Computer animated collapse

Does this give anyone any ideas?

The area under the impact seems incredibly resistant to collapse, unlike WTC 1 & 2 ; (would've liked to see the ball hit higher up)

Someone contact these guys and get them to do a simulation of the WTC'ers!

Collapse and Reports of Explosions and Reverberations

Looking through the video from the batch newly released from NIST. Here is a clip titled “NBC News Dub_clip16A” in a folder titled “NBC_News Dub from Jim Remberg.” In the middle of a TV interview, the first Tower collapses. The reporter immediately refers to hearing an explosion and “the reverberations” from that explosion. He repeats this multiple times, and at the end he says that he’s two blocks away and he clearly felt the reverberations. Would you really feel “reverberations” from a gravitational collapse two blocks away? Match that with my previous video here ( in which you can hear a distinct explosion before/just as the collapse occurs.

Jim Huibregtse clip_15B - Close-Up South Tower Flow

I noticed something in one of my previous clips (Jim Huibregtse clip_15B) that I thought was interesting. This is a zoomed-in view (and then slowed down) of the pyroclastic flow generated by the collapse of the South Tower. I added two red dots to help you locate two distinct 'white trail' ejections (see my earlier posts on white trails coming from the building pre-collapse) coming out of the pyroclastic flow. Do you see them? That seems odd, no? More thermitic reactions post-collapse?

NIST Cumulus Video - Sounds (and Reports) of Explosions

Looking through the newly released batch of videos from NIST and I found some interesting stuff in the folder "Richard Peskin." I have a edited together bits from four of the clips in that folder where you can hear what sound like explosions (after both towers have fallen), and the videographer (presumably Richard Peskin) saying that he's heard even more. They seem to be located around... Building 7. It all starts moments after the second tower collapsed.

The files I used were: Peskin 25.avi, Peskin 28.avi, Peskin 29.avi, and Peskin 30.avi.

(SOTT) – Any theory that does not match experiment is wrong. It doesn’t matter what the computer models predict, how much funding is behind it, what the experts say, or what everyone “thinks”. Nothing can fool the laws of physics.

The Ultimate proof NIST is lying about WTC7

The Ultimate proof NIST is lying about WTC7 Over 1,000 Professional Architects and Engineers agree that the mysterious collapses of WTC Building 7 and the Twin Towers on 9/11/01 need to be re-examined and investigated. The NIST report is proven to be unscientific and false, using evidence NIST either ignored or gathered and used itself. I used the public domain video created by NIST, available here: Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth: FireFighters for 9/11 Truth: NFPA 921 on High Order Damage: Shear Studs: A Case Study: Van Ramiro's SuperThermite experiment was courtesy of Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory" TV Show on TruTv (formerly CourtTV) from Episode 2 on 9/11 Conspiracy Theories.

A laymans stroke at the WTC2 pile driver theory

A lot of the explanations and arguments in favour of the controlled demolition theory (CDT) is a bit heavy and requires a great amount of scientific reasoning, witch can lead to failure of the implications to really sink in and be integrated. I for one, finds it difficult to use the more scientific arguments in an improvised ad hoc discussion, because I just barely understands it when I get it explained myself. Therefore I find it very usefull and productive to find some laymans arguments, that even a child can understand and use.

To make a challange out of it, I will try with the most non-appealing case - WTC2.

The Preciseness of AA11 impact

Atta, the wizzard

AA11 impact orientation

The axis (nose) of A11 impacted the exact center of the north wall with some 1m accuracy. The impact speed was 220m/s, the downward angle was approximately 4°, while the lateral angle was less than 3°.

This analysis is based on the visible north face damage and video evidence.

The first picture reflects the upward wing flexing.

15 Signs American Society Is Coming Apart at the Seams

Editor's note: The following is an edited excerpt from the Amped Status report, "The Critical Unraveling of U.S. Society."

The economic elite have launched an attack on the U.S. public and society is unraveling at an increased rate. You may have missed it in the mainstream news media, but statistical societal indicators are reading red across the board. Let’s look at the top 15 statistics that prove we are under attack.

1) The inequality of wealth in the United States is soaring to an unprecedented level. The U.S. already had the highest inequality of wealth in the industrialized world prior to the financial crisis. Since the crisis, which has hit the middle class and poor much harder than the top 1 percent, the gap between the top 1 percent and the remaining 99 percent of the U.S. population has grown to a record high.

DEMOLISHED vs. COLLAPSED - The Language of Deception

The language of deception is used against us every day and most of us don’t even realize it has been done to us or realize the devastating effect it has on us. My task here is to expose some of the subtle deceptions hidden within the terminology we in the 9/11 truth movement use every day. My goal is to shine a light on the subtle deceptions that pass under our radar every day and to counter those deceptions with the language of truth.

First we have to consider how we in the 9/11 truth movement describe what happened to the World Trade Center (WTC)? The question is, should we say that WTC 1, 2, and 7 “collapsed” or should we say they were “demolished” and does it really matter all that much? At first glance it may not seem to be a particularly important question as to which word we use. I will expose however that it is, in fact, very important which word we use. Furthermore I want to reveal how and why the debate has been framed from the beginning by our opponents with the endlessly repeated use of just one simple word, “collapsed”.

Entire New 13-Story Building Tips Over in Shanghai

** I thought steel & concrete buildings spontaneously turn to dust, from top to bottom @ 10 floors per second, straight down into a nice neat little pile when they unexpectedly collapse--just like 3 of them did in NY on 9/11? Oh well, those are the arbitrary laws of physics for ya! [/sarcasm] **
Entire New 13-Story Building Tips Over in Shanghai

This past Saturday, an entire apartment building in Shanghai collapsed. To be fair, the building was under construction and thus unoccupied, but it's still a minor miracle that there was only one fatality.

Sounds like there was a problem with some nearby flood prevention walls at the Dianpu River, but there's no hard evidence as to why this huge building simply fell over. Anyway, here are some sweet pictures of the architectural carnage.

I wonder why there is no neat little pile of rubble and a bunch of dust..... hmmmmm
