The fake 9/11 survivor

Tania Head told a tragic story of being on the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s South Tower when the hijacked jet flew into it. She was injured, but miraculously survived. A few years later, she became an eloquent advocate for survivors and president of the World Trade Center’s Survivor’s Network.

But there was one small problem. Tania Head was never there.

Next month, a new book will be published: The Woman Who Wasn’t There, by Robin Gaby Fisher and Angelo Guglielmo. Here’s an article about it:

She wasn’t there—How pathological liar Tania Head foold everyone into thinking she survived the 9/11 attacks, on NYPost.com.

Read the original expose: In a 9/11 survival tale, the pieces just don’t fit, on NYTimes.com.

    Oh my! It’s been awhile since I’ve seen anything in the sociopathy realm. Coming back to these topics after a break gives an interesting perspective, and this story just made me immediately think this woman is delusional and out of her mind.

    Then I remembered….sociopaths know what they are doing.

    The hard part is figuring out when someone is a schizophrenic and when someone is intentionally being “delusional” for some benefit.

    At first glance, I assume they are crazy, which evokes my sympathy.

    Just got reminded that I have that weakness. Good thing to keep it in check, cause this woman could have done me in, even AFTER reading this story! Here I was feeling bad for her and her confusions about reality.

    True, panther. It is interesting coming back after being away. I do, however, feel sorry for these people in that they are so empty, will never really “feel” anything toward anyone, and will live their entire life constantly trying to be someone people will actually like because they hate themselves that much and no one would be interested in the “real” person. Pretty sad existence.

    Guys, just saw your name suggestion, my friend called him TAM since he was Scottish he needed a scottish name, right? Son d had named him Chuck at birth (as in chuck roast) because at that time (birth) he was we thought probably destined to become BEEF. It is a bit easier to eat “chuck roast” than to eat Charles or Fred. LOL

    Actually working steers need a very short name…Tam is a good one actually and we may go ahead and keep that name. Buck and Bawl (meaning the sound a bovine makes, not a ball that bounces) are two traditional names for oxen that were worked in pairs.

    People who are schizophrenic as discussed above are out of touch with reality, but generally their stories don’t make a lot of sense to most folks…this woman “functioned” so she was coming up with LIES and maybe FANTASY but she was manipulating things so i think she knew exactly what she was doing. the WHY might not make any sense to us, but she got something out of it, even if it was just attention.

    Oxy
    I’m Scottish so just a few name suggestions
    Angus………..Gus
    Rhuraidh…….Rory
    Callum……….Cal
    Murdo………..Murdo
    Let me know please. :-)
    What is living history? Are you dressed for the part in your photo?

  5. Ox Drover says:

    Yea, dressed up like a peasant Scottish or Scots-Irish woman.

    I’ll talk to my son and see what he wants to do about the name, if he already recognizes “Tam” then that is probably what we will call him, if not we may change it. He has been trained for 4-5 months and already will pull a small cart. The Highland coos are quite smart, much smarter than most breeds, the dumb ones were weeded out of the gene pool! I’ll let you know and maybe I’ll post a photo of him.

    Oxy,
    Can your new ox be the honorary LF ox? We need a mascot.
    :)
    Then you can name him “Mini-me”!
    :lol:

    I say we start an ox naming thread. This is fun!

  7. Ox Drover says:

    My living history group had an ass naming contest and that is how we came up with Fat Ass and Hairy Ass. ROTFLMAO

    Part of it will depend on if he knows the name my friend has been calling him or not…if so that will have to be his call name anyway.

    He is red so he may end up being called Red. I had a Red ox before but wasn’t particularly attached to him, and lost all attachment when he kicked me—that was his death sentence. No kickers or hookers (with horns) I am the ALPHA absolutely. Can’t have anything on the farm that is bigger AND meaner than I am! LOL
