Here's an experiment even a mentally challenged crinoid like yourself can try:
Pour some kerosen ...
Pour some kerosene into a building, light it and time it to see how long it takes for the building to collapse.
Funny about how the ignorant tossers denounce the idea that the WTC fire weakened the steel structure.
This report a day ago from Melbourne.
Man charged over Flemington hotel fire June 7, 2012 06:39AM View as multiple pages
A MAN has been arrested after Melbourne's Flemington Racecourse Hotel, a known haunt for squatters, was destroyed by fire.
Fire broke out at the disused two-storey hotel, across the road from the Flemington Racecourse, just after 9pm (AEST) yesterday and took 50 firefighters about two hours to put out.
Emergency crews couldn't enter the building's smouldering shell because of a partial roof collapse, and at one stage the radiant heat of the fire melted nearby overhead tram lines.
So a fire, in a brick hotel, no tonnes of jet fuel, just furniture and internal structures, caused tram electrical cabling several metres away from the building to melt.
If it was copper wire, then the melting point is over 1000 degrees celcius.
If it were steel then the melting point is even higher.
As has been explained, steel loses a great deal of its strength at temperatures over about 500 degrees celcius.
The enclosed fire in the WTC perfectly explains the collapse due to the loss of the structural integrity of the framework.
Anyone who disputes this is ignoring the facts, and that's a fact.
(note, one minor typo fixed - clearly of great concern to some dickbrained conspiracy nut)
