Why don't you and the others sell your knowlege ( since you seem to know everything about it ) of the use of thermite to the demo team...
Umm...why don't the both of you just cool down for a sec....please. We are talking about the failed demo...not the WTC. Although the original post from WCIP was valid.....it was just a thought of his...I think. Now, why can't we talk about the subject at hand and not try to personal attack each other? Nothing to see here (these are not the droids you're looking for)...move along.
While I do respect, and to a great extent agree with , your views regarding the collapse of the WTCs, I also have to say, "There's nothing here ... move along ... move along.
Jedi_Master, you make an excellent point regarding how much potential $$$ can be made from the lessons learnt from 9-11; a point which I have been stating for months and months now. Let me repost a post I made long, long ago:
Yeah, I know, I know. My first post was merely taking the piss. But then I couldn't resist having a bit of fun stirring up Jedi since he got so poopy-faced in reaction to it. Can't I have a little fun?
Well, WCIP did ask you to join in on the money making. Also, why don't you start a company or are you afraid that fires will NOT bring down a steel structure?
Okay man, you win or whatever. I don't want to continue this any more. It seems clear to me that you have an issue with me personally. If that is the case then it would be best if we continue this via U2U. No hard feelings from me, but I'm out of this thread.
Redyke said bringing down an old grain elevator is never easy and it's a much different process than trying to collapse a building on itself.
"Every blaster that I know has had difficulty with a head house," he said. "There's not a one that hasn't had a difficulty. It's the nature of the beast."
You see, this is what amazes me. People just don't learn any lessons from history. All they had to do was set a fire on a floor near the top and wait for 45 minutes. The building would have collapsed into pulverized dust and pick-up sticks at near freefall speed. Of course, it probably survived because it was made of concrete. If it had been constructed of huge steel columns and over-engineered off its head, it would have exploded itself all over the surrounding field within seconds.
