The weight of the top causing the collapse is illogical and impossible. Can you even explain how you come up with this theory, or are you just
parroting what some web site has told you? Don't they teach basic physics in school anymore?
15 floors, no matter what they weigh, is not going to crush 95 floors that are undamaged and stronger than the upper floors. Impossible!!
Also all that weight you talk about is being destroyed as the building collapses.
Nothing is stopping the debris from falling off the side, so why would it take the path of most resistance?
Gravity causes objects to take the path of least resistance, not crush through objects bellow them.
If the floors falling on top of each other caused the collapse, what bought the central core down? If the floors were still attached to the central
core then the floors would not have fell. If the floors became detached then the central core would have stayed standing. The theory just doesn't
Look at building 2, it started to do what you would normally expect, the top portion started to topple over, then suddenly the building underneath it
The building underneath the toppling top portion was undamaged. How do you explain that? What reversed the normal physical reaction here?
But all that is irelevant when the architect of the building designed it to take multiple 707 hits. A 707 is heavier then a 757. I won't post the
info cause I have posted it before and it got ignored, I wonder why?
Look it up yourself. The buildings outer core was designed like a netting so it could move in the wind in any direction and still stand. Imagine
pushing a pencil through a screen door, does the whole door collapse?
