    How Many Floors Will The New 1 World Trade Centre Have? I believe the two previous Buildings had 101 floors each, will the one just built be any higher?

  • Why Was The Song “Proud To Be An American” Chosen As The Theme Song For The 9/11 Terror Bombing? Anyone who is old enough to remember the sad days after the World Trade Centers 1, 2 and 7 were bombed will remember Lee Greenwood’s “Proud To Be An American” being played on the teevee for like a year straight.

    Why was this song chosen to be the theme song for the 9/11 Terror Bombings?

    • Curator says:

      Isn’t the song called “God Bless the USA” and wasn’t the WTC attacked by planes?
      The WTC was bombed in 1993

      The song was extremely (and annoyingly) popular during the Gulf War against Iraq. It was probably chosen because of it’s moderness and due to the fact that we returned to war against Iraq as a result of the 9/11 attacks

    What’s The Connection Between The Matrix Jump Program? And the falling man in 9/11 attacks? The man who was performing a free fall from the World trade center.
    Could the writer of the movie be a prophet who sees the future?
    Picture showing the weird similarity.

    It’s weird that the man who jumped from the towers in 9/11 didn’t show any sign of struggling just like Neo.

  • Tlmfax says:

    The People Who Jumped From The World Trade Centre? I know this is a touchy subject and I don’t mean any disrespect, but i’m curious.

    for all those people who chose to jump from the World Trade Center on 9/11, I don’t know how to put this.. like wouldn’t they have passed out while on their way down from lack of oxygen etc? or do you think they were fully conscious up until the point they hit the floor?
