all your objections crushed.watch the video below.
Debris travelled 70 miles with the Tullahoma and the Joplin tornados. It did not travel on the ground.The debris is indeed lifted into the cloud and
carried to the top of the vortex. Simple evidence that strikes down that idea, and people found this evidence in Chattanooga and Springfield and it
was reported widely on the news (and even here on ATS). So we still have bricks going thru the windscreens of jets. And objects much smaller (remember
the birds in the engines that brought down the jet in the Hudson???) will bring down a jet.
All objections crushed? That is once again not in the spirit of this forum. And neither are the objections crushed.
As for the 'mind fixed at age 14', do you always have to take a personal stab? Isn't this a violation?
I will use argumentative logic instead of accusations to address this idea. I can do this because I study and learn constantly. And I try to present
arguments. Not accusations and slurs. And I remember what I learned at 14, and everything since then as well. Since the following is basic
science-class knowledge, it may be a good idea to remember the science class of grade-school. So please follow along and take the refresher course on
basics of sound.
The youtube video is not that impressive. Of course horns produce a sonic wave! It is called sound.
If we can blow out a candle with our breath, of course we can blow out a candle using a loud sound. Sound moves air just like your breath.
Now think about the size of the sound generator as compared to the size of the candle. Scale it up to match the size of the tornado. The youtube
video, far from crushing my objections, adds another argument - SCALE. It proves that the size of the shock wave generator will be much larger than a
few thousand trombones to even snuff an F1. Proof of the unfeasibility of the idea, thanks for presenting it. Now I see these massive structures
surrounding every town in the U.S., a great undertaking, and much more than your average industrial compressor can handle (more by a factor of
thousands!!!). There is indeed an argument crushed, with your evidence.
All sound travels at about 745mph as a cycling wave (the amount and distance the air is moved back and forth is directly related to the volume and the
frequency). A small sound CAN INDEED blow out a SMALL candle. But how much is needed to snuff out an F5 tornado coming down from a cloudtop that rises
25,000 to 40,000 feet? How loud? How high a frequency? This will be an IMMENSIVE shock wave. The kind of shock wave that is needed to snuff out a
tornado will cause as much local damage as the tornado, and will cause human suffering for anyone within the area. A 'directional' sound? Not as
simple as hooking a compressor to a trombone! Sure, it is louder if you stand in front of it, but you can hear it from all angles. Learned that in
grade school too.
I can always object. But I will not accuse you of anything. Maybe you should stop accusing me.
