That's an interesting angle, I wonder who managed to take that picture. How does this picture convince you?? if demolition charges had gone off slightly out of sync wouldn't that be how a building would come down? especially as a plane had been flown in to it.
Maybe I'm missing the point, please explain how it convinced you?

An airplane crashed into the 110-story building "between the 77th and 85th floors" (1), leaving a gaping, burning hole (2). Let's do a little mental exercise to visualize what happened once the first structural members started to buckle:

Imagine what would happen if you lifted up a 25-story steel structure and dropped it onto another building. Now imagine that while you're doing all of this, gravity continues to do what it always does and pulls shit straight downwards. If your mental image at this point has any resemblance to those hours and hours of television footage that you saw ten years ago, then congratulations! You are not necessarily a retard.

(2) If you have any trouble picturing what an enormous #*@%ing hole this must have been, just imagine a Boeing 767 flying into... anything.
