    how good are the mythbusters and how about doing a real challenge. show me how that little old man built the CORAL CASTLE in south florida and i’ll be your biggest fan. matter of fact, if you want i’ll meet you there and help you out. i live in upstate new york and i’ve never seen the castle but i’ve read everything i could find about this and i’m pretty knowledgeable but don’t have the resources to figure this one out myself. please let me know if you can or cant figure this one out but i do believe that big brother might stop the show if you teach the world how to demagnetize bolders to make them weightless. i don’t imagine i will ever hear back from you as i believe that you won’t dare touch the “CORAL CASTLE”

    When are they going to do a show about 9/11 & controlled demolitions?

    • Matt says:

      Unfortunately, probably never

      • jay says:

        And it’s so easy to do! All they have to do is suspend a cinder block (made of concrete of course) from a helicopter at the height of one of the towers (doesn’t matter which) and drop it to the ground (also obviously made of concrete). If the cinder block turns to fine dust (as opposed to fragments) upon impact (as the towers did), then the official 9/11 theory is plausable. Otherwise, it’s not.
