Proof of Conspiracy

Posted by MyLaowai on Sunday, August 19, 2007

There’s an endless stream of yippping and yapping about the World Trade Centre (note correct spelling of ‘Centre’) and how the whole thing was a Government Conspiracy etc etc etc. Some people obviously have way too much time on their hands. Anyhow, I saw this article recently, and decided to share it with you good people. I can’t make up my mind whether the author is a genuine looney, or a good satirist, but either way I got a grin out of it.

Note for Americans and other Aliens: September 11th is abbreviated 11/9. I’ll let it slide this time, but don’t do it again.

China’s Tallest Building Catches Fire, Does Not Collapse
World Financial Center in Shanghai miraculously defies physics

Shanghai’s World Financial Center, the tallest building in China upon completion, defied all known physics yesterday afternoon when it caught fire but did not collapse, a modern day miracle in light of the commonly accepted premise that since 9/11, all steel buildings that suffer limited fire damage implode within two hours.

Anyone who has visited Shanghai’s Pudong district will note that the World Financial building eerily resembles the twin towers in New York that were destroyed on 9/11, which is why the sight of it catching fire yesterday would have led many to immediately fear the imminent collapse of the structure.

“According to an eyewitness, the building caught fire around 4:35 p.m., and floors above the 40th floor were shrouded with dark smoke. The fire was fierce, burning debris fell from the building. Many people fled the building in panic,” reports Epoch Times.

“According to Mr. Deng, a local resident, floors above the 30th floor were engulfed in thick layers of smoke, while the top of the building was also smoking.”

Officials put the time of the outbreak of the fire at 4pm and said that was extinguished by about 6pm. The south tower of the WTC burned for just 56 minutes before collapsing, while the north tower lasted around an hour and 45 minutes. According to the official transcripts of the firefighter tapes, fires in both towers were almost out immediately before the collapses.

The saving grace that could have rescued the Shanghai tower from imploding may have been the fact that it was not hit by a plane, as the twin towers were on 9/11.

However, the absence of a jet strike wasn’t enough to prevent WTC 7 from crumbling into its own footprint within 7 seconds later that fateful afternoon.

Residents of Shanghai should rejoice that the building defied the revised version of basic physics that officially came into effect at 9:56am on September 11, 2001, and remained standing, avoiding a potential death toll of thousands.

The population of Madrid were similarly blessed in February 2005 when the 32-story Windsor Building was gutted by intense fires for 28 hours but did not collapse.

Hundreds of buildings worldwide suffered major fires that gutted the entire facade of their structure before 9/11 and did not collapse, but since the twin towers behaved differently, rather than consider an alternative explanation for the collapse of the towers, experts simply decided to reverse the fundamental precepts of all known physics to make it easier for everyone to understand.

Since that time, it has been commonly accepted that limited fires in tall buildings are 99% certain to cause an almost instantaneous collapse.

The World Financial Centre in Shanghai bravely remains standing after fires gutted its top floors, a modern day miracle of science and a bizarre contradiction to the officially revised version of physics that came into effect on September 11, 2001.

  1. Your ignorance of physics, accelerants and weak consipiracy theories reflects an obvious gap in judgement and intellect. Where did you get that “Since that time, it has been commonly accepted that limited fires in tall buildings are 99% certain to cause an almost instantaneous collapse.”

    Let’s put aside the ABSENCE of the impact of hundreds of thousands of tons crashing in at over 300 mph into the building in Shangai with plane debris slicing through shafts and girders creating a conduit for burning jet fuel. A localized fire–I note no mention of the source of the fire in your post–it probably was burning plywood used for flooring, instead of the the hundreds of thousands of pounds of jet fuel atomoizing upon impact, flowing into the building’s nooks and crannies, combusting at a relatiely low level of 800 degrees F to 1500 degrees F, but hot enought to twist, warp, bend and sag the skeletal steel supports of the Shanhai World Centre, as well as crack concrete supporting the strucutre. Or the fact that steel loses appx. 50% of its strength at 1100 degrees F, and at 1800 degrees F, has 10% or less of it’s tensile strength, which there is no obvious concetration in the Shanghai fire. Plus, since the Shanghai fire was during construction, there is no secondary inferno fueled by combustible material inside the buildings such as rugs,curain, furniture and tons of paper.

    You equate this with the World Trade Center fire? Looks like someone forgot some food on a grill compared to the firestorm of 9/11.

    Wow, I’m glad I wrote the following in my preamble:

    “Anyhow, I saw this article recently, and decided to share it with you good people. I can’t make up my mind whether the author is a genuine looney, or a good satirist…”.

    May I perhaps refer you, sir, to my upcoming book ‘Reading, the Lost Art’? A mere snip at $99.95 in hardback.

  3. Who can still read nowadays? I mean read AND understand what they read. Reading, another lost skill on this planet…

  4. My oversight and tip of the hat for posting it. I jumped into immediate reply mode.
    Regards,

    No worries lah. Or, as one would say in Ewok-hua: Mei Wenti.

    BTW I found your blog to be quite useful in parts. Good work.

    WOW u have way too much time on ur hands, loser, but appaerently not enough to figure out the Shanghai WFC was not hit with fully loaded boeing767 going 500 mph. Or not hit with debris from the two largest towers in the world. U R a loser.

    Dear ewok,

    Please note the following point (again):

    P.S. UR a bad spella.
