just because there are worse tragedies doesn't make the original one worthless.

If this is true, which I doubt it is.

That is the very opposite of a kickass fact, that is a sad ass fact.

Oh for ***** sake, not only this sounds like a total bull, but again with the 9/11 faggotry. That's like the last thing in human history you should "never forget", or at least remember the unquestionably doubtful background of this whole thing. But no because dem 'feels'... **** you, I'll give you something to remember, which a lot of you might not even know:

"A need for new mass murder techniques was also expressed by Hans Frank, governor of the General Government, who noted that this many people could not be simply shot. "We shall have to take steps, however, designed in some way to eliminate them." It was this problem which led the SS to experiment with large-scale killings using poison gas. Christian Wirth seems to have been the inventor of the gas chamber."
"Johann Kremer, an SS doctor who oversaw the gassings, testified that: "Shouting and screaming of the victims could be heard through the opening and it was clear that they fought for their lives." When they were removed, if the chamber had been very congested, as they often were, the victims were found half-squatting, their skin colored pink with red and green spots, some foaming at the mouth or bleeding from the ears."

Sounds real now? It's not just "oh there were those nazis at some point and they killed like tens of millions of people with gas". And I'll give you another thing:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witold_Pilecki
This guy, volunteered to get imprisoned in Auschwitz for the resistance, for 3 ******* years, get all the information resistance needed, and then escaped. I've read a book based on his memories from that time, that is something I'll never forget. This is the real hero.

It's been only ~70 years, that's just one lifetime, scary isn't it? You shouldn't just move on from such inhumanity, like it doesn't matter anymore.

Okay, apparently this is actually somewhat true. One of the trainers I've worked with was the kennel manager for the NYPD at the time of 9/11, and we used this tactic on long searches occasionally, and it's not even an unusual thing.

Our dogs are trained to handle the search like a game; tracking dogs are basically trained by playing hide-and-seek, and with detection/area search dogs we use toys, play time and lures as a reward for finding an article or identifying a target scent. On long searches, dogs can quickly lose morale because they aren't being rewarded, and some animals with low drive can become confused because they're not sure if they're doing what you're asking and stop working. You can't reward them for just searching or tracking, or they think the search itself is the objective rather than the find.

Of course, there are always the champs that will hunt for hours without hesitation, even without any positive feedback, but not all dogs have that sort of work drive. One of my best human remains detection dogs is a pit bull who needs frequent positive reinforcement to stay focused on the job, but he's still one of the most reliable dogs I've got in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Those are the dogs more suited to area search and crime scenes rather than disaster relief like 9/11, but at the time they were taking all volunteers that could come quickly.

That's not a fun or kickass fact. That is a horribly depressing fact.

Well technically its not because the dogs are getting depressed, but because they get a reward when they find a body. Basically to the dogs they are just playing a fun game, and if you make the dog play the game for hours without "winning" it gets bored and doesn't want to play anymore. Its like a kid playing hide and seek, after awhile the fun wears off and you just feel like an idiot looking in sheds and under bushes if you dont find anyone.   
   
Its not like the dogs actually care about finding people or bodies, that's just what they've been trained on. Kind of like how dogs who search for drugs don't actually care about drugs, they just know finding them is the object of the game. So the handlers will hide and the dog can find them and get his toy, which gets him all pumped up again.

More ****** 9/11 feels posts, and oh look a dog, just the right ingredients for you faggots to thumb this **** up and start circlejerking. Just need a soldier and w'll have a record for thumbs

You're right. The whole 9/11 thing WAS a tragedy, really it was. Countless losses of families and friends alike, but to use it for thumbs is a pretty low blow. Now, i try to not see it as a "Hey guys look at this feely feel, give me thumbs" kinda post, but as an informative one, as to what happened that day. I thank the poster for sharing this.
