The intent of this thread was not to debate the the details and intricacies of WTC7, as opposed to the fact that people should look into, no matter
what conclusion they come to, though I'll bite.

Of course your not going to get perfect free-fall speed, unless of course you are in a sterile laboratory environment. I don't think any real-world
wrecking demolition would be at perfect free-fall, given the variables existing in that moment in time.
It's a little odd that WTC7 was not even directly next the 1 and 2, yet it too collapsed along with them. The buildings that were directly next to
the towers (6, 5, 4, 3) didn't collapse, even though they sustained the brunt of the collapsing towers.
So, if the buildings collapsed due to fire, then that is a first for a steel framed building, even though other buildings had burned hotter, to much
higher degree and for a much longer time period and still never fell. If you want to use the excuse that WTC7 was clobbered by falling debris, then
how do you explain buildings 3, 4, 5 and 6 being clobbered by much more debris and yet they still stood?
The point I'm trying to make here is not that I know that WTC7 was brought down by explosives (though I highly suspect it was), only that it is very
suspicious and nobody really knows for sure. Because of this and because of the implications, it certainly warrants an independent investigation.
WTC7 simply doesn't "jive" and so the American people deserve an investigation.
