A small tidbit for the skeptical:

"But for the conspiracy theory to work, you have to dismiss any statements made by any official or independent agency, because they could all be part of the conspiracy. The only figures considered reliable are those which differ significantly from official reports. Even expert Rosie O'Donnell told us "It's the first time in history that fire has melted steel."

But then, on April 29, 2007, fire melted steel for the second time in history. A freeway accident occurred in Oakland, California that made us all take a second look. A tanker truck carrying 8,600 gallons of gasoline lost control and crashed on an elevated underpass in the Macarthur Maze, a knot of converging freeway ramps taking cars from the 24, 80, 580, 880, and 980 freeways and funneling them into the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge toll plaza. The fuel exploded into flames and burned fiercely for several hours, but it only took minutes for the span above the flames to collapse and fall onto the span below. The director of Cal Trans, the California state transportation authority, said the heat from the fire had melted the steel girders and bolts that support the concrete roadway. He said "If you have that kind of heat, you're going to have this kind of reaction. We're not surprised this happened."

You don't have to "melt" it anyhow, you only have to weaken it. Just about anyone who has played with a propane torch has learned this lesson. If you can heat steel to bend it with a handheld torch... well, Duh!

Expansion also plays a huge role in roof a roof collapse. The steel expands and breaks the rivets that bind the beams. Once they break you usually get a pancake collapse much like the WTC. Then it just becomes a house of cards after that with the weight snapping floor after floor.

I hear politics all day at work. What I want in my cycle forum is to hear about.....cycles, duh... or well maybe hot women, but at least one or the other. I just purchased a 92 Honda cb750. Rides great,only 20k miles, handles like a dream. Great gas mileage. Looks great too. wish I had bought it years ago. More fun than my Vulcan and rides better than my Harley, in traffic that is. Oh, and by the way I"m voting for McCain..... opps there is that politcs thing again. See ya late, guys and gals, late.
