A 'natural collapse'
or 'progressive collapse'
from top down has only happened twice in history:
In spite of it being an extremely rare event, plenty US scientists, incl. NIST and ASCE, support scientific theories explaing how litte weak, solid, rigid and light top part C crushes by gravity big strong, heavy and intact bottom part A into rubble ... and that evil terrorists used the effects of this strange theory on 911!
Oh I should totally have said "progressive collapse". Thank you for reading what I meant, and not my clumsy lay-person description.
...and I know right! I had one awesome class in uni that really focused on the juncture between accepted science & fringe science - and how lay people (who are the people on juries, those making public policy, etc) are reliant on experts to present and interpret more complex, specialized evidence.
I've really started thinking that 9/11 is the penultimate case-study. It's one heck of a mess to the average person. Like, when you've got authorities
using junk science with apparent impunity, how the heck are people meant to make sense of it?
And some of the ridiculous things people on youtube put forward as supposedly self-evident...honestly...I'm almost left speechless. Like, being told a plane with a 52 foot tail height seamlessly "slid between floors" with the cockpit flying out the other side...complete with nonsensical explanation, and something about me being retarded. Sometimes, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry...even if it is
In all seriousness, this is gonna be one heck of an entry in the history books...and the eternal optimist in me doubts the structural strength
of their Orwellian web of deceit!
