Dude. I don't think the towers were pressurized. We're not talking about elementary physics principles. Elementary physics applies a little differently in real life, since we are not in a vacuum and must account for many other forces and factors.
Tell waypastvne. He brought up negative pressure and Bernoulli effect.
What I was saying is that the elevators were not pressurized, so while the basic effect will be there, it won't be as strong, meaning that there won't much to stop the flow of jet fuel down the elevator, which brings vapor too. Vapor ignites, and heating a relatively small space quickly will cause explosions.
