Why Believe Simple Collapse Isn’t Possible?

I’m sorry for the longish hiatus (curse you, Civilization 5!), but in lieu of my own work here, I’d like to present a recent excellent post by Carlos at the James Randi Educational Foundation: Consider these two statements: A – Fire can bring down steel structures buildings like Twin Towers. B – The Twin Towers […]

On Bazant Zhou

I was reading through an old post at the James Randi Educational Foundation forums and came across this great quote by the poster Newton’s Bit. It concerns the Bazant Zhou paper and a common misunderstanding of what that paper was trying to show. When a column develops plastic hinges and buckles it absorbs a very […]

Explosion on “Seven’s Exploding” Video is Not Original

Wow, what a big, loud explosion is on that video tape. Too bad it’s not original to the video. First things first. It’s worth mentioning that the video was recorded just after the collapse of the North Tower. The location appears to be on the north side of Murray just to the west of West […]

Liveblogging the AE911Truth Press Club

What is it about 9/11 Truth and vanity publications? Of course everyone realizes that the Press Club rents out its facilities for all sorts of things – weddings, Larry Sinclair, and now AE911Truth. Please don’t think the National Press Club has endorsed what Richard Gage and Mike Gravel will be talking about today, or that […]

Lawrence Wright on HBO Tonight

The author of “The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11” also presented some of his material and his experiences writing the book in a one-man show. That show has now been filmed and debuts on HBO tonight. Anyone interested in the topic of 9/11 should read Wright’s book, and I expect his HBO […]

7 Facts About AE911Truth and Building 7

Adapted from Building What?’s 7 facts… 1) If nano-thermite caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever and only nano-thermite-induced demolition of a steel-frame high-rise. 2) Building 7’s collapse was extensively examined in the NIST NCSTAR 1A final report. 3) Most people don’t know about WTC 7 because coverage went largely to […]

Iron, Sulfur, Oxygen

“Corrosion is the disintegration of an engineered material into its constituent atoms due to chemical reactions with its surroundings.” Iron, sulfur, and oxygen are the primary ingredients of the eutectic corroding Sample 1. Gypsum wallboard, when burned, produces sulfur dioxide. Structural steel is mostly iron. Iron, sulfur, oxygen.

Pat Buchanan Endorses 9/11 Truth?

Oh, I thought so for about five minutes. How did I get to Pat Buchanan’s no-longer-official website anyway? (Consults history…) Ah, yes, did a little search of the term “building what” just now. It was number three on the list. Intrigued, this humble reporter was. Clicked over, he did. Marvelled. There it was, an endorsement […]

Explosion Right Before East Penthouse Falls?

Or wind noise? Amazingly enough, this is brought up in a story where Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars claims that NIST edited videos to leave out the east penthouse collapse! Except for this one with the “explosion” on it. Kind of weird for NIST to edit the east penthouse collapse from other videos, but then […]

Building What is Up!

And there may be a lie on every page! Take, for example, the first page: In any other situation, the complete, free fall collapse of a 47-story skyscraper would be played over and over on the news. It would be discussed for years to come and building design codes would be completely rewritten. What are […]
