    I would be questioning the date? 9 1963 = 666. These events aren’t natural. These are satanic rituals.

    Making it the second man made disaster in history. Along with the corrupt 9/11 (INSIDE JOB!!) Tjose buildings went down via a controlled demolition.

    I highly dislike it when narrators are told to narrate by trying to mimick a certain accent, mostly when they are trying to mimick the interviewee's accent. It's so dumb. Get your heads organized, will you? And, please, narrate with your own natural (American, British, or Australian) accent. I mean, it's so cringy and at times I can't even understand what the narrator is saying...

    Pretty much a replication of the Johnstown Pennsylvania flood in 1889.
