WTC7 - World Trade Center Building 7


Recommended Posts

I agree. Nothing is perfect but I would say concrete is definitely better than steel when exposed to heat extremes. By the way, the empire state building has had planes run into it including a B25 bomber. But I'm not suggesting any building be built to specifically hold up to a plane crash. Would be nice though if engineer/architects would research the effects of fire on structural components when designing a structure. If they did there would be no such thing as things like lightweight truss construction.

They do. And have, for decades.

OMG!!! So i should take the words of 29 people over actual evidence to the contrary because we all know that these 29 guys have no possible political agenda whatsoever?!?!

One of those 29 experts.. McCoy.. just graduated in 07 with his BS in Civil Eng..... which made him about 15 at the time of the WTC collapse.

How can you not trust such wisdom and experience ?!?!?!

As was I...

lol ah. I was gonna say don't group me in with mister topic starter lol. But to go along with your last post, I gratuated with my masters in architecture this past August, that doesn't necessarily make me an expert and a glorified architect to offer an expert opinion for people to take my word over a thousand others. I mean come on, the guy gratuated in 07? Really people, really?

Well I just read your first post and I can't believe these conspiracy theories are still going around. It's simple:

When a building burns for hours and hours, it is bound to collapse (especially when it's made of a steel frame).

That is why firefigters rush to office fires even though there's no one in them in the middle of the night, mainly so the building doesn't collapse. You need to lay off the wackjob conspiracy theories, you honestly don't know as much as I know when it comes to this no offense.

And if you'd like to talk about the whole "conspiracy" aspect:

(BTW I am a democrat if that has anything to do with anything)

- You know how many people would be involved, if the government killed 3,000 people that day? I cannot begin to give you that number and as you know the more people involved in a conspiracy, the more chances there are of it coming out. Like Enron or watergate, they had a couple people involved and still came out. And now its been 9 YEARS and still not a single famous engineer (and don't name Jones, he's a complete moron and I can explain why if you'd like) has come out and published an article about how the buildings fell "strangely"

- So the government killed 3,000 people to go to war right? Then howcome the government (who were the only people who knew about the terrorists) said that the terrorists weren't from Iraq (the place we foolishly invaded) but instead from Saudi Arabia! Why would the gov't say that when we are oil buddies with the Saudi's and instead invade Iraq, they could have just said the terrorists were from Iraq to complete their "perfect" conspiracy!

So if you have anymore conspiracy theories on 9/11 (ie holes in pentagon, WTC collapses, BBC, etc) I would be happy to disprove them. Like I said, with all due respect, the stance that you hold is absolutely moronic based on common sense.
