Not that knowing a bit about strength of materials from a freshman college class wouldn't be relevant, but I think you underestimate the amount of expertise involved in that kind of analysis. I read both sides of the arguments, and do my best to make sense of the arguments, but on many things the bottom line is it's a gray area to me.
And there was more to the question. Isn't there anything at all that just seems a little bit off? A little suspicious? A little too convenient? Nothing? You talk as if you think it's all been wrapped up neatly with a bow on top, and I'm wondering if that's really true, or if you're just reluctant to admit that, really, at least around the edges, there aren't maybe just a few things that strike you as suspicious.
