Yep. I wasn’t criticizing that post, just pointing out the lunacy of the argument from the left. Sherman put heat and steel to good effect.

Kinda like horseshoes - she probably thinks those grow from posts in sand behind VFW halls.

Iron isn't melted to make a horseshoe. It's heated, then hammered on an anvil and bent to its shape. If heated too much, or whacked too hard, it tears.

The Trade Towers were nothing but a large forge, where the steel was softened by jet fuel, etc., and then bent to the point of breakage from so much weight above acting as a massive hammer.

Basic blacksmithing must be too difficult for all those intelligent truther moonbats to understand.

I had a link to a website ( lost it ) that sold gasoline/diesel cutting torches that they claimed were able to get hotter than oxy acetylene.

miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.”

I wonder, has Rosie ever visited a steel mill.

Or, for that matter, a blacksmith's shop...

If I ever saw that scene I would panic!

I couldn’t even imagine seeing a giant blue arrow like that!

I once had this discussion with a wingnut who believed it was an inside job. The fact that I have a PhD in steelmaking didn’t seem to phase him at all.

What you told him undoubtedly went against the grain.

Comments on there are hilarious with even DUmmies calling BS on this.

The worst would be meeting the giant who shot it.

“Fire doesn’t melt steel, right?”

Last week I was heating some 5/8” cold roll steel rods with a torch and bending them into a U shape for a project. My little boy came by to watch and said, Wow, you’re Superman! So naturally, I let him bend the next one by himself.

Boy! Did I ever botch that proofreading.

Corrected now. It should have read:

"Look, I've been cooking on this stainless steel grill forever and it hasn't melted yet and neither has the lid. I've got a Master's degree you know.?" She said with a sneer.

Good thing that witch moved or I'd never hear the end of it.

Very lucky and near thing for your neighbor.

Paulbots are not allowed to think. They are programmed to follow and they can only follow their supreme leader. If he says it happened they believe, no matter how ridiculous it is.

Well if Rosie said it, it must be true. I guess you didn't need the sarcasm tag.

They’ve lost it since, obsessed over Ancient Aliens (even the military channel has gone UFO).

No reason to blame the 9/11 nut jobs on the Military channel; much less, per UFO's perspectives. . .Doubt those 'so incredulous' (and incredibly naive, to believe the pap per US plot)' have ever accessed this channel.

Noooo; believe they have their own reasons; and weaknesses of mind.

All to say; and IMHO.

No, these cables sort of sewed the vertical supports together. They resisted outward forces and were all anchored to a shaft in the center of the building. Since the forces on all the walls were approximately equal they neatly balanced, allowing thinner vertical members. The structure failed when the cables gave way and the vertical supports bowed out and collapsed very rapidly. Once one floor failed, it just cascaded the others below it and floors above failed when they hit the ground.

My mechanical engineering curriculum didn’t cover the non-fire technology for melting steel.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The EE’s cover it.

It's been 25 years since I took my materials class for steel. I thought about it for a little bit a realized that my book actually did cover Electric Arc Furnaces. We didn't dwell on it..
