Comment: Well... it isn't quite like that...

(See in situ)


Well... it isn't quite like that...

The tower was a structure built from millions (billions?) of components.

The tower was destroyed floor by floor - and I'd suggest component by component... your analogy wants us to destroy many floors in an instant.

My point is that your analogy is bad... and I don't think one can be made - even if you made a perfect scale model, I think there would be a problem scaling up (from what I remember, when you scale up/down such a model, the value of gravity has to also be scaled).

EDIT:

I can't help but add... your approach to the problem is not like any engineer I know. How many on the list of 'Architects and Engineers' are of the same caliber?
