The new Scientology

I find it amusing how similar to a religion controlled demolition has become for many people.  Think about it.  You are the world’s expert on controlled demolition.  Your job is to take down two buildings much, much taller than any building ever demolished, and land them perfectly on their bases more accurately than any controlled demolition that has ever happened.  You have to do this by doing a massive amount of work on every floor of two constantly occupied buildings, without anybody seeing anything

One person claims that one tower was shut down for a weekend.  Despite the fact that there must have been hundreds or even thousands of people in the towers that weekend, no other person can confirm this.  It is preposterous anyway.  This type of building has multiple electrical systems, and is never shut down.  The kind of tenants who lease these buildings expect and demand access 24/7, 365 days of the year.  Anyone who thinks you could shut down a tower (and what about the other one?) for a full weekend has never worked in this kind of building. 

Oh, the added degree of difficulty for the demolition expert is that all his planted cutting charges, rigged to go off serially floor by floor with split-second precision, are going to be subjected to being hit by two large aircraft arriving at some vaguely determined middle floor, with absolutely no way to determine what effect this will have on the control systems for the demolition.  Absurd.  Find a new religion.  Scientology is looking for addled people.
