61. OK, here she burns

The structure is entirely loaded with steel ball bearings on the upper 3rd.

I'll take it appart and weigh all the bits when it cools down.

I already tested it with the 4 kilogram weight, and she's peachy keen.

After observing this, i know that there is absolutely no way in hell
that jet fuel could have harmed that structure. I kept using the blowtorch
to see if it would burn hotter, and it melted the aluminum skin with the
coal fires inside the column.

I'm disappointed, i expected the top of the building to vaporize and fly
apart sideways, and then the rest to come smashing down on to the
foundation throwing the ball bearings all over the place.. Then i expected
it to smoke for several months. It got hot at the bottom, i could see the
mesh turning red from the heat by the fire lighters.

I agree with the critique that my structure model was overstrong, however, i compensated
by loading the building with 70 stories of coal, sitting in a 3 acre lake of kerosine, 10
stories deep, with special ignitor blocks embedded all over the towers to burn hot.
