I caused it to collapse. I was sitting in biology class my freshman year oh high school on 9/11/01. I had just heard the news and was afraid that my dad might have been killed in the Pentagon. So I used my super powers to bring down building #7. I was so distraught it just happened. Go watch stranger things on netflix for more examples of my powers.

/sarcasm mostly, but it really was me. :P

Are you trying to compare WTC 1 and 2 collapsing to an earthquake? Then tell me why Building 7 didn't collapse until more than 6 hours after your earthquakes happened.

Is this even a serious conversation?

7 WTC was struck by the remains of 1 WTC when it came down. I watched it happen. This damaged the structure and also set it on fire.

When a highly-stressed steel structure burns for 8 hours, it weakens. Eventually, gravity wins. No conspiracy required.

The NIST report says only one beam failed in WTC 7. I don't see how the whole building could fall from that.

Are you a structural engineer? I know nothing about building buildings, but apparently one failed beam can bring down the building, as it did happen, and Joe P watched it.

then certainly it wasn't a controlled explosion... since only one beam failed.

I had a conversation with a mentally ill transient over the weekend that made more sense.

I think what we should do to test it, is send an airplane into another building and see what happens.


where's mythbusters when you really need them?

The point of the video is that heat causes metal to lose strength. It does not matter what is burning to cause the heat, just that it will weaken metal. WTC 7 was on fire for HOURS before it fell. Plenty of time for the metal to heat up and weaken, then collapse.

You mean the unforeseen force like controlled demolition?

I'm not a structural engineer, nor am I a demolition expert however the structural engineers, architects, demolition experts, scientists, core engineers etc have done simulations on the entire thing. They say it was controlled demolition. Watch the video for more information if you want. Matter of fact all the evidence collected points it to it being an inside job. The fact that NIST conveniently ignored evidence like testing for explosives and thermite is just another nail in the coffin. Fact is that there was a a molten pool of iron at ground zero in a closed area. The official report said that steel melted in the basement was due to a boiler explosion. You know how steel melts in a closed off area with no oxygen? Thermite.

If you actually care to see evidence. If you already have made up your mind, then don't click.

Have you ever worked for a gov't agency? They are inefficient, wasteful and cost way more than anything in the private sector.

Do you really think that some gov't agency could pull off something so complex without huge cost overruns and leaks?

If someone tries to leak it, would you believe him?

Considering you posted that less than 15 minutes after I posted a 15 minute video... no you didn't.
