Please Tell Me This Is A Joke

Here's another "experiment". I've been burned on this stuff before, so I won't automatically assume he's serious. But if you look at this page, it certainly appears possible.

I think this is "democrat" who posts on some other debunking forums. He really believes it.

What did this prove? That paper is flexible? I'm not even sure exactly what he was trying to prove. That dropping a weight would pancake the building? Does this person understand rigidity? He should try the experiment on I don't know, metal. But it still wouldn't be a good experiment, becuase it leaves so many variables out. Why not make the tower out of rubber? Why didn't the planes just bounce off of the towers?

A bunch of sandal-clad freaks waste a weekend making a paper model and playing in the dirt?

I'm totally convinced. Its the missing piece to the whole "alternative version of the story" - so obvious that it was right under our noses.

I question the timing.

It is a Stupid Joke!
Atleast they are indoors. Less a threat to the real world.!

did you read the whole thing? they took the experiment outdoors, even had an audience

Next, was not loading very well earlier. I have now seen the continuation of brilliance.
Still in their parents backyard,I suspect. These people have way too much time on their hands!

I'm sure he's the modern Roy Neary, the guy that was building the clay mountain in his living room in 'Close Encounters'.

I gotta set of Lego's if he's interested in taking his theory a step further...:)

***Breaking News***
New conspiracy theory: WTC was hit by a 100.000 ton bucket just before collapsing.

He did forget to set it on fire first.

Also, wouldn't this experiment have proved that the WTC couldn't withstand heavy rain?

Geez, at least they could have sprung for a few sets of 'Girder and Panel (R) to make a slightly more realistic version of the towers:

It's a good thing these people aren't in accident reconstruction or forensics. The type of impact wasn't even the same...dropping a bucket on cement from the TOP is not the same as getting hit with a plane from the SIDE...they impart completely different type of loading and stresses. Not to mention that the bucket was an instantanious impact and the real tower (you know...the one not made out of paper) had damage from the impact in addition to supporting the weight of a 757. And just as a side note, none of the paper columns buckeled...smashed by a bucket of concrete? Yes. Buckle? No. This whackadoo is definately not an engineer. I think a better experiment would be to take out half of the column on one level and then load it with a bucket of concrete (not that it's more realistic, but at least closer to what actually happened). But then I'm sure he would have said "Oh no, it didn't come down into it's own footprint...must have been a controlled demolition". For which I have two words: Wind Resistance. And did anyone else notice that his "conclusions" are really more like observations?

Good answer me!
I think this is a joke.
If not that makes it even more funny!

What a dope! This guy expects a 500,000 ton building to fall like a tree in the forest.
