Dubai Marina Tower Fire

Recommended Posts

Did it collapse into its own footprint at free fall speed like the WTC towers?

No. You need to set the explosives carefully to achieve that effect. :rolleyes:

I am shocked that these slave-built monuments to avarice turn out to be utter crap.

Or, as in the case of WTC7, not, as the case may be.

Have you ever looked beneath the streets in Manhattan? It's so hollowed out I'm not at all surprised that the amount of damage from the twin towers collapsing was enough to bring down other buildings.

As it happens I have. I even worked in WFC3 across the road for a few months.

But that's by the by.

My understanding is that the official explanation for the collapse of WTC7 per NIST is that fire brought it down

It was a thunderstorm derived directed energy weapon last I heard.

Do try to keep up.

They're advertising the Dubai Property Show at Olympia next week on Sky. Free admission. :)

Just seen the advert - they are using a red ribbon graphic/ident thingy hanging down from the top of the screen - looks more like a red arrow pointing downwards - subliminal message by a HPC graphic designer? :-)

Edit: just checked out your link - they are using it on the website too!
