Have I mentioned the Troofers recently?

Oooh, goody. The troofers stage a comeback. Friend DEG spends a lot of time with his chewtoys over at the JREF forums. Me, I skulk; what I've got to say has been cribbed from engineers and they've said it first.
So there's a History Channel special coming up on them. And one of the Hoofnagles over at the denialism blog has a small Galileo invocation video.

From the "my god these people are dumb files" is this clip from last night's History Channel documentary 9/11 conspiracies.

Popular Mechanics has a great debunking of their bunk. If you feel like it, wander over to the JREF forums and see them trying to rebunk.

The 9/11 Lies Are Out There: Editor's Notes - Popular Mechanics
"Everyone is entitled to his own opinion," the great Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan of New York was fond of saying. "He is not entitled to his own facts."

Debunking the 9/11 Myths: Special Report - Popular Mechanics
Healthy skepticism, it seems, has curdled into paranoia. Wild conspiracy tales are peddled daily on the Internet, talk radio and in other media. Blurry photos, quotes taken out of context and sketchy eyewitness accounts have inspired a slew of elaborate theories: The Pentagon was struck by a missile; the World Trade Center was razed by demolition-style bombs; Flight 93 was shot down by a mysterious white jet. As outlandish as these claims may sound, they are increasingly accepted abroad and among extremists here in the United States.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to grind my teeth in frustration.
