Building Burns, Yet Does Not Fall

A fire has all but engulfed a Shanghai building today, killing at
least 42 people, but has yet to fall to the ground.

The 30-story building had been in the process of being renovated when it caught fire about
2pm local time

I posted this video on another site comparing the 2 bldgs

and I got some questions I didn't know how to answer. These were the questions:

How long and intense was the flame impingement? What was the live load? What was the dead load? Were any structural members compromised before or during the incident?

Can anyone here help?

It's going to fall any time now - it HAS to...

Because on 9/11/01 the laws of physics changed radically.

George Bush ordered the laws of physics to be changed.

It was a presidential executive order I believe.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Still standing

after 5 hours of intense flames.
Compare this relatively weak building to the fortress that was building 7 .



I thought all buildings collapse from mere fire?

Oh wait, was this one hit by a jet?

If not, that might explain it.


Magical Jets

I seems to remember something about magical jets, which, despite being made of aluminum and flown at subsonic speeds, would be capable of causing the failure of massive 2.5" thick steel box columns. Not only could these magical jets cause the failure of the steel columns, but the resulting low temperature, oxygen starved fires of their kerosene jet fuel can create progressive pancake collapse by causing structural fatigue in the floor diaphragm and the subsequent unseating of welded steel floor joists.

Oh, wait, the UL showed that there was no significant sag in the floor diaphragm. The mechanics of pancake collapse are not tenable and defy the laws of physics. The videos of the building collapses have all of the tell tale signs of controlled demolition (whether by conventional means, or nuclear could be resolved by better analysis of the remaining samples of dust and debris from ground zero).

I had been very skeptical of the claims put forth by Dimitri Khalezov, with regard to his "testimony" concerning the demolition of the WTC, but the more I look at the evidence, the more I am afraid that he may not be another disinfo plant. One of the most intriguing things that he brought up was prior use of mini-nukes. Look for pictures of the Beiruit marine barracks bombing. See how some have been cropped to eliminate the mushroom cloud?
