When in fact logic and what you described would have the buildings toppling at the impact zone and leaving a sizable amount standing.

And if they did get hot enough to soften all the way down, why did they "break" as opposed to bend/twist like a pretzel? All the pics I saw showed broken/cut sections of straight beams, not bent.
Each end of each horizontal plate had a single row of holes so that the panels could be bolted together with cover plates overlapping the butt joint. Some close up photos seem to show cover plates on both faces of the horizontal plates, but the cover plates appear to be thinner than the plates that they are connecting together. The large amount of material removed by the holes, the thin cover plates, and the use of bolts instead of properly expanded rivets conspired to make the connections quite flexible. Sections of the wall that fell on top of debris piles bent at these connections, whereas they generally did not bend where there were no butt joints.
Really?...and could you tell us why would that happen exactly?... I guess 12-18 floors with tons and tons of weight falling one floor on top of other floors are suddenly going to be stopped....
