Now it would be nice if somebody would have a helicopter drone thing that could fly over the site and take pictures.

Well, according to that diagram the BK is just under 800 metres, the ICC is only 454 metres, SWFC has the original circular opening, and ESB has the same roof height as 1WTC. We need to use SSP, not whatever site that is, which always messes up the diagrams.

Insert the word "even" before shorter and you'll have what he was trying to say.

Stop trying to stick up for a fellow Georgian
Seriously though, after you posted your first response, I looked at the graph numbers and understood what he was trying to say.

Looking at his signature, I doubt he's a Georgian.

I figured you were alluding to Macon. It's about 2 hours north of where I live.
