Jazzy, can you give me one real world example of a hot spot being created by the collapse of any structure save 911 buildings . . .?So I did. Threw away the fag-packet.
LOL. Show me.
Oh, you do it too.
Yep. Fill concrete with air holes and that's what you get.
You may be correct, and the people that found a stairwell and escaped lied when they said they used a scraper to hack their way into a staircase and escape. Or they were extraordinarily strong...
Still makes not the slightest difference to my argument that the hotspots were produced by the potential energy of the towers. It just makes a slightly smaller quantity of hotspot likely - if you were correct, which the above illustration debunks rather.
Well, you would say that, wouldn't you? What else can you do? You don't want the real explanation for hotspots when you're trying trying to propagate some thermite inside-job myth.
The thing is that we real engineers get out our calculators and can figure out quite quickly what proportion of that 110,000 kW of potential energy found its way to the basement to manifest itself as hotspots, while people like you look for paint residues and grind your teeth.
