Explain To Me In Your Own Words How You Think The WTC Buildings Collapsed

Planes hit them, and they collapsed..

Planes hit them, and they collapsed.

That's clearly a deliberately vague oversimplification because you know as well as I do that you don't want to have a conversation about the physics. Let's try adding a little bit more detail.

1) The planes weighed 197 tons each (if they were fully loaded).

2) The buildings weighed 500,000 tons each.

3) The planes impacted the buildings significantly above their relative centres of gravity (in the case of the north tower the bottom 85 percent of the building was untouched).

The plane impacts should have caused a bullet effect, not a sledgehammer effect. Indeed, the late Frank DeMartini, Construction Manager at the WTC outlined this poignantly:-

"I believe that each [of the twin towers] probably could sustain multiple impacts by airliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting of your screen door... And the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing [it]. It really does nothing to the screen netting."

I have suspected that 9/11 was an inside job for a good 5 years now. I feel bad that I attacked you for this even though I secretly agreed with you.

Hey, that is no problem. If I persuaded you then that is worth any amount of insults you might have thrown at me. My duty is always first and foremost to the truth. Lies really bug the shit out of me.

Oklahoma City Bombing

9 story building-

Before

After

https://bento.cdn.pbs.org/hostedbento-prod/blog/20170207163453832322oklahomacityblog.jpeg

The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars,[4][5] causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage.

The bomb was made from bags of fertilizer from Mid-Kansas Coop.

To be honest, I think it is absolutely bizarre that the discourse surrounding 9/11 ever needed to reach a discussion about physics in the first place. One only needs a pair of eyes. Watch the video below (it's a side-by-side comparison of WTC 7 collapsing next to three confirmed controlled demolitions) and it becomes pretty clear we are talking about an example of The Emperor Has No Clothes.

No one asked for your idiotic opinion you filthy little mongoose cunt. You literally don't know anything about rap whatsoever whereas I specialize in it so this is basically the equivalent of a drunk hillbilly who dropped out of preschool criticizing Einstein's theories and calling them "hopeless"

You “specialise “ in rap 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 You’re fucking hopeless at rap you thick fuck .

Here you go with 9/11 again wait for it folks as Nom chants his mantra “ Buh , buh metal cannot melt “ 😂😂😂🤪🤪

Buh , buh metal cannot melt

It is a fact that jet fuel does not burn at a high enough temperature to melt steel. It is not a fact that I have ever claimed metal cannot melt. That's the opposite of a fact.

You are simply hopeless at trolling. You don't seem to understand that trolling requires a small degree of intelligence which spamming emoticons can't replace.

I have launched my own investigation into these events(I have to write a report in English arguing a point of view). If y’all could send me any sites, files, and documents related to the collapse of these buildings, that would be great.

American_boy, try this:-

https://benthamopen.com/contents/pdf/TOCPJ/TOCPJ-2-7.pdf

This is a scientifically peer-reviewed study of the composition of the WTC dust, principally authored by a chemist from the University of Copenhagen called Professor Niels Harrit.

Harrit finds "high energy thermitic material" in five out of five samples of WTC dust (he doesn't include the fifth sample in the study because the person who sent it to him refused to have their personal details published). This is consistent with the sulphur found in and around the WTC steel when Professor Jonathan Barnett performed his metallurgy analysis for FEMA, because when you add either sulphur or barium nitrate to thermite it forms a considerably more potent compound called thermate.

The military has used thermate for decades and it has many applications, such as cutting through tank armour and incendiary grenades. However, most importantly it can also be used in demolitions if the structure being brought down is made of metal.

The first such demolition occurred in 1935 when the Eastern Sky Ride Tower in Chicago was brought down. It is absolutely useless for demolitions in most instances because most buildings aren't constructed predominantly from metal, but it saves a massive amount of time, effort and the inconvenience of having to use conventional explosives if the building has a metal structure. It can be used to cut through the core supports and induce a gravity driven collapse.

@American boy

Read this article which the user quantumhead posted. It's very thought provoking.

The impact of the first plane shifted the foundation below. The impact of the second plane shifted the foundation below even more. And that is all after a patchwork job done after the bombing in 1992. The patchwork building fell after 2 foundation shifts. The second building fell after 2 foundation shifts, and a third foundation shift from the first building's collapse.

Using ANTIFA's definitions, far right, Islamic Fascists did it by flying planes into the buildings.

Gravity

That's right. Now explain to us why gravity wasn't being resisted by its opposing force (i.e. the accumulative structural resistance of 93 floors of concrete and steel). You will have considerable difficulty doing this,, which is presumably why you are attempting to pretend that gravity was the only force acting on the buildings. Were this the case, then the buildings could obviously never have stood upright in the first place.

What idiots like you seem to have so much trouble grasping, is that acceleration is supposed to slow down when it encounters resistance. It is not supposed to speed up. This is true of gravity or indeed any mechanism of acceleration. If you don't believe me then go drive your car into a wall. Come back and tell us if you sped up or slowed down. Thanks.
