SnarfVader: But steel doesn't melt at those temperatures.
Donnchadha: That's what the government wants you to believe!In reality, it deliberately set on fire, then crashed into the Twin Towers through a temporal anomaly generated by the Freemasons to melt the steel of the towers with the thermite that the Hindenburg was coated with.Wake up Sheeple!
gaslight: Oh, it's been solved again. Good as it's been at least a year.
ecmoRandomNumbers: Ummm... Because it was filled with hydrogen? That was like 7th grade science class.

LDM90: I thought IndyBill Murray blew it up because that Nazi had "no tdicket"
Christian Bale: When I was a kid I thought well duh it HIT THAT TOWER AND BLEW UP. Couldn't see what the controversy was.Thirty-five of those on board died.Pretty incredible that about 2/3 of those on board lived.

sat1va: The study they did a good 10 to 15 years ago took actual fabric recovered from the wreckage and they showed how a static spark could ignite the material without the presence of hydrogen which only exacerbated the issue.
THX 1138: He could not collect his thoughts, and then he was distracted by a false sunrise that lit up the clouds off to the northeast. He thought at first that some low clouds were bouncing fragments of the sunset back to him, but it was too concentrated and flickering for that. Then he thought it was lightning. But the color of the light was not blue enough. It fluctuated sharply, modulated by (one had to assume) great, startling events that were occulted by the horizon. As the sun went down on the opposite side of the world, the light on the New Jersey horizon focused to a steady, lambent core the color of a flashlight when you shine it through the palm of your hand under the bedsheets.Lawrence climbed down the stairs and got on his bicycle and rode through the Pine Barrens. Before long he came to a road that led in the general direction of the light. Most of the time he could not see anything, not even the road, but after a couple of hours the glow bouncing off the low cloud layer lit up flat stones in the road, and turned the barrens' wandering rivulets into glowing crevices.The road began to tend in the wrong direction and so Lawrence cut directly into the woods, because he was very close now, and the light in the sky was strong enough that he could see it through the sparse carpet of scrubby pines--black sticks that appeared to have been burned, though they hadn't. The ground had turned into sand, but it was damp and compacted, and his bicycle had fat tires that rode over it well.At one point he had to stop and throw the bike over a barbed-wire fence. Then he broke out of the sticks and onto a perfectly flat expanse of white sand, stitched down with tufts of beach grass, and just then he was dazzled by a low fence of quiet steady flames that ran across a part of the horizon about as wide as the harvest moon when it sinks into the sea. Its brightness made it difficult to see anything else--Lawrence kept riding into little ditches and creeks that meandered a ...
