I know you're kidding, but just because JLV states something, that doesn't make it gospel(unless it's MXS related) or necessarily a fact or truth. It's an opinion based in real world physics and/or chemistry. I think he may be off base, but I'm just gonna say it looks like the sparks from a molten river of ferrous material. Without proof it's just conjecture. I wish more people today knew the difference between a fact and an opinion.

Yeah i'm just messing around, as long as we can all agree the collapse of the towers was due to uncontrolled and prolonged fires we are good.

Yepper! I just want someone to show me what happens when you use charges to implode a 110 story tower of identical construction. Since everyone's an expert! Must be nice!

I.... I... actually agree with Havoc.

99.9% of the people saying "bbuttt steel can't be melted by jet fuel" can't tell you the material structure or properties of the various alloy's of steel.

The government could hardly create a functioning healthcare website at first go, you think they orchestrated such a massive global terrorist event and killed thousands of it's own people?

So, since everyone agrees on this subject now. Shall we move onto the Roswell incident?

i mean we did invent the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird that is undetectable to radar and sonar, flys in the top 1% of the atmosphere, and goes over 2,000 mph. America is an odd country. We can build amazing and life altering technology, but cant build a healthcare site

And we got missile lock on the SR-71 8)

Zoa, I hope the Blackbird was never detected on SONAR! SR-71: idea hatched in '58. Designed by slide rule and pencil on paper by an unfettered Skunkworks. We may never duplicate that design environment ever again. I highly recommend reading or listening to Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen https://g.co/kgs/bnykwT. Take it with a grain of salt and it's really interesting what the takeaway is. Some shit is the opposite of what you'd expect. Example: Russia was responsible for the Roswell incident! Read it and see.

I think....... that we should be able to speed.

Hey man, when I was a kid you could! Speed limit was 75! That means 90 most of the time with over 100 not too abnormal. Today everyone goes 80-85 without too many getting ticketed. I feel like DDavis hehe...

1973—55 mph National Speed Limit
A sign next to a highway says "Speed Limit 50". A newspaper in the foreground has an article about the new speed limit.
In 1973, Congress enacted a national speed limit of 55 mph (89 km/h). Some states, such as Washington, enacted lower speed limits.
As of November 20, 1973, several states had modified speed limits:[6]

50 mph (80 km/h): Rhode Island, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Vermont, and Washington
55 mph (89 km/h): North Carolina and Oregon
California lowered some 70 mph (110 km/h) limits to 65 mph (105 km/h).
In late November 1973, Texas Governor Dolph Briscoe recommended adoption of a 55 mph (89 km/h) statewide limit.[7] On December 4, the Texas Highway Commission, with a 3–0 vote, adopted this 55 mph (89 km/h) speed limit, citing unsafe speed differentials between the flow of traffic and people driving too slowly to comply with Nixon's and Briscoe's requests for voluntary slowdowns. The legality of the measure was questioned, and two Texas legislators threatened to sue to block the limit.[8] However, by December 6, Texas Attorney General John Hill ruled that the speed reduction "'was in excess' of the commissioners' legal power," citing that a 1943 Texas Attorney General's opinion held that the legislature holds the power to set the statewide speed limit and the Commission's authority was limited to changing it in specific locales where safety factors required lower limits.[9]
As an emergency response to the 1973 oil crisis, on November 26, 1973, President Richard Nixon proposed a national 50 mph (80 km/h) speed limit for passenger vehicles and a 55 mph (90 km/h) speed limit for trucks and buses. Also proposed were a ban on ornamental lighting, no gasoline sales on Sunday, and a 15% cut in gasoline production to reduce total gas consumption by 200,000 barrels a day, representing a 2.2% drop from annualized 1973 gasoline consumption levels.[10][a] Nixon partly based that on a belief that cars achieve maximum efficiency between 40 and 50 mph (64 and 80 km/h) and that trucks and buses were most efficient at 55 mph (89 km/h).[12]

The California Trucking Association, the largest trucking association in the United States, opposed differential speed limits on grounds that they are "not wise from a safety standpoint."[13]

I know there more and more 80 limits in Michigan now which is nice

80? Well, there you go! Poof! It's legal to speed! Eish granted!

140 isn't fast enough for me
