79. Nobody is proposing a giant meatball on a giant fork.
What is proposed is that the giant core structure of the WTC, built
to carry 10X the weight of the entire tower above, should have
captured the disorganized wreckage of the WTC wreckage that was
disintegrated core above it, rather than collapsing under this
relatively small amount of wreckage.

Meatball on a fork is a metaphor. I don't think that you lectured
Dr. Eagar to the effect that zippers were not scalable to the
magnitude of one acre floor slabs.
