I wonder if they resmelted the steel from the old towers to make the new one as a tribute sort of thing?

I understand the science. Well maybe not the Einstein but. But I still find this somehow magical. It's about 4 mins but watch it through.

 

I'm struggling with the Einstein bit as well. Where is Mr. Heath?

Einstein's theory of relativity. Worth having a read.

 

Same principle as sitting on a train in a station alongside another train. When your train starts to move, is it your train moving or the other one? 

 

Relative to you (who is not moving relative to your train) the other train and station is moving.

As for the banks, to paraphrase the Who: "Meet the new politician, same as the old politician"

 

A  good old boys club at the top with nods and winks between the lobbyists, banks ans politicians who can all get mutually rich on the backs of the general populace. Nobody does their job, just look after number one first while on the public's payroll.

 

Heads would literally have to roll like the French Revolution to get change (and for how long???)

 

All of Wall Street is rigged with trading delays for the little investor while the big accounts are on the superhighway. 

You're either Big people or you're nothing.    :(

What went on back then was morally reprehensible but as Paul says, no-one has been charged, very few have been fired.

 

What I find rather perverse is that we rely almost totally on these 'fat cats' for our public finances. Its a fact that almost 30% of all income tax is paid by 1% of the working population. That's around 30,000 people, the majority of whom work on the City and the SE in financial services. For every £1m bankers bonus, the treasury takes around £600k. Around 10% of the working population (40% tax rate payers) generate some 66% of all income tax.

 

Severely restricted their earning potential, no matter how politically expedient and voter satisfying that might be, would have a major impact on income tax receipts. I hate to say it, but we probably need these buggers.
