306. Ok
spooked didn't tell us how many BTU's his fire produced

I supposed that when he said a "cup" of kerosene he meant 237 milliliters.
If he did not measure the fuel, that was a mistake.

spooked didn't tell us how many BTU's his fire produced

Then the remedy is to scale up the effort, not to ridicule it.

spooked didn't consider whether or not the links of the rabbit wire
were in any way parallel to the WTC towers


I'd imagine that he considered it but since rabbit wire was what he had
available, he thought it was better to go ahead and try it. If you study
the WTC perimeter column "trees" you see there is a great deal of lateral
bracing provided. The rabbit wire simulates this--how accurately I couldn't
say.

spooked's foot appears to be out of scale

True, but it only goes to demonstrate that the model was far far stronger
than you might think.
