21. LOL, yes, there was damage done to the surrounding buildings
Debris will spread on the way down. But the vast majority of the debris from the towers went pretty much straight down, in their own footprints. It normally takes many specially placed charges to bring down a building in such a nice, neat manner. Yet we're supposed to believe that three seperate buildings, damaged in very distinct, seperate ways somehow managed to go straight down? Puhleeze friend, don't feed me shit and try to convince me it's caviar.

Go back and look for yourself. The only variation of either tower going straight down was when the South tower collapsed. The top, the antenna veered off of true a few degrees right at the beginning of the collapse, but immediately corrected itself. Hell, even the most die hard coincidence theorist has agreed that the towers went straight down.

So, in all your wisdom, tell me, how can steel weaken and collapse when the maximum temperature of the fires didn't even reach the temperature that structural steel weakens at? Explain to me why on that day, three structural steel towers made history by collapsing due to fire, when no other structural steel building had ever done so before in the history of the world? Tell me, where were the fighter jets that were mandated to be in the air by a standing order that had been in use since the late sixties? Tell me how a fire that the firemen on the scene said was controlable was able to get out of control and collapse both towers? Believe me, I'd love an answer, because I haven't found a satisfactory one yet.
