Here’s another fun article, this time, peer-reviewed.
Of all the blitheringly idiotic crap I’ve seen on the Internet, the conspiracy theory behind the 9/11 collapse of the World Trade Center twin towers takes the cake, followed closely by so-called, “chemtrails.”
“What really happened” is simple: Two aircraft were intentionally driven into the sides of each tower at a high velocity, severing and severely weakening the exterior steel support structure. The resulting fires, easily exceeding 800 deg C, were some 300 deg C hotter than the 50% weakening point of the remaining steel structure. The failure of those beams caused the entire floor to collapse. The resulting impact vastly exceeded the design strength of the building, so subsequent floors continued collapsed one after another, domino style, until the entire tower had collapsed. The same thing happened to the other tower a short time later.
For those of you who don’t understand that steel doesn’t need to get anywhere near its melting point in order to become very weak, if not “limp as a noodle,” please watch the following video recorded by a blacksmith, an expert in metalworking:
Here’s another outstanding resource. The gentlemen behind this 7-part series of videos clearly understands the underlying physics. Meanwhile, batshit lady and the other conspiracy theorists keep repeating the dogma, the conspiratorial mantra. The video at 6:15 is particularly telling.
Bottom line, people, as the blacksmith correctly noted, “if you hold this up as part of the conspiracy, you are an idiot.” I would argue the same applies to all of the 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Absolutely none of them stand up to even routine scrutiny by experts who actually know what they’re doing (as opposed to the couple thousand idiots who signed up for that website).
Have a nice day. 🙂
