235. They heard catastrophic failures
A support element under stress, like a steel reinforced concrete column, does not fail slowly. It fails explosively releasing the totality of energy which it was supporting in a small fraction of a second. This results in a very large bang, the high speed ejection of pulverized support element, and an extreme acceleration in the direction of the failure (in this case, downward).

I see nothing in the WTC collapses that indicates controlled demolition since the evidence spewed by MIHOPers would still exist without controlled demolition. Parsimony dictates that in absense of any other evidence it must be rejected as a theory.
