Are you talking about Morbo's post or are you talking about the question in the OP?

If you're talking about the question in the OP, I don't see why that's even a little funny. They should test it regardless of pretty much any other variables.

The Mythbusters use such crude and flawed methods of testing things that they would come to a conclusion that would not relate to reality. They are not using any rigor in their testing and rarely try to keep error caused by their testing methods out of the results. They are definitely not scientists so I would not trust them to get it right. Computer simulation is also not acceptable because the simulation always has built in bias for certain parameters or scenarios due to the simulation creator's focus on specific aspects of the test they are running which results in an unnatural outcome. Only from building new towers from the same plans and using as similar materials as possible and crashing similar planes into them can we get a proper test. The rub is that the materials play such a huge part of this and modern steel and concrete will change the tower properties immensely so the test would not be accurate. There are just so many variables in this that I don't really see a way to test this properly not matter who tests it.

I think they do a better job at what they've done, when they did it, than anyone else on Earth could/would have done. I think the negativity expressed in your comment originates from jealous academics who feel like they've been put to shame for not producing more than a tiny fraction of the grandiose experiments the Mythbusters have put together. I'd bet on average they've put out somewhere between zero and one on average, statistically speaking.

The Mythbusters could definitely contribute facts to this conspiracy, and perhaps solve the entire thing.

Are you an academic?

I am not an academic but it does not take one to know that Mythbusters is flawed. Many of their experiments are rudimentary analogs that end up testing something different than their intended topic without them knowing it. It does not take a highly credentialed scientist to spot this and anyone with enough science knowledge can see the flaws. They are entertaining for sure but that should not bee conflated with proper scientific testing. I've seen plenty of citizen scientists pull off much more rigorous scientific tests in YouTube videos than Mythbusters so it doesn't take much outside of some care and attention to detail when constructing a simple test. The WTC tower collapse test would not be simple in any way so I don't think anyone could adequately put it to test with accurate results. The truth will have to come from other methods since we can't reproduce this.

Does anyone have the videos the Alex Jones talks about someone announcing that they're going to blow up Building 7, and everyone should stand back? For anyone who doesn't know, Building 7 is a building that blew up and collapsed during 9/11 and nothing ever touched it; it was a controlled demolition or something. Or videos of the base of the towers exploding? I've heard about that yet never seen anything on it.
