43. Why do you still cling to the pancaking fantasy?
Edited on Sun Nov-01-09 11:46 PM by rollingrock
because that is precisely what you just described. I told you, even NIST thinks its a stupid idea. if the pancaking theory were true, the floors would have built up one by one above the collapse front and you would see a stack of floors growing in size above the collapse zone as the building came to the ground. but that's not what we see. do you see a stack of floors/pancaked above the collapse front?? NO. because it isn't there. unless you are hallucinating. where is the stack of pancakes? it only exists in a cartoon or at IHOP.

there is no stack of floors, there is no stack of pancakes, because the floors are literally being blown apart one by one, not a growing stack. even NIST eventually came to its senses (somewhat) when it flat-out rejected the idea of pancaking in its final report. you are clinging to a fantasy.
