Because even Africa was more hospitable than Europe with yearly arid climates and a ton of natural resources. Did Africans ever utilize this? No, but the Europeans in their frozen shithole of a continent somehow managed to get it together and build civilizations while Africans are still struggling to do the same.

Actually that is there very reason it seems the European society developed, it needed to. without they could not succeed, whereas in Africa they could subsist more easily off the land.

Well lets stop being technical, jet fuel is basically kerosene, it hardly burns hotter than diesel.
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.
#46 - anonymous (02/21/2015) [-]
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.
#37 - TwiztidNinja (02/21/2015) [-]
For reference i found a picture of a steel framed building after an office fire.
This particular fire lasted for 20 hours.

Did a plane crash cause the fire and affect structural integrity in this building?
User avatar #40 - TwiztidNinja (02/21/2015) [-]
The plane crash is why the tops of the buildings should have fallen off to the side, the fact remains that the entire buildings collapsed for basically no reason.
User avatar #80 - durkadurka (02/21/2015) [-]
There was a reason. That reason was a large aircraft.
User avatar #83 - TwiztidNinja (02/21/2015) [-]
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...
#87 - durkadurka (02/21/2015) [-]
Planes are made out of aluminum with some plastics and other materials. They aren't bricks but they aren't paper mache either.

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.
User avatar #48 - didactus (02/21/2015) [-]
The engineers and architects who built it knew that if it were to have a collapse or structual failure they made the building so that it should collapse onto itself.
User avatar #50 - TwiztidNinja (02/21/2015) [-]
Demolition FAIL All buildings are built like that, and they are built to withstand the impact of them falling on themselves as well, this is why you need to demolish a modern buildings supporting structures on every floor to bring it to the ground.
#43 - mrlalman (02/21/2015) [-]
Is it far fetched to ponder that maybe the damage from the planes were pretty uniform and that collapse in one end was therefore immediately followed by collapse at the other ends which gave too much downward force for the rest of the building to stand?
#47 - TwiztidNinja (02/21/2015) [-]
With how those buildings were built, yes it is.
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.
User avatar #51 - taniv (02/21/2015) [-]
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.
User avatar #89 - durkadurka (02/21/2015) [-]
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.
User avatar #95 - taniv (02/21/2015) [-]
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.

NEW: 9/11 Hotel Video Released of NO PLANE hitting the Pentagon! One thing extremely interesting about 9/11 is the pentagon.
Before 9/11 happened the wall of the pentagon underwent renovations to reinforce the entire structure.
And i say wall literally, the only wall that was reinforced is the one that was hit.
Oh btw watch that video, no one has or does lol.

it was hit by the large perimeter columns of the Tower collapse. It was 400 ft away but the towers were more than 1300 ft tall. As the tower peeled open, it easily tilted over to reach building 7.

all the buildings just as far away from both towers as WTC7 were hit. The others were either very short buildings which didn't have to support a massive load above or had no fire. Only Building 7 had unfought fires and the massive load of 40 stories above them.
#262 - benighted (07/26/2013) [-]
im not very familiar with the facts on building 7, i just posted it cause it was related. its just weird a building falling in that way because of fires, where there fires in every support beam in one floor? also why didn't the other buildings right next to tower 7 which were at almost the equal distance from the WTC towers collapsed if they received as much damage as tower 7 did?

User avatar #70 - durkadurka (07/25/2013) [-]
Pretty much everything you said about 9/11 is wrong. First of all, the fuel plus the paper and flammable materials in the building were easily enough to weaken the steel to the point where it could no longer hold up the massive weight of the floors above.

The building did not fall in 6 seconds. The collapse took about 24 seconds.

No, the building should't have fallen sideways. There was no FORCE pushing it sideways. The force of the top floors overcame the weakened sections and collapsed the building on itself. Gravity works directly downward; there is no force to direct the building in any other direction.

There are many engineers and other smart people who know exactly what happened. They're certainly more informed than you or I.

9/11: So it's not possible that the buildings weren't built to code for a FUCKING AIRPLANE STRIKE? I'm a fireman and I can say with certainty that most buildings will crumble if you look at them funny. Yes, it's strange that they went straight down, but considering the first few floors went that way, the probability of each floor past that going that way as well increased, because of the sudden shock of weight on supports that weren't built to handle a collapse of the floors above all at once.

Also, what about the mind control chemicals in the chemtrail tanks of airliners? WHO KNOWS what temperature they burn at?

Police use of force has increased because the increased use of force has saved lives. Tazer first, ask questions after is the best way to subdue a lightly armed subject, and not pulling your gun on a heavily armed subject is the fastest way to a pine box in the ground.

Treyvon Martin: Double Jeopardy doesn't work like that. Zimmerman was not arrested the first time, and not charged at all; the time he was charged by the attorney general was the only time he was charged. That did not violate any law, though it was shitty.

Yes, the prosecution hid a lot of stuff, and so did the media. The prosecution did it because it was their job, and so did the media. Convictions and ratings is how they get paid.

There is no new world order. There is no way to remove all the guns from a populace; china tried, and in that period they had one of the highest spikes in gun violence ever seen anywhere. We are living in a time where personal liberty, worldwide, is better than any time in the past. There will always be politicians that try to mandate things one way or another, but they all find out how immovable a populace is about the things that are important to them.

The zimmerman case...

Duh, that's how law works. Portray your side as righteously as you can. That happens all the time. Whatever.

Police...

They now have access to non-lethal weaponry more than ever before, but much of America's police force is still an older generation of cops who do things differently. If you give a guy a tazer and tell him that if someone gets too close, you can't kill them until they shoot, they're going to resort to the loophole. Personally, I'm fine with the cops. No one understands that they're people too and they have the instinct to protect themselves. If they think they're in danger, they don't ask questions first, they shoot. Or tazer...

Lastly, 9/11...

If you saw the footage of the plane crash in San Diego a few weeks ago, the fuselage of that plane ignited crazy fast. The blast produced by the planes on 9/11 is similar enough to say that the planes were not rigged with bombs. Fine. But the towers... I don't know for sure, but because I'd like to be an optimist, I'd say that the bigger they are the harder they fall. If you were a hundred story skyscraper, I'd think you'd collapse fast. And they didn't fall in 6 seconds, that's misleading. The towers were both on fire for a very long period of time before they collapsed. Also, when one falls, the debris can weaken the other's structure.

Thanks for reading. If you did...

User avatar #60 - useroftheLOLZ (07/25/2013) [-]
Allegedly, the support beams to the world trade center beams were cut with thermite. A lot of the speculation comes from this, the fact that the act was done by Al Qaeda, which the Bush my filthy item daddyistration funded for years, and before 9/11, members of Congress were trying to push a bill similar to the Patriot act, but due to there being such a negative public, and political view of it, it wouldn't get through, unless if by sheer dumb luck, the public opinion would sway the completely other way, and would want something like that, to "Protect national interest, and defend the United States of America from Terrorists, both Foreign and Domestic." A couple of weeks after 9/11, the Patriot act was railroaded with little to no opposition.

#58 - berespectable (07/25/2013) [-]
well since you want to talk like you know so much you really ought to have learned these things already but I will give you a start.

Steel buildings like that are in fact made to withstand airplane impacts. The designer of the wtc towers really had that in mind when he built them, in fact he overbuilt them. I cant give you links in this nazi site so you will have to look it up on your own.

In 1975 the north tower had a large fire that burned for 3 hours, but unlike the blatantly dishonest CNN reported, not only is the melting temperature of steel far higher than jet fuel can burn at its very highest temperature, but also unlike their lying diagram, the towers had an enormous inner and outer steel skeleton which was one of the most overbuilt in the world.

There are many steel buildings like that around the world and though many of them have been hit by planes and have had first that lasted days and got a lot hotter than the wtc fire, they did not collapse as collapsing in their steel structure is impossible under those conditions. Even the few which have toppled over for whatever reason fell like trees and bent but never broke.

The molten steel buried under the wtc site that remained hot for weeks after as due to the cutting charges, thermite type substances and micro nuclear bombs which were set off in the basements to 'cook the books' for some sensitive data the conspirators didnt want getting discovered. Both of these detonations were recorded by a seismograph prior to the fall of the buildings.

I want to say who is doing it and why but people that have not researched this deeply have been taught by the media and the public school to knee-jerk disbelieve, mock such truths.

There is far far more than enough solid evidence to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the destruction of those buildings was done intentionally by a group of international agencies working in tandem. You need to do that research. Media, government, schools, all have been lying.

You're alright. It's hard to get a point across on this website the indoctrination of this nation has been quite effective on FJ. And I Give you one of my favorite quotes.

“If something is wrong for you or me, it is also wrong for the cop, the soldier, the mayor, the governor, the general, the Fed chairman, the president. Theft does not become acceptable when they call it taxation, counterfeiting when they call it monetary policy, kidnapping when they call it the draft, mass murder when they call it foreign policy. We understand that it is never acceptable to wield violence nor the threat of violence against the innocent, whether by the mugger or the politician.”

User avatar #81 - teranin (07/25/2013) [-]
ok so, you may not be aware of this berespectable, but the steel didn't "melt" in the world trade center, it softened from the absorption of heat. Steel's integrity decreases by close to 90% at 1000 degrees farenheit, an easy temperature for jet fuel to reach if there is sufficient pressure and time (which there was). The Steel's integrity was weakened, and it collapsed, it did not "melt".

"Micro nuclear bombs"

This pretty much proves you're full of shit.
User avatar #76 - mistafishy (07/25/2013) [-]
Actually he just had it a little funny, not entirely broken...

You can't physically detonate a small scale nuke like that.

What probably melted the steel was a thermobaric blast.

Thermobaric bombs are used for superheated explosions to, say, melt through steel. Their secondary use is to be detonated at the mouths of caves to suck them dry of Oxygen, but that may not have been needed at the time if a conspiracy were in place.

However, I don't know if thermobaric munitions use thermite or thermite based compounds in them... but that may explain any similarities.

The seismic blasts, however, were probably the buildings' foundations buckling rather than any bomb. If there were a bomb, where would the crater be? If the blast were below the ground, damage other than described would occur...

But the molten steel is interesting. I know for a fact that it couldn't have remained hot for weeks though, that's just crap.
User avatar #85 - durkadurka (07/25/2013) [-]
My point with the small nukes is that though they exist, there is radiation released. You'd be able to pick up the higher levels of radiation very easily.

The steel didn't have to melt at all. It just had to weaken to the point where it could no longer support the weight above.

The thing about these conspiracy people is that they string together some facts while ignoring the rest.

that's nice. here's a recipe for some nice chicken tikka masala.

6 garlic cloves, finely grated
4 teaspoons finely grated peeled ginger
4 teaspoons ground turmeric
2 teaspoons garam masala
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 cups whole-milk yogurt (not Greek)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved lengthwise
3 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) or vegetable oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup tomato paste
6 cardamom pods, crushed
2 dried chiles de árbol or 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro plus sprigs for garnish
Steamed basmati rice (for serving)


Combine garlic, ginger, turmeric, garam masala, coriander, and cumin in a small bowl. Whisk yogurt, salt, and half of spice mixture in a medium bowl; add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and chill 4-6 hours. Cover and chill remaining spice mixture.
Heat ghee in a heavy pot over medium heat. Add onion, tomato paste, cardamom, and chiles and cook, stirring often, until tomato paste has darkened and onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add remaining half of spice mixture and cook, stirring often, until bottom of pot begins to brown. Add tomatoes with juices, crushing them with your hands as you add them. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often and scraping up browned bits from bottom of pot, until sauce thickens, 8-10 minutes. Add cream and chopped cilantro. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens.
Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set a wire rack inside sheet. Arrange chicken on rack in a single layer. Broil until chicken starts to blacken in spots, about 10 minutes.Cut chicken into bite-size pieces, add to sauce, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Serve with rice and cilantro sprigs.

** Zatarain’s is a Louisiana food group. It gives this dish it’s distinct taste. If you have never used Zatarain’s, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s a blend of essential oils of Bay, Clove, Black pepper, Thyme, and Majoram . You may use the actual spices to season the potatoes, but it won’t be quite the same.
** The method of flour cooked in butter or oil, in La, is known as a Reaux (Roo). All liquid based dishes in La are started this way. It’s traditional and very tasty.
In about 3 quarts of water and Zatatrain’s boil the potatoes until not quite done. Drain and **reserve the water. In a mid to heavy weight pot, brown butter. Add peppers, celery, onions, and garlic. Stir often, cook til translucent. Meanwhile, mix flour with HOT tap water. Blend smooth, you can use a tightly lidded jar and shake. This keeps the lumps out of the dish. Very important! While stirring constantly, blend flour into butter base. Keep stirring as it will thicken greatly. Brown flour, some of it will stick to the pot, scrape and stir in. Add the stewed tomatoes. Mix well. Add up to 3 cups of the potato water. Stir often. Add the zucchini, and potatoes. Add the spices all at once. Lower heat and simmer, for a while. Stir occasionally. The base will thin as the zucchini cook down. Serve Piping hot, option- serve over rice, very South Louisiana.
p.s. It’s even better the next day after the spices have soaked for a while.
