You are again fixating on the 'speed', this is why you are missing the point here. The speed is irrelevant, what's important is the fact the
buildings didn't slow during the collapse but continued to accelerate through thousands of tons of undamaged building.
The only way for an object to fall through the path of most resistance is to take that resistance away.
And your statement that it didn't slow down during the collapse is ridiculous also. What happens if it's at equilibrium? Why would it
continue to slow down? What if the resistance is greater, but the weight increases?
What happens when your parachute opens? You slow down initially, granted. But then you reach equilibrium between the drag (resistance) of your
'chute, and you are descending at a constant rate.
By your definition, I should be descending slower and slower. So if I open high enough, I'll stall? Clearly NOT the case.
A building collapsing is nothing like a parachute. A parachute is using air pressure, just like any object falling with no resistance (other than
air) will reach equilibrium after some time ( a lot longer than it took those towers to fall).
Now the towers had thousands of tons of undamaged building resisting the collapse, not just air. Your parachute doesn't create a build up of
resistance from air, it's constant. The build up of resistance from a collapsing building is completely different.
As far as weight there was no extra weight introduced that the building wasn't designed to hold by at least x2. At that safety factor it could hold
twice it's own weight, and the figure is probably higher than x2.
And most of your weight was ejected and fell outside the towers footprints anyway (except WTC7), so how was weight a factor?

Try again, this time, I'll expect you to produce something that would convince a member of the CTBUH to look into your claims.
LOL you should try going to school again and learn some basic physics.
