"Truthers" = Fruitcakes

  Once, again, it is time to expose “truthers” for the morons they are.

            Let’s return to “Truther” A, who I mentioned in two previous articles here and here.

            First, “ Truther” A wanted to know if Fox News was afraid to say 9/11  and claimed to be sourcing it, yet he also claims he never watches TV-  anyone else see the obvious problem here?  He also claimed that Fox refused to show any news articles for 9/11 in that search window,

            However, yet another fellow debunker, who I will call Fellow Debunker 4, shot that down and provided this link.  Furthermore, when fellow debunker 4 went to the Fox News site and typed “9/11”  into the search window, he came up with over 8000 hits.  This leaves either two possibilities: 1) In the space of the 30-60 minutes of the exchange between “Truther” A  and Fellow Debunker 4, Fox News somehow managed to slap together 8000+ articles, or 2) “Truther” A is lying. Hmm, I’m more inclined to go with the latter choice.

            Next, “Truther” A didn’t realize that Pennsylvania is between DC and Minnesota, even after another fellow debunker, fellow debunker 5, pointed that fact out and provided the flight paths.   “Truther” A insisted that a plane going from DC to Minnesota would fly west first, then turn north.  At this point, Fellow Debunker 5 correctly pointed out that, rather than flying west, then north, the plane would be much more likely to simply fly northwest, which is faster, shorter, and more fuel efficient.  Clearly, “Truther” A has never heard of the Pythagorean Theorem. As any math book will tell you, the Pythagorean Theorem states that “ the sum of the squares of the 2 sides of a right triangle equal the square of the hypotenuse, or, in simpler terms, A2 + B2 = C2.

                As a hypothetical explanation and assuming you drive in a straight line-  and before any “truther” points out that the Earth is round, I KNOW that- hence, the phrases “HYPOTHETICAL EXPLANATION,” and “ ASSUMING YOU DRIVE IN A STRAIGHT LINE- “  let’s say you drive 50 miles due west from point A to point B, then hang a right and drive 100 miles due north from point B to point C.   You driven a total of 150 miles, but you aren’t actually 150 miles from your starting point.  Draw a line from Point C to Point A and you’ll have the hypotenuse.  We know the length of side A and B of the right triangle, so we simply plug in the numbers, 502 + 1002 = 2500 + 10,000 = 12,500 = C2. Now, we take the square root of 12,500, which is about 112 miles.

            Of course, getting back to the planes, planes very rarely fly in a straight line-  they follow a flight plan, not to mention the fact, that the plane’s flight plan has to be curved to follow the earth’s curve.  Otherwise, the plane will have a slight problem getting to its destination.

            “Truther” A also buys the claim that Rumsfeld announced that $23 million was missing at the Pentagon on September 10, 2001 as more “proof” of a conspiracy.  However, this quote from 9/11myths.com  tells you what Rumsfeld REALLY said: “The adversary’s closer to home. It’s the Pentagon bureaucracy. Not the people, but the processes. Not the civilians, but the systems… The technology revolution has transformed organizations across the private sector, but not ours, not fully, not yet. We are, as they say, tangled in our anchor chain. Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. We cannot share information from floor to floor in this building because it’s stored on dozens of technological systems that are inaccessible or incompatible.”

       Clearly, the money is still there-  they just couldn’t track it due to outdated systems ( reference ).

            This is when Fellow Debunker pointed out the obvious flaw with that claim: Why announce a cover-up 24 hours before the cover-up-  that kind of defeats the whole purpose of a cover-up.  That and why announce there is evidence the day before you destroy it.  The dumbest people  on the face of the earth aren’t THAT dumb.  Hell, even “truthers” aren’t THAT dumb.

            Then again, “Truther” A is the same idiot who refuses to believe that while fire will flow in any direction it has fuel ( fuel, in this case, meaning anything combustible), it flows fastest up due to the plain simple fact that fire is hot and HEAT RISES.

            Clearly, there’s more than one type of fruitcake making the rounds this time of year.  Oh, wait, I shouldn’t insult fruitcakes like that.
