This now leads us to the conclusion that whoever
destroyed Building 7 was either part of the group that was
planning the attack, or they had acquired information that
the attack was coming and decided to take advantage of it.
In either case they installed explosives in Building 7 in
preparation for the attack. They then waited for the attack to
occur. Their plan was to destroy the building and claim that
the fire was the reason it fell down.
The question I have for you is: what would happen if the
airplanes hit the towers but the towers did not fall down?
Imagine the following scenario: The airplanes crash into
towers; tremendous fires burn in the towers; after a few
hours the fires are extinguished by the firemen and the
towers remain standing; and then Building 7 collapses into a
small pile of rubble.
Wouldnt it be suspicious if Building 7 crumbles from a
fire if the towers survived much more severe fires?
Remember, never in history has a fire caused a steel building
to crumble. Therefore, if somebody blew up Building 7 with
explosives and then claimed that a fire caused the collapse,
the firemen would respond that fires do not cause steel
buildings to collapse.
To better understand this issue, imagining yourself back
in time to any year prior to 2001. Next imagine that a fire
breaks out in Building 7, or some other steel building. Finally,
imagine that after a few hours the small fires cause the entire
building to crumble into a small pile of rubble. If such an
event had occurred prior to 2001, it would have been the
very first time a fire caused a steel-framed building to
crumble. Such an unusual event would attract the attention
of the entire world.
Scientists and engineers would want to analyze the steel
beams to see how the fire did what no fire had done before.
Universities would want information on the collapse so that
they could use it in their engineering classes as an example of
lousy engineering. Newspapers and television stations
around the world would report it as the most bizarre fire
anybody has ever seen. I also suspect that there would be
thousands of lawsuits. Newspapers would be full of reports
like those in Figure 8-2.
The point I am making is that it would not be safe to
destroy Building 7 unless the towers collapse first. After the
towers collapse, the collapse of Building 7 would appear to
be just another weird event of that days bizarre disasters.
Therefore, whoever destroyed Building 7 would want to
guarantee that the towers collapse first. This requires that
they put explosives into the towers, also.

Skyscraper crumbles to
Is your building safe? Yesterday in
Manhattan, a 47 story tall, steel and concrete
skyscraper collapsed into a small pile of
rubble. What could cause such a total and
complete destruction of a skyscraper? A
nuclear bomb? An earthquake? An asteroid?
No! According to experts, an ordinary fire!
Diesel fuel used to power emergency
generators caught on fire. Hospitals and
many other buildings have backup
generators and large tanks of diesel fuel.
How many of these buildings will crumble if
those tanks catch on fire? Is the building that
you work in safe?

1 fire; 347,000 lawsuits!
Angry citizens are overwhelming the
New York court system after a fire caused a
steel building to crumble to dust! Most
lawsuits have been filed against the
designers of the building and the
construction companies involved in the
project, but the landlord has also been hit
with thousands of lawsuits. The landlord is
being accused of not properly maintaining
the sprinkler system or the fireproofing.
Lawsuits have also been filed against the
New York City government for allowing

Is our Government
Inept, or Corrupt?
While I was writing this book, many people complained
to me that our government merely appears to be involved in
the September 11th attack because they are incompetent. So
I decided to include information about the assassination of
President Kennedy to show that our government was just as
incompetent in 1963. Or, did our government kill
Kennedy? Can you figure it out by looking at the Warren
Report? Furthermore, if our government is incompetent,
how is an incompetent government any better than a
government of criminals? Either way, we have a serious

Jacob and Nessie's relationship continued to blossom. It was cute to see a compassionate side of Jacob, but I always saw him as the "Smart-alecky-sex-appeal " of the series. To say the least, i was Jacob-starved.

Then the whole Volturi business began. Their return seemed inevitable, but it just added to the many reasons i despised the..."child". As soon as i'd read that Alice and Jasper (went and r-u-n-n-o-f-t) bolted, i felt betrayed. Dear Alice, the purest of the loyal, headstrong characters i'd grown to admire, left her family at the news of their death sentence. I just wanted to pull out her stupid, spiky, little hair and gag Jasper with it. But who needs 'em? certainly not me. so i read on.
#246291 Nov 16, 2012
The gathering of the "witnesses" was quite interesting, and i especially enjoyed the part where Renesmee referred to Edward as "Daddy" for the first time. Maybe this kid wasn't so bad afterall? The Voluri arrived and within 5 minutes automatically believed Bella and Edward's story. Then why the hell are they sticking around?! It made absolutely no sense. Sure they claimed to want "justice" and everyone knew that but honestly, we all knew how it would end. get on with it. Finally, it looked like the Cullens weren't going to win afterall. Bella's pessimistic assesment of the situation and tearful goodbye to Edward, Jacob, and Nessie had me bawling. Why? this wasn't the goodbye i was anticipating at all! Before i began the book i had prepared myself for a different one. Bella was supposed to be leaving Jacob and all of Forks to live as a vampire with edward! that was the emotion i was ready for. But no, lame as it was, SM's magical words had me emotional for a character i didn't even care for. Yeah, i was impressed too.

The Warren Report is the US governments official
investigation of the assassination of President Kennedy. It is
analogous to the FEMA report about theWorld Trade Center
collapse, but the Warren Report has much more detail. It
contains the testimony of 552 witnesses, and it contains our
governments analysis of that testimony. A lot of people put a
lot of time and effort into the Warren Report.
As is typical of crimes, the testimony in the Warren
Report is full of contradictions. The government had to pass
judgement on which testimony was the most accurate, and
which testimony should be ignored. They ended up
concluding that Oswald killed Kennedy. However, some
people looked at the same conflicting testimony, decided to
ignore different bits, and ended up concluding the FBI killed
Kennedy. Other people ignored still other bits and found a
military or CIA killing. Some people found a Soviet killing.
How do we determine whose theory is more accurate?
This chapter will discuss the testimony of the doctors
who treated Kennedy at the hospital.(Unless specified
otherwise, the quoted material is from the Warren Report.)

Just as the pressure was building up, the lovely Alice and Jasper arrive gracefully.(of course.) I was so glad. Even though Bella had been following Alice's "clues" i still couldn't get out of my brain that she up and left town! Super Alice saves all of vampire-(and 'shape-shifter') kind and everyone lives happily ever after.

The hospital was only a few miles from the location
Kennedy was shot, so he arrived within a few minutes. The
Warren Report does not provide details about what was
happening at the hospital at the moment Kennedy arrived,
but we can assume that most experienced doctors were busy
with patients. Some doctors may have been in surgery and
could not stop what they were doing. Who were the first
doctors to see Kennedy? Were they the best doctors the
hospital had? Or were the trainees the first to see him?
In case some of you are unaware of what goes on in
hospitals, after a medical student gets out of school he often
gets on-the-job training at a hospital. These students are
often referred to as interns, and sometimes as doctors,
but they could be referred to as trainees or students.
Also, in 1963 there were fewer concerns about malpractice
because Americans did not file nearly as many lawsuits in
that era, and monetary awards were much smaller. One of
the reasons malpractice cases have since become so
numerous is that there were occasional abuses in that era,
such as when nurses, interns, and medical equipment
salesmen assisted with medical treatments when the doctors
were busy. Today hospitals are careful not to allow anybody
to do something they were not specifically trained for.

Right? Bella and Edward can live at peace with their family and co exist with their human friends. Bella has perfected her talent and is now unstoppable! Edward finally finds a way to read Bella's mind, and the two (err....three) of them are free to live in a cutesy little cottage in Forks (which Bella and Edward will hopefully 'knock down' according to Emmett)
#246296 Nov 16, 2012
So Now, that i've ranted for ages over why i didn't care for this book, i'd figure i'd break it down nice-n-easy for those who are very err....human, as Edward would say:

As the Warren Report explains, Doctor Carrico noted
that Kennedy had some serious medical problems:
Dr. Carrico noted two wounds: a small bullet
wound in the front lower neck, and an extensive
wound in the Presidents head where a sizable
portion of the skull was missing. He observed
shredded brain tissue and considerable slow
oozing from the latter wound,...
In Appendix 8 we find more details:
Dr. Carrico noted the President to have slow,
agonal respiratory efforts. He could hear a
heartbeat but found no pulse or blood pressure
to be present.
People such as myself, who lack medical training, would
assume the lack of pulse and blood pressure means that
Kennedys heart was not beating, which in turn means there
was only a few minutes before irreversible brain damage
occurs. Since I dont know how to start a heart beating, if I
had to deal with Kennedy I would have given up and
announced that Kennedy was dead. But Dr. Carrico did not
consider him dead yet:
He noted that the President was blue-white or
ashen in color; had slow, spasmodic, agonal
respiration without any coordination; made no
voluntary movements; had his eyes open with
the pupils dilated without any reaction to light;
evidenced no palpable pulse; and had a few
chest sounds which were thought to be heart
beats. On the basis of these findings, Dr.
Carrico concluded that President Kennedy was
#246298 Nov 16, 2012
Doctor Carrico had a plan to treat Kennedy and bring
him back to good health. He decided to use the bullet hole
in his neck to help him breathe. The plan was to widen the
bullet hole, insert a tube in the hole, and connect it to a
machine that forces oxygen into Kennedys lungs. This
procedure is known as a tracheotomy.
Doctor Carrico started this tracheotomy almost
immediately after seeing Kennedy. Soon afterwards Doctor
Perry arrived and took over the tracheotomy while Carrico
started other treatments.
I never had any medical training, so perhaps that is why I
dont understand the purpose of the tracheotomy.
Specifically, why put oxygen into his lungs when his heart is
not circulating the blood? Was it because these doctors had
no idea what to do about a failed heart, so they did what
they knew and hoped that soon a heart specialist would
And why did these two doctors ignore the bullet wound
in Kennedys head? Was it because brain problems are even
more complex than heart problems, and neither of these
doctors had a clue as to what to do with the head wounds?
Even with my lack of medical training I can figure out
how to force air into a persons lungs, but I dont know how
to start a heart beating, and I have no idea how to deal with
head injuries. Maybe these two doctors were as inept as me.
Maybe they were not real doctors; maybe they were
salesmen for tracheotomy equipment, or maybe they were
students. Maybe the oxygen tank was the only device they
knew how to use!
The doctors told the Warren commission that the
tracheotomy required 3 to 5 minutes. This is plenty of time
for the doctors to ask themselves why they bother to force
oxygen into his stagnant blood.

Both towers survived the airplane crashes, and slowly the
flames were replaced by wisps of dark smoke. With
hundreds of firemen rushing into the towers it seemed that
the fires would soon be extinguished and the nightmare
would be over. However, the South Tower suddenly
collapsed 56 minutes after the airplane crash. About 40
minutes later the North Tower suddenly collapsed, which
was 103 minutes after the airplane crashed into it. Why did
the South Tower collapse so soon after the airplane crash?
The portion of the tower above the crash zone was
about twice the size in the South Tower (Figure 5-1). Many
people, FEMA included, believe the weight of this section
caused the South Tower to collapse first. However, the steel
columns in the crash zone of the South Tower were thicker
in order to handle the heavier load above them. Therefore,
the increase in weight above the South Towers crash zone
should have been compensated for by the increase in
thickness of the steel columns.
