Debate Between Box Boy Gage and Chris Mohr


Audio here. It is unfortunate that a lot of the debate seems to revolve around video and photographs, which we will have to wait for, but Mohr (a former investigative journalist) does a good job in the part that I have heard so far. I especially appreciated him asking Gage why they apply fireproofing to steel in high-rise construction; Gage's response was that fireproofing made them indestructible (!) in fires.

Box Boy is the usual dope. He denies significant fires in the towers, especially the South Tower. He brings up Chief Orio Palmer. He brings up "set up to fail", Max Cleland and John Farmer; I thought the idea was to discuss the towers collapse and not the freaking commission.

I do love the way he tries to frame things so he's the winner; either Mohr must explain X, Y or Z, or the debate is over. JAQ-off Jon Gold has a similar idea of what a debate consists of:

Here's a good topic for debate... should there be real justice for what happened on 9/11, and have we been denied that? Yes. I win.


Justice has not yet been brought to Osama Bin Laden, but I doubt that's what Gold is nattering on about.

Twoofers will be going apeshit today to try to say this somehow "proves" whatever it is they are claiming. It does clearly show fires on the roof although I don't see how that helps the twoofer cause, but I'm sure they'll invent something. For sure, they will claim the NIST held it back as part of a "cover up."

Pat, the fire on the roof is mysterious quite independent of any collapse theory. How did it get started? There was another mysterious isolated fire on a high floor on the west side--you can see it in Consdemo's video as a white spot.

Given the structural importance of the hat truss, fire on the roof might be related to controlled demolition. Leaving the hat truss intact might have resulted in embarrassments such as the top block falling off the building.

GutterBall, NIST says the purpose of the hat truss was to support the antenna, but since they blame the truss for transferring column instability from one region of the building to another, it clearly had a macrostructural purpose as well.

The hat truss would aid the top part falling off the building because it tended to make the top part a monolithic block, as the tipping top of the south tower shows. Any asymmetry to the collapse and, with the aid of the hat truss, the low side tends to pull the high side over.

Greg, the smoke came from burning desks, filing cabinets, computers, carpets, and drapes. Where did you think it came from?

DK, what makes you say the "SA and RA SHAFT" was supposed to stop smoke? How do you stop smoke with a shaft?

DK, the law of conservation of angular momentum says that once the top block of WTC2 started rotating, it should have continued to rotate until it fell off the building unless it was stopped by an imposed force.

The goat molester prevaricates, "...GutterBall, NIST says the purpose of the hat truss was to support the antenna, but since they blame the truss for transferring column instability from one region of the building to another, it clearly had a macrostructural purpose as well."

No, the hat truss had no "macrostructural purpose"--you bullshitter--because it was not designed to bear the building's gravitational load.

NIST wrote, "...The hat truss, a feature atop each tower which was intended to support a television antenna, prevented earlier collapse of the building core. In each tower, a different combination of impact damage and heat-weakened structural components contributed to the abrupt structural collapse." -- NCSTAR 1, page xxxvii

Thus, we can see that you're blowing smoke up our collective ass. The hat truss had only limited influence over the core, to say nothing of the amount of time necessary for the initiation of the collapse. It could not have prevented the structure from "tipping" because that was not its intended purpose. Additionally, a cursory glance at the schematic of the hat truss assembly, found on page 11 of NCSTAR 1, proves the hat truss had no influence over the heavily damaged corner columns or the floor truss assemblies where the collapse initiation occured.

The goat molester continues to babble and confirm his dishonesty, and scribbles, "...The hat truss would aid the top part falling off the building because it tended to make the top part a monolithic block, as the tipping top of the south tower shows. Any asymmetry to the collapse and, with the aid of the hat truss, the low side tends to pull the high side over."

False.

The hat truss was integrated into the structure well above the point of impact, which was the point of failure.

NIST continues, "...In WTC 2, the core was damaged severely at the southeast corner and was restrained by the east and south walls via the hat truss and the floors. The steady burning fires on the east side of the building caused the floors there to sag. The floors pulled the heated east perimeter columns inward, reducing their capacity to support the building above. Their neighboring columns quickly became overloaded as columns on the east wall buckled. The top section of the building tilted to the east and to the south and began its decent. The time from aircraft impact to collapse initiation was largely determined by the time for the fires to weaken the perimeter columns and floor assemblies on the east and south side of the building. WTC2 collapsed more quickly than WTC 1 because there was more aircraft damage to the building core, including one of the heavily loaded corner columns, and there were early and persistent fires on the east side of the building, where the aircraft had extensively dislodged insulation from the structural steel." -- NCSTAR 1, page xxxviii.

Thus, contrary to your dishonest, deceptive bullshit, the hat truss had no influence on the heavily damaged corner columns and floor truss assemblies, nor could it have prevented collapse initiation.

The goat molester prevaricates, "...DK, what makes you say the 'SA and RA SHAFT' was supposed to stop smoke? How do you stop smoke with a shaft?"

First of all, the correct term is "SA and RA plenum", not "shaft". As I recall, it's part of the smoke venting system. This preventative measure allowed to building to clear itself of smoke, provided the system was activated by the PAPD, which allowed the buildings' occupants (the so-called live load) to better navigate their way to safety. Furthermore, the SA and RA plenum did not function on 11 September 2001, because it was damaged by aircraft impact. Thus, any reference to this building feature is irrelevant.

But that's neither here nor there. You have offered not one iota of evidence to support your claim that there was little or no fire in WTC 1 or 2.

NIST wrote, "...The fourth major structural subsystem was located from the 107th floor to the roof of each tower. It was a set of steel braces, collectively referred to as the "hat truss." (Figure 1-7) Its primary purpose had been to support a tall antenna atop each tower, although only WTC 1 had one installed. The hat truss provided additional support connections among the core columns and between the core and perimeter columns, providing additional means for load redistribution." -- NCSTAR 1, page 10.

Thus, we can see that the hat truss "provided additional support connections among the core columns" via the perimeter columns. The hat truss assembly had no influence over the heavily damaged corner columns or the floor truss assemblies.

Notice that the hat truss assembly was located "from the 107th floor to the roof of each tower," which was well above the point of impact and collapse initiation.

GutterBall, I never said the hat truss bore the building's gravitational load. But NIST does. On p. 144 of NCSTAR1 they say "As the fires continued to heat areas of the core ... the columns weakened and shortened and began to transfer their loads to the exterior walls through the hat truss...."

NCSTAR1 has many references to the redistribution of loads by the hat truss. It could not have served this macrostructural role if it did not have a macrostructural function.

Your claim that the hat truss "could not have prevented the structure from 'tipping'" does not refute my point that the hat truss would have aided the process of tipping the entire top block together. Its location several stories above the impact zone does not diminish this this function in the least.

I never claimed that the hat truss could have prevented collapse initiation.

GutterBall, the blueprints say "SA & RA SHAFT". If that's incorrect, take it up with Leslie Robertson. I'm sure he'll be fascinated.

I didn't claim there was little or no fire. I have challenged people here to show pictures of severe fires after the jet fuel burned off, and so far those pictures are as scarce as independent engineers who will endorse the NIST report.

That's right, liar, simply ignore the direct quotes I provided from the NIST Report that prove you're babbling and misleading the reader as concerns the hat truss and it's intended function.

Again, all you offer is your worthless opinion, which is NOT evidence.

The goat molester quote mines the NIST Report and lies, "...GutterBall, I never said the hat truss bore the building's gravitational load. But NIST does. On p. 144 of NCSTAR1 they say 'As the fires continued to heat areas of the core ... the columns weakened and shortened and began to transfer their loads to the exterior walls through the hat truss....'"

That's not what the NIST Report says--you liar.

NIST wrote, "...As the fires continued to heat areas of the core that were without insulation, the columns weakened and shortened and began to transfer their loads to the exterior walls through the hat truss until the south wall started to bow inward due to the inward pull of the sagging floors. At about 100 min, approximately 20 percent of the core loads had been transfered by the hat truss to the exterior walls due to weakening of the core, the loads on the north and south walls had each increased by about 10 percent, and those on the east and west wall had about a 25 percent increase. The increased loads on the east and west walls were due to their relatively higher stiffness compared to the impact damaged north wall and bowed south walls." -- NCSTAR 1, page 144.

I can see why you quote mined page 144 of the NIST Report, because it doesn't support your thoroughly dishonest propaganda.

Thus, most of the gravitational load was redistributed through the east and west walls, not the hat truss, which still distributed its load to the walls themselves for a total of 55% cumulative increase to the load bearing walls. The hat truss only prevented the core columns from collapse for a short period of time.

The goat molester continues to lie, "...I never claimed that the hat truss could have prevented collapse initiation. "

Then why did you write the following at 19:22?

"...Given the structural importance of the hat truss, fire on the roof might be related to controlled demolition. Leaving the hat truss intact might have resulted in embarrassments such as the top block falling off the building."

This implies that the hat truss would prevent a progressive collapse, so "controlled demolition" was necessary to ensure the building's destruction. The "top block falling off the building" is not defined as progressive collapse.

Hence, we can see that all you offer to support your insane ideas is your worthless opinion, and your worthless opinion alone.

The hat truss had no "macrostructural role" whatsoever. That the hat truss reditributed the cores load is called, in the engineering world, an incidental (or unintentional function), not a so-called "macrostructural role."

False.

The force of each impact with the floor below was much greater than the horizontal momentum of the descending upper section of the building. Thus, the horizontal momentum prevented the tilt from increasing significantly before the falling section reached the ground. Thus, the descending upper portion of the building maintained its center of gravity within the building's footprint.

GutterBall, what makes you think I ignored your datadump quotes? I don't comment on irrelevancies, except to point out that they're irrelevant.

The NIST report shows on p. 144, as I demonstrated, that the hat truss is involved in mediating gravity loads to various columnar components of the structure. You are babbling about something you clearly don't understand.

The hat truss, in serving to maintain the structural integrity of the top block (as we saw in WTC2), also served to aid the top block falling off the building, as the WTC2 top block would have done had it not been blown up first. In WTC1 the drop of the antenna and the telescoping of the block before the impact zone even began to fail suggests that it too was subject to controlled demolition in the first few seconds of collapse.

The fact that lots of smoke does not mean lots of fire does not mean I'm claiming there was little fire. I challenge you to demonstrate that there was a lot of fire. Aside from pictures of the 8-minute jet-fuel flares, I haven't seen them.

You're lying about the blueprints and didn't even bother to check. Floor 83 clearly says "S.A. & R.A. SHAFT". It has nothing to do with smoke clearing. It's for Supply Air and Return Air ducts.

The NIST report clearly describes the macrostructural role of the hat truss in terms of transferring loads from the core to the perimeter.

Greg, I am not an expert on how many desks produce how much smoke. I suggest that you direct your questions to the fire protection engineers at AE911truth (one of whom, Scott Grainger, is licensed to practice in 9 states).

The goat molester babbles, "...The hat truss, in serving to maintain the structural integrity of the top block (as we saw in WTC2), also served to aid the top block falling off the building, as the WTC2 top block would have done had it not been blown up first. In WTC1 the drop of the antenna and the telescoping of the block before the impact zone even began to fail suggests that it too was subject to controlled demolition in the first few seconds of collapse."

That paragraph is proof positive that you're an idiot.

The hat truss could never "maintain the structural integrity of the top block", nor could it have prevented the collapse of the structures.

NIST wrote, "...The fourth major structural subsystem was located from the 107th floor to the roof of each tower. It was a set of steel braces, collectively referred to as the "hat truss."

Global collapse didn't initiate at the 107th floor. The collapse initiated at the point of impact--the 96th floor in the case of WTC 1 and the 81st floor in the case of WTC2.

FAIL

The goat molester continues to babble, "...The NIST report clearly describes the macrostructural role of the hat truss in terms of transferring loads from the core to the perimeter."

Repeating the same brain-dead nonsense over-and-over-and-over again, doesn't make it true, asshole.

Again, the hat truss assembly had no influence over the heavily damaged corner columns or the floor truss assemblies.

The hat truss had no "macrostructural role" whatsoever. That the hat truss redistributed the cores load is called, in the engineering world, an incidental (or unintentional function), not a so-called "macrostructural role." The NIST Report is clear: The hat trusses "primary purpose had been to support a tall antenna atop each tower"--nothing more, nothing less.

The NIST Report is also clear about the hat trusses ability to abate collapse. It had a minimal influence over the core columns and the core columns alone. The hat truss could never prevent a global collapse of the structures.

Greg, I don't need to be an expert to look at the photographic evidence and at NIST's lack of physical evidence of big fires and conclude that the case for big fires in the WTC is very weak.

So you look at a building engulfed in smoke (a product of fire), and you have an understanding (I assume) that there must be a logical ratio of smoke to fire, and you don't think that the photographic evidence of the smoke in all three buildings is proof that there had to be a large area of the building with active fires. YET, with a complete lack of any evidence that explosives or thermite was used you are willing to swallow that theory with ease.

You need to donate your brain to The Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy.

M Greg, the human organism is quite sensitive to temperature. Temps of 150 F can cause death. Temps of 150 F are not damaging to buildings or to sautee pans.

GutterBall, pray tell, how did the hat truss not help maintain the structural integrity of the top block? NIST maintains that the hat truss was so strong that heated core columns experiencing thermal expansion were restrained by the truss, and so suffered increased loads as the columns "weakened and shortened" . See p. 144 NCSTAR1

Note also the FEMA report, Chapter 2: "This outrigger truss system provided stiffening of the frame for wind resistance, mobilized some of the dead weight supported by the core to provide stability against wind-induced overturning, and also provided direct support for the transmission tower on WTC 1."

The place that collapse initiated has no bearing on whether the hat truss would have maintained structural integrity of the top block. And the fact that the antenna fell through the hat truss before collapse "initiated" at the 96th floor (according to you) shows that the hat truss failed first.

Your babble about "corner columns or the floor truss assemblies" has nothing to do with the hat truss.

You claim the hat truss had "minimal influence over the core columns" but according to NIST (p. 144) when the south perimeter columns failed, the hat truss imposed their loads "to the thermally weakened cores through the hat truss and to east and west walls through the spandrels."

I never said the hat truss could prevent a global collapse. I said the hat truss was key to the structural integrity of the top block, and that in doing so it increased the threat that the top block would fall off the building.

Greg, what makes you think I swallow any theory with ease? I haven't swallowed anything. Anyone who has struggled to ignite a campfire from wet wood in the rain knows that a whole lot of smoke does not mean a whole lot of fire.

You've argued, REPEATEDLY, that the North tower's descending upper block disintegrated in mid air, and therefore, couldn't have pulverized the building.

Greg, why don't you do the math yourself? If six floors had fires, and if three or four of them can be assumed to have absorbed most of the
jet fuel that was not burned up in initial fireballs, you can make a guess at how much of those three floors were burned up with the jet fuel in the first few minutes.

Then, knowing that NIST tells us that office fires burn in one place only 20 minutes, and allowing for the 40 minutes and 90 minutes available, you can make certain guesses about how much floor space was involved. Of course it's not reasonable to suppose that WTC1 took 90 minutes to burn up what burned up in WTC2 in 40 minutes, so we should assume that only half of the available office fuel on those three floors outside the initial jet-fuel area was consumed in WTC2.

UtterFail, I'm sorry that, like my dog, you are unable to process conditional logic. It's not my fault.

There is no contradiction between 1) pointing out that the top block of WTC1 came apart before the collapse zone started to fail and 2) arguing the hat truss would have maintained structural integrity of the top block had it not been destroyed as the first stage of the collapse.

In fact, I've forgotten more about conditional logic than you'll ever know.

In the world of computer science and mathematics conditional logic is the realm of control flow, boolean conditions, branch predication, preprocessor logic (macros) and logical operators (&&, || and !), etc.

In the world of debate, and in terms of your nonsense, it's illogical (not to mention intellectually dishonest) to claim to have made use of conditional logic if you have failed to previously establish the conditions upon which you've based your idiotic argument. To do so after the fact is pure weasel "logic."

UtterFail, maybe it's because you've forgotten so much about conditional logic that you are a) unemployable b)angry c) irrational and d) wrong.

I said the North tower's upper block disintegrated in mid air, because that's what the video shows.

I also said the hat truss WOULD HAVE have maintained structural integrity of the top block IF it had not been destroyed as the first element of the collapse.

The IF clause is the condition. There is no contradiction between the two statements.

Greg, who's right and why? Well in the legal world the issue generally is decided on the basis of quality of argument.

So on one side we've got a guy who says lots of smoke means lots of fire, and who views "doing the math" as opining that "every floor spewing smoke had fires on it".

On the other we've got a guy who notes that under some conditions very small fires can produce an awful lot of smoke, and who presents an analytical method based on NIST's scientific data (office fires burn 20 minutes before all fuel is consumed) for determining just how much of the floor area was on fire.

There will of course be more than one answer, depending on the assumptions. Let's assume that on three central floors the jet fuel covered A) 1/3 of the floor or B) 1/2 of the floor and that all of the available fuel in that zone burned up in the jet fuel fires in less than ten minutes.

Let's also assume that by the time the north tower came down, either a) all the available fuel beyond the jet fuel zone had been consumed or b) half the available fuel had been consumed.

The smallest fires occur in case Bb, and there we get 8.25 thousand square feet of floor burning at any given time, 1/16 of the total floor area area--a space about 50 feet square burning on each of the three floors at any given time (after the jet fuel burned off).

The largest fires occur in case Aa, and then we get 22 K square feet burning at any given time, 1/6 of the total floor area--a space 85 feet square on each floor at any given time.

Brian,

The jet fuel wasn't the only thing burning. You admitted that yourself; Greg, the smoke came from burning desks, filing cabinets, computers, carpets, and drapes. Where did you think it came from?

Fire left unchecked will grow and expand. The large amount of smoke in the videos/pictures is proof that there was a hell of a big fire in the building.

The video shows that there are fires on the roof (you admit that too). If they didn't come from the rising fire from the crash, where do you propose they came from?

GutterBall, you lie and lie.

The north top block came apart, as videos from the north clearly show. The antenna drop shows that it lost its integrity before the roof even began to fall.

I didn't say "might" about the role of the hat truss in maintaining structural integrity. I said "might" about the possibility of the top block falling off the building. You can't even search a thread competently.

I've repeatedly provided much evidence for controlled demolition--symmetry, squibs, thermitic residues, molten steel, speed of collapse, totality of collapse, pulverization of the concrete, reports from witnesses of sounds and sights of explosions, the initial completely symmetrical destruction of the hat truss, and the inability of the official reports to explain these phenomena. You're blind.

The "if clause" is present in "had it not been destroyed", which is the same as "if it had not been destroyed". You're blind and stupid.

Greg, the rood fires deserve an explanation because they are a mystery. A good hypothesis does not leave observed phenomena unexplained. Given that the precisely symmetrical failure of the hat truss seems indicated by the antenna drop, investigation of all associated phenomena seems justified.

More stupidity, psychopath?

The NIST Report reads in part, "...In the case of both towers, the top section tilted towards the face that had buckled, behaving largely as a solid block separate from the rest of the building. It fell at least one story in freefall and impacted the lower sections with a force equivalent to over thirty times its own weight. This was sufficient to buckle the columns of the story immediately below it; the block then fell freely through the distance of another story. Total collapse was now unavoidable as the process repeated through the entire height of the lower sections. The force of each impact was also much greater than the horizontal momentum of the section, which kept the tilt from increasing significantly before the falling section reached the ground. It remained intact throughout the collapse, with its center of gravity within the building's footprint. After crushing the lower section of the building, it was itself crushed when it hit the ground."

The fuel ignited the several thousand flammable things in the building (which you admit happened: Greg, the smoke came from burning desks, filing cabinets, computers, carpets, and drapes.

If you think office fires migrated 12 floors in an hour and a half, then you should be calling for an investigation of exactly how this happened, because that is probably the question of all the questions about the WTC fires that is most generally applicable to high-rise fire safety.

With respect to the rooftop fire, it appears that NIST failed its mission to improve fire safety if it failed to explain how the fire propagated from ten stories below, and failed to propose means of preventing this in the future. Their investigation would thus appear to be incomplete and should be reopened until the rootop fire is explained.

Now stop avoiding the question. Why do you need to now exactly how the fires spread? How does it help your life?

"...Nice job of quotespam having nothing to do with the issue. The "fell at least one story in freefall and impacted the lower sections" fable has nothing to do with the destruction of the hat truss before that happened."

And, once again, we see another example of the goat molester's con game.

When I present information from the NIST Report, the information is a "fable" and to be discarded as "quotespam [SIC]."

On the other hand, when the NIST agrees with the goat molester's propaganda and lies, the NIST Report is true.

Who do you think you're fooling, psychopath?

UtterFail, the white paper of 2/3/64 says that the towers as designed could take an impact from a 707 at 600 mph. We have already discussed this.

So you are maintaining that hot air rising breached the fireproofing around the elevator shafts and ignited fires on the roof? How did it do that?

Ian, I know just fine how fire works, thank you. It needs fuel, air, and heat. You seem to think that drywall and smoke can make fire. You're wrong.

Shyam Sunder is not a successful scientist. He's been exposed as a gutless hack with no principles, and will go down in history for it.

Greg, you have not explained how a fire can climb ten floors of elevator shaft when there's nothing in there to burn and there's no air flow. An elevator shaft choked with dead end smoke can not burn.

GutterBall, the NIST report has lots of information in it. It also has a lot of speculations that are contrary to the evidence, and the notion that a monolithic top block fell at freefall is one of them.

For you to equate the citing of those two very different aspects of the report is really dumb.

"...UtterFail, the white paper of 2/3/64 says that the towers as designed could take an impact from a 707 at 600 mph. It says so in City in the Sky. We already went over this."

And you lied, as you always lie.

You simply ignored NIST's explanation, which is found on page 55--and I quote:

"...The accidental 1945 collision of a B-52 aircraft with the Empire State Building sensitized designers of high-rise buildings to the potential hazards of such an event. However, building codes did not then, and do not currently, require that a building withstand the impact of a fuel-laden commercial jetliner. A Port Authority document indicated that the impact of a Boeing 707 aircraft at 600 MPH was analyzed during the design stage of the WTC towers. However, the investigators were unable to locate any documentation of the criteria and method used in the impact analysis and were thus unable to verify the assertion that "...such collision would result in only local damage which could not cause collapse or substantial damage to the building and would not endanger the lives of and safety of occupants not in the immediate area of impact." Since the ability for rigorous simulation of the aircraft impact and of the ensuing fires are recent developments and since the approach to structural modeling was developed for this Investigation, the technical capability available to The Port Authority and its consultants and contractors to perform such and analysis in the 1960s would have been quite limited." -- NIST Report, NCSTAR1, Sec. 5.3.2, page 55.

Thus, it's proven, once again, that you're a liar who cherry picks the NIST Report.

"...I have presented a lot of evidence. I have cited the specific sections of the NIST report that show that only 3 of their 236 steel samples show heating above 480 F, and those three do not show evidence of sustained heating above 600 C."

Yes, and once again, you cite the NIST Report when it suits your propaganda and then ignore all evidence the NIST Report presents that refutes your propaganda.

Why did you ignore the data from the VALIDATED fire modeling software simulations that prove the structural steel experienced temperatures in excess of 700 degrees F?

I'll tell you why. Because you're a liar.

NIST's claim that they were "unable to locate any documentation of the criteria and method" carries no weight in light of the fact that they found no evidence of explosives either, but admit they never tested for explosive residue. So how do we know they looked for the documentation?"

How were the software sims validated? Why won't NIST provide the visualizations from the sims so experts can examine them? You do know what GIGO means, right? A software sim is only as accurate and honest as its input data.

I ignore the software sims because they are not confirmed by physical samples or by empirical tests.

The following document describes how the models were validated:

http://wtc.nist.gov/pubs/NISTNCSTAR1-5Draft.pdf

The reason models were not released--you stupid ass--is simple: The modeling data is proprietary. Without NIST's software the data itself is meaningless. The remaining models are the property of private companies.

None of this, however, invalidates the models.

Thus, we have more proof that you have no idea what you're talking about. Worse, you won't do the research that's necessary to find the truth, because to do so would invalidate your idiotic theories.

Of course you're lying. Lies are all you have at this point, seeing as that you have no credibility.

NIST's models were validated by four independent simulation efforts: Weidlinger Associates, MIT, Exponent Failure Analysis Associates and Purdue University.

Thus, the models are fully vetted and validated.

The 9/11 "truth" movement, moreover, has neither the resources or the expertise to make a valid demand for the models. Thus, it should surprise no one that NIST refuses to turn over their models and software to a group of charlatans, lunatics and wild-eyed conspiracy theorists.

UtterFail, the issue was not validation but the release of visualizations. I pointed out that the visualizations had not been released, and at 13:42 you admitted that they have not been released, despite calling me a liar for saying so.

The NCE "leading structural and fire engineers" calling for the release are not wild eyed conspiracy theorists.

You claimed that the visualizations could not be released because they were proprietary. FDS software is a free download here: http://fire.nist.gov/fds/downloads.html

Here's the user guide:

Another example of the goat molester babbling while he hasn't a clue of what he's talking about.

There are no "visualizations"--you moron. That's why I put the word in quotation marks.

"...You claimed that the visualizations could not be released because they were proprietary."

Again, you don't know what you're talking about. There's a difference between software and the models.

Again, the models are proprietary.

Read it again, until you get it through your thick skull, asshole:

"...The reason models were not released--you stupid ass--is simple: The modeling data is proprietary." -- GuitarBill at 13:42.

And likewise, the software is useless without the models. The FSD software was released for independent fire studies. NIST has never released their models, because most of the models are private property which is owned by third parties.

Once again, we can see that the goat molester can't read, and he ignores anything that proves he's wrong. And to add insult to injury, he stuffs words in my mouth, twists what I've written beyond recognition, and lies about everything I've written.

Of course, we should expect no less from a psychopath.

So your claiming that the details of NIST's "validated" sims are so super secret nobody's allowed to see them. Then how did they get validated? How did Weidlinger, which was a hired gun for Larry Silverstein's law suits, get them? Or did they validate them without getting the visualizations?

You think this is ok? NIST claims they know how the buildings fell because their super secret computer programs told them, and no it's none of our business how they got their answers?

Have you ever heard of something called a non-disclosure agreement?

Well, that's your answer, 'tard.

Weidlinger Associates, MIT, Exponent Failure Analysis Associates and Purdue University are trusted entities with the resources and expertise to validate the models. In addition, they signed the non-disclosure agreements and were granted access to the models.

9/11 "truthers", on the other hand, are anything but trusted entities with the resources and expertise to validate the models. Thus, the troofers are ignored by NIST.

Why do you need NIST to explain to you why the fires made it to the top of the WTC buildings?

 
At 13 March, 2011 23:12, Blogger snug.bug said...

Because I don't see how fires can climb ten stories up an elevator shaft with nothing in it to burn.

If you can explain it, kindly do. Preferably cite some professional fire scientists.

The only explanation I've got for rooftop fires is that flaming debris from WTC2 was blown outward and upward by explosives to land on WTC1's roof.

 
At 14 March, 2011 08:24, Blogger truth hurts said...

And you can't think of any other reason for the fires?


And can you show evidence of explosives in wtc2 blowing out burning debris on top of the roof of wtc1?

 
At 14 March, 2011 09:31, Blogger Greg said...

Brian,

You are not answering the question.

Why do YOU need to know. I understand that people in fire engineering and fire safety should know. And I would expect that if anyone in this field had concerns about the fires on the top of the roofs they would do their due diligence to research the issue and make strides to prevent future events.

But as for you, despite your inflamed ego and lack of self-perspective, you don't need to know the answer and NIST doesn't owe you an answer.

 
At 14 March, 2011 10:02, Blogger snug.bug said...

TH, some analysts of the towers' explosions claim that some debris shows an initial upward trajectory. I've never had any reason to study the issue.

Greg, the recently released video is the first that I've heard of any fires on the roof, though I have seen dramatic ejections of smoke from the roof, which I supposed represented localized roof failure immediately before the antenna drop.

I imagine that your fire engineering experts have not heard about fires on the roof.

Your "If NIST isn't concerned, it's none of your business" attitude is anti-democratic. The government belongs to the people, and in a democracy it owes them the truth.

NIST has shown a pattern of a lack of interest in the most important questions, they have framed the issues in a dishonest manner in order to dodge inconvenient questions, and their very secretive attitudes suggest a cover up.

You can't explain how the fire got on the roof, and that's why you're trying to squelch discussion of the question.

I could point out that NIST openly solicited public input while they were still working on the report. Where were you then, Brian? Where was AE911Truth? Where was anyone in the Truth movement?

Or I could remind you that when NIST did release hundreds of photographs that you were specifically demanding on this blog, you did everything but poke your eyes out not to look at them.

But you know what? I wish NIST would release its models. I wish they'd take every single thing they used to produce the report they did. put on CD-ROMs and mail it to you.

Because you couldn't even install the fucking software, much less do anything with it.

That you think these materials would be of any value to you, much less that you could correct the National Instititue of Science and Technology, is an astronomical amount of arrogance on your part.

Not just "move along folks, nothing to see here," but "Evacuate Now! You have no right to see! Experts will tell you all you need to know! Shut up!"

You know why I take NIST's word for it, Brian? Because they studied science for 20 years and I didn't. I don't have the wherewithal to correct them. I don't have the knowledge to analyze an incredibly complex mechanical model that runs on an incredibly complex piece of software, nor do I possess the basic knowledge to make any sense out of its findings. Unlike you, I don't pretend to.

I don't live in the fantasy world you do, where Google is the training chair in the Matrix, where you can just type in a subject and acquire a lifetime of knowledge in 30 seconds. It isn't, and you can't. Though you do try.

If I don't question the scientific findings, it's not because I'm DURR AFRAID OF TEH TRUTH DURRRR, it's because I'm wise enough to defer to people who know what the fuck they're talking about. You should try it sometime, Brian.

And would you please, for the love of sanity, explain why you need said information? How is it going to help you vote? You don't vote for NIST members. There is no reason for you to have the data.

You need to stop basing your ideals on the premise that there is a coverup regarding 911. There isn't! NIST reason for waiting or refusing to release data has nothing to do with a conspiracy, you have no proof of a conspiracy, and you have no need for the data they have.

The widows need their questions answered so they can be confident that the charter of the 9/11 Commission to provide "a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks" has been fulfilled.

Greg, your authoritarian principle that I must be "special" to have access to information backing up government reports on public events is anti-democratic.

Ron Brookman is a licensed structural engineer. He needs to see the details of the analyses so he can check them. He needs to check them because he has put his professional reputation on the line by expressing doubts about their validity.

The "leading structural engineers" at NCE need to see the visualizations of NIST's sims so they can comment on their validity.
