Should MythBusters Do A 9/11 Show?
So Obi Ken tells me that he posted a message on the MythBusters forum asking them to do a show to debunk the many 9/11 conspiracy theories.
He said they deleted his post.
Yes, a 9/11 conspiracy theory debunking episode of MythBusters some might deem to be in bad taste, but I'm thinking it just MIGHT be necessary.
I wandered onto this online talk show called One Black Man's View and they were REALLY spewing all the garbage about the World Trade Center buildings being destroyed as the result of controlled demolition carried out by THE US GOVERNMENT.
Obi Ken and I pointed out the similarities of the WTC collapses to the gasoline fire in California that brought down a bridge earlier this year, but the one thing that has never made sense to me about any sort of theory about there being deliberate demolition charges involved in the WTC collapses is that the collapses DIDN'T look like controlled implosions AT ALL - no small series of explosions leading up the collapses, and the collapses started RIGHT at the levels where the planes hit.
In fact there's a really great stop-motion video of the North Tower Collapse where they're trying to say they see the TV towers falling first, but what is really obvious is that the floors ABOVE the level where the plane hit collapsed almost completely before the rest of the building started to come down.
If the rest of the building had been lined with explosives wouldn't the burning jet fuel shooting down the elevator shafts have ignited some of those charges first and brought the building down starting at a lower level that was under more weight?
Has there been massive shenanigans and impropriety in the Bush Administration?
Did they DELIBERATELY blow up these buildings?
Somehow I don't think so ...
