165. Sorry, I did see that one. Yes, it does look like it's exploding, but.

it looks more like it's being crushed downwards and the guts are being blown outwards. If it were exploding, I think I would expect to see all four faces blowing outwards at the same time top and bottom. This looks like there's a wave travelling downwards. Frankly, it doesn't look like anything I've ever seen before.

There's no place else for stuff to go but outwards. It can't go up or down, because there's still floors in the way above and below.

Also, I've never seen a 110 story tower fail before, so I don't know what it should look like.

Further, I don't get the significance of the narrator commenting that some of the ejecta has been clocked at 120 mph. How fast should it be ejecting if the tower was not falling in the manner in which AE911Truth claims?

This video, like all the others I've seen, have only incredulity for evidence. I've been a mechanical engineer for 35 years, and I need to see the math. Bazant did the math. NIST did the math. Where is AE911Truth's math? I can't find it. Where's their proof that bombs were placed? All I see is conjecture that elevator workers *could* have placed bombs. Or thermite. Or thermit bombs.

Do you see my problem? I need to see something more objective than just questions as to how this or that could have happened. AE911Truth doesn't provide any empirical work to support their claims. And buddy, to claim that someone murdered 3,000 people without really fucking solid proof is a dangerous thing to do. Now Bush and Cheney were really bad guys (Cheney more so) but if you want to accuse him of murder, you'll need something that you can take to a judge and a jury. Why hasn't AE911Truth done that?

But I will thank you for engaging with me in a more mature way than taunts. I respect your viewpoints.

Now I think I'll go mix some narcotics with my Scotch. Good night.
