>So as a welder you’ve personally and repeatedly ignited jet fuel in a large office building by crashing an airliner into it>
I didnt say that. I said talk to a welder. You have a forge? I do. It is the *ONLY* other way that I know of to get that color on steel. Pick one; it is real easy. either the photo has been doctored to show that color. Or- the fuel, in this you suggest Jet fuel, but any of a large number of hydrocarbons would do, was mixed with oxygen under pressure to deliver it fast enough to create that kind of heat.
In a forge, you need a *blower*, and you start with charcoal or coal, which itself is solid so that the various chunks have more surface than a pool of liquid does. Which is what the Jet fuel on the floor of the twin tower would have been. Yes, there was that brief moment when impact sprayed droplets of jet fuel all over that area, but as has been pointed out by others, the available oxygen would have been immediately used up. And now, if you want to get that kind of red heat, you need a blower, and you need to dropletize the fuel so it has enough surface area. It aint like a furnace with a pool of burning liquid. You can, and people have, and I know one mechanic who heats his shop by simply dripping used crankcase oil into a heater, create fire, but note… the whole setup is made of mild steel, not the kind of high strength steel used in the twin towers.
They used the high strength steel to minimize column diameter and maximize rentable floor space. And ya sure, if you heat it up, its weaker. but it dont get that color splashing kerosene on it. Ask a welder, dont take my word for it, After you have talked to a welder and know something other than what you can pull out of your anal orifice, then maybe others would care to read about it.
I dont really claim to know. I dont have a conspiracy theory because I dont claim to know that I have the relevant and accurrate facts to go on. I asked if the photo was doctored. One response, I found useful, was by someone who said he was familiar with what could be done with photoshop. And he dont think it was doctored. But if we could trace the origin of the photo, and maybe talk to the crane operator, we mite have more to go on.
So now, what I am asking for is revelvant data that can be verified, and your response is to question what I know about Jet planes. I dont think anyone really cares. You are trying to defend a point of view. I am not. I am perfectly willing to wait until I have more facts to go on. And yes, to the other point in this thread, when airliners crash, the Jet fuel; often burns, and a lot of the metal melts. The aluminum & magnesium. NOT steel. At best what you can do with jet fuel, lacking blown oxygen, is case harden the steel because of the carbon in the fuel. As a welder.
Of course, you can always delete my comments cause it makes you look bad. I dont mind, I dont mind going where I dont annoy people, but if you do decide to do that, I’d appreciate it if you brought that to my attention. What you all think here is your business. I dont have a problem with it. I can ask about the doctored photography elsewhere.
