Re: The 9/11 Conspiracy
Jet Fuel is EXTREMELY flamable, it is said that the hottest flame is a flame that with no colour, this flame is usually associated with jet fuel / nitrogen and other fuels of a similar nature.
You hit a steel plate with a sledge hammer it will dent and buckle, you probably know all this but let me refresh you on it.
all objects have a "memory" this memory varies in different materials, for example, if you grab a strip of rubber and bend it over, it will fling back to its original position (or near on) unassisted, if you grab a length of steel and bend it over the same as the rubber it will stay in the position you bended it to and therefore it's original memory is lost...
now putting both my examples from above into the realistic scenario of the towers:
The plane represents the "hammer" and the tower represents the "steel", the velocity the "hammer" is traveling at is enough to push the "steel" beyond it's original memory, and pushing it to the point of break, quite simply the size of the plane and the width and thickness of the support beams also play a factor in the towers demise.
Like I said if you hit a steel plate with a sledge hammer it will dent, but if you where to scale the plane and support beam down to that of the a sledge hammer and steel it would be easy to identify the plane as the "sledge hammer" once again and the tower as a length of 6mm rod, From personal experience I know that you can snap 6mm rod with strikes from a hammer, you may argue it takes several strike to break that rod but again we are talking about a plane traveling at the speed it was which would clearly generate force 100x + that of a person swinging a hammer. making easy work of a 14" thick beam.
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
