Exactly why and how the World Trade Center fell is a question that we thought was answered. But perhaps the official report was wrong. This explanation sounds just right. In short, molten aluminum from the plane came into contact with water inside the building, causing huge explosions that ripped the building apart. With a floor torn apart, the structure above collapsed and when its weight hit the floors below, it brought the building down.

The fact that there were explosions just before the Towers fell is an anomaly that has fueled conspiracy theories for years. The suggestion in this article is not only scientifically sound -- it explains the explosions.

And oh, yeah -- I almost forgot. It looks like we're about to become immortal

Geech, just when I was buying into the conspiracy theory.

As to being immortal... I think we should all be born with a 'use by' date and get on with it. Maybe if we knew the exact number of years we had, baring accidental death, we would get on with it and not waste so much time.

I already wrote a short story about the inadvisability (and impossibility) of living forever. Immortality is not something I want. My sell-by date is fine by me, whenever the hell it is.
