We know there isn't going to be any twins. So why talk about it, it's pretty much pointless. We should just stay on topic.

Power has nothing to do with height.

You're just saying this because you're desperate for Twin Towers. There is no situation whatsoever where they look like twins. You see, a strong criteria for buildings to look like twins is when they, you know, look the SAME. They look nothing like each other. But if you wanna think you see twins and it makes you feel better, then by all means do so.

If that's what you see, I suggest you get your eyes check.

LOL yeah seriously. Some people just want to see things that aren't there because they crave Twin Towers. I'm pretty accepting of 1 WTC not having a twin at this point in my life.

i am quite accepting of it too i don't see how u cant fathom the idea of it appearing to be a twin tower when their heights at the position would be the same. maybe you should get your brain checked.

Apparently you're not as accepting as you say. Who cares about the heights of buildings at random vantage points? They look nothing alike! You can even tell how far apart they are from that angle which makes you think they're twins. It's a rather moot point. Unless you mean they're fraternal twins...like, extremely fraternal.

I miss when this thread used to be full of more intelligent discussion, rather than bickering about this crap. Pretty lame.

One building is clearly glass, while the other one isn't. The buildings dont even have the same shape. And why would somebody need their brain check, when we know the two buildings aren't related.

Certainly was a lot of rain. Too bad it didn't cool the weather off though, just made it more into a muggy steambath.

I hope moderators don't barge in here and wipe out these posts for being off-topic, it's not like people are posting pictures that frequently anymore since that incident.
