The article in Popular Mechanics was authored by Benjamin Chertoff. Does the name sound familiar? Yes, because his cousin Michael is the head of Homeland Security.solgrabber, please comment on this article from Popular Mechanics that debunks many of the popular 9/11 myths propogated by the"Truth" Movement.
No no, Solgrabber is the government agent. He works for an outfit in the Department of Defense, military intelligence psychological operations unit. His mission is to socially engineer 9/11 conspiracy hysteria throughout different message boards. The purpose of this type of information warfare is to deflect attention from the serious questions about 9/11deafplayer said:fascinating....
....but where is your source?
WHERE THE FUCK IS YOUR SOURCE MOTHERFUCKER?!!
or are you another NSA agent?
SellyCat said:The history of the Icelandic horse can be traced all the way back to
the settlement of the country in the late 9th century. Vikings who settled in Iceland brought with them their horses of various origins, though mostly of Germanic descent. Some sources claim that at the time of Iceland's settlement there was a breed in Scandinavia and Northern Europe called Equus Scandinavicus. Due to the isolation of Iceland, this stock remained pure while it was crossbred elsewhere. Other sources claim that the Icelandic horse is closely related to the English Exmoor pony. Whoever its cousins may be the Icelandic horse is pure-bred and unique today, over a thousand years after first coming to the land of fire and ice.
Yeah man, I heard about that...it's a real nation pride thing. It would be like calling an Arabian Camel a Moose, you know? People fly planes into buildings over that shit.Adam said:
Here's a pic of an Icelandic horse I took. They are quite tiny, albeit rugged and loyal.
Tip when visiting Iceland: Don't call Icelandic horses 'ponies' to an Icelander. They are not impressed.
If I wasnt so lazy I would post some pages from my firefighting text books.
It is so simple, heat rises and creates thermal layers of different degrees. This is why we can go inside a burning building and attack the fire at its source, because the heat layer we can crawl underneath it and not get burned. The first thing we do in a structure fire is cutting a 4x4 foot hole above the fire for the superheated air to release. If the roof has been weekened we do it from the sides. The heat that escapes along with the smoke and we use the water on the fire as a giant heat sink.
This is NOT how a high rise fire is attacked. A high rise has stairwells and elevator shafts that remove the heat from the area, we then go to the floor below the fire, hook up to the buildings stand pipe, take th charged hoseline on floor above the fire-floor- make a loop and come back to the floor and attack the fire.
The combination of the heat going out the side windows, up the elevator and stairwell shafts, and the shear size of the structures steel supports coupled to the rest of the building GUARNTEES we will NOT have a global collapse. Wont happen on that type of buildiing. The rest of the building works as a heat-sink, and will not let it heat just one area to the point of failure.
There is not enough fuel to make that much heat for this to happen if you pumped it in for hours. Let alone under one hour. This is not some design flaw, its the way things work, that building absorbs and spreads the heat and it will never fail from heat.
That is why the Madrid fire made the building look like a torch and burned for 24 hours without collapse.
A brave and strong firefighter made it to the fire-floor and calmly stated. " We have to isolated fires and can knock them down with two hoselines" He did NOT say we need 2 and 1/2 inch line, he did not state we need a master stream. He said 2 hoselines, that means two 1 and 1/2 inch hoselines, about what we would use on a house fire.
Yes we do get excited and lose our cool if the fire is big enough to create huge amounts of heat, that is why we have officers who are not net to the inferno, that keep their cool and tell us what to do. That man was calm.
I dont care what some of these air people say. I am a seasoned firefighter, and EVERYONE in my battallion cannot figure out what happened to make those buildings fail. I go inside houses while they are on fire and put them out. I know what it takes for a type of structure to collapse. 9/11. Something was way wrong that day that killed 343 brothers, you gonna tell me 343 seasoned FDNY didnt know it was about to collapse!?!
You tell that to their families damnit!
