This is a discussion on He's Dead! within the General Discussions forums, part of the Community Boards category; BBC News - Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden dead - Barack Obama...
yeah, and the meme machines are loving it
Osama Bin Laden really shouldn't have used his real address on PSN.
This was on my morning coffee and I loved it. Definitely the type of news that can make the day.
But I hope this doesn't give Obama a mandate to keep screwing with the American economy. His grace period has long gone.
And in case anyone is wondering... It's none of my business, and yet it is. When American economy (as well as financial institutions) can have such an impact on the world economy, don't be offended if it becomes anyone's business. Definitely it's Americans the one needing to solve their current gigantic problem, but don't expect everyone else to sit tight and not have an opinion on foreign domestic policies, or even criticize them strongly. I'm just adding this little disclaimer because... well, it was the sort of disclaimer I should have had at the beginning of a huge discussion I had with an American friend over this weekend that ended up with me getting a black eye (literally).

Probably Obama will be required to produce Bin Laden's birth certificate now.
So... like the birthers we are now going to have deathers out there?

probably, they already dumped his body into the sea, seems like they're just trolling conspiracy nuts at this point
So Osama has finally bin Laden to rest
Yeah, sorry, have my almost finished ripoff of Truly Madly Deeply as consolation

I doubt he was really buried at sea. I have an image of him being boxed up and stored in that big room under the Pentagon (as per the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark). His remains will probably spend the rest of civilisation there along with the the jar that contains Hitler's missing testicle, the treasure of Atlantis and Obama's real birth certificate
....the conspiracy theories are getting more and more interesting....!
RIP Osama Bin Laden, world Hide and Seek Champion.
