Imagine living near that and missing the memo.

WOW, that was pretty fast, but still not as fast as the WTC7! Wonder what brought that down.

When I saw the GoPro at the beginning, I thought they were going to do something mega cool, like putting a drone on top of the building and then having it hover in place while the building fell away. Hell you could have taken this shot with your phone. Meh.

#8 You can always rely on ignorant people (#2) to say ignorant things.
Everybody knows that a crack team of 200 demo experts secretly spent a month
rigging the WTC7 building with miles of det cord connected to high explosives,plus thermite,
just for fun,without any of the hundreds of people and security personnel
working in the building noticing anything unusual.
The two jets that hit the other two buildings were thrown in just for extra effect.

#11 Here is an idea for you...Instead of making mocking type comments why don't you share your vast knowledge and understanding of physics and demolition and explain to us how tower #7 came down the way it did? The two towers crumbled from the top down as you would expect under those circumstances. #7 was not hit and nothing from the towers hit the base of building #7 to cause it to come down. It came down exactly like this building here did. What caused it emulate a building being demolished and why did only #7 do that? I will be waiting for your expert theory on this.

They should have raised a 'tent' around it to minimize the spread of debris and dust. 2, 8, 11, 12 and 13, be easy on each other or take the fight elsewhere!

#12 you don't know that, maybe pieces of burning debris hit tower 7, it was chaos and panic, there was no rational person on site to record thing as they actually happend, Years later we still piece together the events from video footage. So unless you are God and I missed the memo, you can't prove that what you are saying is wright, I also can't, but that's fine since I am not a tin foil hat wearing paranoid.

#12 OK , Determining the probable collapse sequence for WTC 7, NIST found that the impact of debris from the collapse of WTC 1 ignited fires on at least 10 floors of WTC 7, and the fires burned out of control on six lower floors. The heat from these uncontrolled fires caused thermal expansion of the steel beams on the lower floors of the east side of WTC 7, damaging the floor framing on multiple floors. Eventually, a girder on Floor 13 lost its connection to a critical interior column that provided support for the long floor spans on the east side of the building. The displaced girder and other local fire-induced damage caused Floor 13 to collapse, beginning a cascade of floor failures down to the fifth floor. Many of these floors had already been at least partially weakened by the fires in the vicinity of the critical column. This collapse of floors left the critical column unsupported over nine stories.
When this critical column buckled due to lack of floor supports, it was the first domino in the chain. What followed in rapid succession was a progression of structural failures. Failure first occurred all the way to the roof line involving all three interior columns on the most eastern side of the building. Then, progressing from east to west across WTC 7, all of the columns in the core of the building failed. Finally, the entire façade collapsed.
According to the NIST report, a key factor leading to the eventual collapse of WTC 7 was thermal expansion of long-span floor systems which are no longer used in buildings because of this incident.

I just want to change my username without making a new account, I have become milder on registration. I would like to change it to "i dont really mind registering if it gives me cool stats about how many hours ive spend, or some would say wasted, commenting on this site".

Or would that be too long?

#16 I said share YOUR vast knowledge, not the government report that is meant to hide the truth.

Far too many demolition experts have said the way that building fell it was pure 100% demolition charges. The governments account is completely false because they know 99% of people don't understand demolition. That entire building collapsed, completely around the base, at the exact same time. The odds of that coming from the governments explanation are nil.

I bet you believe a plane really hit the Pentagon don't you?

#15 No, but you are a head up your backside, unable to think for yourself, government controlled idiot which is why the government gets away with lying to us. Too many people like you.

#18 You are hopeless and evidently know nothing of how steel loses its strength when subjected to high heat. It does not have to melt to be unable to support its load ,550 C reduces strength by 50%.The fires had been raging for six hours,plenty of time to cause steel failure.
There was over 43,000 gal of diesel fuel inside the building to power a number of emergency generators,with 12,000 gal in two
pressurized tanks in the basement feeding the generators on the fifth floor.They were found empty when the debris was cleared.
If the water mains in the street had not been broken by falling parts of the WTC 1 building then maybe the sprinkler
system could have been of some help.
I understand the dynamics of a building "pancaking" very well and that is exactly what occurred. When a single floor falls the dynamic load applied to the next floor below causes a domino progression of level failures,very simple to see.
But if conspiracy theories is how you get your jollies then have at it.
PS No loud explosions were reported by anyone near,so explosive devices could not have been used.

#21 I don't care what you said. I wasn't talking to you in the first place. You just decided to interject your demands and have offered absolutely nothing to the conversation. So run along Baby Huey, you are irrelevant to the conversation.

#20 I didn't intend for this to be a long drawn out conversation. I just wanted to hear your theory since you were so smug in your original reply and called someone ignorant. I really don't care how or what caused it to collapse. I just enjoy antagonize smug douchebags. So you have a nice day and thanks for playing along.

#22 Actually, they are YOUR demands that you expect from someone else without expecting the same to be asked of you. Didn't the words sound familiar?
And it doesn't matter who you were "talking" to. This is a public forum. You're addressing everyone.
Get out of your PJ's. Enter the real world.

#22 You are the one who invited himself (or herself) into the mix.
Being "ignorant" does not mean someone is dumb or stupid, just
uninformed. Dimitry, who is a Russian guy I think, does not need your
help in the conversation. Maybe you are just smitten by his/her avatar?
Anyway, go Va.Tech!!!

Please guys..take your debate to another place. Everybody got his opinion and theory..and you will never agree on each other. So its pointless to argue and snotr the wrong place for such things.

Thanks for the thumbs down fjwjr :P

After seeing the showers of sparks coming out of one of the trade centers, I felt compelled to investigate the collapses further because of the color of the low temperature fires generated by the planes.
I have used a cutting torch since I was a kid,
and that same color appeared when I lit the low temperature torch acetylene before I added oxygen.
There was NO occasion in over 45 years of cutting steel when I could melt or cut steel with that temperature flame,
and it prompted me to investigate the matter further.
It took a LONG time to overcome my conviction that my government was telling the truth, and the planes made the buildings come down, but I am now, after much study, fully convinced that they were not.
I also do not believe that anyone else can have a change of mind without going through a similar process as I did.
Impossible. Absurd. Ridiculous.
These words describe my viewpoint going in, and I wouldn't expect anyone else's to be any different,
but I just couldn't get away from those huge showers of sparks that I have seen so many times while cutting steel. Personally...
They don't come from a low temperature oxygen starved fire so far away.
What? Why? That got me started...
