The office fire itself was burning hotter than the fuel from the plane, the fuel just ignited the fire, the joke should be "office fires cant melt steel"
Generally speaking (As in every time other than 9/11) steel framed structures are left as skeletons after a fire.

Jet fuel wasn't the only thing burning there. The planes that hit the towers were made of aluminum, and filled with compressed oxygen tanks, along with a whole fuckton of other flammable shit between the building and the plane. This caused a thermite like reaction, which damn well could melt steel.
Not to mention the impact itself affecting the structural integrity of the building.

In comparison to those buildings those planes were tiny, the planes were made of alloy, plastic etc.
the buildings were made of structural steel.
they did sweet fuck all to the structure of the building, the fire did much more.
the steel frame should have bent in the direction the plane hit and the top should have fallen off after going past 30 degree...

You're trying to have it both ways; you claim that the plane strike was both inconsequential to the building's strucutre and significant enough to affect the building's structure.
Still, pictures of the collapse show quite clearly that what you state should happen, did in fact happen. The upper section gave way at the weaker parts first, causing a significant list in the top portion as it fell.
The top of the building isn't just going to fall off of the rest of the structure. The center of gravity was still relatively centered and enough of the building was holding itself together to prevent Looney Tunes level tipping.

If all of the main support columns gave way at once on 5 of the floors those buildings were still strong enough to take the downward impact force from the top floors crashing into them, even in the scenario that all the main support columns give way at once on 5 floors we would have seen the tops of the building fall momentarily, slowly come to a stop then either stay put or topple over the side.
Seriously they were extremely well built towers.
here is a pic highlighting all of the supports that would have to give way all at once for the top floors to drop vertically.

Even if every floor failed, the motion wouldn't have been a free-fall because every floor would slow down the momentum. There's also the problem of thermite residue being found at ground zero.
There are genuine questions and concerns about the 9/11 incident that haven't been answered or been taken seriously by the general public. Some people blame the government because their 9/11 report cited the cause as inconclusive. I blame people who claim that Bush is a lizard for making a mockery out of questioning governments and their operations.

Momentum is the product of mass and velocity. Additionally, momentum is conserved, meaning that if the falling portion is losing momentum that momentum must be transferred elsewhere (ie the rest of the structure).
As the rest of the structure fails, the formation of falling debris is gaining mass, and thus gaining momentum as the collapse continues. I doubt each floor had much of an effect on the velocity of the debris either, as the falling portion does not seem to slow down much at all.
And it's my understanding that the chemical compounds of thermnite residue is not difficult to imitate with materials found in the tower.

Think about impulse though. At the moment of impact, without purely elastic or inelastic objects, there is going to be a change in velocity for both objects. To put it simply, if you throw something at a wall, there are a few possibilities. It sticks to the wall, it comes back to you at varying speeds depending on elasticity, or it goes through the wall. Depending on the structure and properties of the wall, it's going to go through that wall at different speeds. So if we put momentum of the bottom floors at 0 before impact, and the top floors at some X kg*m/s, then the outcome of the fall would have to be X kg*m/s, but since the two floors now fall together there is now more mass falling, and therefore to conserve X momentum the velocity would have to be lower. Of course the floors could be accelerating downwards so quickly that any deceleration is unnoticed, but I've seen a few Engineers who comment that it seems to be in free fall, or accelerating downwards at a constant 9.8 m/s^2. Not sure about the numbers on that because that'd be complicated to calculate, but the comments they made was that there was no sign of any impact between floors near the top. If a group of top floors fell and subsequently hit lower floors on their way down, that should produce enough debris to be visible from the video footage but that's not the case.

There are some legitimate mysteries that may or may not have rational answers to them. It's just a little scary hearing that the CIA may have planned small-scale terror attacks on US soil to rally people during the Cold War. I'd like to see an unbiased but detailed exposé on what we do and do not know and what can and cannot be explained at the moment for those events.

Haha these days?
Governments are more trustworthy today than they have ever been in the past 90 years man.
heck look how long it took russia to admit to the world that the first dog in space did not survive but infact died a horrible death.
If it takes 40 years for a secret like that to come forth, how long will it take for the big secrets is the real question.
