Incoming opinion:
Heard some **** that days before the attack, there was construction happening on certain floors. Perhaps they loaded explosives on the supports. That's just **** I heard from documentaries and **** . HOWEVER, none of this ******** of "GEORGE BUSH DID IT!" makes sense... Riiiiight... I'm sure our government is trying to kill us... Makes sense. Again, just some **** I've heard.

Its not like the huge plane hitting it then exploding was a big factor

the WTC in new york was built to withstand several 757 strikes on mulitple levels

I don't think any building was ever built to withstand hits from several airliners, but it would be interesting if it was. That would mean that it wasn't just the plane that brought it down.

planes and bombs my friend. planes and bombs
User avatar #1479 to #1473 - TheDemonator (09/12/2012) [-]
Now that would make sense. I haven't really researched the World Trade Center attacks, I'm more interested in the Pentagon one which everyone seems to forget.

It was said by one of the contractors who built the WTC in an interview. Gimme a sec, let me see if i can find it.

User avatar #1467 to #1446 - italianrambo (09/12/2012) [-]
Yea i understood the tone, just needed a second to get the quote.

This isnt the exact article, but it says it quite a few times that the calculations and planning before 9/11 added up to say that the WTC could handle a 100mph wind, plane crash, or bomb. And i quote "little likelihood of a collapse no matter how the building was attacked"
User avatar #1506 to #1467 - ARandomSpoon (09/12/2012) [-]
Hmm, from this, its pretty obvious who did it.
Aliens..

...wait, i thought it's the plane collision that causes the collapsing?
User avatar #1449 to #1409 - noblexfenrir (09/12/2012) [-]
No it was the collision that started the domino trail, however the heat caused by the jet fuel severely weakened the structure. Considering the twin towers were much heavier built with key center beams that if damaged, would cause entire floors to collapse. You also have to remember that a large portion of the WTC wasn't planned, it was increased in height later on and the addition wasn't as detail oriented as it should have been.

One: You probably trusted only ONE scource for that info.
Two: You clearly don't understand how a 110 story building would collapse under ANY circumstances.

110 stories of steel is a lot of weight.

User avatar #1421 to #1404 - gimmeyobrain (09/12/2012) [-]
yeah no, just stop youre making yourself look stupid, it was built to fall into itself because its a massive building and it falling over would be catostropohic

Nothing falls in on itself except for controlled demolitions. If you throw things at towers, they will fall over. You can't build something to fall in on itself when it is hit by a plane (or other flying object) you can only set it up to be demolished to fall in on itself. (such as cuts in the support beams that run up the center of the tower, explosions at the base of the tower that were heard by firefighters in the bottom floor and people who were escaping from the lobby)

you ******* **** the plane went into the building loaded with enough fuel to fly across the country, and the building simmered like ****** bacon on a saturday morning
User avatar #1477 to #1440 - italianrambo (09/12/2012) [-]
Jet fuel doesn't burn hot enough to melt, or even effect steal (effect enough to damage i should say)
User avatar #1402 - doesnotcompute (09/12/2012) [-]
I hate conspiracy-fags like this. Let's just skip the part where a ******* plane crashed into the building and then the jet fuel burning inside all that time. Yeah, it's totally not gonna weaken it. Shut the **** up, retards.
User avatar #1401 - ShirazumiLio (09/12/2012) [-]
WTC had planes fly directly into them damaging whatever steal beams were holding it up.
Our government is too retarded to make this a conspiracy that has been covered up for so long.
#1397 - anon (09/12/2012) [-]
people are morons, the WTC was BUILT TO WITHSTAND A 747 HITTING THE SIDE OF IT... it was the most important building's in NYC thermite bombs caused the collapse
User avatar #1396 - weareboss (09/12/2012) [-]
i could be wrong and forgive me if i am but wouldn't the plane take out some major structural beams of the building
#1395 - fishford (09/12/2012) [-]
you realize in the U.S. we've been utilizing light weight building construction since about the 70's right? While this method works fine when the building isn't under fire conditions, it fails quickly once exposed to the heat stress of a fire. Before you start being an idiot and claiming this was a government conspiracy, learn your **** . Maybe take a building construction class as it relates to the fire service, they break down the construction of the twin towers and what exactly failed and why. Lastly, show some damn respect for those who gave there lives that day. People ran in that day exhibiting as much courage as humanly possible. Even in wars, people know they may die or get shot, but the people who went in on 9/11 knew and expected that they would be killed. They went in anyways because they knew they would be able to get more people out and that more lives would be saved than just there's and that's about the greatest show of humanity and sacrifice that there has ever been.
#1393 - anon (09/12/2012) [-]
when they built the wwc in '72 they used hollow lead pipe not steel as bracing between floors, that combined with the lack of flame retardant lead to the buckling of the tubes and one floor collapsed on to the one below it with the pressure of all the floors above it, that collapsed the floor below that one. it was a chain reaction caused by the collapse of the floor above it.
User avatar #1391 - hadtomakeanewname (09/12/2012) [-]
Now, it couldn't possibly been because a plane crashed the **** into the WTC? No, that can't be.
User avatar #1388 - nonflyingreindeer (09/12/2012) [-]
Its not like a giant metal object carrying thousands of gallons of fuel rammed into the side of the WTC vaporizing a section of it causing the top half to fall on top and crush the rest of it causing a collapse. Oh, wait
