    Using large groups of people who think alike as supporting evidence for drawing a conclusion does not always pan out if one were to study history. For example, a majority of americans voted into the highest office in the land a community organizer with a record of abstaining from just about every vote he was eligible to cast.

    The Professor says

    Not only architects and engineers but many well known and respected senior U.S. military officers, intelligence services and law enforcement veterans, and government officials have expressed significant criticism of the 9/11 Commission Report or have made public statements that contradict the Report

    Office furnishing fires? No.

    but I believe this.

    The actual maximum burning temperature of a Jet-A fuel (standard jet fuel type in U.S.) is 980 deg. Celsius. If you refer to the Iron-Iron Carbide phase diagram, the temperature at which steel changes from cementite and pearlite (strong phases of steel) to austenite (significantly less strong) is 702.5 deg. Celsius. Also, if a steel structure is exposed to a temperature just below or at the eutectic (702.5 deg.) for a period of time, martinsite is formed (very weak). All it would take is a few I-beams to lose their structural integrity before the "chain reaction" would start.

    Do YOU believe that office furnishing fires can cause a 48 story steel framed building to collapse in a pile of melted beams and pulverized concrete?

    So how did you handle the appraiser?

    BoomAndBustCycle says

    Update... PMI was removed.. Appraisal came in over $100k above what I needed to remove PMI. Just got a nice sized HELOC approved for some maintenance to the house I was putting off. That 10% down 2011 purchase is feeling very timely at the moment.
