Your reference, of course, is to that famous physicist Rosie O'Donnell. Here, for the amusement of those who didn't appreciate your subtle joke, are the brilliant words of Rosie herself talking about the collapse of the WTC buildings.
Recently, Rosie ODonnell, a co-host of ABC talk show The View, made comments on the show that renewed controversy over the collapse of World Trade Center 7.
While saying she didnt know what to believe about the U.S. governments involvement in the attacks of Sept. 11, she said, I do believe that its the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7building 7, which collapsed in on itselfit is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.
She continued: To say that we dont know that it imploded, that it was an implosion and a demolition, is beyond ignorant. Look at the films, get a physics expert here [on the show] from Yale, from Harvard, pick the school[the collapse] defies reason.
I don’t know the details on the WTC, but you’re talking about post tension cable construction. This is used to make concrete slabs capable of taking tension stress. Hitting the softening point in a cable in a case like that would surely make the slabs fail. Also the framework would have been steel girders supporting those slabs, and those beams would also have buckled after hitting the softening point.
I don’t remember the details completely (not a Civil Engineer anyway), but there is a pretty small maximum height you can attain when you try to build a building with just masonry and not steel. Steel had it’s strength based on a couple of things- work hardening and precipitation hardening. Once you get to the softening point of the steel, both of these factors crash, and you end up with really soft metal.
you missed response 23-
the jooos had to make sure they were all out before blowing the tower-sarc
It is amazing the towers stood- for as long as they did-
watching the second plane go through the tower- I would
have thought most -beams and supports were compromised.
to cause an immediate collapse.
sometimes a logical presentation is merely lost on me.
In some cases if the Union troops had to quickly move on they would start a bonfire with the railroad ties and other wood, put the railroad rails on top of it, leave and let gravity bend the rails under their own weight. They could be used again but not without some work.
My favorite proof that fire doesnt melt steel uttered by a former neighbor, an English teacher.
Look, Ive been cooking on this stainless still grill forever and it has melted yet and neither has the lid. Ive got a Masters degree you know. She said with a sneer.
My neighbor (also with a Masters in English) mixed Ajax with ammonia to clean her bathroom.
Fortunately, she managed to drive herself to the ER.
Chemistry lesson learned the hard way.
Rosie the Riviter -vs- Rosie the Ribeater.
It depends on how hot the fire is. 1100 degree F will sure weaken steel.
I know. I was just pointing out the lunacy of it all...
A word of warning to anyone who hasn't seen it and wants to find it and watch it.
EMPTY YOUR BLADDER BEFORE WATCHING!
You will not hold it.
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.
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.
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!
What you told him undoubtedly went against the grain.
The worst would be meeting the giant who shot it.
“Fire doesnt 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.
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.
