From: "Lagasse, William"
Dear Sir rest assured it was a Boeing 757 that flew into the building that day, I was on duty as a pentagon police sgt. I was refueling my vehicle at the barraks k gas station that day adjacent to the aircrafts flight path. It was close enough that i could see the windows had the shades pulled down, it struck several light poles next to rt 27 and struck a trailer used to store construction equipment for the renovation of the pentagon that was to the right of the fueselage impact point. The fact that you are insinuating that this was staged and a fraud is unbelievable. You ask were the debris is...well it was in the building..I saw it everywhere. I swear to god you people piss me off to no end. I invite you and you come down and I will walk you through it step by step. I have more than a few hours in general aviation aircraft and can identify commercial airliners. Have you ever seen photos of other aircraft accident photos...there usually isnt huge amounts of debris left...how much did you see from the WTC?...are those fake aircraft flying into the building. I know that this will make no diffrence to you because to even have a websight like this you are obviously a diffrent sort of thinker.
The Statements of Sgt. William Lagasse AFPN; June 24, 2003
Galling is a form of wear caused by adhesion between sliding surfaces. When a material galls, some of it is pulled with the contacting surface, especially if there is a large amount of force compressing the surfaces together. Galling is caused by a combination of friction and adhesion between the surfaces, followed by slipping and tearing of crystal structure beneath the surface. This will generally leave some material stuck or even friction welded to the adjacent surface, whereas the galled material may appear gouged with balled-up or torn lumps of material stuck to its surface.

I'm laughing at how you're acting like you have insights to offer by talking like this would be like working on something you'd have out in the shed.
I don't know what comment of mine you're referring to but I think I make a lot more sense than you do. Who has a light pole out in there shed. Light poles are not some mythical creature like a unicorn. There are people who actually work with them and know a little bit about them. Hands on experience is a good teacher , maybe just a little better than sitting behind your keyboard trying to teach yourself something that you seem to have problems comprehending.
For four nuts to hold those tall poles with lamps and electricity up the torque specs have to be maximal. And they're tucked away inside there with the nuts right in the corners, so no quick external free range access.
Last time we spoke I told you that there are covers that go over the bolts. They are not tucked into tiny nooks. I did like your cute little manual that you posted though. Try reading through it.
with the added tension of the lightpoles themselves adding to the math involved
You bring up a good point here
So yeah laugh it up. 9/11 is no different than UFO's stuff; all good clean fun. Maybe we'll get some new hoaxers on the scene and it'll be an even bigger barrel of laughs.
I'm having a simple conversation about nuts and bolts with you. I dont get why your riding on such a high horse and please don't put words in my mouth. I said I laughed when it became evident to me that you don't really understand what a wrench does and because of that you conclude that I'm sitting around laughing , having a jolly time while millions of people are getting murdered. I would appreciate it if you didn't try to paint me as a monster. You have no clue about me. I would give out the shirt I'm wearing to anybody , I'm always trying to help out. I guess if you can't attack the message then attack the messenger.
I'm sorry , I was trying to reply to some of your comments individually but I don't have the highest iq. All I could think to do was to bold my comments so it made more sense.

Several poles, but no wires?
