Here's another coincidence in the long lists of coincidences. I found these originally by Reddit [ http://reddit.com/info/64pof/comments/ ]. Look at the comment by kirun.

Which lead me to a forums on snopes about it. [ http://msgboard.snopes.com/message/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/89/t/000823/p/1.html ]. They quoted a conversation on google groups.

Yes I noticed this with some irony as I have the desktop calendar at work.

I forgot to post here but I did think about it.

The strip from the 11th is where the boss goes on a flight and his secretary
tells him to turn on his laptop during landing - he comments that he thought
you should turn it off - and she says "how else would they transfer control
to you if they lost it" - in the final panel the plane is plummeting and the
pilot is shouting "turn that ^$()"_@&* laptop off" and the boss is replying
"no way - I've got to land this baby - can i do it in excel?"

Hilarious, but unfortunately too symbolic on the day.

I had actually forgotten to turn my calendar over on the day and forgot due
to the events - the next day I turned 2 and noticed the storyline, which
runs for 4 days and involves the workers celebrating their boss' supposed
demise on the plane, but him turning up days later with only "minor hair
injuries", having been saved by nuns.

I always turn to Dilbert cartoons and other humour at times like this to
ease my mind of the distressing images and thoughts for the future, so I am
not reading anything into the coincedence, only thinking of the irony.



Anyway, I would love to see the original image. It was scrubbed from snopes and from the original Usenet post from where it came. It was also purged from the wayback machine and google images.

Am I the first to report it here? And where are we to put this in the long series of coincidences of 9/11?
