Below is a short list of ?Did you know? questions that can be used at street actions. This is not an inclusive list - you may use any 9/11 related fact. The idea is to use these sound bites to get passersby to come over and talk to us about the events of 9/11/01. Please read and give me any feedback.?We will print out copies and bring it to the street actions. Hope to see many of you on 1/11/11 at 11:00.

Did you know?.
1. ?that on the afternoon of 9/11 a third building, WTC 7, a 47 story steel framed high rise building, came down at free fall acceleration at 5:20? And that this building was not hit by a plane?
2. ?that NIST acknowledges that WTC 7 descended at gravitational acceleration for 2.25 seconds on 9/11? And that this means that all 82 of its steel columns failed simultaneously?
3. ?that the fires in the South and North Towers lasted only 56 and 102 minutes, but that fires have raged in other steel framed high rises for much longer, and none of them have ever collapsed?
4. ?that the Twin Towers came down at almost free fall acceleration, in about 10 seconds each, which would mean that every column, bolt, tress, everything, would have had to have been removed simultaneously?
5. ?that massive steel girders from the Twin Towers were hurled 500 to 600 feet horizontally, and imbedded themselves into building across the street? Wouldn?t this mean that the buildings did not come down gravitationally, but by some other kind of energy?
6. ?that not one pilot on 9/11 squawked the hijack code? According to the official story, it took 30 seconds for the ?hijackers? to break into the cockpit of flight 93, but why wouldn?t a pilot have taken 3 seconds to squawk the 7500 code into the transponder?
7. ?that in 2001, cell phone calls were impossible at the altitude the airplanes were flying?
8. ?that LAX security was heard discussing a stand down order on 9/11, and when asked who gave this order, LAX security was told that the order came from the highest level of the White House? And that Norman Mineta, then Secretary of Transportation, gave testimony that appears to affirm this?
9. ?that NIST, not following standard national procedures, did not test for any type of explosive when investigating the fall of the 3 towers, even though there were hundreds of reports of explosions on that day?
10. ?that independent scientists tested the dust that blanketed Manhattan that day, and found large quantities of nanothermite, which is a high tech military grade incendiary/explosive, and in a form so explosive that the scientists had not seen it before? This explosive material was not made in a cave in Afghanistan.
