    9/11 featured on cnn.com today

    Take a look:

    www.cnn.com

    I kind of like one of the interviews on the page that clearly shows the extreme heat and fire that caused the collapses. Here's a few excerpts from the interview:

    ALLEN: Could you feel as you descended heat coming down on you?

    LESCE: No heat. … Just water, and that's all there was. …We'd go down maybe five or six stairs, stories, and then it'd be absolutely dry. And we'd go down some more and then there was a shift from stairway A to B as things got congested.

    When I stepped out into the plaza, there was nobody. It was like the last man on earth. Except for about four inches of white soot, looked like snow.
    The whole story can be found here:

    BTW... I can only imagine what was going through any of those people's minds... "In Memoriam" captured it as good as can be expected. HBO made it.

    Since it wasn't the heat that brought the towers down, maybe it was the inches of water that was seen rushing down the staircase. Must have eroded the fuck out of the concrete and pulverized it to dust.

    Lemme ask you something... you broke open calculators and such when you were a kid, just to see how it worked, didn't you?

    Yeah, but there's nothing in there but a circuit board. Still don't know how the fuck those things work.
