Other than the WTC and the building next door, has such a "pancake"
collapse ever occurred before in a modern building?

Could it have taken an extra 0.001s per floor?


If they toppled sideways, which direction would they have fallen?



As I understand this is the outline of your arguement:

If they collapsed by controlled demolotion then they would fall
straight down.
They fell straight down, therefore they collapsed by controlled
demolition.

Is that right?

Yah, sure. And what about the little building next door that went down
the same way? Owned by the same person?

The odds against three going down the same way are ASTRONOMICAL!
