  1. I'm not going to waste my time looking at Feltzer's links, but suffice to say they will be somewhere between quite silly and pure fantasy. There is the fact that the debris from the airliners was found on each of the crash sites, thousands of people saw the airliners do what they did, the airliners that were used are now missing (apart from being a pile of parts), and hundreds of missing passengers.
  2. In this universe, however, diesel behaves pretty much the exact opposite to that. It is explosive (though hard to ignite) and burns quite hot.
  3. Godwin's Law = you lose. But seriously .... I am reminded of the phrase, "you are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts".
  4. It's not speculation, the airliner went through the middle of the building, end of story. You have, unfortunately, made up your mind that much is clear and hence it is pointless trying to convince you otherwise. You keep asking questions that have already been satisfactorily answered. You have no idea what my education level is, nor my experience, nor my interests, nor my hobbies, etc. Evan either. For example one of the things that you are quite incorrect about is that you seem to think Evan and I are Americans. I see from this you are not able to discuss the physics behind the tra
  5. Pt 2 Actually there's plenty of evidence. For example the plethora of videos showing the airliners impacting the buildings and a huge ball of flame erupting from the structure. Then the continued black smoke billowing from the towers until they collapsed. Again hundreds of videos very clearly show that is very much not the case. You'd need to show evidence of that, rather than just guessing. I don't waste too much time on it, I gave up trying to explain these things to people who have already made up their mind a long time ago. Because of that I'm not going to spend too much more t
  6. It is common sense, fortunately. Neither impact was a glancing blow, both aeroplanes hit the sides of the towers close to the centre and the damage they caused caused the central core to effectively be cut in half. That core was a very important structural member and without it there was not much to support the internal floors. The skin of the towers also bore a fair bit of the vertical and torsional loads of the structure, and again there was massive damage to that structure and the aeroplane entered one side and the debris exited the other side like a shotgun blast. The reason the second t
  7. Building 7 was very badly damaged by the collapse of the two main trade towers, hence it collapsing later on. You typically cannot see the damage to it on the conspiracy sites as they tend to not show photos of it, as it undermines their opinions. There is physically no problem at all with the way the two trade towers collapsed, they went down pretty much exactly as you would expect after sustaining such massive damage. (I have to again say that after such an impact I an very surprised they didn't come down immediately) Then there is the problem that there is precisely zero physical evidence
  8. PFT are indeed, a bunch that make up certain fictions to suit themselves. I have caught them making alternate realities many times in the past. Now while they are quite unreliable as such, the data they show should be examined for errors. The possibility of any of the airliners still flying after they crashed is of course zero, so there must be some kind of error in the times reported.
  9. Sort-of on topic, here's a list of some of the things that have gone wrong with manned missions. "One third of manned spaceflights suffer major problems that threaten completion of the mission and the life of the astronauts. Five crews - 2% of missions - have perished in their spacecraft....SPACEFLIGHT IS NOT 'ROUTINE'." http://www.astronautix.com/articles/thespace.htm
  10. A quick PMSL moment from my car forum, where this 9/11 nonsense is being talked about. There were no people rescued from the rooftops of the tower, mainly because the access doors were locked. I said that I'd get through them any way I could, fire axe, etc. Someone simply replied, "They could have used some of the explosives used to do the controlled demolition to open the doors....." Ha!
  11. Just a FWIW, here's a truck in Australia that was left behind when the big fires went through Victoria a couple of years ago. What you are looking at is the remains of all the aluminium parts in the truck after they have melted from the heat of the fires - The fires were just grass and other organic combustibles, yet it was hot enough and for long enough to melt substantial chunks of metal. Just making a point that whilst seemingly simple things like having 'X' amount of combustible material (grass, kerosene, etc) may only seem to allow for a certain amount of heat to be passed on, it can som
  12. I'm not going to go through the usual mass of poor information here, but only show the inaccuracies of the first paragraph as an example. The stick shaker does no, in fact, have anything at all do do with high-speed flight. It is actually for the exact opposite - when you are flying too slowly and the aeroplane is about to stall. The thing about the engines not being able to suck enough air is also quite wrong. Anyway, keep up the good work for discrediting the truthers, Jim, you're doing a great job of presenting easily dis-proven stuff.
  13. Kerosene - quite similar to diesel - is pretty hard to ignite. For example if you pour a litre or two on the ground and throw a lit match into it, it probably won't ignite. And in any case to get ignition you need substantial vapour and not liquid, hence the delay from when the fuel tank starts to come apart and ignition. At the speed the plane was travelling at that could be up to tens of metres. Yet again I can confirm that the speed they were doing is not impossible at all and is not particularly difficult to do if you ignore the overspeed audible warnings and wind noise.
