No Jet Fuel? But Why?

The former Xerox building in Dallas, Texas came tumbling down in a pile of twisted steel and rubble this past Sunday, during a controlled demolition.

The former Xerox building in Dallas, Texas (anybody still use fax machines?), came tumbling down in a pile of twisted steel and rubble this past Sunday, during a controlled demolition of the 15-storey office building. The implosion was carried out by demolition experts to make way for a new retail shopping center to be built in it’s place.

But didn’t these so-called demolition experts learn anything from 9/11? They should have used “jet fuel”. Everyone knows that jet fuel can “burn through steel girders”, despite compound steel having an extremely high young’s modulus. Yup, should have used “jet fuel”, wink wink.
