This Is the Kind of Nonsense the Deniers Come Up With



Watch the video (it's only seven seconds long). Notice how the bridge appears to be moving in the background? Well, of course, it's just an artifact of the camera panning back at the same time as the helicopter doing the videotaping is moving to the viewer's left.

But that's not what the Deniers think. They see something very suspicious, possibly the smoking gun!

Of course, what they're really observing is a very common phenomenon that I first noticed as a child on long car trips. When we'd see a water tower in the distance, especially if there was a hill in between, it always seemed like the water tower was moving parallel to us. This is because the angle of view of something close to you changes more rapidly than the angle of view of something far away.

Update: I love one of the comments left on that YouTube video:

Maybe the sooper-nano-mini-nuklear thermite bomb was moving the bridge, or Larry Silverstein was "pulling it"... lo

Is this what these losers are basing their ideas on? That a camera panned back to film the WTC fires and the bridge "appears" to be moving?

Can someone tell me where such nutjobs have been? I have to tell you - I am scared shitless that I have been living with these psychos breathing the same air as me.

They truly need some help. Whew.

The thing is they are going to keep "discovering" things like this for years, if not forever.

Thanks to these nutjobs I have lost nearly all my faith in humanity.

As retarded as this is it just proves that they're desperate.

They'll latch on to anything.

Anything at all.

KILLCLOWN?

Haven't heard from our favorite
nutjob lately. Could it be he got
a job, moved out of mommy's house
and became a productive citizen?

NAW!!!!

YOU ALL A BUNCH OF DOUBTERS!!
JUST YOU WAIT!!!
Thequest stepped in to rally the nutters:

Now let's bring this video clip to an expert. Does anyone know anyone we can consult? I wioll try on my own but how about anyone else?

LOL!!
We have seen already how great they are when they call someone in to "consult"!!!

They truly seem like a bunch of little kids each trying to out "nutty" the other.

It's awfully sane in here without nessie piping up.

I dunno about that observation. The towers keep their size and perspective while the bridge is changing position. If the angle of the building changed then you might be correct but doesn't look that way.

But who the hell cares? The buildings still collapses at near free fall speeds. Nothing changes THAT!

And as a result the debris must have fallen at ULTRA-free fall speed.

Don't ask me how that's possible.

They have to fall at free-fall for it to matter at all.

would someone please their camcorder, go outside and perform the same trick, and then post it so Nessie can be convinced...lol.

Get on a chopper and do the same thing and I'll be convinced.

ya right...If you were convinced about anything said in here, or any prove provided you...it would be a first.

Hmm.. this seems to be merely an artifact of the common helicopter-mounted gyro-stabilized long-field zoom video camera shooting the buildings as the helicopter flies around the towers.. why isn't it just that simple?
