Heat Softens Steel! CHECKMATE TRUTHERS!!! OMG! LOL! #REKT

Yo, the Truth Movement has been officially PWNED by some blacksmith dude. Holy shit son! That's the straight dope right there! How can we argue against this kinda ass whoopin? I mean damn, all I can offer are some petty little excuses that can't possibly match up to that. This would include:
  • The fact that NIST has no evidence of fire temperatures in the Towers above 600 ÂșC (see link, pp. 6-7).
  • The fact that the steel in the Towers was much thicker than this dude's steel rod.
  • The fact that no steel-framed skyscraper has ever collapsed due to fire (see here and here).
  • The fact that we have a vast assortment of direct evidence the Twin Towers and Building 7 were demolished with explosives (including peer-reviewed scientific evidence).
But again, I mean, damn! This guy's got a video on YouTube of him heating steel. Debate's over! What're we still doing here?!

Alrighty, satire is over. Yes, this is an almost entirely unnecessary rebuttal. But to be honest, this guy's little home experiment isn't what bothers me. What bothers me is his comment that "if it was a conspiracy, I don't care." Statements like these depress me, but they don't entirely surprise me either. After all, even someone like Noam Chomsky thinks this way, so, surpise surprise, of course the average Joe would too. That, children, is what we call "being part of the problem."

Something Different: Obligatory Cat Post

Since it's generally internet law that you post pics of cats from time to time, I thought I'd take a break from my usual rants on God and politics to post some (IMO) rather cute pics of my cat. Meet Zimmie. 12 years old. High-pitched meow. Loves back scratches. Cute as hell. And loved immensely by her owner. :-)
